I would watch out if I were you--it's quite dangerous to be under the sundial when toves start to gimble in the wabe.

Ha, I'd never read "Jabberwocky" before, but your silly location made me look it up. That was quite (for lack of a better word) awesome! Always nice to read something new. I can't believe I'd never read it before...

Beware the Jabberwock, my son! That trecherous sundial! :lol:

Alaska, crossing the frozen wastes to seek a paper-back copy of "The Treasured Ones". ^-^

To put it plainly, I really, really want a paper-back copy of The Treasured Ones, but can't find one. It makes me sad... :(

It's epic.

I'm just strangely attached to "Jabberwocky". My dissertation advisor uses the word "burble" quite often ("in this section you should burble a bit about XYZ..."), and everytime she does that I picture this burbling Jabberwock whiffling through the tulgey woods.

PS: Those who know French, check my new sig:

This is what it means:
Als stand er tief in Andacht auf,
Des Jammerwochen's Augen-feuer
Durch tulgen Wald mit Wiffek kam
Ein burbelnd Ungeheuer!
and this
E mentre il bellico pensier si trattenea,
il Ciarlestrone con occhiali brage
venne sifflando nella fulgida selva,
sbollentando nella sua avanzata.
and this
Affisshu sou ni omotte
Honoo no you na me no Jabawo-ku ga
Tarugi na shinrin ni wiffuru shite kite
Ugoki nagara ba-buru shita!
and this
Dum requiescebat meditans uffishia, monstrum
Praesens ecce! oculis cui fera flamma micat,
Ipse Gaberbocchus dumeta per horrida sifflans
Ibat, et horrendum burbuliabat iens!
and this
Y mientras meditaba, el Dragobán
llegó, con ojos de terribles llamas,
lanzando vaharadas de alquitrán,
de azufre y de betún, bajo las ramas.
:D Stand awhile in uffish thought, maybe you'll get it.

I'm actually quite at home in the wabe in the tulgey wood (in fact its outright frabjous), and although it's a little slithy, I find myself mome when I'm not there. Alright, that's probably enough... :lol:

Callooh callay!
So much the stronger proved
He with his thunder: and till then who knew
The force of those dire arms? yet not for those,
Nor what the potent victor in his rage
Can else inflict, do I repent or change

I really like my location. I got mine from a guy my friend knows on Xbox Live. 8-)
What if everything is an illusion and nothing exists? In that case, I definitely overpaid for my carpet.
