HOW TO TEST YOUR BOYFRIEND’S LOVE FT. DISNEYLAND

HOW TO TEST YOUR BOYFRIEND’S LOVE FT. DISNEYLAND

Okay, in all fairness, he must at least like me a little bit. I mean he took me, your regular ol’ Ri Bread to the happiest place on Earth. So if there was a primary test, he would have passed. Easily. And if there was a second test in existence, this would be it– yes, you can provide the ticket, but can you actually put up with me for those 24 hours? Now, that is a game changer.

The exam commences before we even enter the park…glittery Minnie Mouse ears in one hand…my classic “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” hat in the other…my indecisive self in the middle trying to pick one JUST ONE to wear. I had brought five hats. The clock flashed 7:00 A.M. & after trying to get rid of one of my choices by seeing if Garrett would take one for the team & wear it, I shoved them all into my backpack.

How to test his love? Make him walk around Disneyland. 11 miles more or less.

Take him on “It’s A Small World”… aka a very effective form of birth control.

Take him on the Winnie the Pooh ride with the stinky toddlers.

Take him to Toon Town & accidentally get caught in the line for that not-so-fast roller coaster. (Honestly… by the time we realized we were in line, it was too late to turn back)

What else is there to do?

Spend some time in the World of Disney.

By this, I mean make at least 23 laps around the store, pick a few items up, then put a few items down, walk up to the register, then take a few more laps, then wait in line at the register, & when you finally reach the front, declare: “Hmmm. I’m going to put these back & think about it. Can we come back later?”

The fact that Garrett did not absolutely loathe me after this stunt was remarkable. I was impressed, nonetheless, truly impressed.

Continue to test his love? Never choose anything. When he asks you what to do next? Smile. Look down. Rub your pointed foot along the ground & chime “I’m up for anything!”

Gets ’em every damn time.

Oh man. I give him props for putting up with me. All of this other stuff…well that was nothing compared to my sick moves on the dance floor. & when I say dance floor, I mean the entire 85 acres…& if you’ve seen me dance…YOUR EYES HAVE BEEN BLESSED. Nah. My moves are more like Medusa. Blinding. *insert cringe* I resemble a toddler who had too many fruit snacks & missed their afternoon nap. But hey, @Fortnite, don’t go stealing this trademark flailing of my limb or else we are going to find ourselves in court. Bitch! Mhhmmmm.

Ahhhh, *sigh*. ‘Tis the happiest place on Earth. ‘Tis the most sensational reason to take out a student loan and/or put your house into mortgage in order to purchase a churro. ‘Tis the place to discover if your boyfriend enjoys the real you… I mean next on the test is my morning breath & my inability to go a day without coffee, but psshhhh– fingers crossed.

& toes..they are crossed, too.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
