nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.
I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.
Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.
When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.
NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.
The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.
This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is.
And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her.
What a good movie.
Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.
It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.
Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.
And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.
What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.
MAYBE if u didn’t want ur son to EAT poeple u shouldnt have named him something that rhymes with cannibal u should have name him hegetarian or something
Get paid by sharing your thoughts (or donate them to charity), totally your choice!
Joining is completely free, although
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE this is pretty muchlimited to US Residents only.
TIP: AND SIGN UP AS A MALE (Even if you’re a girl)
Trust me, you’ll get more surveys with that trick = more money.
Though you, yeah, can still sign up but you won’t be able to do much surveys.
Start earning now!
Try this other panel, too, if you want:
Oh my god, I made a “male” account & started seeing shitloads of surveys compared to what I had on my actual account, awesome tip! Wish I found out about that sooner :/
As for experience with this panel, I highly recommend this paid survey site, although honestly if you’re not from the US, dont’ bother. You won’t be even eligible to most (if not all) survey opportunities.
But they DO pay. Just look for reviews if you want some proof, they’ve been around for quite a long time & they are quite a reputable company.
I signed up for this though I wasn’t a US resident & I can prove that it’s absolutely useless if you aren’t so don’t bother.
One of the absolute few paid survey sites that aren’t a scam.
You have to be 18+ to be eligible for payment, I believe.
Though I just put 18 as my age despite being 16 & got paid anyways haha
BTW, rewards: Gift cards or cash to your paypal account.
1000 points is $10
The cheapest thing you can buy/give charity to is 1000 points. So you have to have at least 1000 points to cash out.
There is cash to paypal (which takes 1-3 weeks to get into your account), you can get Visa gift cards (4-6 weeks), e-gift cards to Amazon and itunes (1-3 days), and the charities are: Trees for the Future, Big Brother and Sisters, Unicef, Ronald McDonald House, Doctors without Borders, Habitat for Humanity, Nature Conservancy, Red Cross, American Cancer Society, and American Heart Association.
I joined yesterday as a male. I did the first 3 surveys which are a getting to know you, and then today I answered 1 survey (working on my second) for 90 points, and then I had 2 other surveys I didn’t qualify for, but you still get 5 points for those, for your time.
I currently have a 200 point survey sitting in my queue that I’m hoping I qualify for.
So yeah, totally sign up as male, and vary the age a bit. They don’t need 1,000,000 mid-20 dudes.
fun fact I’m a female and I got chosen to test nail polishes and got to keep them
this website gave me candy to try out for their surveys!!
DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
SHES VOICED BY RIHANNA
i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills
Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide.
Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.
My wife and I have actually had very extensive conversations about Foxface. Specifically, my argument is that Foxface is in love with Katniss, or had another reason to want her to win, or survive.
Foxface excels in subtlety and observational awareness, she is always aware of where the other players in the game are, but when ever Katniss is in trouble, Foxface shows up to show her the way. She shows Katniss how to bypass the mines at the food cache. She shows Katniss that she can make it to the “feast” and back out safely.
But there’s a question. Why would Foxface steal a handful of berries from Peeta? She was hungry? But she could just harvest her own berries, without needing to potentially reveal herself. I find it hard to believe Foxface would steal 20 berries, when Peeta just showed her what the bush looks like. So the argument is, she wanted to kill herself, to save Katniss, and Peeta (since she knows two can survive). But why not just go eat her own berries? At any point during this whole thing?
My argument is that she ate Peeta’s berries for two reasons. One, she wanted to show Peeta that the berries were poisonous, because she didn’t want Katniss to lose him. And, Two. She wanted Katniss to know, or have the opportunity to deduce, that Foxface was in love with her. There’s any number of ways she could kill herself, but she did it publicly, revealing that she’s not only been following Katniss and Peeta, but to put the question in her mind: Why steal 20 berries from Peeta?
This is a fascinating theory.
