Semi-fail of a day!!!

So, my mom apparently hurt her neck yesterday or something, I don't even know. As such, she wasn't able to make me my traditional 'I get this once a week and I LOVE IT!' breakfast. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not 'upset' that I didn't get my breakfast, when she's in legit (undrinking related) pain, but I do love that breakfast, so not getting it was a fail.

Today is my cousin's 30th birthday. So I went over there to see her, say hi, eat cake (not chocolate, woohoo!) and talk to my other cousin. The one who I'm planning a Disneyland trip in March with.

That trip has now been pushed back. She is going to Germany in March, so she'll probably go over the weekend in April. Now, this is 50-50 for me. On the one hand it means I can save more money, and take less days off. Why am I taking less days off? Because she's going over the weekend! THE WEEKEND! Hotel fees... HOTEL FEES! I need to check that. So, let's say, for the sake of argument, that my cousin is going the weekend after her season pass expires. That would be April 11-14th. Staying at the Paradise Pier hotel by myself (because they aren't keen on spending 600 dollars for a hotel room... understandable, but I'll be damned if I don't do Disneyland and stay at a hotel there ONCE!) would be... (an aside: I seriously hate the Disneyland.com website, because they play that annoying ass video EVERY DAMNED TIME. I've seen it enough, okay!) 843 dollars... hmm... cheap. I like this. STILL! Waiting. Blah. That's also for 2 nights, which I think is the amount of time we'll stay.

Then, I call my friend, and she tells me that my other friend is leaving her husband as we were on the phone. This doesn't surprise me. I love my friend, but I never once thought that they would stay together. Is that wrong of me? I didn't *want* them to fail, but I had little faith. So, that's fail, too.

But here's the biggest fail: My grandma's blackmailing me. No, really, she is. I haven't talked to my aunt in over a year. And I'm okay with that, because my aunt is a judgmental holier than thou woman who swears up and down that I need to be angelic to meet her standards, but my cousins (she has no children, so it's not like she's favoring her kids over me) can basically do anything short of manslaughter and they're good to go. But my grandmother was like 'one of these Saturday's I'm going to pick you up with someone and we're going to eat dinner.' And I said 'wait, you mean Nina, don't you?' And then she went into this whole spiel about how she was getting old and she didn't want to die with the two of us not talking to each other and how it was her fault that we're not talking (it's not)... and I REALLY don't want to see my aunt... but it's my grandmother, and she's the most important person in my life, and how can I say no to that?

She might come over today to give my mom some ointment for her neck. I don't know. But I'm staying put here either way, because if she does come and I'm not here I don't want her to think that I'm avoiding her, since that's not the case at all.

See? Fails all around.

Have you looked on Expedia for hotel prices? It's coming up at $345.00 a night. O_O. But considering you are going to be at the park 99.999999999% of the time, is it really worth staying at that hotel for that price? O_o.

Yes! Yes it is!!! If you stay at the park hotels you can get your purchases shipped to your room so that you don't have to carry them around. And believe me, I buy a LOT of crap.

It's a dream to stay at one of the Disneyland hotels, it really is. And this is one of the only chances I'm going to get.

Besides, they have Soapnet at the Disneyland hotels. Better than MTVTres!

I'm sure they'd still have the People's Court.
