This Week's Topic:
If you could be reincarnated as any fictional character, which would it be?
I'd probably go for Alice in Alice in Wonderland. In the classic tale she is an argumentative, curious child who is strong enough to question the nonsensical adult world and challenge authority. And in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland I liked how he developed her character futher, keeping her as a young girl who questions what she sees in society and rebels against it and ponders about the strangest things. She doesn't want to be married off to someone she barely knows. She wants more than that. When people comment of her strange thoughts and not being ladylike she stands up for herself and continues to be herself. I actually think she's a good role model for young girls, encouraging them that they don't need to follow society's rules and conform if it feels ridiculous to them.
Tomorrow I'm off to Darlington and will be gone for a week so I won't be posting Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. Might post on Wednesday if I get back home on time but we'll see. So if you've just started your holidays have a great first week and I'll see you next Wednesday/Saturday!
