It is almost 10pm on Thursday the 5th of August. John and I fly out on Monday the 9th. EXCITED!!! I get to see all my friends and a lot of the extended family members I haven't seen in a while! Only downside? I'm going to be wearing a shiny white dress and will be the center of everyone's attention. Not my cup of tea, but I'll take it if it means I get to see everyone! I'm a little nervous though that I still haven't shaken this sore throat thing whatever it is. I don't have the runny/stuffy nose thing anymore which is really nice because it was just so goddamn annoying! I do have a small cough though and the sore throat from hell...I'm hoping it won't cause any problems with the airport and me getting on the plane.

And I hope whatever I have isn't strongly contageous because I really don't want to kill my father with a cold... =(

30 Days of Disney!

Day #3: Your favorite heroine

I'm not sure about this one...going back through the movies, it's difficult to say who I could name as a favourite. I think...Bianca makes me laugh the most because she's just so freaking...I dunno...oblivious? naive? something about her makes me smile, and she's so kindhearted...yet so TINY! =P I like small heroines because I be short too!

I also love Esmeralda for her strength and courage and, dude, sexy much? Lady's got sex appeal and she knows how to use it! Hot stuff!

And if we're going off and adding in tv shows, Elisa Maza from Gargoyles. Woman knows how to handle herself and the crazy things that go on in this world. Totally diggin' it.

Day #4: Your favorite prince

Favourite prince...again, I have a few. I mean seriously, in all aspects of Disney, you can't ask me to name just ONE favourite anything!! Not fair. As for the princes...

Of course, Aladdin is a no brainer. Not only does he not even start out a prince, he starts out with quite literally nothing. And then he goes on to show that you don't need power and magic to win, though a little bit helps here and there if you're going up against someone who DOES think that, and that just because you're royalty by birth, it doesn't make you special. He defeats Jafar, twice...and he manages to survive an encounter with the 40 thieves, though they're not all that fearsome in the movie... He's just awesomeness. And mad props to Steve Weinger for pulling off the character.

Additionally, Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty makes my list. The man battles a dragon for a woman he met ONCE. Awesomeness much? Going up against the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil" and "all the powers of HELL" = not so easy. The man is amazing.

And for my third favourite, I'm gonna have to go with Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid. He may seem like a pampered prince to start off with, but he's got some character strengths. Not only is he completely thrown out of his comfort zone by finding out that merpeople are real, he finds out that he was ensorced--is that the right word?--by a crazed giant octopus, and that the woman he has truly fallen for is...dun Dun DUN...a mermaid PRINCESS. And amidst all that he manages to defeat the psychotic giant octopus who has become an even bigger giant octopus, save the girl AND her father, and still keep his head on straight. Kudos.

30 Days of Harry Potter

03. What house would you be in?

An interesting theory, to say the least... Ten years ago? Probably a Hufflepuff. Work, loyalty to family, not much else in mind at the time... Five years ago? Ravenclaw. I was inquisitive and seeking knowledge about all kinds of things, mainly because the world of Harry Potter intrigued me and I wanted to know more! Latin, magic...html coding for RPG websites and stuff =P Learning was cool, and I was even maintaining thoughts about going back to school at the time...scary. A year ago? Gryffindor. Picking up my life with no idea what would happen to me? For love? =P I quit my job, said goodbye to family and friends and flew across an ocean for a man I'd met and seen in person for only two weeks.

Without a doubt, I can say the only house I would never be a part of--but oddly enough the one that intrigues me the most--is Slytherin. I've never been cunning or crafty in that Slytherin sort of way, and I've never been willing to do anything at any cost. I see Slytherins as very strategic and always thinking one step ahead of everything else...an excellent chess player. =P I suck at chess...

But today? I wouldn't be able to specify which of the other three houses I'd be in. I have traits from all of them, and at different points of any given week, one house will shine above the rest. It's what happens really...the houses are all different divisions of human characteristics...

04. Your favorite movie

No no and no. I enjoy watching all of them, but a favourite? They all really disappoint me for some reason, but that seems to be happening more and more with movies that are derived from books. Don't even get me started on the Twilight "Saga". Ugh. I guess if I had to choose a favourite it'd be the first one. Great little intro movie to a fun series.

