*sigh*

Here I go again.

Once more I am at the mercy of the U.S. Postal System, for yesterday he finally got around to sending me to Danielle’s…

I’ve had nightmares of this day.

Once more, I’ve been encased in suffocating blackness (at least this time with AIRHOLES!!!), void all of all company except the quiet strength of the foam noodles, with nothing to do but obsessively check my email (travelingtyrone@yahoo.com… email me! PLEASE!)

But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

I will finally be in some sane company (I think…) after 2 mortifying weeks with Tyler and 2 anguishing weeks with Joey. I can only hope that Danielle will not torture me by making me meet various TV characters and forcing me to fraternize with low brow human beings Joey calls ‘friends’… and I will no longer be forced to parade around You Tube like some glorified baseball on Tyler’s channel… yes… I am going to salvation.

I hope.

(maybe I should start looking forward to Mark’s…)

Tyrone

HELLO??? Tyrone here!!!

 

NOT THAT ANYONE CARES!!!

 

I mean, come on people!!! NO ONE IS READING THIS BLOG!!! Why not? What is wrong with it?? I know. It’s the fact that you all are biased against basketballs!!! Well I don’t care!!! Every time you visit this blog now, you leave a comment, and MAKE IT GOOD!!! Also, tell everyone you know about this. We need to get the traffic up!!! Now, it could be that you all are just sick of Joey. Which is very likely, but tomorrow, I am leaving for Danielle’s. Ok? OK!!! Let’s go people!!!

 

 

 

That is all.

Tyrone

I’m leaving tomorrow. That’s all I need to think about. Tomorrow. Joey had a pool party with some more of his ‘friends’. Sigh. It started off well.  

Yes. I fell in the cooler.

Yes. I fell in the cooler.

Isn’t that great???

 

Joey then threw me on the diving board.

Joey then threw me on the diving board.

All of his friends then started yelling JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! I mean, come on! Peer pressure!!

 

I realized I had never learned how to swim.

I realized I had never learned how to swim.

 I started coughing and choking, but then one of Joey’s friends named Lauren jumped in and threw me out, then started giving me mouth to mouth. Isn’t that gross??? EEEEWWW!!!

 

Tomorrow.

Tyrone

 

Oh. My. Gosh. Get. Me. Out. Of. Here. More. Periods. Anyway, Tyrone here. So, Joey is trying to “culture” me up. Or kill me. They’re looking about the same right now. So first, he decides to take me to the movies. So I thought we might be seeing some tasteful documentary or drama. Nope. We went to see ‘The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor’. Not kidding. I have proof.

 

 

See. I'm not joking. The Mummy. It says right there.

See. I'm not joking. The Mummy. It says right there.

And worse, Joey brought along his ‘friends’. Oh yes, he has some. I know, I know. I thought he was joking to. But then I met them. And found that they were about as crazy and PSYCHO as he is. 

 

This is me. Or half of me. In the theatre. In front of a Pepsi cup.

This is me. Or half of me. In the theatre. In front of a Pepsi cup.

I couldn’t take any pics during the movie, obviously. But you’re probably happy. I know I wouldn’t want to watch it. But I didn’t have any choice, now did I???

 

Here's me in front of a movie poster that was actually good. Go Batman!! (I'm the Joker's nose...)

Joey then took me home. I thought the torture was done. Then he pulled out Rock Band.

 

Do you have any smaller drums???

That was just the beginning. 

 

*sigh*

This is getting ridiculous.

This is getting ridiculous.

Then I found my forte.

 

I totally rocked out.

I totally rocked out.

After totally rocking ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Roxanne’, and ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, I grew a little tired.

 

In short, I fainted.

In short, I fainted.

So, today was okay. Mamma Mia was still better. “Mamma Mia! Here I go again! My, my. How can I resist you?” Type singing again. Gosh, I used quotes sarcastically a lot in this post. Quotes are fun, right??? *sigh*

Tyrone

Hey everybody. Its Tyrone. Sigh. Last night, Joey took me to a performance of ‘Mamma Mia’, the musical. Not the movie.

Me in the car on the way there. Don't let the smile deceive you.

Me in the car on the way there. Don't let the smile deceive you.

Let’s just say I was not looking forward to this. I’m not much of a musical guy. At dinner, they went to a ‘no basketballs allowed’ restaurant, so I had to stay in Joey’s pocket the entire time. THAT WAS NOT FUN! That had about as much air as Tyler’s box of death. But anyway, we got to the theatre finally.

