Random Day

Well, right now I'm putting off writing my speech. It should be an easy speech to do, but I really, really, really don't feel like it.
She expects it to be perfect, and yet we only get notes to read from. If you want a perfect speech, especially in this subject, I can't do it off the top of my head.
Anyway, I'm watching Disney Channel right now (there's nothing on) and I just saw a commercial for a movie that I'm pretty sure killed my innocence.
When I was probably... I guess 11 or 12, Disney came out with a movie called "Pixel Perfect"That blond (I always thought it was blonde... spell check tells me i'm wrong. huh.) is supposed to be the "perfect" girl. She's made from a computer program, etc. etc.
Now, for starters. Why is the perfect girl blonde? I don't know. That movie just rubs me the wrong way. It teaches girls that you're not perfect unless you aren't real. Completely stupid.

One of my FAVORITE disney movies would have to be Susie Q.It centers around a girl named Susie Q who was killed on her way to prom back in the 50s. She comes back as a spirit that can only be seen by this one kid, and she wants him to help her parents. Her parents are being kicked out of their house because of some sort of financial thing, but Susie knows where the important documents are.
Anyone that's seen the movie knows why I love it. It's just so cute and wholesome. The moment the car crashes into the bridge and that love song comes on the radio, and you see Susie's hand reach over for her boyfriend's... heartbreaking.
Want to know what else is heartbreaking? Disney doesn't air that movie anymore. And they didn't make any dvds. You have to search the internet for bootleg copies.
This is a longshot, but I found a petition to have it distributed. So, sign it? Haha!

Anyway, I guess I should work on my speech now. Ugh, no fun.

I can't even remember the last time I watched the Disney Channel. I don't think we get it.

Plus it has Miley on it, so that makes me want to boycott it.

I haven't seen any of those movies. Disney movies are usually pretty good. I hope you do well on your speech.

I love the Disney Channel, when we would get the free trial weekends once in a blue moon when I was a kid, it was SO exciting. And when it was finally a part of our cable package I was in my teens but still liked some of the movies, I only saw this one in parts, but I wanted to see it.

Do you remember Sundays nights with the Disney movie of the week? I ADORED THAT, that was from when I was little (the original version) and there are movies that I can't remember the names, but I remember bits and pieces and have looked for them, but NOT available. I HATE that!!

SUSIE Q! I love Disney, too. Well, I loved their old shows, like Even Stevens. Good stuff.

Blonde is correct for female. Blond is correct for male. My google spell check also tells me blonde is wrong, but Google is wrong!
