So Mary just can not get a break. I’ve mentioned before:
Well it gets worse.
So Mrs. Bennet has been freaking out about meeting Mr. Bingley, but Mr. Bennet hasn’t done so. She is extremely out of sorts, having palpatations, etc. Mr. Bennet is amused and turns to Mary and tells her:
“What say you, Mary? For you are a young lady of deep reflection, I know, ad read great books and make extracts.”
Of course the only time she is asked for her opinion, nothing can come to mind.
“Mary wished to say something sensible, but knew not how.”
Gee dad thanks for putting me on the spot.
Then of course her dad skips over her and moves on to something else.
Poor girl, I hate it when that happens. It’s like your mind has a total brain fart and you can’t think of anything, your mind is just blank.
And then Mary comes off horribly.
Poor, poor, poor girl. I mean she’s just as bad as Leonardo Dicaprio
So I haven’t really talked a lot about my family on here. I tend to try and stay away from making posts about people I know as if they ever read this I don’t want them getting upset with me. So I have two older siblings, Paige and Holly. Now I love Sleeping Beauty a lot, in fact Aurora is my favorite princess (second to Princess Leia). I wanted to be her (and was for two Halloweens) and used to act it out every year. Now I don’t know if my sister Paige was trying to be mean to me or create a bond between the three of us girls (when I was a little girl I always thought it was the first one), but she would tell me that I couldn’t be Aurora I had to be Merryweather. Paige was to be the leader Flora, Holly Fauna, and I had to be Merryweather. Now as a kid I hadn’t having to be be her, but you know what, the older I get the more I realize what an awesome character she is. She is smart, caring, sassy, and just plain hilarious. And she sounds just like me.
Like wanting to turn the people you hate into a toad? I agree, let’s take them out.
She’s not afraid to speak her mind and give her opinion on things, although sometimes it bites her in the butt.
Plus you gotta love Merryweather for the fact that she’s the smartest of the three fairies. First of all she saves Aurora’s life.
And then saves it again
“Flora: I’ll turn her into a flower.
Flora: [chuckles] No, no, dear. The princess.
Fauna: Oh, she’d make a lovely flower.
Flora: Don’t you see? A flower can’t prick its finger.
Merryweather: It hasn’t any.
Fauna: That’s right.
Flora: She’ll be perfectly safe. Merryweather: Until Maleficent sends a frost.
Flora: [laughs, then stops abruptly] Yes… oh dear.”
Plus she is the only one who actually knows how to do any thing without her wand.
[preparing for Aurora’s birthday party]
Merryweather: But, I never baked a *fancy* cake.
Flora: Oh, you won’t have to, dear!
Fauna: *I’m* going to bake the cake!
Flora: Oh, she’s always wanted to, dear, and this is her last chance.
Merryweather: [doubtfully] Well…
Fauna: I’m going to make it 15 layers with pink and blue forget-me-nots.
Fauna: And *I’m* making the dress.
Merryweather: But you can’t sew! And she’s *never* cooked!”
Yep Merryweather’s been doing it all.
Plus Merryweather doesn’t care whether or not Aurora marries a prince, she just wants her to be happy.
“Merryweather: [irked] Ooh, I don’t see why she has to marry any old… prince!”
So when I did Horrorfest, I asked you all to vote on what was your favorite movie review. Well, I’m asking you all again. I know this might be a little annoying, but I like to know what you all think about these posts; I want to make this a better site for you. If you want to read the posts from the beginning, start here.
