As the saga of bodily fluids continues on here,
one seeks solace in things that tend to take the mind away
from the situation at hand.
While some in my position may prefer to think on things
that matter...like Jesus or social justice or
pry deep into the inner workings of one's soul,
I tend to veer towards the frivolous...like decorating magazines,
or say, pondering the meaning of Disney songs.
It all started when we were searching for some kid appropriate music
for our little guys in the car and happened upon Radio Disney.
Actually, my love affair with Disney really took off with
the show Even Stevens (Shia LeBoeuf is hilarious) and
with Scott catching me fully enthralled
watching Cheetah Girls 2 on our vacation last year.
When he asked me what I was doing, I answered,
"They're in Spain, Scott, in a singing competition. And they're dancing.
Look at little Raven...all grown up! Who knew she could sing?"
Scott backed away slowly... a little perplexed.... a little scared.
It doesn't matter that I'm in my 30's...this stuff speaks to me.
This summer I've had the chance to enjoy a little Hannah Montanna and
witnessed the tween craze of High School Musical 2.
It must be said....I tried to replicate the "Bet on it"
Zac Efron dance in my sister's living room. It inspired me.
The leaping. The pent up emotion released through running and dance.
At a pivotal part of the movie, Zac says, "Hold Up!"
He realized he was being a jerk and he was going to change that...
you could "Bet on it".
Disney at it's best...back to the Radio Disney.
Listening to KMKY 1310 AM, Scott and I were caught up in a struggle
to understand the words to the Jonas Brothers song "Year 3000".
The chorus says:
I went to the year 3000
Not much has changed but they live under water.
And your great-great-great granddaughter.
Is doing fine. Doing fine.
Scott, with his old school rapping skillz,
was upset by the elementary rhyming of "water" and "granddaughter".
He requires more depth from a rhyme master than that.
I, on the other hand, was more undone by the poor math in the song.
There is no way, even with extreme genetic longevity,
that your great-great-great granddaughter
will be alive 1000 years from now.
Having discussed our problems with the song,
we sat back to enjoy its sugary pop goodness and believe me,
if you happen to hear this song,
(Scott has a link to it and other Disney faves on his blog)
you will be singing it for days, irregardless if you agree with the math.
So. There it is. I love Disney.
Erica just told me that this weekend there is
a High School Musical 2 Dance-A-Long on the Disney Channel.
That means they will be teaching all those sweet moves step by step.
I don't get the Disney channel.
That means it's up to my nieces,
Aly and Claire, to tape it for me and send it to me.
I know they will come through for me.
And when the tape arrives, I will be Dancing-A-Long.
You can "Bet on it".
