Name that Toon

Lori told me recently that she can't "stump the chump," as the Car Talk guys like to challenge. But she's been trying.

Turns out Ittbybit has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of all things movie-related ... (hmmmm I wonder where she got THAT from?) and if you hum a few bars of any tune on the soundtrack she can recite the title of the movie.

For instance:

"La, la, la ... Baby of mine ... "

"DUMBO!"

*****

"Just a spoonful of sugar ..."

"MARY POPPINS!"

*****

"Why am I such a misfit? I am not just a nit-wit ..."

"RUDOLPH, THE RED-NOSED REINDEER!"

*****

"Who can make a sunrise ... "

"WILLY WONKA"

*****

"So this is love ..."

"CINDERELLA!"

*****

"Some day my prince will come ..."

"SNOW WHITE!"


You do realize what this means, don't you?

We need to get out more.

It means you need to harness her mad skillz for financial gain and put her on Jeopardy.

Wow that's awesome. When I was a kid I could name the actors who did voice overs and I ended up in advertising. So maybe she'll end up a famous film composer? Or maybe just a waitress in a Sunset Strip karaoke bar.

I looked at your photo site first and just had to comment about the new pic’s, even though you did not blog about them… “Product placement” excellent satire… “that’s a K… B-O-O-K”, almost real, with wonderful composition, we do know she is helping with mom’s creativity and doing a good job of it… But a “teacup for amah” cinches it…It is beautiful. Look at Annabel’s intensity of concentration on her project, captured in the twinkle of and eye… and her eyelashes… that’s good stuff.
Like a star on break… or relative to a Shirley Temple behind the scenes shot, where we again realize that she is still… just a little girl enjoying her day with her family… PRICELESS!

As for the stump the chump game, she has watched those programs a hundred thousand times and I would think her thoughts are…. MOM, I could name that tune in “0” notes… just by looking in your eyes, we are one in the same, for now… and forever.
