Thank you to everyone who entered the Gibson Girl Caption Contest!! You guys totally crack me up. After a lot of thought and giggles, I have finally decided on a winner and runner-up. And so like the Miss America contest, I’m going to announce the runner-up first. Drumroll please…
Five Dollar Footlong
Submitted by mmax13/Margaret! This truly made me laugh out loud, until the song got stuck in my head and I had to stick a pencil in my ear to get it to stop.
And the winner is…
After both her career and her stature were cut short in a tragic workplace accident, former magician’s assistant Margaret “Leggy Peggy” McGee went on to find success as a model for Charles Gibson
Submitted by JC! It’s long for a caption, but I completely cracked up.

Second, in pursuit of more noble ends, I will be attending my third residency at Vermont College from the 10th through the 21st. But don’t let that fool you! Through the power of time, space, binary numbers, the interwebz, and Tinkerbell, MYWTM content you know and love will still be magically appearing on your screen just like it does when I’m home! It does, however, mean that I probably won’t be able to respond to comments, even though I love reading them. MYWTMouseketeer and husband Kevin will be taking over administration duties including updating Facebook. As always the best way to know when new content is posted is by subscribing or through Facebook.
AND, we’ve got a very special surprise in store for you! Kevin will be making a guest post, and yes, he’s just as funny as I am. Often funnier.
And and, MYWTM has some really awesome stuff planned in the coming months. In September, we’ll be floating with the Mouse on a Disney Cruise! Yes, there will be a full report. Who knew I was going to be this thorough?
We’re a little over halfway through the year in my little project here, and you might be concerned about if I’ve got enough things left to do or if I’m going to be reduced to just talking to myself. Despite the fact that blogging is totally just talking to yourself, I made out a list and off the top of my head, thought of over 60 things I haven’t blogged about (not counting the blog posts in the summer blockout pipeline). Honestly, I’m a little nervous that the year is going to run out before I run out of things to do. But as always, I shall try my best.
My readers deserve nothing less!
And finally, we went to see Cars 2 tonight. I really liked it. I didn’t think it was as good as the first, but it was just a different type of movie. What I’m really looking forward to is Carsland, pronounced Cars Land, over at Disney’s California Adventure. They’ve been working on a whole new giant area of the park, completely new, themed for Cars. It looks like it’s going to be amazing. Unfortunately, it doesn’t open until next June, so I won’t get to see it unless I buy a regular admission ticket :(. But anyway, I took a picture of the fence and you can make out the top of Radiator Springs in the background.
This is gonna be awesome!
