Brainwashed

Fri, 2017-09-08 18:45
I'm sitting on hold with Disney dining to find out if I can make a dinner reservaton. Normally, I don't like sitting on hold. I always love calling Disney though and listening to their music while I wait. I'm even a little sad when they finally answer. Today, it made me think about all the times Dizneyfreak basically talks about how Disney knows how to manipulate us to be happy with them no matter what they do. I'm such a sucker. At least I'm a happy sucker though. :P

Hurricane Irma. Prayers

Fri, 2017-09-08 13:42
I'm right in the path of Irma in a mobile home. Hopefully not too mobile. I could really use some prayers and pixie dust that I'm not left homeless. Ginger and I will be with friends during the storm. It should be a cat 2 according to the news. I'm rounding up pictures, papers and anything that can't be replaced. Using the dishwasher,washer and dryer for storage. Hopefully that works.

Any other suggestions??

Is this a simulated ride? Does it move at all? Or is it a sit still that is just virtual? I'm pretty scared of heights, even the lift on Soarin (which I still end up riding), so I'm trying to decide if I can deal or not. I can handle Spaceship Earth only because I know in the back of my head I'm in a secluded area. :mickey:
