NARNIA IS REAL AND IT'S FRIDAY

This made my day.  I was studying for a Roman Civilization final until 2 (I think it was 2...) in the morning.  Then woke up at 8 to study until the exam at 1 pm.  It was pretty exhausting, until I was looking through this book and found...

narnia rome real


In case that wasn't clear:  

narnia real country




 NARNIA.  IN THE MIDDLE OF TACITUS' (DEAD ROMAN HISTORIAN'S) BOOK ON ANCIENT ROME.

Searching this on the internet seems difficult, but the same friend for whom I made a C. S. Lewis cake thinks it was somewhere in Turkey.

But yeah...cool stuff.  Also, when we were taking this picture, Tyler-Rose's iPod rejected "Narnia!" and autocorrected to something equally cheerful:


LOL. Marmosets.  Also notice how Google thinks I should be finished with my novel by now. Thanks, Google. -_-

So yeah...Narnia and marmosets!  This is about as smart as I get this Friday afternoon. :)

Don't forget to be a hero with us tomorrow and save a word!

  1. Narnia in Turkey? Oh, snap, that totally adds up!
    A) "Aslan" is Turkic for "lion".
    B) Two words: Turkish delight!
    C.S. Lewis, you sly author, you...

  2. C.S. Lewis totally should have added some talking marmosets to the Chronicles of Narnia. Even with all the mythological creatures that would have been weird. :)

  3. I remember coming across that when I read Tacitus back in the day and totally thinking it was a typo or something. It's so fantastic that Narnia was an actual place.

  4. Ha! I love it! Who knew Narnia was real and that it obviously has something to do with marmosets? :D I wonder if Lewis knew about this. Knowing him, probably.

    I agree with Erin, talking marmosets would have been awesome. Anyway, thanks for making me smile. :)

  6. I had no idea that Narnia was an actual place. Very cool! :-) Hope your exams are going well.

  7. By the way, the "DEAD ROMAN HISTORIAN" would be opposed to the undead Roman historian(s).

  8. EEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    *does Narnia fandom dance*

    Sorry, I'm just completely OBSESSED with Narnia and when I saw this I started hyperventilating.

    Be right back. Gonna go find my pathway to Narnia now.
