Actual True Update

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Thank you to everyone who has written to say that they miss this blog.

I am currently unable to maintain my writing schedule because an old injury was significantly aggrivated by — you’re going to love the irony here — an attraction at DCA. There was no indication that the attraction could aggrivate my condition so the injury was unexpected, and at the moment I can’t type for long periods of time so I have to save my typing capacity for my day job. I’ve been concentrating my online time on, as that lets me exercise my sense of humor (such as it is) without doing any typing.

I apologize for not posting about this sooner. Because my injury occurred at DCA, I kind of wanted to keep it quiet and give Disney a chance to change their signage so that others will not be injured as I was. I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. After sending a note to Disney, I received an e-mail asking me to contact them so we could discuss the situation further. Since then, they have not replied to my e-mails or returned my phone messages. To say the least, I am disappointed. I am a massive Disney fan and really hoped that they would care about my situation more than this. I haven’t even visited the parks since this occurred (my annual pass is getting all dusty), since I just don’t feel right going there while this is hanging over my head.

But enough whining. My condition is improving, and I hope to be back in some capacity near the end of this month. In the meantime, if any of you are visiting a Disney property and have the chance to take some pictures (of Halloween decorations, characters, buildings, inside attractions — anything, really) I’d appreciate your e-mailing them to me at liar (at) so that I might try to have some fun with them in coming months.

Thank you all for understanding and for all the nice e-mails!
