November 26, 2012: Round up the usual suspects.

Busy week coming up and I have another virus. The good new is, after an afternoon of sleeping on the chaise, I do feel a bit better. Tomorrow is a pre-test for my students, Tuesday is composition for the 6th grade showcase and an academic team meet with Russell, Wednesday is 21st Century after school and FPS practice, Thursday is 6th grade academic team practice, Friday is Allison’s Christmas Concert at Kentucky Christian, Saturday is the 6th Grade Showcase and there is a revival at Belle’s Chapel Free Will Baptist Church every night this week. You know my standard response, wow.

Excuses, excuses, we read them every day.

As an early Christmas present, in 1864, Charles L. Dodgson delivered a handwritten manuscript to the 12-year-old daughter of Henry George Liddell, a local church official. Dodgson had been working on the manuscript for some time and later published his gift to Alice Liddell as two books, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass under his pen name, Lewis Carroll. There are a number of things you can do as a tribute to Alice and all the characters but we like the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the Magic Kingdom.

One of my favorite movies was released on this date in 1942, the great Warner Brothers film, Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and the ever-creepy Peter Lorre. There are three ways to celebrate this movie, which I know of, at Walt Disney World. First, the trailer for the movie plays in the queue for the Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Second, in the attraction, the famous airport scene, complete with airplane is featured but you only see the front half of the plane. Third, and I’m pretty sure I am right about this, the other half of that plane is in the Jungle Cruise attraction at the Magic Kingdom. So enjoy two parks with one purpose.

Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
