My parents are in Australia.

My parents are in Australia!! It's so nuts. The in-laws have finally met each other and I think it went really well. Barbeque was great, food was nummy and everyone was civil...except for the three and a half year old niece who is absolutely selfishly nuts. As all three year olds seem to be...

In other news, I still haven't seen HP7P1 and I won't see it until after my parents leave... major sadness but whatevs, I can deal. I'm anxious to see what all this spoileryish comment ) is about and omg everyone's been saying it's so true to the books I WANT TO SEE IT.

In NaNo news, I've given up, as I've no motivation to write my project anymore and my parents are in town which gives me hardly any time to write for the next week and a half-ish and...stuff. I can be proud of the fact, however, that I am about 1000 words further than any previous years. Maybe in 50 years I'll hit the 50k word mark. =P

Disney news? Tangled has been released in the US already. Someone uploaded the soundtrack to a Disney comm I'm in and...I'm not all up in that... PatF music wasn't fantastic but I enjoyed it...but this with the Mandy Moore thing and Donna Murphy and Zach Levi I'm not really feeling it... And then I don't like Mandy Moore at all but whatevs. And the best kicker?? It doesn't release in Australia until JANUARY. How not fair is that?

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.
