Cruella de Vil

1) In the original animated 101 Dalmations, this song is written by Roger, who gets his best ideas at the piano. Where do you feel most creative? driving--I love to drive aimlessly when I have a problem to solve
2) His piano is tucked away in a crowded attic. Does your home have an attic? If so, what do you keep up there? I have the only access to the apartment house's attic but I don't go up there
3) The inspiration for this song is his wife's old school chum, the very wealthy and very mean Cruella de Vil. Have you ever found you couldn't stand one of your spouse's or lover's friends? no, for the most part they became my friends
4) Make no mistake, Cruella is a very bad lady. The American Film Institute named her #38 on their 100 Greatest Villains list. Tell us another nasty movie character who comes to mind. The first one that comes to mind is Scar from The Lion King
5) Cruella wanted to skin sweet little Dalmation puppies and make a coat. (We told you she was bad.) As winter wears on, could you use a new coat (though not one made from puppy fur!)? no, I have about six jackets and coats and I rotate through them so I don't wear them out too soon

6) This song was written by Mel Leven, who did both words and music. Do you think you'd be more successful as a lyricist (words) or composer (music)? lyricist

7) 1961 was a big year for Disney. In addition to this animated movie, they had a hit with The Parent Trap, about twins who are reunited at summer camp. Approx. 1 in every 250 births results in twins. Are there any twins in your family? I have twin cousins

8) Also in 1961, IBM introduced the Selectric typewriter. Amazon and Walmart both still sell typewriters. Do you own one? I love typing on a typewriter! I don't own one because I was unable to get a new ribbon for mine

9) Random question: When is the last time you took a nap? I might take one today!

I hope you get that nap in. I am not sure I can still get ribbon for my old electric typewriter. I haven't looked in ages.

#9 I took a nap after breakfast, but I was up since 3.
#5 Great idea, I usually just wear the same parka all the time and use the others for special occasions.

I hope you get your nap. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

You and your car are like a cowgirl and her horse.

I bet you thought of Scar because we're talking animated Disney.
