Guess Where I Am!

I am in Rome, where I am enjoying pizza, old buildings, and a beautiful language. I am here for two more days before heading to Greece. However, I will be back in Rome in a week. 

Stay tune for stories of my adventures.

Adventure Ireland

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Once upon a time in 2007, this princess went to Ireland. Ireland is a place where magic is real and it just feels holy. I am convinced the Irish are the nicest people anywhere. Plus the land is greener then green.

The first night I couldn't sleep, I was just so excited. At five in the morning, I wondered outside and ended up sitting outside surrounded by a hundred black birds. It was surreal and so peaceful.

The stone walls, the cliff, and the castles were amazing. It just added to the amazing beauty of the country.

 I got to kiss the Blarney Stone, which was an adventure. I don't like touching things other people touched nor do I like being held upside down. But somehow it happened.

Galway Cathedral is gorgeous. I was lucky enough to walk into the church while someone was practicing the organ. It was amazing.

My advice for Ireland. Enjoy the pubs, the dancing, and the music. It is just fun. Irish Coffees = yummy.
Stay at a Bed and Breakfast.

The entire trip was just amazing but one thing will forever be remember about my trip. The sheep. They were everywhere.

 One day we stopped on the side of the road to look at the view. There were a bunch of people around, including a man and his little sheep. I was excited and trotted over there to say hello. I looked at his sheep wondering if they feel like clouds.

The man must have guessed what I was thinking because he asked, "Do wanted to hold a sheep?"

 I replied quickly, "No."

That didn't matter. He made up his mind and was determined that I was going to hold a sheep. He quickly picked up a sheep and tossed it at me. I caught it, but was feeling a bit shaky having a mini sheep thrown at me. My mother managed to get a photo a second after it happened, while I was still trying to figure out what was going on.

People who saw the event were staring, guess seeing a sheep thrown at people is not a normal event. I must be one of the lucky ones.

What did I learn from this adventure?
Sheep are not soft. They do not feel fluffy or cloud like. Sheep are also very docile. The sheep just let me hold it and didn't seem phased by being passed so suddenly.

To remember the occasion, I bought myself a little stuff animal sheep. I named it Gregory McCotton and he sings a song when his ear is pressed. Every so often, in the middle of the night, he will get the urge to sing. Whenever this happens, I smile and remember my trip to Ireland.

What It Means To Be A Princess Part One

Monday, May 16, 2011

To be a princess you have to be genuinely nice to everyone. I mean everyone. 



Each person has something they can teach you. 

You want your public to support you

Being nice makes you happy

People will be nice in return

A little kindness can save somebody's day

Princess Gossip

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Being a princess means being nice to everyone. However, some people really make that difficult. One person in particular has pushed me to break the princess code.  This person is Princess Peach.

Don't get used to this quality of art
Princess Peach is an idoit. She keeps getting kidnapped by browser. Plus when she is playing mario party she is horrible. When she is on your team, she will be awful on purpose just to make you lose. If she is not on your team, I am convinced she cheats.

Plus Princess Peach stole Cinderella's dress and dyed it pink. 

If you have more dirt on Princess Peach or if you know anything redeeming about her, let me know

I Am Certainly A Disney Princess

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

I have been busy analyzing data and I have found something truly stunning. Not a single Disney Princess owns a horse. Guess What! I don't own a horse. That must mean that I am Disney Princess.

This is stunning data. Almost every Disney Princess movie has a horse, one princess must of owned a horse. But no. They are all horseless.

In Snow White, the Prince rode a horse.

In Sleeping Beauty, Samson was Prince Philip's horse

In Beauty and The Beast, Belle's Father owns Philip

In Tangled, Maximus belongs to the lead guard

In my life, the horse belongs to the farm across the street.

Really Disney?

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Dear Disney  (well Disney Movie Rewards),

I just reached my one year anniversary with you a couple of days ago. And you know what you try to give me?  Eight Below, Chicken Little, or The Rookie.

Really Disney? Thats how much the last year meant to you! Its like you don't even know me!  I'm a Princess girl. If you can't give me anything princess related. How about a poster for my wall from Prince of Persia? Alice? Pooh?

Disney. I am disappointed in you. This is supposed to be relationship but it just feels like I'm one in a million.

I am deeply hurt, but I still love you,

Marie Elizabeth

This Princess Did A Good Thing Today (The Story Of ME Donating Blood)

Monday, May 2, 2011

There are not many times in my life where I can say really changed some ones life, but today I did. I voluntarily left my fantasy world of books, movies, and the waves to let a stranger stick me with a needle. twice.

 I have never given blood before, although I have tried countless times. I usually get disqualified by weight. When I do weigh enough, my iron is too low. But today, they me let give blood.

I didn't know what to expect besides the dreaded finger prick. Then maybe getting told my iron is to low. But today they lady looked at me and said your iron just passed. Leading to more tests to past. They take your temperature and use the cuff thing that gets super puffy. They also ask a billion questions about where you have traveled to.

Then they list everything that can happen to you. Did you know what can happen to you if you give blood? Convulsions. I didn't know what they were. The nurse had to explained it to me. Its passing out and having a mini seizure. Are you sure you want to give blood? Yes.

Yippee I passed and they walked me to a bed, colored my arm yellow and poked another whole in my body and blood went into a plastic bag and went off to be sorted somewhere else.

So I could save up to three lives today and maybe feed a hungry vampire. Either way I did something good.

What have you done today?
