Little Mermaid, yippee!

Back in June, I was THRILLED to interview Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in “The Little Mermaid.” We talked for close to an hour, then I wrote a story about her for our website. (Here’s my story.)

Interviewing her and talking about the movie made me want to watch it, so five friends and I gathered one evening last month for a mermaid party. It was SO MUCH FUN. We had food like shrimp, Goldfish, sea blue punch and “crab.” Kristy bought Disney princess plates and cups.

It was SO fun, in fact, that we decided to watch some other Disney movies as a group. Next weekend, we’re watching “Aladdin.”

Here are some quotes from our movie viewing, along with some pictures.

Kristy: “King Triton is ripped.”

Me: "I think of this movie every time I pick the Arial font on my Word documents."
