Wreck This Journal – Day 22 – This Page Is a Sign – What Do You Want It To Say?

Mar 19 2014

wreck-this-journal-sign

There was only one possible thing for a sign to say today.

wreck-this-journal-selfies

 

If, however, you have been moved by all these attention-seeking selfiers (is that a word? Probably not. Ho hum) who probably got so lost in the ‘OMG, LOOK AT ME, I’M SO BRAVE FOR POSTING A PIC OF ME WITHOUT ANY MAKE UP ON’ ‘DON’T BE SILLY, HUN, YOU’RE GAWJUS’ stuff, they forgot to donate, and want to donate to charity yourself, you can choose a charity that doesn’t test on animals from this list.

I’m an over-40 female. It’s my prerogative to be grumpy.

Wreck This Journal – Day 21 – Collect Dead Bugs Here

Mar 18 2014

wreck-this-journal-collect-dead-bugs

My friend Claire and I used to collect woodlice and take them to the pub. That was a couple (okay, about twenty-five) of years ago though and my bug collecting days are over. Plus it says dead bugs and although I think my house in London has approximately two-hundred-and-thirty-million dead wasps in the attic, I’m not about to make a 120 mile round trip to get them and I’m not about to go into the garden and start squishing things, either.

So I drew some happy spiders instead. I think they’re happy anyway. They could be crying inside, I suppose but let’s pretend they’re happy.

A couple have only seven legs, to give it some realism. Convincing, huh?

Wreck This Journal–Day 20 – sdrawkcaB etirW

Mar 17 2014

wreck-this-journal-write-backwards

I got very bored very quickly writing backwards, so I decided to just write words where the letters looked the same backwards as the right way up but I could only think of w, o, I and l (and ‘n’ if you cheat and leave off the spiky bit), and writing ‘wool’ once was enough excitement for one day.

Wreck This Journal – Day 19 – Take This Book In The Shower With You

Mar 16 2014

wreck-this-journal-take-into-shower

You’ll have to excuse the splodge from the apple and chocolate parcel – I used the book as a saucer. I don’t usually put pastry based products on my books, honest.

wreck-this-journal-shower

It doesn’t actually say the shower has to be on, plus it had a paddle in the sea a week ago and I’m not sure it’d take another soaking.

Wreck This Journal – Day 18 – Pick Up The Journal Without Using Your Hands

Mar 15 2014

I said to Shaun, ‘you’ll have to take a photo of me doing it’, but he said as I’m not using my hands, I can take my own photo.

wreck-this-journal-pick-up-the-journal-without-using-your-hands

 

So, I picked up the journal with my feet and took a photo.

Do you like my slippers? £4.99 from Tesco. Bargain.

Wreck This Journal – Day 17 – Glue In A Photo Of Yourself You Dislike And Deface

Mar 14 2014

It didn’t take long to decide which photo to use. I didn’t even have to think about it.

london-duathlon

Although, I don’t actually dislike it, as it sums up perfectly how I felt during the London Duathlon last year. I was cold, wet, bored, fed up and thoroughly pissed off. But as potential photos to post on a dating site go, this probably wouldn’t be one of them. Would you take this girl home to meet your mum?

So, I printed off the photo and stuck it in the book.

And gave myself a smiley face instead of my i’m-really-pissed-off-can-we-go-to-the-pub-now-please face.

Wreck This Journal – Day 16 – This Book Belongs To

Mar 13 2014

The page chosen today instructed me to write my name in different ways. I managed to mess this up and write on the wrong line, so I added arrows to indicate which line it was supposed to be on. Duh.

wreck-this-journal-name

 

I got to play with MS Paint though and scrub out my address and phone no. Good old MS Paint. Not the most exciting page, I must admit. Helen had to sell the page she chose today, which I was quite jealous of, as I’d seen that on a flick through and decided when it came to it, I’d put it on eBay, but she’s beaten me to it. Stole my photo and all. Shocking behaviour, I might unfriend her on Facebook. That’ll teach her.

If you’d like to buy Helen’s page though, it’s here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wreck-This-Journal-Page-/301123045580? and all the money will go to charity and there’s even free postage. She is a good person.

Wreck This Journal – Day 15 – Draw Lines While In Motion On the Bus, On A Train, While Walking

Mar 12 2014

wreck-this-journal-draw-lines-while-in-motion-plain

The only outside activity I’m going to be doing today is going to the spin class at the local gym, which I can walk to. I briefly thought about doing today’s journal activity in the class but soon remembered I’m not a complete weirdo, so I wrote in the journal while walking round the house.

wreck-this-journal-draw-lines-while-in-motion

My handwriting isn’t much worse while writing on the move than it is when I’m stationary, really. And I used to have such nice handwriting, too.

If you really want to know what it says, it’s:

lines are a bit boring so I’m going to write stuff while I walk round the house instead although I’m not really sure what to write but writing and words are just lines on a page anyway, aren’t they? My hand is starting to ache a bit now so I think I’m going to stop walking and writing and go and make my lunch. bye bye Smile

Deep, man.

Wreck This Journal – Day 14 – Collect The Letter W

Mar 11 2014

wreck-this-journal-collect-the-letter-w

When I’d seen this page on flicking through the book, I’d been looking forward to collecting the letter W, but I’m supposed to be thinking up an idea for a screenplay, so I only had time for a quick flick through an old copy of The Metro to look for Ws.

As it’s the two week anniversary of journal wrecking, here’s a pic of it so far. Yep, pretty wrecked.

Wreck This Journal – Day 13 – Document Your Dinner

Mar 10 2014

I’ve got to say, I wasn’t keen on this one. As I am no longer three years old, I can manage – on a good day, at least – to get my food in my mouth and not smear it all over the place.

wreck-this-journal-document-your-dinner

 

You’re going to have to pretend I’m northern, as it was my lunch I smeared over the page, not my dinner.

wreck-this-journal-lunch

My lunch consisted of hummus, stuffed vine leaves, tomato couscous, artichokes and falafel.

wreck-this-journal-dinner-documented

I wasn’t happy about wasting hummus, I can tell you.
