Lileks Does Disney World

I'd never heard of James Lileks before, but was referred to this Minnesotan journalist/blogger's first entry on his series about visiting Disney World with his family.

Who hasn't been to Disney World? Who couldn't relate to this? Lileks has a nice, sardonic writing style, but this sequence convinced me to add James Lileks to me blog list:

"The breakfast? The best hotel breakfast ever. They don’t take your order. There’s no point in taking your order, because they know what you want so they might as well bring it. You get a big plate of eggs, bacon, potatoes and sausages, plus tiny Belgian waffles shaped like you-know-who. This is what it means to be an American: pouring syrup on Mickey’s head and eating him. It’s secular communion. And it’s delicious!"

Good stuff.
