Yeah, the tag is late, but that’s because I lost it… but I found it again, so here is the late tag! And since its past Christmas, I don’t know if I should tag anyone or not… So I’ll give ye a choice. I tag all my followers (If they haven’t already done it) and they do it only if they want.

I was going to do the abominable tag, but I had to get off before I finished the post! So, instead of saving it on here, I copied it and put it on Microsoft Word, which didn't save it! So I won't be doing the tag.

*Bwahaha* I got to paint a whole lot! I got a bunch of canvas for Christmas, which means, four big, wooden frame canvas, and a pack of three small cardboard canvas! I have painted like three pictures in the last two days--one was a human figure (I know! ASTOUNDING!! I never do people. Not that the person I did was astounding--just that me drawing--PAINTING one is astounding) cloaked in a black/gray cloak, so her (yes, her, I have trouble drawing men even more than women) face is unseen. I am worst at faces. Okay, so the end of the cloak is blowing that way: -->, so part of it is blowing over her legs, which are wearing brown breeches. She is wearing a gray tunic, and holding a sword (accidentally slightly curved) and wearing boots, which you can hardly see against the background, which is dark green. So dark a green that it looks like black. Yeah, if you looked at it, it would seem black.

Painting number two! A horse. Yes, a horse. But a strange horse with a really light gray background. (Its still not TOTALLY finished, but it works) Its rough, because it needs more work. But it is a horse I did all white, but the pencil lines smeared in, making it slightly gray. So I took some black and put it all along the sides of the lines on that side --> (I love arrows) and I used white along the lines of that side <--. The horse's mane is gray, and its head drooped near the ground. (tis a sad picture) But one thing I haven't mentioned--the horse is emaciated. Terribly emaciated. Its hips stick out, and its ribs are showing. Its back is sunken (I forget what you call it when its like that) . I know, I know, I'm so mean... but you know, life is like that sometimes. We got to face it. Whoops! I'm supposed to be telling you what the picture looks like, not giving ya'll a message. LOL.

Next painting! It was a huge canvas, I forget the lengths, but it was big. Okay, so I put it on my easel and draw a horse--a galloping horse, galloping across a field of flowers, in fact--and a pond with reeds surrounding it. And a blue sky, that for some reason makes it look like dusk. The horse is a dark brown with a black mane and tail (a bay). On the canvas, I started out with bright green just because I needed the color for underneath, and because it was going to be mostly covered up. Okay, so I used blotches for the flowers *sigh* Not very good, I know, but it looks awesome. Okay, back to the painting. There were red, yellow, blue, and white flowers, the white I did last. It was REALLY bright, but it was not to be. Okay, so I dipped my brush in the water, and used the water to smear it all together, creating a mystifying awesomeness. Well, it wasn't THAT pretty... but it was pretty good. :P Atleast--thats what people TELL me, but they're my family. O_o

OH YES!! And I painted right before Christmas. I did two--one was like geometric--a black background with like four bars that--well, its hard to explain. Okay, so draw a... diamond shaped bar. Then draw a line that goes UNDER it. And so on, until you've done like four bars, and it looks like its twisted together (well, not really) and looks good. I gave that to my mom for Christmas.

And the one I gave Manny--Augh, I didn't like the color, but she'd been asking me to draw one for a LONG time. I say, "What color should I make this dragon?" Her answer was always, "Purple." You see, I wouldn't do it because I just can't stand purple (no offense)! So, for Christmas, I drew a lying down purple dragon on cardboard canvas--and painted it. For the background, I used sunset colors. Okay, so from the left top corner, I did red, then slowly did orange, then yellow. Twas pretty, I have to admit, but I still didn't like the purple color. :P

Okay, so I think thats all--except, of course, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
Farewell and Stay Well,

P.S. Hopefully I will be able to download the pictures of my paintings soon! Sorry about the delay!!

Opposite Day

Ever heard of Opposite Day? Well, it’s the day that things are reversed and mixed up unimaginably cleverly. Say, “You’re the best” to someone, and you’re really saying, “I’m the worst” to yourself. *scoffs* The nerve of telling yourself that you’re terrible! *sees people watching* *turns red* Oh, yes, back to the subject. On Opposite Day, men, women, and children all get mixed up and mind boggled. Like you an me. Like him and her. Like he and she… Sorry. I could name all kinds of things. What if it’s Opposite Day? Try figuring out the opposite of all these words I’ve babbled. Hard, eh?

