If you are the person who made plans in the first place, assume said plans are still happening.
Don’t cancel them and make me text and try to call you multiple times to figure out what’s going on.
If I ask you “So aren’t we going?” don’t respond with “Oh, you still want to do that?”
If something comes up and you have to cancel, let me know ASAP. No, I don’t have anything better to do because I have no life, but you’ll at least spare me from sitting around all day putting off any little thing because I’m waiting for you.
My mom recently bought a fuzzy pink-and-white striped sweater that she’s absolutely in love with. It looks okay, but sort of dorky, like when your grandma dresses like a little girl (because all grandmas are contractually obligated to dress like little girls at least fifty percent of the time).
Today I was rereading part of a story I wrote months ago, and I described the exact sweater my mom bought in context of something a grandma wears when she dresses like a little girl.
Mushu got one of the ancestors beheaded (and doesn’t care).
Mushu murdered the Great Stone Dragon (although not entirely his fault, because why didn’t that guy wake up?)
How the heck does the comb work? Is it 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional? Because it lays flat on the nightstand, but when it’s in her hair it looks like the flower’s laying across the bun, not standing straight up.
When Mushu’s making his grand entrance, why don’t his eyes cast shadows?
Mulan covering her chest after Mushu’s “I can see straight through your armor” line.
The “did they send me daughters when I asked for sons?” line. (And yes, yes they did. You’re welcome.)
The entire bathing scene. I don’t have any brothers so I didn’t know male anatomy was any different until after puberty.
Shan Yu murdering one of the two messengers (I always liked the line, but never knew what it meant, even with the ominous arrow pull).
Shan Yu basically saying “Let’s go to that village and kill the little girl who owns this doll.”
During Yao’s dream in “Girl Worth Fighting For,” why couldn’t we see the back of his robe through the gaping wound in his chest? I didn’t mind that he had a gaping wound in his chest, but we saw the back of his robe before he turned around. What happened to it?
The girls in the rice paddy ‘flirting’ with Ping. I got that they were juxtaposing Mulan with the other, normal, girls, but I didn’t get that they thought ‘he’ was blushing because ‘he’ was attracted to them.
That the doll in the village signified that its owner and the rest of the villagers had been killed. In my mind, they’d always just run away (though I did understand the helmet).
While I understood that Shang was honoring his father by propping his sword in the snow and hanging the helmet on it, it always confused me that he would leave a perfectly good sword behind. I mean, he’s going off to imminent battle with the Huns, who have just beaten a superior force. I’d think he’d want all the weapons he could.
Mulan gets the idea to start the avalanche after seeing the mountain’s reflection in her sword. Reflection. It’s a theme in the movie.
How did Shang figure out she was a girl after she was treated for a wound to the chest?
How did pulling down her hair reveal for sure she was a girl to the rest of the army? They have identical buns (except Chien Po, but that’s a different story), so their hair must all be similar lengths.
Again, Shang leaves behind a perfectly good sword. And a horse. There were only three horses in that entire army, and he just leaves one of them behind with the girl he technically should have killed.
How did the Huns get into the dragon before being noticed? That mostly stemmed from my belief that the mountain scene took place a maximum of five minutes before the parade scene, so I didn’t think they’d have time to do it.
Even if the men in the crowd listened to Mulan and believed her, what the heck were they going to do about it anyway?
Why did the men have fruit in their clothes? (I now understand it was to imitate breasts.)
WHY DID YAO HAVE AN ORANGE AND BANANA IN HIS CLOTHES? IN WHAT WAY DOES A BANANA IMITATE BREASTS? (This one still puzzles me.)
"Sign me up for the next war!" and "Would you like to stay forever?"

I’ve been watching the old Pokemon seasons, and I just had to take a moment to talk about how amazing Zoey is. She’s Dawn’s main rival in the Sinnoh contests, and I really wish we saw more of her.
First off, when she dresses up for the contests, she rarely wears a dress. Off hand, I’m pretty sure she only wore one to the Grand Festival, and even then, it could also be called a robe. Her outfits are definitely feminine but not girly, and that’s a rare balance to strike.
Second off, she’s such a well-balanced person. She’s always willing to offer Dawn some advice or a helping hand. Unlike most of the rivals in the series, she never gets petty or mean. Yes, she wants to win, but she wants to know everyone else tried their best. It’s such a refreshing change from the likes of Drew, who looked down on everyone else, and Harley, who devolved into a walking gay stereotype after a few episodes.
She shines so brightly as a coordinator and friend. I think I’ve already made it clear that the series needs to stop following Ash. I think we need to follow Zoey for a while. If nothing else, we need more characters like her.
