I've had a rough week already & it's about to get a bit worse. So of course, I spent yesterday stress & comfort eating and then a bit of retail therapy. And then today, I've spent the morning looking at mermaids, because duh. Mermaids are the best. So I'd like to share some Mermaid-inspired lists with you guys today in hopes that mermaids brighten up all of our week!
Mermaid films: (a few of the better ones) + Queen of the Sea (1918), Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948), Hook (1991), Peter Pan (1953), Peter Pan (2003), The Little Mermaid (1989). Mermaid stories: +Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid" + Oscar Wilde's "The Fisherman and his Soul" + H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" Mermaid mixes: + What a Wicked Game + Mermaids + Penny the Mermaid
Are you a mermaid? +You like taking long baths or showers. +You take care of your hair & take pride in it. + You love going to the beach or ocean or swimming in general. +You like pink, blue, green, or gold. + Sequins and glitter are holy to you. +Your thighs touch.
(If 3 or more of these are true for you, you're probably a mermaid. YAY!)
Some mermaid names: (girl names) +Cordelia, sea jewel + Marina, sea maiden + Meredith, protector of the sea + Nerin, one from the sea + Nerissa, daughter of the sea
(boy names) + Ervin, friend of the sea + Irvin, lover of the sea + Merrick, ruler of the sea + Morven, child of the sea + Zale, sea strength
Are you feeling better now? Because I know I am. I've come to the conclusion that I'm for sure a mermaid & that mermaids are the best. :) But what about you? What's your favorite mermaid film, story or song? And did you end up being a mermaid too? :3
