Back from Disneyland!

The family and I are back from Disneyland.  Some quick notes:

  • Despite my best memories, Pirates of the Caribbean is, indeed, too scary for a two-year-old.  And said two-year-old may insist on being carried for the whole rest of the day.
  • I read neonepiphany's blog about The Da Vinci Code right before leaving, and it ruined my reading of my vacation book, Angels and Demons.  (Because she is right.)
  • Space Mountain is as cool as I remember.  (It seems gravity-driven for so long, that I expected the ride to end underground.)
  • The best place to stay when going to Disneyland is Best Western's Park Place Inn.
  • The magnitude of the Princess Marketing Phenomenon is staggering.

Any excuse to be carried around is a good excuse :)

I'm sorry! I didn't mean to ruin anything for you... :(

Don't be silly! I knew the risks before I read your critique. Besides, the gist of my comment is that your critique was correct. So while I read Angels and Demons, I kept running into spots where I'd think, "Ooh, Selva would have a field day with that line." (Only after my vacation did I discover that you read it too.)

So, can someone whose favorite Shoujo manga is Peach Girl enjoy Kare Kano?

Well, I think *everyone* can enjoy Kare Kano! ^^

If you like Peach Girl, you should probably read Hana Yori Dango too (Boys Before Flowers).

Kare Kano: Will give it a shot!
Hana Yori Dango: Appreciate the recommendation, but can't do it. Artwork crosses my saccharine-tolerance threshold. I know I'm missing some gems because of indefensible personal bias. What can I say?

I'm proud enough that I got beyond my Kevin Costner and Girl Flick bias enough to watch and enjoy the rather good Upside of Anger.

    Good to see you checking in at LJ again, too. No, I'm not online anywhere like we used to be at LJ and Plurk. I really liked having a place where we could share our thoughts in a long-form post that…

    I "Searched" some of your archive looking for the fluorescent bulb post, but couldn't find it through 2009-02-06, and before that, LiveJournal no longer offers pages of your feed, just daily access,…

    Ha ha! How coincidental, I was thinking about light bulbs yesterday myself. One of my Instagram contacts mentioned that the EU regulates the types of light bulbs people can use in their homes in…
