Mary Poppins!

C6 has had a fascination with Mary Poppins for awhile now. I had forgotten how much I loved this movie!

Dick van Dyke's character Bert was one of my first 'boyfriends' - I loved his 'exotic accent' and crazy dancemoves. Rowr! My other boyfriends were Willie Wonka and Mickey Mouse. I was happy to find that my friend Lees was/is as enamored with Willie Wonka as I was/am! Of course we're talkin' 'bout the Gene Wilder Wonka, duh. What's not to love about a purple-jacketed, top hat-wearing dude who owns a candy factory??? And Mickey Mouse? Hm, not exactly sure what I saw in that rodent, but I remember liking his ears. Like, a lot. When I was about 4 years old, if you asked me what my favorite color was, I'd've replied "Black". And if you asked me why, I would've told you that I liked black because Mickey Mouse's ears were black. Jump ahead to the mid-late '80's, when I wore "black on the outside, cuz black is how I feel on the inside." But I digress...

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is one of C6's nicknames.


This is our favorite part. This has kind of a long intro on it, but it is the dancin' penguins scene. YES!


This is C6's 'joke' - "Mary...(pauses dramatically, smiles, turns his head ever so slightly in a 'wait for it' expression)...POOPins!"

I recently watched this too! I love love love this movie! I sang along to all the songs and was actually crying & singing to "Feed The Birds" to Pibb's horrified delight.
