Tut, tut, tut, it looks like rain June 30, 2011

Drip, drip, drop, little April showers-okay so it’s the end of June, so maybe I should make April July or something. But as you can probably guess from the title, it’s been raining. In fact, it’s been raining all day, and it only just stopped now. I had something to do today, and I got drenched, I changed my socks 3 times because my feet got soaked.

3 times…

The third time I was at Down Town Disney, and I stepped into a HUGE puddle by mistake…luckily there is a shop that sells socks there, so I got more mismatched socks-because I really needed socks. But I couldn’t change until I got home because my shoes were wet, and if I had changed then the new socks would have gotten wet..so..yeah.

I had planned on seeing a movie, but my feet were just so cold, and wet…I just went home. I did get a nice coffee though. There’s nothing like being home on a wet day.

Tomorrow I’m going to Epcot with my new friend Cody. Hopefully, it won’t rain…but if it does, I have ponchos!

 

Not much to say June 19, 2011

Tomorrow, my mum and dad finally come for four days! I can’t wait, it’s going to be a blast…there is so much to do, but o course so little time. Things have been going really well here, work has been good, despite the fact that there have been some hiccups here and there. I’m loving it. I’ll be moving into attractions soon, July 17th is the date I move into that job. I still don’t know where I’m going to be yet, but at least I know now the date I start! We’re getting a new roommate today. Dunno when she’s going to arrive or where she’ll be from…but let’s hope things are going to work out

I can’t really think of much else to say. But I did get to go to the last day of Star Wars Weekend, which was really fun (despite the fact I’m not a Star Wars nerd). I got my picture taken with an Ewock, and a Storm Trooper. The whole Star Wars area is actually really cool. The new ride is amazing, and they have Jedi Training for kids. I love watching that because the kids learn how to use a light saber and then they get to fight Darth Vader or Darth Maul. The two “vaders’ are trying to get them to join the ‘Dark Side’, but of course they kids don’t. Though, when I watch the training, I often think: “What if a kid wants to join the dark side?” “What if a kid is a huge Darth Vader fan?”  I mean, they can’t stop the kid if he or she wants to join the Dark Side….

And this is exactly why they don’t allow 24 year olds to do Jedi Training…

So that’s it for now folks! Have a great day, afternoon, and night!

 

Random title… June 3, 2011

Yes…not sure what to title this one. Well tomorrow is my last day at the Boardwalk…thank God! Now don’t get me wrong, the resort is beautiful, and the view that comes along with it is great. I’d have to say that both the CPs and Part and Full timers have been the nicest ones I’ve worked with…but working there is just so confusing! There are far to many things I don’t know there…like all the stuff you have to know (or perhaps should know) if you’re in the ESPN store. I don’t know enough about sports or sport teams to help people there. I mean, it’s like this for me:

Guest: “Do you have any Steelers stuff?”

Me: “…Steelers…that’s football right?”

Guest: *Laughing* “Yes.”

Me: “Sorry, I don’t normally work here…and I know nothing about sports. I do know though, that what ever is out..is what they have.”

And that’s how almost every conversation goes for me there…

Ugh…it’s just so hard…I’ll be glad to be going back to the Grand, where at least I know what is in each store. But my time there is almost up, I’ll be in attractions soon, and I should find out where I’ll be soon as well. Fingers crossed for The Lion King show!

Anyways..today I don’t start until 5:30 (YUCK), so I went to Downtown Disney for a bit…I mean, why not? And they had their performing arts thing going on, and there was going to be a middle school show choir performing, people were advertising it, and I thought I might as well go and see it.

I wish I hadn’t.

Thank goodness Simon Cowell wasn’t there, I think he would have teared them apart! Since when does screaming qualify as singing? The mics will get your voice to us, don’t make it any louder than it already is! And please,stay on key! And stop singing from your nose! There were times when they sounded good…when they all sang together. And some of them sounded okay by themselves, I understand…they’re middle schoolers, their voices are still developing, but still, maybe they should sing songs that aren’t so wildly ranged? Kid, I don’t know how old you are, but I don’t think your voice is ready to pull off Freddie Mercury, especially Freddie Mercury singing “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  Please I’d like to keep my hearing while I still have it

Why can’t you guys stay in sync? There were times when you guys did great with your dance moves, but other times you were off!  Little red-haired kid who was always in the front, do you know the words or are you mouthing Watermelon, cantaloupe, and the other fruit you’re supposed to mouth when you don’t know the words? Yes I can see you not singing! And yes it makes you stick out like a sore thumb! I was in choir…I know these things!

So to wrap it up, they weren’t amazing, and they weren’t really bad. They were a middle school show choir, and once their voices develop more I’m sure most of them will sound really good. I think they should have picked better songs, because the ones they picked where rather hard to sing.

Anyways…that’s really about it. I kinda just wrote my first review! Maybe one day I’ll be writing one for a play, book, or movie!
