Year of a million dreams....

When I was a little girl I spent a lot of time at Disneyland. And for some reason I was fascinated by the people who cleaned up trash. They had those really cool, long dustpan things and I wanted their job when I grew up. I know, dream big, right? A few summers ago, my dream came true when some Disneyland Cast Members let me use their dustpans to clean up the park. Well, it could have come true on a more permanent basis when we decided to move to Orlando for the summer. Only I decided to pass on the custodial opportunity and accepted a position at the Blizzard Beach Water Park instead. That's right, I am the new slide operator. You might ask what that means. I'm not really sure. But so far what it means is that I have an ID card that gets me in the parks for free and I don't actually start working for a few more days!!! Happy birthday to me!!

Okay so what it really means is that I was the lame 25 year old single rider grinning from ear to ear in the Magic Kingdom today. Some guy in the Dumbo line asked me if I was with a kid. Like everyone doesn't secretly want to ride Dumbo by their self.

Here is me in front of the Castle.

Here is my self portrait on the Carousel.

And I wasn't kidding about the whole lame 25 year old thing either. I really don't think that is the right age though. I'm pretty sure my birth certificate is wrong, or someone messed up somewhere because 25 just doesn't sound right! Li took good care of me on my birthday; check out the stack of presents he wrapped up for me!

And here I am modeling a few of my treasures.

How cute are you on the carosel! And in black and white! Good gracious I have a cute friend! I love that your birthday presents had a theme! I'm guessing you want to test your thumb to see if it's green! I hope yours is greener than mine, I usually kill everything I try to grow! I have to agree with the age thing! We seem way to young and cool to be 25! I'm glad you had a great birthday, wish I could've have been hanging out in Disney World with you!

I am planning on calling you back one of these days, I have a funny bank story of my own to tell you!

I worked there last summer and did Custodial at the Magic Kingdom. I imagine it would be fun to work the water parks, but I had a blast doing what I did, and rather miss it in a lot of ways. Have a great time!
