Randoms on Saturday, Supermoons, Where I Have been, and Sobbing in the Movies!

OK so I typed this whole thing and lost it.  Basically what I said was:


I went to Primi yesterday and got served my soda water and lime (my latest addiction) in a beautiful Bacardi glass which I had to have.  The waiter looked at me oddly when I asked him to ask the manager if I could buy it (wonder if he wondered whether I might be short of glasses at home)..  manager looked at me even more oddly but he said he’d give me the glass (I think he might have wanted to be rid of me) so I bore it away happily.  Here it is:

Pictures do not do it justice…. LOL!  #lovemyglass.  I think I’m going to paint it with glass paint…..  Anyway…

Last night there was a super moon. I smsed Jess to tell her to look outside at it and apprised her of its status. She asked me how I know about super moons, etc, and cos it’s long been a standing joke between us, I wrote back to say “I know everything!”.  She lolled.  We lolled.  Nice to have small things making you lol!  Especially between parent and child, mother and daughter.

In recent weeks I’ve been on a Pastel training course, I went to see Titanic in 3d with my sister and a friend and we all howled like monkeys.  I’ve half heartedly looked at the dating site but I haven’t paid to join so no one’s a fan. Oh I did get one request from a bloke who looked like he had recently escaped from the backwaters of the Virginia mountains telling me he needed me to be the mother of his children, and he wanted lots of them…  I never told him I’d recently had my womb hauled out, I thought it safer to edge carefully away.

Oh ja and if you wonder why my blogs have been so scarce it’s cos I have been unfaithful and fallen in love with another site, Pinterest.  You can follow my pins here : and if you have a Pinterest account please drop me a line and I will follow you, assuming I find your stuff interesting but if it’s just fashion and cliche’d nonsense please leave me out.    I love Pinterest!  So addictive!

What makes you cry in Titanic? If, indeed, you do cry?

In other news still,I’m finding various very trivial things very amusing, not sure if have gone mad, will get back to you on that but for instance there is this one bloke we know who keeps saying “and what have you” as an end to his sentences and I find myself battling to keep a straight face when we get to “what have you” number 65…..

Diet going OK, we’ve been a bit naughty but my weight is keeping level, not losing anymore so need to step it up.  I’ve started doing my art again; I bought a black book, with black pages but was disappointed to note that it doesn’t show pastels or gel pens up very well, I’ll have to paint in it I think.  Anyway here is one of my offerings (in line with my past life as a Hippie)

Oh ja!  and my friend Lyndatjie (Froggie) has made me DVDs of the last 8 seasons of QI!  I cannot WAIT to collect them and I’ll be able to perve in unrestrained luxury over Mr Alan Davies, my latest celeb crush!

Now get your arses over to Pinterest and remember you can only join if invited so if you want me to invite you drop me a line!


Randohm and Dark Art

Published 29/03/2012 by Saint

Well there is a stack to report on but since I feel I have razor blades in my throat and am coming down with something that ends in -cillus I can’t quite be bothered with a serious run-down of all that has happened.  I will say that my healing is coming along, far from alright, far from fit but getting stronger every day.

I’ve noticed a bit of an obsession with ghastly or graphic art in recent years, particularly on the part of the youth.  Some of it appeals to me though not in any serious way.  The leading subject matter of art such as this seems to be death:  vampires, zombies, the living dead, being resurrected after death, blood sacrifice and other such morbid and dark subjects.  I’m not sure where this trend came from but it certainly has been influenced in later years by the Twilight movies in particular I am sure.  I’ve still not seen one of those films and I can’t imagine I ever will, as they simply don’t seem to appeal but I hear the rest of the world is in thrall to the extent of camping out on pavements etc etc to await the release of the latest film/book and it appears an entire sub-culture seems to have been founded upon the Twilight genre.

Anyway.. here’s one such pic as referred to above. [I’m not putting any warnings about graphic content, life is full of graphic content, look away or leap off a cliff if you cannot copre with this basic fact].   This one’s from deviantart (a very interesting website if you like dark or deviant subject matter) and is called UNDER REPAIR.  In some ways this reminds me of the James Spader movie Crash, where he was erotically affected by stitches, accidents and injuries…  as they say, there is a fetish for everybody in the world really hey?  Would you ever imagine finding stitches erotically stimulating?!?! (I could hardly bring myself to look at mine let alone at anyone else’s and as for licking and kissing them… (I’ll find  a pic for you of this from the film. Brilliant film that but don’t watch it if you don’t like the dark side of sex or homosexuality, or other such kinky shite).  Anyway back to this pic:

K I could not find a pic of the great Spader licking the injury site but here is a pic of the legs that so attracted him, being marred, scarred and broken from an accident (accidents play a central role in this movie)..

What do you think of dark art, dark films, dark ideas, dark sex, dark pictures etc?
