Photo of the Week: Smooothh

In which I again try and do all of the arty things. This is from Friday's girl's night, where, having made my way almost through the entire menu, I decide to try the make-your-own smoothie. With raspberry and lime. It was sweet and sharp. and I liked it. This is my classy social life now. … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Smooothh

Photo of the Week: Red Foam

I took a lot of spontaneous photos this week, and as such, I had no idea which to display today. I walked around a local park yesterday and starting taking photos of Orienteering posts; I took some more abstract shots of Gormely the Dapper Squirrel; I had some fascinating drinks at a friend's birthday on … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Red Foam

Photo of the Week: Earthy Luminescence

I am surprised, but I actually managed to capture the flaming top of this wonderful drink, aptly named the zombie, though Hallowe'en had nothing to do with it. It's cute, trying to be all manly in a special pint glass! This expensive cocktail is at a good, tolerable level of sweet - rather, in spite … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Earthy Luminescence

The Lincoln Steampunk Asylum (Part Two)

Yesterday’s post was Saturday at the Asylum. Since it rather got into heavy wordcount, I decided I’d split the days. Yesterday was all about nerfs, friends, shopping and drinking. Today – fiction, guns, jetpacks and the closing ceremony. Day two After pulling myself from a listless four hours sleep at 7am, I proceeded to breakfast … Continue reading The Lincoln Steampunk Asylum (Part Two)

The Lincoln Steampunk Asylum 2014

I woke myself at 6am and dressed in what shouldn’t have been darkness but was. I forget summer has pretty much come to an end. I shuffled into my swing dance petticoats, and zipped up the long black dress I’d bought from the vintage fair a month before the end of the academic term. It … Continue reading The Lincoln Steampunk Asylum 2014

Photo of the WeeK: Reflections

(Don't say a word. My schedule has been upside-down and uncertain of late.) Reflections. Literal patterns of light bouncing off their object and into our retina. On a technicality, our entire world when seen is a reflection of what it actually is. Be that as it may, in a full room of people it's difficult … Continue reading Photo of the WeeK: Reflections

Poem: Fingermarks on the Glass

Too many drinks make a hazy head – A thin line ‘tween clarity and peering through a traffic of images For the harmony of your tenor, For a stupid, goofy grin We both once shared. In drabs, our souls drip away; Though the clear transparency of your tone Mingles with my opaque dossier, One look … Continue reading Poem: Fingermarks on the Glass

Photo of the Week: Jellyfish

The photo taken last Monday (or was it so late that it was last Tuesday? xD), I discovered this sparkling ornament at one of the local clubs, Sakura. The photo is a little rough, but that's what I like about it; it bears an authentic quality. And, yes, I think it looks like a jellyfish … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Jellyfish
