Re: hemming – story of my life. I have to tack on an extra $8 to everypair of pants I buy because they will always have to be tailored nomatter what length I order (my inseam is something like 27").Ridiculous. (On a similar note, do you know how to shorten pants butstill keep the original hem? ‘S what my tailor does.)

OH GEEZ. Yes. Everything I own is way too long. This is why I stopped wearing pants. Except now I work with small children and pants are helpful.

And I can, on certain styles. It’s just tedious. Usually I just turn and machine-stitch, for yea and verily, I am lazy.

Fan fiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don’t do it for money. That’s not what it’s about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They’re fans, but they’re not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.

Hey! I know you’re probably getting sick of all the Disney CollegeProgram questions, but I’m going to be doing the phone interview nextweek and I don’t know anybody who’s done the program :) Do you have anytips? Pretty much from what I’ve seen, I have to smile a lot..

Yes! Definitely smile a lot. And speak as clearly as you can. You’ll be nervous, but try. 🙂

And if you know what job you want, don’t be afraid to tell them. Disney job placement is kind of a crapshoot, and if you don’t know what you want, you’ll probably end up merchandise or quick service, and if that’s not what you want, you’ll be sad. So don’t be afraid to speak up! Tell them you want Magic Kingdom attractions, or Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boutique, or whatever, and if you can, tell them why.

But yeah! Good luck, Disney anon! May pixie dust shower down upon you! 😀

If you made a DCP tumblr, I would totally follow it. And ask lots ofobnoxious questions, like "OH DEAR GOD, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO ASK MEABOUT?" The only thing I remember anyone telling me about the phoneinterview is to make sure you smile, because Disney can *hear* yoursmile. Also, never say you want Quick-service, or you will 100% end upbeing Quick-service.

So yeah…me and my friend Tara and my sister Lindsay are all former CPs.

I think we need to start a blog where we can answer all Disney College Program related questions and stuff. And tell stories about our experiences. And it would be awesome.

But yeah! Smile during your interview, even if it’s just on the phone. And if they ask you where you want to work, tell them where and why you want to work there. For my first interview, the other girl interviewing was just like “oh, yeah, I’ll work anywhere, I guess…” and I said “I want to work the Great Movie Ride,” and then told the recruiter the story about my first time riding it as a little girl.

I got GMR. The other girl got quick service at Port Orleans.

online shopping, how do I love thee? let me count the ways.

I love thy ease of selection.

I love thy lack of pushy salespeople.

I love thy gift of parking it on my couch instead of driving all over town.

I love wearing mine pajamas whilst perusing.

I love thy Labor Day promo codes.

I just bought three pairs of pants, three skirts, three tops, five skivvies, and a pair of shoes for roughly $200.

Part of me is mad that I have to spend so much money on nice sensible teachery clothes instead of fun exciting clothes.

But part of me is still going “WHEE I LOVE SHOPPING THIS IS FUN!!!1!1!!”
