Afraid To Change

Disney has been accused, for quite some time, of putting subliminal messages or images in their cartoons.

In Aladdin, Aladdin tells Princess Jasmine's Tiger "Good teenagers take off their clothers".
In Lion King, there is a scene when the word Sex appears in the form of Clouds.
In Little Mermaid, the minister in the Wedding scene is apparently having a hard-on.

And more recently...

someone circled out in Little Mermaid's poster above that there is a dick

It doesn't bother me the least really. Give Disney a break.
Why didn't anyone credit Disney for twisting Hans Christian's original tragic ending to a contemporary happy one. In my interpretation, Merpeople is obviously a symbol of the (gay) minority in our contemporary world. It is no wonder then that so many of my gay friends relate to me (in private) that they relate to the character of Ariel. She represents a successful change from a depressed mermaid to a happy girl with legs to marry her true love.

Sexual/gender changes aside, The Little Mermaid calls for the need of a mentality to choose who you want to be, even when it seems that change is impossible.

No wonder "Part of your world" still ranks as one of my favourite songs of all time.

One of the Unsolved Mysteries In Life

I have been searching high and low for my beloved belt since two weeks ago.

I do not remember lending it to anyone, nor do I believe anyone could've taken the belt off me while I was drunk ('cos my jeans would drop). It is definitely impossible I took it off to spank anyone, or anyone took it out to leash me (the latter being higher a possibility, but nah). My brother denied borrowing it, nor do I see it being passed out from bengy or man9o as shit. It just disappeared! It just disappeared! It just disappeared!

The belt means alot to me. And hey baby, you'll be remembered for the rest of my life.

Now, time to move on.

Adultery Issues Aside

I overheard my mom talking to her friend on the phone: "When a man loves another woman, he wun fuck care who you go off with."

First time I hear her utter the F word. She actually sounded quite cute.

Happy New Year

In the Year of the Pig, those born in the year of the Monkey will have better luck as compared to the previous year.

Apparantly not. Within the fourth hour of this new year, I slipped and fell down in my living room. Literally "luo di kai hua". If I recall correctly, I then limped up the stairs in my very drunken state [sleep walking] to find my room locked. So basically access was denied to my two poor cocker spaniels, my wallet and my mobile phone.

I hate to whine during the first day of the new year but I have been in pain the whole day. Decided not to go for mahjong - sure lose one. Furthermore did I mention that my elbow is sprained in the process. Tonight can only dance with my right hand and right leg liao.
