Lucinda is 18 and Australian. She is a first year design student at university who seems to have far too much time on her hands while having no time at all.

Comment to be added. Tell me something about yourself.

So people in publishing and writing have been writing about book covers on their blogs lately, so on KT Literary this little competition is going on.

1 - Go to Fake Name Generator. The name that appears is your author name.

2 - Go to Random Word Generator. The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.

3 - Go to FlickrCC. Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.

4 - Use Photoshop, Picnik, or similar (I use Snagit Editor) to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in, as desired.

5 - Post it to your site along with this text.

I figure I'm a design student. I'm thinking of book covers as something I might want to do in the future so I had a go, here's my cover.

I had fun doing it, I haven't really used photoshop outside of uni much lately so it was nice to just have a play around again. I might end up making another one or two later.


ETA: I was bored so I made another one with a new random word for the title

It has been a silly amount of time since I've posted here... uh... sorry?

So last Friday I was in the city with a couple of friends and we went to JB Hi-Fi, where there was a sale. My little capitalist, obsessive self wanted to buy every single DVD of every show and movie I've ever seen and loved, but my walled disagreed. I really wish I wasn't so broke, I want to own all of Buffy.

I did give in to my needy heart and bought season 1 of True Blood because it was on sale and I'd just watched the first three episodes of season 2, which are amazing.

So for the past few days I've been re-watching the entire first season, I finished last night.

I. Love. Lafayette!

And now I'm thinking in a Southern accent, which is weird because usually when I think in a foreign accent it's British... so this is a different experience for me, and not one I entirely object to, this accent is fun!

I finished Buffy a couple of weeks ago... and I cried. And I loved it. And I wish it didn't have to finish. And I WANT TO WATCH IT ALL AGAIN D:

I love Buffy too much.

In unrelated news I can't wait to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I finished re-reading the book a few days ago and it's just rekindled my complete love for this series. I hadn't read HBP since it first came out and I'd forgotten how amazing it is... I was too busy adoring Deathly Hallows (which I'm half way through now).

Anyway, I'm going down to the beach this Friday with some friends and we're getting back on Wednesday next week, when HBP comes out.

I really want to go see it the moment we get back home. I don't even want to bother going home, I just want to go straight to the cinema and see it.

Yes, I know it's not going to be as amazing as the book, I know there are going to be things wrong with it... but I've been watching trailers and interviews and clips and I want to see it RIGHT NOW!

I'm too impatient for life.

I also can't wait to go to the beach. I'll be staying at my friend's beach house. We did this last year after we finished high school and it was so much fun then. This time is going to be even more awesome.

We're crazy people. One of my friends had a video camera in his car when we went to the city last week so we filmed our trip back to his house and he edited in music (the Star Wars Theme) and other such things. It was ridiculous, and hilarious... and my inane comments were just silly. It was like I just popped in to say something incredibly silly every so often.

Also yesterday we went to McDonalds and got Frozen Cokes (i.e. Frokes).
So that was fun.



Wow, that was rambly.

Yeah I started re-watching certain favorite episodes of Doctor Who a couple of weeks ago... and that let to re-watching the last two episodes of series 1, and then the whole of series 1 with a few episodes from series 2 dotted in between.

And now Torchwood and on to The Sarah Jane Adventures next!

Maybe I am a little in love with the sci-fi and the characters and the accents (and Rose, Jack and The Doctor... OT3?)

I cannot help it, everything is just so perfect and pretty and wonderful!
I'll go back to Torchwood and leave you alone now.

Far too many awesome codes... the number of layout posts in my memories is far too large. It is SILLY.

And I feel strangely lacking in beautiful icons after looking at a few people's icons. I need more pretty, simple icons. I need to be better at icons. I need more icon space, but alas, I am poor so none for me.

I am boring. Clearly I am too boring for you.

I spend my days going to university and learning things... and watching tv. Far too much tv. Well not so much tv as catching up on Lost and watching Sailor Moon.

Oh dear. I am terrible.

But also not, I FEEL NO SHAME.
(do not judge me)

Okay bye then, I have nothing more to say because, as previously mentioned, I am boring.

(except that I finished reading So Yesterday by Scott Westerfeld and am at a loss as to what to read now. Something inside me wants to reread The Host... and maybe I will, and will bemoan the fact that it's so loooong)

Hey look here are some more words I am writing and you are reading!

And here is a meme!

Comment on this meme and I will:
1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a color, a photo, a word etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LJ.

I don't anticipate terribly many comments for this, but why the hell not!

I finally got around to going through my friends list for a little tidy up. Mostly just got rid of dead or locked journals. My profile feels less crowded now.

On that note, I have new profile codes and a new layout, and I did some shuffling with my icons; got rid of some and added some new ones.

And on a completely different note!

For the past three weeks or so I've been trying to eat healthy and exercise more. Call it a diet if you will, whatever. The point is, I have completely stopped eating junk food and I'm thinking about what I put in my body. And doing 100 crunches every day.

Given the fact that I've been sticking to this remarkably well in light of my past experiences with healthy eating and the like, I probably shouldn't feel as guilty as I do for the few times I've slipped up. Not so much slipped up as... had two slices of the chocolate birthday cake my friends made for me and missed my crunches that day and yesterday when my friends stayed the night (we got spectacularly drunk too... yeah).

Andbutso today I had one piece of chocolate (one little piece)... you know, one little piece won't hurt being the general thing my brain tells me.

Of course, once I have one little piece of something I love as much as I love chocolate I just want to keep eating it until there's nothing left. I didn't though (willpower!), but it's still a kind of shit thing my brain does. That jerk.

I am a fickle thing. I give in to temptation so easily on some things. I'm incredibly lazy. Yet when I'm challenged to do something (like giving up chocolate for lent in year 10 and BEDA) or really set my mind to it, I can keep going on some challenging something for longer than I would ever expect.

Then I give in and everything crumbles but I have my small victories (like not failing lent in year 10 and making it all the way through BEDA), and that's nice I guess.

I love my friends.

Last night my two best friends came over for what was supposed to be just an X-Men movie marathon. But they decided to make it an impromptu, belated birthday celebration, since I was away for my 18th. They showed up with balloons, champagne, a candle and a home made birthday cake.

They're the best.

We ate cake, drank champagne and watched X-Men. And it was awesome.

Lucy gave me Postsecret by Frank Warren. I read it all today and it was lovely.

Aaaaand I lent her Suite Scarlett and Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson, and passed on Buffy (it's on a rotation between our group of friends. I'm still waiting on seasons 5-7).

That is why my friends are awesome. They bring me cake and balloons and champagne and we share books and DVDs.
