on the camera...

not much of anything to say today
it's Monday  !!
watched the Oscars last night
mostly because that's all that was on

wasn't a very good show, was it  :{
boring I found
if the entertainment industry can't keep us entertained
we're really in big trouble I say!!!
how can actors and performers be so bad
and they get paid so much for it
it's almost pornographic
and who in the hell dresses these women
some of them could barely move for fear of falling over
or in most cases
falling OUT
we've all got them girls
but do we have to show them
in such precarious ways
some  can get away with it
but most
not so much!!!
we need to go back to the
"Movie star" days when they got paraded out and about once in a while
and then went back behind the high walls and big gates
to live the high life and leave the rest of us in our bliss!!
sorry but it got me really pissed off watching how stupid they basically all are
no education no knowledge past how to get on camera
living like they deserve the paychecks and forgetting so quickly what real life it
no class or couth
just miserable
seeing all the "power couples" who can barely stand to be in the same room together
must be so awful to have all that money and fame and still be unhappy

but outside where the TV ain't!!!!
there was a show of shows going on up there in the wild blue yonder
the moon
cuddling up in the cold blue sky and just shining their little hearts out
and if the sun had not been so shiny bright
mercury was there too
but it wasn't visible here coz of the angle
so  I took blue out
to snap a shot

completely useless and awful but hey
this ain't the movies

and talking about blue
(my camera for those of you who may not know)
it doesn't seem to be able to pick up the colours very well lately
above is a photo on the computer of the scarf I am currently hooking
and it shows up a lovely shade of blue/turq
when in fact it is
I have played with the editing but it doesn't help
so I took this just to show how
awfully awffff it is!!!!!
tisk tisk...guess it's the light or something

and another to show it more true to life
why are purple and blue and red so hard to take
hm mm maybe I should call Hollywood!!

with the navy blue yarn I'm knitting the same pattern as the purple one
the feather and fan
interesting how similar they are

I got sick of the tangles and bits all over the place
well hanging out of the drawer they are in
so I re wrapped them and with the bits too good to chuck out

I figure 8'd them into little bobbins to make them easy to use

and threw them into a bag !!!!!
because the drawers are now full of neatly spun balls of yarn

see how long that lasts!!!!

so I'm's time for tea
take care til I see ya next time
toddle ooooo
and I'd like to thank the academy
just for the hell of it

That moon and that star (Mars, isn't it?) shine over here too! They stop by here in the evening and then travel accross the Atlantic to go say hello and send my greetings to you :)
These are the real stars that count, aren't they?
I saw a bit of the others last night too but soon gave up. Sleep was more important--and like you said, most of them didn't say much that mattered. It seemed all they could talk about were the dresses and who made them...
Oh well. Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Liz Taylor, Grace Kelly... please come back! We miss you!

Enjoyed your blog! Loved the moon and planets. glad you saw that show, and it wasn't cloudy as it is tonight. I didn't see the Oscars. Heard someone getting a bit emotional on the radio. Sounds as though I didn't miss much!
Perhaps the colours would photograph better outside?

Well...I'm still laughing about the big night of stars. People have no shame anymore. Why do they even bother wearing anything. The price of those dresses could feed a small country. Anyway....I like your photo of yarn all pilled up, all neatly rolled. I want a ball winder!!!!!! I couldn't see any planets or the moon here.....way too cloudy :'{

Haha, that color was really way off! :) It truly can be the most annoying thing when the camera simply refuses to catch the true color. Someone told me to use a colored filter on the picture on photoshop, but I haven't figured that one out yet.

Ha! I had the Oscars on too and it was 8.30am our time. After a bit I walked to the kitchen and baked some muffins! Strawberries and flaked almonds...oh I would have walked over to your place if only you were next door and we could have had a fun time. Yes, I hate it when they are asked "who are you wearing"!!! Priorities have gone totally beserk! I mean I do enjoy clothes and things but there certainly has to be a limit! How I miss the Audrey Hepburn days!

Google photographing red and you should find some helpful suggestions ... it really is the worst colour to photograph well. Lovely pics of the heavens
