[personal profile] alice789: That's the one, methinks.  Starts out a bit weak, but that drop is what gets the pussy.
[personal profile] astah: gets the pussy?
[personal profile] alice789: FOR DAYS.
[personal profile] astah: i don't get it...
[personal profile] alice789: Shut up, I'm an elegant lady.

I have sworn an oath that 2013 will be the BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE.
My New Years Resolution is: To become rich and famous. (world domination will have to wait until next year)

I was adding things to my resolution list when this inner voice said, "I have so much to do that I barely have time to sleep. I'll do it later."
And then I really thought about it. When? When is later? And why did I think that later would be any different than right now?
There will never be more than 24 hours in a day. And there will always be a full menu of obligations and diversions to fill in those hours. That will never change.

Snowy nails for the winter holiday! Woot.
I like how this could almost pass for french tips at a distance. Its subtle and simple.

I have a tradition (since Jericho was born) of buying one fancy ornament every Christmas - photos of my new ornament will come later when I actually have my tree up and decorated (because I don't).

I'll be spending the next three weeks painting and sorting out my life! Everything is CHAOS!

My new ornament.

I think the Mayans were predicting the day Twitter would explode with "nothing happened" sarcasm.

Okay, being in fashion - or any artistic industry for that matter - you come to the understanding very early on, that everyone copies everyone else. We could chalk it up to 'deriving inspiration' and 'mimicking that which we find beautiful' - but they really are all the same thing.
I never gave a rat's ass about upstart big-headed designers seeking the lawful protection of patents and copyrights on their designs. There's no such thing. No one person or entity has the right to make claim to a design or piece of art and call it their own specifically.

As a race, we come to a sort of artistic creative resonance. We all start designing similar things, are pulled towards similar colours and silhouettes, without any verbal or physical communication. The psychology of it is amazing, being in the same vein as memetics and semiotics.

All that said, someone has blatantly ripped off my designs. Someone I know. I'd never make such an accusation, unless I was 100% sure. Don't get me wrong, I'm not upset, or angry at them. The thought had never crossed my mind to protect or guard my designs. And I have no intention of doing so, ever. We all steal from each other, its matter of fact. Its how we build an empire. We all look at others for inspiration, and grow.
For now, I'm slightly happy that this person saw something in my ideas worthy of copying. Never in my life have I been so energized, and eager to succeed. I'm flooded with a sudden burning desire to surpass my competition. Its been a long time since I felt the need, and I'm utterly grateful for it.

I have always believed in spirits, ever since I had any concept of life, or the absence thereof.
Of all the photographs I took while in Europe, this is one of my favourites.

This was a graveyard we walked by. Note the creepy ghostly mist. :D

I told [personal profile] astah that we should have a YouTube channel, in which we post videos of us visiting haunted places, getting really scared in the dark, and running around screaming like bitches. That would be awesome.
