~Alice's Adventures in Wonderland~

-by Lewis Carrol

I sat at my computer with the book open in front of me. My hand was on the mouse, navigating to youtube. (My bestfriend.) I was just about to finish the book, and I realized that I had never seen the movie!

I knew basically all the parts to the story, The White Rabbit, 'Drink me', The Caterpillar, The Cheshire Cat, The Queen of Hearts, and The Mad Hatter, along with others... But I had never seen the complete movie from start to finish. And I had not read the book until now.

While I was reading, I saw that the only thing I had not known about Alice (before I read the book.) was her tendency to talk to herself, and to give herself advise. I thought it quite funny:

"Come, there's no use in crying like that!" said Alice to herself, rather sharply; "I advise you to leave off this minute!" She generally gave herself very good advise (though she seldom followed it).

ha ha, I just reviewed the book on my blog and I brought the movie into the review. Did you read it cause I marked it on Goodreads?

Well, I wanted to read it ever since I saw they were making the movie. Then I saw you had reviewed it, so it reminded me that I wanted to read it.

But I still have to read Through the Looking Glass, because that is the one the movie is off of.
