You can just click the "Quote" button in the corner of the post you want, too. For an image one, the image has to be within a certain size limit, but it's much larger if you upload it yourself with the "Upload Attachment" thing. For a link to a picture, just use [img]LinkToImage[/img]

It's not as big as I thought, thank goodness. :mrgreen: (Catch up for everyone else: I ordered a blue version of this last week, and it came in today.) I think I might wear it Thursday, actually; the shirt I was going to wear has long sleeves, and this way I can have it for our last choir rehearsal.

Where are you, Mabz? :D

Book two, chapter three. I loved the bit where they were questioning the witnesses..."Have you ever been kicked down a staircase?" :D

I know. :lol: Just fantastic, that whole scene, even if Dickens never leaves a character alone.

Rearranging all my sewing supplies...including the spools of golden thread. :cry: Now I can't stop thinking about Tale.

I haven't gotten to the golden thread yet....*something* tells me it's a big part of the story. Is it a metaphor or something?

Well, for starters, it's the name of Book the Second. And it is a symbol, for resurrection, and life, and something beautiful that binds everyone together and keeps them from losing their way, and all that, which makes it the perfect thing to represent the golden-haired, pure-hearted Lucie. :mrgreen: So it's big in that that's what she's constantly compared to.

Random, but does anyone know if there's a Tale blog on Tumblr? Because I haven't seen one, but it needs to exist.

Weird what cleaning can do to you, huh? And Mabz, Dickens apparently took every metaphor, reference, and phrase he could find that had to do with resurrection and crammed it into here. :wink:

Okay, but there's only five posts or so...http://cartons-juicebox.tumblr.com/ I could see if I can figure out how to make you guys mods for it, too, if you want.
