I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail recently (again) and this is one of several lines that I thought might make a journal page.

I'm not sure that I'm entirely happy with it, but as a piece of silliness to pass a little time it's not come out to badly.

For those who don't know the film, here's the clip referred to...

The mouse's tail

My entry for the latest Altered Alice challenge where the theme is text as background. It would have been my entry for the TOFF 'stripes' challenge, but I couldn't get it posted in time.

The inspiration is from The Mouse's Tale in Alice in Wonderland. The background text is nonsensical Latin from a Lorem Ipsum generator, but threaded through it is the mouse's tale.

Tomato inequality

Whilst it may be written in to the US constitution that "All men are created equal", it seems that the humble tomato doesn't have the same privilege!

This idea started back in June, when I was at Sarah's Altered box workshop. I was covering my box with scraps of paper from an old Italian road map, and pages from a 'Make your own pizza' book, when I spotted the quote "all canned tomatoes are not created equal".

Now, you just have to keep hold of a quote like that, so it's been on my pinboard ever since, and was joined by a page from "The bowler hatted cowboy" that somebody dug up at another workshop, which also features several references to tomatoes.

You may never look at tomatoes in the same way again ;)
