Day 20 and Museful Monday!

First of all, I am over at Sandra Sookoo's blog today for Museful Monday, talking about the waiting game in publishing and comparing it to Monopoly! Check it out!!!

And for this 20th day of the A-Z Challenge, the letter T, I have decided to talk about Titanic.

Just a week or so ago was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. April 15th was a Sunday, and since the A-Z Challenge does not do Sundays, I figured I'd just wait until T day to post about this :)

I have always been intrigued by the sunken ship. But it wasn't until the Titanic movie that I really got a sense of what it might have been like for those aboard. The fear they must have felt. I can't even imagine being on the ship those last moments, or even being one of the lucky ones in a lifeboat who sat back and watched in horror. If there's one thing Titanic had taught the world, it was not to be cocky...and horrible things can happen even to things/people that are thought to be invincible.

And yeah, the love story between Jack and Rose was fictional, but still. It took my breath away to think that there may have been other romances like theirs aboard the ship....lost loves.

And that scene in the cargo in the car...the hand on the fogged up window. OMG!!!! So hot!!!!

I read recently that there were many teens in high school, who seeing Titanic for the first time with it's rerelease in theaters now, hadn't even known Titanic was a true story...that a ship had actually sank like that. Sad.


  1. It doesn't surprise me that some teens don't know it was a real event. They don't seem to know a lot of things that they should--and yet education ends up on the chopping block every time cuts are made. It is sad.

    BTW, I love your blog's background. So pretty!

  2. Awwwe...thanks! is really sad. So many districts around here are making more cuts.
