(Courtesy of The Fine Art Nude Network -> procrastination that makes me feel cultured.. I obviously don't actually know anything about these photographers... But I know I like the photos. I think there is way too much pressure to know about art. It makes it seem an elite thing.. off-putting... I'm sure more people would go to art galleries if they didn't have to worry about knowing. Knowing is such a frightening concept. "Do you know...?" Ugh. Nothing worse. I hate people who feel like they have to tell you everything they do know like they're doing you a favour. What dicks.Tour-guides and the like; that snooty friend who studied art-history (no, not you, Flora). Knowledge may well enhance appreciation but it should never, never be a requisite.
End of pretentious rant. Thank you for your time.)

Found this amongst my notes from a class last year - real, live stream of consciousness:

I've struggled at length with all of these words in the past week and thought it would be funny to make a list so that I can quantify scientifically how mushy my brain has become as a result of all this time spent with Shakespeare (and co):
- admittedly that looks wrong, but a 'z' would be American and Americans talk funny, and I can't abide a word that only lets one vowel in. Its just not politically correct these days.
- "He implies it" that makes it "implisit." duh.
- because two 'r's and two 'f's are better than one of each
- I can't believe I still get this one wrong: tragic.
- Tragic again
- Probably how Chaucer would have spelt it...
- the emotions experienced by an adult deer/dear/deir
- A name for a Southern American hill-billie, perhaps Heavie-Joe-Bob in full.. or the 8th dwarf who loves heaving things about
- Aliens from Doctor Who-- they are naughty and solemn
- not sure what I was thinking here. Continental pronunciation perhaps?
- Still baffled as to why spell-check says this is wrong
