FQ TOPIC: Decorated

FQ1: How have you decorated the walls of your living space (photos, posters, works of art, etc.)?

The walls of my house are stark and bare. The colours are neutral and non-committal. My house has the feeling of a fly-by-night shonky timeshare space meant to fool the casual observer into thinking it's a cosy home but with the ability to up-and-leave at 30 minutes notice.

FQ2: How have you decorated your body, both intentionally (piercings, tattoos, etc.) and unintentionally (wounds, scars, etc.)?

A couple of drunken weekends in Wellington with every intention of marking my body with ink and needles failed due to my inability to co-ordinate such endeavours under alcoholic influence. saying that, most tattooists worth-a-damn won't tattoo a drunken bum, let alone a shapely ankle.

I do have scars: one on my forehead where I head butted the corner of a concrete step when I was 2 years old. A nice one on my heel where I tried to slice it off by jumping into the compost bin from swinging on the clothesline to find a sheet of glass (presumably the glass was on top of the compost bin to encourage the heat) laying on the top and smashing through it. I didn't notice I'd cut myself until I got yelled at for leaving blood on the kitchen floor. I wasn't very big - I remember my mother lifting me up to sit on the side of the kitchen bench with my feet in the sink. I needed a number of stitches to hold my heel together which was kind of cool. As far as adult scars: I just checked but the welding scar I had on my neck has faded to nothing over the years so I won't mention it.

FQ3: How have you decorated your computer's "desktop"? Post a snapshot if you want.

I decorate my desktop by saving everything to it. I have more folders, pdfs, zipped files and general crap on my desktop than anyone, anywhere, anytime. There is no way I'm posting a screenshot it's just far too embarassing.

FQ PROJECT: Decorate your blog today! Create some art with an online Etch-a-Sketch (like the one here) and post a snapshot of your efforts (or, if you're not an Etch-a-Sketch fan, draw us a picture using whatever you want).
