Lost in the head-universe

escaping reality

Shimmer by Fuel came up on my Spotify playlist:


These lyrics stuck out as something I figured JJ probably constantly thinks about me:

She dreams a champagne dream
Strawberry surprise
Pink linen on white paper
Lavender and cream
Fields of butterflies
Reality escapes her

- Fuel: Shimmer

He wasn't familiar with the song but when I showed him the lyrics he snickered and agreed.

Yeh, I can be a bit of an airheaded idealistic optimist when I'm not thinking I'm the biggest failwhale in the universe.  Honestly I don't know why he puts up with me, he could do a lot better.

Then I had to sketch, and I need to practice romantic couples anyway, and the last selfie I've done was depressing, so I felt the need to do something a little more cheerful, so everything worked out nicely.

The initial ideas that I had were a bit more on the whimsical side including sitting in a field of lavender with butterflies but I didn't feel up to that level of sap yet, so I went with something a lot more "normal".  When I'm seriously involved with my computer, JJ will often come up to see what I'm doing and then drop many hugs on me.  If I had a tablet that was comfortable (I hate drawing on the sp4 and the Android apps that are on my CCH are really, really slow and laggy, and then Wacom seem to have stopped supporting it x_x hoping that the MobileStudioPro or whatever comes next by the time I'm able to afford something similar aren't so much of a letdown in that department, the CCH is great when it's a 13HD) I probably would cuddle up thusly with JJ on the couch while he's watching tv.
