The Fairest Trip Report Of All: The Wave Review

The trip report is over, but I still have a couple of posts left in me! In particular, food reviews. If you want to catch up on my Dopey experience, you can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go! As you may recall if you read that day’s trip report, our ADR at the Wave was last minute – and also, we cheated. Pat and I were in line for the Haunted Mansion when we came to the conclusion that the Wave seemed like a good dinner option. I checked the online reservation system...

In Which Jenn Has A Different Kind Of Locker Room Envy

As I continue to adjust to real gym life, I make small discoveries. Apparently working out among many is far different from working out among few. Go figure. For example: do you experience locker room envy? No, I don’t mean feeling jealous that other people are skinnier or more toned or whatever than you are. What I mean is rather that stab of jealousy I get when I walk into the locker room before my work out and encounter people who have CLEARLY just finished. Maybe they’re a little sweaty; maybe they’re changing clothes. Maybe they’re merely pulling their...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/24

MOON: So, what I thought was a cold turned out to be a respiratory infection and something else that Christian said (and you never want med students describing your illness with terms you’ve never heard before). :/ I did…. no running since the last time we spoke. XD JENN: Awww. That’s icky. 🙁 I ran 30 miles but there was nothing remarkable about them. I don’t think I’ll make that again this week but I want to try to get close. Feeling better, at least? MOON: I feel so much better than I did over the weekend, but I’m still pretty...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Boatwright’s Review

The trip report is over, but I still have a couple of posts left in me! In particular, food reviews. If you want to catch up on my Dopey experience, you can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go! Pat and I spent the evening of January 8 at the Animal Kingdom, which as is so often the case in the off season closed at 5PM. This gave us ample time for dinner, so we after dumping our stuff back in our Port Orleans Riverside room, we figured we might as well see if...

In Which Jenn Defends D.C.’s Snow Policies

Look, just let me explain, okay? I hit the gym on Monday and overheard several locker room ladies making fun of the D.C. area for freaking out in the face of snow. “I’m moving to Canada,” declared one. “They know how to handle it.” Then this morning the local news radio station had a whole spot dedicated to how apparently Jimmy Fallon mocked us on his show the other night about our shutdown in the face of Monday night’s snowstorm. And everywhere you go you hear former New Englanders complaining about how locals have no idea how to drive...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/18

MOON: Sorry about being late – just got hit with a bad cold/flu. It’s still in the beautiful morphing stages so we’ll see what it turns into. :/ It’s really bumming my running schedule out today. How are you? JENN: Bleh. I hate when being sick messes with your running schedule! I find that working out can help when you feel like you have a bit of a cold, but anything more extreme and you’re outta commission. I think the rule is above the chest symptoms = go ahead and run, chest symptoms = DO NOT RUN? Never mess with your...

In Which Jenn Joins A Real Gym

I have joined a gym. It is not my fault. My new apartment, while lovely in many other ways, does not offer its own gym. Not that apartment gyms are generally that great anyway; in my experience maintenance is spotty and equipment is meager. Still, it’s always been nice to have. I briefly considered purchasing my own treadmill, even though nice ones are expensive, just because I loved the convenience factor. However, the prospect of then inevitably MOVING said treadmill to my next location put me off the idea, to say nothing of what to do in the event...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery Review

The trip report is over, but I still have a couple of posts left in me! In particular, food reviews. If you want to catch up on my Dopey experience, you can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go!  Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery is easy to miss if you’re not looking for it, but you’re a seasoned Disney vet like me, so I’m sure you’re already looking for it. (And if you’re not, don’t worry – just go to Harambe, pass Tamu Tamu and Festival of the Lion King, and you’ll find it...

In Which Jenn Points Out Posts You May Have Missed

Hey, you know how occasionally you’ll be watching a sitcom and it will dawn on you with slow horror that what you’re actually seeing is a clips show? Yeah, I’m doing that. It’s not so bad! I applied logic to this decision, I swear! It’s merely that it occurs to me that this blog is closer to its second birthday than it isn’t, and there are probably at least a few readers who are kinda new. I happen to be a huge fan of trip reports, and I’ve been known to plumb archives for them myself. Why not make...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/10

JENN: So how was your training this week? MOON: It was good! Lots of running and exercising. 😀 No big milestones, but it was steady. How was your week? JENN: Good! It’s been an interesting week because I just started using an actual, real gym as opposed to a basement apartment “gym.” More on that in a later post but let me just say that it takes some getting used to. Sadly, this has nothing to do with it. Anyway, I’m slowly working my way up to my old endurance levels and it’s actually kinda working. I would’ve made it to 30...
