It's Friday and I'm...baking.

It's the first Friday of the new school year!

How cool is that? I love being able to say "YAY it's Friday!" and do my happy Friday dance.

The not really cool thing is that I'm a little bit sick, but I don't mind too much because I can stay home, paint, or watch a film and, maybe, cook!

...For now, I'll just answer Magda's questions, because she tagged me last week, and I had kinda forgot to do it, amidst school starting and trying to get some sleep.

1) How would you spend your day if it was your last one on Earth?

Saying everyone that I love them, laughing randomly, and trying to see and do as many things possible. Oh, and eating awesome food.

2) In which movie would you like to star?

Seriously? I'm all for artistic, less famous movies, but where I'd like to play? Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or Inception.

3) If you were an object in your room, what would that be?

My bookcase, I think. I have a great love for books. :)

4) Describe a random dream you've seen in your sleep.

Two days (nights?) ago, I dreamt I could perform magic. So could my mom, and I think my sister, too. Yeah, ubiquitous, I know, but it was freakin' awesome, and extremely realistic!

5) Do you believe in past lives?

Nah, not really. I mean, it sounds very interesting, but you've got one very sceptic person right here (me!).

6) Do you read a book these days? Which one?

Just finished the amazing graphic novel "Blankets" by Craig Thomson (who is amazing, too). I'm not sure what I'm going to read next, but I'm open to suggestions!

7) Do you cook? Your specialty?

Hell yeah I do! I worked in a kitchen this summer, for those of you who don't already know! My specialty? Hard to say, but everyone says I have a particular skill in baking cakes. Oh, and spring rolls. (you won't get that last part if you're not Valassia)

8) Which is your worst house chore? (And no, I don't take "All" as an answer!)

I know most people say it's washing the dishes, but for me it is the cleaning the kitchen table after lunch.

Also, since I was talking about cooking, I need all of you nice people out there to do me a favour. Tomorrow we'll go visit my uncles and my cousin who's about to give birth and her husband whose birthday is today, and I really want to make a dessert for them. Problem is, I don't know what to make! So, if you have a nice dessert in mind and can share the recipe, BRING IT ON!

So I bid you farewell for now, as my delicious cookies are in the oven (yeah, at some point of the post I left to go make cookies. I'm that devoted to making this post). I can't wait to read your suggestions for the dessert, and I generally can't wait to hear from all of you. I'm going to make a more detailed post about school starting and stuff like that some other time. I gotta go look at cookbooks now.

Of tags, art, and an announcement


I'm in a completely random mood - must be the hours I spent cleaning my room up.


I was tagged by the lovely Annie ♥ to answer the following eight questions.

1. If you were a cupcake, what would you be?

Hmm, actually I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know this much about cupcakes and decorations and flavours. Well, I think I'd make a good banana cupcake with chocolate frosting.

2. Which is your quotation?

Quotation, huh? I think I have two:
Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.
~Oscar Wilde
Never lend books, for no one ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are books that other folks have left me.
~ Anatole France

...If they can be considered my quotations.

3. Which is your favourite item of clothing?

My violet Doc Martens, and a very nice dress from a store called Heel, which is too complicated to describe.

4. Your favourite word?

I'm sure that "nieve" and "lluvia" (=snow and rain) are my favourite spanish words... But other than that, I can't think of my favourite word right now. :

5. Which is your favourite song right now?

"She's got you high" by Mumm-Ra and "I'm on my way" by the Proclaimers.

6. If you could slap one celebrity on the face, who would you choose?

Sarah Palin. She annoys the hell out of me. And she's the only thing close to a celebrity I could think off.

7. Describe an amazing evening for you.

It MUST include: friends, good food, a place with a nice view, probably alcohol, laughter, and then I can go home happy and draw for hours listening to my music. Perfect. :)

8. What would your favourite breakfast include?

English breakfast! Eggs and bacon and bread, colourful jam, cake, fruit yogurt, milk...and croissants. <3>

So now I tag:

Valasia from Colours, photos and chocolate
Andreas from My Beautiful Disaster
Natalie from Nakedtile
Kat from My Life is a Mess

My questions are the following:

1. Which movie/book/comic character can you relate the most with?
2. Which is the physical characteristic that you always pay attention to when you see people? (e.g. I ALWAYS remember what people's hands look like)
3. Three things that annoy you to no end?
4. Who is your favourite band/singer currently?
5. Which is the first thing you do when you get in the internet?
6. Which is the latest film you've watched?
7. Something you really are looking forward to?
8. A thing you really have to do that you've been neglecting?

(you are allowed to tag me back, but please make these questions interesting. <3)


Also! Remember that comic I told you I'd send to a contest? THE RESULTS ARE OUT TOMORROW. I'm anxious. Info here.

So if your parents happen to buy the newspaper... I don't know if I have won anything, but if you see a story with a librarian made by some Georgia girl, THAT'S ME.


---EDIT: Just got the newspaper - I didn't win anything. I passed, however, the preliminaries. Well. I really, really hoped I would do well, but it's okay. I'm glad I at least passed the first round. Good thing is - you get to read the comic here. C:


To close this the best way, I have some art to show you! Recently I was asked to post some more of my art (which I found very flattering), so I decided I should show you some of the stuff I did for art class this year (because I only got them yesterday), their colours kindly butchered by my camera.

-Joseph Gordon-Levitt is amazing and the funny thing is that I never get celebrity crushes - no kidding!
-I'm drawing. A lot.
-I have a ton of things to post but I'm not in a serious mood right now.
-I'll try posting A LOT this month. :)

-Until later,
