Re: Corrupt a wish

I wish I wasn't stuck in an insanely long and boring meeting right now. You manage to slip away from the meeting, but promptly fall down through the drain hole and get stuck in the sewers of Paris! (fortunately, as a Mizzie, you can find your way down to the river). :P I [belatedly] wish my watch w...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Film adaption of CATS? Excuse me? :shock: I never understand why people like it and why they think there is a plot. *sigh* I tried to watch CATS... I genuinely tried. But it's so hard to keep paying attention when there's nothing happening. There are a few good songs, and I was very impressed by th...

Re: Non-English musicals?

More about Le Petit Prince. I love the book very much and actually have a bilingual edition of it. The main reason why I'm not crazy about its musical adaption -- don't know whether we're talking about the same thing either -- is the rose. I think it would be better if the actress were younger or e...

Re: Hi there

Hi Naomi! Welcome to Abaisse! Oh, there's so much to talk about in that book and musicals... Always glad to hear other people's thoughts about everything. I just want to take a small moment to make this rant: To the non-native English speakers whom I met on this forum and in other geeky corners of t...

Re: Non-English musicals?

@Chantefleurie: Obviously, I'm not a NDdP book geek :oops: I read it when I was in primary school but never returned to read it again. To tell the truth, I wasn't deeply impressed by the story. Probably because I was too young to comprehend it. And so glad to know that you've read The Book Thief! I...

Re: Non-English translations

Oh, interesting. Can't speak for Japanese or Korean, but the Russian translation makes it "The Rejected/Outcasted". Funny thing. When I tried to look up how Google Translate translates the Russian name, it actually wrote "Les Misérables" in the English column. :D It only does so ...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I was kinda wondering about that too, who uses which short form. I just personally prefer Les Mis because it is more visually pleasing. Thanks for the backstory, Havvy!

Re: Corrupt a wish

You don't have early morning classes. Instead, you have an essay due early next morning but you haven't started writing it yet! ...which is actually my case. I wish that wasn't :cry: It isn't - the deadline was today. You're handing it in late. 8) Oh the troubles of student life! :( I wish pencils ...

Re: Non-English musicals?

Wow, I should have known earlier that you are a huge NDdP fan, Chantefleurie! Heh, I suppose so. I was blown away by my reread of the book a couple years ago, and no musical can compare, but book stuff aside it's still a good musical overall. (But book geeks will know where my screen nickname came ...

Re: Hello!

I'm sorry I upset you. Really, I didn't mean to upset anyone, nor to say that Grantaire is anything but a lovely character. The reason I would want to analyze his dark side as well is because he's so intriguing and complex and very lovable. There's not much point in doing a psychoanalysis of, say, ...

Re: Star Wars!

I second the spoiler semi-alert thing. If you're avoiding spoilers, don't read this post. I actually quite liked Finn. The idea of a stormtrooper turning against his own hasn't been done yet, and he's got a decent blend of heroism and self-interest to bring the audience onside with him. Good comic ...

Same here. It's firmly placed in my reading list, but it definitely stands behind The Brothers Karamazov. One of these days... :)

You brought the tablet, but on your way home you realized that it was broken beyond repair.

I wish I didn't have early morning classes.
