    I hope you had a good time at Disneyland for your birthday, Brandon.

    Boy, was I surprised :eek: to see you and the group sitting next to the table where I was with my friend Amy, also celebrating her birthday, which actually was on Thursday. (of course, I wouldn't have been surprised if I came to visit this board more often :( )

    At first we were amused by the large group of people that were playing with the kiddie menu/hats, then we concentrated on our own food.

    I noticed Brandon, because he was facing me and I thought, "Hey, that guy looks like someone I know! Can't be him though."

    But I couldn't keep from staring at him. He looked right at me and I didn't see any recognition in his face, so I thought I was wrong. I still had this nagging feeling though.......

    So finally, I realized I should look at the rest of the people at the table and see if I recognized any of them (and stop staring at the cute guy I thought I recognized [face_blush] ;) ) and, lo and behold, I recognized Jeff Teel. Then I knew it had to be Brandon!

    He jumped up and gave me a big hug, which I always like from nice guys. :p

    I know it's not a real big restaurant, but I think it may have more than one level. What are the odds that two groups of Star Wars Fans (even though one group only had 2 in it) would be seated next to each other. I'm glad it was, though!

    Anyway, if Friday is your actual birthday, then I hope it's a good day, too.



    Happy Birthday, Brandon! :)

    BTW, I forgot to ask-what's up with the top on Slave Leia on those pictures, Brandon? What's that black above the top she's wearing? Looks kinda like tape.

    Was her top cut a little too low and she was a bit "overexposed"? It looks wrong, somehow. Though maybe she was trying to keep a "G" rating on it. ;)

    You should have seen the Slave Leia that was at Dragon*Con. Except for just the skirt part, the whole costume was painted on. One of the Rebel Legion guys was really fascinated with her and had lots of pics of her in his photo album! :p

    I have some pics! I didn't have my camera with me all the time, so some of the stellar moments were caught by someone else. Brandon, your party was such a blast, and I was glad to be able to help out the way I could. So anyhoo, here's some of the random pics I happened to capture that day, enjoy:

    Disneyland, wooo

    Happy Birthday Brandon...er...Captain!

    First of all I want to say thank you (as should everyone who got in that didn?t already have a pass) to the very amazing Victoria for putting my birthday party together. I have always had great birthday parties but I have always had to plan my self. But not this year, Victoria handled everything, and I have to honestly say that is was the greatest and sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me. Because her grandmother works at Disneyland she came up with this whole idea. And got 9 free tickets so that even my friends with out the year round passes could still go, that?s including my mother and her boyfriend.

    First we all meet out in front of Disneyland (knowing that most of my friends would come late, I told them all to meet at 8am, knowing I wasn?t getting in there tell like 10 lol) the funny thing is non of them were hard to spot, for some reason it was unofficial black day

    gezz that really says a lot about my birth doesn?t it?
    Anyway, sense Disneyland can some times be Nazis; we weren?t aloud to bring none of my presents nor me cake! So we found a picnic area to the right of the entrances (witch I never even new existed) and had cake. (Remember it?s about 9am and we all haven?t really even had breakfast) But all that was forgotten when I got to see my cake! The most amazing cake in the firkin world!! Also taken care of by the wonderful Victoria.

    It?s not everyday you get to eat Capt. Jack Sparrow
    Once we tried to get the gifts in, we were denied. So I had to open my presents at the entrance LOL.

    [image=http://images2.fotki.com/v18/photos/1/129980/599518/bla006-vi.jpg]
    April got me a very cool Jack Skeleton posabel doll. (very cool)
    [image=http://images2.fotki.com/v18/photos/1/129980/599518/bla010-vi.jpg] Victoria got me a very cool license plate frame for my future truck. And a lot of other sweet pirate stuff for me car.
    After all that it was in to DIESNYLAND! And can you guess what ride we went on first? [image=http://images5.fotki.com/v55/photos/1/129980/599518/bla012-vi.jpg] [image=http://images5.fotki.com/v55/photos/1/129980/599518/bla015-vi.jpg] HAY! ARRRRRRRRRRRR!
    [image=http://images2.fotki.com/v18/photos/1/129980/599518/bla014-vi.jpg]

    After a fun ride on Pirates Of The Caribbean we hoped over to the Bayou (were I have always wanted to eat since I was a little kid!) where we had 11 O clock reservations, made by Victoria. Where we also ran into Lori from the OC Fan Force, I think you can see her little bet in the pictures.

    I think Victoria got stoned in this shot, lol.
    [image=http://images5.fotki.com/v55/photos/1/129980/599518/bla019-vi.jpg]

    After that we all went over to California adventure and did stuff over there for about half the day.

    I decided that we should try a beetles shot here

    [image=http://images5.fotki.com/v55/photos/1/129980/599518/bla024-vi.jpg]

    In line for the roller coaster, the longest we waited all day. It wasn?t bad 45 minuets. We found things to entertain us.
    [image=http://images5.fotki.com/v55/photos/1/129980/599518/bla029-vi.jpg] Like impersonating a fish jumping out of water.

    lmao, awesome Brandon! The pics were twice as fun with your storytelling....and I was not stoned! I was probably thinking about what you kept calling my poor Monte Cristo sandwich, lol. You are soooo evil. Yeah I love the pic of Justin and Brandon, it rocks. And I'm still in awe of what AJ was doing with the tree...
