Not My Cup of Tea [Thursday
April 22nd, 2010
10:13pm
]
Dear you,

You came into my life rather unexpectedly, and truthfully I did feel some opposition towards you at first. But, you seemed to grow on me. Most definitely an acquired taste, though everyone else seems to be unable to get along without you. Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’m what’s wrong.

But I can’t help but to think about all the years I’ve spent without you. My life was fine; no real ups or downs. I stay up much later than I should with or without your presence, and I know you would rather not hear that. But really, I feel as though I must confess something.

I was using you. Yes, I enjoyed having you around but something about you just shook me in a way I’ve never felt before—-and it wasn’t a good thing. You ran through my veins every day and altered my consciousness. I can’t focus for more than a couple hours with you in my life and I don’t understand how we got here. Was this you all along? I feel like I should have known, but I was so ignorant to your ways. I’m just upset people pushed me towards you, never against. My own heart told me not to see you, use you, have you, but did I listen? No. And I’m sorry, but this was the last time.

I know we weren’t together for long—-four months, was it? I’m sorry I’m ending this so suddenly, but I feel as though it is the best, and only, way.

I’m sorry, coffee. I tried.

Should we make a Sometimes A Great Notion community?

Or we probably should have thought of making a "SEHS AP Lit" community at the begining of the year cause this is almost over, huh?

Or just post what's happened here?

OK so I'm selling old crap that I 1) Bought but never wore 2) My mom bought me but I never wore or 3) I'm sick of having it because I don't wear it anymore.

My for sale shit journal is llamaforsale. Most everything will always be between $5-$10.

This stuff is sooo old. Oh well. I have to get rid of it somehow!

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory AWESOME FACTS!!! [Tuesday
November 22nd, 2005
10:31pm
]
I was searching for Mike Teavee's story (how he calculated where the Wonka Bar would be- I'm not sure exactly what it was so I went looking for it, never found it), but I came across facts, and I've posted my favorites/most interesting:



  • Four kids represent a deadly sin:

  • Augustus Gloop: Gluttony
    Mike Teavee: Wrath (and possibly Sloth)
    Veruca Salt: Greed
    Violet Beauregarde: Pride


  • Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has been popular for inflation fetishism.

  • Veruca and Violet can be seen feuding as Wonka sings Pure Imagination. In real life, Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca) and Denise Nickerson (Violet) became good friends and both had a crush on Peter Ostrum (Charlie) (they would alternate days over who would spend time with Peter).

  • In 1999, in the same spirit that discovered The Dark Side of Oz (playing Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon while watching The Wizard of Oz), a similar strain of serendipity uncovered Willy Wonka's 2112—playing the epic Rush album 2112 beginning at a point near the entrance into the factory. Specific instructions and instances of synchronicity can be found here. Anyone have this CD?

  • The man who played Mr. Slugworth in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is named Günter Meisner.

  • A book is out called Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes, which is a collection (compiled by Felicia Dahl) of recipes of foods mentioned in Dahl's books. Definitely involves a lot of work to make most of them (not a children's cookbook) and impossible-to-get ingredients.

  • Fred Astaire originally wanted to play Willy Wonka, but was considered "too old" to play the part, so Gene Wilder "won the role."

  • Gene Wilder's hair grows more and more "crazy" as the movie progresses (he's truly mad!).

  • Peter Ostrum refused a several-year contract after the film was made, but he refused, not wanting to be an actor, really. He was actually embarrassed for doing the movie, but now is quite proud and he has become a vet. PEOPLE Magazine did a "where are they now?" article on him, found here.

  • Peter Ostrum went through puberty while filiming- you can notice the voice ranges he has throughout the entire movie.

  • The girl in the classroom scene who says "I opened one hundred Wonka bars" was Mel Stuart's daughter- rewarded by him because it was her idea to make the movie. The boy who announces the Golden Ticket contest in Charlie's classroom was Mel's son.

  • A Snozzberry can be misinterpreted as a booger (just think about it), but in actuality, it is explained in Dahl's "My Uncle Oswald" as being the head of a penis.

    Find more facts here and here.

One letter stands for another. In this sample, A is used for the three L's, X for the two O's, etc. Single letters, apostrophes, the length and formation of the words are all hints. Each day the code letters are different.

This is my CRYPTOQUOTE for the day!
