Crew Member Spotlight
Section covered: Lounges, Meets &
Location: Northern California
Home park: Disneyland, Anaheim, California
Favortie attractions: Pirates of the Caribbean,
for short) lives with her family of people and pets in
a cozy house, which is situated at the wrong end of California
for frequenting Disneyland as often as she would like.
In her younger days she danced a lot -- ballet, tap, tumbling,
and jazz. Ballet is still her favorite thing to do. She
also enjoys reading, embroidery, taking pictures, listening
to music, and watching movies. The music and films of
Charlie Chaplin are adored by Deebs and her two children
and are kept in heavy rotation both at home and on the
iPod. A favorite Disneyland memory for Deebs is finishing
with her partners among the top ten teams in MiceChat's
Gumball Rally 2. Without practice and essentially without
a game plan, achieving anything above last place seems
a satisfactory result on which to retire. Typically, if
she is not reading threads on MiceChat, Deebs can be found
at the barre (ballet) or purposely meandering in the aisles
of the downtown library. She loves hanging out with friends,
burning incense, drinking tea through a straw, the smell
of old books, and the musty scent inside the Pirates of
the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland.

MiceChatter in Southern California reports on the Earthquakes
centered in Lennox and Hawthorne, California.
