dead men tell no tales...

...and drink no wine, and are therefore no good at parties

I had an epiphany in the shower...

two, actually... the first had to do with a tagline for my company. Actually, I think I dreamed it and then remembered it in the shower. Anyway, the one I wanted to mention is this: I'm gonna write a book. The tentative title is Never Too Old: A Twentysomething's Guide to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and the Disney Cruise Line. Yes, the subtitle is long, but informative. Drawing on my own recent experiences (in my 20s, I believe I've had five trips to Disneyland, 3 to Disney World (planning a fourth), and 1 stint on the Cruise Line) and the wealth of researchabled information available out there, I'm going to write a travel guide to the American Disney offerings, geared at twentysomethings... whether they be solo fliers, young couples, young parents, or there with their own parents/families... Figure I'll work out an outline first, start writing first drafts of basics (introduction, theme park guides), use the next few months of planning my own trip to help write some of the Planning sections, use the trip Heather and I are taking to WDW in December to flesh things out, try to make it to Disneyland once in the next twelve months, and finish it up. Can a first edition of a travel guide be written in a year? It better be able to... shit changes fast enough to make a longer turnaround in danger of becoming obsolete before anyone reads it. Anyway, it's a thought. I hope I can stay focused on this. [ Listened to: Beck - Girl, Beck - Ghettochip Malfunction, Beck - Debra ] UPDATE: First-draft outline for "Never Too Old": CLICKY
