Unsinkable

Last year I began a tradition of having morning mimosas and brunch on New Year's Day rather than staying up late and drinking the night before.  I watched Gigi, which, with Maurice Chevalier's contagious optimism paired with champagne and crepes, was a great way to begin a new year. The year 2017 was kind of…

Who will rescue me?

On the subject of nostalgia, it's a good time to do The Rescuers.  It was my mom's favorite movie up until Princess and the Frog premiered, though I think it still is technically her favorite.  So obviously it was a much repeated vhs growing up.  I remember being very young at Epcot and Mom getting…

You Will Exit as a Friend

I haven't been feeling great this week, so I'm behind on stuff.  I did, however, want to do a quick little post from September 27th.  For those who know me well, this is significant date to me because it was the last night of the Adventurer's Club at Pleasure Island.  Now, I'm not a huge…

It Can’t Be Helped

I'm still trying to decide on a menu for the Rescuers.  It's kind of a tough one for me to nail down, honestly.  So in the meantime, since a hurricane was coming, and I was close enough to get some rain, but no longer in Florida among the worst of it, I gathered my typical…

An Old Fashioned Weekend

A couple months ago, I got this recipe book from Turner Classic Movies.  It wasn't very expensive, so I just figured I would try it out and see how it was.  And it is more glorious than I could have anticipated.  The only thing that could possibly make it better is if it had more…

My Favorite Taoist

I did a little something different with Winnie the Pooh.  I went with breakfast foods because I can add honey to most things.  Honey glazed piglet, for example, is delicious!  Plus, breakfast is so appropriate for this movie because this is what I would watch when I stayed home sick as a kid.  Specifically, I…

Once We Watched a Lazy World Go By

First of all, I have to acknowledge the passing of Marty Sklar.  I remember the summer of my sixteenth birthday we went out to California, and I had been out of gymnastics for a few years and had converted all my energies to Disney nerd-dome.  I helped to schedule our vacations by that age and…

Everybody Wants to Be a Cat

It's been ages since I've watched the Aristocats.  I have, however, become a cat lady in the last couple years of life.  I never had a cat as a kid, but having a dog as a single adult in an apartment is impractical, so I ended up with a cat.  So perhaps that has made…
