A friend sent me this.
Under the heading: What To Do When You Are Really, Really Bored.
1. Kill a few house flies.
2. Put them in the sun to dry for an hour or so.
3. When dry, find pencil and paper...
More examples of domestic gross-art followed.
My reaction switched back and forth between a kind of eeeuuu distaste and fits of semi-perverted fascination at the idea of musca domestica as a creative art-form-antidote to ennui.
I couldn't help imagining other possible illustrations. I just couldn't.
My friend is twisted.
I am twisted. Swat me.
My daughter just sent me a copy edit of a WIP. She caught about 25 typos all told -- articles evaded, plurals absent, punctuation (such as commas , periods and close quotes) missing. I realized that most of these occurred when cut-and-pasting. Something to watch for.
