Alice in Wonderland

9th May 2009 ~ Hi! I'm Alice & I'm 12 years old. My hobby is photography & I like taking pics of nature, especially of flowers. Let me tell you a story about that time I was snapping some shots in a flower & veggie garden near my home. It was a blazing hot day & I was a little dizzy from the heat. Suddenly, I saw some movement under a big bush. Went to investigate & found a large hole hidden by the bush. It looked so dark & forbidding. Anyway, I'm afraid of the dark & was backing away when a force pulled me into the hole... like a black hole in space. OMG! I must have crossed the event horizon! Helplessly, I fell & fell, endlessly falling till after an unaccountable time had past, I landed with a gentle bump... in a greenery Wonderland!

Wonderland


Wonders of wonders... there were flowers everywhere. Sweet smelling perfumed flowers surrounding me.

Flower Power!


When I looked up at the sky, it seemed like I'm in paradise.

Paradise Lost


I sort of remembered a book read to me by my parents when I was younger... something about a little girl falling down a rabbit burrow. Oh... never mind that. I'm lost, hungry, thirsty, tired & wanna go home. Saw some wild berries, but I dare not try them as they might be poisonous.

Three Berries


So I asked the flowers where can I get a bite & which way home.

Yummy Flowers!


The lovely flowers told me to look for a cat, a Cheshire cat. What's a Cheshire cat? No problem, I know a cat when I see one! Meow, meow? =P
I came across some mushrooms & asked them whether they saw a cat? They told me they had lost a pipe-smoking caterpillar. Dumb mushrooms!

Brightly Orange


I explored further & found some golden rabbits. Asked if they had seen a cat. They told me they lost their top hat! Silly rabbits!

Wabbits!


I saw some orchids racing by & followed them thinking they might know the way.

Racing Orchids


Suddenly, I saw movement in a patch of yellow flowers. It was a cat! A black cat with a ribbon on it's neck. Fancy that! But when I approached, it faded & disappeared! Hey! Come back, you stupid cat!

Flowery Cat


Then I saw it materializing at another patch of flowers.

Meow?


I told it to stop doing it's disappearing trick as I had some questions to ask. Ask away it said & faded away again! Oh dammit! I would have curse & swear if I'm not that thirsty. It's been a lousy hot day!
Then it appeared behind me & said "Can I buy you a drink?" Coca Cola in paradise?!? Who cares, I'm thirsty!

Cat Cola!


Next thing I knew, the cat was playing with my bag. Hey, stop that, you stupid cat! And you haven't answered my questions!

To Bag a Cat


It said "Let's have tea with the queen." Huh? Cat said "Follow me quick." It leaded me to a castle in a park.

Dream Castle


That's where the cat introduced me to the Duchess who was also going to the tea party.

Regent Ginger


On our way, the Duchess hailed the Mock Turtle, but he was too busy emo-ing coz he lost his Rotting Fish dancing partner.

The Tortoise & The Fish


Finally we arrived at the tea party & I was introduced to the Queen of Heart.

Cold Stony Queen


We were served unagi & I asked for ocha.

Unagi Me!


Cheshire cat wanted sake & sashimi.

Cool Cat!


The queen said no, we only have English tea. I argued that since she was serving her guests Japanese food, it must go with Japanese drinks, you dumb blonde! The queen shouted for her flowery guards. "Off with her head!" she screamed & they attacked like X-Wings in the rain.

Attack of the Mad Orchids!


I torn them up & tossed their petals down the drain.
There were too many of them. I'm fighting without gain.

Charge of The Yellow Brigade


Pacman swamping, they cornered me.

Chomp Chomp!


