Ship of Fools writes:

Today is St Agnes Day, patron saint of chastity. She died a martyr, c.300, at the age of 13, having rejected all suitors. If, young ladies, you stuck a pin in your nightie last night while saying the Lord's Prayer in Latin, and went to bed without any supper, you will have dreamed of the man you are to marry.

And now guess who dreamt of Johnny The Homicidal Maniac (again) last night?!? o_O

Sometimes I wonder what fairy tale characters would look like if they could age.

... and I think I just found Madame Red Riding Hood...

Other things that made me daydream today:

INTERNA

As a celebration of my website's 2nd anniversary this Sunday (... I could hardly believe it either...), I am holding a contest to win one of the art & design books that I'm currently selling. The winner can of course choose which book he/she wants.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is photoshop, animate, pixelize, caricaturize etc. one of my portraits (or the ones over at Flickr).

(Yep, I'm narcisstic like that!).

The winning image will be displayed here on the blog as well as on my website.

Please email me your images until January 31, 2005.

Good luck! :)

Today's special mention goes to Magic Zyks' gorgeous wife, muse and model Aimée who wrote the 100th entry in my guestbook. Congrats!

Oh, and guess who has a spiffy new favicon?! Lala...

And now, let's disco dance! o_O
