What Disney Movies Taught Me

January 25, 2012 · 45 comments

I love JennaMarbles, as you all know.

And I echo most of these sentiments:

*Disclaimer: Jenna is known for her profanity. Consider yourself warned.

A few notes:

1. I always got yelled at for singing at the dinner table. And at school. And in the general public. It took about 14 years until I finally figured out why that’s not completely acceptable.

Sorry for the embarrassment, mom.

But not really. I bet most strangers liked your unhinged, crooked-banged, jagged-tooth wonder gracing them with a little Disney ditty (or Grease.. it’s more likely I was singing “Summer Nights” or “SandraDee.”

2. I have ALWAYS been pissed at my hair for not perfectly coiffing like Jasmine’s, Belle’s, or Cinederlla’s.

If i tried to do that bobble ponytail, we all know what I’d look like.

Trippy, right?

I even tried the whole Jasmine thing for Halloween once. The hair thing didn’t even work out for me when I went the wig route.

I don’t think I was too concerned about the hair at the time. I was just busy rockin’ that purple eyeshadow like it was 1993.

Oh, wait…

3. I’d like to know where you get that flat tummy, Jasmine. I didn’t see a treadmill in your palace in Agraba. Just sayin’.

4. Malificent absolutely scared me to death. No idea why I wasn’t phased by Ursula, Scar, or Jafar, but Malificent was all kindsa freaky to my childhood self.

5. I named the pet beta fish Dana got me for my birthday GusGus in college after the fat mouse in Cinderella. Mainly in hopes that he’d start sewing my dresses and sweeping my floor.

He also lived for about three weeks, so… that worked out well.

I still love Disney. Especially my favorite princesses, Ariel and Cinderella.

Always have,

…always will.

Ariel and Belle were both my faves and I was them many times for Halloween. I even broke my Little Mermaid VHS because I would just play, rewind, replay, rewind, replay, rewind…all day erryday. Def needed dvds back then.

I LOVE Jenna Marbles. She is amazeballs.

Cinderella is hands down my favorite disney princess. I must have watched that VHS a billion times. I also love Pocahauntus because her hair was amazing. And I really wanted to dive off a waterfall down to my canoe where my animal-servants were waiting for me.

PS: That picture with the “I will sing you a song.” caption will probably haunt my dreams now.

You did not freaking dress up as Cinderella. Cray. Anyway, Malificent is obviously the most scary. She barely talks, and when she does, IT IS GO TIME.

hahaa.. my greek society in college did a Princess day. I was Cinderella. life dream = accomplished.

that little child still calls me Cinderella when she sees me, FYI.


5 Janine @ThePurpleGiraffe January 25, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Ariel and Belle for me too! Though Jasmine did have a big cat… totally jealous of that.

Hahah! Such a timely post. My dear husband casually mentioned that his frat brother is getting married at Disney in May. I went all Disney princess on him for the next 24 hours. You can’t just mention Disney and not expect a magical production from me. I was dreaming of Animal Kingdom all night.


7 Dorsa @ Running Thoughts January 25, 2012 at 4:32 pm

I love Disney, hence why I want to run the princess 1/2 marathon in Disney! sigh…..I have big dreams.

My hair when I was younger resembled Hermione from Harry Potter-Pre pretty face. I’m fairly certain I have pictures in a cape as well, maybe I was a wizard in a younger life?

If you like Jenna, you’ll love Dom. I don’t watch Jenna but she’s in a video with Dom called Dom vs Single Girls ft Jenna Marbles. It’s hilarious. Trust me, you’ll spend the next hour watching all his videos (vs thanksgiving, swag, drunk girls).


13 Alyssa @ Life of bLyss January 25, 2012 at 6:27 pm

ooohh, trust me. I’m well-versed with Dom. drunk girls is my fave.

“get my neck.”


14 janae@hungryrunnergirl.com January 25, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Ariel is my favorite too! You were such a cute little girl, I love the hair;) You are so right…Jasmine definitely didn’t have a treadmill! The magic carpet took them everywhere:)


15 Gabby January 25, 2012 at 6:03 pm

You make the perfect Cinderella! Have you done the Disney Princess Half?


16 Alyssa @ Life of bLyss January 25, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I wish! can’t convince anyone to drop all that money and travel down to FLA!


17 Mer January 25, 2012 at 6:16 pm

You crack me up with your hysterical posts. Thanks for making me laugh!


18 Life's a Bowl January 25, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Hilarious post! You totes rocked the lion mane ;) My hair on the other hand was stick straight and could never [and still can't] hold a curl… P.S. Ariel and Cinderella were def my fave!


19 Ashley A. January 25, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Unless if Disney makes up a Mexican princess, I have no hope. ): My favorites were always Ariel and Simba. Don’t blame me for wanting to be a boy as a kid… and I still do when it’s that time of the month. Also, due to Beauty and the Beast, to this day I do not leave inanimate objects alone because I feel they will be “lonely” while I’m gone.

JennaMarbles is amazing. I am obsessed! Thank you for introducing me.

You look like a legit princess in that picture. Just sayin.
And I still do the “Ahhh-Ahhh-Ahhhhhhh!” riff from the Little Mermaid when ANYTHING good happens. Seriously. It will never not happen.

2. we would be a mess together. I pull said riff out of my back pocket all. the. time.

27 cait January 25, 2012 at 8:42 pm

omg i was JUST thinking about doing a post like this when I saw Jenna’s video ha. I’ve always been a Bell and Ariel fan like bess– some reason living underwater always fascinated me and Belle is what gave me my confidence that reading was “cool” :)

hahaha I love that video! I agree I sang EVERYWHERE I WENT. My mom even said when we went to the movies I’d pick a character and then BE that character for the rest of the day. As in I”d only respond to that name. I was cool.

And, I love the Jasmin wig lol Belle was my favorite and I am blonde so that was difficult to pull off… They all have perfectly coiffed hair it makes me sick. NO ONE has hair like that.

I just had my little sister pretend to be Raja so I’d have a pet tiger. She’s amazing. She probably shouldn’t have fed into my strange obsession with Disney princesses though…