 

This is me in front of the program. That girl on the program looked nothing like the one in the play.

Anyway, it was a pretty good play. It was funny, and ABBA is one of my all time favorite bands of all time (take a chance on me, if you need me, let me know!) That was me type-singing. 

 

This is me in the theatre. I have never seen so many shades of blue.

This is me in the theatre. I have never seen so many shades of blue.

Anyway, I had one gripe about the show. So, ABBA is Swedish, right??? And the show took place in Greece. And they all spoke English!!! Talk about inconsistent. Anyway, I had a pretty good time. (I’m not telling Joey that though… he hasn’t stopped singing ‘Lay All Your Love On Me’ since we got home.

Peace Out.

Tyrone

Hey everybody!! Tyrone here. Well, finally, after what must have been months in the US Postal system, I arrived at Joey’s house. My eyes burned as he opened the box, and I gulped in the fresh air, as Tyler, absent-minded as she is, forgot TO POKE AIR HOLES IN THE BOX!!! Thanks a lot, Tyler. Let’s hope my stay at Joey’s goes better.

 

I almost suffocated amidst all of the foam noodles... or whatever they're called...

I almost suffocated amidst all of the foam noodles... or whatever they're called...

Anyway, Joey was sidelined for a bit for some odd reason… I was turned over to his welcoming committee. All of a sudden, Tyler’s doesn’t sound so bad…

 

I was foolishly optimistic... I'll never make that mistake again...

I was foolishly optimistic... I'll never make that mistake again...

I was turned over to a wonderful gentleman named Dwight. Oh yes, his name was Dwight. He is almost as big of a celebrity as me, though. He has been featured on a show called ‘The Office’, which I can only assume is a riveting drama about the rigors of american office life. I’ll have to watch it sometime.

 

He was more charismatic than Tyler, Joey, Danielle, and Mark combined... gosh, I hope they never read this blog.

He was more charismatic than Tyler, Joey, Danielle, and Mark combined... gosh, I hope they never read this blog.

Anyway, Dwight gave me a tour of the house, which believe me, isn’t worth wasting my time writing about. He then showed me to my living quarters.

 

The bed made up for all the other shortcomings...

I don’t know… I may end up liking it here. Joey just informed me that we are going see ‘Mamma Mia’ tonight…. suddenly, I’m looking forward to Danielle’s….

Oh well.

Tyrone

So I spent a week with Tyler.  She’s pretty cool, I mean if you’re okay with nag-nag-nagging.  Anyways, she has a lot of cool stuff and I got to meet some pretty cool people in her rec room.
Oh no!!! I met Mr. Bill from Saturday Night Live!

and here I am with Gumby.  Don't tell anyone, but he is rather stuck up.  Quite conceited!

 I also met several LOST characters!

Me and Charlie. I really don't think he should have been killed off. :(

 

Me and Kate.  She wants me.  Be jealous.

 Tyler has a pool so she took me for a swim.  It was luxurious.

Basketball + Water = Flotation =)

I’m currently on my laptop in a carboard box somewhere in the US Postal System on my way to Joey’s!  (That was a mouthful)

Later Alligators!

I also stopped by Epcot when I was in Disney.

WARNING: Picture quality = utterly crap. Reason = crappity-crap-crap disposable camera. Sorry.

Okay, so I also hit Epcot when I was in the Disney area. It’s definitely one of my favorite parks :)

Here I am in front of Spaceship Earth with Tyler... ugh... why is she hugging me like that? Cooties!!!

Here I am in front of Spaceship Earth with Tyler... ugh... why is she hugging me like that? Cooties!!!

So, what’s always the best place to start when in Epcot…

TEST TRACK!

Unfortunately, Tyler and I ended up in the very back of the car and decided not to buy the picture. Instead, I made a driver’s license! Oh yeah! After that, we rode Soarin. It was quite the funny experience this time. There was this family… either Norwegian or French… I don’t know. And they were like terrified of putting their bags in the “underseat compartments”, so they strapped themselves in with the bags. Then the French/Norwegian lady (who was rather large) started complaining because the seatbelt was too tight (well ya think??). Then the ride attendant person came over and was like, “I’m sorry, you can’t hold your bags. Please put them under your seat”. Of course they were like… NOooooooooOOooo!!! So the attendant snatched the bags from them and smished them under their seats. However, Mrs. French/Norwegian Lady Thing’s seatbelt was still too tight. So the attendant unlocked all of the seatbelts so she could adjust hers. That’s when Tyler took her flip-flops off. The French/Norwegian man was like “Oh no! They will disappear!”, and she was like, “They’ll be fine”. So when we came back down, the man was like telling everyone in the row that Tyler’s shoes were still there. Um… wow?

