"I saw that look. 'Haha his ship is rubbish.'"


 Series of Unfortunate Events.

"Soda, Soda...banana."

 I saw the movie before I read the books, something which can get me hanged in the reading world.  When I first saw it I thought the movie was very weird. Yet, since I'm naturally a very weird person, I ended up liking the movie. It is still one of my favourites, I even wish I had a dress like Violet's.

 And I don't know where to go from here. I've tried writing this post three times at least. I got behind in my editing by a day and have been trying to come up, but my brain thinks it is unable to handle two chapters in one day and after the first it shuts down. After I edited this morning I kind of dozed off, too tried to convince myself to do one more chapter.

 But I am making progress. And this is were I start to say something intelligent, but I don't think I'll attempt it. Just be glad I got a post this long.

 And, that is all I have. Quote is from Doctor Who. Points to whoever knows which episode.




  1. Not even going to guess which Doctor Who episode... One with 11 I'm guessing. Probably one that I haven't seen yet.

    I don't think there are jelly babies in the States... I'm not sure. I haven't seen any 4 yet but I really want to! He has the coolest scarf. I really want to see him and 7, who is also Radagast the Brown in The Hobbit.

    It would be a very interesting episode if Jethro and Sally became companions.... I like them better as one time companions.

    Haha, that's right about Sophie! She's got two little boys.

    Haha it's great when McCoy finds out about Spock's brain... His katra or whatever's it's called.

    The kiss at the beginning or Prince Caspian is awful... I skip it too. Mostly it's awful because people that have read the books KNOW that Caspian marries that star girl and has the boy from The Silver Chair!

    Hurrah! I got it right! I knew it was a scene from one of the books that takes place in the desert before Haddock.... 'Cause Tintin is with Oliviero Defigerero (not even gonna try and spell that right) and he buys all that stuff and then goes ashore and he meets Rastapopulous and then gets kidnapped or whatever....
    Oh that's really interesting about The Land of Black Gold! I didn't know that! The book wouldn't happen to one that Michael Farr wrote, would it? Tintin and Co. or... the other one that I don't remember the name of? Those are great books. I own them both... I just need to read them all the way through. xD

    Have a good night and happy editing!

  2. I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!! It's just awesome, plain and full-stop.

    "I hope you've had your shots. Typhoid, tetnis. Malaaaaria!" "Doesn't it strike you as odd that none of our relatives are related to us?"

  3. I SECOND MIME BY SAYING I TOO LOVE THAT MOVIE! (Yes, the all-caps were totally necessary.) We won't hang you for watching it first, because we're nice like that.

    "Roast beef. It is the Swedish term for beef that is roasted."

  4. I've never read the books, but I have seen the movie...if you don't tell, I won't tell! :D

  5. I tried to read the books. And I loved Snicket's hilarious style. But it was so depressing. Depressing books make me mope about all day, and then people don't like me and my family is like, "What's wrong with you?" and I'm overall miserable, because I can't get the book out of my head. But I might try some of his other books.

  6. I saw the movie before reading the books as well, and I finally finished the books and I honestly love both movie and books.

    I thought it was weird/bizarre the first time I saw it too! I think this movie just has to be watched twice. LOL

  7. "Hello, my name is Mr. Stephano, I am an Italian man."


  8. I haven't seen this... I read the books, but... I was disappointed in the final one. I didn't feel like everything was explained. Like... what was the deal with the sugar bowl? And DID one of the kids' parents survive? I don't know, I guess it felt like there were a lot of loose ends. Or maybe I just missed it? lol...

    I thought the movie looked funny though.

    I KNOW THAT QUOTE!! That's the Black Spot episode. I loved that one. :D

  9. I've not seen the movie or read the book.
    If one chapter a day is all you can do, just reset your goals.

  10. Oh, I love that movie! I saw it before I read the books as well. It's one of my favorites.

    I know the feeling! Still, it made me smile. Don't sweat it too much :p
    It's my pleasure to have reviewed your book! I understand how helpful they are, plus that's kinda what I do anyway.

    Also, thanks! I decided my life needed more sea foam green.

  11. I love the Unfortunate Events books! I've read all 12 (13?) of them! :D

    my blog:

  12. I found the end of The Series of Unfortunate Events to be a little disappointing. I may read them again later, but what I liked about them was all the funny hidden messages and random clues sprinkled throughout the 13 books, and not everything was cleared up at the end of the 13th book. I did enjoy the movie, though. It was seriously odd, but I laughed over it.

    "Dinner is served. Puttanesca."
    "What did you call me?"

    Good luck with your editing. Have you heard of Autocrit? I find it quite useful in the editing and revising stage. It catches the words I overuse - a lot - and suggests words to take out. :) (The actual site is )


  13. "There are two kinds of fears. Rational and irrational. Being afraid of realtors is an irrational fear..." heh heh. Nothing like Aunt Josephine's fear of realtors to make one feel less silly about one's own irrational fear of strangers :-)

    I enjoyed the movie (Jim Carrey is so weird), and the books as well. And the Unauthorised Autobiography of Lemony Snicket, which was hilarious. He's got a new mystery book out now, featuring himself as a 13 year old detective. It is called "Who Could That Be At This Hour" It is fun, and not quite so peculiar as the Series of Unfortunate Events.
