Hi, I am Vickie Retro, you may remember my "sexy retro" articles ...if not see below for the best of me:
This year, I will share with YOU... mylunakiss readers and voyeur's the hidden meanings behind music, fables, stories and legends. I will leak and untangle the mythical, misunderstood or gossip monger stories like pretty webs in search of the truth.

I can't think of anything more sexy than mystery, misunderstandings or mind games.

Well, back to Alice in Wonderland; according to Wikipedia Alice's Adventures in Wonderland original 1865 novel was written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.[1] It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world (Wonderland) populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.

The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children according to Lenny's Alice in Wonderland site.

The mystery behind 10/6 on the Mad Hatter's hat which says '10/6 is a price tag in 'old' English money: pounds, shillings and pennies, which was then written as l/s/d. Do you see how the myth started?

According, to Lewis Carol, "Hatter used to carry about hats to sell: and even the one that he's got on his head is meant to be sold. You see it's got its price marked on it - a "10" and a "6" - that means "ten shillings and sixpence."

Did you know that the Alice in Wonderland book has been in continous print for over 100 years? Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been translated into at least 97 languages. There are hundred editions of the book, as well as countless adaptations in other media, especially theatre and film.

The Queen of Hearts "which is not the Red Queen, Lewis Caroll wrote of two queens" was believed by some to be a caricature of Queen Victoria, with elements of reality that Dodgson felt correctly would make her at once instantly recognizable to parents reading the story to children, and also fantastical enough to make her unrecognizable to children. 

I personally think that the "Red Queen" was a naughty version of Marie Antoinette...aka the Queen of Fury (Lewis Carroll's name for the Red Queen)

Remember crazy is unique and being late is rude and saying whatever is on your mind is okay as long as you can tolerate your own blunt statements.
