Ranting (not about Katie) - Mood:Good
Thursday December 28 200610:41:21 PM |
Is it just me, or didn't CaptainTrips used to have 99,999 posts? Did one get spam deleted, or am I insane in the membrane?

Also, I've come to the conclusion that we'd be far better off if everyone could drive cooperatively. Let's acknowledge that we are ALL trying to get somewhere, and work together to make that happen. Today, my boyfriend and I got stuck behind the bus in the far right lane. Lots of cars zoomed by us (with our turn signal on) in the lane next to us. The lane next to them, on the other hand, was ENTIRELY empty. Any one of these drivers could have taken note that we wanted over, and moved themselves over for a bit to help that happen. But noooo...Nobody can help anybody in Orlando. No wonder we're the angriest city! GRR!

Also, can someone please explain the issue with cloned animals for meat? If anything, the conservative base ought to see these as soulless animals and thus BETTER to eat than those born of mothers with souls.

Peace, love, and happiness - Mood:Good
Sunday December 24 20062:51:32 PM |
I'm creating a 3-CD gift set entitled Peace, Love, and Happiness.

For Peace, I'd like to focus on music that is soothing and enjoyable to listen to high (or if you don't get high, then music that is incredibly GOOD).

For Happiness, I'd like catchy music that isn't current pop music. Old pop music is fine, especially from the 80's and prior.

And for Love, I'd like less conventional love songs (though a few conventional ones are ok).

I have a pretty good idea of what to put on each CD, but I'm a few songs short on each. I've got SOME fillers I could put in, but I think yall might be able to give me ideas I haven't thought of.

Soooooooo...for your Christmas gift to me, please give me ideas! Also, please specify which category it should be considered under, as it may be a song I don't know (which is fine...I'm not opposed to new songs).

Please and thank you!

Is there such a thing as a healthy addiction? - Mood:Good

Is all addiction by nature bad, or can it be healthy?

Extra, extra! 8 year old`s opinion on beauty matters more than old man`s! Read all about it. - Mood:Good
Tuesday December 19 20068:47:58 PM |
Today I worked from 9-7:30. I had my first break at 11:45. My next at 1:55. My last at 6:20.

Boy was I angry. I told myself if I didn't get a 3rd break I was going to give my 2 weeks notice and just switch to full time at my other job after the holidays. I still might, but I'd prefer not to quit as it has great benefits (including health insurance and park admission). We'll see what happens.

An 8 year old told me I was beautiful today too. I have to say, I get hit on a fair bit, mostly by men at work, but this takes the cake. Somehow an 8 year old's opinion means more than an adult's.

I get told EVERY DAY by this 70 year old man how pretty I am. Today he told me I was so pretty it should be illegal.

I'm not telling you this to be narcissistic (Oh, worship me, I'm so pretty!), but to say how weird it is to be hit on by an old man daily. I don't know how to respond.

So...my best friend and I were once part of orkut.com, a forum/social networking site slightly unlike this one.

It had groups you could join, and one of these groups, Fly Chicks for the Geeky Guy, was quite awesome.

FCFTGG had a photo scavenger hunt (an idea we ought to consider here) and it was hellafun to participate in. I was under the weather during most of the hunt, but I gave it my all anyway, because all it took was going places and taking pictures.

At any rate, my best friend (the one who neglected to tell me she was engaged) e-mailed me today because she had found the photo gallery online.

Her e-mail message was simply "Wow," and I think she was right on the money.

Wow indeed.

Possibilities of Shwag - Mood:Good
Sunday December 17 20061:36:14 AM |
Nobody's f*cking online right now, so I'm sure this journal will get 2 replies, if that.

BUT!...

I had a fun experience today worth writing about, so here goes.

At work, a man approached me asking how to use his silver pass in the fastpass machines. I said I didn't know how silver passes worked and had never seen one, and he said it was like a maingate admission pass. I told him to use his cast ID, but he explained he worked for Pixar. I decided to give him some extra attraction re-entry passes for any ride in the park, because I like to hook up fellow employees.

Well, later he was riding and asked for my email address and sent me an email asking for my address so he can send me some "shwag" from their newest feature.

I don't really know what "shwag" is, outside of it's marijuana connotation. But I'm pretty excited about the possibilities of shwag.

Pirates (-ish) - Mood:Good
Tuesday December 12 200612:13:27 AM |
I got a new favorite song yesterday.

A song I'd heard before, I'm sure, but yesterday it became my favorite. It was a day of discovery.

The song is Hem of your Garment by Cake. It makes me want to sing and dance.

Something that doesn't make me want to sing and dance is the cereal I'm eating. It's the bottom of the box of Raisin Nut Bran and it's heavy on the nuts and bran but completely devoid of raisins! What's Raisin Nut Bran without the raisins?

I really love this song.

Oh, and I put it on a CD entitled "Scurvy--It's not just for pirates anymore", inspired by the fact that every song on it was from a CD I owned. No pirated music whatsoever.

