So I got this comment yesterday
or maybe the day before....
Its a good chuckle to read your blog, you come across fairly randomly at times! I do love your art though, it's always so fresh looking.
Now my immediate reaction was.... I'm not random
not even sometimes
I had a bit of a laugh and moved on
this lady has a great blog which I enjoy
and don't get me wrong
I wasn't offended or anything....
just kind of puzzled
especially as I thought I had played the post pretty straight
no talk of snarts or anything...
then while finishing off my painting for the 2012 Colour Challenge
and Paint Party Friday this morning
I started to stop and think about it a bit more
and started to assess some of the things that had popped into my head
in the last day
So I have thought about the guy who hosts that show Dirty Jobs
is oddly attractive...
got to be the deep voice and laconic kind of charm....
even at 5.30 am
which is relevant because it is usually on the TV
when I stumble down the stairs on school days
stumble while muttering incoherently might be a more accurate description
but I start most school days with sound of his voice
describing some thing completely disgusting
very weird but he is rather compelling....
I had wondered what people who design buttons
have as topics at conferences
or do they have conferences????
and do they hate zipper people?????
Not quite sure where that one came from
but kept my mind busy while putting on the washing
mind you came to no conclusions
button designers remain a mystery
Why don't people call their kids Gustav anymore
now I can understand not calling a girl Gustav
but kind of a cool name for a boy...
where that one came from is easy as Madame Bovary
is sitting on my desk as part of my painting...
It is a kinda cool name though isn't it....
Another thought was
Does Johnson's baby powder smell different in different countries
because Cadbury's chocolate from the UK tastes different
from how it tastes here
or from South Africa
and yes I have tried them all...
so if they are the same product but different
does that mean baby powder smells different
so do babies smell different?
Now I used to live in Florida but for the life of me
I couldn't remember if baby powder smells different...
This one kept me thinking all through painting the teapot
So my conclusion from that scary little review of my brain is that
I am indeed fairly random at times
I did think I kept it mostly in my head,
but perhaps it leaks out
and seeing as my word for the year is
I am going with it
and am now proudly sharing my randomness
Now you may have guessed that the colour for the colour challenge was
Orange, and no I didn't read the rules completely
and see you aren't supposed to use other colours outside of that spectrum
but I am going to pretend the paper had bits of blue and green
embedded in it
just where I wanted it...
I am such a rule breaker aren't I....
Luckily I haven't broken any rules
set by Kristin and Eva over at Paint Party Friday
at least I don't think I have
and I think I am pretty sure I am cool for
off to make a cup of tea
and consider why when we have so many products
from other countries
one of them isn't Bounce Drier sheets
love the smell of those things...
