  • The last few weeks have been so loverly.
  • I've been getting out of the house a lot lately, which has done wonders for my outlook on life.   It's amazing what getting out of the house and having some fun will do!
  • Frankly, I was definitely starting to feel trapped, and all of the rain didn't help. 
  • I feel great now, especially since I rode Bob today=)
  • I finally got "Tangled" from the library and watched it.
A German movie poster - too cool - apparently it was called "Rapunzel" over there.
  • To be honest, I've never been into the Disney princess thing, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie.
  • But after hearing glowing reports all over the blogosphere, I figured I'd give it a try.
  • And verdict is...
  • I LOVE it!
  • Enough to have watched it 2 times already;)
Rapunzel was so cute, especially with her trusty frying pan - "Frying pans - who knew!" 
 
Flynn/Eugene...well, he may be animated, but I'm so totally in love;)  And is it just me, or does he have certain similarities to Errol Flynn, including the name "Flynn"? Umhm, I think so;)
 
Pascal was awesomely hilarious and had me rolling on the floor laughing uncontrollably every time he was onscreen.  Gotta love the little green guy:)
  • The animation is breathtaking - especially the hair!  I'm still amazed by the hair.
  • The humor was delightfully and truly funny - nothing vulgar or crude.  Totally family friendly.
  • Even my dad and brother like it - my dad says it's on our "to buy next" list.
  • I think I can say without hesitation that this is the ultimate movie to watch when I'm considering cutting my hair short. ;)
  • Speaking of that, there was one things that I didn't like.  It seriously freaked me out when Eugene cut Rapunzel's hair off.  I mean, doesn't that mean it will never grow back?!?!  Couldn't he have left it a little longer, just for me?  Huh?  Maybe?!
  • I'm okay.
  • Switching gears...
  • The test results on my sheep's abscesses came back and they do NOT have some strange, nefarious disease. Praise the Lord! =D
  • For some random reason they just have abscesses which, according to the vet, will clear up and heal on their own with no help from me.
  • I like abscesses that clear up on their own for a change. *grin*
  • After much thought, I decided to switch the horses to the lower sheep pasture and the sheep to the horse pasture for a while.
  • I have several very good reasons for doing that - 1) sheep and horses do not share the same parasites, and 2) the horse pasture is being taken over by daisies.
  • A field of daisies may be pretty, but around here daisies = weeds.
  • Speaking of weeds, I spent some time this evening pulling thistles in the lower pasture.  Not even Calvin will eat those, unfortunately.  But it was a beautiful evening, so I didn't mind...much.
  • The homeschool graduation is this Saturday.  We'll definitely be there - we've received 4 invitations, so we'd better be, right? ;)
  • Well, it's getting late, so Happy Trails, y'all!
P.S. This totally cracked me up.  Enjoy...;)

Yay! Another Rapunzel fan. :-D
 
I loved how those little girls did her hair--so pretty, and much more practical than having it trailing 70 feet behind her. Eek. (And I love that all those little girls are redheads! Yay!)
I'm glad I'm not the only one who was shocked when Eugene cut her hair off. "Ack! He ruined her!!!" That whole thing about it never growing any longer afterwards...for some reason I found that really creepy. *Shrug*

It's not just you. :-) I read somewhere that he is based on Errol Flynn, hence the name. Hee.
 
The hair--oh yes, amazing indeed, considering only a few years ago Pixar was having trouble with Violet's hair in "The Incredibles"!

LOL!
It may also help some blonde lassies be more reconciled to their straight hair. ;-)
 
So glad your sheep are OK (or will be) and didn't have anything nasty.
 
God bless,

Definitely more practical, especially as washing 70 feet of hair would be quite a chore!
Those little girls are soooo cute=)
Yeah, I was seriously shocked when he cut her hair off.  My jaw dropped. 
 
lol.  I knew there had to be a connection between the two:)
 
I'm glad my sheep are ok, too. 
 
Blessings,

P.S.
I'm glad the movie is called by its PROPER name *somewhere* in the world. "Tangled" is just so...lame...IMHO, anyway. :-P

@Rebekah - I think they should have just called it "Rapunzel", too. 
 
@Michelle - It is a really good movie, although (just to warn you) there is some "magic" in it.  For example, Rapunzel's hair glows when she sings a certain song and it can heal injuries and make people young again.  It didn't bother me because it's so totally not real.  But, I wanted to let you know:)