And while I'm on the topic of pirates, I might as well tell you of the Secret Santa gift I got for work. A fresh bar of designer soap with a pirate flag design and a sea sponge.

The drama of Baby Bop and a few other things. - Mood:Happy
Thursday December 07 20061:22:39 PM |
1-I've missed you, youthink. It's time for us to get reacquainted.

2-Yesterday there was some drama at the Kidzone. BJ and Baby Bop (Barney's friends) came to Woody's nutcoaster to ride, but were turned away by the controls operated who made a PA announcement that "Dinosaurs are not able to ride Woody's nuthouse coaster". All the other employees were up in arms about it. One such employee said to me, very passionately, "Now, Baby Bop and BJ will NEVER come back to ride again." Grow up. So what if these jackasses don't come ride our ride in costume. Why should I care? Obviously they're a little too sensitive if they're going to get that angry about not being able to ride anyway. The girl who turned them away has only worked here two weeks. She was afraid of getting in trouble, since you get in trouble for so much sh*t around here. But work thrives on drama. Without it, everyone would have nothing to do but actually work.

Magic Making to the Max - Mood:Sexy
Saturday December 02 200610:28:52 PM |
"I'm bringing sexy back," said the hideously unattractive cast member as she passed me in the bypass corridor.

"Doubtful," I thought, as I moved to my destination.

I got to work this morning at 10:05 for a 10:45 shift. I needed to be early, however, as I had to change into costume and let some friends into the park at 10:30.

When I came in, my ride was down due to technical difficulties of a moderate-severe nature. I had high hopes that we would be down for at least the better part of the morning. Alas, these dreams were shot down when I returned to find the ride in perfect working order.

I clocked in for my shift, and to my dismay I was no longer scheduled for a shift at the ride, but instead to work crowd control at a Christmas show where the characters sing and dance, Mickey's Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Does Thanksgiving turn sane people into insane ones? - Mood:Spent
Friday November 24 20062:14:51 AM |
Work today was the worst I've had since starting back at Disney.

There's something about the holidays that turn guests into madmen (and women and children, as the cases may be).

It's funny, you have so many people complaining on holidays about this or that, and you wonder, "Why are you yelling at me? You're the one who came to a theme park on a holiday!"

The highlights of the night were being cussed at by an old man under his breath as he walked away, watching a young man throw up relentlessly and smelling it, and being yelled at by the first dozen or so guests in line about how unfair it was that the fastpass line got to move and they didn't.

Fastpass guests were none too happy either, though, as their line was backed up to a 45 min. wait.

It was pure chaos really

I had so many people wanting supervisors. It was extraordinary.

Was your Thanksgiving full of chaos too?

Even the cooking part of Thanksgiving was rather chaotic

I think it's j

Two fingers? One? Open palm? - Mood:Good
Tuesday November 21 20069:02:11 PM |
I just finished the first two days of orientation for Universal. I'm surprised by how much like Disney they are.

For instance, Disney requires a two-fingered or open palmed point, rather than a single-fingered one, preferring a two-fingered. Universal requires the same, favoring the open palm method (probably because the 2-fingers were already taken by Disney).

Universal also has almost the same looks standards as Disney. I thought that Universal would be the kind of company to be cool with pink hair, but apparently no. They're not even cool with my teeny "hoop" earrings (which aren't actually hoops at all, but merely earrings that are hoopesque).

Universal did a much better job of making their orientation entertaining than Disney, but their costuming system sucks major ass. You can't check costumes out and bring them home. You have to change in and out of it every day at work. What a hassle!

Falling down the rabbit hole, backwards - Mood:Good
Monday November 13 20063:52:04 PM |
I was at the Food and Wine festival at EPCOT a couple of days ago, waiting in line for food in Australia, when BAM! suddenly I hit the ground. It was a very odd experience. Everything kind of faded away and I felt like I was falling backwards for a pretty endless amount of time, until I opened my eyes and reoriented myself, realizing there were people standing over me and I was lying on the ground. Apparently I passed out. I hadn't hit my head, luckily. My elbow broke my fall.

I tried to stand up and passed out again, this time being caught by a lovely old lady. I ended up sitting off to the side for a while. The paramedics came and took my blood sugar, which was dangerously low (below 40, they wouldn't tell me what number exactly) and blood pressure. They made me eat a tube of lemon-flavored glucose to bring me back to normal.

I ended up getting carted around in a wheelchair for the next hour, eating at pretty much every country I could.

Tuesday October 31 20061:21:47 PM |
I'm so proud of myself. I just assembled my desk all by myself, although the directions said it required 2 people.

I have so much to do today including (but not limited to) washing my car, buying new work shoes, unpacking as much sh*t as I can, cleaning my apartment, cleaning my boyfriend's house (sorta), and laundry.

Oh, and carving a pumpkin of course.

Yesterday was my first day back at Space Mtn. Everyone was surprised to see me back and EVERYBODY asked how my ex-boyfriend was (we were a known Space Mtn. couple). But alas, I have since moved on to another Space Mountaineer. I'm such a Space ho.

