Our life-sentence

A while ago, the writer's block question was something about "What six-word sentence would you use to describe your life? How often would your 'life-sentence' change?" We didn't really think about it too much until more_dragoncelt posted her life-sentence, and then pixiepilot commented with her life-sentence, and then chibidrunksanzo commented with her life sentence. That's when Athena said, "I think my life-sentence would be, 'When are we going to Disneyland?'"

I had to agree that that would probably be mine, too. It would change whenever we were at Disneyland, of course, but then it would change back once we left. There are only two instances that would change it more permanently: 1) We move to Japan, and the sentence would then be "When are we going to Disneysea?" 2) We somehow manage our life-long dream of actually living at Disneyland. We have no idea what it would be then. Of course, there's the small possibility we could move to the east coast or something, and then it would probably be "When are we going to Disney World?", but that would technically be seven words, unless it changes to six if we make "when are" into a contraction. Or something.

But anyway, in the spirit of our life-sentence, we have more pictures!

We were still in Frontierland! We meant to go see the reindeer and get more photographic evidence of their existence, but the petting zoo was wasn't open yet when we got there, and we kept getting too distracted to go back.

While I find this place to be a little creepy at night sometimes, it's one of my favorite scenes in the park.

Lots of waterfalls at Disneyland!

Hidden in the trees, you can see what used to be the Fantasyland boarding area for the Sky Way. *sigh* I miss that ride.

I don't remember why I took this picture. Athena says, "It's Dumbo."

This is when I was noticing all the neat little wind vanes each of the Fantasyland attractions had, so I just kept taking random-looking pictures.

Athena tried to fix the lighting, but to no avail. That's Leia there in the middle (which I'm only telling you because we have her permission to post pictures of her).

Looks like we didn't get very good lighting for it, but we wanted a picture of the Disney family crest above the entrance to Sleeping Beauty's Castle.

In Southern California, snow is so rare that they're actually excited to pretend they have it. But the castle really does look nice.

When they remodeled Tomorrowland back in like 1998 or something, one of the things they really wanted to do was use all edible plants. Or at least plants that bore edible fruit.

We're still highly amused at the idea of Terence and his harem.

This guy was standing in the picture when I wanted to get the decorations on the replica Golden Gate Bridge in California Adventure.

So Han took the camera and directed him.
We haven't posted his name because we didn't get his permission (so don't guess, either), but man, no one holds up bridges like he does.

We do like our stupid puns.

This is a picture of the main mountain of California Adventure: Grizzly Peak.
Everybody seems to think it's like a wolf or something. Don't they realize that California's state animal is a grizzly bear?

I wanted a picture of the aftermath of riding Grizzly River Run. Athena says she had so many layers on that she didn't even feel it (or the sweatshirt was just that absorbent).

And finally, a picture of Grizzly River. Sort of. I'm a bad photographer. But it's a pretty area.

Tadah! We still have like a million more. Maybe someday we'll post them...

Today I'm thankful for getting to go to the back yesterday, getting to buy food yesterday, getting to accomplish two-thirds of our life-long dream of making triple chocolate milkshakes (a trip to Fresh & Easy for some chocolate milk and we'll be set), getting to work on a series that lets us get more than fifty pages done in a day (ah, it's like a breath of fresh air), and getting to pay bills today.
