Beauty and the Beast Tag by Meredith

First of all, let me just say, Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite movies. So I'm super excited to be doing this tag and that Meredith dedicated an ENTIRE WEEK to it. YAY.



Let's jump right in!

The Tag Questions: 

1.When did you first experience Beauty and the Beast?

The 1991 Disney animated movie was one of those movies I grew up with. I don't know how old I was but I was probably watching it when I was born! We owned (and still have) it on VHS and used to watch it a lot.

One of THE best quotes of the whole movie
2. In what forms(book, movie, retelling) have you experienced Beauty and the Beast?

I watched the Disney version first and not until a couple of years ago, my French teacher explained the original story. I have read children's versions but not the original story. I'm hoping to read it in French one day.


3. Who is your favorite character in Beauty and the Beast?

My favorite character is hands-down, Belle. Not for her princessy yellow gown but for her attitude toward the Beast and how she helped him. And, of course, her love of books.



4. What is your favorite song from the cartoon Beauty and the Beast?

My favorite song with lyrics is probably "Be Our Guest" but musical piece is probably the Prologue.



5. If you were turned into a piece of furniture what you want it to be?

Gosh, this is such a hard question! Oh! A bookcase! I'm a genius...



6. What would your dream cast for Beauty and the Beast be? (This can be as elaborate or simple as you desire.)

I'm not the "make-a-dream-cast" kind of person so I'm going to have to pass on this question...

Sorry guys...
7. If your school were performing BatB which character would you want to play?

I'd want to play Belle but a part of me wouldn't because "WHAT IF I MESS UP?!" 

With that said, I'd probably be too nervous to sign up... *boos*


8. Like Belle, do you enjoy reading books multiple times?

Of course! I love to read books over and over which is probably why I don't go to the library often because I have several of my own!


9. If you were to write a retelling, what would you change?

There's really nothing I could change! Except maybe a different meaning of Beast but other than that, I like the story the way it is.


10. Are roses your favorite flowers? 

They are not my favorite flowers *gasp* but they're my second favorite! My first favorite are Niphredil especially when walking through hills of them...



*applause* Congratulations! You made it through this entire post! Make sure to visit Meredith's blog for more Beauty and the Beast fun! Thanks for reading!

My Unexpected Hiatus (with Baymax gifs)

Well, it's been a while since I've posted hasn't it? Since Christmas?! That is... really sad. I can't believe that I haven't posted anything for that long! Hopefully I can be able to post more in the future.


Other things, I'm so sad that I missed out on so much while I wasn't around! *cough* Jane Austen week *cough cough* I'm still trying to finish reading all of the posts! At least I'm here now and just in time for Beauty and the Beast week.

Fist bump that I'm not super late!!!
So you shall be expecting my tag answers when I am finished publishing this post. If the answers don't take too much time to think of...

Another alternative to headdesking
Other than apologizing, I can't find anything else to add in this post...

*Frodo takes over the keyboard*

Hello readers! I shall do a guest post very soon and I would like to know what you would like me to blog about! Please comment if you have anything in mind! Now I'm going to leave before Fawn kills me...


*Fawn almost kills Frodo by yelling at him*

Sorry guys, *raises voice* I ALREADY TOLD FRODO NOT TO DO THAT! Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my apologetic post and I hope you'll forgive me. Have a great rest of the day!


P.S. Don't have to feel bad for Frodo... he deserves to be yelled at.

Christmas Has Come and Gone...

Hello everyone! First off, let me just say that I'm very sorry I haven't been around. Things are always crazy around the house(and will probably always be crazy).

I can't believe Christmas is already gone! It went by so fast. Well, we're still in the Christmas season so Sunday mass is still going to have incense!


I'm moving right along to what I got for Christmas because I am very anxious to just tell you all. I got *trumpet blares* hobbit slippers!

They look like this except WAY better in real life!

Not that I needed them (because I already have hobbit feet!) but they are pretty darn cool. One of my older sisters gave them to me and they are SO COMFY. I wear them ALL. THE. TIME.

Me when I opened the box on Christmas Eve

What else did I get? Let me see. Oh yeah! I got a gift card to Ruby's Diner from my Uncle Jr. And my Uncle Stinky (yes, we really call him that...) gave me some very cozy mittens and ear-warming thingy that looks like a sweatband. But they are SO STINKIN' WARM! I feel silly wearing it around the house and I feel like I'm an 80's aerobic dancer. Not that it's a bad thing! I think they're awesome!

And I, being the best gift-giver ever, made my aunts and uncles (even Uncle Stinky) mugs! Well, I didn't exactly make the mugs but I bought mugs and drew Disney characters on them. I will try to get some pictures of them in a different post. I drew Ewoks, Wendy Darling, Moana, Superman, Nick Wilde, Nemo, little Dory, and more! So come back and visit if you want to see what I did!

