OMG I'm exhausted!

  • Less than 4 days left of work :( :( :(
  • Last closing shift was last night
  • Last shift with my buddy Justin :(
  • Went a bit shopping at Marketplace (for probably the last time *super sad face*) before work
  • I'm not a fan of the way Goofy's packages their caramel apples
  • If Disney wants to work on consistency they should try with that, just sayin
  • Got caught in a STORM. Tried to beat it to the break room and ended up having to take cover at Curl
  • Worked an 8hr shift with soaked socks, not fun
  • Didn't ROS for once cause Justin told me not to lol
  • Spent my whole second break talking to Nick (from Nick's Place), gonna miss him a ton
  • I'm nowhere near done packing yet, eep!!!
  • So excited for my vacay when I get back to the west coast
  • Not ready for this experience to end yet
  • My sickness is finally going away, it kinda feels like that right-before-Christmas cold. Mmm.
  • Mid shift today and opening tomorrow, the hell?
  • Did I mention I'm exhausted?
  • Had Micky D's with Amanda, husband and Justin last night. They had a bunch of new stuff on the menu. I feel so deprived.
  • I'm gonna kinda miss everything about Orlando...

So my program is coming to an end and I'm half relieved and half bummed out. I didn't get to do everything I wanted to do while I was here. I know it's a bit hard to believe since I was here for 7 months but trust me, you'll run out of time! I'm going to miss Disney World, I'm going to miss my friends, my leaders, my coordinators. Now I have to go back to my boring life back in California. I might come back, maybe do the alumni program. But I do need a break away from Disney! It's been fun Orlando, you've changed my life. For good <3.

Deployment, YOU SUCK.

Remember how last Friday I mentioned the bus was late? And how my leader was going to take care of it? 

Wellllllllllll.... I've been checking my report card all week and guess what. The half a point is still there! So I brought it up to my leader the other day after my friend who was with me that day said that she didn't have her half a point anymore and my leader said that she said she would call deployment and see what they could do. Apparently, deployment said the bus wasn't late and that they have some sort of leeway or some crap. Hello! The bus was half an hour late. What kind of bullshit is that?

It's a bit unfair when I'm at the bus stop 15 minutes before the bus is suppose to be there and the bus is late yet I have to deal with this bull crap! There's no use in calling deployment myself because they would still have to talk to my leader who would need to call deployment to get the half a point taken off. It's just madness. Seriously. If you look at my record card, I was only late once. Why would I lie about the bus being late if I'm never late? And especially when you KNOW the DTD bus has been late since everyone has been late at least twice in the last two weeks because of the bus!

It just really frustrates me.

Not only that but my husband called in sick yesterday because he doesn't feel good. And he's not the type of person to just call out of work. He'll go to work sick with a fever and chills. And so he checks his record card this morning and they have him down as a no call/no show. Uhm, what the fuck? He called in. The person on the phone verified all his information. Seriously, what the hell deployment?

Not to mention that the last time I ROS'ed, I had to wait like twenty minutes before a coordinater called to find out what was going. Turns out whoever they talked to at deployment forgot to put in my ROS. Seriously?

And this is why I'm not going seasonal. They don't pay me enough to deal with this crap.

Another Friday at DisneyQuest.

The Downtown Disney bus was late yesterday. By the time it was 20 minutes late, Amanda who was also waiting with me decided to just drive to work. Then we hit traffic and we were still late. I managed to dash to Quest and get up the stairs and end up only 7 minutes late. But the thing that sucks is that even if you're one minute late, you still get .5 points.

Thank goodness my leader took care of it. It's frustrating when you're waiting for the bus early and the bus itself is late, making you late for work and you have to get in trouble for something you tried to prevent. And lately the DTD bus has been late pretty much everyday for the last like, month and a half. 

The day was busy.

Now that the Casey Anthony trial is over Quest is back to its usual programming.... Harry Potter movies in the break room.

Oh that storm? Welcome to Thursday.

I'm all for a good sky-cracking-open Orlando thunderstorm but today's... I wasn't a fan of.

I decided to leave early for work and have lunch at Rainforest Cafe. When we left the apartment it looked like it was going to rain, by the time we got to the bus stop, it started sprinkling, half way to Downtown Disney it was pouring. Lightning, thunder, the whole thing! A lifeguard got on at Typhoon Lagoon with no shirt on because he had to use it to run through the rain. He had amazing abs, but it wasn't like I wanted to rawr those abs, I wanted to know how he got them. I'm convinced I'm a boy stuck in a girl's body sometimes...

Anyway, by the time we got to DTD, it was insane. Not only was it raining really hard and not only was there like a 3 second gap between lightning and not only was the thunder sky cracking loud... but the entire parking lot was flooded. I went to costuming to see if I could get new socks, but they don't carry socks. Crap. So we just walked through puddles to Nick's Place. The worst puddle was right in front of my leader's offices, it didn't look like a deep puddle but it was deep enough to reach my husband's calf! So we went around and he had to carry me through the other puddles. OMG, insane. By the time we got to Nick's; my socks, shoes, jacked and bag were all super soaked. To make it worse, my bag apparently doesn't repeal water so everything in my bag got soaked too. Including my work shirt and my apron. I'm surprised my phone and iPod didn't suffer from water damage.

Ended up just eating lunch at Nick's. Which wasn't too bad, Nick got to meet my husband lol! 

Went to work and just like I suspected, the A/C was on full blast. I was freeeezing my butt off. Kim was trying to assure me that it wasn't that cold. Until I told her I was anemic and I spent the first 3 hours of my shift doing dishes and staying as close to hot water as possible. But still, I couldn't feel my hands and my feet. I didn't get my break until 3 hours after and decided to just ROS since they wouldn't ER me. I was literally shivering. Kim was offering hugs to warm me up but at that point I was just really really cold. 

I love Florida and I love the thunderstorms, but I can not wait to go back to California weather. This storm and these hours are starting to burn me out.

Fourth of July!

I didn't really have anything special planned for 4th of July this year since originally it was my day off alone. So I was going to celebrate by doing laundry (hey, it's Monday, Monday is laundry day), eating a patriotic cupcake and having my favorite cocktail at my favorite resort.

But my husband managed to get the day off with me. So the day was still spent doing laundry. Then we headed over to the Polynesian resort where I had my heart set on Kona Cafe but he suggested his favorite place -- 'Ohana. Now, 'Ohana is kinda like Chef Mickey's, it's almost impossible to get a reservation there. But since he suggested and he never really says "hey, let's go here." I decided to go with it. So we stood in the stand by line waiting for cancellations for about two hours before I decided to visit the sushi bar and get something to snack on (and OMG I've found a new obsession, will post a picture when I go back next week. Seriously, this sushi is amazing. Do I really have to leave Walt Disney World in 4 weeks?) and while I was waiting for my order he comes back and says it's okay we don't really have to go and I got sad cause I know how much he LOVES 'Ohana and he goes "because I got a pager!" jerk.

