Just a Minute in October

I'm playing along with Jenaveve's just a minute.

hmm this month....

Reading: I managed to get 3 books finished and I have 2 more on the go right now.Finished Sweet Nothings by sheila Norton, the Russian Concubine by Kate Furnivall, open house by jill mansell. 2 typical chick lit books, but the Russian Concubine was a really good book until the end, almost felt like the author couldn't figure out how to finish the book.

Watching: Actually there are 3 movies that have been on the table almost all week. Guess we are going to be watching a few movies tomorrow. Well at least there is some nice arm muscles to see in one of them :p meh who needs a plot line with muscles to look at (I swear its all for art to see whats connected to what and how the arm moves.....ok maybe not :p) I'll admit to being shallow :D

Drawing: More nekkid people :p Actually I used oil pastels to draw a horse skull and then we used turps on the pastels to move the pastels around. Pretty neat effect. The whole class was probably stoned off of the fumes though lol

Listening: Our Lady Peace who I have listened to since... wait never mind that just makes me feel old lol

Trying: To think of something to do with that pumpkin. Which weighs almost 5 pounds, heavy little thing. Too heavy to play hot potatoe/pumpkin with. Someone might end up brained :p (and covered in goo)

Ahh 'nekkid' one of my favourite words. Books are like buses in our house: first none comae along, and then all the Library holds and books I have ordered from the shop all come at once!!

I've never used turps with pastels before - sounds like an interesting effect. Actually, it's been so long since I played with pastels I've probably forgotten how, LOL. I like muscles too, so we can be shallow together. What a way to go! ;-)

nekkid is good .... I always thought that if they sent the troops to battle totally nekkid...there wouldn't be too many wars...

makes you feel old? HAH !! you'll get no sympathy from me ...

Hmm... can't help you with the pumpkin ideas...

You reminded me of the oil painting classes I took as a kid and that smell of turps came rushing back. Woah dude....

cindy its just a great word to say :) yeah they all show up at once and then you have to rush to get through them all

thanks shashi :)

judi, being shallow can be fun lol if guys can do it so can we lol :D its a great effect, just wish the turps were not so strong smelling

vee, lol that would work! and nekkid fighting men can be fun to watch lol I was 12 when i first starting listening to them, long time ago ;p

jenaveve, yeah woah is right, but I can't imagine how people sniff the stuff to get stoned. stinks to much. next time we need to open a window in class, unless getting the class stoned was the idea lol
