I forgot to add another crucial element of my shopping trip today. While I was at Target I picked up Cinderella on DVD. It came out today, and with Disney's draconian video release rules, I usually make sure to pick one up early on if it's a movie I want. Not to mention that dvds are usually cheaper the first week they're out.

Turns out I picked up the last one in the store. The main "Cinderella" display was empty, so I walked back to the "new releases" rack, and there were 2 left. The lady next to me took one and I took the other. This was at noon! Either they didn't order enough, or Cinderella is a cult classic in ways I never heard of.

Of course it is my favorite Disney movie. Sleeping Beauty is my favorite of the Princesses, but Cinderella is my favorite Disney movie, followed closely by Robin Hood and Lady and the Tramp. So I was SUPER HAPPY to pick one up.

I suspect there were more in crates in the back, but the dude in the video department was telling people to try again later or tomorrow, so they were probably still in the boxes.

Oh, and the ones at Target come with a glass slipper charm... (which sadly enough is not glass).

ack! Now I have little mice singing in my head, "Cinderelly, Cinderelly, Day and Night it's Cinderelly..." I love that movie.

Oh, I couldn't make it yesterday with all the rain there was here, but I'll definitely go get it tonight. Hopefully I'll find one with the little charm. =)
I hate their stupid DVD release rules, BTW. And they don't update their on-line release calendar often enough. UGH!
