Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
Hamlet by William Shakespeare ghosts, death, madness, poison, evil step parents and revenge *wistful sigh*
The Annotated Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle No, the Baring-Gould one that obsesses over details to support various Great Game solutions
The Annotated Alice by Lewis Carroll blew my young mind that Carroll was a mathematician - madness with method; it’s like a fairy tale / math crossover
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson *Arthur Shappey voice: wow!*
The Thief of Always by Clive Barker an unhappy boy is spirited off to a house where it is Spring every morning, Summer every afternoon, Autumn every evening (+ Halloween trick-or-treating after dinner), and Winter every night (+ Christmas presents before bed)
Faldum by Herman Hesse a magician comes to town and grants everyone wishes; one man becomes the mountain that overlooks the village and observes it over eons until the mountain crumbles to dust
Anathem by Neal Stephenson this one is like a history of science / scifi / religion crossover!
The Ghost Map and Emergence by Steven Johnson science!
The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson Chicago World’s Fair! electricity! a serial killer!
The Fairy Tales of Andersen and Grimm *faraway look*
tag all the people. if you did this already while i was distracted and I missed it, I am sad.
OKAY I think I’ve been gone for way too long now. My inbox is almost completely filled with unanswered questions, and my blog is dead. DEAD. Since my wrist is almost healed (I got hurt when I jammed my hand thru a metal gate - chasing a wild cat - it scratched my cat - badly - revenge is not worth it) and pretty much able to move my hand now, I should liven things up here. With reblogs. No … no art update for now cos I don’t have anything finished yet cos -point hand - DOMINANT HAND - cries - Yeah. So, ahaha, awkward comeback, excuse me.
either i will be told that i won’t have a job much longer. in which case extending the meeting from
30 to 60 minutes is ominous.
or i will be told that my job is fine (for now. what is job security? consistently high performance rating (a competitive rating)? bahaha irrelevant.) in which case, 3 reschedules? couldn’t you have sent a short “don’t worry, it’s all good news” message?
Okay, watched “Strange Magic” a second time just right now and now my heart is aching so happyily. Actually paid more attention on facial expressions and stuff (I tend to look away VERY often when watching romatnic things, especially kisses) and DAMN! I read it all the time, how wonderful blue Bogs eye are and I just can confirm it. *melts* Oh, and I also listen to the accent of Bog, didn’t notices it before, even it’s actually a strong one. *shivers giggling* And he looks so happy when Marianne starts to sing ‘Wild Thing’, my smile already hurts so much. xD And speaking of Marianne, uhhhh she is so totaly one of my favorite female characters, she is so strong and cool! Always love it to see her punching Prince Cha- oh, ah Roland right in the face. *grins evil* Now gonna watch the Flirt Fight more, love this so much, because, well fights are always cool, especially this one. And A Flirt Fight is not something I see on many movies and they both are sooo in their element fighting. x3
Wednesdaybun is so expressive. She is judging us all. Pictured, but not visible: crouching Aryabun, lurking Hannibun, sulking ravenlock. Also [redacted], [redacted], and [redacted] for destinationtoast
