and I'll show you a man that can alphabetize.
Sadly, Thankfully! I mean, no human sacrifices were necessary.
1. In your opinion, what is the best translation of a book to a movie? I liked Sense & Sensibility - I was reading the book and saw the movie right before I finished the final few chapters which left me nicely spoiled for the movie but not completely ruined. And.....that's the only one that pops into mind.
2. The worst? Any other movie where I'd read the book first?
3. Had you read the book before seeing the movie, and did that make a difference? (Personally, all other things being equal, I usually prefer whichever I was introduced to first.) I try to see the movie first if at all possible because otherwise I tend to point out during the movie how they've compressed four characters into one and ruined the integrity of the plot and that so-and-so is horribly miscast and what? What? That didn't happen! (Or should have happened here.) Yeah. People who love me hate this. People who don't know me at all? Hate me.
Possibly this explains why:
Your spirit animal is the chipmunk. They are small and cute creatures who keep an exceptionally clean dwelling. They're not a very magnificent animal, but they make up for it in quickness, agility, and cuteness. They are a fairly common spirit animal, and nothing to be ashamed of.
***Wondering how this animal was chosen for you? These questions were carefully thought out to see how important you hold certain virtues such as: humanism, self-knowledge, rationalism, the love of freedom and other somewhat Hellenic ideals. Some of the questions were very subtle. Your score was then matched with an animal of corresponding nobility. However, you shouldn't think this was a right/wrong sort of test, but more of an idealistic values test. It's ok to not hold these values, you'll just get an animal spirit of lower stature if you do!***
Oh lovely. A chipmunk. Next time I'm going to lie. Wait! I mean lying is NEVER right! Even if it spares someone's feelings. Why do I think a chipmunk is a lesser animal anyway? That's just......animalism? And it's wrong. So there. See if I pick healing for my super power now. Now it's all about mind reading. Maybe invisiblility.
On the plus side: Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse
Uh oh. I lost 3% somewhere. Probably that pesky spirit animal guiding me with his chipmunk nobility. Alvin!
ominated me and I'm totally not going to pass the torch on because I'm......a chipmunk! We're ignoble like that. Breaking chain letters, not nominating the required people, stealing memes -
In renovation news, there is paint. Here's a Before and a Slightly After Paint:
Hezekiah's take on the whole thing seems to be "Get me out of here!" (That strip behind her is the new blue color of my bedroom. Hopefully it will be nice and icy and cool because at this rate, I'm going to have a migraine for the rest of my life.) (Not disabling, just annoyingly clingy).
There isn't much knitting or reading at the house. A word to the wise PRIOR to renovations, for the love of all that's dear to you, leave somewhere - anywhere - something chair-like to sit on and a working light that more or less works with the chair.
