30 Day Book Meme: Day #11 - A Book You Hated
Oh my. There are several options, of course. Not many, but as Spencer Tracy would say, those precious few are “cherce.” (But in a bad, bad way.) While certain contemporary books make my eye twitch (The Time Traveler’s Wife, the entire Twilight series, every book Dan Brown ever wrote), nothing gets my irish up like classic literature. I think I’m going to have to call it a tie between Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights (in which there is literally not a single redeemable character worth all the effort) and Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations (which managed to almost put me off Dickens entirely, a tragedy in and of itself, but oh god, how did I hate it that I almost never read A Tale of Two Cities because I would not give the dead man the satisfaction after putting me through the excruciating hell of reading that book).
(Also, gratuitous side note: once in college, a very stupid boy hit on me by saying that I looked like Emily Bronte. Actually, what he said was “You look like that chick who wrote that book I read in high school” and ensuing discussion led to the deduction that he had read Wuthering Heights. Needless to say, no, oh hell no. Guys, in case you are not aware, this is not a good pick-up strategy.)
Day #12 - A Book You Used to Love But Don’t Anymore
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy. There are not words to describe how vast my love was for this book and its sequels when I was in 8th/9th grade. The sun rose and set on Sir Percival Blakeney as far as lil’ me was concerned. Which is why I own practically every movie version of it ever made, as my love and devotion was a fearsome, obsessive thing. The musical adaptation was the first show I ever saw on Broadway, and the beginning of a long-standing appreciation for the awesomesauce that is Terrence Mann’s comedic timing and bass voice. (The only Chauvelin. Ever. The end.) My VHS tape of the Anthony Andrews-Jane Seymour BBC adaptation (featuring an impossibly young Sir Ian McKellen) is practically worn thin from the repeated viewings, as after my mom was diagnosed with cancer I watched it almost daily for the sheer, silly comfort.
And now, I read it, and aside from all the cringing over the book’s incredibly racist denouement, I… can’t get worked up about it the way I used to. There are other books from that time of my life that I still read with giggles, or by holding my breath — they still effect me. But oddly, not Orczy. (I still know all the words to the songs from the musical, though. Some things will never not be in my head.)
I plant minute kisses along your forearm as I smear the creamy substance across your brazen belly. Leaning up to the slightly sandy shell of your ear, I cautiously whisper, "Isn't fro-yo wonderful?"
OH MY GOD YOU FUCKFACED SON OF A BITCH I HATE YOU, I HATE THE TERM FRO-YO, AND YOU CLEARLY KNOW THIS AND KNOW WHAT PUNISHMENT AWAITS YOU WHEN YOU USE THIS TERM.
I HATE YOU.
Equally as appalling as Comic Sans:
Why do I hate these? It’s the odd x-height, default kerning, awkward bowl shape for letters like “D,” the rounded ends to stems on certain letters… All in all, they make for unappealing fonts to look at.
I don’t care for Papyrus, either.
