a day on the d-list

@ 7:24pm last night, i was riding disney’s magical bus system back -yes, I said back people- back to the magic kingdom for mickey’s very merry christmas party. the day began innocently enough, I never did get back to sleep last night, not really, but at least the plane ride was uneventful… [I flew southwest – that was pretty d-list]. arrived on time in orlando and got on the first of many buses i will be luxuriating on this weekend. i toyed with grabbing a cab and flying over to the carribean beach resort, but decided that was too b-list for me.

i reached the magic kingdom about 115pm earlier that afternoon- mousefest 101 was in full swing, dr.scopa giving the sermon on the mouse. actually, i couldn’t hear much, but i was able to identify the following key players:

  • scopa
  • dave marx
  • mongello
  • matt hochberg and his lovely fiancee, marissa
  • mike newell – with his wife
  • dan!
  • eric
  • mouseguest ma and cathy

there were also several chatters from the MGW boards and other sites that i recognized. ok, i use the term “recognize” loosely, as angel had to stand in front of me and wave around his head to toe KISS gear before i got it..

then things took a turn for the freaky.. biblioadonis aka george appeared out of nowhere, said hello, then began to rattle off every podcaster/blogger name i have ever heard and quick succession. and point them out. i was surrounded people. i try to remain calm, but it all started to seem a bit freaky to me. there was a bit of further discussion, then i morphed back over to the MG group. we were given special incentive by mr. hochberg himself to go ask mike newell a certain question about a certain zombie kid i know. we have yet to realize the material benefit from that fateful meeting, but i will keep you updated.

important to note: went to the dole whip meet. on the walk over, met big brian from nc, he introduced me to the large north carolina contingent. and deb! a fan of TDCs!

OKAY, IMPORTANT SIDE NOT AND LEARNING POINT FOR ME. IF I TRULY WANT TO ACHIEVE AT LEST C+ STATUS, I’M APPARENTLY GOING TO HAVE TO A) WRITE PEOPLES NAMES DOWN SO I CAN REMEMBER THEM (HELLO? MY PUBLIC WILL NOT BE HAPPY IF I CAN’T TELL A DEBBY FROM A MARIA) AND B) I’M GOING TO HAVE TO BE BOLD ABOUT GETTING OTHERS TO TAKE PICS WITH ME IN THEM ALONGSIDE THE DIS-RATTI.

anywho, again, that dole meet was swarming with them! fred block, ray from bare necessities, oh, and some guy named looouuuuuuuuuuuuu.

ok, and let’s not kid ourselves, most importantly (!), like 4 people identified the TDCs logo on my shirt and either said they loved our segment and/or asked if jennifer was there??!! that was freaky and super cool at the same time!

alright now. it’s actually almost 7am and i need to shower and pack up for today’s events and gratuitous wardrobe changes, so i’ll have to quit.  more about the CBR, MVMCP and dis-ratti soon.. oh yeah, and i am going to have become comfortable – quickly- with pimpin’ “the girl’s ride out” on sunday.