Imagine someone told you it was Opposite Day. So then you go up to a random person (if they’re not random you can’t say you went up to a random person. I suggest you give them a test to determine whether or not they’re really random) and say, “I hate you.” What would that mean to them? They probably thought it was a regular day and be offended. (So always talk to someone who is random. Remember the test) If it really was Opposite Day—then you would be saying, “You love me.” But if that person said it was Opposite Day, and then if it really was, he would be saying that it was a regular day, and thus you really said that you hated someone. Augh, I know.

Now, so you can learn up on your vocabulary, I’ll give you all the opposites I can think of at the moment. Then, if it’s ever Opposite Day, you’ll know what you’re saying. ;)
1. Soft—hard
2. Hot—cold
3. Love—hate
4. Gulp—sip
5. Die—live
6. Excellent—terrible
7. Black—white
8. Dark—light
9. Ceiling—floor
10. High—low
11. Sharp—dull
12. Weapon—toy (not totally sure about this one… ;) )
13. Earth—sky
14. Swim—drown
15. Fly—fall
16. Rise—fall
17. Kill—murdered :O
18. Air—water
19. Head—toes
20. Mute—sound
21. Loud—quiet
22. Full—empty
23. Boring—exciting
24. Random—serious
25. Truth—lie
26. Good—evil
27. Child—adult
28. Mature—immature
29. Careful—careless
30. Beautiful—ugly

Ok, so those are just the thirty off the top of my head. Hope that helps. Now, tell me, have you ever experienced Opposite Day? If not, call now and get a free discount! Only $599! 599! Call: 123-456-7890. I repeat—call now and get a free discount of fifty dollars! Only $599! Call now! Tell your friends to get their very own Opposite Day today!

Sorry. I couldn’t resist. *sigh* Well, this wasn’t a real randomness post, and not half as good as one of Jake’s, either. So, it’s alright if you got a wee… uh… I don’t know! G’bye.
Farewell and Stay Well,

P.S. Sorry about the delay with the pictures of my paintings, but I still need to download them to this computer... Sorry, ya'll. Till next time!

Yes, Yes I Know

Yes, yes I know, second post of the day. But I have a good excuse. You see, I never got to review SitS (Sword in the Stars). I think I should, since it was an epic book... Ok, so here's what I thought of it.

Sword in the Stars was a marvelous and intriguing book. Alistair, a man with a dark past, has a future full of adventure waiting for him.
I really liked the book, all in all, but the romance isn't the best. But WTB did a really good job on this! I totally loved the story, and especially Alistair. The characters were developed well, and the writing quality was good. Of course, there were a few typo mistakes and such, but that's all. I highly recommend this to you-- if you're interested and haven't read it already. I know many of my followers already have.

Ok, so, That is what I think of SitS! Enjoy.

