A very merry unbirthday to me! I am a little late in finding this out…I think like a year late. Tim Burton is directing a live action film version of “Alice in Wonderland”. I am thrilled! I love Tim Burton movies and “Alice in Wonderland” is my favorite Disney production. I haven’t read the book but it’s on the list. I wore out the tape on my VHS when I was little by playing back the part where she’s in the garden and the little rose “Bud” peaks out and says, “I think she’s pretty.” Twenty years later, I continue to work on the impression.
And of course the Walrus and the Carpenter scene kills me.
“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings.”