Next, we headed to the Living Seas. This is one of Tyler’s favorite places… she apparently has a thing going on with one of the dolphins. But you didn’t hear from me ;-)

You can't really see me... but squint and try to see a little orange blob in Tyler's right hand.  Yeah, there I am!

You can't really see me... but squint and try to see a little orange blob in Tyler's right hand. Yeah, there I am!

“In the big blue world… I’m gonna go explore! In the big blue world! Things I’ve never seen before!” (Sorry Joey…and Mark)

Next, we headed to the World Showcase! Our first stop–France!

“]”]I am the queen of France!  [inside joke]Next, we checked out Morocco. Oh look! CAMELS!

…….

Haha… yeah… I don’t like camels anymore. *Wipes camel spit off face*

Anyways, Tyler and I headed to Japan next. There, we went into the super cool awesome Japanese store place and bought a pearl! YAY!

I'm kinda glad I let Tyler pick the oyster.  We ended up getting this really cool blue pearl, apparently the "rarest beauty of all".  Oooh... ahhh...

It was quite fun… the girl really liked her job. I mean REALLY.

I enjoyed the drums.  Tyler didn't.  Boo-hoo.

I enjoyed the drums. Tyler didn't. Boo-hoo.

We then skipped “The American Adventure” (which, by the way, bothers me. can we please just call it the USA Pavilion? I mean really!). Italy just looked cooler.

Here we are making a wish at the fountain thing.. umm... the....the Trevi Fountain (ah... the wonders of Google...)

The next country we traveled to was Germany.

The only place I could find to take a pic was in a large pile of German Mickeys.

Then, we went to the little bongo, congo, “let’s advertise coca-cola” pavilion.

Here I am immensed in ice and coke.  It was hot.

Here I am immensed in ice and coke. It was hot.

Then, there at the bridge from Coke-land to China… something insane happened.

This guy came over and was like, “I’m sorry, you can’t cross right now”. We thought it was a joke at first, but then he closed it off on both sides. All the people were confused and what-not… as was I. Then, the bridge started moving… it went up…. and up….. and up…

and up... and up.... and up... and... oh. it stopped!

and up... and up.... and up... and... oh. it stopped!Then we saw little, no, not little, ginormous barges with explosives pass under the now vertical bridge.

Oh-no...

Oh-no...

Then…
Epcot blew up. And I was the only survivor.
Just kidding.
They turned out to be the fireworks for Illuminations. Which, by the way, is an incredible show.
Anyways, we then went to…
China...

China...

and Norway...

and Norway...

and Mexico!  Like the sombrero??

and Mexico! Like the sombrero??

Then… we had to leave. Forever.
Well not forever, but we had to go home. As in… on a plane… to Tyler’s house.
It was sad. And my hand fell off in her carry-on bag.
But she found it.
Yay!
Tyrone
 Following my visit in Animal Kingdom, and that awesome luau, I headed to the Magic Kingdom.  I felt right at home, and seeing as anything can happen in the happiest place on earth, a living basketball wasn’t that weird.
I took this as I was walking down Mainstreet USA.  Whos that orange stud in front of the castle?

I took this as I was walking down Mainstreet USA. Who's that orange stud in front of the castle?

I decided I wasn’t ready for any big rides yet.  So, I headed to the Haunted Mansion.  Apparently, there are 999 grim grinning ghosts in the mansion… but if they need one more… I’m not it!  As always, the ride broke down in the worst possible spot–the opera singing ghost.  If I had ears, they would have been bleeding.
The icing on top of the cake--the ghost carriage thing.

The icing on top of the cake--the ghost carriage thing.

 After HM, I headed over to Space Mountain and got a fastpass.  Then, Tyler insisted we ride “it’s a small world after all” to kill time.  Not only did we kill time, but I almost killed her. 

"...where a smile means friendship to everyone..."  Oh great.  Now it's stuck in my head!!

"...where a smile means friendship to everyone..." Oh great. Now it's stuck in my head!!

