Lady and the Tramp
Doesn't take much to amuse me, I guess. While soaking in a hot bath in candlelight the other night I saw Lady and the Tramp, shadow puppets made from bath fixtures on the shower wall (does that make them showdows instead of shadows?). I had noticed them before and never felt like getting out of the tub to go get the camera, and I lay there balancing the pros and cons of doing just that. Actually, I waited a bit too long to decide to drip my way through to the kitchen where the camera is kept in a drawer because by the time I returned to the bathroom the tall candle that was helping to form the shape of Lady had overflowed its well, causing hot green wax to spill onto the rim of the tub -- and in the meantime it changed the original height and direction of the light beam onto Lady. Her nose was more elongated now, making her appear more like our Standard Poodle than a Cocker Spaniel, but the Lady-effect was still discernible. I decided to go with it anyway and to post these to see if you see what I saw!
Watching this video clip today brought some real charm into an otherwise gray and gloomy Saturday. The new Pixar stuff is fantastic but you just can't beat original Walt Disney animation to lift the spirits.
