Like I said, just got a hankering for drawing in pencil . . .
I read this today.
‘I am looking for someone to create a artistically appalling web sight’
The use of the wrong word for ‘site’ is funny enough— but that typo and the lack of that single vowel is priceless . . . .
Sometimes the most banal things puzzle me – how we tie scarves for example- why do we change?and who starts it? See earlier entry – https://rowlandjones.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/february-challenge-change-part-2-scarf-fashion/
I NEVER use blue ink . . I don’t know why but I just don’t like it….however it was dark as we snuggled down in front of the wood burning stove and I sketched whilst we watched something innocuous on TV. I didn’t realise it was a blue pen… anyway it’s the hand of Constantine taken from a statue at the Capitoline Museum in Rome…. becoming a bit obsessed with this hand ..
I love Italian – it’s a beautiful language and though it can be very difficult at times – the same word can mean doughnut, lifebelt and toilet seat . . . it is very lyrical. Even sayings which exist in English and Italian somehow always turn out more elegantly in Italian. For example ‘When the cats away, the mice will play’ becomes ‘When the cats away, the mice will dance’
I learned a new one this morning. It’s currently -3 deg with a freezing Northern wind giving a serious chill factor down to -10/11. At the local hospital this morning, somebody walked in and left the front door open. In English, we’d probably say ‘were you born in a barn?‘
Somebody said to the offender: ‘were you born in the Colosseum?”
See what I mean?
