Why is it everyone seems to be only focusing on Jennifer Lawrence tripping when she went to receive her Oscar??????? Why are we not focusing on how beautiful she looked, or the fact that about a year ago no one knew who she was and now she has achieved so much in life!!!!! Let’s focus on the good people achieve instead of the little trips and fumbles we experience!
So the other day I was at Disneyland with some friends. It wasn’t terribly warm out and I was wearing jean shorts but of course everyone, but me, wanted to go on Grizzly River Run. (For those of you that don’t know GRR is a water rapid ride where you get wet). Now I’d been on the ride before and had always done a pretty good job of not getting terrribly soaked. However, this time our entire boat got drenched! As we squished and squashed our way dripping out of the boat my wettest friend and I had a brillant idea. Why not go in the bathroom and use the hand dryers to dry our pants! So we sloshed and squished our way to the condor flatts bathroom only to discover they only had paper towels. (Now normally i hate hand dryers. They’re loud and they take too long to dry your hands. But of course with my luck the day I go looking for a hand dryer they are MIA). So we laughed it off and decided to go to the bathroom on Hollywood blvd. Unfortunatly that bathroom also had no hand dryers. Then we decided BUGS LAND! of course it’s eco friendly atomasphere must mean they have hand dryers instead of paper towels! But oh no, once again hand dryerless. At this point I was dripping with frustration…literally. My friend suggested we ask a cast member, but I said give me one last chance. Cars Land is brand new. If that bathroom doesn’t have any then the entire park doesn’t. So we sloshed over to cars land and before we were even in the bathroom we could hear the hand dryers! We practically ran in the bathroom we were so excited only to discover it’s one of those new highly effecient ones where you slide your hands in and out. With this style there was no way we could stick our butts under the dryer. My friend insisted on stripping down right in the bathroom to dry her pants but there were too many families for that. So instead I had the brilliant idea that person A could stand in a bathroom stall and hand Person B their pants. Person B would dry them then return them to person A and we would switch. This seamed like a great idea at the time. Person B could just stick the pants in the dryer and pull them out and the air would flow over them drying the pants! It was fool proof. The only problem was that just having the pants in the dryer didn’t set off the motion detector to turn on the dryer. Instead we had to have our hands in the dryer the whole time with the pants. While recieving very strange looks from parents, children, and recieving 3rd degree burns on our hands. Oh yeah, and the drying didn’t really work. So we walked around in wet pants all day instead of drenched pants.
Things we learned today:
1. Avoid Grizzly River Run at all costs
2. Condor Flats, Hollywood Blvd, and Bugs Land DO NOT have hand dryers (Other bathrooms to be examined at a later date)
3. Cars Land has hand dryers, but not the old fashion kind.
4. California Adventure is not as eco friendly as one would assume.
5. Holding your hands under a hand dryer for an extended amount of time is quite painful.
6. Hand Dryers do not work as pant dryers.
