Earth is Great, Batuu is Better

It would turned out that I lied just a little when I said that nothing interesting has really happened over the past few weeks. In fact, something amazing happened just over a week ago. I got to travel to a whole new planet! As many people know, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening here in

The Rise and Fall of the 800-Year Old Swamp Witch

It’s Sunday, already? How the ever-loving hell did that happen? This time last week I was freaking out about my book being born into the world and now it has happened! If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you probably should. You can do that by clicking here. It’s okay, I’ll wait. Things were

Your Son Just Slapped A Mammoth

I have to admit that originally I was going to title this “Your Son Just Bitch-Slapped A Mammoth” but my blog cross-posts to my Twitter which is followed by a lot of educational professionals and I thought it wouldn’t be the best to put that on my page. I’m honestly not the type to have

Something, Something, Something, Dark Side

So my tax return arrived on Wednesday. Then I waved goodbye to it on Thursday. Like you do. I originally hoped to earmark the money for another cruise for my birthday but for now that idea is on hold. It’s likely still gonna happen but I had to send money on another adventure for the

That Banshee Stole My Turkey So I Ate Him

So, if ya’ll were expecting a wonderful post about what I’m grateful for today, you are about to be HORRIBLY let down. Instead, I’m sitting here wondering why the hell my neighbors decided it was a good idea to start setting off fireworks on the golf course behind my house. It’s very safe to say

I Can Be My Own Damn Valentine

In my 32 years on this earth, I have only ever had one real Valentine and even then I can’t really count that. You probably wonder what on earth I could mean by “real” and why I’m not counting it – I will gladly break it down for you. Sophomore Year, High School: I’m dating

There’s Finally A Magic Band That Matches My Soul

I remember when Walt Disney World first started rolling out Magic Bands. It was the year I moved to Florida and subsequently became a Passholder. Upon completing my sign-up for my pass I was instructed to choose a Magic Band. I was totally opposed to them for no real reason. Part of me didn’t really

2018 Epcot Festival of the Arts; or, I’m Just Going to Eat Everything

I’m so excited that Disney decided to bring back the International Festival of the Arts for another year. More so that they decided to run the event all week rather than just three days… kind of. In 2017 for the inaugural event, Disney only ran the event three days a week- Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: The 25th Walt Disney World Marathon

There’s a lot to be said about running a marathon. As most know, it’s not my most favorite thing in the world. Erica loves them but I’m perfectly okay with running my half marathons and calling it a day. Yet, the Walt Disney World Marathon holds a special place in my heart because it was
