I just took a baked potato out of the fridge, split it and half, and poured maple syrup on it. Starchy and sweet, it’s a delicious oddity. I call it: The Great Canadian Potato.
The Great Canadian Potato
- 1 Potato
- Some maple syrup
- Bacon bits(?)
Take a baked potato and cut it in half. You can either serve it warm or serve it chilled. Pour maple syrup on top. Add any other condiments on top, I think some bacon bits would be great. And there you have it: The Great Canadian Potato!
I’m trying to doodle everyday with black fine-tip marker and some chalk pastels on paper. I’m pretty pleased with the results so far. Here are some ones I thought you all might like to see:
I have a growing number of self-portraits, with myself dressed/styled in an androgynous/masculine way. I wonder, when I die, how will people interpret that? I often think about all of the sketches and works I’ll leave to be found, after I die, and what will happen to them. Maybe they’ll only become worth something when I can make no more? My Ego can only hope!
This is part of an old drawing with felt-tip pen, chalk pastels, and pencil that turned out to have creepy eyes. Inspired by china dolls, Directoire Fashion Riding clothes, and, you guessed it, androgyny. It was just a fashion sketch anyways…(I took a cruddy picture with a camera, as I don’t have a scanner)
This is just a crafty-themed link dump. Without further ado, here are some links to cool projects I found through “surfing the web.”

It was pure serendipity! I did some experimenting with my makeup and figured out a crazy-awesome trick. I really love matte lipstick because it (should)stays on a long time. On a whim, instead of lipstick, I used Avon’s eyeshadow primer on my lips. I got this cool supermodel/androgynous affect, I think I looked amazing. On top of that, it stayed put all day–even after I drank coffee, water, and had a snack. This stuff is better than any lipstick I have ever used! Dear Avon: start making bright red eyeshadow primer so that I can then use it as lipstick.
How to Use Cream Eyeshadow or Eyeshadow Primer as Lipstick
- Get a creamy eyeshadow or eyeshadow primer that matches your skintone and some lip balm.
- Put a very light layer of lip balm on your lips, especially if they are dry.
- Get some eyeshadow/eyeshadow primer on the tip of your finger and spread it across your lips. Make sure it doesn’t glob up in the creases of your skin.
- Pat your lips firmly with your finger, apply more eyeshadow or primer to finger, if needed, to pat on top of the first layer. Make sure it doesn’t glob up in the creases of your skin!
Ever since I bought the eyeshadow primer, my makeup routine has completely changed for the better. Before, I wouldn’t wear much eyeshadow, usually using a beige-y pink creme eyeshadow for a nice “nude” look(thanks, Mary Kay, for getting me into cream eyeshadow). Now, I can use the primer, and then go wild with dramatic colours and designs. I feel like a makeup artist!
As a side note: I am not being payed or sponsored by anyone or any company to write this. This is a 100% real and 100% honest makeup recommendation from me, your buddy from The Internet! So there!
I secretly have a fear of deer. Even thinking about it makes me a little bit sweaty and shaky.
