I’m staying with some friends of my parents over break, and the other night they reminded me of my childhood fascination with Ursula from the Disney “Little Mermaid.” 

I have no memory of the fixation, but I certainly found find her compelling. Remind you of anyone we know?

Maybe this all has something to do with the fact that this painting makes me happy.

I did some research, and apparently the Disney Ursula was based on the drag queen “Divine,” a John Waters regular.

Perfect. Now that’s just what I call tasteful for four year olds. Thanks for that, Walt Disney. 

On the upside, Pat Carroll did the voice work.

Which reminds me: did I mention the time at A.’s this summer that I watched “Murder She Wrote” for the first time in more than a decade and hated it? I was shattered.
