The swingset is where I go to both escape and [over]analyze life. Back and Forth.

As far as fictional worlds, my picks include, but are not limited to: Harry Potter, Disney, The Wizard of Oz/Wicked, Hey Arnold!, Dexter, LOST, South Park, Dr. Horrible, Buffy, and Avatar

Anime: Bleach, FMA, Fruits Basket, Death Note, Ouran High School Host Club, Hetalia, Chobits, Soul Eater and more. Not very obscure, but I'm a relative newb.

How in the HE--I mean uh... squawk!

Disney Day 7
Favorite Sidekick


Yes, he is an evil sidekick, but only up until the sequel. Then this sidekick kicks butt. I love hime because he's like the Disney version of Daffy Duck. Or would that be Donald Duck.
Oh whatever, cartoon birds need more love, no matter how greedy of ruthless they are.
I'm going home to watch The Return of Jafar, PEACE!

The monkey's his uncle???

Disney Day 5
Favorite Animal


Wow so many to choose from, namely Scar or Iago.

What Makes a Monster and What Makes a Man?

Disney Day 5
Favorite Hero


For my senior seminar, I took "The Disney Empire: Cult & Power" and despite everything I learned there, I remain a fan of Disney. Like the sweetest drug you'll ever taste, just can't get enough.

Anycrap, I used the Hunchback of Notre Dame (highly underrated movie) as my main focus to demonstrate how Disney portays people with disabilities. And I fell for Quasi all over again. His songs are heartbreakingly touching...

I knew I'd never know
That warm and loving glow
Though I might wish with all my might
No face as hidious as my face was ever meant for Heaven's light

This beautifully tragic song transitions into one of the most uncomfortable songs to ever come out of the Disney: Hellfire.
And I freakin love it.

I never reallized how much I love tomatoes...

Now, father, you're living in the past. This is the 14th century!

Back to reality.
Well, not completely, never completely.
In the last week I've been to every country in Epcot, Hogwarts, and swimming with dolphins. I now question what I have left to live for.

There's always the Renaissance faire. I've never been so busy! Or so broke.
That's actually not true at all, I have been very far below the standard of living, and all this maddness is just a bit overwhelming. But how can I complain about having money?

I hope to have a few pictures up soon if real life doesn't consume me whole first.

Disney Day 4
Favorite Prince

Prince Philip

The most classic with the most screen time. He's best friends with his horse, he slays dragons, and looks sexi in chains. How could you not love good ol' Phil?

He was probably one of my first crushes besides baby Gonzo and Simon of the Chipmunks. Don't question my taste!
It would be a long time before I would develope a crush on something other than a cartoon...
