Oh bloody meh

Just finished talking to my friend Tom. He is my oldest male friend, we realised today we have known each other for 18 years - but bloody hell is my German rusty, my ears hurt from all the struggling and interjecting English words everywhere, stupid language, REALLY. Anyway, sent him new pics of me, the ones he had were terribly old and then it occurred to me that he took one of the few pictures of me that I really like, I am wearing blinking horns I'd bought at some Fest and then it also occurred to me, what better way to not think abt the exam tomorrow than trying my hand at this photothinging thingy? The programme doesn't allow me to do much though I threw in loads of effects, not that you can actually notice any, but the truth is I suck rock at this. Maybe I'll be a vet after all.

Although... Soft Tissue Surgery exam tomorrow and all I've managed to learn in the past few days was this: once we cut them open in ways I couldn't possibly tell you bcs I remember none we'd better close them up again using all sorts of different sutures - don't ask me - and still sometimes they die, though there are some that recover even though they'll forever be incontinent and that's a bother for those owners who live in flats.

Off to bed with a book and a rugby team, tomorrow off to the beach and some cousinly love, she'll be there for the day and it will take loads of true Portie mimo [cossetting] to help me recover from what WILL be evaluation trauma.

----------------------------------
YEY! Have just reserved the new Harry Potter! The problem of buying it at that memory-haunted bookshop sorted itself out bcs this year they won't have it at all but I won't have to go to the huge bookshop that will be filled to capacity with fans either, there's another bookshop in the same mall that's very low profile and they'll have it! I'll stake my ground at 23.30 so I'll be first (First! First!), it's been 2 long years, and wait impatiently till 00.01 and then fly home, dive into it and bawl - for there will be bawling. Expect live blogging like last time but, again, no spoilers. ENVY ME YET? Something truly lovely to look forward to!

Is that tube top? A real LIVE tube top on that lovely lady?

Snicker...

Lord Chimmy said...

My old boss once said I sutured like a mortician.

I'm A LOT better now though...

What photothingy photo-editing program are you using? I've been learning quite a few tricks lately. Of course, I have a whole lot of time to waste...

Manuela said...

Yowza,yowza...

I actually had to call Attila over here to CHECK. YOU. OUT.

(wolf whistle)

Girlfriend... that is one SEXY fucking photo.

Period.

Milk Woman said...

Yes, dear Posters. We do have a hell of a sexy lady here, though she refuses to admit and always tries to hide herself under baggy clothing. I've witnessed some enlightened days on which she did actually spent some more time in front of me mirror!
Anyway, as I know my arse will be kicked after this infamous post (guess who'll do it!), I just wanted to drop a line for my good friend Lioness, to tell her that I hope that all your coments will also help her recovering from the evaluation trauma!

Ps - I had never seen you in a Tube Top. It looks great on you!

Lioness said...

Aurelia, is that like a veiled insult? An Anglo faux-pas, the wearing of tube tops? I love them for the beach, all you have to do is fold them up once and voilá, instant bikini top.

Chimmy, I suck at it, and never really had the chance to even practise my hand. I used SnagIt Editor, it's all I have. Meh.

Tnx dahling, glad you and Gizzie like it! It's not a new one though, am sure you'd seen it bfr. So maybe all my special effects did work??

YOU, Baggy clothing?! That's bloody insulting, I do NOT wear baggy clothing for fuck's sake, never have! You're thinking of your other friend, I fear. I actually do not own a single baggy item, I can't stand how it looks. You like the tube tops? Cool! I've bought some more. And books as well. HAVE YOU FINISHED TAHT ONE YET? Am waiting.

CarpeDM said...

My goodness, you are lovely.

I am thinking good thoughts for you about the exam.

Lioness said...

Dana, don't waste them, it was a thing of cataclysmic proportions.

Ed said...

I think you should give a warning before posting a photo like that.

Such sexiness doesn't do the blood pressure any good. ;)
(Or, then again, maybe it does.)

Manuela said...

You, as I've mentioned before, have specatcularly shaped bosoms! I can say that cuz I'm a girl and she can't smack me all the way over here in Canada. The tube top serves you VERRRRRY well. Very well indeed.

As for Harry Potter... Gizzard and I are buying two copies and plan on holing ourselves in seclusion until we've read the whole thing. We plan on having pee and conversation breaks at the end of every chapter to discuss plot developments.

Can hardly WAIT!

i just saw the new movie yesterday. i thought it was the best one yet. they are getting to be better actors.

Lord Chimmy said...

For photo-editing you might want to try Gimp. It is an open source "copy" of Photoshop. There are a lot of tutorials and scripts that allow you to fully automate photo-manipulation. It is a pretty cool (and totally free) program. The more I use it the more I love it.

Nancy said...

You are indeed a lovely lady, as well as smart, brilliant and witty.

:o)

Lioness said...

Ed, this is a pic I'd posted bfr, your problem is a very short long-term memory apparently. As it were.

Manuela, two books, ahh, excellent notion! That way no divorce follows.

d.x., hi,! Long time! I want to see the film as well but that can wait. The book is a whole different thing!

Chimmy, how could I resist a programme called Gimp. Tnx for the tip. As for the self-induced baldness, well, next time listen to your hepatocytes.

Nancy, I beg your pardon?? "Intelligent", not smart. Please.

Diana said...

Since mine is supposed to be coming in the mail, you'll get yours, like, 24 hours ahead of me, counting the tmime difference and assuming the post is on time, at about 2pm.

I shall be haunting my mailbox, though.

I SHAN'T haunt your blog. Made me want to chew my arms off last year, reading your !gasps! and !Oofs!

Lioness said...

Coward.

Aurelia said...

Oh bloody heck, I screwed up the joke. Tube tops are in fashion again and yes, totally convenient, it's just one of those things that keeps being mentioned on various websites by women as ancient as me, because I remember actually wearing one the first time they were around.

Of course, my boobs looked perky then, like yours do now, as opposed to my saggy things these days.

I was not insulting you, veiled or otherwise, I swear, truly.

Lioness said...

No, no, you didn't, I got it, I was joking abt it as well. I too remember them from the movies in the 80's. Hard to joke through this medium at times, I truly was NOT offended at all, I knew what you meant.
