The exact right type of person always seems to buy the Goofy hat with the ears [Apr. 16th, 2004|09:10 pm]

[Current Mood |tired]

trinnit and I went to Disneyland today. I had expected a mellow day, forgetting that it’s still spring break for lots of people. It was a zoo. We did manage to do Pirates of the Caribbean and Splash Mountain, but that was about it. Disneyland is less organized and clean than it used to be. They’ve got a lot of corners. Pirates still has the magic, though. What an achievement that thing is.

This was my introduction to “visiting events with a person in a wheelchair” also. As Pete said, it’s worse than regular traffic! People are strangely rude to a wheelchair. If I ever end up in one, I’m going to mount swivel Taser guns on it.

Just as we got home, the doorbell rang. It was my neighbor Vishnu. He’s my age, and we’ve known each other since early childhood. He was, as usual, drunk and high. He loudly told me several times how much he loves me, and that he needs my mind because he wants to go into business. He’s still cutting meat at a local market. The guy is still a sweetheart but he’s so very very gone. It’s a heart breaker.

And now I am getting sleepy, very sleepy.

That icon is quite evil. I only used it once so far, but it's a fine specimen :)

Re: The Shnoo

He was a really neat little kid but later on he got way into drugs and alcohol. For the last 10 years at least I've heard nothing but gibberish from him. I think he toasted his noodle.

wheelchair fun

I try to be more considerate of wheelchair people since Mack was in one. So many things you never think about as a "walking" person. He would take the bus to physical therapy and the bus drivers would be rude, mistreat him, and sometimes not stop to pick him up to avoid having to accommodate him. Add to that, we lived in Fontana where every other street had no sidewalks and the ones that did didn't have ramps, so he had to play chicken with the trucks speeding down the street. It was and eye opening experience. I feel for your friend. But I hope you guys at least got to cut in front of the line.
