My Disney Journey

This blog was a journey of my application to Walt Disney World's Cultural Representative Program, from sorting out my CV through all the interviews to a year of having a mouse for a boss! Now, watch as I try to get back to my second home.

Fingers Crossed! September 15, 2011

My weekend away was amazing! The Expo was brilliant, and meeting Jeph Jacques was just plain awesome. As are the sketches he’s done for my walls! 😀 I also managed to spend a little time actually in the capital itself, and I’ve decided that, unless you like museums, Washington DC doesn’t have a huge amount to offer. I guess it might’ve just been the part of town I was in, but I couldn’t find a cute cafe for lunch anywhere!!! I ended up eating sushi at the airport instead!

Can I also just say that I’ll never get used to coming off an airplane and not having to go through passport check! That was just plain weird!

Since I came back, I’ve mostly been working. I spent Tuesday evening after work with Teddy and Ashley, with the plan of having dinner somewhere. We decided upon Saratoga Springs, but got there just after the Turf Club had stopped seating. So we ended up eating at The Artist’s Palette instead. It was still rather yummy, and quite a bit cheaper which is a bonus!

I don’t have a huge amount in the way of plans for the next few days, although I am spending Saturday with a bunch of my Floridian friends. We’re celebrating 4 different birthdays (mine included) by spending the day in Epcot. I believe some people will be “Drinking around the World”. Whether or not I join in is yet to be seen, but I’m not sure I can get that much alcohol in me! I may just have to steal a gulp of other people’s from time to time… at least I can have said I’ll have done it then!

For now, I should be sleeping though. Night!



Don’t you just love spontaneity! September 8, 2011

The last couple of weeks have been quite fun for me! I’ve been working, as per usual. Work keeps changing it’s mind between busy and dead, but even on the quieter days the tips are improving, which is good.

I’ve been baking a little bit too! I had a party to go to last weekend, for Labor Day. It was Hawaiian themed, so I made a pineapple upside down cake! This was probably a bad idea with spring-form pans… the syrup kinda leaked out of the bottom, and made a horrid mess in the oven! Oppsy. It tasted really good though, everyone seemed to enjoy it!

And then last night, I made a meringue base for a pavlova! We’ve got a cast backstage BBQ going on today, which should be fun!

This weekend, I’m taking a couple of days off and flying north a bit to a place called Bethesda. Flying early Saturday morning, and back late on Sunday night. I just decided to be spontaneous, and there’s a convention, show type thing going on that I thought could be fun! So why the hell not?!

As for now, I should be heading into epcot! Let’s hope my pavlova goes down well! 😀
