Mary Poppins...


So, I rented Mary Poppins the other night and watched it before going to bed. It was kinda nostalgic and I even lied on my stomach with my legs and feet up and hands under my chin watching, laughing, (even humming the songs...I didn't want to appear uncool in front of the dog, being an Older adult now).

Stupid, but I remember liking the imagination the movie gave me. I wished that every picture I would place on the floor and jump on/in I could be like Mary Poppins and her friends. I even sang the song in my head if I had to take medicine as a child,(maybe my mom helped even singing..."A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, medicine go down..") but it never tasted better :o((! And I have to say that I was unable to clean my room with the snap of my fingers...No matter how hard I tried.

Well, I went to sleep happy and content singing (in my head)

"Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"

Maybe I should say that when someone at work is killing me! 'o)

3 ramblings of your own:

First of all I would like to say how impressed I am that you spelled out supercalignalfoie....you know what I mean. =) Second, I tried the fingersnap thing repeatedly and it never worked either. Always a disappointment that would send me right back to the betamax to see what step I had done wrong. ??? The other day I was at the toystore buying a bday gift for a child, and I saw some strawberry shortcake dolls. Well I started to smell them (remember that smell?) and instantly was taken back to 1983 or so. I tried shoving one in Kalani's face, but he just wasn't having it. =) I love old things like that which bring back old memories.

I love that movie and always will, except for Dick Van Dyke's horrible accent:)

i could just see you. It's a good thing you got it out of your system though, cause I would have been laughing at you if I was there. Not out of meanness, but because you would do the same to me.

love you
