Sigh. I have been so busy lately, not much time for anything. My writing has been feeble and seldom, my drawings rushed and frivolous. But I must take into account that with spring break, i am not really myself. I have spent hour upon hour in my room, watching movie after movie, particularly, my new favourite *obsession* The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I have seen it a total of 5.5 times in one week, i must think that to be a record. The Rocky Horror Picture show is a low budget cult movie from the 70′s ish. It simply is indescribable– transvestite scientists, sexy man made men, aliens and rock stars. The weird variety of characters in the musical mani is what i find make it most appealing. I absolutely adore Tim Curry as Frank-n-Furter, a mad scientist; the vocals are brilliant, the lyrics more fabulous then anything.
Sexual Strange, And Flamboyantly Fantabulous, if you havent it already, you really must!
The iconic lips, with frank-n-furter in toll, one of my favourite lines quoted at the bottom.
What woke me was unknown and hallow.
Like a hushed wind not so hushed
On a calm night
Not so calm.
My sleep was hazy,
a blurry dreamt up euphoria,
like glazed over eyes staring into nothingness.
Which mine did that night
glazed like frosted over lakes,
never seeing peace over a crowded winter.
And when my eyes did close,
REM was etched into my lids
weird happinesses dancing in my picture frames.
Cut short by the shadow of a figure
shadowed on the outline of my penciled inner eye lid.
Eyes wide open now, Im sure I would sat.
My ass etched into my mattress.
A foreign print till morning.
So I would have seen the icy frost that seeped
under my covers
and felt it cake against my skin.
Filling my pores with granite.
I think I remember his “eyes” against mine.
Orbs that stared but never saw.
Maybe I felt his lips on mine, blue and cracked,
to match my own.
Though my own do not contain such glinting incisors
perhaps I thought.
Did I make note of those incisors,
that glinted in imaginary moonlight?
Make note of sharp feel my flesh tasted a clamped down?
That sleepy feeling that creeps upon me now, as did then?
Or did I wash away those memories?
Wash aways the blood, wash away the tears, wash away the tainted taste
but I shall never wash away the scar.
Sigh…. such a long time since i graced the internet with my feeble writing abilities. A lot has happened, i must say. First of all, i have dyed my hair bright pink! this is not the first time i have done such a dramatic dye job, recently i dyed it bright purple… I love dying my hair, i dont know why, maybe because having dyed hair makes any hair do look good
And today, i am most pleased to tell you, I AM GOING TO A MARILYN MANSON CONCERT. its is taking all my strength not to spazz out and use caps lock far more then necessary. I just adore Marilyn Manson, i have adored him ever since i was seven, when my mum first showed me his “Beautiful People” video. I was hooked. Ever since, i have *embarrassingly* fangirled over the 44 year old rock star. I just love him. I just…. asdfghjkl; I suppose i am so strange for loving Marilyn Manson of all people, but I have never cared what others think. And today my dream comes true. I get to be in his presence…. though from a balcony away. But oh well, i still couldn’t be more ecstatic!
I have three dreams. One, to meet Marilyn Manson. Two, to meet Alexander Rybak, and Three, to meet MIKA. Though the chances of any of these happening is slim… especially for Alexander Rybak, a Norwegian singer, but i can still hope. And with my going to the Marilyn Manson concert, the others just feel that much more obtainable.
Did I mention Valentines day is coming up?
And… I cant forget… Valentines day!!! woohoo!! also consider singles awarness day, i am pleased to say, i am not spending it alone! ahaha…. what are you doing to Valentines Day? how about you bake some heart shaped brownies? Buy some candy hearts, give them out? Have fun with it!
Ahhh, so its christmas time again! The time for giving, getting, caring, and sharing. This christmas eve, I plan to eat sleep and draw, for those are the thing that matter to me at the moment. The snow has all melted, and the grounds are wet and rainy. The chances of it being a white christmas are slim as the chances of the sun coming out. It is… generally dreary… But there is christmas cheer never the less… When you wake up on christmas morning, here are somethings to remember: Hug your family, 10 times a day. Give more than you receive, and bake a cookie and lick the bowl. That was a terribly sappy post wasnt it? yes well, anyways, have a wonderful Christmas everyone! <3
I have an adorable lil dog named Madame Stella Luna de Catarina, and while that may seem like a ridiculously long name, we generally only call here Luna. She is the greatest photo subject, and absolutely awesome! <3
Hello my lovelies! A month or two has past since I last informed you of my daily encounters… which means a season has come and gone, and now we enter the age of winter. Winter is definitely a bitter sweet season for me, especially when it comes to snow… a love/hate relationship you might say … I love the hot chocolate, hugs and cozyness, but I despise cold soaking shoes, and having to commute through icy weather. Every morning i am condemned to riding the bus, and when the road are icy, and snow ‘a blowin’, its harder then it sounds… previously, the bus didnt come at all! I had to hitch hike…. and just today it was twenty minutes late! i ended up walking 10 blocks just to end up waiting another 10 minutes for another bus, the whole time my feet were soaking… due to..hmm.. a previous battle should i say? Anyways, snow is beautiful from a far, but shitty when you have to deal with it close up :/
Also, recently I have graduated from my frivolous drawing, and have started working with water colours! At first it was terribly frustrating, and I almost gave up, but i powered through, and hope to gain some more skill in this media. I’ll posted pictures of some of my drawings soon enough! Oh, and by the way, I am entering a poetry competition, and may post a poem or two and would love to have some feedback! All to look forward to!
PS shout out to Eric for convinsing me to start updating this again, other wise it wuda just layed dusty in a foreign corner of the internet forever…
IM BAAAAACK!! and feeling utterly fabulous!! Becauuuuse…. I GOT A YUMMY RECIPE TO SHAAARE!!! Yup! Today its Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes!! SOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Here Ya go!
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Scrub potatoes.
You need 2 wooden spoons with handles of the same width. Place a spoon on each side of the potato and start slicing the potato into thin slices. The spoons will stop the knife from cutting all the way through the potato.
Slice the butter into thin pieces. Alternate the butter and the parmesan, stuffing them in between the slices of the potato. Season the potato with garlic powder and kosher salt. Drizzle the potato with olive oil.
Bake at 400ºF for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle heavy cream over the potatoes. Top with cheddar cheese.
Place back in the oven for 10-12 more minutes. Remove and serve!
- 2 whole Golden Potatoes
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 piece (about 2 Inches Long) Parmigiano-Reggiano, Sliced Thinly
- ⅛ teaspoons Garlic Powder
- ¼ teaspoons Kosher Salt
- 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
- ¼ cups Heavy Cream
- ¼ cups Cheddar Cheese Blend
Ok…so maybe it I haven’t exactly been updating every day, but hey, once in a while is good enough right? But today I have something lovely to share: Cupcakes!! ^_^ But not just any cupcakes, cookie dough cupcakes!! I mean, how fab does that sound? My two fav things together.. genius…
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
- 1 1/3 cups water
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 3 eggs
- Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and sea salt; set aside. Beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and the vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Form the dough into tablespoon-sized balls; place onto a baking sheet, and freeze until solid, about 2 hours.
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
- Beat 3 eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer to break up. Add the cake mix, water, and canola oil; continue beating for 2 minutes on medium speed. Spoon into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each 2/3 full. Place a frozen cookie dough ball on the top center of each cupcake.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake portion of the cupcake (not the cookie dough ball) comes clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
NOMNOMNOM sooo yummy ^_^ Enjoy!
