It’s Day 18 of the Inktober Challenge. Today’s prompt is “scrape.” Another word with a multitude of ways that it could be represented. To be honest, I was thinking about just scrapping today’s word after streaming Episode 9 of the House and Dragons last night and just shouting “DRACARYS!!! DRACARYS!!!” on paper as my reaction to that episode. We were a day behind because my husband was simultaneously watching the Eagles kick Dallas outta Philly, and the Yankees hanging on to win to stay in the playoffs, on Sunday. A lot of sports going on around here.
The one thing nice about football is that it keeps my husband busy so I can work in my studio without being interrupted. The Yankees and Phillies being in the playoffs are just icing on the cake at this point. GO PHILS!
Getting back to scrape, for some reason a scrape across the blackboard was my inspiration today. I thought of scraped knees or scraping pans, walls etc but for some reason that God awful scraping of chalk on a blackboard seemed to be a good and obnoxious way to represent “scrape.” Maybe I can “dracarys” that teacher tomorrow for screeching the chalk.
So we are obviously Team Targaryen in our house. So at this point you probably know who we wanted burned. We were Team Stark in the original Game of Thrones. We used to have a Game of Thrones Iron Throne that I made for my husband’s birthday 5 years ago but we sold the house where it was and we left it there by accident. Oh well. I can make another one. Anyway, I don’t care who’s playing this coming Sunday, we’re watching the Season Finale.
We are still pissed about the whole Jon Snow thing being left high and dry. That’s what happens when you don’t finish writing your book series and you leave it up to two TV writers to finish it for you.
