Happiest Puke on Earth

We just got back from Disney World and boy is my wallet tired. I want to send a big shout out and fist bump to my buddy Randy and his lady Brecken, who made the trip possible. Brecken worked at Disney over the summer and thus had the ability to get us all into the parks free for 3 days AND half off our hotel room. Without that amazing deal we would have had to take out a second mortgage just to buy lunch in the parks.

Our trip was framed by vomit. The night before we left Chewy threw up on the couch, and our last day in the parks we witnessed no less than 5 throw up related events. As we pulled into the parking lot of the Animal Kingdom park, and walked toward the entrance, there was a little Asian girl puking on the sidewalk. She hadn't even made it to the park yet. I'm was affraid her head might explode if she actually got inside. On our way to the first ride we had to avoid stepping in a large pile of vomit waiting to be saw dusted. At lunch a little girl was hurling all over her table. The small pieces of her breakfast that now stained the front of pink T-shirt that read "princess" detracted slightly from her cuteness. Later in the day we had to avoid slipping in yet another large puddle of regurgitated park food. Finally, after a long day of park hopping, we were walking the last stretch of road to our hotel room, when we heard a child behind us start coughing, followed by the unmistakable sound of a stomach angrily tossing it's contents onto the ground. It's a Small Hurl After All.

We had tons of fun and I can't wait to go back.

I started tinkering around with the intro to the show I'm pitching. I wanted to do an animated animatic, which is just a storyboard with very limited movement. I did the very first shot, and am waiting on artwork for the rest, but I was so excited I just threw some words up where the storyboard panels will go. It ain't much, but it makes me smile:
