Munch on This One, Munchers
Vacations. Can’t get enough of ’em. But while I’m away there are things I just can’t stop thinking about. Things like . . .
If you’ve never read one of Leila Roy’s encapsulations of old Nancy Drew titles, now would be a good time to start. She just came out with her views on The Sign of the Twisted Candles. It’s almost enough to get you rereading the series yourself. Can we persuade Leila to switch to Trixie Belden when she’s finished with the original Keenes?
Oz and Ends located some very interesting news on how one translates Harry Potter into Hindi. The idea that the final novel of the series might affect how one refers to a character in the first carries all kinds of implications.
This I relate to. I relate to it all too well.
Librarianne was actually a veritable plethora of info this week. At this moment in time I am in Stratford, Ontario, hopefully avoiding a deadly swan bite. If, however, I fail in my attempts to elude the swans and my ungodly carcass is slung back to the lower 48, at least we know how much I’m worth.
Macabre? Wouldn’t have it any other way. Heck, for $4,040.00 you could probably get a really nice down payment on a car, right? Name it "The Swan" in my honor then.
