Kinda scary.


Hurricane Hermine


Back from Glacier after a five-hour delay and flew through Hurricane Hermine. The flight was incredibly smooth considering. Caught a second wind and unpacked before bed.

Late night arrival and running on half the normal sleep (only 4 hours), i find myself in a haze of slow moving and even slower thinking.

i don’t like it, but know it sometimes happens.

Reminded why i avoid it all costs.

For 15 years in Disney Resort Operations, it happened every week. The next 15 years at Disney Institute it happened much less often – maybe four (versus 50) times a year.

There’s the Disney pixie dust people outside the organization focus on, and then there’s the reality only a Cast Member can know.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
