I Live In The Red Light District...

Or so it would appear from the outside... My sister's given me a very lovely Chinese paper lamp, and yesterday i had it put up with a light and such. But the lamp is red. Bright red. As a consequence of that, the light from the lamp is also red.

Had I placed it in the kitchen, where the windows are quite big and have no curtains (still, yet), it would have looked like said district in, say, Amsterdam. Except that I didn't place it in the kitchen. - and I'd probably not prance around in my underwear in plain view from the outside. I definitely wouldn't.

At my course this week we've been making displays for a (fictional) coffee brand, and I must admit; the ones I've made, I'm quite pleased with. I've also made a design for the bag it's sold in (if it were a real coffee make, which it's not, but that's beside the point.). One of the others said that I should take those designs and go sell myself to whomever might be interested. (No, this has nothing to do with me living, or not living, in the red light district!) Maybe I will...

The Weekend That Went To Hell And Bounced Back

I've made a decision: when I move to England, and when we can afford the tuition (D'OH!), I'm going to do either a HNC or a HND. Either in art/design or in teaching. Cause I more and more realise that I would like to teach art.

Apparently, Christmas is here. Atleast judging by certain shops. One, in particular, that I went to the other day. They've got Christmas decorations ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING!!! It's too bloody early!!
Anyway, I intend to start making Christmas decorations pretty soon. The Christmas cards I've already sorted, I bought those in London. Hehe.
I love Christmas, but...there's a proper time for everything. And decorating your shop for Christmas in the middle of October IS NOT IT!

Egg Song (from this place) It is very, very cute. There, you're warned! I don't know why someone has made this, but..well, there you go.. {via freakgirl}

If any of you are writers/want to become one, then this might be something for you: National Novel Writing Month. Write a novel in a month, how about that? I'm tempted... ;-)

I'm considering whether or not to try a few things (Google's AdSense), on this site, that might earn me a few pennies. With the help of my readers/visitors... ;-) What do you think?

I Had A Dream...

I only remember fragments of it. Obviously, these were the ones that struck me in particular...

I was standing on a heigh point in a city.. And below I could see (or maybe I just knew it) that water was rushing into the city, flooding it. I could see my family down below, but I was too far away to warn them.

Next "frame": I, and some other people ran into a building and to the top floor of it. Looking out the window I could see the water flooding the streets. Then it turned into us being in the hotel where T and I were staying and the parking lot was flooded with water.

Next "frame": there was a bidge of the kind you would see in Paris, or Rome, over a river. At one end of the bridge there was a small child, a baby, really, and she turned around and the water was coming towards her and she was stuggling to get away. Of course she couldn't and the water swept her away. She was scraming against the water and her face and body turned into a grotesque version of Munch's "The Scream". Then I apparently realised that it was a film that I was watching and that it was just a doll, a special effect. But it still freaked me out. And I still can't shake the image of that scraming child completely, although this was over a week ago.

Any thoughts on the meaning of these dream fragments?

I'm So Glad I Got That Of My Chest.

I wrote the following because of this site {via translucence.org}, but it's not thoughts that suddenly occured to me. But now it's put into words.

The person(s) behind that site, "God hates gays" (how eloquent is that??), quotes the Bible at length as to why it's ok to preach hate, and hate gays in particular. ALLOW ME TO DISAGREE! As any sensible person with any sense would!

Yeah..you can interpret the Bible in any way you want; it's not like its author is gonna come running after you with a big stick and hit you on the head if you get it wrong. Although of course there are people who believe that the Bible was written by God, or atleast passed directly from God to the person holding the pen. Further, I'm sure these same people expect anyone, who does not believe in this, to be hunted down and hit with the aforementioned big stick.

Well, show me what you got! I'm sure I can handle you, nomatter the size of your stick!

I don't believe the Bible was written by God, not at all. What I do believe is that it is a "collection" of tales about being a human being. Good advice on how to act, react and behave towards other people. Like most religious/spiritual texts of ancient times, it holds great truths about the human condition. However, some of it is way past its expiration date, in a modern world and perspective.

Some people see it differently, like the people behind that site. They seem bent on living their life in accordance with a way of life that is so oldfashioned and has no respect for other people. Especially people who are in a minority; gays for example. (Or women. Although 50 % of the world's population can't be called a minority, but in reality we are exactly that.)

And how can you preach hate and look at yourself in the mirror each morning? Hate is wrong. You should know it leads to the Dark Side!

But it's like these people insist on living by these idiotic "rules", merely because they (the rules) are stupid. And these people want everyone to live like them. Because if everyone lived by these rules (their rules!), then noone would notice how stupid they are themselves. Stupid is as stupid does, yanno.

I'm not saying that people shouldn't use the Bible for spiritual/moral guidance, but just that you shouldn't leave your head at the church door. The Bible was written by humans, and like humans, some of it is good and some of it is idiotic.

If God did indeed create man (and woman!), then s/he must have wanted us to use the brain with which s/he has equipped us. Right? HUMANS ARE NOT MINDLESS SHEEP!

PS: Apparently Bush has heard God tell him that he's doing a good job as President of the US. Would you vote for someone who hears voices in his head??

People are idiots. Not just idiots. They are stupid, moronic, motherfucking assholes of a bunch of wankers! They are good for nothing bastards with no regard for anything but themselves. You stupid, bloody fucking IDIOTS!!

