More stuff:


  1. Wow such a great discussion. Though the group of you make me feel so unobservant.

  2. Thanks, Jeff! It is easy to be observant when you have five people in the discussion. It all builds in conversation somehow ... :-)

  3. Great discussion except where is Princess Leia? Now that she has become a Disney princess, she must rate, right?

  4. I was also wondering about the "ethnic" Disney heroines: Mulan, Pocahontas, and Jasmine (Alladin)...they all seem much more self-sufficient, self-aware, and feisty than most of the Disney "girls".
