Wow. Howdy!

I have been dressing like a child.

An odd, odd child.

I've been wearing my hair in plaits, and dressing in a swingy skirt, over-the-knee stripy black, white, grey and silver socks, a black v-neck under a little black cardigan, and my very much-beloved mary janes. (I have the dark cherry shiny ones.)

I've also been wearing my new plastic sushi necklace from Girl Props. I know. A plastic sushi necklace. Shaddup.

Ummm, other than the personal aesthetics, I've been concentrating a lot (no, not in the way of that famous blonde joke: "Why did the blonde stare at the orange juice?") on my drawings. I did the Teeny.

That's pretty much the actual size of it. Someone, mentioning no names, suggested I should do the same but on a larger scale. So I'm doing one that's A4, but with the same level of detail. I have spent a lot of the past few days with my eyes about four inches away from the page, making sure I don't fuck it up. It gets to the stage where Matt says something to me, and I don't realise until two minutes later that he's said anything. He had to take the sketchbook away from me the other night because it got to the point where I couldn't unbend my hand, but if I put the book down it just called to me, and I'd think "I could just do a little more..."

I think I've spent about eight hours on it, so far, and I'm nowhere near even halfway through.

My eyes hurt.

Why DID the blonde stare at orange juice?

Because it said 'Concentrate'.

Wow, those shoes certainly are. . .well, they're certainly shoes. Maybe I need some with thick, thick soles like that, so I can hit my head on streetlamps.

And that drawing of yours reminds me of the little paper-cutout pictures I used to do. I agree with Nettie, you need to do a wall mural like that. Perhaps the Queen will commission you to paint the walls of Edinburgh Castle in a nice pattern of that type!
