Hola! La Salida es aqui! Tres! Dos! Ocho! Gracias! Un momento! These are all statements I utilized today, as 90% of the guests today did not speak English. Unfortunately, I do not know the phrase "If your AstroBlaster does not start operating right away, simply unfasten and rebuckle your seat belt, and you should be good to go!" I received about 50 blanks stares from this statement. They also did not realize I told them not to pre-load their canons about 15 times, as they were all pre-loaded. This caused their vehicles to simply stall. It was pretty funny to watch twelve of the vehicles on the "galaxy floor" of Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlaster with six of them full of Argentinian teenage girls, confused as to why they were not moving.

For some reason every teenage girl from Argentina was at Disney Quest, so that was interesting! The Chilean miners were also at Disney Quest, so I loaded two of them onto a ride, and about four of their daughters. I asked the one girl "Are you having fun today?" and she shook her head and said "no." However, she may have misunderstood me, because she didn't know what I meant by the word "eight." Anyways, the miners were in the parade at Magic Kingdom yesterday, and it was exciting to have VIPs in the building!

Today I only operated three attractions, but rotated through 5 different positions, for about 7 shift changes. I love not getting bored with what I am doing, as you all know I have a short attention span. Tomorrow I work ten hours-blah-but I am sure time will fly by. It will definitely be better than my 12 hour day from hell at Famous Dave's a couple of summers back. I seriously wanted to smoke myself with the brisket following that shift. Anyway, I am very anxious for my two days off (Wednesday and Thursday), as I have worked 7 days in a row, counting tomorrow. I work 32 hours next week...but I feel like I mentioned this already, so I won't bore you with those details again. Laura and I will be eating at The Wave at the Contemporary on Wednesday, and the Brown Derby on Thursday, and Kouzzina (Cat Cora's restaurant) on Saturday for breakfast! WOOP WOOP! I love cast discounts!

On another note, I feel like I am risking my life every time I step on a Disney cast member bus. Bus drivers- stop signs are mandatory. I also went to church this morning at 8, and went grocery shopping after that. I was the only person in the small chapel of the shrine under the age of 82, so it was a pretty lively mass. There is a Publix grocery store, which is similar to HyVee I'd say, about 8 blocks from my apartment. I stocked up on frozen meals and stuff like that, so I should be set on groceries for the next couple of weeks. Well, I am tired and need to go to bed. Goodnight all. Have a magical day!
