Hero of the Week: Beauty and the Beast
B&B was my favorite movie when I was a kid, and Belle was defiantly my favorite princess. She was my favorite when I was very young because she was the only princess with brown hair and green eyes. She was my favorite when I was in middle school because she liked to read. In high school, I liked her because she was loyal to her family. Now I love her because she shows discernment of character and a hunger to expand her worldview. And Belle is only one reason I love this movie! The songs are awesome, and I was able to watch in blu-ray for the first time this week with Jack. We hung out in my room, newly named "Fancy Land" by Jack, and watched this cinematic masterpiece in sing-along mode. The new feature helped me to learn some song lyrics that I had never understood before: "Sally forth, tally ho/Praise the Lord and here we go!" "We're 50 strong and 50 Frenchman can't be wrong!" Pure genius!
Villain of the Week: Jamie
Yes, I am this week's villain. I have done myself far too much damage this week to go without punishment! It all started innocently enough with a day trip to Baltimore. I'm not much of a city driver, but I decided to go anyway. I found a parking garage near my final destination before leaving, but somehow managed to drive through the whole garage and missed every open parking spot. I had to leave the garage and find a new place to park, which was a bit further than I had planned on. Once parked, I set out on foot. In my infinite wisdom, I wore boots with 3" heels despite the snow and ice the day before. Here's the thing about Baltimore: it has a lot of tall buildings, and ice doesn't melt so well between buildings where the sun can't reach. I managed not to fall, but did pull a tendon in my foot. Now, why would I do that if I wasn't a villain? But alas, the story gets worse. After injuring my foot, I enjoyed a delightful lunch with a dear friend. Sadly, I revolted against myself once again and became unpleasantly ill. Shame on me!
That is all for this week! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
