positive thinking

Last night I met up with my very good friend Shiler. We went for a couple of beers and loads of girlie talk - we had lots to catch up on as she has been away for a good few months.

We got talking about going through different faces in life, and how somtimes you feel all settled and want to live an averageJoe-life but in the next minute have a crisis and want to travel the world. I guess most people can recognize the feeling. I for one hate it, but then Shiler said something that I will keep in mind next time I start doubting what to do with my life:

I should live in a constant life crises-
I have so much fun whilst being messed up!

Talk about positive thinking! I love it. So thank you Shiler!

night terrors

I woke up in the middle of the night, being quite shaken with a very bad dream. My left arm was numb, and as I looked down to my left side Kif was curled up on my arm with his head in my armpit, snoring away.

As I moved my head back again, a paw reached out and gently touched my nose; Tylor was stretched out on top of me and I must've woken him up as I woke up myself.

It is wonderful being completely smothered with cat love - especially after a nightmare. However, I can't help but wondering if I had the nightmare just because I was completely smothered in cats?

2009 in Review

This is the last post for the year 2009, and I would be remiss if I did not mention the most significant events of not only this year, but of the collective history of our planet.

Of course I'm referring to the unveiling of the SDF-1, and the subsequent extraterrestial attacks that Earth has experienced at the hands of the invaders known as the Zentradi. Only time will tell how our planet's first encounter with aliens will affect our future, but until then, I've still got a blog to maintain. This is a drawing of Commander Lisa Hayes, first officer of the SDF-1:

Here's to a 2010 with less alien attacks and continued ultra-nerdy blogging by yours truly... SEE YA NEXT YEAR, KIDS!

Kensei Nikorasu!

Clad in a festive holiday cardigan, and armed with an indestructable black blade, Sword Saint Nicholas ventures into primal forests to carve wondrous toys out of granite and petrified wood for the virtuous children of the world. For wicked children, Sword Saint Nicholas has a different gift--a swift death at the end of his black blade!

What is this hero's connection to the Shinobi Santa, Kage Kringle???

Happy Holidays, Folks!

sweaters on my mind

Tsumori Chisato Cat Line Dot Knit Dress

famous people

I've never been one to read gossip magazines or know who's who in the famous circle of people.

Once, when a friend's mum told me something about someone apearantly famous, I asked her who it was and what she was famous for. My friend's mom looked horrified and asked me "Don't you know who Farrah Fawcett (or whoever she was talking about) is?!" I shook my head and said "I'm pretty sure Farrah Fawcett doesn't know who I am either?"

See, I don't get it. Why is someone famous more interesting than our next door neighbours?

Once, I went into my friend's coffee shop and ordered a coffee. The place was mobbed and I couldn't find anywhere to sit, but then spotted an empty chair next to an old man. I asked him if the place was taken. It wasn't and so I sat down.

No sooner than I had done so as I noticed all eyes were on me. I asked the old man why everyone was staring, and could he please tell me if I had a bogey hanging out from my nose or something else that was getting everyones attention.

The man laughed and said "Don't worry, they're not staring at you. It's me they're looking at!"
"Why? Are you famous or something?" I asked him, half joking. " Kind of..." he replied, and then we went on talking about my new tattoo and the weather. He was lovely and asked me lots of questions about my life and why I was living abroad. Then some woman turned up, and he excused himself and left with the woman.

The following day my friend (who owned the coffee shop) came up to me and said "you've got some balls! Sitting next to John Cleese and chatting away!"

And, well, I do know who John Cleese is. I just didn't recognise him...


The right half (her right, not ours) of this image was drawn first, and then copied and flipped to create a whole image. I cheated insofar as I checked my progress as I went.

I think real life would be better if it involved less last-minute X-Mas shopping + fighting off a sore throat, and more barbarian elf princesses + gratuitous cleavage. Just saying.

the poshest restroom in town!

I bought this old, wooden Traveller's Trunk in a second hand shop recently. It is rock solid with metal gables. My plan was to - somehow - use it as a cat litter tray. Today I finally got around to do it:

I sawed out one of the side panels.

Inside I placed the cat litter tray. Eventually I will remove the lid of the tray, but for now I want everything to be as familiar as possible for the cats when they visit the toilet...

Tylor watched the whole thing. A bit sceptical at first, but then he baptised the new, chique restroom and seemed quite happy about it too!

Tsumori Chisato Metallic Knit Sweater Dress

Ariel, Schmariel...

... For my money, the Chicken of the Sea mermaid was always much more attractive than the Little Mermaid!

Just FYI, my drawing is based on the classic Chicken of the Sea mascot, not the current one, which is pretty generic. That's all I've got. I think I'm gonna go make myself a sandwich.
