Gluing tinsel to your crown.

I just finished reading, at Lisa's insistence, Bridge to Terabithia. I think there was a reason for it that had something to do with the movie adaptation, but I've sort of forgotten what the deal was with that now.

That's probably the saddest fucking children's book I've ever read. If you took a big box of Kleenex and spent three hours reading and re-reading the scene in Little Women where Beth dies, it probably wouldn't be as sad as that book. It may have kind of made me cry, and that's even with having the entire plot spoiled by inadvertently reading a summary before I started the book itself. Jesus Christ that's a sad book.

That's all I've got, really. I'm going to go sniffle in bed now.
