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.
