About a week ago (last Sunday to be exact) Chris and I decided to give up watching TV for a week.
I know, I know… I haven’t been able to spend my mornings with Robin Meade from HLN.
( on a side note, I’m pretty sure we would be best friends
if she knew I existed. Pretty sure of that. )
Anyway, since the tv hasn’t been on we have been forced to actually talk to each other during dinner – imagine that! It has been really nice, actually, to re-connect. We are both so tired after long workdays that we typically don’t spend ‘quality time’ with one another until the weekend.
This week, though, we have had to find other ways to entertain ourselves, and discussion over dinner several nights this week has morphed into some sort of pop quiz on trivia regarding the important things in life – such as the names of minor characters in Disney movies.
1. What was the name of the two mice on Cinderella?
2. What was the name of the candlestick in Beauty and the Beast?
3. What is sleeping beauty’s real name?
4. What is the name of Jasmine’s pet tiger?
5. Who are the rescuers?
6. Can you name all of the animals and the boy in the Jungle Book?
7. Who is the monkey in the Lion King?
This went on for some time, until Chris finally realized he’d been beaten and I am that master of this type of trivia. Honestly, I’m not sure how I remembered all of these….and the list continued too! I haven’t even seen these movies in years.
answers (in case you’re curious): Jaq and Gus, Lumiere, Aurora, Rajah, Bernard and Bianca, Baloo (bear), Bagira (panther), Shere Khan (tiger), Mowgli (boy), King Louie (The monkey king), Rafiki.
All of this Disney reminiscing of course lead to actually attempting to act out some scenes in movies with our poor, innocent little pup.

then comes the choir singing that chanting stuff, which nobody actually knows the words to
doobie dada be some nome be dee see wah,
doobie dadda me wah sana noma
I usually throw some homina homina’s in there as well, just for good measure.