I spent most of dinner eating salad, bread and noodles. And shrimp. I'm not too crazy about 'Ohana like he (and almost everyone else) is but I do love their coconut pineapple bread and the shrimp. As soon as we were seated and the shrimps came around he asked for an ENTIRE skewer. So every time our server passed by he would pick on my husband about taking his whole skewer lol!

I'm sure he probably ate our entire bill in shrimp!

Finally got to try their talked about bread pudding which was really really good! But of course, the star of the dessert was the Mickey sprinkles in the back! I'm such a sucker for Mickey sprinkles!

Right when our dinner was ending, the firework show at Magic Kingdom  was starting like everyone in 'Ohana stopped eating and everyone was staring out the window. I should had taken a picture, it was kinda creepy haha! We raced downstairs to the beach and watched the fireworks. I have pictures, but they're on my other camera and I don't feel like switching them right now. I'm not a fan of fireworks but OMG, best 4th of July firework show I've ever seen. It hit me, I'm watching the 4th of July firework show in Walt Disney World and in that moment, my life was complete. Seriously, it was such an amazing feeling.

After the fireworks and a bit of pin trading we took the guest bus to Downtown Disney.

Paid a visit to my home store that I miss sometimes. I use to be one of the people who stitches the names on the back of the Mickey ears hats.

Went to Art of Disney next door and fell in love with this Sleeping Beauty trio set. $700. One day!

Then we made our way over to Westside to see how my friends were doing. Did some pin trading at D-Street and headed over to bother the people in Candy Cauldron production. It was Emily's second to last day so I was hoping she would be there.

And she was! Megan was there too. Were these the only two people in kitchen production on the 4th of July?! They put on a show for us and I snapped a bunch of pictures. It was funny cause Megan went into the stock room and pulled out the cotton candy machine cover and put it over Emily's head lol! Weirdo!

I was trying to see who else was back there and Emily swung the door open and I tried to get Justin to come out into the kitchen but he's in his D-Street costume lol. See Candy Cauldron's itty bitty stock room? To the left is the merchandise and to the right is our 3 compartment sink where we wash dishes. Yeah, not much room for walking!

But aw, my favorites!

And of course, the cupcake I mentioned. It was delicious. And the frosting is buttercream!

Give it a try next time you're at a Disney park. It's under $3 and it counts as a snack on the snack plan :)

Hope everyone had an awesome and safe 4th of July!

Oh Disney Quest...

Worked at Quest last night. I went a few months without working there for awhile, now I'm there at least once a week. I normally don't like working at Quest because it's usually really, really, really slow and boring but I guess since it's summer people have been flocking in like crazy. It's nice to finally have something to do in there but... the kids tend to wreck the entire place. It's insane. The Goofy's powder station is usually COMPLETELY wrecked by the time the rush passes. Not only is there a bunch of plastic wrappers from the tubes but there's sugar everywhere and on occasion there's toys/hats/etc on the station covered in the sugar. Yeah, it's pretty frustrating!

Last night was insane. The whole night was busy. My legs feel swollen! I didn't have time to stock much or sweep up the Goofy's station from how busy it was. Goodness! 

I have a friend who works in... I don't know where but I've known him for about as long as I've been at West Side and I don't know his name! Which bugs me because he knows mine lol. But he's a cool guy, I'm gonna miss all these random people I know when I leave...

The thing the sucked the most yesterday was my husband broke my umbrella the other day playing with it and so when I got off the CP bus for work yesterday it decides to rain. Awesome, right? Ruined my plans of getting Earl of Sandwich, again. So I went to Wolfgang Puck on West Side (I regret it now, shoulda went to FoodQuest instead) and I swear, they have the slowest service in the world! Wolfgang in Marketplace is awesome. But West Side? It took them half an hour to get me my to-go order. And this is the second time I've come here and the second time it's happened. AND she got my order wrong. Never again!

On the upside, Rose Marie praised me for filling out my paperwork right (it's the same way I always do it, but either way praise is always nice) and had an interesting conversation with Roberto from Mexico about books, parties and alcohol lol!

Now it's 5:30am and I can't sleep. Husband has already left for his receiving shift and blah. I'm so tired. The blisters on my toes won't heal and as much as I'll miss this place, I can't wait to go home and relax for once.

5 weeks left...

I can't believe my program is already coming to an end, it feels like I literally just got here. I have a little less than five weeks left of work and as of today, five weeks left in Orlando. 

I was on the bus ride home from Port Orleans last night (only took me 6 months to finally visit that resort) and it hit me, how sad I'm going to be when I close the door to my apartment one last time. How sad I'm going to be on the flight back home and how sad I'm going to be when I'm sitting in my own room across the country from my friends and from Walt Disney World.

This program has literally changed my life. These people have changed my life. These experiences, memories and struggles, have changed my life. This has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I'm so happy that I did go through with it. 

I'm hoping to catch up on some blogging on Monday since I'm off and it's 4th of July. I'm debating on where to go since I'm trying to avoid the parks, I'm sure they will be packed beyond packed so I'm not even going to bother! I'll probably get a cupcake and dine at the Polynesian resort!

I seriously can not imagine my life without Magic Kingdom, Candy Cauldron, pin trading and buying choco covered marshmallows whenever I want :(

Saturday, June 18, 2011


I'm hardcore craving a choco dipped strawberry and a toffee slab. Mmm! But I'm too lazy to go out and get one.

I know I've been suuuper slacking on posts and I know I always say that but legit, there isn't much to say around here but even when there is, I'm usually too tired to update.

Worked 9a-3p at Candy Cauldron the last two days. As much as I suck at waking up early, it's always nice to come home while the sun is still up.

Yesterday it was just me, Matt, Honeyvie and Elizabeth opening. But it was a lot more eventful than today, we got Selma's in yesterday, yay! But today we ran out of white choco chip cookies. Whuuut. I know, right? Robby also spent all yesterday morning making Mickey out of our twist ties LOL! Honeyvie was waving it around like "it's a cat! it's a cat!" LOL! Also I save a ton of money by being at work early because I can't eat that early so I never finish my Chicken Parm sandwich from Nick's. Saving money right there!

After work went home and found a gift from husband on my night stand, a Cheshire Cat toy. One I wanted when we first got here. Aww, thanks love!

