Talk about having too much time and money on your hands

I mean seriously, you're getting together with other people from across the country, maybe around the world, to do nothing but trade Disney-themed pins back and forth with each other? How useless* an endeavor is this? What kind of a strange person would spend his or her hard-earned money to travel to Epcot Center for a weekend and then spend the whole time trading pins?! I mean, you're in Epcot Center, for goodness sake!

Here's a question—how would you like to have been the designer who was hired to create this logo? Sure, the money was probably good, but wouldn't ithave been more than a little bit disappointing? "Sweet, I get to design a Disney logo! Oh...that's what it's for. Meh."

*To qualify the above opinion, I will disclose that I was once someone who used to collect business cards, with heavy emphasis on used to, and I realized how strange it was, immediately after a less-than-favorable article about me was published in the Oregonian.

the way people are addicted to these pins is scary. When we were at Disney this summer, it was borderline crazy!

This must be what people refer to when they talk about the underground economy.
