This is from a photo of the Sydney Opera house as seen from the harbor bridge pylon. You can do the bridge climb for like $100AUS or you can climb the pylon for like $8AUS. And, as a plus, you can take a camera up to the pylon, but you can't on the bridge climb.

I drew this, and it wasn't until I got to the rear end of it that I realized it wasn't one of my photos. It's somehow from one of my sister's trips. Don't remember how I got this.
Reading: Dermaphoria (threw State of Fear to the side AGAIN)
Listening to: North Mississippi Allstars (definitely suggest you get a copy of their latest CD "Hernando." Look in the blues section, but they could just as well be in the rock section)

Here's a drawing of my home studio, as seen from my computer near my living room windows. It's a little "uncluttered" at the moment, as you cannot see the work table (which is very cluttered). The lampshade is actually crooked at the moment; had just changed the lightbulb and must have knocked it.
Otherwise, life is good this week, except for my left wrist is hurting, probably from my fall in the back of my store over a week ago. I didn't hurt until just a couple of days ago. If it still aches by Monday, I might have to run to the doctor to have them look at it.

I won't ruin tonight's episode for those of you who do watch the show, but might not have seen it yet.
I've been a Chris March fan since the first episode. When he was eliminated early on, I didn't know if I'd watch the rest of the season. Fortunately, I did, because they brought him back the very next episode. He just has more joy and fun with designing fashion than anyone else on the show, and his zest shows through in his work and his personality.
When I sat down tonight to watch the episode, I wanted to do a sketch of his winning design from last week, where he designed for a female pro wrestler.
As a side note, my comments area got spammed again today. I enabled word verification for comments, and I hope that stops it. If it continues, I'll have to start moderating comments, which I don't want to do, because I really value each and every comment that comes through here. But, I also want to protect people who read this blog from getting a virus by clicking on a link through my site. So, please bare with me.

Who really eats these little hearts? I don't remember them ever tasting good.
Spent the early afternoon cleaning the big fish tank and topping off the small one (by small, I mean 30 gallons). Then, I made stuffed peppers for lunch and dinner
Reading: State of Fear by Michael Crichton (I've owned it for 3 years, about time I read it, I suppose, especially since Next was so good)
Listening to: The Monkees

Here is a link to the information http://www.stclairsuperior.org/yearoftherat_sponsors.html if anyone is interested in how this works. There's a photo of the sculpture blank (he's a rat, but he's cute), and information on how to sponsor one of them.
My design is the "Pie-rat." :D
