Stuff that's not Disney/Site related
If you have any tweens or just enjoy young adult fiction I recently discovered Rebecca Stead. She normally writes in the first person as a 12-13 year old kid and the stories are funny, endearing and light mysteries. Try "When You Reach Me" and then "Goodbye Stranger" for a couple especially good reads.
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.
