my best friend's wedding no. 2

no, these are not our pictures yet. they are still coming.
these were taken by the sister (inge) of the groom (friedl).
i snatched them off facebook.

the lovely couple.

the groom. is he wringing his hands with nerves? is he straining his eyes to see if his bride is on the other end of the aisle? well, she was pretty late. kept him on his toes.

ross and me. i'm a sucker for such romance and prettiness. i had a couple tears in me eye.

camera obscura.

how beautiful are these images (by marja pirlla) ... is it inside or outside, or both at once?
seeing this, i've decided i'm going to make one. ross, can i use one of your windows and one of your walls?
man, i can feel another obsession coming on ... (i'll put up pictures when i'm done.)

my best friend's wedding

was this weekend past. it was literally the most beautiful and most fun wedding i have ever been to. ross and i took pictures, but they're not ready yet, so i scrounged on facebook till i found this one that riaan took. it'll do for now...

have you ever worn half a kg of gold around your wrist?

here i am doing just that. it feels kinda heavy. but also good. good in a where's my getaway car kind of way.

ross took these pictures for anglo gold. i'm too lazy to write about it. just read his blog.

waiting for render.

while waiting:

i watched this. its funny and awesome.

and i'm becoming so so nervous and also so curious about the casting tomorrow. stills i can do. film? i'm too damn shy. i'd rather just vomit on my own shoes maybe.

and still, the render continues.

i heart collages.

and hence i like these photo-'collages', if you will, from whatever you...'s flickr photostream. found them via cath's pretty blog which in turn i found when she left me a nice comment on my previous post...

okay, but now i have to turn away, my computer-screen-eyes are acting up.

this is my opinion:

pretty = a little boyish

pretty = a little geeky

pretty = a little old-fashioned

clockwise from left : david sykes photography; dear creatures; fox and fawn;fffound (i think)

the start of great lists to come.

i'm tired of writing. thus, lists to follow. weird cravings i have today:

1. meat inspired decor. i want a steak pillowcase pretty badly now that i've seen it. even if it gives me bad dreams, which i think it might.
2. dear creatures' everything. please.
3. a coke.
4. french toast. i dont have to explain everything do i?
5. a pet rabbit. yes i say this often. for a reason.

another list. things i'm sorry for today:

1. forgetting my sister's birthday.
2. not having a coke.

okay bye, x

i've been away for a while for the following reasons:
1. i had the crazy flu
2. i work too hard (while suffering from said flu)
3. i've been busy making my pretty bears and birds, which takes ages since i dont have my own computer and have to hijack ross's to work on when he's not looking. i lie, the real reason that its taking so long is 'carnivale'.

anyway, i've been listening to a lot of tom waits recently.

here's a song i'm particularly fond of...from his album 'orphans' and the film 'the tiger and the snow'
its very apt for this time of year for those of you who whine about the winter being too cold, too long, etc. etc.
(as warren would say) man up.

i found this on makool loves you, and it made me so happy. its a mustache comb necklace.

from the mouth of makool:
'We thought it was about time someone made a nice mustache accessory. So we did it ourselves. This necklace is really meant for boys but it's solid sterling silver and very pretty so I've been wearing one and using it to comb the mustache in my dreams.'
