Damn you, Disney

Five days removed from the Happiest Place on Earth and I'm having some unexpected withdrawal side effects.

I woke up an hour before my alarm this morning with Ariel singing Part of Your World full blast in my head. And not just the words, (which I know every one of thanks to my sister, who will to this day, at 24, break into that song at inappropriate times-if we're lucky, there's also choreography), but the accompanying 'music video' as well. I had visions of Ursula taking her voice and giving her legs (I apparently was focusing on the second reprise?), and whoosits and whatsits galore.

And then, just as I jumped in the shower, my brain switched over to Mary Poppins. Just like that. I went from asking what a fire is and how it burns to chim-chiminy chim-chiminy chim-chim-cherie (Though, really, that's an excellent segue).

I'm blaming that part on the chimney sweep I spoke to on the phone yesterday. Gotta love local advertising.

But seriously, just try and get this out of your head. I dare you.


  1. I got that second reprise in my head in the shower a couple weeks ago and shocked myself with the fact I not only still knew all the words to the song, but even the face-paced Ursula part at the end... I wasn't sure whether to be embarrassed or proud... which in and of itself is embarrassing...

  2. CORRECTION: the song I had in my head WAS URSULA's SONG! I realize this now because you have gotten THIS song in my head.... aaaand I am now embarrassed to realize I know all the words to this one... as well... maybe me and Lauren can have a live reenactment one day...
