Dropping in on the 'Mad Hatters Tea Party'

See also

Saturday, August 2, 2014: You're playfully quick witted, overly dramatic and quite talkative today. Ideas... perhaps grandiose and nonsensical... flow like quicksilver providing flashes of vision, insight and inspiration. But... it also could seem as if you've dropped in on the "Mad Hatter's Tea Party". (Read Chapter 7: A Mad Tea Party)

Today it's best to watch your mouth because fiery speech and hot debates are likely. This could be stimulating or challenging, depending on just how much you enjoy verbal gymnastics. But keep in mind that like the Mad Hatter, whose mind jumps all over the place, others might not understand or appreciate your quick wit or your colorful... perhaps nonsensical... repartee, and might even think that you've gone mad as a hatter.

So... Join the party or walk away... but don't say something you'll later regret or get so caught up in proving your point that you lose all objectivity. Expand you point of view and take in the broader implications of what's happening around you. Remember to take notes because one idea will quickly spark another and it's likely your train of thought will be a bit like surfing the web... which could leave you wondering, "How did I get to here from there?".

Today's Quote

'Have some wine,' the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.

Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. 'I don't see any wine,' she remarked.

'There isn't any,' said the March Hare.

'Then it wasn't very civil of you to offer it,' said Alice angrily.

'It wasn't very civil of you to sit down without being invited,' said the March Hare.

'I didn't know it was your table,' said Alice; 'it's laid for a great many more than three.'

'Your hair wants cutting,' said the Hatter. He had been looking at Alice for some time with great curiosity, and this was his first speech.

'You should learn not to make personal remarks,' Alice said with some severity; 'it's very rude.'

The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, 'Why is a raven like a writing-desk?'

'Come, we shall have some fun now!' thought Alice. 'I'm glad they've begun asking riddles. — I believe I can guess that,' she added aloud.

'Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?' said the March Hare.

'Exactly so,' said Alice.

'Then you should say what you mean,' the March Hare went on.

'I do,' Alice hastily replied; 'at least — at least I mean what I say — that's the same thing, you know.'

'Not the same thing a bit!' said the Hatter. 'You might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see"!'

'You might just as well say,' added the March Hare, 'that "I like what I get" is the same thing as "I get what I like"!'

'You might just as well say,' added the Dormouse, who seemed to be talking in his sleep, 'that "I breathe when I sleep" is the same thing as "I sleep when I breathe"!'

'It is the same thing with you,' said the Hatter, and here the conversation dropped, and the party sat silent for a minute, while Alice thought over all she could remember about ravens and writing-desks, which wasn't much.

The Hatter was the first to break the silence. 'What day of the month is it?' he said, turning to Alice: he had taken his watch out of his pocket, and was looking at it uneasily, shaking it every now and then, and holding it to his ear.

Alice considered a little, and then said 'The fourth.'

'Two days wrong!' sighed the Hatter. 'I told you butter wouldn't suit the works!' he added looking angrily at the March Hare.

'It was the best butter,' the March Hare meekly replied.

'Yes, but some crumbs must have got in as well,' the Hatter grumbled: 'you shouldn't have put it in with the bread-knife.'
