Left Brain?

So I went to the bookshelf, and what did I find?

Drawing on the Artist Within by Betty Edwards, Author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.

Well I never. The fact that I own this book, and have not done much more with it than flick through the first couple of chapters seems somewhat ironic, although I can't quite put my finger on why, and definitely have nothing to do with the comments in the original story of this group.

At least I'm not an artist and have no aspirations to be one... ;)

That book. Sigh. My art teacher taught us using it, and my friends and I made sarcastic comments about it all year.

Lessons? What lessons? There are lessons in Betty Edwards' books? I thought they were just a series of photos of naughty graffiti-ing neurosurgeons?

*rewinds the tapes*<br />

Hmm, no time stamps. Maybe we can calculate it from how often you bathe ;)

o.o When did those surveillance cameras appear here???

Well, you'll never know if you don't try! Besides, I saw you move the book about just the other day...

Yeah, it's so incredibly fabulous that I'll probably over-do it and end up failing... ;)

Nonsense! Just use your fabulous upper body strength!

It's impossible to do! It's like it has some protective field around it!

Pick up the damn book, Sminders!

Dammit people, what will it take for you (us) to pick up the damn book and follow the instructions? I mean really...<br />
(of course needing a kick in the arse for myself as well)

Maybe the other way?

I think not...

Ouh... now I'm a bit disappointed!

No, not like that.

*ponders what spices to use and how to cook it....*

Maybe they're actually meant to be *eaten*?

The only exception to your idealistic vision would be a book by Betty Edwards as it's well proved in this group, that it's impossible to really read her books! ;)

Just imagine, if we spent as much time reading the books as we did commenting and reading on the stories inspired by the books, I'm sure we'd all be at least past Chapter One! ;)

WOW ... these comments cheer me up ... the books blur my eyes ... LMAO

Yeah, I know, you're not the first one to point it out! :)

You're hopeless!!<br />
<br />
( hopeful!)

There is always hope! With my luck I get so much money from that garage sale and garage that I can use them to stop world hunger and all the wars! Isn't everything simply fantastic? ;)

Pointless! Pointless! <br />
<br />
There is nooooooooo hope!<br />
<br />
Might as well just have a garage sale and even sell the garage!

Tralalaaa... Life is beautiful and wonderful and I want to squeeze everybody that crosses my path.... ;)

<br />
Never amount to more than an elite cross country skier *** gymnast!

Yeah, because that's when the stubborn optimism ( that is so characteristic to the hopeless ) kicks in as anti-reaction! :)

So better to fill up the hopeless with pessimism?

Yeah, it actually makes it worse!

Ironically, giving hope to the hopeless never helps!

I know, I'm hopeless! :)