I wanted to treat him to Ohana but he called and they said they were all booked up and he didn't want to wait for an opening so we didn't go there. We decided to go to Animal Kingdom Lodge since we haven't been there yet and so we're waiting for the bus and this wicked STORM hits. Like, strong winds, rain, thunder, lightning, the whole thing just at the same time. It was insane, sounded like the sky was cracking open but it was relaxing and awesome. I loved every minute of it! 

So we get toe Animal Kingdom Lodge and didn't know there were two sides but OMG that place is beautiful! It's dim and relaxing and there's animals out back that you could watch. Amazing. We ended up eating dinner at Boma (now can cross that off the list) and man... should just waited on Ohana. We weren't impressed, that's all.

Today it's pretty hot and sunny out. Work was slow, boring, nothing interesting happened. The new caramel... I'm not a fan of. It puddles, not cool. I slightly regret not going to Earl's and Goofy's but man... the Maketplace is so far from West Side when it's like 90 degree's outside. And I didn't want to wait on another bus if I missed one. So I just went home. Husband was late for his bus so I spent a little bit of time with him at the bus stop. Poor thing. 

Going to attempt to make pineapple fried rice some time today. Was hoping to go to Wal Mart, but the bus stops running at 630 (yeah it's one of those days). Hate that. I also hate how it's like a million degrees outside but it's always freezing in my apartment! Can I get some room temp in here?! I'm having a war with myself about if I should go out today since I'm home early or just stay home and relax. Even though I know I should stay home and relax considering that I have two 9hr shifts ahead of me before my next day off *sigh* well at least I'll get to see that money! Unlike this week. Darn missing rent.

My cousins from the Philippines are at my parents house and I'm looking at their pictures and it's making me miss home so much. I have about 7 weeks left here in Orlando and that's insane to think about too. I miss home but I know I'm going to miss Orlando and Disney World so very much when I leave. I'm coming back, of course, but it's going to be so weird to be so far away from it all and from my friends. I should probably start packing and stuff now though lol. I know those 7 weeks will go by fast!

Also, inspections #4 (are we on #4?) is coming up next week. Ughhh. Inspections!

Spring 2011 graduation.

We graduated!! 
Graduation was over the span of 3 days last week. Or was it the week before? I don't remember. But since we had extended, I wasn't expecting a diploma! I went to check if I had one when my boo thang Patrick went to pick his up. Originally I wasn't planning on going but since I had one, I had to go!

It's just weird. When I arrived here, it was a week or so before the last program's graduation and I remember being annoyed cause at the time I worked at World of Memories and all these people came in wanting their graduation ears (the one's I'm wearing) stitched and now it's my graduation? Where the heck did time go? I always thought the people who didn't update their blogs once they got to Orlando just didn't care enough to. But I was wrong, you literally don't have time to do much once you're here. I mean people make time to like party and club and stuff (but you're moving). But when you're sitting about to write a blog, you'll fall asleep. No joke. I don't know how many times I've sat here with my blog open and just fell asleep. The only time I legit have time to clean my apartment is when I'm skipping out on a few hours of sleep before inspections. It's crazy out here!

Last week Betsy, Yarissa, Daria and Priscilla left West Side. And today is Alexis, John and Kendra's last day. It's so weird not having these people around anymore. Like I'm at Quest this weekend and with everyone gone... who the heck am I closing with?! Then next week all my friends from Thailand will be leaving and the week after my Kiersten will be leaving :(. Time has definitely traveled way to fast. I feel like we all just got here!

Husband has switched over to Merchandise, he actually had his Merchantainment class this morning so that's pretty exciting. I'm a little jealous though cause he's in a location that has confectionery and for them, after 30 days they're kitchen trained. Yeah, doesn't work that way on West Side. I've been there for 2 months and I'm not kitchen trained. But I've been having a great debate with myself the last few weeks over if I should ask to be or not. I love being on the floor but it would be cool to be kitchen trained too... ah, I dunno!

I think I have new neighbors. Cause the people downstairs are either screaming and yelling or spending all night slamming doors. Ugh.

I totally fail.

Oh mannn I totally fail at updating this blog (and every other blog I have. I fail at Tweeting, come on now, like that takes time)! It's been crazy busy here because of Grad Night weeks and the heat is moving on in. It's been SO hot and humid here lately that some days I just can't stand it! And everyone keeps saying it gets worse in August! Could it REALLY get worse than THIS? 

I have so much to update on!! My birthday, things that are going on and the formal that was last night! I don't want to cover those things because I want to make a separate post so I'll just update on the things that are going on.

The Spring semester is ending in about a week and a half and that's just so hard to believe. It feels like we just got here and I say that because if I had not extended, I would be going home in ELEVEN DAYS. That just blows my mind! It's already May?! But just because I'm not leaving doesn't make it less sad. ALL of my friends on West Side are leaving. I think there's about 3 or 4 of us that are staying. A few people have "end of program" over their work times on the schedule and it's just a damn reminder that they're leaving soon :( I'm seriously sad! I love the people I work with, I love the new friends I've made and it's hard to imagine West Side without them. Kinda makes me wish I had extended into a different area or into something else. Even though I love West Side.

Husband extended into Merch so that's exciting. It's his last week or so at Buzz so I took a bunch of pictures of him today there and a few with some of his friends. He's going over to Hollywood Studios, pretty exciting, at least I think so. I wonder where they'll deploy him to!

Someone stole 17 Muppet Vinylmations from D-Street the other day. From what I heard they left the boxes in the case but took the Vinylmations. How the hell they got away with that is beyond me. And why would you leave the boxes?! I think putting new releases by the door are a bad idea. I mean I get the purpose, but I don't think there should be that many boxes up there.

I still think Pin Cart should had followed Mickey's Groove and went away.

I've been hanging out with Kiersten a lot lately and going to Micky D's with Betsy a lot too. I'm going to miss West Side Micky D's trips.

I washed my clothes and forgot I had a BBQ sauce in my pocket (I checked ALL of my pockets except my hoodie, wth was I thinking) and I got BBQ sauce ALL OVER my clothes and towels. I was suppose to re-wash everything today but I had no money for laundry. Why can't it just take debit like everything else. Ugh. I'm so upset right now. 

Did I mention a girl my husband works with asked him to the formal? She knows he's married, she's hung out with me a handful of times and always acts like she's happy to see me with her hugs and crap but... asks my husband to the formal. Oh and then, the next day, she invited him to hang out with her at the pool. Uh, what?

What else?

Lately I've been breaking out like crazy. But you didn't need to know that. 

I'm going to go resize pictures and make a post about the formal now lol.

Happy First Birthday D-Street Orlando!

[ yes, this is our dresser ]

Today's D-Street Orlando's first birthday! Yay!

