  • Thu, 18:44: Sweets incl. cookies, cupcakes, Krispie treats, warm choc cake and a salted caramel cake both a la mode, key lime t…
  • Thu, 21:13: Projection show is OK, but a slim replacement for the Osborne Lights. Lots of screening from palm trees etc--which are really needed.
  • Fri, 08:18: Debbie gave us a ride back to GF. I took my car to fill it up w gas, having gotten lower than I like. Not easy to get back to GF!

  • Fri, 09:11: I missed a change in plan--S is not having breakfast with us. She is providing a news feed on the line for D23 event shop via friends. :)
  • Fri, 09:14: S23 registration opens at 10, shop at 2. At 8:30 about 40 people were already in line for the shop.

  • Fri, 11:15: We have been wrist-banded for the store, apparently the general "let these people in" sign. Picked up swag bag & credentials at registration

  • Fri, 11:22: Store will open in only 2 hours and 10 minutes, she chirps brightly.

  • Fri, 14:03: We are in the merchandise room! In another queue, but at least this is progress.
  • Fri, 14:35: Process is that small groups are let into actual sales area, where there are more lines to actually get the pins. Clothing etc has no lines

  • Fri, 14:49: They'll give us a shopping bag, we go by all the pins making selections, then pay for pins. Then can shop the rest of the stuff.
