TASKS AND BOOK
Task 1: Write a silly poem or limerick poking fun at the fiction character of your choice.
Ode to Mary Yellan (Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier)
She arrives at her family's inn
And is almost beaten and done in
By her uncle who is a nasty guy
While her aunt stands idly by
She realizes that she is not on stable ground
And proceeds to walk all around
Meeting men wherever she goes
And finding out a secret that leaves her low
She eventually makes it out alive
And runs off with Jem who is vile
Task 2: Share your favorite gravestone epitaph (you know you have one).
I adore the below because of the pettiness involved.
May eternal damnation be
Upon those in Whaling Port.
Who, without knowing me,
Have maliciously vilified me.
May the curse of God
Be upon them and theirs.
According to local folklore, Mary was at odds with her neighbors in Whaling Port over the number of cats she owned. The neighbors went to court to try to get this headstone changed or removed, but the stone carver had a signed contract and payment in full, so he had to fulfill Mary's wishes.
Task 3: Create an altar (either digital or physical) for your favorite book, series, or book character, and post a picture of it. Inclusion of book cover encouraged.
Apologies for how this turned out!
Task 4: If you like Mexican food, treat yourself to your favorite dish and share a photo of it.
Ordered this for my lunch today! Yum! Spicy mini tacos. I could have eaten 6 more.