So! In 11 days my hubby and I will be winging our way to the California coast...to get married...again. =) Does that not sound just a little funny? I'm kinda excited... I mean, as much as I whined and complained about certain aspects I'm getting excited now about the whole big white wedding thing. John and I wrote our own vows. They're short, and pretty plain as far as vows go, but they're sweet and from the heart. I'm so going to cry. =P And I'm definitely looking forward to seeing everyone. I haven't seen any of them in person since January. I need to get used to not seeing them a lot...being an ocean away will do that to a family. And the food!! I get Mexican food! Good Mexican food!!! Oh how I miss it. John says he's going to try and really taste the sauces and flavours and stuff to try and duplicate some of the restaurant food that we wouldn't otherwise be able to get recipes for. What a good man... And then who knows what else? =) But he wanted to go to San Diego again instead of travelling to other parts of California, or other states for that matter. I swear, one of these years I'ma get that boy to the east coast. He at least needs to visit a friend in New York whom he promised he would visit. And while he's doing that...I dunno... But I've a feeling that I won't be welcome while he goes, and that's okay with me because otherwise the visit would just get really awkward and uncomfortable, more on that later! Maybe.

I hope I'm not still coughing my lungs out or they're not going to let me on the plane! =(

But on to the memeage! Which I won't catch up on the days for cuz that would just clutter...I'll just hope that I keep up on them from now on! =P

30 Days of Disney!

Day #2: Your favorite princess

I would have to say Mulan, even though I don't really agree with the whole her being a princess thing, though she's officially listed on the Disney Princess line-up. She's just badass. I mean, she stays true to herself, learns a helluvalot along the way, and saves the freaking country. The movie has some great music as well. If I had to choose and official, I might choose Pocahontas... I'm really not huge on the whole Princess thing... That said, I'm despising the fact that a character voiced by Mandy Moore is going to be an official Princess eventually... *sigh* THOUGH! I am looking forward to the potential princess addition in 2012, even though she's not going to be a singing princess from what I can tell. Brave I'm counting on you!!

30 Days of Harry Potter

02. Your favorite book

Oh the books... It took me a really long time to read the books after I actually was introduced to the world of Harry Potter. In saying that, I also never read the second book all the way through until...last year? I think the book that moved me the most was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Oh good god I actually had to go look up the title because I couldn't remember what it was... =( How sad of me. That was also before she threw Harry into the whole lovey dovey gf/bf crap which I don't think was really necessary at all. hrmph.

30 DAYS OF DISNEY MEME!!!!!!!!!!

People need to get on board with Disney. And y'know what? People need to get off Princess and the Frog cuz Disney does DARK. Does anyone remember the beginnings of the Disney movies? Those things were freaking scary! Crazy witch asking for Snow White's heart in a box? Other scary witch conjuring "all the powers of hell" to try to kill Prince Phillip? BIG EFFING WHALE trying to eat Pinnochio? Or for that matter, turning the naughty kids into pack mules? Dumbo on LSD?!?! Getting Dumbo drunk??? Gunshot to Bambi's mom? And yeah, that was kind of a turning point when they stopped being really really dark...but still, Disney made movies with dark plots! Seriously...Disney has had some screwed up movies in the past, Princess and the Frog is not that bad... And really? For all the people who are whining about Disney not doing anymore classics?? IT'S HARD WHEN YOU'VE USED MOST OF THE FAIRYTALES YOUR MOVIES WERE BASED ON. Do they not realise this? All right...my rant is going to end there

That being said...Rapunzel? really...? I'm not feeling it...

Day #1: Your favorite character

Stitch!!! Crazy little freaky blue alien ("also cute and fluffy!") He's adorable and he makes the best stuffed animal in the world. I have two at the moment and am planning on expanding that collection further. =P Why is he my favourite? Absolutey no clue. He's insane and he's chaotic... He was created for a purpose. He started out knowing one thing, that he wanted to destroy...because that's what the mad scientist--ahem, evil genius--created him for. Experiment 626, the creature created for destruction, was put on trial and sentenced to be destroyed. But somewhere in the journey that he took, albeit trying to flee from death, he found himself lost. This journey that made him question what life was, what his life was, and realise that despite the fact that his purpose was one specific thing, that he didn't have to stick to the path that was chosen for him. He had a choice, he had desires, and he acted on those desires.
The yearning to belong, to have a family, to be part of something good. I dunno...his whole thing is just...awesome.

Disney Meme, etc. )

And the 30 Days of Harry Potter Meme! Because I miss it...

01. Discuss how you got into Harry Potter

I can't even completely remember, to be honest. I had been playing a text-based Tolkien MUD on-line called MUME, and it was less of the role playing and more...I don't know what. But it wasn't quite what I was looking for, and someone I knew on there was here on LJ too I think, and they mentioned finding communities here on LJ that were geared toward better roleplaying. Never really thought about it after that. The first Harry Potter movie was released on my dad's birthday, 2001... After seeing the movie, it got me thinking...and I started looking for RPGs. I found one, called Oblitesco, and the rest is history. I was hooked after that. Sadly though, it wasn't until about a year or two later that I actually read the books. Don't ask me how I got through HP RPGs without reading the books cuz...somehow it happened... =P

Harry Potter Meme, etc. )