 I then found myself very hungry.  So, I made Tyler take me to Comic Ray’s for lunch.  Mmm… delicious chicken tenders and awfully cheesy music…

 

"Yew Nork...blah blah...something about a caxi tab".  Yeah, and let's not forget those awsome puns.  Hehe. He...he.

 After stuffing my face listening to the musical stylings of Sonny Eclipse, I felt a little uneasy (and queasy) about riding Space Moutain right away.  So Tyler and I hopped on something we both enjoy.  Guess what it is?  I’ll give you a clue.  It has 3 different names.  The Blue Line Transit, the Tomorrowland Transit Authority, and the People Mover.  Yup! You either just guessed it, or realized that I told you the answer!

 

=D

"...Now approaching SPACE MOUNTAIN..."

 

This makes me giggle.  It's like engulfing her head.  HAHAHAHAHA!

This makes me giggle. It's like engulfing her head. HAHAHAHAHA!

 My food had finally settled by the time we got off the ride.  But Tyler looked at our fastpasses, and it was passed the alotted time! OH-NO!  However, nobody really cares about that these days.  If your pass expired at 11 AM, you could probably still ride at midnight.  Anyways, we headed to Space Mountain, where we saw Joey in the queue!

And then… the ride broke down.  Seriously, something big had happened.  Look–
 

The lights were on!! And the best part is, Joey's train left as soon as it broke down.  HAHAHA!

The lights were on!! And the best part is, Joey's train left as soon as it broke down. HAHAHA!

 So we waited… and waited…and waited…and took this picture… and waited… and then….

we waited.

Soon, the lights turned off, the crowd cheered, and the line started moving…slowly.  

Anyways, we finally got on and had a blast!  I sat in the front seat and had the unfortunate event of hearing Tyler scream the entire time.  She can be very loud!

I begged Tyler to ride it again, but she was all, "Nooo I wanna ride Buzz Lightyear...he's a hunk-sicle".  Gag me.

I begged Tyler to let us ride again, but she was all, "Nooo, I wanna ride Buzz Lightyear...he's a hunk-sicle". Gag me.

So we rode Buzz.  It ended up being quite fun.  I creamed Tyler.  She was only a wee Space Cadet.  I totally 1-UPed her.  Oh yeah.

AHH!!! IT'S THAT VILLAIN GUY WHOSE NAME CURRENTLY ESCAPES ME!!! AHH!

AHH!!! IT'S THAT VILLAIN GUY WHOSE NAME CURRENTLY ESCAPES ME!!! AHH!

After escaping the wrath of… um… oh come on I know this… oh! ZURG!  Okay, after escaping the wrath of Zurg, Tyler and I headed towards Pirates!  Arrggghhh!

Dead Men Tell No Tales...(tales...tales...tales...)

Dead Men Tell No Tales...(tales...tales...tales...)

 And then we rode Big Thunder… then we um…. dang it! I don’t remember.  Okay well yeah.  The End!

Did everybody enjoy my trip to Animal Kingdom??? I hope so. Well the other night I went to an awesome Polynesian luau. I know, Tyler, Joey, Mark, and Danielle had to be there, but, it still went well. Ok, here we go.

Upon arriving, they gave me a lei.

It was a little big.

It was a little big.

I was then whisked away by a tired Joey, a hungry Tyler, a sarcastic Mark, and an equally tired Danielle onto a table, where I was surrounded by chicken, rice, ribs, and pink lemonade. Yummy Polynesian delicacies.

(drool noise)......non-Polynesian food..........(drool noise)

(drooling noises)........non-Polynesian food...............(drooling noises)

I was soon caught up in the rhythm of the music.

I happen to be a fantastic hula dancer.

I was soon tired, and required immediate hydration.

Thank you non-Polynesian pink lemonade!

Thank you non-Polynesian pink lemonade!

Dinner was great. I had consumed 11 ribs before Tyler had even touched her first one. (Although, to be fair, that wasn’t until dinner was almost finished) Then came the high point of the evening. Desert.

Did I mention I like chocolate mousse??

Did I mention I like chocolate mousse??

I ended up eating everyone’s chocolate mousse volcanoes. I know, I know. I get a little excited. But they were so good! I was so full and exhausted after all of that sugar consumption that I fell asleep right there on the platter.

I'm a light sleeper.

I'm a light sleeper.

Thank you, everyone, (all 2 of you :D) for reading my luau post. I had a great time. Keep checking back for updates!!!
