Laughter and books make life a little easier

A silly post

I am actually blogging! Yay! Even though this is a silly post. But I’ve been wanting to share this, and now I have an excuse. I’ve been so busy that I didn’t have a chance to draw much. But firstly, I did do an illustration of what I looked like this long, crazy week:



“Oh hai! I’m Nick the Headless Chicken!”

Nearly Headless Nick? What?”

“No, Headless Nick, the Chicken…”


Story of my life. Week. Whatever. Smile with tongue out


The other thing is a writing exercise (I guess…?) that I found by random tag-clicking over on Bethie’s blog. And I’ve been dying to do it myself. So here it is:


A Story I Wrote in the Tub

Thomas Bergersen and I stood staring at the transparent stalker that had taken residence in the corner of my bedroom.

“Curse your intolerable good looks,” I said angrily.

It replied with, “Shut up and kiss me, fool!”

Upon hearing this, I was so brave, that I took up my collection of Broadway programs, and stroked the intruder’s face with the object(s) clasped in my hand. Pink and white rose petals issued forth from its fingers as a result of my action.

Wounded, but not mortally, it opened it’s mouth and said, “I know you did not mean to harm me, so I forgive you. Here is the Dark Gift as a token of my true feelings for you. It is a symbol of the deepest kinds of regret.”

“Thank you,” I said. “I will treasure it until I find something better.”

And then the world exploded.

The Creature Who Stole My Heart.


Now I’m off to catch some lost sleep! Sleep! Come here…

      Oh? I’ll ask you again next year October! 😉

      Gets worse actually. 😛 Nee, maar dis nie nou so erg nie. En die eksamen is ook nog nie so erg nie. Dis hierdie weke reg rondom die Spring Recess wat altyd die ergste is. Wat dan’t mens soos 10mil assignments om te skryf. Ek sal eerder eksamen skryf! Want dan moet ‘n mens net stuff swot, ipv stuff skryf! 😉
