The Hemingway Challenge!

Ernest Hemingway (American novelist, He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954) was once challenged to write a story in six words.

The result: "For sale: baby shoes, never used."

Rumor has it that Hemingway regarded it as his greatest work.
So, go on, write your own six word stories!
I'll make it even easier to you, the editors of BlackBook asked 25 of today’s most renowned writers to offer their own original six-word stories.

Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts is by far my favorite Villain. I've watched the whole movie of Alice in Wonderland because of her. She's sooo FUNNY. Love her quotes, hair, eyeshadow... :P

4 years!

A month a go, my beloved blog has completed 4 years! I'm so sorry dear blog for not remembering it :*

Me time!

Yesterday I went to Manna Center with my friends for a manicure and pedicure.  I needed this "ME" time. On the massage chair. Oh it was sooo amazing!

They applied the red nail polish on my nails.  It's my favorite color.  What's yours?

Pretty Woman

I just felt like watching an old movie again.  This time it was Pretty Woman.  LOVED it! It's been years since the last time I saw it on TV.  

 


Vivian: Can I call you Eddie? 
Edward: Not if you expect me to answer.

[Vivian hops up onto Edward's desk in a sultry pose.] 
Edward: You're on my fax. 
Vivian: Well, that's one I haven't been on before.
 
Vivian: You're late!
Edward: You're stunning!
Vivian: You're forgiven.

Vivian: I want the fairy tale.

Happy Man: Welcome to Hollywood! What's your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don't; but keep on dreamin' - this is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin'.
