A fan favorite! This journal is a faux book titled "How To Offend Women in Five Syllables or Less" by Prince Derek as suggested by Lord Rogers in the classic 1994 animated film. Comes in three colors, navy blue, maroon, and tan. Regular price of $17.99
Q: Many fans have commented or asked about an "underdeveloped storyline" in the first film. At the beginning of the film Odette rejected Derek because he could not see that she had inner beauty. After her capture Odette is singing love songs and expected Derek to rescue her. She then marries Derek immediately after her rescue.
A: At the end of the song "This is My Idea" it is clear that Derek has some growing up to do before he will meet Odette's criteria for a husband. Although Odette clearly has some intense feelings for Derek and certainly does not indicate that they will never be a match. After watching her father's murder, being held prisoner for a year by a power-hungry maniac, and spending her days as a swan, Odette is looking through rose colored glasses. Derek's efficiency with the bow and arrow and his expressed desire for Odette, obviously makes him the most likely candidate for her rescue. Also, absence makes the heart grow fonder and Odette is certainly able to overlook Derek's shortcomings in his absence. During Odette's the rescue, Derek expresses some deep passions for her that clearly demonstrating a love that is not based solely on her looks.
Odette’s Diary Entry: New Year Craze
I really appreciate all of Derek's ambition and that he gets a jolt of motivation every new year. He's just so full of energy and thinking of creative ways to spend his time right now, and all of them goal oriented. He has had the last couple weeks packed with wonderful activities; meetings with dignitaries to establish new treaties and traditions, dinner parties, visits to all of the many industry outposts around the kingdom, parties, family game time and service to the poor.
He challenges himself to constantly learn a new skill. This year he wants to become proficient playing the Saxophone. It's a beautiful instrument and I have no doubt he will be a great player someday. For now, I nod and a smile at the chaotic noise.
My favorite goals he sets are the ones that involve spending time with me! It's important to him that we improve our health so this year we will spend more time outside in nature, especially hiking. It has been so romantic to spend this time with him. I really hope it becomes a tradition we carry on for many years.
His enthusiasm and his smile are contagious and everyone wants to be near him. He truly has an illuminating and refreshing personality that shows itself in January every year. Although, I must admit, by the time Derek's New Year fervor has begun to wear off, I am utterly exhausted and ready for a vacation!