Zone 4 celebrated yesterday. They had Vinylmation artists come in and sign some stuff, I saw a few Nightmare Before Christmas boxes signed when I got to work (no more Jack's though! Boo)! We had a huge sign in sheet for guests on the floor and one for cast members in the stock room. We had cake and every cast member got a gift. Not saying what it is :). We also got to rock the birthday pin (which is kind of a big deal on West Side since it's not "Disney Look")! Except people kept telling us happy birthday without reading that it's for D-Street! We wore it to invite guests to celebrate with us!

I'll update on my birthday soon. Hopefully on Monday when I'm off! I also have to go to Magic Kingdom's costuming to pick up a costume for Fantasyland! I wasn't deployed like everyone else, I traded shifts with Betsy. Just want to see what it's like to work at a park for one day!

P: If he comes to switch places with you. I'm punching him in the throat. Swear to God. Hawwww!
*I get handed a break slip*
P: Hazel, come here. No, I just wanna say something! Hawwww!

Today's my 26th Birthday!

We started celebrating yesterday by having lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom's Liberty Square (not really worth it) and venturing around the park! Then ending the day at Downtown Disney for some sweet treats. Today we're going to Hollywood Studios (thank goodness it's NOT raining like it said it would be) then husband is taking me to Ohana's for dinner and we're going back to Hollywood Studios to see Fantasmic! Tomorrow will be spent at Epcot!

Pictures soon :)

Extension approved!

About a week or two ago emails went out for anyone who wanted to extend their program who were leaving in May. Both my husband and I applied to extend and they were both approved! I decided to stay in my current role/location while husband decided to transfer from Attractions to Merchandise and he got approved. Yay!!! So instead of leaving in May, we're now leaving in August! 

I was trained in Candy Cauldron a few days ago. It's not rocket science but it is going to take some getting use to to know everything that's going on. Remembering all the fudges and what goes in them mostly. I thought I'd hate it there -- all of my co-workers talk about how much they hate it but it's actually kind of fun. I love how fast paced it is, I just hate how small the work area is. Since I'm staying until August, I'm going to ask if I can be kitchen trained so I can make caramel apples! 

Okay, kind of silly but...ever since I was a kid, the candy store in Main Street at Disneyland has always been my favorite store in the entire park (well besides maybe Pooh's Corner, but only because they have caramel apples there too) and I always thought it would be awesome to work at a Disney candy store. And to actually work in one now? It's just amazing. Seriously, amazing.

The downside to this week though.... is that in January when I got here I requested days off for my birthday. Which were approved. But since I switched job locations, they took them back because I didn't re-submit them since they "don't travel with me". Keep in mind, NO ONE told me this. So when I checked my schedule for next week and saw that I don't have my birthday requested days off, that kinda irritated me. I'm going to try to talk to my scheduling manager tonight and see if they can fix it. That's totally not fair. I'm glad I didn't attempt to go home, I woulda been pissed. I really don't want to call out that day so I hope this is all fixed before next week.

Inspections #2 and 6 days.

It's storming today. Thunder came out of nowhere at like 2am this morning. Ruined my plans of going to Magic Kingdom for some Tavern and Celebration Fudge. Apparently it's going to be storming all week. Which is weird considering how HOT and HUMID it was YESTERDAY. I don't think I'll ever get use to Florida weather.

We have our second inspections coming up and the apartment is a complete and utter MESS. I tried getting all the bigger organizing done last week but that kinda failed so yeah. At least the laundry's done. Well, half of it anyway. Gahh. I only have today and tomorrow to clean this damn place up. I guess it's a sign. Rain = I don't get out and have nothing else to do but clean the damn place up for inspections. Awesome. Flippin awesome.

I'm working six days this week. Which isn't that bad, I guess. I kinda need the money. I'm just curious to know how grumpy I'll be at the end of the week. All closing shifts too. It's kinda funny cause I hate closing but as soon as I get home after closing I'm wishing I was still at work. I hate being home. Kind of. 

Husband pulled me out of bed yesterday morning to catch the first bus to Wal Mart to get a 3DS. Ughh. But I got my Nook Color, so I'm happy. Early bday gift for myself. Nothing else I really want besides a case of Villains Vinylmations.

Speaking of, if the rain stops at any point today I'll probably make a quick trip to Downtown Disney and trade a keychain. Hopefully they still have either the Friday the 13th one or the skull one. Or I'll just buy 'em. Whatever.

Work has been good, busy. Not really much else to really say. Mickey's Groove is closing this week, Park #6 Vinylmations is released this Friday and I'm being trained for Candy Cauldron next week. That's pretty much all.

Now on to cleaning this place up!

Friday, March 18, 2011

Our internet is down.

This is probably the longest week, ever

I had a 13hr shift for the first time on Wednesday at Mickey's Groove. Which pretty much means I had a 13hr shift at pin cart. And it was true. At least Alexis, Yarissa and Kelli were there! Even though Kelli was out to destroy me with that damn light saber. I swear she was! Had 6hrs at Quest yesterday with Pedro (who has wayyyy too much energy) and... damn I keep forgetting her name. It got super busy at one point and this lady wants two mugs shipped to her resort, I forgot to key in to ship to the resort so I had to return everything and do it over. But! I can't do my own returns so I had to wait for someone to do it and she got really impatient because she was going to miss her show (Cirque) and she cut in and asked Pedro to help her. Lady, you see it's busy. Why do people do things super last minute and expect miracles? I was super tired all day. Good thing I got two sandwiches at Earl's, I didn't have to make dinner when I got home and I went to sleep.

My allergies are kicking my ass. I've been waking up with a stuffed up nose and teary eyes. My left eye is swollen. I can't take Claritin until 1. Erg.

Our internet has been out for two days now. We called front desk yesterday and they said some apartments are under "routine maintenance". For two days?! Blah!

I need to find some time to go to Wal Mart before Monday. My work times are so off. Wouldn't be a big deal if I had a car. It just sucks that if you work at 4pm, you have to catch the bus at like 245pm. The bus times are off sometimes too. You're either an hour early, 12 minutes early or 2 minutes late (and you have to factor in the time it takes you to put your stuff away and GET to work. Plus the break room on West Side to to the actual store you're in is like a 3 minute walk).

I didn't mean for this entry to seem like an ever ending rant. I just feel like crap right now. Damn allergies. I'll have happier entries as soon as I get time to edit the pictures are write them.

Sunday, March 6, 2011

I know every mile, will be worth my while.

Let's pretend it's not March 6th and it's still March 5th, yeah?

