Hey everyone! Back when I posted about King Arthur Carrousel, which was actually one of my earliest MYWTM posts, I mentioned that all of the horses have names. Or maybe someone else mentioned it. Or something. Anyway, it was mentioned. Well I finally swung by City Hall and got the list. I was a bit disappointed with said list because I was expecting, I don’t know, some sort of way to tell each horse from the other, but hey, you work with what you got.
All the pretty little ponies
Because my cell phone picture is such high quality and the picture is sideways, I went ahead and re-created the list here just for you. I did it in a table and then posted it from Word, so if it’s all jacked up, then blame WordPress.
Some of these names don’t sound very Disney to me–Red Devil? Lucifer’s Rose? Hal? Just kidding about Hal, by the way. And I did a Google search on “Chodis” and let me tell you, that was NOT what I was expecting (search result is rated R, parental consent is advised). But now if you’ve been burning with the questions of what the carrousel horses’ names are, there ya go.
UPDATE: Thank goodness for my sharp-eyed readers! Jamie says, “I think you may have received a typo on the list, I think the adult sounding horse is claudius. Check them out http://findingmickey.squarespace.com/king-arthurs-carrousel-horses.” And my god, I can’t TELL you how relieved I am that “Chodis” is incorrect. But then it makes me wonder, who would make that kind of typo? On purpose? Hmmm. Anyway, Claudius. Phew.
It’s been busy over here at Chez MYWTM. I have finally finished my critical thesis for my Master’s program and am just waiting for the final sign-off from my advisor before I can print and submit. Which cannot come a moment too soon. I have also been consuming mass quantities of Oreos (Oreos: The Official Snack Food of Shelby’s Thesis) and my waistline is probably going to be pretty happy that that’s over.
It’s holiday time at Disneyland–one of my favorite times of the year. I can’t wait to get into the park to start photographing all of the holiday decorations and attractions. Did I mention I love holiday time at Disneyland? Because I do. The “snow” after the fireworks show gets me choked up every time. However, the holidays also may mean a bit fewer posts here at MYWTM. Best thing to do is head over there —-> and subscribe to MYWTM with your email address. You’ll get a lovely little message every time I update and you can easily click on over to see all that MYWTM has to offer. Alternatively, or both, you can follow me on Facebook. I always update Facebook when there’s a new post.
I’m also a bit depressed to mention that I’m not going to make my initial goal of Doing Everything by the end of the year. I forgot to go on Splash Mountain when it was warm out and I’m not doing a water ride in the Fall/Winter, so…sorry. I also neglected to document the pre-holiday Haunted Mansion, and I’m sure there are other things I managed to miss along the way that I can’t do now.
There is some good news though–we have decided to renew our passes for another year, so MYWTM lives on!!! Next year I believe I will start reporting on the Mouse-Next-Door as well, so there will be lots of fun content in the upcoming months.
I hope all of you are getting ready for the joyous holiday season! Happy Turkey Day and Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Solstice, and of course, Festivus for the rest of us! Okay, I know the holiday greetings are a little premature, but I don’t want to forget them.
