Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.

i feel this way about my booze too.
“A dazzling blonde beauty in a blue polka dot dress, clings longingly to an oversized bottle of Persan Export. Set against a dramatic navy blue background, her passionate embrace can only hint at the wondrous sweet Liqueur that lies within the majestic bottle with a bold lion on the label. A large and striking design that speaks lovingly to the viewer.”
The original stage incarnation of Frankenstein’s monster, by actor T.P. Cooke, here in Paris in 1826. Cooke originated the role in 1823, and Mary Shelley herself was in the audience.
It looks like the monster has, at least, always been green.
Found at Frankensteinia, the Frankenstein Blog.

May you have Christmas in the jungle with a robot.
