Five Reasons

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try! ~ Ted Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!

Five Reasons The Best Writers Come From Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory:

1. They can settle their nerves by chewing on the everlasting gobstobber constantly.

2. Chocolate rivers.

3. No need to worry about stopping mid-chapter for house cleaning or other menial jobs -- they have the Oompa-Loopahs.

4. Don't need to stop for dinner, just chew that gum with a five-course meal (though they probably should spit it out before dessert).

5. Whenever they need inspiration, they can take the boat or the glass elevator for some amazing ideas.

"[This] is a hilarious, smart, sexy novel with a heart of gold." -- Susan Wiggs

"[Lippi] turns her buoyant creative talents to the romantic comedy genre with an effervescent tale of a trio of offbeat Yankee filmmakers plunked down deep in the heart of Dixie." -- Booklist

I liked the original Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder.

I've been reading your reviews and so far I found a couple of books that I've added to my book list.

I have never seen Willie Wonka...either movie.

Willie Wonka RULES!

Gene Wilder was absolutely amazing in that movie. It is on my top, um, oh...20 list. Yeah, 20!

I like your meme very much.

We have a lot in common. I have two dogs I adore, and then there's chocolate. A question. You've got a link to the quiz: What kind of chocolate are you?

My reply: What kind of chocolate am I not?
