In Search Of Monsters #5 Talking Teacups? Tsukumogami

Hello bookworms
It’s been a while. Where have I been? Oh well, I have been studying all the time.
 I wanted to write this quick update on my blog.
I have been thinking about my feature “Weird Legends”. Now, if you tell me that I am weird (I get that a lot), I gladly accept it. I don’t take it as an offensive word. When I am saying “Weird Legends”, I am thinking “awesome, unique, amazing legends”, not “weird” in a bad way. I know I am borrowing from other cultures, so I don’t want to be misunderstood. Even though for me “weird” means good, it may not be the same for someone else. I don’t want to offend anyone, so from now on “Weird Legends” will be called “In search of monsters”.
The feature won’t change. I will do memes, interviews, and I will provide information. This feature is supposed to be funny, and it’s main purpose is to bring a smile on your face with my crazy imaginary conversations.

I am pretty sure, that you have all watched “Beauty and The Beast”. I am also pretty sure, that you think those animate objects are funny, and cute.
Funny? Cute? Nu-uh , not in my blog.
Let me introduce to you the famous Tsukumogami. Never heard of that? Were have you been all your life? How can I put this simply?
Tsukumogami are animate household objects. 
 They are supposed to be harmless, but they will play some pranks. They have the capacity to get revengeful upon those who are wasteful. So, be careful…
Imagine how cool would it be to talk to your pen for example. Or to your cup of tea…
It would be like:
Anila: Oh hello Dracula Jr! (Do not ask!)
Dracula Jr. and Frankenstein Jr.
My tea cup Dracula Jr.: Hello Nila! Why aren’t you studying?
Anila: Well, you know there’s this good book, and…
Dracula Jr.: Anila! Stop procrastinating!
Anila: But I am kinda hungry right now!
Dracula Jr.: Stop it! You got loads of work to do!
My tea spoon Frankenstein Jr.: Sweetheart, don’t forget you have to post “In Search of Monsters” in your blog today.
Anila: What??? Oh God, I forgot!
Frankenstein Jr.: You had to write about us today. How could you forget? I thought you loved us.
Anila: Frankie, stop being so emotional!

Yeah, it takes a lot to handle them.
They still look cute to me, but again I kinda think that “The Alien” looks cute too! (No? I would love to have a pet just like him. Am I being crazy again? Oh sorry!)

Have a great day!
Happy Scary Reading!

    Haha, it's nice to know that Frankenstein Jr. can talk so...sweetly ;D. And be "so emotional", of course!

    Lovely vignette as usual. You never fail to put a smile on my face - and believe me, I could really use one today...
    A vignette with that Alien pet would be lovely as well, now that I think of it ;) (hint hint...).

    1. Awww... thank you! So sweet as usual. Stop giving me ideas, Roberta!

  2. Haha! I'm cracking up at this! I'm right there with you on the weirdness. I learned long ago not to care and just do my thing. I love this post! I need to visit your blog more often. In other news, I have a giveaway going on for a horror novel you might be interested in.
