Minnie's to-do list, found on Costanza13's Flickr stream
oes your to-do list look anything like this? If so, then honey, you need to get out more often!!
This week, our friend Eliyanna joins us for a feminist critique of Minnie Mouse’s Country House, with its diet cookies and Cosmousepolitan and all.
She also pointed us to the Minnie’s Country House page at Researching Disney History: Observations, a web site that is now on Jennifer’s must-read list.

Oh, and about that song Femininity…while Lisa is already a font of Haley Mills knowledge, Jennifer really must watch Summer Magic, because she is curious how it all plays out. How much is tongue-in-cheek, and how much is for real? This YouTube clip gives some context, but clearly she needs more.
Sigh….as if the Netflix queue wasn’t already long enough, what with all those gory Japanese thrillers and all! At least there is no need to watch tear-jerkers, like Old Yeller or Grave of the Fireflies.
And oh yeah, about that funky boogie train? If you have no idea what Jennifer and the Wachamacallit were talking about, Broke Hoedown’s got you covered.
(And say, did anybody else just lose the game?)
UPDATE: Lisa here – i have never even heard that crazy song! Love the video – on the tip of goofy femininity, I thought I’d throw Ann-Margret into the mix too!! Here’s hoping Minnie and Daisey are also having as much fun with it as Ann and Hayley!! 🙂
