Here are some to start:

Quote:
-Real first name (if you are comfortable sharing):
Jessica

-Age
15

-Sex/Gender Identity
Female

-Relationship status
Single

-Location (as specific as you are comfortable being)
Rierside County, Southern California

-Religious beliefs (or lack thereof)
Agnostic. I'm not yet sure if I'm an Agnostic Theist or Agnostic Atheist, I'm just unsure but won't deny any possibilities.

-Political leanings
I don't pay much attention to politics since I don't vote yet

-Are you a vegetarian or vegan (or something else)?
Vegan for two months now

-What is the meaning behind your username?
I love Disney. I used to go everyday while my mom worked there and I knew the park inside out, including the backstage areas, from an early age. I remember saving up in Kindergarten through first grade for a Disneyland history book, and I've since bought many more books on Disneyland. When I learned to write, I also wrote in the Disney logo font, Waltograph. People ask why or call me crazy, but Disney has gotten me through so much. It got me through my parents' divorce, an awful period in my life, because Disneyland is such an escape and when I wasn't there I could read or think about it to get my mind off everything else.

-Have you ever met anyone famous?
I've seen some famous people. My favorite was seeing Jon Voight at Disneyland, narrating the Candlelight Processional on Walt Disney's birthday.

-Do you live with any companion animals?
I live with one cat, Twinkle, a calico, and two dogs, Frank, a Pug named after Frank the Pug from Men in Black, and Lady, a golden retriever cocker spaniel beagle mix, named after Lady the cocker spaniel from Lady and the Tramp.

-Where is your favorite place that you have visited?
Well, I love Disneyland, of course, but since I go there so often, I guess I'd say either England or France. I visited both on one trip and I loved all the details. Since I've been studying Disneyland theming since I could read, I love details in buildings and things, so it was overwhelmingly amazing. At the end of my trip uneven got to go to Disneyland Paris.

-What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?
Being able to feel so open and not guilty. Especially when I see farm animals and I can look at them without guilt and instead want to help them.

-With whom would you most love to have dinner?
Walt Disney

-Do you have any secret talents?
I taught myself digital art and animation at a young age. My dream is to be an Imagineer at Walt Disney Imagineering, designing attractions there, maybe doing the concept art or something, but my mom says that's silly, so I haven't drawn in a while and I'm trying to find any other talents and figure of what the what to do with my life.

-What dish/recipe can you make that knocks people's socks off?
I'm not so good at cooking yet, and my omni family won't try any of my "crazy vegan" food, but right now my favorite thing to make is banana ice cream by blending some frozen bananas and silk pure almond milk. Since it has no dairy, I share it with Lady, and sometimes Twinkle with have a little once it melts. Frank apparently thinks bananas are too healthy because he won't eat fruits or vegetables. Guess he's not a very good Pug since he's the pickiest thing I've ever seen.

-What's your favorite restaurant?
I really want to try Lazy Dog Café. I'm not sure if anyone else has had it, but it has a dog theme and they let you bring your dog to eat with you. They also have a dog wall of fame, and at the closest location to me, Temecula, my dogs have their picture up on the wall of fame. But for a restaurant I've actually been to, Elephant Bar. It was the first restaurant I went to after going vegan and the first time I'd ever tried tofu.

-What do you do to cheer yourself up when you're feeling blue?
If I could drive, I'd go to Disneyland, but since I can't, I just read about it online until I feel better. Also, I eat deliciously unhealthy food.

-What's your biggest cooking/baking disaster?
My little brother had microwave Mac n Cheese where you just add water and microwave it and the pasta comes pressure and everything in an individual bowl. He was in first grade and forgot to add the water, starting a fire and also made a big mess in the microwave. I was in the upper elementary class and was called down to clean it up for him, which sucked. It was also a small school, with a maximum of ten students per grade, so it spread around the whole school and was embarrassing. I haven't done anything disastrous that I remember, though.

-What's the one food/product, that you'd love to "veg*nize"?
Disneyland has these super giant corn dogs. The corn breading is about a quarter to half of an inch thick, and it's handmade and delicious. I wish they had a veggie dog version, but maybe they will one day since they come out with new veggie burger and tofu options all the time.

