May sound stupid but I have never in my whole life bought avocados, these guys are my very first:) Reason is: in Hungary they are not so common and absolutely not cheap so everybody has to survive without them. But tonight I'm making guacamole for the tortilla chips after we consumed a big amount of enchilladas! Hasta luego!


Clouds, mist and rain

Lately the weather has been quite suicidal (see pic) so it's time for some negative thoughts:

"...So I try to avoid any eye contact
Cause if I do that then it opens a door to conversation
Like I want that..."
Eminem - Beautiful

No, don't say hi, I don't even know you, I'm not interested in you and I don't want to hear your stupid remarks about the weather. Period.



It would have been a perfect autumn day yesterday if it wasn't actually August.

But I was thinking. You are so close to nature here in Gouda. So different from in Hungary. You go out the door and you're immidiately surrounded by trees and birds, you can feed the ducks and all that. Here for example a picture of a Grey Herron in the middle of the city, in Park Atlantis (you can spot these birds all the time near the huge amount of lakes and channels around the negihbourhood):

Isn't this cool?


WTJ - Page for negative comments

Using some of the bumper stickers I found I could create the perfect page for my inner critic :)

And here is the other side of the very first page I've done (doodling never stops):


Bumper stickers

Today (while pretending to work) I was browsing bumper stickers. Sooo funny :D Here I post some (not in an alphabetical or chronological order for D's sake):

This one is my favourite:

This one goes for my D:

And this one would be the perfect banner for my blog:


WTJ - Trace your hand

Finally at least I'm completely done with a page and I'm happy with the outcome. It took me a couple of days, but it succeeded! Here it is:

And this is a little package for my boss, who is leaving for Switzerland:

It contains typical Hungarian candies: dunakavics (Duna pebbles) and francia drazsé (French dragee). I printed a cute candy shaped gift-tag for it.


Those magical 40's

A couple of days ago a new sensation hit me after watching some movies about the 40's and 50's: I love those cars!!! Yes, I mean those huge, whale-like monsters. They amaze me in a way a BMW or Yamaha bike can never do.

Here they are:

1939 Dodge D11 Luxury Liner

1940 Cadillac Model 7523
1940 Lincoln Zephyr Continental Cabriolet

1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe

1941 Buick Roadmaster Convertible

1941 Cadillac 62 Convertible

1942 DeSoto Deluxe Club Coupe

1946 Lincoln Club Coupe

1947 Ford Super Deluxe Sedan Coupe

1947 Mercury Town Sedan

1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper Club Sedan

1948 Chevrolet Fleetline

1948 Plymouth Convertible

1948 Pontiac Silverstreak

1950 Studebaker Commander

And during browsing for the car pics I also found some black-and-white postcards and photos from that era in America, they are just amazing!
Detroit 1951

San Francisco


I saw a beautiful rainbow in the morning. I was waiting at the station and suddenly it started raining hard on the left side and on the right the sun was still shining. The rainbow appeared somewhere above our house (I hope it means that there is treasure buried somewhere there :). Thus my day started good so let's keep it like this for another 10 hours!


WTJ - Peace

I just got an enormous hint this weekend how to do the 'trace your hand' page. I saw a guy on MTV who had a shirt with a hand forming the peace sign. So thats it :) I always liked hippies and the whole flower power era anyways :)


Wreck This Journal - A little from everything

Well, I have the feeling I'm not like one of those artists/bloggers who start a page in the journal and work on it until it's finished. I'm more like "a little drawing here, another sticker there" kind of person. I added some pagenumbers, in the order of my progression with the pages. So it's gonna be chaotic :)