Argh!! Wretched computer... *mumbles*

Ok, ya'll, Elves, men, women, ladies, gentlemen, and more, I'm back. Back from the pits of school--back from a harrowing week. Back from danger, peril, and-- adventure. Not really. All I did was paint-- and a few other things.
I still have thirty thousand words in my whichimicallit because of one thing-- our wretched computer. Yes, wretched. Aye. My terrifyingly slow and fiddleydoppily computer won't bring up Microsoft Word-- not any of the minimized pages, not any new ones. And, just before it stopped working, I sent my story to myself, but when I opened it after our amazingly abhorred and unjustified Microsoft Word quit working-- it only had less than half of my story. Now, I am horrifyingly fearful that our strangely deadly and slippery Microsoft Word has deleted half my story-- more, in fact-- and I'm hoping it didn't.
Ah, now for the good news! I did my painting, and it turned out better than I thought it would. I did a whitish horse head (with a grayish mane) with a blue background. Thanks to one of the blogs I follow, I knew a few things to make it better. :-) The horse looks slightly old--and I seem to think of it as a she. Her eye on the side of her face that you can see is half covered with her forelock, and her mane (which is not very defined) is mingled with the forelock, which has been slightly brushed to the side.
More good news. My mom found the unfinished painting I strangely call 'The Hydra Painting'! Now, I can finish it. It got lost when we 'cleaned' the basement, as I have explained already. It is barely started, with only a few watery green colors on it. It is a hydra with six heads--one I found in a book. Soon, hopefully, it will be finished.
I am reading a befuddlingly good book-- one most of you have probably read. CURSE OF THE SPIDER KI--Er, no. Not that one. But I am reading Venom and Song! This is probably the second or third time I've read it. Tis epic-- agreed? EPIC! Tis so full of epicness, that it has to be epic. *Bwahahahah* Yess... Epic. I haven't gotten very far, yet, unfortunately, because I have not much time to read-- for certain reasons I will explain... soon.
One, last night, when I started it, we went to a white elephant gift exchange. You know what I got? Diaper-- *coughs* Adjustable underwear. But, to make up for the adjustable underwear, (lol, diapers) the person who had did that gift had put some earrings in. But, since I don't usually wear earrings, I gave them away randomly (like Elves should, the random part, I mean) My sister gave away one of my mom's old prom dresses--the one with itchy sleeves, the one nobody liked. A man got it, and we were laughing so hard--even before he opened it. When he did, he held it up and said, "A perfect fit." It eventually got 'stolen', which means somebody took it and he had to open a new gift. Twas hilariously funny. One item could only be stolen three times, and one person can only be stolen from three times. So, it was pretty fair. Lady Amber was there-- she was last, and so she got to pick out of most everything. She took a coffee mug from Jake that said, "Have a merry Christmas. And I mean it!" There was a grumpy and stern looking old lady on it with poofy hair and pointy glasses and shoes. By the time we were finished, it was late-- and I had a hoppingly maddening headache. It affected my ears, my eyes-- everything. I barely fell asleep. Woke up once in the middle of the night, and didn't sleep for a few more hours. Ack. But, this morning, I was fine.
Two, Church! Which isn't a bad thing. I myself actually like church. Church is awesome. Literally awe-some. :-) Its just that I didn't read that morning. :-)
*claps* I should go do something other than stare at this screen-- I think I'll go read or paint, or anything like that.
Wait! More news. We finally got snow! But it is dry snow. And not that deep. It blows across the road, making it look like a desert. But its the exact opposite. Tis freezing cold! Seriously, it was down to like six degrees last night... and thats cold. Luckily, I had layers of blankets.  Now I must go and do something else-- Farewell, all ye Elves (or other things... people)
Farewell and Stay Well (especially with the cold!),

Hail, all! I am BACK! Where was I? I don't know... Anyways, I'm here to blog! I bet thats pretty obvious. :-) I've been writing lately... like actually writing. I was writing last night. On my... story. I'm nearly to thirty thousand words! I just need like two thousand five hundred more words!! One more page and I'll have seventy pages on Microsoft word!! But don't party yet, its going to get a lot longer. I have a feeling... though I'm not a writer. Believe me, yeah, woo hoo, I got a big word count, yeah, yeah, and yeah, but the quality? Not so sure about that one. I wrote four thousand words last night, and eight pages. Seven of those pages was a chapter-- though I probably shouldn't post it. It may be boring. So, now I have sixty nine pages, twenty seven five hundred words, and A BUNCH OF HAPPINESS!!! But the problem with that is that then Jake was saying I was a writer, and I was disagreeing, and he was insisting and going on and on about it... *sigh*
Oh yes, and I painted last night. I haven't gotten a chance to paint for a long time, but we can blame it on the basement. The painting I was working on got lost when we 'cleaned' up the basement to find things for the garage sale-- So  I had to start a new one. But the last one was going to be one of my best... the new one--not so much. The other one was a hydra with six heads (Nice to hang in my room, right?) and was a greenish color, with a watery background. But this one, didn't turn out as well. It was of a sea dragon (the head wouldn't cooperate), with his head and chest out of the water, though you can only see part of his front fins. The sea looks stormy and gray, and the sky, also. (I put white in the sky and swirled it around--bad mistake. Now it looks as if I didn't paint the whole canvas, and there's white showing through) and the sea is swirling and churning, while the sea dragon,(one I made up) is breathing what looks like a cloud of black smoke--its really a poisonous gas that it uses to hunt. He was probably using it on some fish you can't see. So, all in all, it wasn't a good painting and hardly took me any time at all. :-/ I would've done a horse, but I couldn't seem to think of a scene with a horse... Any ideas?
