Pinterested?

Today I discovered Pinterest, a photo-sharing website stylised as “an online pinboard”. It seems to be a classy, sophisticated version of Tumblr (I think to sign up you have to be invited by a current user. This is probably the strategy to keep TB’s away). On their homepage are previews of some of the things that have been “pinned” there so far.

Here are two handfuls of my favourite images:

If you click through to the original post from the one on Pinterest, you’ll find a recipe for making chocolate-covered cookie buttons! Definitely gonna try them one time.

Narnia enthusiast

My excitement and anticipation for the cinema release of the new Narnia movie in 2 weeks made me want to watch both the already-released movies today. But I was a bit hesitant to watch Prince Caspian because they changed and/or excluded so many things from the book. Anyway, I watched them both, and it was only halfway through Prince Caspian that I started to feel tired from having been on my feet for several hours while I did the ironing.

I remember watching a BBC production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in primary school, and I remember it mimicking the book really closely. To my knowledge, they did more than just the one movie, so I went on a Google-hunt to find out whether it was available for sale anywhere so that I could buy it.

Here it is:

Geek of Narnia

geek

noun
an unfashionable or socially inept person
[with adj.] a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with the Chronicles of Narnia.

I first read the first book C.S. Lewis wrote from the series—The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe—in primary school, but sometime during high school, I decided I wanted to read the remaining 6 books. I managed to borrow and read all except the seventh book—The Last Battle—from my high school library, and I remember my mum randomly buying books 5 and 6 (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The SIlver Chair) for me.

In Year 11, we studied imaginary journeys for English (if I can remember correctly), and I used Voyage of the Dawn Treader as one of my texts for my portfolio. I don’t know why, but I went shopping for a new Chronicles of Narnia book around the time I was making my portfolio. It may just have been that I wanted to buy the other 5 books so I could finally read them again, but in the process, I found a large book that combined the seven. The cover boasted of the recently released movie adaption of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (which features a very handsome Peter Pevensie). (When Prince Caspian the movie came out, this book was re-released with a new cover that featured Prince Caspian (played by the handsome Ben Barnes) instead of the White Witch.)
