Thanksgiving Break

This thanksgiving break was the last one where I would not have to come home from school.  The last time I will not be away at college.  I tried to make the best of this last break but it did not start off well.  I started my last break off being sick.  My throat felt like I was swollowing nails and I could not breathe through my nose.  I felt terrible.  I decided to not come to school on our last day before break because I was not feeling good.  I wanted to stay home and sleep so I was not sick for the feast.  All I did was eat oranges and sleep while I was at home.  I tried to get the most  vitamin C in me so that I could feel better.  Wednesday came and I started to feel a little better.  I took it easy the whole day and then the day came.  I woke up on thursday morning to the smell of mashed potatoes and gravy.  I then was amazed that I could smell.  My family usually has a thanksgiving lunch so by the time I woke up it was already time to eat.

Fairy Tale

How does this clip deviate (depart) fromt eh formula of a typical fairy tale?
There is no typial male hero and the woman who is being saved basically saves herself.

Princess Fiona fought off an entire group of grown men by herself.

The princess being in the woods is out of place with an ogre and donkey.

Fiona did the saving.

Fiona showed the matrix in the fight scence.
