Winner + New Topic!!!

Well, the polls are over, & we have a winner! The winner this week is... EM! Congrats!

As for the new topic, Em already had a topic in mind, which I think is really awesome. This week's topic will be based on the popular Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"!Here's the rules for this particular topic: you have to draw your own interpretation of a portion of the song. Just listen to the song/read the lyrics & draw what comes to your mind.

The due date for this topic is Wednesday, May 7th @ Midnight!

To help you guys out, I've included a video from Youtube as well as the lyrics below to help those who aren't familiar with the awesomeness of this song!

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Ah... Ah...

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.


Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Disney Pop-Up Toy

As a baby this was my favorite toy: a Disney Pop-Up Button Toy Thingy! Screw your Tickle-Me Elmos & your battery powered baby cars... back in my day, THIS was technologically advanced (actually, Teddy Ruxpin was probably much more technologicallly-advanced, what with the "state-of-the-art" cassette player in his back & all, but that bear gave me the $&%#@! creeps!)

It always kinda bothered me that Dumbo of all characters would be in it. I mean seriously, Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Pluto & Dumbo? How does he fit in? & for some reason, the thing that activates the Pluto pop-up is broken, so I don't remember what the mechanism was to make him appear. I'm surprised I didn't snap off Pluto entirely, with me trying to pry him open for the past 18 years.

I still have this toy in my attic somewhere. If I find it, I'll be playing with it all weekend, or at least until I find something even MORE exciting that that. Now if I only knew where my Sit & Spin was...

~Ems Entry

Hi, its em.. I made a girl having a tea party with her teddy bear. That used to be my favorite game... my mom never had any make up for me to try on like normal little girls would do, she wouldn't wear makeup herself... but having tea with my stuff toys were always fun by itself. I dont think I've even put tea in it either, it was "imaginary" LoL. Please give me some critisism toooo.
