The Grid opened this morning!
What's The Grid? It's the brand new convenience store they built inside my apartment complex. Very nice. There was a grand opening, with the boss and everything, so 2 of my roommates and I went to check it out.
I was all dressed up because I had class to go to. Exploring Guest Service was very fun that day, as always. After I came home, ate some lunch, got ready for work and headed out to make the magic from 3:30 to 10:15. It was a long day, but not a bad one.
I learned the night before that my one true love, Vincent D'Onofrio, was in the parks. He had been in the Animal Kingdom and eaten at Chef Mickey's the night before.

Now I had heard people talk about meeting famous people while working at Disney World. It makes sense that a lot of famous people come here for their own fun vacations. And when I thought about it I thought to myself that the only famous person I'd really be overly excited to meet would be my favorite actor (and one true love) Vincent D'Onofrio. But what were the chances he'd visit during the short 15 weeks I'd be working here?
So all day I was on the lookout! Although honestly, I was a bit concerned that if I saw that glorious man I might just pass out right where I stood. I was willing to risk it. I even asked all my coworkers to keep an eye out for me. For the first part of the day I was a little obsessed. Later I was distracted by work and didn't think about it every 5 minutes. Sadly I never saw him. Maybe it was for the best. I would have been very embarrassed if they had to call the ambulance for me at the back exit of Epcot.
