Fun Facts and words:

This post will only be amusing if you have watched "Singing in the Rain" :) 

Fact:

Donald O'Connor (Cosmo) got extreme carpet during the song "Make em' Laugh" then had to re do the whole song when the original footage was ruined. 

The man who played Don Lockwood and the girl who played Lina Lamont both of their names were Jean. Except spelled different ways. :) 

Well that's about it. Do you like facts about movies? Or do you prefer words?
Toodles!

Random update

Hey everyone. I'm sorry I haven't had many pursanal posts lately. I can't say that I've been abnormaly busy its just that I've been lazy. :P I Just spent my whole morning hunting up contact information for ten authors who seem to not want to hear from their readers. :) Now that I've finished that chore I'm just chilling with Mandisa's "Waiting for tomorrow" and keeping up with laundry. Exciting right? ;) Well thats my life right now, that and reading. I'm atemting to catch up on my Goodreads challenge by reading Nancy Drews. :) 

In case anyone was wondering my writing is going well. I STILL haven't finished editing "Danger in the Distance" or "Robin Hood" Which I had hoped to get done by the end of this month. :( Then again I have done some misc writing that I had really wanted to do and I'm writing a story with my best friend Lauren, which is always a treat. :D I have about five characters begging, pleading and yelling at me to give them some atenchen. I feel sorry for them, their stuck in my head and they have to wait till I'm ready to come out. ;) 

I have one request, please, if you actually read this whole post, comment. :D 

Till next time!

The barbed wire which I thought strangely enough resembled the ASL "I love you" Sing. :D


And the moon. I know its a bit blurry but it was the best I could do.

So what do ya'll think? Would you like to see more photos?

Fun Facts and words:

Defamiliarization: Defamiliarization refers to a writer's taking an everyday object that we all recognize and, with a wave of his or her authorial magic wand, rendering that same object weirdly unfamiliar to us—strange even. Presto change-o, our perspective shifts and we see the object in a new way.  

Or simply put: to make something unfamiliar or strange