It's a tie between Percy, the Pug from Pocahontas and Lady from Lady & the Tramp. I'm biased, I love them more than the others because they're the breeds of my dogs.

Favorite color?
light blue

Quote:
Have you been to Disneyworld?
Yep, I've been there four or five times, each time I went to all four parks, and one time I also went on the Disney Cruise.

Ever been to Florida Disney?
Yep, I love Walt Disney World. I haven't been in a few years, but I've been about four or five times.

I'm watching my Enchanted DVD right now.


I live way west of you in Santa Monica. I think you and I and Heather (danakscully64) should make plans to go to Disneyland sometime soon. I haven't been there in over 15 years, so you and Heather can fill me in on what's new.


anyway...

Are you strictly a bluejeans type of girl or do you like wearing skirts and dresses?

Favorite book? Favorite movie? Favorite song/music?

Strawberry jam or orange marmalade?

Pirates or ninjas?

Do you know the lyrics to "It's a Small World" by heart?

I actually think it's better than some of the more recent Disney princess movies like Princess and the Frog or Tangled. Those two pose as Walt Disney Classics but try to twist their traditional stories in ways Walt never did with his cartoons. Enchanted is a bit different from original Disney fairytales, but it's at least unique and its own story so there's nothing to worry about ruining, and even with the modern-ness of it, it's still got some classic fairytale charm and great music.

That would be awesome!
I wouldn't have to worry about where my family are going to want to eat in the park and if there's any good veg*n options.
I actually just moved out here to Riverside County from the OC area, but I think Heather might live really close to me, too.

I like wearing skirts and dresses, too, I just don't have many of them that fit me right now. I've grown out of everything except some jeans, but now I'm sick of my jeans and have been wanting to start wearing more skirts and dresses, I guess just because it's summer and I'm sick of my current clothes. I got a really cute Mickey dress today, though, so now I at least have something different.


Quote:
Favorite book? Favorite movie? Favorite song/music?
Book: Spinning Disney's World

Movie: Hmm... I think Toy Story 3 is probably my favorite because I love everything about it and watch it all the time. But my favorite non-Pixar Disney movie is Dumbo


Song: Two Worlds (Tarzan)

Music: I only listen to Disney music.
My iPhone has a Disneyland resort album with all the songs, and I also have my Pandora set up to play Disneyland songs and songs from classic Disney movies ( I call it Walt Disney Radio
)

Move my family in a big home closer to Disneyland, spoil my dogs with treats and toys and things, buy my whole family premium passes to Disneyland so we could go everyday, and buy some art supplies and sign up for some art classes to try to get into CalArts (a college that Walt Disney created) to become an Imagineer.
If I didn't have to worry about money I could pursue my dream job without people telling me I need to worry about getting some sort of business job or something in this economy.

Do you know my sister? She's a Disney fanatic too


If you had a time machine, but could only travel to either the past or the future, which would you choose?

Would you rather have eyes made out of grapes or melon balls?

If someone were to defenestrate you from an eight story building, would you rather land on a cactus field or shattered glass?

Spring
I like occasional rain, but I also like that temperature between hot and cold, the just-right kind of feel to spring.

I have some friends I met online at Disney websites that are also very obsessed with Disney

Mushrooms! I love mushrooms. My dream dish would be a giant portabello mushroom stuffed with some mini mushrooms, maybe some sort of vegan mushroom cream sauce.

Yes, especially Magical at Disneyland. It plays during the summer, and they have Tinkerbell fly over the castle, and later in the show they also have a flying Dumbo (it's got flapping ears and is the size of a VW Bug) fly over the castle to the song "Baby of Mine" from Walt Disney's Dumbo. It's supposed to be the scene where he learns how to fly. It almost makes me cry, the song combined with him finally learning to fly like he wanted.


I've been Minnie Mouse, Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast, Stitch (I'm a big Stitch fanatic in addition to lots of the other characters), Snow White, Maleficent, Alice, Jasmine from Aladdin, Cinderella, Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, Ariel/Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, Belle, and Piglet. I think that's it.

If you could move into Disneyland, would you?

Have you ever had any cool ideas for new Disney rides?

Is mango an amazing fruit?