I woke up 2 hours early for my bus, I had a dream my bus left at a different time and stuck with it. Good thing I checked before I actually left or I woulda been really sad. Yay for not enough sleep. Had an odd early shift today. And got out at 5:30. Uhm, okay. I should be tired right now, but I only have a slight headache that I hope will go away, soon. 

Yesterday was my last day at West Side and how fitting that it was at Quest. Since my first week of deployment was at Quest. The only down side to that was that it was insanely slow. I mean, there was a point where I was completely alone in the store for like fifteen minutes. Completely alone. Just me. Alone. During business hours. It was kinda scary (thanks for leaving me Cyril)! Speaking of, I made a friend the other day who's from France. How cool is that? California isn't half as cool as France, just sayin.

Even though the day was slow, it went by pretty fast too. So yeah. My deployment at West Side is over. Which means... I go back to Memories today. I got a brand spanking new apron after work. It's so crisp. 

Headed over to Marketplace to buy Vinylmations. I know, I know. BUT. I did get the chaser for Cutesters Too! Now to get the super chaser. My mystery keychain was the Cheshire Cat one, whoo! Let's hope they don't release a Cheshire Cat Vinylmation. Oh I also asked Matt if someone with zero experience in Memories could take my shift. His response? "We get people all the time who don't know what's going on". Awesome. I'm going to D-Street on Wednesday! I'm so excited! Anyone willing to give up Zone 4 shifts, let me know! Latara need not apply lol. Oh I also got a shirt I've been wanting :)

I'm sad I'm leaving West Side. I know I hated it when I first got there but now I absolutely love it. I mean, it still has its faults but it was a pretty amazing experience to work three completely different stores. Now I have to go back into Marketplace mode and I have no idea what that is anymore. But at least I can get back to eating Creme Brulee's before work again. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. But I do know I'll miss the friends I made at West Side, very much. Now work won't be half as fun as it has been for the last few weeks.

Wicked in one day. Not as excited as I thought I would be...

Saturday, February 19, 2011


I was pretty excited to be able to work D-Street yesterday. Like I've mentioned, I'm a huge fan of Vinylmation's. And for the most part, I was having a rather fantastic day. The girls I worked with (and guys) were really nice and welcoming and helpful. I had fun sharing the surprise with guests when they opened their mystery boxes and trading with them and figuring out the science behind Vinylmation. I also got to talk to a guy who designed a few Vinylmation's himself that we have in our glass case.


When it came to closing, that's when the day started to go bad. It might not be a big deal but the vending machine took my $5 so I didn't have dinner. I had two bags of chips and half an Almond Joy (and when husband and I went back after my shift to get my stuff from the locker -- which is ghetto and so is the bathroom -- my $5 wasn't stuck in the machine anymore, someone took it!). 

The closing manager wasn't very friendly. She's a bit demanding and she talks indirectly to you which I find rude especially when she's ordering you to do something. If you're going to order me to do something, at least look at me when you're talking to me. If there's four of us in the room, how do we know WHO you're talking to? So I go straighten up the store and I go into the back room and manager goes "You. Take out the trash." I've never worked in this location before, I don't know how things go. She got mad at me for opening a roll of nickles 15 minutes before closing (I only had 5 nickles left) but at my main location, we're require to open all the rolls of coins so I thought it was okay. It would be nice if the managers let us know how things work in THEIR store instead of ASSUMING we know. Cause we don't!

So I gather the trash and I tell her I don't know where it goes. She does her indirect talking again and tells me that it goes over by Disney Quest. Okay? So... do I just leave it next to the Disney Quest building?? So she tries telling me where to go and which doors to go through and which turns to make... uhm? If you see behind Disney Quest, it's like a maze back there. It's 12:30AM, do you think I really care about the directions you're giving me? Especially after the way you're talking to me? No. I don't.

So she tells me to wait for someone from the zone to show me. So I'm waiting at the door. Like she told me to.

Next thing I hear is yelling and boxes being thrown around. My co-worker who was standing by that door was telling the manager that I've never been to this location and even she didn't know that the boxes had to go out. And so she motions for me to get over there and the managers like, messing up all the boxes and telling me it has to go out. You know, you could have just kindly told me that the boxes need to go out too.

It's just insane. There aren't any managers in this zone that you really want to be in the room with. They're all really grumpy and irritated all the time. And that's pretty sad. I can't wait to go back to my main location. I'm going to give every manager and coordinator a big huge hug and tell them to never leave me.

Husband and I decided we won't be extending. While I think the college program is an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity, some things just aren't really worth dealing with more than once. 

I'm not looking forward to the rest of this weekend since it's suppose to be busy cause of some holiday. Then there's inspections (gosh this week sucks) and I just got done scrubbing down the stove and the counters in the kitchen. I moped the bathroom and front door area yesterday, husband moped the kitchen a few hours ago. I need to tidy up the living room and our room, vacuum and get the trash and laundry ready for tomorrow so things will go smoothly. I also need to get ready for work soon. Fantastic. Just fantastic. 

I'm gonna buy myself a Vinylmation or two. And plan a spa weekend. I deserve it.

I'm also going to be starting "Eating Around The World" at Epcot! I don't know if I'll make a different blog for that or keep it here.

The time I have been dreading has come... Inspections.

Our building is set to have inspections in a few days. We're not ready. It's a little hard to clean up the place when we both have different work times and one of us (not pointing any fingers) doesn't pick up after themselves. Another thing that sucks is that when we got here, the apartment wasn't clean in the first place! So it sucks to have to be expected to have this place spotless when they didn't bother to do the same for us before our arrival. Seriously, if I had to rate this apartment 1-5, it would be a 2. If this was a hotel, I wouldn't even think about staying here again. I'm tired of calling maintenance, they always leave a mess behind. I'm tired of everything breaking. I'm tired of how filthy this place is. It makes me want to scrub down the walls. And it's just so cramped in here. I don't get how two people are expected to live in this apartment. This isn't even an apartment, it's a room

I shoulda just asked for Patterson. But that's a long walk to the bus stop.

On to happier things... the housing event for Wicked has been posted and YES I reserved my spot. I'm also going with my friend Kyle to see it again :). You know me, I can't see Wicked just once!

A friend of mine came to visit me at work last night. She's married too and her hubby is also in the program so they hung around and we talked for awhile. Kinda surprised me how easy it was to talk to her. I'm not a very social person!

I'm scheduled for D-Street today, which I'm excited for. I LOVE their costume and I'm obsessed with Vinylmation! D-Street is pretty much a store dedicated to Vinylmation. So while I'm excited, I think it's a horrible idea, I may want to buy the whole store!

Our 40% off is over, boo! So I haven't been buying anything. Not really worth it without the 40% off!

