Favorite Quote:
"It is good to work hard and live long and then be thanked." -Akira Kurosawa's Dreams


Rewriting lyrics
And soft chocolate truffles,
Dark, ghoulish stories,
And cold cake that crumbles.
All of the people who
Live in Beijing,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Tightly-bound books,
And Akutagawa
Striped socks and long socks,
And Shojo Beat manga,
Strict ascetics who
Read the old Tao Te Ching,
These are a few of my favorite things.



Boys who read books and have long crooked noses
The many remakes of the story of Moses,
And tight leather gloves that cling to my skin,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the tests fail,
When the hearts break,
When I'm feeling sad.
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad!


The author's comments:
I decided to rewrite the lyrics to My Favorite Things, from The Sound of Music. This was just for fun.
