Can I Quote You on That?

I have been sitting in front of the computer for ages doing anything but what I originally sat down to do,  which is to write a post for IBOT.

I have posts in my drafts folder that I could have worked on and used, but I just wasn't feeling them, you know? I've got other ideas for blog posts scribbled in my notebook and listed in notes on my iPhone, but they need more fleshing out than my brain will allow. 

So instead of writing a bloody blog post I've been reading other blogs, watching twitter, faffing about on facebook, playing with photos. You know, the usual.

I thought I might just write a post about anything and everything but I've already done that. Then I thought I could write a post about how much I fucking hate cockroaches. But then I remembered I've already done that too. 

So I thought and I thought and eventually my brain exploded from overheating and now you have the ghost of Kylez sitting here typing away and there is gonna be one pissed off husband getting home from work in the morning to find not only does he have to clean the bathroom from now on but he has to clean his wife's brains off the floor too. Oh well, it seriously needs a wash, this floor. I don't want to think about how long it's been!

And while trying to remember the last time I washed the floor it came to me (as these things often do when I contemplate any kind of housework, something more interesting always comes along and oh shit,  I've run out of time to do the housework, sorry Dave). I'll write a blog post about quotes. Yes I've blogged quotes before, but this time it's different. This time I've invented a word!

Ever since I could read and write I have been obsessed with quotes and have been collecting them in a notepad for years. Inspiring quotes. Funny quotes. Serious quotes. Quotes from books and films (the more I say the word 'quotes' in my head the odder it sounds). Quotes about love and hate, life and death, bongs and blowjobs.

As many of you know, I take a ridiculous amount of photos. More photos than I know what to do with. I have always though that some of my photos would lend themselves quite well to some sweet quotes though. You know, the type you see shared on facebook or pinterest or anywhere for that matter. 

I see them everywhere, all over the interwebs and I says to myself, I says "Kylie. You have all of these photos and you do nothing with them. Why not make you own 'quiptures'?" So I did. (Do you see what I did there? Quotes. Pictures. Quiptures! Oh yeah baby, it's almost midnight and I am inventing words. Word)

So without further ado, I present to you some of my favourite quotes, combined with some of my favourite pictures.

My Quiptures.






Ya like Kel? Do, ya, do ya?
Aren't they grand! Feel free to pin the shit out of these babies, I got plenty more where they came from. I know you're all dying to know what these quotes about bongs and blowjobs are but to keep your suspense high, and to build the sexual tension, you'll have to wait for another blog post for those. Don't ask me what kind of picture I'm going to use for those quotes though, now is not the time to be thinking of these things or I'll take some photos I regret. Or something.

So there it is bitches my lovelies. My Quiptures. What ya think? Do you have a fave quote you'd like to see me turn in to a totally awesome Quipture? Lay it on me in the comments. And please don't ask me why I'm talking (typing) like a try-hard gangster yo, I can't explain it but it's not unusual. Just ask Kelly HTandT. She has facebook inbox message evidence. Which she will probably use to blackmail me with and make some extra cash coz she is The Budget Queen and she knows how to make the money!

And don't forget that this post is linked up with the raddest of rad rad girls, Jess, coz she hosts the dope IBOT linky which you should totally go check out now! After you leave me a comment of course!

  1. They're great Kylie. I've been doing some of my own too, as they quotes are a nice thing to share on facebook. I'm glad your head didn't really explode.

    1. I think Dave is glad I didn't really explode either! Hehe. Now that I've started all I want to do is come up with more of them, I think I'm becoming a little obsessed!

    1. The Hawkesbury really does get some spectacular sunsets, one thing I miss the most now that I have a baby is not being able to just jump in the car and go take pics of a gorgeous sunset.

  4. I have been meaning to do the same to some of my photos but I hadn't been able to think of the term for it like you so it is still on my to do list. Actually I never thought of using other people's quotes I was hoping I would be able to use my own words of wisdom which is clearly the reason I am still yet to get it done! You certainly have a gift for photography those photos are awesome

    1. If I had words of wisdom I would use my own but sadly my words are not cool and wisdomful enough to use! Plus I needed to justify keeping the notebooks full of quotes to Dave somehow!

  7. LOVE the bridge quote! And do you know, sounds like we've had the same kind of morning. I have over 1500 pics from our NZ holiday to sort/edit/share in various places. Managed to get an IBOT post in there - and glad I did too as it's Jess's last one! But I've been sitting in front of the computer for 3 hours and don't feel terribly accomplished!

    1. I feel like that nearly every time I sit in front of the computer. Spend hours there but rarely get anything constructive done. Not to mention the time I spend on the ipad also!

  9. Oh, that photo of Kel is hilarious! That one's going viral! :)
    Seriously though, I love them! Especially the second one of clouds. And I reckon that Ferris Bueller quote is one of my all time favourites.

    1. Yep, the Ferris Bueller one is a classic, I just love that movie so much! The pic of Kel was certainly the only one I could have used for that quote.

  13. Gold! Love the quotes, love the pics, and you know I'm down with that gangsta shit. If I had any interest in pinning I would totes pin the shit out of this!

    1. Dude, you would love pinning but it would be the end of your life as you know it. If I were you I would hold off on joining until you are on maternity leave again, you can't waste the last few weeks you have at home on pinning, and believe me, you would go nuts on it!

  14. I'm rather envious of your Quiptures - your photos are fab! How did you add the quotes to them? Not having a scrap of creativity in my body, I have no idea about this stuff... Looking forward to seeing more.

    1. Hey Kirsty, I use an online photo editing website called PicMonkey (www.picmonkey.com). It is seriously the easiest thing to use, you should totally try it out

  15. Awesome quiptures! And did you take those pics yourself? They are awesome.
    I love the bridge one. :)

    1. Thanks Jess! I did take the pics, I have spent many hours of my life roaming the Hawkesbury (and a few other places) and taking shitloads of photos!

  16. Ha ha - love it and love your quiptures - what a cool word.

    1. Thank you my dear, I think it's a pretty good word too! :)

  17. Can't wait to see the word quiptures appear in the Macquarie Dictionary next year! Love the photos too. I grew up in the Hawkesbury but don't remember such beauty!

    1. I am hoping that if I use it enough there will be cause for it's inclusion. Everyone needs to help me spread the word. Literally! Lol!

      I love the Hawkesbury, there are some beautiful places, most of my pics are taken around Yarramundi and the lower lying areas like Cornwallis, I find that's the best spot for sunsets.

  18. Nice one beatch! I'm a fan of most things Mr Bueller says as well flying high and Monty Python

    1. Oh man, I love flying high and Monty Python too! My Mum and Dad introduced me to them when I was young and I was hooked. Of them all though, I think my fave Monty Python quote is "He is not the messiah, he's a naughty little boy!" My sisters and I say this to each other all the time, and especially to our brother. I am now gonna have to make some Python Quiptures!

  20. These are aswesome. I love love love that Ferris Bueller quote - I think about it often, and think that film is genius. I'll be pinning, don't you worry about that.

  21. Love the photo's Kylie, crossing the bridge quote. So darn true and so limiting. Much prefer "Build the bridge and get over it" as said by Hannah Montana and worn out by my teens. Welcome aboard 'BAM'.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Quiptures is a little too biblical for me but I get it.

    I'm quite fond of "suck it up princess" as my mantra. Works a treat!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very cool word. It will be in our kids spelling lists in no time at all.