I was nervous yesterday about working because I was afraid I'd break the ride down or be in controls during a breakdown. Thankfully neither happened. I'm going to freak out a lot the first time we break down and I'm in controls, even though I'm sure everything will come rushing back to my memory when it inevitably occurs.

Anyway I've missed youthink. Anything

And so it begins... - Mood:Bored
Thursday October 26 20065:37:43 PM |
I just finished with Traditions, the 8 hour class that all Disney cast members must take to become acquainted with Disney's heritage, standards, and values.

I love the false enthusiasm cast members have 24/7, even for each other.

I am happy to say I am officially immune to the powerful brainwashing techniques of the company. Last time I worked for them I was not so immune.

So far I'm really enjoying Orlando. The people are all so friendly and there's no weird racial tension like in SC. I don't know if I've suddenly become more at ease with approaching others or if I've become more approachable, but I've had a good deal of pleasant conversation with strangers lately (usually I hate small talk).

The class today made me wonder--is Disney racist?

There's never been a black princess.

What do you think?

Wednesday October 18 200610:22:30 PM |
Today is my 6 month anniversary with youthink. Which means, I've officially been with youthink longer than my boyfriend.

Hahaha. In your face, James. Youthink was my lover first.

Also, I leave tomorrow morning for Orlando. It's so exciting and yet scary moving somewhere new(ish). I mean, granted I've lived there before, but this time is semi-permanent! And I have to be mature and grown up. I hope I can handle it. Or at least make believe that I can.

My car is CRAZY full. I hope I can see between the boxes enough to drive on the interstate tomorrow.

Riding the spinner, drunken karaoke, breakdancing ninjas, and MORE. - Mood:Hysterical
Saturday October 14 200611:40:19 PM |
Well, I’ve just gotten back from meeting my first YTers. I’m really pleased with the experience.

I was told that pictures had already been posted from the event, but searching for them I didn’t find any. I’m a little concerned about them because I’m not sure I remember taking them all.

I was relieved to find out that other YTers are just ordinary people. I don’t know if anyone else gets this experience, but I find that when I talk to people on the internet, I automatically assume the worst about them (that being that they are just creepy stalkers who live behind computers avoiding reality). Perhaps this is an irrational thought pattern, but Dateline has me scared of the computer. But you’ll be relieved to know that they turned out to be just normal people like me who happen to be addicted to this ridiculous website. I mean, they may be creepy stalkers TOO, but at least they’re as fun to hang out with in person as

Brrrr...it`s cold in here. (there must be some torros in the atmosphere?) - Mood:Depressed
Friday October 13 200611:10:15 AM |
^I'm not really depressed. But it was the coldest mood, and that's the mood I'm in. "Cold." And also lazy. Too lazy to adapt the mood.

So it's 60 degrees out and our air conditioning is on full blast at 65!!! This is ridiculous. I'm getting tired of these motherf*cking thermostats in this motherf*cking house.

The reasoning behind the big freeze is "We're packing up and doing a lot around the house so we need to cool off." Well if that's the case, go outside! It's nice and cool out there. And leave the house COMFORTABLE.

Can't wait to go to Greenville and meet some YTers and ninjas.

Vote for which Halloween costume I should order!!! - Mood:Happy
Monday October 09 200611:38:26 AM |
So my replacement (for when I leave this job in four days' time) is not going to be taking the job after all. Which means they have no replacement for me.

I doubt they can hire someone and give me time to train them in the next three days and nobody has told me what the contingency plan is yet. Assuming there is one.

For some reason this makes me laugh. I feel like they haven't done enough to find someone and have sat and dragged their feet. I gave them OVER a month's notice.

Anyway, not something I will lose sleep over!

So I need your help picking a costume. If you have seen one better than the one pictured (for less than about $45), let me know!

Option A: Minnie Mouse

Option B: Pirate Wench

Option C: Pirate Wench 2

Option D: ???

Please send help.

Riddle me this one. - Mood:Disgusted
Sunday October 08 20061:23:45 PM |
I've noticed a LOT of criticism of others over their looks lately (via YT, that is).

I want to know why.

Is it motivated by an existing dislike of a person's personality, and seen as another way to get under their skin?

Does it make you feel better by comparison knowing that there is someone who is that much less attractive than you? And you feel it necessary to point this newfound power out?

Or are people just mean?

Would you be insulting these people to their faces, about the way genetic assignment they ended up with?

I'm trying to make this a journal, but there's nothing to report on my life. My boyfriend appears to be going crazy from lack of sleep and refuses to listen to my good advice.

I spent today doing nothing, and I'm pretty happy with that decision.

I really wish we had a mood write-in box. I'm far too lazy to go through the trouble of putting in my own.

For the record, my mood is moody.

It's music downloading time and I need to axe, what should I download?

I also wanted to axe, what is your cell phone's ring tone?

Mine's been the intro to Funkytown for a long time, but I'm changing it to the Haunted Mansion song (Grim Grinning Ghosts) as of this moment. It's seasonal now.
