Strong Bad, Madonna, Children's Books, the Press, and Me, Alkelda the Gleeful*

I dreamed last night that the press planned a visit to my house to interview me about children's books. Madonna was going to join them because she wanted to learn more about children's literature. I was excited, because Madonna would totally recant her previous statement about children's literature when she saw my books. I just knew she'd want to devote some of her funds to bringing back my beloved out-of-print picture books. I was cleaning and tidying the shelves (and finding various pieces of Lucia's Playmobil accessories among the dust-bunnies) when the alarm clock rang.

It seems only appropriate that I link the classic flash-animation piece where Strong Bad rewrites a children's book called Everyone is Different. For those of you without sound, you may read the transcript here, plus the commentary and Easter Eggs.

*The title of this post was inspired by this book.

I wouldn't mind having a dream like that. My dreams are returning to me slowly but surely. It's been interesting to say the least. Though I have been attempting to get them back for almost a full year now. At least I have snippets in the morning.
