In Which Jenn Locates Vintage WDW Souvenir Clothes

I’ve mentioned this before, but in case you’re new and/or don’t have all my personal details memorized: my parents are in the processing of moving to NC, and are cleaning out their MD home to sell. This means digging through 20+ years of detritus, including the absolutely horrifying trash heap that is my childhood bedroom. Part of this is actual trash, and part is a study in the changing fancies of growing up: I’m talking posters of unicorns, stuffed animals, decades-old homework, and – I kid you not – a life size cutout of Star Trek: Voyager‘s Lt.

The Fairest Week in Review: 7/22

JENN: Wanna do our weekly? MOON: Sure! JENN: Then let’s hit it! How’d your training go this week? MOON: Rather well, actually. I jogged indoors, outdoors, got through a minor ankle issue, and tried an intense elliptical workout. JENN: Ankle okay now? MOON: It’s getting there. I honestly don’t know what I did to offend it.

I’m kinda bummed...
