Disney’s Wayward Idols

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
-Walt Disney

Disney is a symbol of family values, good morals, and where dreams come true.
 Or is it?
Here’s a little something about some of Disney’s squeaky-clean little darlings:

 Was it Britney Spears dream to go from mousekateer to sexpot psycho in rehab? I think not.

 Lindsay Lohan was that sweet girl from movies like the Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. As a little girl, did she fancy the idea of seeing a jail cell from the inside?

 Christina Aguilera's fantasy must have come true when she became an exhibitionist and posed nude.

 Let’s not forget about Miley Cyrus and her alter ego Hannah Montanna. Did she aspire to being voted worst celebrety influence two years in a row?

How proud the people at Disney must feel for creating such well bred role models for our children.

Is Annette Funicello the only survivor of Disney stardom? 

Why can’t the Disney stars keep their clothes on? I realize that these people are not children anymore and they need to grow up. To prove it, I grew up and avoided porn, drugs, and jail time. I just stole my parent’s car, picked up my friends and went shopping.
It seems to me that Disney has created one poison apple after another. They need to open a new theme park called Recovery Island and fix what they have broken. Rehab Mountain could be the main attraction. This is where you ride on a rollercoaster for days while a therapist delves into your self-destructive behavior and blames it on your parents. After this, you can go to the castle and play sex-addiction-dwarf-hop followed by This is Your Life with Charlie Sheen at the haunted house. At the end of your stay, there will be fireworks and a parade led by Mickey himself doing Daisy Duck.

Disney- The happiest place on earth.

 All my life I wanted to be somebody. Now I see I should have been more specific.
- Jane Wagner

1) Recently I posted a question to Cafe Mom's "Would you rather have your in-laws visit for a week or clean the bathroom?"  due to the impending visit of my father-in-law. Here are some of the answers I got: 
  • I'd rather  LICK THE TOILET BOWL CLEAN  than house them for a week!
  • No question..bathroom .. give me 50 in a nursing home and I would have a smile on my face.
  • I'd rather clean a men's room at a truck stop.
  • I'd rather clean port-a-potties at a state fair.
 The list went on and my feelings were validated. It's such a good feeling when you know you're not alone.

2)I would leave my husband for George Clooney. I am still waiting for him to call and take me away. 

3) I hate schedules but, I am known as the Momster in my house for keeping everyone else on theirs.  

4) Humor gets me through life!

5) After eight years of living in the same house I am still trying to teach my husband where the towels go. Maybe I should draw him a map.

6) This year I will be turning 50. There is a younger person inside me wondering 
   what happened.    
7) I love my family!

     APRIL 2, 2011

      Today is not my usual type of post because there is nothing funny about Autism.

    On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.

    " Be the change you wish to see in the world"
     -Mahatma Gandhi

    What does this mean?

    Well it depends on whom you are talking to. Some might extract the definition that they have to rearrange their daily tasks to be more health- conscious or earth friendly. Others may pick up the implication that they need to do something big to change the way contrasting commonalities think; religion or political affiliation is a reoccurring exemplar. However, a vast majority seem to overlook Gandhi's simplistic meaning because of the constant need of a "deeper meaning." The immensity of the deed is not relevant in order to fabricate an influential chain of reactions.

    Autism affects 1 in every 110 children. An estimated 1.5 million individuals in the U.S and tens of millions worldwide are affected by Autism. Government statistics suggest the prevalence rate is increasing 10-17 percent annually.

    My nephew has autism, and is positioned on the severe end of the spectrum. Autism, at a glance, is associated with impaired speech, social skills, communication, and motor movement originating from a nervous system disorder. For a more visual overview, picture a human brain as a puzzle. Each puzzle piece is absolutely necessary for the whole to function properly. With Autism, one or several puzzle pieces are missing, exerting the one individual out of 110, to see the world in a different light. There is no known cure, which is why organizations like Autism Speaks provide support for children and families as they grow and ultimately investigate a solution to the disability.

    It's easy to participate. You can help support Autism Awareness day by wearing blue clothing, light up your house with blue lights, post an article in blue on your blog, change your profile picture to the Light it up Blue logo. Be creative! Be Blue!
    Please join me by taking the pledge to LIGHT IT UP BLUE at:
    Click on the Autism Speaks  banner at the  top of the page.

    If you light it up blue for Autism Speaks and put the Autism Speaks banner on your blog drop me a note and I will mention your blog in my next post.
    If you make a donation at I will mention you on my next post.
