62 Days! - The Joys Of Paint

Renn17

312 views

Today has been one of the most boring days in my 6th form life. I was so bored that in Psychology I decided to draw a dinosaur on paint:

blogentry-156299-0-82497800-1320163499_t

That was my excitement for the day. Also, I balanced a pile of 5 Jaffacakes on my left cheek, which was satisfactory.

My skin feels like it's burning up constantly which is pretty annoying. I solved the problem of my eyes constantly watering by buying eye drops. Don't get how putting more liquid in my eyes would help but it has! My lips are the worse, they're not dry but they feel...rubbery? I have this urge to jump face-first onto the floor and see if I bounce.

That's it. Very short blog but I wanted to share my image of Francis the Dinosaur.

My first thought was to ask if Mr Dinosaur had a name, but you answered that at the end. I appreciate your efficiency.

Round of applause for your Paint skills, too! biggrin.png

I did wonder if the Jaffa cake thing was part of a new regimen or something. I don't know if the jelly bit in the middle has much vitamin C, but I suppose it's the right consistency for a mask or something. I assume you ate them afterwards, in which case that consumption of jelly brings you a step closer to being wobbly-voiced. With that in mind, perhaps best to wait a little while before you try and beat your record. tongue.png

I drew that with a laptop pad-no mouse! It took the majority of the lesson to complete but it's worth it to see the murderous grin on Francis' face. Personally I'm most proud of my *realistic* sun; I was so close to drawing a smiley face and sunglasses.

Yes, a brand new regimen created by me! First you scoop out the jelly and smother it evenly across your face. Then, after 1 minute 4 seconds, exfoliate with the chocolate base. Lastly, grab the sponge-cake and wipe away the jelly and chocolate and eat remains. Disclaimer: May not cure acne. May cause obesity and dodgy looks/hackies.

Yeah, maybe you're right...I'll start balancing kit kats instead!

I don't know what Jaffacakes are (you crazy foreigners and your weird foods), but after seeing Francis eating people I feel warm happy glow. I particularly like the attention to detail of the gums and underbelly. As Francis would say, "Moar, moarr!!".

Moar pictures that is. Thought I better clarify. And I hate the trackpad, so I'm suitably impressed that you were mouseless.

:o You've never lived! Little sponge bases with orange jelly in the middle, covered in chocolate. Om nom nom!

And! Here's an interesting fact for you: despite them being called cakes, we usually refer to them as biscuits because they're only small. You may have gathered that by the way Renn balanced five on her face; she'd have to have a head as big as Francis the Dinosaur to balance five cakes on her face!

The "cake or biscuit" debate is obviously a fascinating one so we kept it going for years. However, the argument was finally settled when McVitie's, the company who make Jaffa Cakes, settled the case in court and won the right to call them cakes. The reason they went to such great lengths is because, in the UK, VAT is payable on chocolate covered biscuits, but not on chocolate covered cakes. So, they escape having to to pay VAT.

See, told you it was interesting!

Of course, if Renn's right about using the three components of the Jaffa Cake as a skin care product and we can get that verified by a scientist, or even just someone wearing a long white coat who claims to be a scientist, we could seek reclassification of Jaffa Cakes' product status, agree to settle with the company out of court and become millionaires! I'd be willing to do my bit for a share: Jaffa Cake only regimen for the next three weeks!

gasp.gif Jaffa cakes are the cakey treats of the Gods. They were actually supposed to be used in the Last Supper but someone ate the last one and they had to use Wafery bread instead-but thank you U N B L V B L (did I get it right?) Any requests for particular pictures? A half rabbit/half duck perhaps?

Why do biscuits have VAT but not cakes?! That's so random.

or even just someone wearing a long white coat who claims to be a scientist
lol.gif

Hahaha! I must try these cakey treats of the Gods. I wonder if I can get them here. Anything that was pinched from the Last Supper must be pretty darned awesome.

You did get it right, well done! It's only taken 4,228 attempts :D Hehehe.

Okay I just looked up "VAT" for clarification, and then Jaffa cakes... Which looks suspiciously like biscuits to me...

HM Revenue and Customs state that cakes are classed as food and have a zero Value-added Tax rating. However, biscuits are classed as "luxury items" and attract 17.5% Value-added Tax as a result.

True, it's one of the few things in life I actually remember. Ask me anything important and I won't have a clue because my head is just full of rubbish like this. lol.gif

Despite winning the case and branding them as cakes on the official Jaffa Cake website, McVitie's still list them on their website under their range of biscuits. eusa_eh.gif

I never thought to mention what that actually was. I suppose the equivalent in Australia is GST, only the rate is a lot lower than here. I reckon that's another reason we'd all be better off moving to Australia.

I wouldn't have to worry about bills or finding a place to stay if I moved to Australia either - Gutterflower on the Org says I can live with her and she'll feed me and take care of me. All I have to do is say random English things on demand because she really likes my accent. Sounds like a plan to me! biggrin.png

If that was me trying to use my English accent to move into someone's house it just wouldn't work. Last time I talked to someone foreign (a Canadian girl) she said I sounded 'half Jamaican, half Scottish'.

Clearly, she didn't have a clue what she was talking abooot...

It's the Yorkshire accent you see, can't beat it. :P There was a thread in the chat section of the Org once where we recorded ourselves and I just rambled on about something random. Next thing, I got loads of requests from people asking me to record things for them. Turns out I can read scripts and speak at the same time, I amazed by that. Maybe I should give voice-overs a try. If Sean Bean can get away with it in his broad Sheffield accent, I'm sure I could too. :lol:

Unblvbl, you can totes get jaffa cakes here. In those little specialty shops....I warn you though.....just buy the one packet and open when you have friends over, otherwise its almost certain you will eat the whole packet. Personally, I've never done that (eaten a whole packet). No.

I love Francis. I bet he would love to have a little paint friend to play with.

I was once told by an English chap that I don't have an accent. Even Australians tend to ask me where I'm from. So I'm pretty sure I must have some weird pseudo accent going on as well.

Plus I'm one of those people that inadvertently mimics the accent of the person I'm talking to.

Hahaha! So want to hear this half-Jamaican/half-Scottish accent!! Yorkshire, hmm... Trying to think of a Yorkshire accent. Is there a TV programme with a character with a Yorkshire (Yorkshirian? Yorkanshire? Yorky?) accent?

Hmm Resery, are these Jaffa cakes another one of those terrible-for-you Amercian products that one I try I'll randomly start craving in the middle of a conversation with someone, and get completely distracted and start drooling and murmuring ("gaaaahhh... peanut butter cups") at totally inappropriate moments? I already have enough of a problem laughing at inappropriate times (damn you giggaloop!), thank you very much.

Om were you born in "sub-tropical" Australia? Because if so, I highly doubt you have a neutral accent. I bet you have a really ocker accent, but in comparison with all the other *insert state name*-ers, you sound like you have a weird pseudo-accent? Ah yes, you have to be careful accent-ghosting sometimes, because if you're not very good (like me) you sound like you're patronising/poking fun at the other person, haha!

If you've ever seen a film with Sean Bean in it - Lord of the Rings, for example - you'll have heard a Yorkshire accent. Or if you Google it, you'll probably find videos of broad accents which make us sound like we don't actually know how to speak English. lol.gif

I'm quite proud of my accent though and I do actually think its an attractive trait. Suppose I should make the most of it, I've only got a face for radio. wink.png I was asked to audition for a film with Ray Winstone once. Happened to meet this guy at a concert who was a casting director. He said they needed someone with a Yorkshire accent who looked like a crack addict. Sadly, I'm not joking. I declined...
