About

The title of this blog came from some idle scribbling — I had just bought a new bottle of ink and was testing it. I suspect most people write normal things like ‘Hello’ or their name/signature, but I do not.

My tests come out something like this:

You can see that I tried. The brand name is up in the top right hand corner: J. Herbin’s Poussiere de Lune. And then all sense goes downhill:

‘Hello, evil purple ink. Not so evil on paper. You look like the evil Disney queen in the bottle, but on paper, you’re quite nice. Yay!’

And further down the page,some scrawls and the comment, ‘YAY SHADING!’ Because, well, it does indeed have very nice shading.

I was testing it again later and wrote, ‘All I do is write strangely incoherent love letters to ink’, which struck me as very true and a rather nice title for a blog in which I rave about some very normal things in very strange ways.

The Disney queen I mentioned in the scribble, by the way, is Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent, who terrified me when I was a child and still terrifies me now at 21 years of age. She struck me as the epitome of all evil because, unlike the other Disney villains, she doesn’t yell and cackle madly, and I didn’t quite get why she was being so horrible in the first place. Maleficent is calm and cool and decidedly evil and basically, if she were to try to take over the world, her plans would beat my plans. She also pwns me in snarky sarcasm. Terrifying. (Her rhyming spells are a bit twee, though.) She is a threat to my world domination dreams.

Back to the point: this blog is just a rave-space and a rant-space, in which I write those strangely incoherent love letters to inanimate objects of awesome. I save coherency for my essays and papers and novels; this is where I splutter and bash the keyboard ^^.

  1. Awesome intro 🙂
    I love your rambling writing!

  2. Stumbled across your blog because i was so curious about the blog name 🙂 Enjoying your writing!

  3. Drooling at your Alannah Hill wardrobe….except wish we could see your face in photos…it’s a bit scary to see blank faces with no features (to be honest)

    • I live to scare. 😛

      Seriously, though, will definitely consider putting my face up. Not sure if it’s terribly viable, as I pull ridiculous faces. They’re very possibly scarier than blank ones!
