Japser Fforde Quote of the Day!
“Sorry,” he (Hamlet) said, rubbing his temples. “I don’t know what came over me. All of a sudden I had this overwhelming desire to talk for a very long time without actually doing anything.”
-Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten
My favorite thing about Jasper Fforde is his ability to use characters (such as Hamlet) that we already know, love and/or hate, in a way that is simultaneously unique to him and true to the character. Take this quote in context or out, I’ll still love it. Above it a very young version of my dad to illustrate Hamlet, well, because he’s making that face. Classic, isn’t it? One more reason not to tell my family about this blog!
Happy Wednesday everyone! (it is not this beautiful here today, I just wish it was. This picture is from last year)
