29 Aug – August Memories

Tell us one memorable moment from August.

One memorable moment from August…

Commencing Operation Decorator Storm on our living room – changing everything from couch covers to cushions all the way through to loose-leaf tea tins.

In the space of two weeks, we purchased and dyed several chair covers – although the green ones didn’t work very well at all, and will need to be re-dyed. The couch covers worked quite well.

August became the month of YELLOW. Couch cover, cushions, placemats… lots of yellow.

August was the month my role at work also changed slightly and I ended up with my own desk away from reception so that I could focus on my work… and type catch-up blog posts like this during my lunch break hehehe. I got to spend money to buy items so that I could set up my desk more efficiently and ergonomically and enjoy having so much extra space to utilise.

August was the month I saw Lady Gaga TWICE in one weekend and loved every minute of it.


Daily Prompt: Roy G. Biv

Write about anything you’d like, but make sure that all seven colors of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet — make an appearance in the post, either through word or image.

Boom. There’s your rainbow right there. Muth-fuckin’ Care Bears, bitches. When I think of rainbow there’s a distinct list that comes to my mind:

  • Care Bears
  • Skittles
  • Rainbow Cakes
  • Gay Pride
  • Actual rainbows

Surely I’m not the only person who instantly had a Skittles moment when they read that prompt? Surely?! It really is a piece of marketing genius ‘Taste the rainbow’So simple and yet so effective.

As a member of GLBTQIA community, I’m more than accustomed to the rainbow. I love colour – I always have. I think it started with shows like Care Bears, and just continued from that.

Ahh, the good ol’ Care Bear Stare… if only that was something that could be done in real life. Imagine what something like Harry Potter would be like if instead of lightning-like magic coming out of his wand, he was able to throw around some rainbows instead… would certainly put a whole new spin on that entire franchise.

The other thing that I am a little bit obsessed with are rainbow layer cakes…

It’s something that I’ve always wanted to try and make, but I’ve never actually taken the time to attempt. I’ve made many layer cakes previously, just not a rainbow one… I’m not really sure why that is, though. I think perhaps because it just seems like it’s almost too much fiddling around – mixing colours, separating cake mixes into multiple bowls etc etc… but there’s no denying that it’s a very impressive result. One day… perhaps I should make that one of my New Years Resolutions – make a rainbow layer cake??
