What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

Well Played, Pixar April 27, 2016

Pixar has done it again. Last night, I found myself ugly crying over a cowboy dinosaur movie. I don’t even know if Good Dinosaur was actually good. But there I was, trying to put together a puzzle, finishing it, realizing three pieces were missing, Spot found a family, and boom: ugly tears.

(Be warned. There are spoilers to multiple animated movies below. All of them moments that make us ugly cry.) (more…)

A Plot to Save Pluto October 3, 2015

Here’s the thing. I love Pluto. Not Pluto the planet, Pluto the Disney dog.

If you need proof or back story on why Pluto is amazing, you can follow these links to my previous blog posts about the wonderment that is Pluto.

If you want a history of Pluto, click here. And if you want to watch a video so you have proof that Pluto is the best, click here.

All right, now here is the problem. I think I’ve just established that since his first appearance in 1930, Pluto has shown himself to be clever, loving and fun. I don’t want to start a controversy, but I firmly believe that Pluto is in fact a better role model and friend than Mickey.

Yet Mickey has theme parks! Mickey gets to be the star of the parades, and Mickey has all the merchandise.

Now I know that it is too late to dethrone the mouse. It would take a coup d’état that would leave the small world ride in ruins.

But I don’t think it’s too much to ask to want a cute Pluto t-shirt, tank top, or even a nice hat! I don’t mean one of those weird hats with the droopy ears. I want a classy baseball cap.

And as for shirts, even Maleficent had cute girly tank tops in all the Disney stores. Pluto: nothing feminine. This02_ParksBlog_DogDays_PlutoPullShirt
is the ONLY Pluto shirt they have! The only one! (more…)

 

Disney Dreams August 22, 2015

Have you ever seen the video of Kristen Bell freaking out over a sloth? Well, you should take a second to watch this video because it’s fantastic.


Point being, I just had a meltdown of Kristen Bell VS. Sloth proportions. Why? Because I am now the proud owner of a Disney annual pass! I know lots of people go to Disney all the time. I mean, I was there only six months ago. But to have the ability to beep myself into the park whenever I want. Mind blown!

Those of you who have been around here a few times know that I am obsessed with Pluto. He’s my friend, and I love him. I’m going to be working in Florida all winter, and now on my days off, I can go visit Pluto! Disney dancing lights at Christmas? I’m there! International food and wine fest? Why, yes please!

But the real meltdown came when I realized I could go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! (more…)
