nobody knows

is this all that you want

One of the advantages of being nocturnal, is seeing things like this.
It seemed abnormally light when i finally switched my light out at around 3am last night/this morning. I almost didn't get up to inspect the strange, orangey glow coming through my curtains but my curiousity usually gets the better of me.
To my delight, it was snowing and the streetlights were turning my little corner of the world a bright, burnt orange.
No-one else in my family witnessed this because they sleep normal hours but i don't mind.
I like to see things others don't.

christmas morning creeps

We are all about the twinkly lights in the Boyd household.
I don't normally partake in Christmas decorations in my room, mostly out of laziness, but this year i invested in some metallic star lights. They have smaller stars cut out of them, which means they do this to my room:

I'm kind of in love with them.

that secret that you know

'It's Running You With Red'

Drawn a few months ago. I had forgotten its existence, as my sketchbooks have been tucked away in drawers, ready to come out when the need to work again struck - just tingles right now but it's coming.

This is a piece entirely open to interpretation, even for myself as i forced no particular story. It was an experiment into the collaboration of images and whether a tangible link could be made between them. I don't really like to force things as i'm interested in real life and the absurdities that naturally go with it. So, in order to 'create' an image, which generally goes against the grain of reality, i took a shot in the dark with my reference material and let the work grow from there. I'm not sure if it works but it's one of my favourites.

10 points for those who know who the first image is of.

My apologies for the absolutely crap quality of this photograph, my camera cannot handle black or my caffeine addict hands.

'The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.'

I just ruined the season finale of True Blood for myself.
I suck.
Pun intended.

I reached 10,000 views on DA this evening
Quite satisfying really.

I was happily surprised to find my weather report being snowed on =]
Just enough snow today to make me happy all day long.
Inside, i've remained 5 years old.

I sometimes wonder if there's anyone else out there that discovers mysterious bruises and grazes on themselves throughout the day.

One bruised leg and one grazed thumb.
How long they've been there, i could not say.
I think i have sleepy fights with myself in the night.
My camera cannot handle photographing in the dark.


I adore Glee.
I'd been waiting a stupidly long time to see it and one episode in, i'm hooked.
What clinched it though, was the cast - the actual cast, no miming here - singing Journey at the end of the episode. =]
I love Journey.
It's bordering on ridiculous how much i love them.
If only Rock Band would include Don't Stop Believin' in the next release, i'd be a very happy girl.
Anyway, have a look at the Glee club performing one of my favourite songs.

I've become a little bewitched by the sunsets the past few days.
Plenty of documentation will be occurring.

This is a real sweet way of presenting a bio.
Not that it actually tells you very much but sweet all the same.
Websites with a bit of quirk are always better than the run of the mill.

I really need to get a website set up.

Most of the images above can be seen from this window, the view from my room. It's a pretty nice place to be.

Lots of people have visited my little town and proclaimed it rubbish.
They're very wrong.
I've lived here all my life - bar a 3 year stint in Ellon, of which i remember nothing about! - and it's pretty beautiful, if you're willing to look in the right places and in the right way.
