Um...again not wanting to clean...


So apparently the only thing that ever drives me to blogging is the last desperate attempt to not clean my apartment, lol. Because here I sit, yet again, with a floor covered in frosting and sprinkles, and all I want to do is update my blog :) 

What this blog is really about is that I have watched Anastasia approximately 8 times in the past 24 hours! When we were at Costco the other night, I stumbled upon a two-pack DVD set: Anastasia and Thumbelina (PLEASE! like I even had to THINK about letting such an opportune purchase pass me by), and Anastasia has been constantly playing on the DVD player for two days now. And I am so not ashamed, because it is a spectacular movie! I mean, seriously, look at the voices they got: John Cusak, Meg Ryan, Kelsey Grammer, Angela Lansbury, Kirsten Dunst, Christopher Lloyd! It was bound to be incredible, period. And I'm not going to lie, I have a tendency to have crushes on animated disney heroes. And although this one isn't Disney, I'm pretty in love with Dimitri. 
I really miss the days of the classic Disney picture. We were talking about this in the office today, and of course the guys could only talk about the political agenda disney "subtly" incorporates into all of their movies. But can we just forget about being grown up for a second and remember how big a part of our childhoods those movies were? I mean, honestly, who does not know every single word to every song in Aladdin or Beauty and the Beast? And tell me that you seriously did not shed a single, heartfelt tear when Mufasa was trampled to death. We LOVED disney! And I miss that. I don't care if Disney is pushing a socialist, or gay, or dysfunctional agenda. And I especially don't care that not a single one of their movies is historically accurate. I loved those movies as a child, and I'm bound and determined to own every single one of the classics before I bring children into this world. I will not raise my children to a bunch of singing vegetables!!

Do you even want to be friends still? If so you should burn this DVD. ITS A LIE! They botched the greatest story in the history of our world. Screw Hollywood. Anastasia was not orphaned. She was killed 1917 along with the rest of the Romanov family. And Rasputin was their pal and creepy hypnotic confidant. Wew, just had to get that off my chest. Love you still. And thanks for today.