I'll be catching up on entries on Monday night or Tuesday. Let's hope the inspections go over smoothly.

I thought my schedule for this week was a little odd.

So I go clock in to work like I normally do and... it's telling me that I can't clock in that location and to try the following locations. All the listed locations were in Disney Quest. So I was a little confused considering I had never been to Disney Quest. I ask one of my leaders what was going on and he told me I had been deployed. Uhm, what the hell does that mean?

I ended up having to go to costuming to get a new costume and I had to somehow make it from costuming to Disney Quest. Of all places, why West Side? That's like, at the very tip end of everything. My shins hurt from trying to get to work on time. Only to be an hour late. Luckily I was cut some slack but man. Ow, my shins. Most stressful afternoon of my life. I seriously wanted to break down and cry multiple times while trying to figure out how to get to Disney Quest.

CP's, check your locations not just your times!

I was wondering why I wasn't showing up on the schedule sheet to Memories this week! It looks like I'll be spending the next few weeks all around West Side. Which worries me a little, it's super far from cast services. I really don't like the looks of this. It's funny cause I was just telling my husband how I wish we rotated locations (since my zone doesn't rotate me) and now that I'm magically placed in a zone that does... I miss my store! I miss my zone! I miss my friends! I miss my cool and friend coordinators. *sad face*. I'm excited to  be working at D-Street, but not so much the other locations.


Oh, Happy Valentines Day all!

It looks like all the married people are working today and all the single people are off. Odd right?

Seriously? This place is falling apart!

So when we moved in, our shower was broken and the shower drain was clogged. We got that fixed. Then our hot water blew out. We got that fixed. And now the chain to our toilet flusher snaps. Seriously? Maintenance should probably just camp out our front door! Seriously, this is insane. I'm tired of calling Maintenance. Most of the time they trash the room they're in trying to fix. It's seriously irritating. I don't feel like coming home to a trashed bathroom tonight. Debating over calling them so they can fix the toilet while I'm at work today or calling tomorrow when I can watch them. 

Ugh, we're not even home enough to have things just break out of nowhere!

Feeling a little better...

I woke up this morning well rested, thank goodness.

Husband made me make lunch by myself, saying I needed to learn how. You pop stuff in the oven, how hard is that? Besides that I get lazy? He was a little off today, almost put on his jeans instead of his work pants. I'm glad I didn't get Attractions lol.

Maintenance came and fixed our water heater yesterday. The hot water went out the other night in the middle of my shower. That's where the burning plastic smell came from too, not a totally good sign. At least by the time we got home the hot water was running again. But maintenance left a huge mess behind. Which sucks. I didn't have much to eat yesterday, which is why I was bummed about ruining dinner. I did try Wolfgang Puck though. I only had their mashed potatoes and their chicken noodle soup.

Had a Rocky Road shake from Ghiradelli too ($3 whoo! Cast Member discount)! Probably not the best thing to drink with this meal, but whatever! The chicken noodle soup wasn't that great. I prefer Earl of Sandwich (but they don't have it available that often). The mashed potatoes.... whoooo! They were delicious. Creamy and everything. Not all that great when cold, but really good hot.

I'm going to ask if I can get off early today since I have another 6AM shift. And we all know how well that went last week. At least I get off early after. I'm going to have to make stop at Wal Mart and I'm planning on spending the rest of the day at Magic Kingdom. The only thing is... I kinda find it a hassle to get to Magic Kingdom and it's the weekend, so hopefully it's not too packed. I'm only planning on taking a walk around since I haven't really been there (during the day) yet annnnd maybe stopping by Sleepy Hallow to treat myself to a funnel cake :). I'm thinking of taking a bunch of pictures too and stalkingmyhusband. What? Who said that?

I'm thinking of things to send home. I think the autograph/picture book idea is awesome. But I don't know how long it would take to fill up two of those things or how hard. But it could be fun :). Wish we had more time off or earlier shifts so we still had time to do things after work. Oh! I guess doing a meet and greet would be easier in trying to get one of those done, wouldn't it? Hm. There's still lots of places I want to go to and lots of things I want to see, but never enough time. Pooh.

Time to load up the dish washer (again), vacuum and get ready for work!


I haven't been home sick since I got here, but I feel like I'm on home sick overload tonight.

I wish it was 12:12AM right now instead of 3:12AM. I'm kicking myself because I'm still awake and I know I'll be tired at work tomorrow just like I was yesterday for sleeping late the night before. I burned the last Chicken Noodle Soup and we're almost out of rice because I fell asleep while I was cooking. It shouldn't be a big deal, at least I didn't set off the smoke detector or anything but I don't know. I'm just so tired and achy and we don't have time to get more soup until next week. I hope we get my parent's package today.

The apartment smells like burning and I'm so sad.

I miss the feeling of the carpet in my room between my toes. I miss the fluffyness of my own bed. I miss my furbabies so much. I miss my car. I miss being able to go to Target whenever I wanted (I don't even know where Target is here and yes it's causing a bit of an anxiety problem). I miss SunValley Mall. I miss going to UoP every Monday night. I miss routine. I miss my parents. 

I love it here, but tonight I just really really miss home.

Living on my own is so hard. I'm doing a lot better than I thought I would, makes me realize how spoiled I was at home. Everything so much harder without a car and by yourself.

Husband had a bowl or Ramen waiting for me on the bed when I got out of the shower. But I'm too sad to eat. At least our hot water is back on. 

I have another 6AM shift this weekend and I'm really not looking forward to it. It takes me an hour to get home from work and I have to get up 3 hours before my shift to make it there on time because the bus doesn't run that early so I have to take a shuttle. Last weekend I only got 2 hours of sleep. This isn't fair. I'm not like everyone else with a damn car. Do they put that into consideration?

I need to sleep. Somehow.

Not cool Florida, not cool!

I finally found a Chase bank in Orlando and I finally made it to the Florida Mall! Horray! 

We took the A to TCC then took the Lynx bus to the mall. I was told that the bank was across the street, but that's not really the case (though there is a Lollicup across the street, didn't expect to see that outside of CA). It's across the street but down the street to the next shopping plaza. Which can I just say, is awesome? They have a Panda Express, Chipotle, Cold Stone, Ulta, Petco, TGIFriday's, Publix, and a bunch of other stuff. I went lightweight shopping at Ulta and had Panda Express for lunch. Ohhh sweet junk food!

Went back to the mall and did some shopping; got my chocolate strawberry gems from Godiva, a few stuff from Bath & Body Works... mostly an air freshener for the living room, shoes and a perfume from Payless. I didn't get anything from LUSH (I moved out and I still can't take bubble baths, lame) or MAC (smallest MAC store I've ever seen) and I couldn't find anything I really wanted at Sephora, besides my Pink Sugar perfume but I decided to get that later.

