Jan just gave me a Wedgie!

This is a picture I made last February. It was based on a photo I took at Elvaston Castle in Derby. I dropped a pebble into the lake and this is the reflection of an Ash tree..if you can't make it out, then try standing on your head. (Readers in Australia might like to ignor the last bit of advice!)

I arrived at school today to be greeted by a class of year one children calling my name and saying.."You were Santa!"...I of course denied that it was really I that handed out the presents at the school party dressed as Santa.

I had to get to the store room to pick up some water colour paper..Through the door I could hear the children discussing me..."it was him that was Santa!"..."No it wasn't..Santa's fat!"..."it was Niall wearing a fat coat!".....

I guess you could say I was well and truly rumbled!

Tonight, Jan has to study for a part she is playing at a murder mystery party tommorow night...it's based on a famous BBC TV comedy series here in UK called 'Allo Allo' about the French Resistance during World War Two. So I happen to have the first few series on DVD..as I bent down to put a disc into the machine....she gave me a wedgie!!!! For a moment I WAS Homer Simpson!

Need less to say..revenge will be mine...Mwoah ha ha ha ha!

Totally denied. It was not I your honour. All in his imagination... I'm far too busy being aesthetic and ethereal for such base behaviour.
Back to Margaret Atwood for me.....

:-) Potato wedges,lovingly called 'wedgies' are the only kind that I know of! Ha ha ha.

I'd seen this picture on your site, but hadnt understood it.I just thought it was an abstract work.Now that you explained it, it makes sense.It is beautiful and a very unusual idea(reflection caused by ripples)

I love that picture! It reminds me of one I have - it's a photograph of a rock quarry after it had rained. You just see all the colors of the trees (at autumn) reflected in the pool of water in between rocks.
