The Series of Unfortunate Events: The End


It's time for me to make my official say on this long awaited end to The Series of Unfortunate Events. I started this book way back in the day when there were only three out. I thought it was a fabulous idea... a story that DOESN'T end happy. (I was in need of a huge change in story line, if you couldn't tell.) I got some of my family involved in the unfortunate stories of the Baudelaire orphans. One especially... my mom. Her and I figured that there would be 13 books to the series since there was always 13 chapters, which is why I found it so stinkin' funny that the 14th chapter, the last say on the Baudelaires, is exactly 13 pages long... HA! So this is my point... I didn't so much like the ending, I didn't so much like the last few books as far as story line goes. It was so so & the Baudelaires were always learning more, in a very weird way... anyways, it was all so random and confusing, their story, that I kind of stopped caring what happened to them. So why did I keep on reading? I love love love this "Lemony Snicket's" quarkiness! His random explanations of words or sayings, the silly talents of the children, the bizarre twists, the insane characters... these things kept me hooked. What imagination! I so want to know who this guy really is, ya know!

Tami, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. sorry, I haven't read yours, but you mentioned just getting into photography. I use sheets for my white and black backgrounds, or posterboard or whatever is there. I ordered one background form http://www.silverlakephoto.com If you go to there clearance (mismatch backgrounds) you can get something for $50 off. I will definitely order from them if I get another background. They have great muslin :) Congrats on getting started with photography! I just started really getting into this when I got my camera only 2 months ago! But I have always taken pictures whi point and shoots - it is another world learning photoshop and how to take pictures in manual mode :) Can't wait to see your pics!
