The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/07

Mini trip report! Read all the posts in this report here. We pick this day up right after finishing the race. Having finished much faster than expected, I indulged myself in a trip to the official race merch tent. After all, I couldn’t very well not have a souvenir from my all time best marathon, could I? Indeed not. I did a few laps before finally settling on a marathon jacket I hadn’t noticed the day before with a much cuter design than the one I had seen and rejected. It was ridiculously overpriced, but every time I wear it it’ll make...

In Which Jenn Is Headed To The WDW Marathon

On this day last year I was headed to WDW for the Dopey Challenge. I can’t say my heart isn’t breaking over the fact that I am not doing the same this year, but it helps to know that the horizon isn’t entirely barren: I am doing the marathon on its own! As I mentioned before, this thirtieth-birthday-present-to-myself is being performed on the super-cheap – fly in Saturday morning, fly out Sunday night, no parks. That does put a minor damper on things from one angle, but from another it gives me an unprecedented opportunity to explore the new...

In Which Jenn Cleans Her Face With Disneyness

There are the standard, expected Disney souvenirs – t-shirts and sweatshirts and picture frames and magnets and all manner of things shaped like Mickey Mouse and emblazoned with the Disney logo. These things are awesome and I have lots. They cheer me up immeasurably when I am away from WDW and I love that. But then, too, there are other things from WDW that are less expected. I use them all the time and they remind me in quieter, subtler ways of better days. Here I am thinking specifically of the subject of this particular still life: I used...

For the sake of flow, this report will be written by Jenn with Moon popping in for notes – don’t worry, these will be clearly delineated.

Hope you enjoy! To read all the posts in this report, click here.  Our final full day in California. Sigh. The parks weren’t opening until 10AM on this particular morning, which meant that we could sleep in....

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 1/17

An Ode to Bread Pudding (And a Gluten/Lactose-Free Recipe!)

This is a Jenn post. I figured I’d mention since it’s not in the post title. I am an acknowledged sweet tooth, and I’ll be the first to acknowledge it. If there were any possible way to achieve a balanced diet while consuming only dessert, I’d be the first person on board. One year for my birthday Moon gave me a can of frosting, and I was thrilled because as far as I’m concerned cake only exists as a conveyance for frosting anyway. Yay for eliminating the middleman! Indeed, there is no foodstuff in the world I love more...
