“Hey! I've got a question for those who know me: Do you think I radiate some kind of... "I'm Evil" vibe or "I will consume your soul"? You know, the kind of thing that a small child might pick up on?

I ask the question because I'm at Disney, and there are lots of small children running around, and several times today, some child has been bouncing along happily, come closer to me, suddenly stopped bouncing along happily, and then kind of... slinked by, basically fearfully. Like... suddenly <i>shut down</i> and did the "Oh my God, that thing will kill me." Just happened a few minutes ago. Boy was literally skipping along, he got within a few feet of me, saw me, suddenly stopped skipping and kind of shuffle-walked past me, turning his head and keeping his eyes on me the whole time - as if he thought that if he took his eyes off me, I would jump out and eat him.

I don't <i>feel</i> especially ogreish today, I'm actually smiling and enjoying myself. But I feel like there's some kind of... <i>field</i> radiating from me, that when small children penetrate it, they suddenly become fearful. They sense my true nature or something. I'm not especially displeased by this, actually, I'm more amused by it. And I just thought I'd share, because... I got nothing better to do.

Anyway, I'm going to go wander around a little bit, enjoy myself some more. Bye!”

I wish I'd met you in person so I could give you my opinion. G used to wear a lot of black and one day while walking through a mall, a kid looked at him, pointed and said "Look Mommy, a burglar!"

Which park were you in? Also as I'm sure you are aware: Everything Spits On You At Disney!

Today it was Disney Hollywood and EPCOT, happened at both parks.

I have no idea what you mean about the spitting though.

The Muppet ride spits at you, Mickey's Philharmagic spits at you, Drew Carey's soundstage show spits at you, Stitch's Great Escape spits on you, The Little Mermaid theater thing (Rachel made me do it, I swear) at Hollywood Studios spits water at you... I can't remember the rest of the list but we were sprayed with water at least twice a day while we were down there by rides we thought had no business spitting at us.

You forgot to switch off your BOFH field.

They're afraid of your evil genius!!!! Muhahahahaha! ;-)

Ironically we're heading to AAA today to price out staying at one of the All-Stars around late-Sept, early-Oct.

You do have a presence about you! That time we had dinner, there was a little girl sitting behind you that was staring at you the entire time you talked with that look of awe - but it wasn't a frightened look.


Take it as a compliment, in a sea full of people at Disney, you aren't blending in like just some other herded cow. You are YOU.

Little kids get scared by things that are WAY taller than themselves. You qualify. :-)

Have fun!!!

I kind of like the 'fear me' field. It's probably the third most fun aura to give off, after the 'buy me a beer' field or the 'take off all of your clothes, jump on me, and stick your large breasts in my face' field.

The most useful one, although less fun than any of the above, is the "pay no attention to me, I'm supposed to be here" field. Makes you feel like Chevy Chase in the Fletch movies, and keeps you from getting arrested even when you're bein' a bad dude.

No. You're just really big. It's scary in the same way small animals are scared by humans.

I cried when my aunt gave me a life sized Raggedy Anne doll when I was 4.
