Post #60: HELP! Writer Needs a New Look!

It all started out innocently: I wanted a photo of me to put on my ‘about’ page. That, and to have a good one at the ready for the news networks (at least one photo without the trifecta of double chins, adult acne and sweat patches) should anything happen to me. And ladies, you know exactly where this is heading…


Post #4: Reality Television

Welcome to the fourth post of the Great Writing Challenge of 2012. Five days a week for six months, I will be given a topic to write about. The stipulation: it must be 250 words (or more), and positive in tone. If you would like to suggest topics for me to write about, please email me at therebeccaproject [at] gmail [dot] com. I must confess: I love Reality TV. Well, most of it. There’s some that I will never like (read: Jersey Shore), and some that is just lame (anything to do with tattoos/towing cars/hunting for antiques). But there are some shows that I absolutely love. Well, enough to set a series recording on my DVR. One of my favorite shows is Project Runway. I seriously love that show, and it’s because these people have talent. They can construct an entire outfit, sometimes two, in a day. Having taken about a week solid to construct a sack dress recently, I could not be more impressed. The show does not reward mediocrity.

We were happy being ostriches about a certain reality TV show, but apparently, you need to at least know who the characters in Jersey Shore are in order to answer questions. So we watched some. It. Was. The. Most. Horrendous. Show. I. Have. Ever. Seen. And I agree with this sentiment completely: [Source: Abby Sharp via The Daily Dawdle] It’s sad. I can never get those minutes back…

Currently obsessed with: Land Carpets

Loving these ‘Land Carpets‘ (otherwise known as rugs), that are inspired by satellite images of various landscapes.  I adore flying over places such as New Zealand and Ireland, as they offer such breathtaking patterns and colours below of the of fields and farms and homes, and Florian Pucher has brought the joy of flying over far-off destinations right to your living room floor. They’re made from New Zealand wool, with each design being handtufted and limited to 88 pieces.  If I had between $1200 (for the USA, Africa and Europe versions) and $2100 (for the Netherlands), I’d already have it underfoot.  Nevertheless, LOVE!
