Making Time For Mickey

One of the things I did on my geek sorta-sabbatical was, well, pretty geeky.

After a period in my teens where I passed off all my VHS tapes to cousins and pretending I wasn’t cray-cray for cartoons, I’ve fully embraced my love of Disney once again. Of course, the Pixar catalogue has been a gateway drug leading backwards into the classic canon, and though not without some shabby entries (‘Oliver’s Company’, I’m looking at you) the Walt wonder years are not to be snubbed by any serious film fan – or eternal kid.

Because the Blu/DVD library and Disney Infinity figures aren’t enough, I took time out (guffaw) from my busy schedule to buy a Mickey Mouse watch from Ingersoll watches.

It’s just one of many timepieces starring the world’s most famous mouse, but the large dial and stainless steel bracelet meant this one won prime real estate on my hairy wrist. Everybody’s favourite Sorcerer’s Apprentice looks like he’s having fun telling me what time it is, dontcha think?

If you’re geared towards Goofy or would rather spend your time with a dwarf or evil queen, you’ll be happy to hear that Ingersoll have a Disney watches collection that I really wish I hadn’t seen because I now want all of them. Rolex has never been this much fun!

Disney Welcomes You to Christmas Town

I wrapped my first Christmas presents tonight, which makes me a CRAZY PERSON. But, my ultra-preparedness aside, Christmas is on the way and the House of Mouse knows it – Mickey and his minions have released their first lot of Xmas goodies ahead of the holiday season.

Obviously, I want all of the Jack Skellington ‘Nightmare’ baubles, but I think Pascal in a Santa suit is the winner here. Choice picks below, more at The Disney Store.
