AMERICA IS AWESOME!

Posted 11 August 2009 - 08:17 AM

I thought I was going to stay at Disney Lodge but stayed at a hotel called the Hyatt. But it's a good thing I'm not staying at Disney cos some other family said it costs $200 for there meal and there's only 4 of them, there is 5 of us and you have to take 3 buses and a boat to get out of there. But so far I've been to Wet'n'Wild twice and Universal and I seen SPIDERMAN!! I went to Sea World and seen Shamu! Also the light switches are cool, I don't know why but I just think they're awesome! There's a restraunt/bar that I've been going to called Millers Alehouse.

I got a Hulk bobblehead from Universal aswell!

The light switches? This one needs further study. Where are you from, anyway? Need some context.

Well, welcome to America. When you get a chance, you should check out the rest of the country. Tons of neat places that are all natural that make Disney look like crap!

Strangely, the farther south you go in Florida, the more northern it becomes. It's where we send our old folks to die. ;)

However, you're close enough to the south. Have some sweet tea, anything involving pig, biscuits and gravy, and a chicken fried steak. For a laugh, if you get to feeling homesick, got to an "English" style pub. They bring my UK cousins to tears. If you're far enough south in Florida, look for a Jewish style deli; order the pastrami, bring a doggie bag.

Have fun.

The USA isn't that exciting. Is Scotland a desert, and you all sleep in large huts made out of dingo shit? :\

You're thinking of Australia but Scotland is equally boring and yet completely different. You know what they think of themselves?

It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference!

Good choice on the Hyatt. The Disney resorts are stupidly overpriced for the ammenities and Pretty much everywhere in orlando has a shuttle to the disney parks. If you really like the light switches, go to a place called Home Depot / Lowes whilst on this side of the pond you can usually buy all manner of US electrical components for less then $1 Outlets, switches, light sockets etc.

You don't have light switches in Scotland? Or are they just different than ours?

But Scotland gave the world golf. Ok, forget that. Bagpipes, emitting the sound of wailing cats. Right, forget that too; besides, they didn't invent the things. Kilts! Men dressed like catholic school girls... Ok, well, that was invented by an Englishman anyway. Sheep buggering?

Ok, I'm out.

Honestly, most places seem dull to the locals. I grew up in Florida; every bloody visitor had to go to Disney World, even though it was a couple hundred miles away. After the first dozen times it does loose it's charm.

In NYC you can always spot the tourists because they're looking up. No native Newyorker would be caught dead ogling the architecture; jaded disdain is the proper response. If the choices of aloof snubber or actually being open to what there is to see, I'll take the latter. ( Sometimes I still look up. )
