Think Imma do this one... join me?

Creative Doodling with Judy West: Celtic Challenge 6: Celtic Challenge 6 As I like flowers I have drawn this Celtic Flower Design. My Challenge to you this week is to draw something out...

facebook meme or no...

Some say it's just a Facebook meme ('just'?? isn't Facebook the authority on Evahthang?)...

Here's the message floating around:

It's International Book Week. The rules: grab the closest book to you, turn to page 52, post the 5th sentence as your status. Don't mention the title. Copy the rules as part of your status.
  I've googled and I've googled and I've googled and can't seem to confirm or deny that it IS International Book Week.  Hmm. Actually, here's what Wikipedia says:

Also, I've seen the rules change slightly as to which page, which sentence... bah! 

Well, makes no never-mind to me.  I guess the real fun is the part about "don't mention the title".
Sooooooo, let's stick to the rules above and let's play the game... And...
Ready, Set... GO!

Page 52, Sentence 5:
"She watched her brother grab the ring of keys from the wall, then lead the pretty girl out the back door of the bakery and into the little, weed-choked courtyard behind."

Incidentally, Banned Book Week IS Sept. 30-Oct. 6

just so ya know.

The Fashion World...

... not usually something I'm terribly interested in. I have my "style"... some might say it's a lack there of. Nonetheless, I saw a story about Carine Roitfeld on CBS Sunday Morning and was fascinated. A fashion model in her youth, she's now VERY accomplished in her late fifties. What fascinates me is the fact that she's not afraid of aging, indeed, she celebrates it and she doesn't hide the fact that she's a very sexual, alluring being even though she's no longer that young "beauty". AND the world celebrates her "look" as well and copies it.
