This is.. the space in which I create

Well considering that I don't actually "create" a whole lot except for crappy essays these days the first thing I thought of was my kitchen. Also to be honest I'm not really creating a whole lot in their lately either, just whatever is easiest and that my brother can prepare most of before I interfere and take over the stove.

I should point out that this is an old photo I took a few months ago so it doesn't really illustrate my point very well, I think I was just seeing what my kitchen looked like from the view of my chopping board... or something equally strange.

I might also point out something about my rant about Across the Universe (yes I've already bought *cough* downloaded *cough* the soundtrack and watched a dozen youtube clips of it). I have a tendency to get a tad... uh obsessive about musicals. It's hard to explain but let's just say that some of my favourite movies/plays include Les Miserables, Moulin Rouge, Chicago, The Sound of Music and Life is Beautiful. I guess I like a song that tells a story. I also just really really love a good voice, all my life I've wished I could sing well, but sadly not. There's something about the music in these movies that really makes my heart swell and I can't help but want to watch it again and again, like listening to a favourite album.

So don't think I'm too much of a freak please.

*Freak!* Only kiddin'. You know, I've never seen Chicago or Moulin Rouge? (Who's the freak now?!!) Something I shall change in the near future.

Yay! Another kitchen shot for This Is... I was beginning to think I was the only one going with this angle. I'm eyeing off the Baileys... I have an apparently-awesome home made Baileys recipe (I say 'apparently' because it's from a friend who swears by it, but I've never actually made it myself).

Ooh, and that shiny saucepan on the right-side of the sink there looks a lot like the one I just bought.

well least your kitchen gets used. I think mine is only a place for spider to hang out.

and I don't think your a freak at all, Im actually the same with getting obsessed with movies. I then download the soundtrack and really get into it. Like Garden State, American Beauty, Somersault, Cruel Intentions...and the list goes on!! So I totally get where your coming from.

oh and Moulin Rouge...I got so obsessed with that I paused scenes and did little drawings, like the scene in the bedroom with the heart shaped window. so pretty.

ok now im sounding like the freak, ill shut up now.

hahah I love the "hey they're playing all my favourite songs!" your hilarious.

I think I convinced a few of my friends to watch the movie just by getting them to listen to the soundtrack.
