I just got tagged to play a game on WordPress! The positively wonderful blogger over at Manicmation decided to include me in all the fun! If you haven’t seen her blog you should really check it out. It’s a pretty spectacular site about animation and the love of it. I know. It sounds like heaven right?
You just answer 10 questions that your tagger asked and then ask 10 new ones about anything you want and then tag a few other bloggers that you admire and respect. It’s a great way to get around the community and actually talk a little with the bloggers you follow.
So here goes!
1. If you could date any super hero, who would it be?
I would so date either Superman (well really Clark Kent) or Captain America. They are so good and wholesome I just love it! When I was little my dad and I watched the old Superman movie with Christopher Reeve and and I would play with my toys and ignore the TV when Superman was on, but when that nerdy, adorably awkward Clark Kent was on screen I was glued to the TV. I have pretty much always had a soft spot for the quiet and nerdy ones. I have to admit, though,
Enrique ”The Husband” has this sexy superman hair curl over his forehead that drives me crazy, and he is pretty much a goody two shoes, so I think that I married the real Clark Kent. He even dressed up as Clark Kent one year for Halloween. I can’t decide if he was sexier that day or on our wedding day when he wore a James Bond Tuxedo. It might be a tie.
As for Captain America, he’s a gorgeous gentleman in a uniform who fights Nazis for ‘Merica! What is there NOT to love about that man? ~Swoon~
2. Have you ever cried during an Animated Movie?
All the time. Here’s a list of some that I cry when I watch.
Up: If you don’t cry almost through the entire movie then you have no heart and I think that you should probably see a doctor about that because you might have a serious condition.
Lion King: It gets me every single time.
Mulan: As a girl who is very close to her family, the idea of wanting to make my dad proud is something that I can really relate to and seeing that scene at the end of the movie where father and daughter are reunited makes me think about how much I love my daddy. (Yes, I know that I am 25 and still refer to my father as daddy. I can’t help it.)
The Little Mermaid: I used to watch this with my daddy when I was little and he used to say that I was going to leave him and run off with some prince one day too. I cry at the end because it reminds me of the exchange I had with my dad on my wedding day and what a beautiful father daughter moment it was.
Monsters Inc.: “Kitty, don’t go!”
Toy Story 3: It made me feel nostalgic and miss being a kid. Then I went a dug up some old toys I’ve kept and I played with them.
Dumbo: When Mrs. Jumbo is in jail and she sings to Dumbo and rocks him and sings “Baby of Mine” I lose it. Especially when Dumbo starts crying… Oh no. I am crying just thinking about it.
Fox and the Hound: They just want to be friends! Why can’t they be friends?! Racism sucks, that’s why.
Beauty and the Beast: It’s my favorite movie ever and I just find the whole thing so beautiful but the main reason I always cry is because it takes me back to when I was a kid and I get nostalgic remember how awesome my childhood was.
Paperman: I wrote about it here.
Essentially it happens a lot. I am a big softie and sentimental and it doesn’t take much for me tear up. I like to at least think that it’s a graceful little cry.
3. Would you rather star in a Western or a Sci Fi Film?
Western! There is something super intimidating about walking down a dusty road with spurs and watching everyone scatter. Oh! It could be both ever like Firefly! I’d be so down with that.
4. Which language do you wish you were fluent in?
I used to be pretty fluent in German but over the years of not using it I have lost quite a bit of it. I wish that I hadn’t. It would be neat to visit the mother land someday.
5. How is a Raven like a Writing Desk?
They both produce a few notes, all very flat, and are almost never turned the wrong way front.
6. What’s one quote that really inspires you?
“It is hard to fail, but it worse never to have tried to succeed.” - Theodore Roosevelt
(I kind of have a love for all things Teddy.)
7. How many States in the United States have you been to?
I am going to guess about 13(ish).
8. Which Disney character are you most like?
I think that I am the most like Belle. Now whether that’s because I was obsessed with her from a young age and became like her or if it’s because I am naturally like Belle is up for debate. ”The Husband” seems to think that I willed myself to be like her because I think she’s the bee’s knees.
We’re both avid readers that love adventure and want more than a small town life. We are considered the odd balls in our home towns. We both fell in love with men who are can get very grumpy but are excellent dancers.
9. What is the cheesiest movie you’ve ever seen?
Cry Baby. I cannot take that movie seriously. It is just too much. I watched it at a slumber party and I regret it. She drinks her own tears for goodness sake! It wasn’t even the good kind of cheesy.
10. If you could be a bird, which bird would you be?
I’d be a bald eagle. They are just so majestic!
11. What is one job that you’d be terrible at?
Professional Football player… That was the first thing I could think of and I think it rings pretty true.
