This is it, the homestretch of blogging A-Z and I admit I'm just a little relieved to have one less "duty" to fill. With summer fast approaching, my personal time is slowly epping away as the kids only have a few more weeks of school. *sheds a few tears* But as always, I've loved making new friends this month, and sharing new thoughts with old ones.
Thanks so much for making this month rock!
Now, in honor of W day, I give you my fave fictional character pick:
Boy oh boy, this lady had me shaking in my footed pajamas when I was a kid. She was the pure essence of evil, complete with bloodcurdling cackle. When I was a child, every year The Wizard of Oz would come on prime time TV as a special, and it'd take like four hours it seemed like ... with all those commercial breaks filtered through ... just about every year I fell asleep before it got to the end. lol
But also every year I'd be traumatized for nights thinking this lady was going to pop out of my closet and point her nasty finger at me. I was very young, mind you, and the older I got the less creepy she seemed and the more I admired the actual creation of the Wicked Witch of the West and marveled at Margaret Hamilton's ability to embody her wickedness onscreen.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum, and although I've never read the novel, I have to appreciate the classic plotline come to life through fantastical world building, and the Wicked Witch of the West will forever be an iconic image of all things horrible.
Any thoughts on the WWW? Did she scare you as a child? Did you like the book better than the 1930s film? Did the part where the lion sang the song King of the Forest make you wanna vomit? Yep, me too.
