A Summary and Analysis of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Red Shoes’ Fairy Tale — Interesting Literature

‘The Red Shoes’ (1845) is perhaps the strangest of all of Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known fairy tales. Divining the meaning of some of Andersen’s other stories for children is relatively easy, but a number of aspects of the meaning and symbolism of ‘The Red Shoes’ remain troubling. Let’s take a […]

Well first week of work down, and I had all these plans! The first night, my mum said that I looked like a zombie, haha

Which means that the last couple of days, I have been really struggling to think of anything to write. Which normally, I’d be fine with, but this is Halloween week! It’s like not having any “flow” at Christmas!

I am so tired, I just don’t want to do these blogs at the moment, haha. Excuse the lack of entertainment

Share Your World…Kind of, lol

I’m doing a little bit of a twist on the Share Your World, meaning when it’s usually about sharing some questions that the beautiful Melanie (and sometimes Roy) share with us. What am I going to share with you, is what I like to do to celebrate the more “Americanised” Halloween.

Favourite Halloween Films:

I’m honestly, not into the scary films, like your very scary, violent films … Real life is scary enough after all.

  • Nightmare Before Christmas
  • All The Addams Family
  • The Mummy
  • Phantom of the Opera
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Young Frankenstein
  • Dracula (Keanu Reeves, Ryder and Oldman).

Favourite Halloween Foods/Treats:

  • Candy Corn…I think it’s delicious!
  • I love making chocolate mousse and then putting gummy worms through it.
  • I haven’t yet, but I do want too make mead!
  • I do like toffee apples, but I can never get through it all.
  • In the past, I have made popcorn with white icing, and candy corn. You have to use either salted popcorn or buttered, for a really good flavour. Nothing plain on Halloween! The white icing sticks the candy corn to the popcorn.
  • I don’t know why, but I really love Oreos on Halloween.
  • Smores…I’ve seen a recipes call them Ghost Smores, they just put little eyes on the peak.
  • Hot Chocolate … with the Marshmallow!

Favourite Halloween Music:

Favourite Halloween Tales:

  • Jack-o-Lanterns and the Legend of ‘Stingy Jack’
  • The Raven – Edgar Allan Poe
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Frankenstein
  • Dracula

Which tastes better: black or green olives?

Honestly…I don’t really like any kind of olive.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

It has to be between my bedroom and the lounge room. The reasoning behind that is sometimes if I’m in bedroom for too long. I start to feel cut off from everyone and that can feel a little confining. Being in the lounge can feel more opening, especially since the couches/lounge that we have is just so darn comfortable!lol

What fictional family would you be a member of?

I would love to be a member of the Undómiel. Which, for those who do not know. Is a Middle Earth family and consists of Arwen and Elrond and Galadriel.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

This week I can definitely say my family. I got to spend a lot of the week with them before they all left to their various places. I love being with them, honestly if I could live with them all the time…I would!lol

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search, mazes, logic or numeric puzzles, something else, or nothing?

I actually enjoy all of them. Except for numeric puzzles, mainly because though Maths is not my best skill. =P

List at least five favorite treats and it doesn’t necessarily have to be food.

  • Peppermint sticks. I just bought a few of them recently, I haven’t had them for years! They are fantastic!
  • Is there anything better than a bath with nice smelling candles?
  • A hot chocolate on a cold Winters night.
  • Anything nacho cheese Doritos flavoured, you just have to be careful that they don’t have palm oil in them.
  • New clean sheets on the bed =D

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

I have always wanted, but I know I would never ever get. Would be either a Rottweiler or a Husky, or even the two together! I love how they are just so cuddly and they have such a horrible reputation. I’m sensible enough to know that I could never control them though, I am far too laid back.

What is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like.

My natural hair colour is dark brown. I would love though to have fiery red hair…I’ve tried dying my hair, but I would have to completely bleach my hair to get that…Let’s be honest, it’ll probably look great after two washes, and that’s it. I am honest enough to know that I am too lazy to keep up the maintenance.

List at least 5 things that you are good at.

  • Listening.
  • Loving others…hehe
  • Cuddles!

What is your favorite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc)

  • I have a lot of stuffed animals and I love them all,lol
  • Lions
  • Wolves
  • Owls
  • Bulls (but that because I’m a Taurus)
  • Rats
  • Whales
  • Any monkey
  • Really…all of the big cats
  • Hyena
  • Elephants
  • Any animal that’s been on safarilive
  • …Any animal really,lol

My partner just actually cuddling me…Cuddles and nothing else. Usually he tries to tickle me or “feel me up”, he doesn’t ever just “cuddles”,lol…He’s started this new habit as well very recently…If you’ve ever watched Shrek 2…They are on the way to meet Fiona’s “Mum and Dad” and on the way Donkey keeps clicking with his mouth in their ears…Yep, my partner keeps doing that,lol
