I did not move into the Haunted Mansion. Not for lack of trying, tho', because I went on that ride TWENTY TIMES IN FIVE DAYS. Yes, seriously, and that's a new record for me.

I went on other rides, too. Pirates, Peter Pan, Mr. Toad, the teacups (wheee! spinny!), Alice's Adventures, the carousel, the Tiki Room, the Jungle Cruise, Monsters Inc., ... I just went on the Mansion the most. Because it is my spiritual home.

I also went to the Bats Day Black Market, which was lovely, and saw a bunch of my loved ones who live in CA. I miss everyone already.

In case anyone didn't see the photos and wants to, everything got posted to my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gothiccharmschool/

Now I catch up on work for two days, then head off to PDX for the Vampire Masquerade Ball.

Goth Upkeep has been done (including a gel manicure).

Travel info and park passes have been printed.

The Very Large Suitcase is packed. (Multiple fluffy skirts and lace dresses, bloomers, a parasol, and a hatbox holding TWO epic gothy sunhats. Look, if I could have steamer trunks and a valet to travel with, I WOULD.)

The carry-on is packed, except for the things that go in last-minute. Meds, makeup, phone charger, Merricat Bunny.


Why yes, I may be a little giddy about this.

Why yes, I have pretty much planned my outfit for the actual day of Bats Day (the Sunday), and have almost completely planned the rest of my wardrobe for the rest of trip.

I'm trying to concentrate on other things that need to be done (oh, work stuff, writing a new Gothic Charm School post, finalizing details about Vampire Ball and working on one of the accessories I'm going to be wearing at that), but OMG DISNEYLAND.

... in many ways, I am a very simple creature. Give me vampire books, decorative boys in eyeliner, and repeated trips through the Haunted Mansion, and I am entirely happy.

Thank you to Amy, Cass, and Plei for being super-fast betas on this one!

(Carlee, the Noxenlux Chapeau review will be the next one. ::grin::)


In other news, I slept poorly last night, but had dreams of being at Disneyland. ::sigh:: My spiritual home, it calls to me. Not that I am going there this year. We have other travel plans (yay!), and the Stroppy One has requested that we not set foot in a Disney property for a while, as the Kingdom of the Mouse is not his spiritual home. I respect that. But that doesn't mean that I don't miss Disneyland.
