Do you doodle? Come on, no smart alec/rude answers please, you all know what doodling means.
I only doodle when I’m on the telephone, waiting for a call to be answered. I usually have a name or some notes written down about the call and I tend to enclose the names in boxes then put perspective on them, I also do repeated lines, patterns and geometric shapes, which according to a site I found which analyses doodles, means:
Doodles of Boxes and Perspective Forms: Perspective drawing is quite an advanced stage in artistic development, and is a very satisfying creative outlet – simple 3-D boxes often hark back to our last experience of artistic training (technical drawing in highschool).
Internal: 3-D boxes indicate an ordered mind and love of routine. Often drawn by people with a good sense of spatial relationships. A stack of balanced boxes might indicate great stress - especially if the stack is at risk of toppling!
Repeated Lines and Patterns: Repetition is a common feature of doodles that suggests a methodical, patient approach to tasks. Repetition also increases the significance of a particular motif.
Geometric Shapes: Regular patterns from geometric shapes tend to indicate an organised and efficient mind. Triangles are a geometrically stable shape but also suggest direction and sense of purpose. The triangle has been adopted into various symbol systems, for example, a pink (usually inverted) triangle represents gay pride.
The Circle: The circle appears in every culture as an archetypal form representative of the eternal whole. With no ending or beginning, it revolves in an eternal cycle and is linked to the sun-disk and the attendant concepts of the yearly cycle, the moon, and the wheel. In some symbol systems it also represents the universe.
The Square: The square represents the formal, mathematical, scientific order of the universe. The square represents earthbound matter, and correspondingly, with its two sides delineating a two-dimensional surface, may symbolize the earth or ground, or a field, especially in eastern pictograms. In Buddhist symbolism the relationship the square within the circle represents the relationship of the human and the divine.
So it would seem that I have an ordered, efficient mind and a love of routine – I’d agree with that!

Barb (Skittles Place) kindly passed this award on to me
Thank you Barb, I'll do my best to spread the love. She didn't mention any rules about passing it on but she passed it on to three bloggers so I'll do the same. Will the first three to comment on this post please take the "Spread the Love Award" and pass it on.
Also I received another one of these from Dumdad (The Other Side Of Paris)
How kind, especially from someone who is a journalist - and a good one!
Go check out his stories about when he worked in Fleet Street (London for my readers over the pond) - it's fascinating!
Again I don't see any rules about passing it on but like the last one I will just choose one person, so