The mall is pretty small, it's one floor and it kind of reminds of Great Mall, where you just walk in a huge circle. They have a KFC express which means no mashed potatoes, honey BBQ wings or pot pies... wth? I was so close. Argh. Is there a KFC in Orlando?! I'm missing my fast food! Oh I also got new jeans because I don't fit a size 1 anymore. No, I'm not kidding, seriously, I've never been anything over a size 0 and now that I'm 25 I'm hitting a size 2. It's insane and I'm pretty excited about it! Being a size 0 sucks.

We were leaving the mall and it started raining so as we're walking across the parking lot, it starts POURING. Out here when it rains it pours! We were soaked half way to the bus stop and it was just across the parking lot! OMG. It was storming like I've never seen before! Then the thunder and lightning hit. If you told me three months ago that I'd be standing at a bus stop in the middle of a freakin thunderstorm, I'd tell you that you were trippin. But there I was. Waiting for a bus in a thunderstorm. Not very princess like is it? Growing up sucks. At least the bus seat was heated.

We got off at TCC again and took the A there instead of at Disney Uni, in case it was crowded. So that saved a ton of irritation. We got off at home and as we were walking to the apartment there was a bright as flash of lightning and I was like "OMGOMGMOGOMG" and loud thunder. I actually screamed haha. But I have to admit, being outside and witnessing that was pretty awesome. Thunderstorm > Wishes. Haha! But really, it was cool.

It wasn't so cool when we got inside and realized we were soaked, our shoes were soaked, our bags were soaked and ugh.

And of course, it would be bright and sunny and happy today! Sad part is, this type of weather is normal here. Back home it would be bi-polar.

Going to Panera Bread with husband before work. Yipee! I miss Panera Bread! I live like 3 blocks away from it and I never have time to go (how depressing).

Monday, January 24, 2011


Oh my gosh! I have been sick all week and feeling like complete and utter crap. I'm the type of person to call in sick if I'm feeling sick. But now that I'm paying for my apartment and I'm at Disney, you better believe I dragged my coughing sniffling ass to work everyday.... even on my 6AM shift! Which let me tell you, was not fun. Especially since I got off at 10PM the previous night and it takes me an hour to get home. I took some NyQuil in hopes of sleeping peacefully, which I did. For two hours. Then I had to get ready for work. May I just suggest that NyQuil and two hours of sleep is not the best idea? Seriously, you'll regret it.

I treated myself to a Tinkerbell coloring book that day and a set of Kooky pens! I LOVE Kooky pens, they're so cute! I got the wedding set. I took a picture of it, but I'm too lazy to transfer, resize, blah blah blah. Yesterday was my Friday and husband and I had dinner at T-Rex. That place is AWESOME! The food was okay. I liked the sampler platter but my pasta wasn't that great. I'd go back for the ribs though, OMG they're heaven. Husband picked me up from work too, I got him to make a Cheshire long sleeve from make-a-tee. Hehe! He made the font color blue though. He didn't know you could change the colors. Weirdo. I like it! He wrote what he wanted on it. So the top says "Cheshiire" (which is my FFXI characters name), then a pic of Cheshire Cat, then the bottom says "We're all mad here". It's cute!

Went grocery shopping today. Met husband's friend who was staring at me the whole time. *cough*. Don'tgetyourhoodstomppedout. Just sayin. I use to love grocery shopping, now I kinda... don't. It sucks when you buy $50 worth of groceries then run out again in a week. What the hell! We had no juice at all yesterday which doesn't help when two people are sick!! Did the laundry today, had to wash my work clothes. Did the dishes. Husband's getting a little bit irritated cause I'm slacking on my half of the duties. I've been so tired lately :(. He's making me relax right now (even though he's at work) until I have to make dinner before he gets off work. At least my cough is almost gone.

I decided to write a list of things I'm loving per week. If I remember to do this. I think it'll be fun!

  • 40% off Cast Member discount
  • The fact that my apartment has AC and a heater!
  • Figuring out where the leak in our bath tub is coming from (gotcha sucker!)
  • Bench seats on the bus
  • Earl of Sandwich BBQ chips & vanilla frosted cupcake
  • My co-workers. Even though they're way older than me, they're all so awesome
  • Thunder & lightning! (I have a love/hate with this, but I do love lightning)
  • Warm Spring-is-almost-here afternoons
  • Meeting the person who dresses up as Mickey Mouse (srsly, it was awesome)
  • Fast shift days
  • Back To December by Taylor Swift
  • Alaadin: You're my only friend Apu! Girls: Who?
  • Watching Disney movies / The Disney Channel in the break room <3
  • When the bus doesn't stop at Vista lol
  • My job!
 I'm off to relax a bit and maybe get some reading done. I've been slacking in the reading department. I haven't finished not one book in all of January :(

Disney's Hollywood Studios & Shopping!

What the hell, my neighbors are nailing things to their wall? At least, it sounds like it. I thought we couldn't uhm, do that....

Days are so busy and eventful here in Florida!
I had my tier 1-3 training the last few days. Fun stuff. Learning the basics, meeting everyone (coolest managers, EVER), getting to know my store, and playing with a cash counter machine during close. Oh how I miss those! I wonder what Cash Control is like at Disney World, it seems much more organized than Cash Control at Six Flags. So yeah, that was fun. I'm slowing getting the hang of counting change backwards (the Disney way) to customers and I need to work on not being scared to approach kids. I'm not good with kids, I know, but I'm serious. So far customers have been very understanding about the fact that I'm training, which is really sweet.

Yesterday we had a huuuuge thunderstorm in the early morning. Seriously, it sounded like the sky was splitting open. Never heard anything like it. Good thing it didn't rain the rest of the day, husband and I went out to Disney's Hollywood Studios!

We walked around, since I've never been there and OMG, Toy Story Mania? Their wait time was 110 minutes for standby. That is INSANE! Didn't get to see too much, we went to catch the Beauty and the Beast musical. Which was okay, it was the way sped up version.

I wish I had brought my better camera! I was in such a hurry to get out the door I wasn't thinking!
We tried to find our way to the Swan Resort, but being that it was night time, it was hard to figure out where we were going. So I Googled it and I guess walking from The Boardwalk would had been easier. Welp, so much for that thought! So we went to Downtown Disney so I could go shopping!

We had dinner at Rainforest Cafe because there was no wait! Whooohoo! I got one of those frog cups for kids, my husband thought it was silly but I think it's cute! We had our usual, the sampler which is delicious! And I had clam chowder, which was also good. It was kinda funny cause we got our cast members discount but the added tip was just as much as the discount lol! So much for that!

