Jeff said I wouldn't do it…ha! I love a challenge…or is that a dare? I don't know..but here goes. So at dinner tonight a conversation got started…it went like this…
Jeff: So did you watch The Wizard of Oz?
Me: Yes I did, it was good, but after reading Wicked I feel sorry for the Wicked Witch.
Jeff: What, are you kidding?
Me: No, she was not wicked when she was born, they made her wicked.
Jeff: Did you watch the movie?
Me: Yes I did. The witch and Dorothy were caught in the middle and it was not fair for either of them.
Jeff: Did you watch the whole movie?
Me: Yes, Wicked is before Wizard of Oz so you get to know about the witch and she was born green and people teased her and made her mean, and the good witch and her were best friends in College.
Jeff: It was a DREAM!!! Dorothy dreamt it, cause someone came to the house and stole her dog.
Me: Well the book is about before that, and the witch only became wicked when they killed her lover and she just lost it, and became mean, and her Dad made the magic slippers for her sister with no arms for balance, and she just wanted them back when her sister died and then Dorothy got them, and then the Wizard made Dorothy go get the witches broom.
Jeff: It was not real, this is a classic movie, and this Wicked book was written after and it was all a dream, and I watched this movie so many times in my life, as kids we could not wait for it to come on tv to watch it.
Me: That is cause you got American channels (side note: growing up in Canada – we didn't get a lot of the American channels)
Jeff: You can't say you like the witch cause she was bad and the movie was first, and the Wicked book came after.
Me: At least I read.
Jeff: I read every day at work.
Me: That is not the same thing. (side note: I read for entertainment…Jeff reads to learn)
Jeff: People will be mad if you like the witch, and you better not blog it cause that movie is a classic.
Me: Whew, that was a good dinner, I'm full!
So there ya go people, how's that for fun dinner conversation? Don't tell me not to blog it, cause I say…oh yeah baby…it's gettin' blogged.
I think its funny, cause maybe if I had seen the movie first before the book, I would have thought different, and I will admit that even though I had not watched the movie in its entirety before, I knew the story line basically a tornado takes Dorothy to Oz and she has to follow the yellow brick road to find her way home, there was a bad witch and she got killed at the end, but reading the book does make you watch the movie different.
Oh and I had no idea certain things were from the movie. When they said Lions and Tigers and Bears – Oh My! I had no idea it came from that movie…I mean I even did a scrapbook page with that title before, just didnt know it was from that movie…ok enough of this chit chat…how about a cute little Big Shot project?
This is another project the girls will do at class. This is not the one I needed the white shredded paper for, I will show that tomorrow. This is a fun box with a surprise inside.
Surprise! When you open up the box there is a flower inside with a mint candy on top decorated for Halloween, now this could be decorated any color, these would be fun as a wedding gift at each table setting, or a birthday party goodie.
Here's the recipe:
Paper: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Old Olive, Cast a Spell DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Bashful Blue marker, Summer Sun Marker
Misc: Stampin' Up! Flower Folds Bigz die, Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, black and white striped grosgrain, Stampin' Up! Bitty Box & Envelope Bigz Die
Well I gotta get off here and finish up getting ready for my workshop tomorrow night.
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