Desperately, I took out my communicator & shouted into it "Beam me up, Scotty!" and Viola! I'm onboard the NCC Enterprise, starship from the fleet of Federation of Hamsters. There's this elf with pointed ears & Beatles haircut. He's a very irritating fellow who kept saluting with 4 fingers & saying "Live long & phosphorous." He explained that what I experienced is a conspiracy by Romulans who were from a distant galaxy, a long long time ago. They were time-warping & destroying alternate universes lead by a Lord Viagra who corrupted the citizens of Wonderland by telling them that he is their father. Pointy ears, Beatles hairstyle is helpless & clueless on what to do to counter the threat. I kicked him out of the command seat & took over. 'Lead, follow or get the hell out of my way' is my motto! Capitan Nikita commanding! Me is going to teach those blue trekkies a lesson they will never forget! We retaliated, went in with phasers firing fiercely, proton torpedoes launching furiously, light sabers swinging wildly...

The Future Begins...


The Hamster of War is unstoppable! We fought till the sky turned red with flames. Take that, you wussies!

Apocalypse Now!


The enemy surrendered, unconditionally peeing in their pants. Lord Viagra went back to being AnyTin Slywalker again, selling insurance. The universe is at peace again. And I crashed into a wedding...

Wedding Crasher


Oh wait! That's another story! Cheshire cat & me will be dreaming of another adventure, to go boldly where no hamster had gone before, to the frontier & beyond! Story is The End!
What? You expect Vulcans' logic & reason in this story?!? Get real! =P

Hi Nikita. I was commenting on an old blog post of yours when I spotted this new one calling for my attention! So I posted my late comment and settled down to follow you into your very special Hengbok wonderland. Soon realized that I needed to loosen up my mind to keep pace, or I'd fall by the wayside. So, I shook off my restrictive logic and things became much clearer!

Very quickly you had some unexpected trouble with an event horizon. Those can be pretty nasty I've heard, so I reckon you were lucky to come out ok on the other side. And in a greenery Wonderland too! Really lucky. I liked the Wabbits with those long pointy ears, listening intently for any approaching disturbance in the Force. That turned out to be you of course - but you're a very nice disturbance obviously, so I doubt they minded.

When I saw Flowery Cat it was like deja vu because I myself photographed a rather special black kitty in a sea of yellow flowers (well, dandelions) just a few weeks ago! He didn't have a red ribbon but he had a pink collar at least, so the similarity was quite spooky. Coincidence, or perhaps the Force at work again, playing tricks on us? Whatever, I hope can show you the picture one day. 'Meow?' was also a very cute shot. Your Mouse is quite handy with that camera huh? 'Brightly Orange' had beautiful composition and colour.

So much more to comment on, but perhaps I better jump to the climax or I'll bore you completely! Pacman swamping, threatening to chomp our beautiful flower heroine to bits - a nasty situation she did so well to get out of! When you got aboard the Enterprise and kicked pointy ears out of the chair, I was like "Yes! Now we'll see some action!". I wasn't disappointed either; you sorted out those blue trekkies good with your hardy no-nonsense attitude. Score one for Capitan Nikita, Hamster of War! Not to be messed with. And don't be speaking any Klingon to her either, or she'll deck you.

Love your writing and invention. Maybe your best line: "The enemy surrendered, unconditionally peeing in their pants". So comical, had me laughing. Also loving the disclaimer for any readers going mentally unstable after reading your story. I think I made it through ok; don't feel too much crazier than normal. Compliments to Hengbok Fashion also, for the striking costume, which boldly went where no costume has gone before. The Force is strong with you for sure Nikita. Live Long and Photo for us! :)

You are such a fun person! :D There is a Botanic Garden here in Porto Alegre, but it's not as beautiful as the one you've been to. Wow, I'm impressed with the amount of exotic flowers!
Your plushie cat is as cute as you are~ ♥ Maybe he would be friends with my plushie bull terrier, XiCO? ;D

Have a nice week, girl!!

Oh, and... I would definitly watch Star Trek if you were in the movie. lol

You have a wonderful week ahead too, my friend!

Two Hengboks? Am I dreaming? Sounds like double-trouble to me. :P However, I echo the call to have you in a Star Trek movie. Never mind what the trekkies think - Capitan Nikita was dynamite! And hey, my radio-kitty wants to be friends with Gigi too! (That link is to the picture I mentioned in my earlier comment; I've now got it on Flickr.)
