Somebody touched a nerve…and got a low-blow for their trouble! There are often moments in life when we know, with absolute certainty, that we should not say something…and then often cannot resist saying it anyway.
I ordered the charms earlier this week, based on the results of the survey, so those should be arriving sometime in the next few months! The designs that didn’t make the cut will be made into stickers instead, so they won’t go to waste. Thank you again to everyone that was a part of that decision!
Earlier this week I was in Disney World, courtesy of Cory’s folks. It was definitely interesting. I went there when I was 10, so it was rather surreal to go back and see what I remembered…and a lot of what I’d forgotten. I’m not sure Disney World is really the kind of place for me. I like to participate and create. Disney World is more about consuming and experiencing. I really struggled with that! I’m a bit like Lieutenant Angel from Hot Fuzz – I can’t switch off! I always want to see behind the curtain, understand how something works, pick it apart from every angle. I spent more time examining Disney for its worth as a cultural contributor, or how mercantilism is mixed with heartfelt shmaltz, than I did shrieking on the rides. (I’m not really a shrieker, anyway. It turns out I’m a nervous laugher.) I wish I could have seen more about how they designed the parks, or characters and films. I guess my “perfect Sunday” vacation would be in a museum of animation, rather than a theme park celebrating animations.
What would your “perfect Sunday” vacation be?
