Mad Mex: The Gobblerito Returns!

Hey Everyone!

For all those who know me well, know that I love food!  Well, I got an email a few weeks ago from the Mad Mex Restaurant stating that their Gobblerito is returning for the entire month of November.  It’s a burrito filled with turkey, mashed potatoes, bread stuffing, and corn and gravy (and you get cranberry sauce on the side too).

So, guess where we headed for lunch last Friday?  Oh yeah!  It actually felt like you were eating a Thanksgiving Day feast all inside a burrito and it was pretty good too!

If you get a chance, head down to Mad Mex and try one for yourself!

Have a good one!

If you have any questions about cruising with Disney, send them my way, and I’ll do the best I can to answer your questions.



Drawing 1 Class

Written by Joy Procida

Even though I’m not the greatest at drawing, I did decide to take a drawing class this semester. The class just finished up our midterm project. It was a project using pen and ink and brush and ink. Had to pick a picture, draw the picture, and then use pen and ink to fill it in………one side using a stippling technique and the other side using a cross hatch technique. It was a lot of work, but it was fun and rewarding knowing that I completed something that I would never have thought I could ever do.

For my picture, I chose one of the buildings from England inside World Showcase at the Epcot theme park at Walt Disney World. I tried to do a mock re-creation of Spaceship Earth behind the picture and a gray scale gradient for the background with brush and ink, but it did not quite come out the way I had hoped.  Here it is: 

Until next week!

The Music Composer

Written by Joy Procida

Hi there!

Here is an audio file that I created that gives an example of one of the songs that I composed a few years ago.  It was my own personal little Adventure that turned out to be pretty rewarding.   It took a  lot of work and patience, but if you really want to do something in this life, within reason of course…….like, I would not go jump off a bridge UNLESS I had a bungee cord, then do it!!!!  Have fun!  Life is a blast if you want it to be – even if with all the ups and downs.

Have a good one and enjoy life!!
