Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Today’s question is:

If you had to be one of the 7 dwarfs, which one would you be and why?

There’s no question about it, I’d be Sleepy. Why? Because I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in the last 5 years.

I just had a thought, if you’d like to post your own version of Aloha Friday at your blog next week, let me know and maybe we could all link together. All you would need to do is write a simple post and ask a question for your readers to answer. Then we could all go around and visit each other. If there’s enough interest, I’ll put up a Mr. Linky next week. It would be fun to see what kind of questions you all come up with!

The following video is the song Nightbird by Mackey Feary of Kalapana. If you were on the islands in the 80′s, you will definitely remember this song.

    Well, I feel like I am already Dopey so I will pick Happy!

    Shannon says:

    I’d be happy. Because people are always asking me “What’s wrong” when nothing is wrong. I guess I don’t have a very happy disposition… so I’d like to be Happy Dwarf.

    (Yes, I’m feeling *deep* this morning!)

    Is there a Shop-py Dwarf? How about Dorky? ;) Just kidding, I think I would be Grumpy (Needs Some Coffee). :D

    I love your Aloha Friday Idea!

    I’m a mixture. I’d have to be Happy and Dopey. I know I’m a bit of an airhead, but I don’t ever let it bother me. I’ve just learned to smile right through my mistakes, no matter how stupid they are! :)

    Happy Aloha Friday!

    I guess I’d be bashful. I’ve always been on the shy side.

    I think I would be sleepy – I can sleep anytime. Sometimes, when I shouldn’t (driving, at work, etc). I read that some of the rejected names for the dwarfs were: Blabby, Jumpy, Shifty, Snoopy, Scrappy, Cranky, Dirty, Awful, Silly, Daffy, Flabby, Jaunty, Biggo Ego, Chesty, Baldy, Gabby, Nifty, Sniffy, Burpy, Scaredy, Lazy, Puffy, Dizzy, Stuffy, Gassy, Tubby, Mr. Shy, Loser, Flaunty, Hairy and Grabby. If we used those, then I think I’d be Burpy, Gassy or Daffy, or maybe Flabby.

    Is there a dwarf named “busy”? ha ha – if so, you KNOW I would be that one. So, for now I’ll settle for sleepy cause with all my busy-ness, I’m darned tired!!!

    I think I’d be Sleepy right along with you. Especially today! I woke up way before I needed to and couldn’t go back to sleep, so now I’m defiinitely Sleepy.

    I’d love to play along with Aloha Friday! Count me in. Would that make us honorary Hawaiians? ;)

    If I’m allowed to chose a rejected dwarf name — which I just discovered in my quest to learn all seven original dwarfs names, since I’m apparently out of touch with my Disney history — I would choose Gabby.

    My husband would echo my selection.

    And while I wasn’t on the islands in the ’80s, the song still made me smile. Seems perfect for a sunset dinner.

    Melissa says:

    Okay… I’m probably Sleepy or Grumpy in real life… but if I had to pick who I’d WANT to be, well, that’s different! Then I’d pick Happy :)
    I like the Aloha Friday idea! I’m game!

    Kim says:

    Huhm…I’d be…Blinky ’cause that’s exactly what my mind does when I go to write a good comment. (Wait a minute, Blinky was on Mrs. Pac Man) Okay, I’d choose to be Happy!
    Aloha Fridays-good idea! I’d try that out, even though I’m fairly new to the blog-o-sphere!

    Jill says:

    I’d be Sleepy too. Especially these days. If I get a couple good nights of sleep, it’s a good week for me. I guess it’s just my body’s way of getting me ready for Spike’s arrival and the sleepless nights he’ll bring with him!

    I think I would be Doc! In charge of everyone. LOL!

    First I must say I love what “JessicaK” said. I fit her comment all too well.
    I, like “Southern Girl” would love to participate in Aloha Friday. Being an Honorary Hawaiian sounds pretty good too! Big Smile…I guess that makes me “Happy”.

    I LOVED KALAPANA!!!

    (no one has heard of them here in the east coast, but they were definitely popular in the philippines!)

    I loved the song HURT.

    i also loved this very song you posted.

    wow, very unusual to find someone else who actually knew and liked them.

    yay.
