If Hannibal Was Hired for Window Displays at Disney World

We had a lot of fun during our trip to Disney World. I’ve gathered some terrible and stupid pictures to share with you. Here we go:

We stayed at the Polynesian, which has extremely polite trash cans:

This thing loves refuse, and wants yours inside it.

I think my favorite animatronic character of all the rides is this fabulously groovy disco scientist on Spaceship Earth:

She's got it going on, both scientifically and fashion-wise.

On our final day we dropped by Downtown Disney (if you panic because you hadn’t been able to find any Disney Merchandise in the parks, you can come here and get some, too), where I found this disturbing scene (if you can’t tell from the glare, these are princess dresses MADE OF PRINCESSES):

Has anyone else been watching Hannibal? Doesn’t this look like something that could be on that show? In particular, the murderer who was working on a “color palette”? Can’t you just imagine someone whistling creepily to themselves while they made this, maybe repeating “my pretty dolls, my pretty dolls” to themselves over and over? Just me?

Lastly, because it’s the most natural change of subject, here’s a picture of baby as Aurora. I really don’t subscribe to “pink princess pretty girly girl” stuff. I’m not crazy about how  gender-specific specific baby items have become. However, when your five year old niece asks for a Sleeping Beauty dress from Santa Claus and hopes that Lydia has one to match, well, then, by golly:

She’s drooling in this picture, which I think makes her more authentic character-wise because you know Sleeping Beauty’s pillow case was nasty with sleep drool.

And while I still DON’T embrace pretty pretty pink for all girls all the time, damned if she didn’t look cute. And, now that she’s being constantly mistaken for a boy, I have to steel myself to fight the power and not feel like I have to always dress her like this. Disney World does weird things to me.

  1. “Can’t you just imagine someone whistling creepily to themselves while they made this, maybe repeating ‘my pretty dolls, my pretty dolls’ to themselves over and over? Just me?”

    Not just you. I imagine people doing things like this ALL THE TIME.

    But then again, I watch way too much “Criminal Minds.” Everyone’s a serial killer. EVERYONE.

  2. Dress made out of dolls? Yes, you know that has happened in somebody’s basement. And now I’m picturing lotioned up princesses deep in pits in basements all over Virginia. Yep.

  3. Is that disco scientist wearing a bright yellow body suit under that nifty plaid skirt and white lab coat? Because her shirt matches her tights.

    Lydia is gorgeous. I’m sure she has the panache to wear any colour and look good.
