So weird hearing myself talk, lol! This is so nice reliving the weekend and reliving the Podcast taping! I haven't had many reasons to smile this week, but I've been grinning for the past hour listening.:mickey:

I was so bummed we missed the Duffy meet. Stupid Sandy had us all back in the rooms working for a lot of that weekend.

It was the BEST meet ever though!

Just started listening myself. Had to fast forward to the "best of" to hear my response. Big surprise, I don't sound like a complete dork.

Now I'm sad...it was such a fun weekend. Can't wait for the next one!

Aside from the Soarin ride and the Column Meet, my favorite part of the weekend, was actually on Monday, so it's kind of outside of the meet. Nikki (BriarRose0708) happened to be standing ahead of us at the opening of AK. We walked to EE together, and ended up riding 4 times together, then had the best ride on the Safari ever. It was just so much fun to get to spend some time chatting and having fun!

You sounded great! Glad you were persuaded to talk. ;)

And I always sound like a dork. Who cares if you do? :D

MELANIE!!!
Congratulations on PROPERLY saying "And We're Out"! :high5:
Now would you please teach that to the rest of your American friends?!?!
- Sincerely, Canada.

haha No seriously though it was great to hear the re-cap of all the events that Jenn and I weren't able to get to. We had such a fun time - honestly - we're still laughing about it. Such good memories.

My "Best Of" was watching my sister enjoy her Jellyrolls Hangover. heh heh heh :ack:
Just kidding Jenn. No, really, it was either the cab ride back to the Contemporary with Ian, or it was the Trivia with Magical Journeys because it was so cool to finally put everyone's faces to their names!

Can't wait for ICOT-20!

Buttercup
11-10-2012, 03:42 PM
Oooh! I thought of one more "Best Of" --
chatting outside of Jellyrolls with John about our past lives in radio broadcasting. Without that conversation, I never would have learned that John has his own online radio station, and I gotta tell you buddy... we have SUCH similar taste in music! Well done! I spend hours in front of my computer every day for work and JohnFM is a wonderful companion! :number1:

I've listened to the first hour so far on my drive into work today. I keep giggling at how much it sounds like Ian and Gary have lost their voices...perhaps from the Jellyroll shenanigans the night before! :D Just turrible!!

We're very sad we had to miss the meet by a few days, as it seems so many wonderful people were in attendance.

Very glad for those who got to go. It sounds like everyone had an amazing time!

I've been laughing so much the last two days on my drive into work as I listen to this podcast. People in the cars beside me must be wondering what's wrong with me!

Ok, my turn! My BEST OF was the meetup above Norway...which continued into the meetup at Jellyrolls. It was so fantastic to get to spend time with fellow Intercotees. You guys are all like long lost family! Definitely a pleasure to meet you all and can't wait to do it again at ICOT20!

John, thank-you so much for all the hard work you do and thank-you to the moderators as well. You guys are amazing!!! :number1:

I've just gotten to the part of the podcast where we are talking about Strollers & Groceries. I wanted to add a few things to my review that I didn't think of on the spot.

I mentioned that S&G sent me a text that my stroller had arrived. I did not mentioned that none of the other stroller companies I have rented from have done that.

I also forgot to mention that the stroller came with the full instruction manual, a sheet of helpful hints, and a free rain cover. Another plus is they carry a stroller rated for 65 pounds. This is great for children who are tall like mine.

Friday I received an email from S&G asking for feedback on my experience with them.

I am highly impressed. :thumbsup:

I've been on Intercot for a while and just started listening to the podcasts recently but I have to say.... especially after having been with all of you... this is a GREAT group and it was a pleasure being with you all.

:rocks:

I'm in for #ICOT20. But without KIDS!

Finally had time to finish listening to the podcast. Great job by the crew and the audience. I'm sorry I couldn't stay for the second half, but listening was a nice way to remember the weekend.

Thanks so much to John for creating such a wonderful site and a wonderful event. And thanks to all the great people I met. Intercot truly IS the best Disney forum around.

And a special thank you to everyone who made Laurence feel special on his 7th birthday and to the podcast crew for calling him up. He listened Saturday night and can't wait to tell all his friends that he was on a podcast. :cloud9:

He did a fantastic job. But I'm still jealous of his droids. I didn't have time to go make any. :(

They are his new WDW obsession. He convinced his sister to make three and then we went back on Monday and made three more. I have a feeling we might be making more in December too. :)

Just finished the podcast. Really sorry I missed being there live, but Sandy had me leaving early on Sunday.
It was a very special get-together. Can't wait till the next one.
Even though I was never mentioned in the podcast I'll still probably visit the our site but I am cutting back to three times a day. :D
I guess nice people attract nice people - this 15th celebration is testament to that and our leader and moderators.
I wish all good health and happiness until our 20th.

Just finished listening to this podcast -- I am so bummed that I had to leave early and miss the recording -- sounds like you guys had a blast!

I agree the ICOT15 meet was so great -- I am looking forward to the next one -- it makes me want to sponsor a mini-meet at D23 in August at Disneyland ... I'm gonna be there, maybe an ICOT ride on Pirates or something or dole whips or churros or ... Hmmmm.
