The Snowmen

Between today's (light) snow, and the BBC's announcement that Doctor Who return Saturday March 30 (YAY) I think the signs are clear that the universe wants me to actually write my recap/review of The Snowmen. Here's the thing. It's been weeks since I last saw the episode, so I may get some details wrong. I would rewatch it, but with homework and whatnot, I probably don't have the time. That's also why this will be (relatively) short.

The Disney Tag!

So there's this thing where people make lists of questions and ask people to make youtube videos responding to them. And they're usually themed. But not always.

Anyway, I don't make videos, but I saw someone who did a Disney themed one and I like the questions so here we go.

1. A scene in any Disney movie you wish you could experience. 

Being in the flying house from Up would be cool. I think the "Be a Man" sequence from Mulan would actually be pretty cool.

2. An unforgettable experience/moment you've had at the Parks. 

When I was like, six (three? I have no idea, I'll ask my parents) we went to Disney World (the one in Florida) and I saw Mickey Mouse walking down the path. And I decided that I wanted to try and follow him without him noticing me. I was not a very good ninja. As I was following him, he stuck out his hand for me to hold, so instead of following him sneakily, I held his hand and walked down the path with him. There's no picture of this (I think. Something else to check with my parents) but according to my parents it looked like the commercials.

3. What non-Disney song(s) reminds you or brings back memories of Disney and/or the Parks? 

"Dashing Knight" by All Caps. A lot of Christmas/Winter songs. Like "Winter Wonderland", or "Jingle Bells".

4.When was the first time you went to a Disney Park? 

I was a baby. My sister is a few years older than me, so she had more fun than I did. I don't remember this, as I was a baby at the time, but apparently Mickey Mouse came over and stuck his nose in my face. According to my Mom I screamed bloody murder and punched him in the nose. Mickey and I have a complicated relationship.

5.If you could choose any of the characters to be your best friend, who would you choose?

Rapunzel. I think we have a lot of shared interests. Mushu would also be fun to hang with.

6.Who are your favorite Disney princesses?

Rapunzel. Nala. Mulan (I don't care what you say, I think she counts). Merida. They are all strong independent women. 

7.Name a scene/moment in any Disney movie that never fails to make you cry.

The end of Toy Story 3.

8.What is the first Disney movie you remember seeing? idea. Lion King? Cinderella? Beauty and the Beast? Snow White? I have no idea. Probably one of those.

9.What is your favorite Disney movie?

Counting Pixar movies, The Incredibles. Not counting Pixar movies, Lion King.
