Blustery Day

I was going to write something about how it is rather blustery (read: loudly and terrifyingly windy) outside today, because hey! I watched Winnie the Pooh as a kid, and I sure know some of you did, so this will be a good bonding moment. So then I Googled the clip from the movie that I was looking for and it turns out I'd totally forgotten the little song Pooh sings.
Oh the wind is lashing lustily
And the trees are thrashing thrustily
And the leaves are rustling gustily
So it's rather safe to say

That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubtedly
It looks like a rather blustery day
Can someone tell me was lustily lashing winds are? Or thrashing thrustily trees? Those things all sound like they came from bad fanfiction (trind shippers, get at me), not from a cutesy little movie about stuffed animals. Disney haters and overzealous parents (have those circles completely overlapped yet??) would be all up on this, right? I could write my junior year of high school paper on this and would probably hate Baudrillard just as much coming out of it! This is outrageous! Actually, since I could literally care no less about hidden messages in Disney movies, I mostly just find it  amusing to imagine lusty winds and thrusty trees. You're welcome.
For reference:
Though, I am hoping my attitude doesn't bring down the tornado we are on watch for and kill us all.


  1. I just recently watched this movie over and over and over while my niece was here. It was a fun walk down memory lane. : )

    1. That is adorable! Funny how little kids somehow have the patience to watch the same things over and over. I once watched Finding Nemo with my cousin like 6 times in a row (over like 3 days)!

  2. I watched Winnie the Pooh so much much as a child. Me and my siblings loved it. My sister was actually nicknamed Pooh for the longest time and she named her cat Mr. Heffalump (after the little elephant in one of the Winnie the Pooh movies).

    1. Aww, how cute! The Heffalumps and woozels in the original movie gave me nightmares, but I do remember the little one you're talking about, I think, and he was cute!

  3. My favorite song was when he's trying to use a balloon and disguise himself so he can get at the honeycomb and sings, "I'm just a little black rain cloud .... hovering over a honey tree" :-p
