you know, i really should watch malice in wonderland…
but i’ve kinda had issues lately where im having trouble breathing…
im kinda scared of having a panic attack:P
check it out, i actually drew something:)
a fairy very big fan of adventure time, music, and…molasses!
its my fairy friend!
and i know her hair isn’t that long, but i go to town with peoples hair and make it as swirly as ice cream!
so there you go!
another ukelele for the memories!
now if only i had colored pencils:D
This is a bug drawn by a Fairy!
in an abandoned…classroom.
seriously, do ALL schools become ghost towns on the weekends???
EDIT: correction, it turns out this is actually a frog:P
SPOILERS LINGER WITHIN THE WORDS I HAVE INJECTED IN THIS POST!
so, today at…12:06am, i finished a book!
it was a book i thought was too complex for me at first, but then i found myself getting into it once i actually, you know..
thats the thing about books
you don’t know what adventures await until you take your ball shaped lenses and stick them to the pages and instruct them to “Understand this!”
this is a book! the title?
The Ocean at the end of the lane!
its written by neil gaiman, whose last name i always pronounced as “Guy-man”
i apologize with a thousand banana cupcakes if you read this, if i had only known earlier of the proper pronunciation.
this only came to light recently when i saw a Q&A with you in it:O
so, the book is about a man who goes back to his hometown for a funeral, and lacking satisfaction from seeing the decimated remains of his former habitat, he explores to the end of the lane, where the hempstock farm is situated, along with a lake sized ocean!
it was here that this man(we’ll call him Jerry because Ree Pashi is too obscure of a name for anything…) spent a fantasy coated segment of his childhood in, along with his friend, Lettie, who apparently along with her mother and G-ma, found the secret to immortality(how else do you explain the fact that they never age?)
so, i’ll be brief. there was an accident by this farm where a man who executed the unholy act of killing a poor boys kitten died. and thats where the meeting of the two kid characters emerged into reality.
from then on, the strangest event occured with a tent who could speak and other…(this part of the book still confuses me. its like when they went beyond the ocean, they world hopped or something.)
umm…later that night!
a candy pink worm had encased itself in a microscopic sized hole within young Jerry’s foot.
little does he realize a “Flea” had used that hole and his heart as a wormhole…
and thats when the sea witch—er…i mean, Flea ursula appears. the woman who will ruin Jerry’s life by having an affair with his dad, and winning his sisters affections with material items, like a purse!
when his rebellion hits maximum, he runs into the night, Ursula ravenous for his capture!
Storms surrounded the Deep evening chase, but when young lettie arrived, the situation took a turn for the subsided, and through the power of sewing, memories were rewritten and Jerry evades punishment for fleeing home.
then the next morning, the final battle took place!
The two heroes confronted the sea witch-er…Ursula…and managed to defeat her through the power of starving vultures whom hold the awesome ability to turn into shadows.(or maybe they are the shadows…)
so, after a long deserved meal, the vultures became eager for dessert which just happened to be the thing that exists in Jerrys heart.
When these vultures were denied dessert, they found a substitute through Jerry’s world itself!
fearing the destruction of his world, Jerry made quite a sacrifice for someone his age and gave his life to the vultures. However! they were thwarted when lettie came to sacrifice herself for him, and then driven off by G-ma, awesome as always:P
as it turns out, lettie didn’t really die from the attack(which is a relief, cause the hempstocks are cool characters:))
however, the lake sized ocean must tend to her until her return in the inevitable future…so she is layed in this ocean for the time being until the arrival of that enigmatic date!(i wonder if this is what the cover of the book is conveying)
Jerry often wonders why he comes to the farm and its revealed that lettie wishes to see him despite not being all that there. not yet, at least!
turns out that he’d been visiting and he’d been forgetting all of those scenarios. and from what i read in the last bits of the book, it seems he may have forgotten this visit too right when he left…
i love gaimans descriptions for everything, even a toothbrush is described.
i wish i could understand the other world though, that was the only thing that didn’t make sense to me, the vultures, the flea herself, the tent, all of chapter 4.
i..i’d like a bit of clarification on what was going on there:)
the adventures of Jerry resonated alot with me when i was around his age, like arguing with parents or not liking a family member. i think gaiman did a good job writing Jerry’s character. i can actually see my kid memories when i read about Jerry.
it takes alot for me to get into a book due to my attention deprived self being an issue, but when i gazed at the plethora of words sprawled across these 178 pages, i found myself crazy gluing my hands to the pages, with a few breaks here and there.
its just one of those books you can marathon. every chapter you’re wondering: “okay, whats gonna happen to Jerry now in this wonderland of realism/fantasy?”
yeah, that was my question everytime i saw the book:)
Good job, Mr. Gaiman:D you wrote a book that i wasn’t sure of reading, but fell in love with! i now want to explore your other books!
especially Stardust, i never finished that one:P
i think at the time, i was concerned about the secrets of a certain other Wall
but the hype for attack on titan has been squelched for the most part
i’m ready to read about Stardust’s Wall:)
as for ocean?
well, like i mentioned above, i loved the descriptions and details of the world, and the Jerry character, but i couldn’t understand the other world all too wellx)
this is one of my new favorite books for the rest of my breathing days though!
i’d like to give it a Stop motion rating!!!
i really do want another molasses cookie now:P
im not allowed to sleep
apparently when i was sleeping, i felt the earths stomach rumbling
thats the first time in over 10 years that i felt that.
i guess i’ll read more ocean at the end of the lane:P
Anna: Do you wanna build a Snowmannnnnnnnn?
Elsa: Anna! Its Summer!
today i hung out with a fairy named phae valentin- er rose:P
it happened. many molasses cookies were offered to me and energy drinks were consumed!
and hills were climbed, capitol hill is a very hillish place!
green hills are sprawled throughout, and no sign of a blue hedgehog:P
and laughs were had:) strange jokes can do that to you!
library cards were thrown at me:D and window shopping for phones that looked like they were born in 2008!
and adventure!!! at a new college where university and seattle come together with large un-ominous buildings and pianos that get stuck in place:)
thank you:) friend
