I had wholly intended today to be a completely writing-based day. And then I remembered my recently acquired Disney film collection. I figured I could just watch one before getting into some serious creative kung fu.
So I watched Disney/Pixar’s UP, cried like a baby, and and put on another one and then another and another.
Managed to catch up on some old classics as well as the newer ones. Sleeping Beauty; all hail Maleficent, Mistress of all Evil (not to be confused with Elvira, Mistress of the Dark…who is also amazing, but for totally different reasons). Monsters Inc; Boo, too cute for words. Realised that I don’t like The Jungle Book, which of all the Disney films I’ve seen, has some of the poorest re-used animation loops. Realised that I do like Tarzan. Emperor’s New Groove is…well, it’s weird. And to close I watched Bambi, which I am now confident I never actually finished watching as a child, since when I watching it tonight, everything after the whole “mother” incident seemed new.
I did tear myself away. To play World of Warcraft for a bit. But eventually I actually sat down, as I am now, and did some writing. Woo.
Yes, in amidst all my fanny-ing about, I am actually still finding the time to write occasionally!
