@PrettyNicola My friend's a comp sci person and thus not working actually at the parks, so that's a lot of the appeal. Being an imagineer sounds like a dream to me. My fantasy that involves buying this house involves being so foolishly wealthy that the property taxes are pocket change to me, but honestly I do think it would be more fun to get to try out all the hotels and parks around the world.
@PrettyNicola I feel you on that fantasy. I have a friend who just got an internship with Disney and she's going to be moving down there in January. I'm insanely jealous.
@polka dots vs stripes That was my question! (Your question a.) The alt-text said The Philosophers, which IMDB tells me is a movie coming out later this year that does in fact star Bonnie Wright, so yes!
@bgprincipessa That was my exact reaction upon starting Scandal! I love Paris. Also, season 2 needs to get on Netflix immediately.

@Bill Fostex MR. BISCUIT IS THE BEST
98 dollars and change for internet, cable, and DVR through Time Warner. I should probably buy my own modem but I'm lazy. That's the new subscriber rate which should've run out this month but they said they were extending it as a show of appreciation? I mooch off my parents' Netflix streaming account and I have Amazon Prime, but I've never actually streamed anything from them.
@muggles Exactly! Obviously I like being nice and centered in the theater, but I also don't want to sit right next to anybody (unless it's sold out and there's no choice) and I don't want to sit near overly talky people or people who text the entire time, so the freedom to get up and move is very important to me.
@faustbanana I know! I was expecting to her be some kind of evil robot and she was actually awesome! Such a wonderful twist.
Last bill was $45.32, which is a little on the high side for me. I live alone in a one bedroom apartment. Heat and water are included in the rent.
@EvanDeSimone Let me know what you find out! Drunk friend on the couch is not a permanent solution, and though they went away during the winter I'm afraid they're going to come back this summer.
