Tickets are being purchased for another business trip, this time to sunny Orlando, home of the Mouse. It’s been a few years since we were there (This child is now a part-time model and Harvard law professor), but we had lots of fun while we were there; instead of relying on Corporate America to entertain us, I went looking for some alternatives. Jen has already been to Gatorland and Kennedy Space Center, but I’d like to see both, if possible. Any suggestions?

    WTF? Was it all the HTML in your post?

  3. the idiot says:

    Yeah, the assholes are trying to advertise for fake pills on this site, of all places. Sorry if the comments aren’t going through the first time.

    I think I may have told you that I posted about a piece of gam*ling legislation on our work blog several months ago – we’re STILL getting comment and trackback spam from that.


  5. the idiot says:

    It would make sense to me if I was writing about spammy subjects here, but I’m not. However, a close look at my referrer logs show links from a zillion fake spam sites-I still haven’t figured that one out yet.

    Do their little spiders key off items in the “interesting …” sidebar?

    Call me. I have a sister in New Smyrna and a sister-in-law and family in Daytona. They can direct you to some out-of-the-way spots sans touristas. There is a great little museum in Daytona that is a wonderful way to beat the heat and get some kulcher.

    Luff for baby lawyers.

    Keep in mind that it’s tropical summer here and we get a driving thunderstorm just about every afternoon.

    Here are some fun alternatives to Disney:

    Take a dive in 72-degree Wekiwa Springs, at a lovely State Park located just 15 minutes north of downtown Orlando. Very old-Florida and laid back. Plus it’s hotter than Hades here right now so it would feel good.

    Also, the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour is laid back and fun. Everyman’s grandpa serves as tour guide on a 45 minute tour of a few lovely lakes. You will see Florida wildlife, old vacation homes of the very rich, cool canals through a ritzy neighborhood, and possibley Carrot Top (!!) who lives and breathes in Winter Park.

    Carrot Top? OOOH, I’m bringin’ a high-powered rifle to take potshots that googly-eyed meth addict. “DANCE, funny man, DANCE!”

    That’s entertainment for the whole week, right there.
