Christmas Art, Hasidic Music And Kinky Work-Outs

Ominous1

663 views

I spent some of the day painting, and nearly completed my littlest sister's Christmas present. It's kind of a Van Gogh, Kandinsky and Picasso mish-mash (read postmodern pastiche) of somewhere in Venice at night. I may have to change the bottom right hand corner as it's looking a little brown and murky. It's the first time I've properly used oils, I'm usually too impatient, but I kind of cheated and used acrylics for the background.

This year, my Christmas presents will decidedly all be artworks. Because I have car registration, and moving house at the same time. One of my friends actually suggested it, so I've been running with it. Although coming up with ideas for five different artworks may be hard...

On a related note, I read through Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw the other day. Brilliant book, I loved its poke at class hierarchies and social conditioning. Apparently it's the book that My Fair Lady is based upon. I also borrowed a whole lot of art books (for inspiration) and a new Stephen King novel today. So I'm excited to do some reading this coming week.

Have you not had your hit of Hasidic Reggae today? I think you should indulge. I'm obsessed:

Bad news. My skin has broken out a bit. It seems I have to constantly keep up the Selsun for this seb derm on my face. It's really stubborn. And a few pimples are raising up on my temples. I must stay vigilant.

Quirky news. I did a workout with my roommate J-Dawg the other day. His girlfriend came to watch, as it was just in our back shed. So we were working out, building up a sweat and the entire time she's staring at J-Dawg with this flirty smirk on her face. Then, once he's grunted and sweated out a particularly difficult set, they go and hug each other. Just to prove that she can handle getting sweaty. They'd actually kiss between sets. That is the last time I'm working out with them. I feel uncomfortable just talking about it. Urgh. He also bragged to me about doing squats, lifting her, in his bedroom. Some kinky shit there.

Good news! I've picked up some more shifts for the next few weeks. So I'll be out and about and paid. I also applied for another job in the same field. I'm not sure that they had any current work available, but my friends have worked with this organisation in the past and they seem to have a fair amount of casual work available. I'm hoping I'll get something by January.

Oh yeah, and it's my Nan's 85th birthday today. I called her a little earlier. She's so funny. She told me that I shouldn't call her because she only has bad news: my sister may be coming to stay next week. I told her not to expect a call for another year. She laughed and said gladly.

So I was happily reading your blog entry, well impressed with the artwork (enough that I might even commission you cause I need to get something on one of my walls), felt content that you're reading because books and music are what life is for, quite enjoyed listening to the song, happy that you got some work before xmas, felt your pain about the mild breakout, but then you hit me with the creepy workout session.

Perhaps when they were kissing you should have gone up to them and gave them both a hug, just telling them that you're adding your sweat to the occassion....

It has left a bad taste in my mouth...I think you need to rethink your blog ending and re-do it. Just for me. And the others. In fact mainly for the others. But for me too.

Lol, that was a good point. I want people to leave the blog entry not feeling nauseous. Ha ha. I played around with it.

I'll gladly take a commission on post-xmas. We'll have to discuss it then... :D

I should have done that. I'm sure she would have somehow been into it. My Word, it is disturbing.

I know, my life is perfect at the moment. Music, art, and books and I'm in heaven. I also just ate lamb cutlets fried in butter and garlic (pay-day!), so good. But I'm not going to see Gotye, unlike somebody that I really know. However, I am going as a third wheel to see a German version of The Chainsaw Massacre, while it's not quite Gotye, it that should be interesting!

Ha ha, it wasn't censored, I just swapped around the paragraphs. It used to end on Quirky news.

@Faithgirl: Thanks, I'm not sure that I'll actually get it. But my work said there will be more work available in January anyway...You decoupaged and made frames for everyone. Now that's impressive. I don't even know how to do that!! ha ha, I should probably frame the one for my Nan (I'm not sure if she'll be a fan of the naked canvas), but frames can cost more than everything else combined. Was it difficult to make frames?
