Ugh. Its sometimes so hard being a fan of Disneyland. Please excuse me while I vent a little.
OK. I work at a small company and we do 3D Graphics in the Entertainment Industry. Apperantly everyone in the indstry has been screwed by Disney at some point or another, so EVERYONE at my work HATES Disney.... I mean hates!!! Every time the word Disney comes up, I must endure about 1/2 of pure Disney bashing. I have hidden the fact I have an AP from most of my co-workers, and never can tell them about my trips to Disneyland. You think thats bad? It gets worse.
Now my wife is in on it.. So I tell her that I want to go too Disneyland this Sunday and she snaps with "Didnt you JUST go?". Ya, about a month ago. More then a month ago. During the SM soft opening! Then she starts telling me how her co-workers make fun of her because I go too Disneyland "every week"? No. The most I have gone was every other week, and it was her asking to go! So I say that im trying to get my money's worth out of my AP and she bust's out "Well you only need to go 4 times to do that, and you have been 10 times!!!". My reply to that is "What would YOU want to do given the option? Go to Disneyland on Sunday, or sit on your azz all day long Sunday?". I thought I had her, but she picked sitting around.... Im not TOTALLY bummed, had a nice little date planned tonight, and this was a bad way to start it off. I already had a bad week at work and was looking forward to winding down this weekend and capping it off with a little fun Sunday. Now its tainted.
I think I will still go for the meet. I love Disneyland. Not as much as many of you, but I now consider it a small hobby. But man I get so much grief from it. Does ANYONE have this sort of situation? I know many people dont understand our facination, but I dont understand how people would rather do nothing, then spend a day in a butiful happy place filled with fun rides an fun people.
I need a hug....
