I Wish I Could See Alice in Wonderland Right Now

room11
I just read a review that makes me want to see it right this instant, even though the instant before I had no interest. I love Alice in Wonderland and I love Johnny Depp, but I have a sense of disappointment about Tim Burton these days that made me think he wasn’t going to make an Alice I could love. The review changed my mind. Except it doesn’t open until midnight!

Today feels like a movie day in any case. Hmmm. It also feels like a do-your-imitation-of-a-slug day. What to do, what to do?

I took this picture the other day. I looked up and said, “Oh, I wish that room were mine.” I had the same feeling of longing though when I saw the room below. I’ve decided the room to the left would be my study, and the room below would be my bedroom. In my fantasy perfect apartment. Where I am a best selling author to the left, and an orphan consigned to the attic in the picture below (think Shirley Temple in The Little Princess).

  1. I can certainly get next to the neat apartment. You could sit in the window on a rainy day with Finney or Buddy and stare out while drinking a delicious cup of coffee.

    But why restrict your audience to the political left? Would it automatically put you “in” with some desirable New York circles?

    To me, the best things in life trasncend politics altogether.

  2. I love these two pictures. It’s all in the details isn’t it?

    As for movies, with my deafness I’m consigned to have to wait until they come out on DVD and I can at least watch them close captioned.(Hugs)Indigo
