Is it cool if I wait a wee bit till I have some more time? ( I'm a bit squeezed for time right now cause I have tons of stuff to send off to people at postcardx, a schooltrip I have to join in on and help council, a concert I heave to help along with and then some homework to catch up on) I would totally love to make something, but I want to be able to give someone something I have spent time and energy on and something they will obviousely enjoy and will enhance the BD experience for them. Can I check this spot out later then, and send off smth at another time?

All you need is a willing fantastically tall best friend ( I'm 5 foot two eyes of blue and all,..and my best friend is so tall that my foot is the size of his hand...need I say more) 1 and a half cans of EXTRA STRONG hairspray, 1 and a half cans of EXTRA STRONG hair gel or wax or smth of the sort and a hairdryer. ( it took forever and was a total riot to do) The expression...well my mother suggested I suck my tummy in...I was feeling all accused and fat and decided to revolt and do an I'm-not-a-bloody-anorexic-that-looks-like-this-look...then nauturally she snapped the foto.

Well I saw the chickens and I thought OMG THEY ARE SO CUTE I AM GOING TO DIE! Bought em and eventually ( a year later and also after having bought more) I got some clear strechy elastic string out. Now I just tied the string round the neck of a chicken, knot it and tie it a couple more times and then the same with one leg of a following chicken, make sure it is secure and tada! ( the plastic of the chickens is too hard to puncture, so it was the only way). Also, the chickens look fabulous while floating in clear pink jello! ( I had never made jello and never celebrated thnxgiving, when a friend invited me. It was my own take on what to bring along)

Hiya! Well this seemed like a fun place to post! So I went through a phase in which I dyed my hair every other week, hence it has been just about every color of the rainbow. Alas, I have few pictures I can find of any of that, at the moment. So I have a couple of boring styles I went through.
longer hair pulled back...
1950s fun!~
The look I go for now, minus  elfears and skirt
rock festival fun! The hair stayed up all day long, through a HEAVY rainfall and a smallshirt change. It could bend and everything, FUN!

"Actually that is complete crap. No offence meant at all! ( let me explain) You see, Egon Schiele is infamous for his crotch shots. He painted naked women with their legs exposed and in alluring sexual positions. This leads many people to think of him as a complete perverd though with some talented skill. However, the real reason Schiele did all these particularly strange angles and crotch shots is a little more realistic and practical. He was a fairly poor artists and had difficulty affording models at times. One of his close friends was a gynacologist. This is where his friend helped him out. He would let Schiele come and paint/ draw whilst he examined his female patients. To make the drawings and paintings marketable, Schiele would often add a stocking or other specific garments. So really, Schiele was an artist using opportunity. I learned this through an Expo I saw on his work which was both fantastic and elaborate. Unfortunately, most people, including people that choose to write about his work, are unware of this fact."[/quote]

I just called a friend of mine who is an art historian and she claims that your version of the story isn't correct.  I don't mean any offense either, but I'm just relaying the information I've been given.  I was being sarcastic when I said Schiele was a pervert, but he was, in fact, a womanizer.  There's quite a bit of documentation to back this up.  My friend never heard of the gynecologist story.

You are absolutely correct about the fact that he was a womanizer! Also, there is suspiscion as to what exactly his relations where with some of the young women/ children he used as models. He was arrested for having conducted in inappropriate ways. The expo was specifically on Egon Schiele. I saw it last May at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It was an interesting show with a lot of background info on the artist himself and then some really interesting take on his work by other contemporary artists. I wasn't familiar with that particular todbit of info either, and surprised since I had read a lot about him. I think it's crucial though.
