fiercebunny: (p&p - bored)
I woke up early this morning by the nasal whine of a mosquito buzzing somewhere right by my head. Much flailing about ensued. Not a good start to the morning and the blasted thing interrupted a very intersting dream. Also, I itch.

Some random quotes I found recently that I liked:

"If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you." -- Oscar Wilde

"You can go a long way with a smile. You can go a lot farther with a smile and a gun." -- Al Capone

"There is not any memory with less satisfaction than the memory of some temptation we resisted." - James Branch Cabell

"We are here on Earth to do good to others. What the others are here for, I don't know". -- W. H. Auden

Other news:
I mailed off my application to enter the cross stitch contest for the state fair in September. Originally, I intended to submit "The Kiss" that I'm currently working on (work in progress pics here, here, and here), but I'm not sure I can get it done in time. I've got a couple inches of blank space left, various isolated popcorn stitches, and a hella amount of beading that I haven't even started on. Plus, I have to get it framed, but my mom, oh so nicely agreed to do that for my birthday. I'm a little disappointed that it probably won't be done in time for the fair(the reason I started it was because I thought a Mirabilia pattern would have the best chance), but I can always submit it next year. I'll just be happy when the sucker's done with. I'll just submit a different piece this time around.

I was at the cross stitch store a couple of weeks ago and they had a finished piece displayed that someone else is submitting. It's a Mirabilia design (of course!) with lots of beading and in a ginormous silver frame. The picture in the link doesn't do it justice at all; it's gorgeous in real life. The shop owner told me it took the owner just 14 days to do. Gah!

And lastly, a picture of Gish, photoshopped into b&w.
