Ok... so I've been conspicuously absent lately... even when *I* come to my blog I get annoyed that it's not updated and there is nothing new for me to read (because we all know how entertaining I think I am- therefore- I am my own biggest blog stalker) but I've had priorities.

Like this broccoli salad. I'm sorry. I have to stop now to eat it. It's too fabulous to just sit there, not being eaten...

Yes. I eat broccoli salad. Don't judge me.

Ok... The real reason I haven't blogged is because I just feel like I haven't had anything to say. And I know darn well if I'm falling asleep writing it- You're falling asleep reading it. But I went home last weekend and lunched with some friends I haven't seen in ages and ages. One of them- a self proclaimed Disney addict like myself (she even worked at Disney World!) had never seen some of the most classic Disney cartoons! I thought, "huh... maybe I'm the freak here. Maybe not everyone in my decade of life (she is a little younger...) hasn't seen these. But some of them are older than my MOM (which, come to think of it really isn't very old. Hi Mom.)

Plus- it seems like all I want to talk about these days is Disneyland. I'm pretty excited to go. I was talking to a coworker today and she said that when she took her 6 and 4 year old daughters, they were so bored they wanted to leave. I can't even imagine that! At age 31 I walked through the park crying because I was happy to be in such a magical, happy place. I don't get kids who don't love it.

Anyway- I have decided that maybe the world needs to see the amazing cartoons I grew up on. Maybe you'll learn to love Disney a little bit more- or maybe it will bring back some amazing memories for you. 

So every day for the next six weeks- check back here for the classic Disney Cartoon of the day!  (and maybe a little trivia) If nothing else it will make your day a little bit brighter. :)

Steamboat Willie was Mickey's debut cartoon. It was not however the first created. I think (it's been a long time since I've studied my Disney encyclopedia) that was Plane Crazy.

45 more days to Disneyland!!!

Your coworker must have spoiled kids. Bored? Seriously? My kids were in heaven for FIVE days! How can a person be bored? I don't get it. I think it's awesome that you're going again. Better check your suitcase because I might stow away.

Susie I think this is my 5th time going to Disneyland. I went to Disney World once but that's not counted here.
