Former Disneyland mermaid, Edie, shares what it was like to don a tail and swim in the happiest place on earth:

Being a professional mermaid for Walt was nothing to take lightly.  The Productions Department measured us from hip to toe for neoprene tails, complete with large flukes, and green starfish bras.  We were taught to slither into the Submarine Lagoon from a hidden chamber and dolphin kick underwater to magically surface in the center of the pool.  There we sat on a rock and untangled our hair with immense blue and yellow plastic combs, and plucked ersatz lyres.We worked in shifts of two, and traded off hourly. Each time a submarine passed, we dove underwater to frolic about, hang upside down by spinning our tails, and to wave at curious faces plastered against the portholes.  With practice we learned to smile without emitting bubble screens that would distort our faces into repulsive creatures from the deep.  For all this we were paid $1.85 an hour - a whopping net of $59.55 each week.

live to ride

how did bikers ever get the reputation of being fearsome. Everything I’ve ever heard about them is always rides for charity, helping stray animals, telling kids to stay in school and doing cute shit like this and generally being nicer than 90% of the population.

The rundownJane, an ex-olympic-level gymnast, has a shit lifeTM. When she’s not at her repetitive, boring-ass job she’s desperately trying to have a baby with her douchebag husband (possibly not the greatest of ideas, that).
This all changes when she’s invited to become part of an aerial silks stage show. Cue life-affirming purpose and falling headlong into a lesbian relationship with her stage-mate (for real, I do not blame her).
ProsDid I mention the silks? Because those parts are SUPER awesome.

Also, I wanted to reach in and marry Serena (the love interest) myself. She’s a knife-obsessed, closeted lesbian of Korean descent who was adopted and raised by a Jewish family. If that isn’t a fuck you to character expectations, I don’t know what is.
ConsAgh, PARTNER BETRAYAL. Though the husband’s a giant, walking assmunch, so you end up not feeling all that sorry for him.
[SPOILERS] Everyone…Lives hopefully ever after. The movie ends with the Jane leaving her husband, engaging in the most acrobatic YAY I’VE FOUND MYSELF scene I’ve ever watched and tailing Serena to Vegas. We don’t actually see them reunited but fuck you, they totally get back together and raise adoptive babies while learning to tightrope walk or something, ‘kay? ‘KAY.
