Since most of my Listmas topics revolve around gaming, a topic largely reserved for Virtual Bastion, I sometimes have a bit of trouble thinking up Listmas topics to discuss here on my own, personal blog. Scratching my head and thinking long and hard, I thought it might be fun to list the amusement parks I’ve visited over the years. Because why not? So, in no particular order… Continue reading Listmas 2019: Amusement Parks I’ve Visited
For my final Listmas post, though Christmas itself has passed, I’d like to write about the Duck’s bucket list. I haven’t written a bucket list since 2013, and…my goals have certainly changed a lot.

Heck, even the 999 resident ghosts are specifically described as “happy haunts”, proving that Disney is indeed a joyous place for the living and the dead!
But nay, my friends, I speak the truth. There was a time when the Disney Parks were a very unhappy place for this particular Duck.