And, just in case I don't have time to write another post before the new year comes, have a happy New Year!

P.S. Hello Fawn's blogger friends and occasional visitors! This is Frodo Baggins and I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! Stay warm, everyone!

I'm Feeling A Little Paranoid Right Now

*crawls from under a table* Hi everyone! So is anyone else like really afraid what tomorrow has in store? Because *nervous laugh* I am.

Just watch this video and you might understand. And maybe laugh a little.

*breathes in paper bag* If you're wondering why I'm so worried is because the voters of the United States have my life in their hands. And millions of future Americans. "Why is your life in the balance of this election?" you might say. Well, because I'm homeschooled. And vaccinations aren't really my thing. So if a certain candidate wins, my homeschooling life is basically over. As well as the miracles that are taking place as we speak. (Human lives being born, anyone?)

(And I am very sorry for including politics in this post. I just needed a place to let my fears out...)

I'm really glad I can go back to Middle-earth and be safe there. I've been staying on Earth for a while and I realized that we're taking part of the "deep breath before the plunge".

On a totally different subject, I'm going to Disneyland on Friday! With a big group! So expect pictures if the world doesn't end before then. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually be in one of them. Because usually I take the pictures of everyone haha. I'm glad I'm going soon because I have something else to focus on besides what's going on in the world. (Comment below what your favorite theme park memory/attraction is!)

California Screamin' for the win!

*light bulb* YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS STORY!

So last week, Pippin and Merry were at our hole and it started snowing! So we went outside and started playing with the snow. Then, the funniest thing happened. Merry dropped his candy cane in the snow. And then when he licked it, his tongue got stuck! Pippin laughed so hard that he fell backward and knocked his head on a tree. After that, a bunch of snow came falling down on him. He reminded me of Anna from Frozen.


I would call that event a eucatastrophe! Haha, although I'm sure they wouldn't agree... XD

Sorry about this super rambly post but I hoped you enjoyed it! Stay safe everyone and God bless!

Q & A Tag from Nimrodel


Hello there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? I guess I don't really have any excuses at the moment. There is seriously so much I want to accomplish in one day that it takes me weeks to finish. *sigh* Life is too short. And too long on some days. Anyway, Nimrodel (Lover of Lembas) tagged me for the Q & A Tag! Thank you so much for giving me an easy ticket to post something!

Rules:

  • Tag the blogger(s) who have nominated you
  • Answer the questions you were given
  • Nominate 10 bloggers
  • Write out your 10 questions
  • Let them know they’ve been tagged

Just a question, but why do we have to tag the person who tagged us? Isn't that defeating the purpose of a tag? Maybe I'm just to lazy (or compassionate) to tag Nimrodel right now...

Nimrodel's Questions!


Do you play a sport?  Is there a sport you want to learn?

No, I don't play any sports. Although, I used to be in Tae Kwon Do when I was six...

So nostalgic right now... I remember doing stuff like this!
I have a kick pad like that and all my sparring equipment...
Does Tae Kwon Do count as a sport? I was in a sparring tournament! I earned a few medals and proud of it... ;)

I think I would want to learn archery. That's a sport, right? Haha, I'm not even sure if these are sports.

Sunrise or sunset?  Why?

Ooh, this is hard. I'm going to have to choose sunrise because everything is still asleep. And I like watching light come not go. If that makes any sense...

*hums Circle of Life because I am
disappointed that I don't know the real words* XD
What was your dream job as a little kid?

I wanted to be a ballerina. Now I think I want to be either an animator, a writer, or a computer programmer.

What was the last movie you watched you really liked?

I watch so many movies in a week it's not even funny. I watched Radio Flyer recently... *remembers heart-stabbing sadness* It was a good movie. What else...? OH! CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR! Now that was a good movie. I really liked that one :D

What songs are stuck in your head?

Erm, Christmas songs. My dad has been making sure my sister and I have been working on our Christmas "performance" because last year we didn't do anything. So I've been combining religious songs with "regular" Christmas songs and figuring out chords for the piano and stuff.

What is something that makes you feel nostalgic?

When I watch anything LOTR/Hobbit related. OR when I watch an old TV show I used to watch as a kid. *cough Backyardigans cough*

If you were granted an extra hour to be added to your day (so you have 25 hours) what would you spend the hour doing?

Painting. On the computer. I don't know why but right now I'm obsessed with speedpaint videos on YouTube. So I've been painting some stuff on my computer. Here's one I made for my friend a couple of weeks ago...

I'm the orange pony and my friend is the pink one

What is one of the most embarrassing moments you're willing to share?

