So hi everyone.
I thought I ought to tell you the answers to The Game of Truth and Lies. Originally, I was going to do a video.
Let's face it. I got lazy as dragons are apt to do. I feel a thousand year nap coming on. So I might as get this over with before I take a snooze on my TBR, er, treasure hoard.
1. I love the movie 101 Dalmations.
I love everything about this movie. When I was a kid one of my favorite parts was the opening credits (you know, back when the credits rolled before the movie). I loved to watch the spots and dogs run around the screen and my favorite part was the music. I still love the music in that movie. MUSIC! Do you hear me? Go watch it and give it a listen.
Also, I had aspiration to be a dog. My brother wanted to be Godzilla. I wanted to be a dog. No worries though. I've come to my scaly senses and have accepted dragonhood wholeheartedly.
May I just mention the villain? If there ever was a fiendish human who would've made a good dragon, it was Cruella de Vil! She's got her own theme song. You know a villain has really "made it" when they have their own song.
Plus, her henchmen. Jasper and Horace, bumbling idiots though they be, are classic henchmen material.
The insults. Imbecile. Ninny. Idiot. Also classic.
And who betrays their friend, by stealing said friend's puppies to make a fur coat?! If that's not wicked than I don't know what is. Who steals their friend's puppy? That's low even for a dragon.
2. I like toast. It's my favorite breakfast.
When I was a young'un who knew nothing, toast indeed was my favorite breakfast. But now, I know more.
I can't get over the concept of toast. I don't get it.
It's crunchy bread.
Who wants crunchy bread? When bread is hard and crunchy, we say it's stale. We toss it in the furnace and kill it off. NOBODY WANTS CRUNCHY BREAD.
Why would you purposely. . . Just-- I can't --Crunchy bread?!
I. . . don't like toast. It doesn't make sense.
3. I have never been out of the country. That is, the US.
Once upon a time, I was seventeen (speaking in your human years). I went on a missions trip to Canada. It was a blast! I helped out with VBS and really I can't talk much to adults, or even peers, but I know how to more or less interact with kids. (What can I say? Kids like dragons. They at least believe dragons exist *snorts*)
But one day, I'd love to fly back to Canada. It's very beautiful and I think a few fellow dragons live there.
4. I've been thinking about changing up the blog.
I had thought about changing the title too. But some people actually seem to like the name. They've made me double think. And now I have to start the whole contemplating process over again.
5. I can't stand The Princess Bride.
This is a lie from the deepest depths of Mordor. I nearly feared to tell it. Although, I do rather think that the lack of dragons is astounding. The Princess Bride could use a dragon or two. It's the perfect book for a dragon and there are a grand total of zero. But that's my onlyest complaint. I love this book to pieces. It's one of my favorites. I've even written a post on why you ought to read The Princess Bride.
6. When I was a kid, I didn't know The Great Mouse Detective was a Sherlock Holmes retelling.
An unfortunate truth. I was a very unread sooty little reptilian. I didn't even know Sherlock Holmes existed! I'm not sure when I finally obtained this knowledge, but I feel a little cheated.
If I had known, I would've read all the Holmes stories as kid. I would have been a long time, hardcore, seasoned Sherlockian. I would be a Sherlock expert by now. And I could've owed it all to The Great Mouse Detective.
But instead I'm starting later, which is fine, just not as fantastic. The only upside is that I owe it all to
BBC Smaug BBC Sherlock, and my guitar instructor.
7. Gansey is my favorite Raven Boy.
I like Gansey. And I think I will always like him. But he is not my favorite. And I think he will always not be my favorite.
*collective fandom gasp*
I know. Everyone loves Gansey the mostest. But dragons tend to be contrary creatures. So shoot me.
You don't have the right kind of arrow to do it anyhow.
My favorite Raven Boy is--
You know, I have half a mind to not tell you. *evil grin* How would that be?
Okay, I joke. That *might* be as cruel as stealing your puppy.
Surprisingly, my favorite hasn't changed after finishing The Dream Thieves. Adam is my favorite. I know he's really messed up. And he's got a lot of issues. But honestly, they all do. So that's not a logical reason to pick others over him.
I could go on a paragraph long fangirl/rant right now, but I'll spare you the trouble. Besides I really feel that nap coming on soon. I'll just say that I do fear for him. Adam, that is. For later in the series. He always makes me sad. And he's even more alone now. Not to mention he's very unpredictable. I'm kinda scared to read the rest of the series. I might just go take a thousand year sleep instead.
