My Disney dorkdom has reached new levels. Just when I thought I couldn’t get any geekier, I have found a way; a few, actually.
First, I was going through a typical day at work when I got a call from my husband. “Teri,” he asks, “Did you contribute to a Disney guide?”
My reply (demonstrating my typical on-the-ball response time and quick wit) was something along the lines of, “Huh?”
Ray continues, “I was doing a search for your blog and Googled ‘Teri Sizemore’ and ‘Disney’, and I got a link to Amazon. It says you’re listed in the 2011 Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.” I immediately flew out of my office and into my bathroom (I had been reading my copy of The Guide in the tub the night before. Don’t laugh; you know you do it, too.) Sure enough, on page 11 I am given credit as a fact-checker. I felt so cool! I immediately posted about it to Facebook, and took my copy to Pippin rehearsal that night to show off to all of my friends. I called my aunt, my mother, my hairdresser, my neighbors, my daughter’s principal; what do you mean I got carried away?
The second one I can’t claim a lot of responsibility for, but I love it all the same. For Christmas, my husband made me a couple of t-shirts to wear to Walt Disney World promoting my blog:
Am I a big enough Disney dork to wear my own merchandise to the parks? Don’t be silly; of course I am!
And naturally, my house was decked out in its typical Disney decorations for the holidays; my Mickey topiary in the front yard was sporting a Santa hat, I had a Mickey Christmas wreath on my front door, Disney stockings hanging from Disney stocking holders on the mantle, and lots of beautiful Disney ornaments on my tree. And to top it all off, my husband even gave me the new Disney cookbook as a present as well. Now I only have to decide which of the recipes I’m making for dinner tonight…
