Hey, everyone! I first want to say thank you to everyone who supported the Easter post I wrote a few days ago. Your support really means a lot.

Secondly, I wanted to inform you of two quick updates, since I don’t currently have the time to write a full report on either news stories.

The first piece of news concerns the guy who lives in a pineapple under the sea, Spongebob Squarepants. Remember to tune in to Nickelodeon on Friday, April 17, 2009 at 8pm Eastern Time to see an anticipated episode of the hit Nicktoon. The episode is a half-hour special called Spongebob vs. the Big One and will feature a special voice appearance of Johnny Depp!

The next bit of news concerns a Walt Disney World favorite, Space Mountain. The next few days are your last chance to ride the classic Disney roller coaster in the dark before it goes into extensive refurbishment on Sunday, April 19, 2009. It is currently scheduled to re-open on November 21, 2009. The Tomorrowland Transit Authority will also be closing on April 19, but will re-open a little earlier than Space Mountain, on August 24.

I just wanted to remind everyone of that news, so make sure you watch Spongebob Squarepants on April 17 at 8pm Eastern Time to hear Johnny Depp voice a character, and if you’re in the Orlando area try to ride Space Mountain before Sunday, because it’s your last chance to ride it until November!
