Nomes like color in gems and stories

If you buy those unfrozen concentrate juice mixes, Welch's grape juice is better than grape Juicy Juice. I'm just saying.

Anyway, I finished reading The Emerald Wand of Oz today. I first heard about this book years ago, but it took a long time for it to be published. I believe it might be the first actual Oz novel to be officially licensed by the Baum Trust, not that this really means anything. It's not the best recent Oz book I've ever read, but it was good, and quite professionally written. It did seem short, though. It doesn't LOOK any shorter than any of the original Oz books, none of which were very long, but it seemed like less happened in it, or something.

And mmpoetatheart asked me these interview questions, so I'm going to try to answer them.

1. What's your favorite season and why?
I'd probably have to say summer, although it can get really hot sometimes. Still, better too hot than too cold, in most circumstances. Spring is better in terms of temperature, but my allergies tend to ruin it for me.

2. Who is your favorite actor and why?

Unfortunately, I really don't have a good answer for this one. I should probably get one, since I'm inevitably going to be asked this question in surveys and such (see, for instance, the one I took yesterday). I guess the best actors are ones who make it look like they're not acting, but that doesn't really answer the question. Sorry.

3. If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?

What WOULDN'T I do with it? {g} Seriously, I'd probably buy a house and a few fun things for myself and people I know, pay off the rest of the money I owe my dad for my car, make some charitable contributions, and then put the rest into savings. Pretty stock answer, but I really think that's what I would do. I guess it would be more fun if I were to say, "I'd buy my own rhinoceros!" or something, but I most likely wouldn't.

4. What is your all time favotite book?

I'd probably have to say The Patchwork Girl of Oz, my favorite of the Oz series. Through the Looking-Glass is also a perpetual favorite of mine.