Went to pin traders to get my pins. They didn't have the Tangled pin set anywhere in DTD! We saw a bunch of them at Hollywood Studios! Argh. So I got the kiddie guys and the villains pin set instead. Right now cast members have 40% off (oh how I wish it would stay forever) so my $70 purchase went down to $40, whoohoo! And I got a secret key pin. For every $30 purchase you get it for $1. I know what my new obsession is going to be lol.

Then we stopped by my store and I got a magnetic notepad, my frame and a pair of earrings. All for a pretty good price! I didn't get my autograph book or my pens, boo. Maybe tomorrow? :D Walked around some more, oh! Went to Tren-D! That place is awesome! Annnnd....! I got a cool comic book-ish Alice in Wonderland hoodie and an Alice in Wonderland tote (which was twice the price at home than it was in Tren-D, crazy right?)! I'm so excited! Went to World of Disney, it was so crowded in there! And went to Basin, didn't find much I wanted there. I was tired by that point too lol. So we went home.

 Not looking forward to my 6AM shifts, I don't even know how that's going to work since it takes me an hour to get home from work and one of the nights they have me there til 11PM. Ugh, I'm going to be so sad. I already am! Gerrrr. I miss my car.

Alright, now off to make lunch and clean the apartment! My husband keeps telling me that when they do inspections they tear your apartment apart (like the military), I haven't heard of anyone say that but he says that his trainers had that happen to them. Anyone know if this is true?

Peter Pan... Tiana.... Cinderella... what?!

Okay, first of all... I'm really tired. I got off work early because I had an eLearning thing but I didn't get home as early as I thought I would... since I got home an hour after my shift. Damn you buses.

So I spent the day at Disney University, and I LOVE that building! The Heroes and Villains wall? Amazing! We did some eLearning stuff and did some register training. Stuff I already know oh so very well. And I had lunch at Magic Kingdom. I decided to go because 1) I was hungry and 2) Husband keeps talking about it so I went.

And I passed by Tinkerbell on the way in. In her hoodie and her fixed up hair. She's really short. Shorter than me. Could I audition for Tink? Maybe not. Damn being blind without my glasses. So I go in and I'm walking around in circles cause I'm confused and I don't know what to eat and... Peter Pan passes me. He's not in full costume but he has his red hair and his really cool hat. And now I'm wondering if his hair is real or a wig. And he was really cute. *ahem*. So I finally get food and I'm sitting a table away from Peter Pan who's having lunch with Tiana and her prince. It's so crazy. I look to my right and the step mother from Cinderella is having lunch with her daughters. Crazy!!! And of course, as I'm leaving, I pass by Cinderella.

This place is awesome. But really, this is going to take some getting use to. I'm kinda glad I don't work in Magic Kingdom... husband tells me stories about the princesses behind scenes and I know they're normal people and all that but come on! I think I'd be a little traumatized if I witnessed things lol. Oh, I was totally going to take a pic of the characters but I thought that'd be rude. And creepy. So I didn't. However, if Flynn was there.... who different story. I would walked up to him and been like "I totally know you're a normal person and I totally know you're on break.... but foreal, can I get a pic?" Haha!
I hate my schedule for next week, seriously. I'm unhappy. Well no, not really. I lied. But I'm not excited about it. Ergh. I hate closing. Seriously, I really really hate closing. Anywhere. :(

I'm going to go read, while I still have time.

Laundry day today. Why does the laundry room have to be so far?! Argh. And I need more juice. I need to get to Target and the mall too, somehow. Now I'm rambling. So sleepy and hungry. But I just ate. Wth.

So very tired.

You know, when I read other peoples CP blogs, I always wondered how you could be too tired to blog. And thought maybe they just didn't care enough to but... MAN. MAN OH MAN. The last few days have been SO tiring and hectic. Seriously, I'm sore, I'm tired, I just want to sleep. For the next week! My husband's been really tired too, he's been falling asleep on the floor while waiting for me to get done showering. Keep in mind, I only take like 15 minute showers!

I really wish I could post a totally detailed blog with lots of pictures of all of the awesome that is Florida and some helpful tips for Casting and Check In... but the truth is, I'm too tired. I had my first official clock in day today for orientation. Got my costume (which I'm not a huge fan of, but it's not that bad either), they give you like five pairs but they also give you a locker. I stuck half of mine in my locker. I don't need to bring all five pairs home! My husband got his work location... and it's an awesome ride that I love. I won't say what it is, in case he doesn't want me to. But his costume is pretty cool. He gets a jacket. I don't have a jacket, what's up with that Disney? I get cold all the time!! And can I just say that the Bippity Boppity has the best costume ever? Super cute.

Spent some time in Magic Kingdom. It was almost dark when we got there, so that wasn't much fun. I'm planning on getting autograph books (I get one every time I'm at Disneyland) and those collectible coin books and fill them up (I'm actually really excited about this one). I was walking around backstage with a "first time" pin and my name tag lol! Oh and I watched "Wishes" backstage behind the castle. It was amazing. Simply amazing!

I was going to say something and it totally slipped... oh! I hate the dryers and washers here. The washers are so icky. It's like years of soap build up in the soap thingie and the washers/dryers look so 80's! Also, the dryer shrunk our clothes! I don't know which setting to use, it's not like there's much of a description and you only have like 3 or 6 options to choose from. You'd think they'd be able to upgrade that stuff.
In happier news though... they fixed our shower. Thank goodness!!! 

Okay, I'm getting warm and fuzzy. I better get to bed. Even editing pictures is making me more tired. I'll try to write a better update soon guys.

We're here!

I'm here! I'm here!

We landed in Florida on Friday night and we browsed Downtown Disney yesterday. Today we're spending the day in the hotel room relaxing, trying to ease this jet lag (which really sucks) and finishing up paperwork. 

The weather is so much better here than at home! It's awesome! I also got some new pins for pin trading!

I LOVE pin trading! I was running around all over the place wanting to buy things and my husband was right behind me plucking said things out of my hand lol.

We move in tomorrow and I'm so nervous. I don't know what to expect and we have so many bags! I'm jealous of the people who drove and packed up their cars, so much easier for them! We're going to have to drag 6 bags of luggage everywhere, ugh. 

I got the newsletter for S&S finally! I picked out a few titles I've wanted for awhile.... like Haven! I'm so excited! I wish I could read it on my Kindle, but it's cool. I wish I could find a B&N, I hear Across The Universe is floating around! Argh, so sad.

I'll try to have posts ready for the next week, I don't think I'll be able to get any reading done any time soon, not until everything settles down.

Okay I'm hungry, so... :)
