State Of The Union Address, Where By Union I Mean This Blog

Hello, humans! I hope you don’t mind if we take a brief moment to talk a bit of blog shop. Since Fairest Run Of All transitioned from Blogger to WordPress last month, there have been a LOT of changes. Some you almost certainly noticed (especially the part where it was down for a week and a half ūü§™), some you probably didn’t. In either case, let me bring you up to speed. A lot of FROA ported over to the new platform without a hitch – and a lot of it didn’t. Yay! Some notable hiccups included broken links,...

Mini Haul From Basin: Like Buying Shampoo In A Barrel

Are we done talking about my May WDW trip? Certainly not! For example, I promised you a detailed look at Basin in Disney Springs. I know. It’s been weighing on your mind. I get it. To make it up to you, I’ve included a photo of myself in the shower in this post. You’re welcome! WHAT’S BASIN, ANYWAY? You know the store Lush, that has handmade soaps and cosmetics? It’s kinda like that, only cheaper and minus the cosmetics. (I think. I know they do lip balms but I believe that’s it?) They have hand-cut bath soaps in fun...

A New/Old Splash Mountain Souvenir

Splash Mountain has been in the (Disney) news this week, since more was revealed about the planned Princess & The Frog retheme. I’ve gone on record as being in favor and I stand by what I said… but I also stand by what I said, which I that I’ll miss Splash Mountain when it’s gone. I’ve posted about old Splash Mountain shirt before, when there was a run on Splash Mountain’s gift shop. You remember? Opportunistic types were buying up enormous bags of Splash souvenirs to be sold online in a nostalgic frenzy. I can’t abide enormous eBay markups,...

In Which FROA Is Fixed/Wine & Dine Is On

Hello humans! Welcome back to the new, hopefully improved The Fairest Run Of All! My apologies for the abrupt and lengthy service interruption these last couple weeks; I finally got around to transferring from antiquated Blogger to fancypants WordPress, and the process was simultaneously slower and faster than I expected. The good news is, with the exception of some cosmetic/design/organizational elements I’m still refining, FROA is back and the content starts a-flowin’ again! Check back soon for more of the ravings of a Disney madwoman. It’s not always edifying, but I like to think we have fun. And speaking...

A Transitional Interlude

Hey guys – it’s been a bit since I’ve posted. I don’t mean to alarm you if you hadn’t already noticed, but things are… weird. You know, what with the pandemic and racism and riots and police brutality and political incompetence and whatever else. I’m not usually one to broadcast my political views, and on some channels such as Facebook I haven’t made any statements simply because I don’t historically do so; starting to use some platforms now feels uncomfortably disingenuous. But I talk a lot on Twitter¬†and I talk a lot here, and I¬†want to be clear: Black...
