Welp, by now I had hoped to catch the shuttle lift off, but it's been scrubbed the last two times we went out to watch it take off and is now tenatively scheduled for a Friday lift=off. That means we'll do the whole thing over again tomorrow leaving around 5pm to see a 1am ish lift off. If it doesn't fly Friday I'll have to cancel my plane reservations back and stick around here. (*&(*&()*)*#%#

Universal Orlando is nice. I'm staying at the Hard Rock and going to citywalk occassionally when I get bored. I'm keeping a weird schedule since the launch tries have been at 1am. I'm like a vampire, I sleep all day and then either go to Pat O'briens or Kennedy Space Center at night. Getting kinda surreal.

There's alot more kids here than I anticipated, and they have a lot of activities for kids too. I thought this was a more grown up place. The Kitchen's (the hotel restaurant) is very hit or miss. I had the worst meal there the first time I tried to get pot roast and it was like boiled meat and raw vegetables. But there breakfast buffet is good. They also play music 24/7 on the lawn and in the hallways, and if you've got goot ears like me you can hear it at night or during the day when you're trying to sleep. Overall though it's not too bad. I had planned to go to a cheaper hotel once I saw the launch. Citywalk's great though. It's much smaller than the one in LA though.
