Lauren in the Kitchen. (Brooklyn, NY)

My first attempt at a photoshoot. Looking back on it, I had no idea what I was doing and cut off the top of her head in most of the photos. But I do like this one and if that microwave wasn’t taking up the attention and it was lit properly, it’d be rather nice!

Traditional Quadrant. (Anaheim, CA)

These are three of the most important people in my life on the day that we kind of became Disney Cast Members and something of a family. You may know them as @renridinghood, @tacgnol_ and #shitmydansays but I know them as short girl, dumb girl, and guy that nearly burned down my apartment multiple times and threw out my frozen peas.

Enter Mat. (Anaheim, CA)

This was my Enter Key doormat that would get stolen often. I often had to go and intimidate people to get it back. It got really real after a while.

Lauren and Jingles. (Anaheim, CA)

This is Lauren on King Arthur Carousel at Disneyland Park. The cool thing about this: The horse she’s on is named Jingles and was dedicated to Julie Andrews on the 50th Anniversary of the Disneyland Resort. They used her favorite colors, and little symbols that represent her role in Mary Poppins and such. It’s a really cool tribute and it’s usually a race to get to this horse so we’re lucky we got to ride it at least once!

Here’s a picture that I didn’t take of Julie Andrews and Marty Sklar (Imagineering Legend) looking at it.

Wii Boxing Champion. (Brooklyn, NY)

When I first got the Wii, there was some pretty intense competition between Jimmy and Cathy on who could outbox the other. I think Jimmy’s shock and dismay says he lost.

The Walt Disney Studios. (Burbank, CA)

B, Bora, Lauren and I went to see the documentary Waking Sleeping Beauty. It was only playing in Burbank so we drove up to see it. It immediately became one of my favorite movies of all time. Afterwards instead of driving us home, B surprised us by driving us straight over to the studios, which was the main subject of the entire documentary we just watched. It was closed, of course, but even standing outside is a moment I won’t soon forget.

Cookie Monster & Syl’s Adventure (Brooklyn, NY)

Cookie Monster and Sylwia waving from a bus. The context is largely unknown, other than we saw a guy running in a really funny manner to blockbuster that day.

Red is Radical. (New York, NY) Taken by Regina F.

My mom and I went to a taping of The Today Show ‘cause they were trying to break some record for most redheads in one area on St. Pat’s or something. I got a free t-shirt, it was awesome. I found this sign on the ground after everyone left. I love how it looks like I’m protesting something.

Klaus. (New York, NY)

This was taken at The Reggie Show at the Knitting Factory. First there was a pantomime “Trapped in the Closet” act. Fluxuation (English techno pop) opened. Then a band called Reggie & The Full Effect played. Common Denominator (Finnish death metal, pictured) closed. Here’s the thing: They’re all the same guy/band. James Dewees, ladies and gentlefolk.

Antoleo’s First Dishwashing Experience.

My former roomate’s first time using a dishwasher. He washed some drinking glasses, a bowl and a RED SOLO CUP….while leaving all my dishes in the sink. Sigh.

Corey Warning. (New York, NY)

The Graduate are a fun live band. This performance was at Irving Plaza, I believe. I gave the guitarist Ludo’s CD which had not yet come out and about 2 years later they toured together. Coincidence? I think not. (Ignore the fact that they had toured together previously.)

Rain & Rooftops (New York, NY)

There’s a really nice spot in Times Square that most people don’t really know about/take advantage of. At the AMC movie theater, on the top floor there’s a little balcony rooftop that (I think) people are allowed to go out on. It’s breathtaking to see the city from that height.
