<Shiny's Diary 19 - 앨리스의 증언>
Wherever she goes, Alice makes a big stir, even in court. Have you ever made a stir like that? Usually I try not to, but whenever I go on a blind date, that sort of becomes an issue at my workplace. People ask me why I have such a high standard of men, but I don't. I just want to find someone that I really like. That's all.

<Shiny's Diary 20 - 사건 밝혀내기>
Today in the book, they read a letter-no, actually some verses. Is their your favorite verse that is either from a song, book or a movie? I surely have. It goes like this. "If the road ahead is not so easy. Our love will lead a way for us like a guiding star." It's from Glenn's song. Isn't it beautiful? 

<Shiny's Diary 21 - 이건 말장난이야!>
Alice's sister woke her up and Alice realized that everything was just a dream. How weird feeling would that be? You were hanging out with all that characters for some time, and have to realize that they only existed in your dream. We should have bittersweet feelings for that. Farewell, Alice! 

nothing but (=only)
You're nothing but a pack of cards!

It's a heartache sung by Bonnie Tylor

It's a heartache. 
Nothing but a heartache. 
Hits you when it's too late. 
Hits you when you are down.

Talk about school! I spent three years in a highschool where there was not a single native English speaker. I was always ready to speak some English but the chance didn't come to me easily. When I finally became a university student-well, guess what? -I was on cloud nine.^^

<Shiny's diary 16 - 대구이야기>
Do you like fish? As for me, I love fish. Many people like fish.I think that's why people say, 'There are plenty more fish in the sea. So move on. Don't linger 
around.' Is it a weird logic? I associated the fish we eat with the fish that are referred to as men or women. I 
love this kind of playing on words.

<Shiny's Diary 17 - 법정에 간 앨리스>
Who stole the tart? That reminds me of by Spenser Johnson, which has been a bestseller all over the world. Anyhow, could stealing a pie be a good reason to execute somebody? People! It's just a pie! Then why did you even start to make the pie unless you wanted somebody to eat it? Huh?

<Shiny's Diary 18 - 누가 파이를 훔쳤지?>
Alice is in the court and I envy her so much. You might wonder why. Well... I have this weird fantasy about law, court, cases and all. It started when I first read the book, by John Grisham. That was sort of thick book, but I couldn't stop reading it. So I finished it that night. That was a real page turner.

If I had the power to control time, what would I do? I would time travel to the future and see who my husband would be and whether I would b still as beautiful as I am now. What about time travelling to the past? Hmm... I guess it won't really matter because we should 'let bygones be bygones. Don't you agree?

<Shiny's diary 12 - 여왕과의 만남>

Alice knows how to speak her mind even in front of the crazy, head-cutting-off queen. I love that attitude! I even felt thrilled when she said ,"It's no business of mine."I wonder where she got that bold spirit and think more people in Korea should speak their mind. Don't you agree with me?

<Shiny's diary 13 - 사형수, 체셔 고양이>

According to Alice's description about the croquet ground, the game was just stupid.I bet she was so glad to find the cat that was not insane. I wonder what aliens would think if they observed us from a distance. Would we all look insane in their eyes? Who can define who is insane or not?

<Shiny's diary 14 - 크로켓 경기의 유일한 생존자>
The queen is so cruel and mean. She cuts off people's head so easily. Who in the world is she? Can life be deserted just like that? One day in my dream, while Glenn and I were driving by the coast, we got into a car accident and Glenn died. I cried in my dream and when I woke up, I was really crying. I was so sad holding Glenn who was not alive anymore. We should cherish lives.

Because of the long neck, the pigeon thought Alice was a snake. When I was travelling in Thailand, I happened to see snakes and screamed like hell.I am pretty much sure all the Thai people heard my screaming sound. I couldn't help it because I just hate snakes.

<Shiny's diary 9 - 아기 돼지를 안고 나오며>
Alice holding the pig sort of reminded me of a mother. Being a mother. 
I cannot quite relate to it yet because I think I am still very young. 
However, I can picture myself being someone's beloved wife. Oh! Glenn Medeiros. My first love. Oh! Glenn.

