Minotaurs.... [Oct. 27th, 2005|10:58 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm painting away on my Minotaur painting.....

You can peek in on me HERE on my webcam....

It's coming along pretty darned cool - it's a minotaur warrior and his girlfriend, lol.

I've got so much work to do, ugh.

But hey, at least a lot of my work involves painting pictures, and I really love to do that =)

I was wondering... does Lwaxana Troi (Deanna's mom from Star Trek TNG) remind anybody else of Endora (Samantha's mom from the old show Bewitched)? Am I the only one who sees this?

D'you know...I hadn't really thought of it before - I always thought Lwaxana reminded me of someone, but now that you mention it, it's Endora she reminds me of! Maybe not quite as mean-spirited, but definately as catty!

Looks, obviously, no. Attitude and personality? Most definetly.

Ahh, ive been wondering how to spell her name, i kept thinking her name was Loxana. She's certainly pushy like Endora, just not as mean.

I also notice that she calls Worf "Woof" to make him mad... kind of like a Darren/Derwood thing....

LOL - wouldn't want to meet him!

Usually about a day, I try to finish them all in one sitting =) Sometimes with really really big paintings though it will take more like 2 or 3 days.

Re: hi

Hey there!

Did you place the order via my website? If so, the email address you used while placing the order is the email address that the shipping confirmation email would have been sent to with the shipping date info =) (Just look for the email from JasmineToad@aol.com). If you placed it using a family member or friend's email address, you may want to check with them to see when they received the confirmation.

At any rate, all orders placed before October 12th have been shipped! Surface Mail takes approximately 4-6 weeks for arrival, so you probably have a couple of weeks to go. Most people in the UK have not received theirs yet (only a few people so far).

I can't wait to see it-I tried getting your webcam to work on my browser, but it ran laughing hysterically into the night:)

And you are right, Lwaxana does bare a passing resemblance, but wasn't anywhere near as scary as Endora, who used to give me nightmares when I was a child.

I'm almost frightened to go to bed, just in case I have a sex nightmare with her in it, to finish me off
*shudders.

Now that you mention it, you're right about Lwaxana Troi. I wanted to be her for Halloween, but could figure out how to pull that off since she doesn't really have a specific costume or remarkable features. There would be a limited amount of times I would want to repeat that I was "Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed." :)

Lol - that would be a fantastic costume!

Oooooh - you could dress like she planned to for her Betazoid Wedding Ceremony... ;P

Hmmm...Majel Barrett also played Nurse Christine Chapel in the old Star Trek. And not that Agnes Moorehead and Majel Barrett look alike but they both do have those very hard angular features.

That's so weird! Yep, I looked her up - I had no idea that she was Gene Roddenberry's wife. Or that she played Lumpy's mom on Leave It To Beaver, lol.
