Funny Friday - Aunt Maggie

  Me-

When I was little one day, I went around saying "Maggie! Maggie Maggie!" and carrying around my Aunt Maggie's picture. When my Mom asked if I wanted to see my Aunt Maggie, I nodded my head. When my Aunt Maggie came over, I would not say hello to her, I would not go over to her, I would not let her hold me, and I would not say goodbye to her. As soon as she left I said "Come back, Maggie!"

Mom:

When Melia was little,  I told her I was going to call her Aunt Maggie. We went downstairs, and I got the phone. Melia ran over and got a picture of her Aunt Maggie and I. She kept pointing to her Aunt Maggie in the picture and saying "Maggie!" Then, she started hugging the picture.

We welcome you to share your funny stories with us.

Tune in Monday for another Talking Topic.

Disenchanted

We were not financially compensated for this post. We received free tickets to Disenchanted for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.

Me - Disenchanted, wow! I am not sure if I am happy about them making fun of  the princesses or not. The acting was good  though. My favorite was Cinderella. She wasn't a mean Cinderella. She was just kind of dumb in a funny way. The singing was great. All of the actresses had nice singing voices. The songs were just okay  though. The costumes reminded me of the costumes in the Disney movies except for the Little Mermaid, Rapunzel and Mulan. Rapunzel was made up to be so ugly. Mulan, to be fair, I have never actually seen. I have only see my sister's Mulan, Barbie doll. I liked the way the character of Sleeping Beauty was always sleeping. My favorite part of the show was when Rapunzel divided the audience for a sing-off and she put almost the whole audience on one side and only one or two people on the other.  The audience at the show was mostly filled with women. That is because princesses usually appeal to women and girls much more than men and boys. The show implies that being a princess does not lead to happily after. However, I would still like to believe that it does.

Mom - Everybody knows that Disney packaging all their princesses together is all about merchandising. In the show Disenchanted the princesses are grouped together for the opposite reason. They are not trying to sell a fairy tale or anything else. They are trying to debunk the fairy tales that have already been told. Of course, it is all in fun, and it is a lot of fun. Where else can you hear among other things Pocahontas lamenting about how many liberties Disney took in bringing her story to life and The Little Mermaid admitting that maybe having legs instead of a tail can have its bad side. Ten princesses are represented in the show none of whom are, of course, mentioned by their Disney names for obvious copyright reasons unless their original names are the same as those used in the Disney version, such as, in the case of Snow White, Cinderella and Belle. All of the names are familiar, however, except for maybe Princess Badroulbadour who it turns out is the princess from Aladdin. I can see why Disney changed her name to Jasmine. More recent princesses, Merida in Brave as well as Anna and Elsa in Frozen, are not represented although there is a reference to Anna and Elsa. I enjoyed everything about this show. However, what I liked best was that it showed that even a fairy tale princess life would probably not be as wonderful and perfect as it might seem like it would be and that can make us all feel a lot better about our own less than perfect lives.

And that's our view. What fairy tale princess myth would you like to see debunked?

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Disenchanted

We were not financially compensated for this post. We received free tickets to Disenchanted for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience.
What: Disenchanted

Where: Theater at St. Clements
            423 W. 46th St.
            New York, New York

When: Now through  January 25

Who: Teens and adults

Our view: If you think all shows about princesses are for little girls, you would be wrong. This show is definitely not for little girls nor is it a fairy tale. It is, however,  a great show for grown-up girls, girl who can relate to the fact that there really is no such thing as fairy tales. The show makes its point its in a funny way by poking  fun at  princess story conventions through  amusing songs.  There are songs about the crazy things that happen in fairy tales, how all princesses always have good figures and how princesses are never allowed to eat. These are just a few of the fairy tale conventions poked fun at in this show.  All of the songs  in the show are amusing, but none of them especially stand-out out any more than the others. The show is well-cast and all of the acting and singing is good. The cast is admirably led by Michelle Knight as a fiesty Snow White and Becky Gulsvig as a ditsy Cinderella. Even though the show does not particularly engage in man bashing (or prince bashing), the princes are hardly mentioned if at all, it seems to appeal much more to women than men as the women in the audience far out number the men. This fact along with the subject matter makes the show a particularly good choice for a girls night out or a bachelorette party.

And that's our view. Tune in to tomorrow's Talking Topic post for more about Disenchanted.

Tips for Tuesday - Apps., Web-Sites and YouTube Channels

Me - Today I am recommending  iFunny. It 's really cool. You make an account and post funny things. Also, you read other people's funny things. You can literally spend hours on it is so much fun.

Mom - Today I am recommending unroll.me. This web-site helps you organize your inbox. It makes it easy to unsubscribe from a whole bunch of unwanted subscriptions at one time. You can also have subscriptions that you do want sent to you in a daily roll instead of one at a time so that you can go through them quickly. It's a real time saver. For more information, go to https://unroll.me.

And that's our view.  Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.

Blogger Opp ~ NuWave Cooktop Giveaway ($99 ARV)

Hosted By : Deliciously Savvy
NuWave Cooktop 3333Deliciously Savvy uses this portable NuWave cook top regularly and loves it! She does everything with this product! Deep Frying, boiling, steaming, fondue, sauteing….. you name it, this cook top can do it!  She figured that she would share the amazing convenience of this cook top with our readers! This cook top came in extremely handy for Thanksgiving! And we know that  you will be using it for Christmas and so many holidays/occasions. You just never seem to have enough burners when you have those large meals to prepare and sometimes you need such an exact temperature for certain cooking methods, that this burner works better for the precise temperature that certain meals and/or cooking scenarios require versus your traditional stove top! That is why everyone should have a Nu Wave! And Deliciously Savvy wants to share!

Check out the Detailed Info from Nu Wave Below:
The NuWave Precision Induction Cooktop (PIC2) as seen on TV offers precise temperature control, adjustable in 10-degree increments. With a minimum temperature setting of 100F and an upper limit of 575F (Sear), the NuWave PIC2 offers a wider temperature range than competitor models. This permits the appliance to act as more than just a cooktop. The NuWave PIC2 does the thinking for you. It offers state-of-the art programming technology with 100 hours of memory that allow you to prepare complex recipes with ease. A “Delay” function allows you to initiate cooking when it’s most convenient for you, including an automatic shutoff function when cooking time is completed. The NuWave PIC2 was engineered with a circular design scheme, doing away with excess space that serves no cooking function. The PIC2’s round design also echoes the traditional feel of an intimate gathering place like the kitchen or dining room table. Mealtime is about community and the PIC2 was designed with that idea in mind. Despite its portability and compact size, the NuWave PIC2 offers a large cooking area, measuring 9 inches in diameter. In this case, bigger is better, with the PIC2 allowing for greater diversity in cooking vessels and portion sizes.
