there’s no place like home

June 19, 2012

“‘tell me something about yourself, and the country you came from,’ said the scarecrow, when she had finished her dinner.  so she told him all about kansas, and how gray everything was there, and how the cyclone had carried her to this queer land of oz.  the scarecrow listened carefully, and said,

‘i cannot understand why you should wish to leave this beautiful country and go back to the dry, gray place you call kansas.’

‘that is because you have no brains,’ answered the girl.  ‘no matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful.  there is no place like home.’

the scarecrow sighed.”

-the wizard of oz, my favorite of all favorite children’s stories.  because it is, after all, about a spirited and fashion-conscious midwestern girl.    

what? like it’s creepy to have pictures of your old house on your computer?
