Wicked Witch Day, Frankenstein Friday, October 27th

And we are entering the Halloween time zone...

Wicked Witch Day

Hmmm, let's see what we can do today, we could read the book Wicked, we could listen to the soundtrack Wicked, if we are lucky enough, we can go see the musical Wicked, or we can just paint our faces green and wear all black and hum "I'm Not That Girl" all day.

Frankenstein Friday

The last Friday before Halloween is always Frankenstein Friday. If you choose to celebrate Frankenstein over Witches, than I would recommend watching Young Frankenstein. We can also paint our faces green and wear black, but walk around with stiff limbs and mumbling "Putting on the Ritz".

Have a spooktacular day!

Years ago I saw Young Frankenstein in Israel; with Hebrew subtitles. A sequence in the beginning went like this:

"Aifo ze'ev?"

"Shama ze'ev. O oolai shama ze'ev."

which translates to

"Where's the wolf?"

"There's the wolf. Or maybe there's the wolf."

Puns don't translate.

"Werewolf?" "There wolf."

Oh that makes me smile. :) But yeah, I never thought about it before, but I guess that movies heavy in puns probably would not be funny at all in other languages. Sad. It makes me wonder what type of language play I am missing when I watch foreign films.

I think about that a lot.

I just stopped by to make sure you weren't kidding.

You weren't.

Add this to the list.
