equal parts writing and blushing

I took this screenshot to show you guys my latest story about this incredible start-up called Try that lets you, essentially, order things online without paying for them (IT'S REAL COOL), but I got a bit distracted by the humiliating ads the internet is now feeding directly to me. Like, oh you know, Orbitz's rates for Disneyland hotels because I am so far sucked into the Disney bubble that I cannot get out no matter what I do — especially when what I do is stay up 'til 1am researching hotel prices in Anaheim because I gotta get there, like, stat. Basically, even the bots know I'm in too deep.

But, robots be damned! Use your human eyes to check out my latest instead, over on Racked.

Say Shang-hai To This Basically Becoming A Walt Disney Blog

Welp, today marks the day when I need to begin convincing you that I am not just two human children stacked on each others shoulders inside a large fur coat pretending to be an adult woman, because I've officially written *two* Disney stories in *three days time*. That's, uh, pretty major if you ask me, and only a sign of times to come because I plan on writing a lot moore. Oh, sorry, more — Ms. Taylor said I need to work on my o's. I mean...my...editor. Definitely my editor! Not a teacher person!

Some people spend their summer weekends poolside, catching up on articles in the Times that they'll wind up referencing days later. Others board a bus for the Hamptons and drink watermelon-tequila concoctions until the Sunday night sun sets.

But little old me? Well, this past weekend, I sat in a library, crouched over a laptop for hours on end, monitoring Twitter feeds and watching choppy, few-and-far-between livestreams from the back rows of panels happening at Disney's fan conference D23 Expo in Anaheim.

As you've probably heard, lots of stuff went down, but with so, so, so many things announced, you probably missed at least one. Like, the Toy Story slinky dog rollercoaster, or how the bioluminescent Pandora land in Florida is going to be the most incredible thing you've likely ever seen with human eyes.

But, thankfully, that research weekend paid off, because now you can get a glimpse at everything that went down without having to participate in cosplay or wait in never-ending lines. (Isn't the internet grand?)

Watch Me (try to) Nae Nae

Have you ever done a dance exercise class and foolishly thought, "Hey, maybe I could do this for real!"? Well, I set out to prove that theory right — or, *gulp*, wrong.

Come live vicariously through my gangly, uncoordinated self as I visit three of the top dance studios in the USA for Racked and try not to (literally) trip over my own feet! Just another day, another near-humiliating thing I do in the name of work.

Read the goods over on Racked.
