Because the first cold of the season didn’t really allow me to spend 3 hours watching a subtitled movie – although I watched Namastey London, but it’s less than 3 hours and I had already seen it dubbed and cut on the Italian TV a couple of years ago, LOL – I mostly worked at night, either reading or writing or coloring SKYBAND.
Which led to a couple of things (not in chronological order of happening, haha). One night I was toying with Wordle and Desktop crashed, so it didn’t save the page of SKYBAND I was coloring (Photoshop doesn’t have the auto-save like Word, if it does, I don’t know where it is, sigh). So I had to redo it the day after. But I also had fun with Wordle and Star Minds so here’s the result – which means when I edit it I’ll have to find “asked” and replace whenever possible. Yeah, my character seem to ask a lot of questions, sigh.
Second thing – while giving one last look on Facebook before going to bed, I found a desperate call from one of my muses (can’t link to his post *f… Timeline!* , so I’m copy/pasting here – go to the official page and look for it, if you want to know more and see the comments):
Everyone please listen. This is serious. If you are on my page and you are on this one… (link removed) You have a choice to make. I cannot have people giving this person what she wants any longer. This has gone beyond humorous “fun”.
I had noticed he had many Facebook profiles, both private and fan pages, and I wondered how he could keep up! Then it turns out most are fake – I know I noticed the one that said “in a relationship with (that person)” and wondered “I thought the mother of his children was called something else!”. Turns out I was right, LOL.
This so reminds me of the woman who took to a Canadian court her case – she said at least 3 of her children’s biological father was Keanu Reeves – and lost. That was a couple of years ago, and I don’t want to google that story for you. But then, this proves that those guys born in 1964 are too hot for their own good, haha! I have much appreciated 3, so I know what I’m saying – but I’ve never stalked them!
I use them as models and, when I can, I let them know, but it’s just their faces, not them. And yes, I might have had “virtual boyfriends” since the 1980s, but I’ve never told the celebrity of the time. Now it’s slightly different, as you all know who my muses are, but I’m not saying I’m in a relationship with them. They’re just muses, I’m not interested in a relationship in the first place, and even my virtual love life has reached some form of stop. So yeah, I can look obsessed, but I’m not, really.
I still don’t get people who get so obsessed with someone that they become stalkers. Or, if it’s a celebrity, they go after their money, even if they say it’s just love or something. I don’t believe in love as a form of possession, so that’s probably why I’ll never be a stalker. I respect your freedom as long as you respect mine. And to me love is sharing, not possessing. A jealous lover would be very short-lived with me.
I had left my heart on a man in the 1990s (a real guy, not a celebrity! ) and now I’m hoping to see him again and see what happens – after almost 20 years anything can happen! I had fun meeting old classmates (and I finished high school in 1984, most I hadn’t seen since), so I’m kind of curious to see what happens if and when I meet him again. Maybe it just wasn’t meant to be, but at least I won’t have a regret!
This goes well with the study about friendship between men and women. Sice 1982 I agree with Pierre Cosso’s line in La Boum2, “I don’t believe in friendship between boys and girls”. My experience is – yes, there can be friendship after he has made his move and got his “No thanks” answer. I do have male friends like that, and no, I never slept with them, but yes, they did try to have a pass – just in case!
Mmm, can you tell I’m working on a love-story? I’m putting a lot of myself in the gal, especially since in the original (a screenplay) she didn’t really have a voice. So I’m adding her diary, and the third person narration is always from the male protagonist POV. But the novel (or novella?) will show also her POV, which didn’t come out in the “movie” version, LOL. Well, maybe it will, if it gets picked up at last, haha!
Anyway, it’s not only in the contemporary stories that I put myself. There’s a lot of me in technological angel Kol-ian, even if he’s male and not from Earth – but then, he falls in love with a hunk, not a vixen, so that was the easy part, LOL! Okay, maybe my characters look all the same because they’re mostly based on me, but then I have a split personality, makes for some interesting variations, haha!
I guess that’s all for now… I wish you a great weekend… sorry I can’t share my reading yet, but 1) I havent’ finished it and 2) I’ll do a special post for this one, so stay tuned!