Come back later when I'm in a better mood.

I'm Not Ticklish Really.

I'm considering getting a new domain name.

What do you think of these possibilities?

If you have other ideas, please let me know. Ta. :-)

When I went through security at the airport, the metal detector beeped as I went through! That has never happened to me before! And so I had to stand there while one of the airport staff groped me to find the offending weapon of mass destruction that I was obviously hiding! I was quite flabbergasted at the whole thing, so I told her "please don't tickle me!". Turned out it was my belt buckle that set off the detector...

I Still Haven't Unpacked Everything. In A State Of Denial, Perhaps?

So uhh, I'm home again. It sucks. A lot.

But it was a lovely, lovely week with T. A good mix of doing absolutely nothing, and doing something. Notably, going to see We Will Rock You. A musical penned by Ben Elton and with music by Queen. It lasted for 3 hours, but I didn't feel like that long time had passed when it ended. Not by a long shot. It was fantastic. BRILLIANT! If you get a chance to see it, for your own sake, don't miss it! You can even see it in Las Vegas if you don't fancy a trip to London. ;-)

We also went to see Avril Lavigne at Wembley Arena, but that's a whole entry in itself.

Seems this has been a quite musical week: I bought the new REM cd. Finally! And I don't care what anybody else says: I bloody like it!

The England Hiatus

Oh I just had to make another entry here before going off to England. The new look is so..fresh, so tempting!

We may be going to Stonehenge, which would be awesome, I've always wanted to see that! But it depends on the weather and such, and the weather does have quite the reputation for being somewhat unreliabe in England, so...

Anyway, have a lovely week. Cheerio!

New Design. Again.

Yes. Another new design. It's inspired by the artwork to the right. Which I made. And I'm very happy with it. So happy in fact that I wanted everyone else to see it.

I hope I will stick with this design for some time. If nothing else because it's a real pain to make a new 'skin' for a blog. For me atleast. ;-)

The menu type thingy at the top doesn't work yet. So for the time being take no notice of it. No, there's no point in clicking it (I know some will have done so, already. Haha.)...

Going off to England tomorrow afternoon. Will be quite some journey to get there. First by train across Denmark to CPH Airport and then a 2 hour flight to Stansted. I have a feeling I will be rather tired by the time I finally get there. But of course it's all worth it to be able to see T again.

I Think I Left A Cliff Hanging...

So. There's less than a month to the presidential election in the US. I would like to say something about that. Not that I expect anybody to care. Or to listen even. But I shall say it anyway.

Everyone should have an opinion on this subject. After all, it also effects the rest of the world whatever schmuck occupies the Oval Office. The fact that one country has this much impact on the rest of the world, I find rather worrying. But I digress.

If you know me, you are probably aware that I'm not overly fond of Bush. He seems like a stupid, ignorant fool who has no idea what he's doing and is being told when to shit and eat. That is certainly the impression one gets from watching him on telly.

Now, my sister's boyfriend is American and he claims that this is an act. To make him seem more like a regular guy. (Bush, not my sister's boyfriend, you understand) The reason for this being that he will be perceived as much more approachable this way. People would much rather have a president that is just like them. Apparently this means having a slurred speech, forgettng where you are, starting wars for no reason in particular (not completely unlike your average drugdealer I would imagine..).

To me, and lots of Europeans, Bush doesn't seem too intelligent. In any respect. Although he has been to Harvard. Not that that has any meaning at all. If you've got money and the right connections, you can go anywhere. Even the White House.

Kerry, on the other hand, does seem to be somewhat more blessed with the ability to think for himself. Maybe even intelligent. But I suspect that this will make him stand out, be less approachable, and less like your pick-up driving, gun-swinging neighbour.

I don't understand why so many Americans will vote for Bush considering his appearing to be so stupid. It's like they would rather have a guy running the country who is just like them, which, judging by the current president, doesn't say a lot about the Americans in general. God forbid that someone who was more intelligent than themselves would lead their country!

If it were me, I'd prefer a president/prime minister who was more intelligent than me. S/he would be the leader of the country for heaven's sake!

If you're American, remember to register to vote. And please don't vote Bush.
If you can't find any other reason to vote for Kerry, the fact that he's been on an episode of Cheers should be reason enough.

Keys, Bus Pass, Mobile.

With autumn and winter a very bad habit of mine also returns. Atleast I seem to notice it more during this time of year.

Maybe because I'm now wearing a coat, which has pockets (something my summer overcloating doesn't usually have). For some reason I feel a need to put things in these pockets, instead of in my handy little purse that goes into my backpack. Although this is what I do when I don't have pockets. So, I put things in my pockets that I need easy access to. Unfortunately, the pockets don't have zippers, so everyone may also have easy access to the content.

Consequently (and I am getting convinced that this is the reason) I will pat my pockets every few minutes to make sure the things are still there. I will do this repeatedly. I will even put my hands in my pockets and touch each item while quietly muttering to myself "keys, bus pass, mobile". I often do this several times, although sometimes in a different order "bus pass, mobile, keys". Especially if I say the wrong thing while touching a given item. Then I must repeat it, to make sure all the things are in my pockets. Although I can feel all the items are there.

It's quite annoying. I'm aware that I do it, and i try not to. But I guess everyone has their share of obsessive compulsive behaviour. Even if it's only seasonal...
