A list

Some of my favourite things are teapots, books, ravens, washing lines, fountain pens, sunflowers and the moon. I don't know why.

Anne only has white or blue things in her apartment. All her clothes are also either white or blue. Everything in her kitchen is white or blue. Her carpet is blue, her sofa is blue, her bed linen is white and blue, even the paintings on the white walls are only white and blue. Her bathroom is all white with a blue toilet seat and a blue toothbrush. She has no plants in the house. Her eyes are the bluest blue you have ever seen.

Whatever the weather, she rides around Berlin on an old blue bicycle.

In her summer holidays she travels to a Greek island and stays in a white house with blue windows and blue doors and looks at the blue sea. The Greek flag is blue and white.

A friend once gave her a green salad bowl and salad servers for Christmas, and she just couldn't believe it. How could this friend not have noticed? She gave the present to her grandmother the very next day because she didn't want green things in her apartment.

Slightly overwhelmed

I am madly working on my 2009 calendar, which is supposed to be on sale tomorrow, and is as yet nowhere near ready. Feeling slightly overwhelmed. I drew the picture below a while ago, but today I really feel like that mouse. 8 Dec 08 - Calendar ready. See Duck Books site

At the Airport

At the airport, my dreams collide with my mundane existence, and it hurts.

Elaine de Gant

A long time ago, back in 1983, Elaine de Gant wrote an absurd weekly column for Honi Soit, the University of Sydney student newspaper.

She still writes today.
