Thursday 13 :: How Disney Messed Me UP!

Life is FAR too serious for me at the moment, so I thought I'd do something fun. I've found a strong correlation between romance readers and fairy tale fanatics. And who gave us our first dose of happily ever after? Disney!

13 Ways Disney Skewed (or skewered) my reality...

  1. The Princesses :: I've never managed a luscious 'do without flyaways.

  2. The Princesses part deux :: No one can manage those waist proportions and breathe.

  3. Beauty and the Beast :: The bookish girl gets the prince

  4. Beauty and the Beast part deux :: If you love him enough, he'll change from a horrid beast into a prince.

  5. Robin Hood :: "He's as handsome as in his reward poster." Of course a felon must have a good reason for his larceny.

  6. The Little Mermaid :: Give up what you love most, and when he loves you enough you'll get it back.

  7. Sleeping Beauty :: If you wait long enough, your prince will come to you, no matter the walls you put up.

  8. Cinderella :: He'll figure out from your shoes.

  9. Aristocats :: He can save you

  10. 101 Dalmations :: He can save you and your children

  11. Pocohantas :: He needs you, even when he thinks he doesn't

  12. Mulan :: You can be anything you want, as long as no one knows who you are

  13. Peter Pan :: Sometimes, even magic can't turn his head's a good thing my grandma had all those romance novels. Romance sets the bar MUCH higher for its heroes.
