321 quote me, cinderella today

I must have been very very bad in a previous life……..I was tagged by CrushedCaramel to participate in the 321 Quote me challenge, seemingly precipitated by HER nomination to do it from Rory…..that Bloke is working his way into a knuckle sandwich, lemme tell ya.

Now, I have to admit,…I read Mel’s post and while I admired it for it’s romantic yet snarky nature I had no idea what I as a nominee was supposed to be doing….

So I read Rory’s post…..he, after all, seemed to be the naughty instigator of the entire thing……

Rory had instructions. Here, let me show you:

Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me!

Thank the Selector  

Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.

Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’

Note: Although this is the topic for today there is no specific deadline to it, meaning you can answer as and when.

Okay..let’s try to follow these rather uninformative rules and see where it gets us.

Thank you Mel of CrushedCaramel for both the nomination and the explosive brain trauma of trying to understand what you want from me…….

quotes……..quotes from what exactly?

Cinderella the Book? the Movie? the horrid television show from the 1990’s?

and today implies it is a relevant story to tell little girls and boys.

Now while I admire the Disney Company for their hard work and employment of many women when women weren’t easily employed…I think the Cinderella story is just awful! EVIL stepmother? Needs a man to save her from her life? Shoes conquer all?

Once again, I find myself in a leaky rowboat without any paddles drifting towards Niagara Falls and certain death (of this blog) and failing to comply with the “rules” of this challenge.


“And where there is goodness, there is magic”

and as I have proved within this post……..

“even miracles take a little time”


Now to nominate…..I could be really awful and nominate people I know who NEVER do challenges and this Cinderella thing would die a rapid death……but I like Rory (yes, even when I become annoyed by his challenges) so……

  1. Barbara at teleportingweena!
  2. J-Dub
  3. Cheryl (the bag lady)


Frankly, all of them are far more capable of figuring out what this challenge is about than I. Go forth and enjoy their work.

  1. That was super Suze!…
    …these 3.2.1 Quote Me challenges are completely open to interpretation – you did great!
    I agree there are certain aspects of the Cinderella story that suck.
    Sorry I didn’t put the rules in my post. Normally I do…my bad! I came from work at midnight and saw the challenge from Rory and realized I better do it straight away or it was probably going to fall by the way.

  2. You did great Suze – Cinderella Today is as Mel suggest open to interpretation. have you never been nominated by me do a 321? Looking at the new batch which began this month after an absence of a few months since July when it was daily and ran for a few months from May – l see you haven’t which of course can be easily remedied 🙂


    All of the 321’s are open to interpretation from the blogger. Perhaps l shall nominate you for the next one and title the topic ‘Knuckle Sandwiches’ 🙂

    Of course, you are right there are many variations of the Cinderella story and because of interpretation and l wanted to update it, l added the today aspect to it to represent a more cynical or modern uptake to the story.

    You did great 🙂

    1. nope, never done a 321 before. I read several of them trying to figure out what was “needed”…determined that each one varied significantly from the one before and just said “write whatever”……glad it turned out okay..and NOOOOOOOOOO, no knuckle sandwiches!

  3. Reblogged this on A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip! and commented:
    You see, the beauty of 321 is the interpretation itself, and not just how a blogger decides to quote on the topic. Despite everything, l think Suze did a grand job 🙂
