The Jenn Method of Haranguing Moon Into Riding Roller Coasters

JENN: Okay, so today’s topic is one that is near and dear to my heart: The Jenn Method for Haranguing Moon Into Riding Roller Coasters. MOON: NO. JENN: YES. MOON: … Okay. JENN: Annnd that’s it! Thanks everybody for your time. Nothing a good punch in the face can’t cure. No, but seriously: First I would like us all to cast our minds back, back, back to 2008, and our very first WDW trip of the modern era. Moon has never been a roller coaster sort of person, but because WDW coasters tend to (mostly) be on the milder...

In Which Jenn & Moon & Minx & Ruffian & Hoodoo Try Energy Bits

Hi there! Jenn here. A little backstory: a few weeks ago I randomly tweeted to our scores and scores of devoted followers that we had never used any kind of energy gels or beans or what have you, and did anyone having suggestions?

And then Energy Bits themselves tweeted back – seriously, this Twitter team is ON TOP OF IT – offering samples for review. Which we accepted because it sounds awesome and also because OMG SAMPLES...

MOON: I have no idea – I think we initially decided to bake them to go with tea a couple years ago. JENN: That does sound like something we would do. We started talking about tea pretty quickly...

The Fairest Week in Review: 8/5

JENN:  Recap! How was your workout week? MOON:  I am sad now that most of my running is back indoors, but other than that my week was good! Nothing too big to report. How was yours? JENN: I did okay. I got all my mileage out of the way in an acceptable fashion but didn’t accomplish anything remarka – WAIT A MINUTE. Almost forgot because it was last Monday, but I did 13.1 miles in 2 hours 11 minutes. One minute away from my official goal! Six minutes from my unofficial pie in the sky goal. MOON: Yay! Congratulations!!...

Photographic Memory: Carnotaurus? You hardly know us!

First of all, the pun in the post title is entirely Jenn’s fault. Don’t blame Moon for that. It was out of her control. Anyway – welcome to the first post in our series Photographic Memory, in which we discuss… wait for it… the memories we have attached to photos from WDW. Sometimes the photo itself might not even be that good or high in quality (see below), but if we’ve got a story about it to share it’s fair game! This particular picture is from the on-ride photo taken of your Time Rover when being attacked by the...
