And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may in fact, be the first steps of a journey...(from Lemony Snicket)


The wisdom that can be found in "children's" books...

Okay, well, today was better. I didn't feel bad, but I was pretty tired by the end of the day. Maybe it was just a 48 hour kind of thing. Anyway, on a better note, I think I have finally decided on a thesis for my paper due in the 18th cent. lit class. I have been thinking about it (literally) all day...it finally came to me around 6:30. Now, my brain hurts.

Other than that, I did take some time out (probably what led to my discovery) to watch the movie Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events ( http://www.unfortunateeventsmovie.com/main_flash.html ). It was very interesting. I can't say that I LOVED it. I did love the books. I borrowed them from a little boy that I babysit occasionally. Those books are so dark and contain a lot of really interesting ideas. I don't think the movie was able to adequately convey all of those ideas. Still, the artistry was perfect. It was just like I imagined it. Also, there were some wonderful actors/actresses in the movie. Has anyone out there read the books? What do you think??
