FridayQ: Decorated

FQ1: How have you decorated the walls of your living space (photos, posters, works of art, etc.)?

Since I have some delightful floral grey and pink wallpaper, I have tried to cover it with various posters, including posters of Scooby Doo, Arwen from Lord of the Rings, and a guide to being environmentally friendly which came with an issue of New Internationalist. There’s also a lot of junk in the room which hides the wallpaper quite well.

FQ2: How have you decorated your body, both intentionally (piercings, tattoos, etc.) and unintentionally (wounds, scars, etc.)?

I actually don’t have any tattoos or piercings, nor have I dyed my hair. I do have the odd scar, including a small one on my face from when I had chicken pox some 15-odd years ago.

FQ3: How have you decorated your computer’s “desktop”? Post a snapshot if you want.

The image is from the rather quaint Cows of the Universe, found via Daisy. Normally I have fewer icons on my desktop but there’s a few things that I need to refer to a lot at the moment.

FQ PROJECT: Decorate your blog today! Create some art with an online Etch-a-Sketch (like the one here) and post a snapshot of your efforts (or, if you’re not an Etch-a-Sketch fan, draw us a picture using whatever you want).

How about this lovely picture I drew?

Long live MS Paint.


  1. Neil,
    Could you do me a favour mate? The cowsoftheuniverse site appears to be down so would you mind emailing me a copy of that cow wallpaper. It rocks.

  2. FridayQ for July 23rd

    Totally forgot about doing the FridayQ until I saw Neil’s answers. So here we go:

  3. That IS a nice picture! I’ve tried a couple of times to draw on the Etch-a-Sketch, but haven’t had much success yet (where’s the undo key?!?). I’m getting better, so hopefully when I post my answers later tonight I’ll have a winning drawing like yours.

  4. HairyPenis? Oh dear!
