A holiday decision

After my last rant I have decided that I should take the term break, too. I may be publishing a bit here and there if I feel that something needs to get out, but not every weekday.

It is getting rather calm on the Internet at the moment anyway. All the English people at least are enjoying the first sunshine, as it may be their last for the rest of the year, and towards Easter at least the Western world is getting rather busy. So it is a good time for me to take a break,too, to do some gardening, focus on the Bodybuilding and most of all... sleep a bit more.

I am now wishing you a wonderful spring holiday, loads of sunshine, no sun burns, and see you right after Easter"

Spring has sprung, how come...

  • Monday the weather looked fine, I decided that it is spring and wore a thin blouse. The aircon at work decided that it is summer and cranked up the cold air...

  • Tuesday I decided to wear long sleeves and a blazer, but the weather decided that spring had not sprung yet and the aircon agreed, blowing warm air...

  • Today I wanted to be smart, temperature definitely rising I expected the aircon to deep freeze the place again and decided for long sleeve and vest. Very fashionable that I looked, I almost sweat myself to death as the aircon went bonkers and was still heating...
I however know for sure that spring has sprung because of the hayfeverish sniffles, and as long as I stay close to the aircon mayhem, I actually feel better. No two ways about it: The year has arrived in April - the month of too much work, confused sunshine, and inapt insects.

That means for me that only two month are left to get ready for the bodybuilding competition. I seem to have sorted the wardrobe questions (tan and bikini), still need to get leaner, and still have to learn how to pose.

Wish me luck, dears!

Another Thursday night

Ok, it’s Thursday again and I remembered to bring the netbook to sewing class, yay! So again I am sitting in my car writing to kill some time until lesson will start. I am still on the toile, so no news there, but I got the DVD from the last photo shoot and the photos are looking good. Turns out that I have to see how to use the dresses, or I even may have to dispose of them… at least on the photos something is not quite right.

The shoulder bits look a bit flimsy now... who would have thought?
And I definitely need a tan for that one

I actually quite like that one - it's the comfiest dress ever, but Bob wasn't convinced either.
He hated the handbag that goes with the shoes, so I tested the green on green - with black or beige shoes maybe?

… and turns out that I still have to learn a lot in regard to posing. It seems to be much easier to model black, as soon as things are getting multicoloured some skill is asked for. Patterns make lines vanish and if arms and body are not properly separated by a gap one looks like a big blob.

Not good! ... and stiff like a log...

... better, but coats tend to pull creases, the jeans are a too dark wash, the shoes are too red, 
and tight jeans don't work in photos if they aren't pulled down straight... Hmmm?!?!

... crop the bottom bit off ... well, it works! I do like the coat!
Dresses are similarly tricky if they are shifting. It looks weird when the dress looks straight while the model is in profile and visa versa. Again: Hmmm?!?!

Oh were to put those darn arms?
Get some posture girl! Straighten your back!

Well, that is why we do those shoots, right? To figure out stuff like this. So here is to what is working: Leather jacket!

Gotta go dears, stichwork is calling for me. Will add a few photos and post tomorrow. Oh my silly computer wants to reboot… I hate it when they do this. So I will just shut it off  and hence up now.

PS: Keep an eye on my PicasaWeb will post the rest of the pics during the weekend
