Subliminal influences

I'm still watching all my favorite old movies when they come on, trying to get back into good spirits. Tonight I was watching Mary Poppins and realized I recognized something familiar.

This is my jacket and my Lou Lou Loves You bow. I thought it was a bright and cheerful combo, right?

Then I realized I must have looked like Burt from the painting scene!

Not that I don't like this. I was just hoping I usually look more like Mary (practically perfect, right?) than Burt dancing like a penguin.


Of course, it goes without saying I want that pink pony from the merry-go-round.

Also, I can't believe Dick Van Dyke. This man is 82 (+?) but he still can kick some ass. Did you see him in Night at the Museum? He does not age!

And since we're still on the subject of musicals... here's a clip just for fun. The most romantic scene EVAH!

Aw I love Mary Poppins and Bert! That's one of my favourite movies ever, and I saw "them" at Disneyland on Sunday :)

Thanks for your hair vote!

I was the first one to audition for the role of Mary Poppins, until Julie Andrews decided to pull a "Tonya Harding" on me!

I dated Dick Van Dyke once. Nice guy, but Mary Tyler Moore got a little jealous. She pulled some strings in Hollywood and the next thing I know Dick dumped me and I was playing the stunt double for Mr. Ed!

Dick van Dyke is like Lesley Nielsen - they will live forever! I love the jacket, by the way x

Mary Poppins was one of my favourite movies as a kid! Have you seen the SNL spoof that Anne Hathaway did, the skit about what "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" really means?