<Shiny's diary 10 - 미친 체셔 고양이?>
Have you ever raised a pet? Once I had a puppy whose name was 누렁이. 
When the puppy was small, it was irresistible. But as time went by, it grew so big that I started to dislike it. One day I let the dog out on purpose and it left us. I was so glad not to see him again. 누렁아! I am sorry~ ^^;

Today in the book, when the mouse said, 'not', Alice took it as a 'knot'. I thought it was a genius line. 'not' and 'knot' sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. I like playing on words. I scream! You scream! We all scream for ice-cream! ^^

<Shiny's diary 5 - 다락방에 꽉찬 앨리스>

Alice ventured to drink the unknown liquid again and became gigantic. She said she was tired of being such a tiny little thing. I envy Alice who can change her body size as she wants. I am so going to the Wonderland!

<Shiny's diary 6 - 귀여운 강아지, 작은 앨리스>
Today in the book, Alice had a little fun with a big puppy. 'A big puppy' sounds truly weird, but that was what happened in the story. When I was young I was almost bitten a dog and ever since then my legs move faster whenever dogs are around.

<Shiny's diary 7 - 버섯의 효과>
This time, Alice's neck became very long. It sort of looked gross but generally I like a long neck. Talk about a long neck! That's what I've always wanted to have. Think about the beautiful neck line. I will look awesome with that.

Alice almost drowned in the pool of tears. I got so scared reading that certain part of the book. When I was young, I accidently mis-stepped and fell into the pond near my house. So until now, I am not a big fan of swimming. Actually I hate swimming.

At any rate, I promise to be there even if I am a little late.

Today Alice drank this weird liquid and became so small that she was the right size for going into her dream garden. Hmm... I wonder what kind of garden it would be. I wish that Alice could meet her prince charming there.

Shiny's diary

Starting today, I began to read a new book. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alice is a very unique girl and I thought she somewhat reminds of me. I have a hunch that I will enjoy reading this book. Hello, Alice! You strange girl. I am Shiny here.

주인공 앨리스는 회중시계를 꺼내 보는 토끼를 따라 이상한 나라로 들어가 몸이 커졌다 작아졌다 하며 믿어지지 않는 사건들을 만들어 낸다. <앨리스> 시리즈는 아주 유명하기 때문에 모든 이야기를 이미 안다고 생각하기 쉽지만 읽으면 읽을수록 새롭고 재미있는 이야기들이 풍성하다. 순수한 기쁨과 슬픔을 맛볼 수 있는 신비한 이야기가 가득한 작품이다. Read&Speak에서는 [Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass-이상한 나라의 앨리스, 거울 나라의 앨리스] 중 [Alice's Adventures in Wonderland-이상한 나라의 앨리스]를 다루기로 한다. 

***********Shiny 김재영이 본 Alice's Advantures in Wonderland*****************

이 책을 몇 달전부터 미리 연구하며, 저는 정말이지 "행복"하게 책을 읽었던 것 같아요. 교훈을 얻을 수 있는 많은 책들, 심오한 의미를 깨달을 수 있는 책들도 좋지만,
앨리스처럼 그저 "후후훗~" 웃으며 아무 걱정없이 책을 읽기는 정말 오랜만이었거든요. 

언제나 예측불허! 늘 새로운 상황에 직면해야하고 재빠르게 적응해야만 무사히 목적지에 도달할 수 있고... 마치 무슨 게임을 하는 기분도 들고 말이죵^^

앨리스 이야기가 영화 매트릭스에 많은 아이디어를 제공했다는 사실도 전혀 놀랍지 않더라구요. 

루이스 캐럴은 어린이를 어른에게 부속된 존재로 여기지 않고 독립된 존재로 인정하였다고 해요. 그래서인지 우리 앨리스는 "하고 싶은 말을 다 하는" 아이랍니다. "어쭈, 이것봐라, 당돌하기도 하지" 하면서도 절대 밉지 않은 앨리스를 만나실 수 있답니다. 

샤이니와 앨리스 이야기를 읽으며 행복한 2월이 되어봐욤^^~

Shiny Dream~
