this place is just beyond a great restaurant. friendly staff. great food. good sized portions. definitely worth checking out to anyone in hunter's creek Orlando area.  we go once a week. they have cheap lunch specials. who can beat 2 rolls and soup or salad for $9? my boys love to tonkatsu.

#7 will miss

this goes with #8 won't miss.

explaining to people that those "cute little 2headed bugs" they're holding are lovebugs. it's not 2headed. you're giving 2 bugs a perch to do their thang! yep, they enjoy using your hand/arm/whatever part as a bed.

#7 won't miss

this 1 has gotten everything from funny to sick comments. here's the nicest way to put it.

you can't speak 2, 3, even 6 languages. but, are only bilingual if you speak Spanish. i don't want to come across as mean or rude. but, it's true. simple as can be put. enjoy your heritage. but, don't kill other peoples.

#6 will miss

everything being nearby and most open 24hrs. we're that close to Disney/universal studios/sea world. so, everything to open either late or 24hrs. you want to grocery shop at 3am? go to a restaurant at 3 am? tattoo? or whatever. yeah, it's open.

i started this as a joke to myself or even a reason to never come back here. i can't believe the emails I've gotten from people who want to put in their reasons. some funny, some nasty, even had a few we'll say were racists.  i will include the ones i agree with. sorry I'm not racists. those emails got deleted. i'll add names to the tags.

DISNEY

i live 10 minutes from this place and it's not all you would think it to be.
first off, it's expensive. people find out you live so close and go "you must go so often!" it's $80 a person...for 1 of the parks....to wait in a line most of the day.
second, i know people who work or have worked there. they pay crap. getting into the park free doesn't make up for it. you get yourself in free. then get "maingate passes". only so many a year. who goes alone?
third, you get sick of people who do work there going "you give a Disney discount?". do they give me a local discount.
fourth, everywhere you go you see Disney merchandise. not that it doesn't help these places (hopefully). but, damn, seeing mickey's head everywhere gets old.
i could go on and on about this one.

summer sun-showers.
it gets so hot and humid. then out of nowhere, a really heavy cool rain. not like it anywhere else. really. they only last 10 minutes tops.
you wear your sunglasses at night. how about during a heavy rain?

#4 will miss

being able to pretty much look however you want. you can have blue hair and tattoos or be conservative or wear a raccoon on your head. we're used to having so many people from so many places (living here or on vacation), so really anything goes. you don't get that eerie stare.

#4 won't miss

serious lack of non-chain restaurants.
this isn't all of Florida. but, I'm less than 10 miles from Disney. I'm not saying there are none. maybe 1 in 10 or so would be. and, when we do get a new place it's either super expensive or closes quickly. i visit family in other areas/states and they have places everywhere.

1 car household?

odd thought of the day

reading on Yahoo that to save money, become a 1 car family. that's the short version.

are these people for real?

i go into work early. like most of you are probably still sleeping. no buses this time of day. which also means i get off work at a different time then most people.  I'm not walking or biking 5+ miles in the dark. it's nutty enough in a car. same with coming home. between the heat and people out on their lunches, it's no safer. this would be a good idea if you lived in a place with 24 hour bus or subway service. most people don't.
the other driver in the house goes into work a regular 8-5 job. but, takes a child to daycare. it's over 10 miles.  again, this isn't a smart idea. this is Florida. it's hot and humid most of the year.

this is why i always say it's easy to tell people how to do something; actually doing it is another story.
