1. okay, I really need to remember to post more often because I build up more and more things to say and then the list gets so long I don't want to post. Damn vicious circles!
Now just to clarify something from last post, I was excited because I'd gotten back into Bond music, that's not James Bond, that was Bond Bond :P

2. I went for my first unassisted drive the other day on my P's. I'd been having a sucky day because of theskilltester and parental dramas so I don't think I was driving the safest I ever have :P It was really weird because all of a sudden I couldn't remember any of the road rules I'd learnt over the past year because apparently I rely on the registered driver sitting next to more more than I thought. However despite my rage and confusion it was actually kind of fun. I just went down to the beach and took some terrible photos for a tafe assignment :P

3. this amazingly coloured picspam has inspired me that it in fact is possible to do a large, well coloured picspam :D

And speaking of picspams, don't forget to check out this incredibly sexy picspam made specifically for me by gigglemonster :DD ♥

4. theskilltester isn't getting loads of entries (a few, but not nearly as many as challenge #1), but that's fine with me because it's inspiring me to try exciting new things. At the moment I feel like if people aren't entering, they're the ones missing out because I honestly think I'm producing some of my best work because of it :D

There were a few accusations of me cheating this week, which left me in a somewhat sour mood. I don't want to go into details because I don't want details to be remembered by me years in the future when I'm re-reading this, but basically I had incredibly few happy thoughts for approximately 2 days this week.

5. I've been somewhat interested in design and stuff over this past week because I accidentally discovered dustbowl

a three-player chess board
pen lid cutlery
awesome cabinet thing
ball-bearing-ified table
warped drawers
metal drawers
also I've decided that when I have my own house I don't want matching plates :D

6. It's easter Sunday today! YAY! And... I'm sick :/
We had a family picnic lunch thing today, which was incredibly boring but I'm glad it was because it forced me to take some fun photos to amuse myself. There was a very large ant stealing a piece of cheese from us that I tried to take a photo of, but they were mostly blurry because ants are rediculously quick. However I did manage to make this video of it being surprisingly adorable considering it's an ant

7. I finally figured out the hairstyle I'm always subconciously trying to recreate. It's this!

1. Bond from the Sydney:2000 Olympics ads?
and yours is lovely too, I particularily like how the pictures fit together all nicely like a puzzle :)
4. I think the first challenge was so awesome it's hard to top it :D
5. I had an idea where I would either have all white crockery or all non-matching so I would never break a set, like we always do at our house.
6. why is that ant picture soo HUGE? lol.
7. Eric Bana is like, a god :D
+ I haven't even thought of watching Planet of the Dead. I have so little inclination to do so!

1. I believe so!
4. I've got so many ideas, I almost want to do 2 every three weeks XD
6. the ant was gigantic, I was scared of it before it started being unexpectedly adorable
7. he may have convinced me to watch the new star trek movie... damn him :P

1. Do you have any songs to recommend of Bond? They seem interesting based on that Wiki page:)
3. That is one amazingly colored picspam indeed.
4. Ugggh I know I'm one of the people missing out! But I really want to take care of my request icons first.
5. LOL I love the warped drawers. You should check out Superuse.org. It's design made from recycled products, with gems like this and this and this.

1. Quixote, Kismet, Scorchio, I'll Fly Away, Senorita, Explosive, Samba, Homecoming are my current personal favourites. I really recommend just going through all four of their albums because they're all really amazing. They've got a really interesting blend of strings and techno; kind of like past and future, which is pretty much me in a nutnell because I don't live in the present at all :P My main criticism of their music as a whole is that sometimes the ratio of strings:techno slips a bit too much towards techno and that can get a bit scary sometimes when you're just trying to casually listen to it.

4. Why not make your request icons using the challenge restrictions? I would have absolutely no problem with that at all.

5. I love that there are so many unique and creative things out there to buy, I just wish it weren't so expensixe XD

why can't you upload that video on youtube instead ;(
Josh: fashion ; coleblueymcphluey on April 13th, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
you mean doing the logical thing when uploading a video so people could see it on the internet? :o no way!


My favourite part about it is how the ant subtlely goes in and out of focus and I don't think you'd be able to see it on youtube :/

you should get a tumblr account. it's like a blog for anything but most people use it to post pictures. check out mine, it's in my user info. you should get one and post [male] model goodness.

2. Oh that's definitely going to happen to me. I'm always asking Mum what the speed is or do I have to indicate here.

5. Wow. They're so cool. I love the chessboard and the pen cutlery :)

6. I bought a ton of eggs only to realize I don't actually feel like chocolate right now :P Hope you're feeling better!
