Hannah Montana Day

So Saturday, March 21, 2009 somehow turned into "Hannah Montana Day".

The day began watching an episode of "Hannah Montana" with Scotland. Then I had a bowl of Hannah Montana cereal while talking to Ireland.

After we were all up and dressed, we headed up to Marsh (a grocery store) where Radio Disney was hanging out, and celebrating Hannah Montana, and the upcoming movie.

Highlights from the Radio Disney event include:

The head Radio Disney crewmember wore a Hannah Montana-esque blonde wig.

While I was entering Ireland's name into a drawing, Dalyn ran into an old friend, Cory, who was their with her daughter.

I entered the parent hula hoop contest. They gave us a few minutes to practice, and I wasn't doing too well. There was one other dad and a mom competing against me. The mom lady was doing as bad as me, but the dad guy was showing off his mad hooping skillz. The mom and I didn't have a chance.
When the contest started, I managed to get a good couple of spins from the hoop, but nothing I could sustan. Amazingly, the dad guy seemed to have gotten a bad start and was fighting to keep his hoop up too.
Somehow, against all odds, I managed to outlast them both!

I WON! Not only did I win a hula hoop contest, I won FOUR tickets to an early screening of "Hannah Montana the Movie" AND a two-sided poster!

I'll be seeing the movie two days before it's official release date. Exciting stuff.

After that, the Radio Disney crew taught us how to do The Hoedown Throwdown (the dance to the song of the same name from the new Hannah Montana movie).

Let's just say that I'm better at the hula hoop.

Things slowly moved on, and we eventually left.

Oh! And Dalyn's friend's daughter won the Wii game for the movie.

It turns out that Dalyn was willing to stay, but I mis-read her signals and thought it was time to go.

Then we went to Barnes & Noble so Dalyn could get the new Fruits Basket manga.

I started to look at Miley Cyrus' new autobiography, "Miles to Go" when I correctly interpreted Dalyn, and put it down.

As we headed back home, Dalyn checked her voicemail, and she had missed a call from her friend who was still at Marsh. Turns out, about 20 minutes after we left, Ireland's name was called in a drawing. She would've won the soundtrack to the new Hannah Montana movie, but we weren't present. How disapointing.


We ran into Cory at Walmart and she informed me that Ireland's name was also called to win the book.

After we got home, Ireland and I hung up the Hannah Montana poster in her room. This is the first item to adore her walls.
As it was a two-sided poster, we had our choice of looking at Hannah Montana or Miley Stewart. Dalyn voted for "the horses", which was the Miley Stewart side.

Now normally I would work on a Saturday night, but I had taken the night off to get some translating done.
So at 7:00 I turned on Radio Disney to listen to the Planet Premere of the soundtrack to the new Hannah Montana movie that I ('er Ireland) would've won.

Ireland slept through most of it, but when she woke up during the last song (a new version of "The Best of Both Worlds", the theme song from "Hannah Montana"), she requested her Hannah Montana microphone (c.f. We had tried to find it before going to Marsh, but couldn't.

We searched high and low for the mic. It was gone. The longer this went on, the sadder she became. It was only a few dollars at Target, and we needed a trip to the market anyway, so we rushed out the door to pick up a replacement before they closed.

Dalyn and Scotland stayed in the car while Ireland and I ran inside. (I should take this time to point out that I missed a couple hours of sleep during the day)
Somehow, Ireland and I left Target with $16 worth of Hannah Montana merchandise: 3 different Hannah Montana microphones, a Hannah Montana 3-in-1 pen/stamp/bubble wand, a Hannah Montana notepad, and a Hannah Montana stickerbook. We also got a generic bucket of chalk.

We then had an interesting trip to Kroger, where we did not buy the Hannah Montana Easter Egg decorating kit.

After we got home, and Ireland started playing with Her Hannah Montana 3-in1 pen (she is still unaware of the other 2 functions) and Hannah Montana notepad, I did some laundry. In the middle of the laundry basket, was the origional Hannah Montana microphone.

Go figure.

And of course, I spent the day updating Brightkite and Twitter with all of our Hannah Montana happenings. And no one said a thing about my almost exclusive Hannah Montana updates.

We will be seeing "Hannah Montana the Movie" this evening, I'll let y'all know how it is :-)