Oh, I've had a lot of those. Especially when my sisters are around. I'm not pointing fingers or anything but more embarrassing things happen when I'm with my sisters. One of the most embarrassing was my 13th birthday party. My older sister gave me this card that had something to do with old farts and the rest is humiliating history. I remember seeing all of my friends looking around awkwardly. Haha, I probably threw the card away as soon as the party was over XD

If you could customize your car license plate (for most U.S. readers, that means pick any combination of 5-7 words and letters) what would you want your license plate to say?

I probably would want it to be something related to God because that's my identity. I don't know! That's a good question...

Rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, or the ocean?

Streams! I was going to choose rivers but streams are much more peaceful.

Thanks so much, Nimrodel, for tagging me! Now I shall tag 10 more bloggers!

The Tagged Bloggers:






Well, sorry for the disappointment but Nimrodel follows some of the (very few) bloggers I follow...


And no one likes getting tagged twice. I know I don't... But I'm going to do it anyway! Haha! Take that lovely friends! :D

The Punished List of Tagged Bloggers:






Now for the ten questions:

1. What is your favorite thing about fall?
2. How do you eat a cupcake? (Trust me, there are several ways...)
3. How do you prefer your cookies? Crispy? Gooey? Half-baked? RAW?!
4. Is there a traditional food and/or dessert your family makes for the holidays? What is it? (Can I possibly have a recipe?!)
5. What is your favorite soup?
6. What do you eat for breakfast during the holidays? Anything special?
7. Do you carve out your pumpkins to decorate your porch during Halloween time?
8. Are you excited to eat all of the delicious food waiting for us in these coming winter months?!
9. Does it snow where you live? About how much snow do you get?
10. Do you make your hot cocoa special? Any extra marshmallows or whipped cream? Powdered cinnamon?! Does anyone drink champurrado?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

As you can tell by my questions, I'm hungry.  So I'm going to serve myself a bowl of pozole right now... Eat well, my friends!

Why I Am Obsessed With Annedroids

So there's this show on Amazon Prime that Liah and I watch. It's called Annedroids. And it's amazing. I love it. It motivates me not to groan when it's time to do science. It's a very educational show. And guess what?! My mom (bless her heart) counts watching this show as doing science(!).

This post is meant to explain my obsession with this show. Hopefully, it makes any bit of sense. If it doesn't, well I tried. Let us begin.

The Main Characters:

From left to right: Shania, Anne, and Nick
Shania

Shania is a hyper girl. She loves gymnastics, dancing, singing, and showing off to anyone who will watch. She is Nick's next door neighbor and lives with her grandma and three little brothers. There's a certain spark about Shania that makes her so lovable. She doesn't like to get dirty and is easily bored when Anne starts to explain something scientific to her. But she knows she must help Anne or else she risks missing out on something fun. She hates when something happens in the junkyard without her there.

Anne

Anne is the girl who lives in the junkyard with her dad. She is a scientist and has built three androids: Hand, Eyes, and Pal. The three androids help her with her experiments for school or for exploration purposes. She's never had any friends outside the junkyard since she's homeschooled. She is very interested in learning new things and loves to make things better than ever before. Anne is a very sweet and humble girl which is the perfect addition to the trio.

Nick

Nick is the new kid in town. He plays video games most of the time before he gets curious about the junkyard across the street. He's sort of introverted but Shania is a great counter balance for that. Being the only boy, he gives a different perspective on things when Anne needs to find a new solution to a problem. Nick lives with his mom who is a reporter for the local news. He goes to the junkyard whenever he can so he can help Anne build things and spend time with the androids.

The Thing I Absolutely Love About This Show:
Everything. The characters, the story line, how Anne ties her hair with cables and wires and it looks so darn cute. All of it. I just gobble it up and want to binge watch all the episodes. EVERY. SINGLE. WEEKEND.

The Thing I Hate Most About The Show:
The suspense! I had to wait a whole year to find out what happened to... never mind. I hate suspense so when I saw the third season was on Amazon Prime. What was my reaction? Must. Binge watch. NOW. What did my mom do? Not let me binge watch *headdesks obsessively*

If I tell you anything about what happens in any of the seasons, I will kill it for you. So I'll leave that there. There's only three seasons and we're one episode away form the end of the last season. The third one came out this summer and what was so crazy. In the beginning when Anne... *breathes heavily* And then Nick's mom... *breathes in paper bag* AND CURSE MAGNUS TECH AND ADA TOO BECAUSE... *runs off and nearly dies from suspense for the next season*

There isn't much about Annedroids on the internet. So I'm coming up with a name for the few fans of the show. So I am VERY proud to say that I am a Fandroid! Pretty clever, right?

Well, I hope you can check out the series somehow because it's a great show. Thanks for reading and I hope you're all ready for October! I can't wait!!!
