Jigsaw Depressions

December 18, 2007

The family gave me a 1500-piece jigsaw of a pan view around St.Peter’s Basilica for birthday. Compared to Rafaello’s ‘School of Athens’, this is a lot harder simply because it predominantly has ONLY shades of blue and violet – from lightest to darkest, the whole freaking spectrum. And it’s incredibly detailed. Minuscule. Making the border alone took me about 5 hours. Separating about 150 pieces from 1500 is no mean feat. 😐 Putting them together is relatively easier. Relatively.

Anyway, when doing stuff like xwords, jigsaw, sudoku et al, I tend to get emotionally carried away by the whole activity. I actually have minute depressions, temper tantrums and flee-or-I-will-raze-you-to-the-ground moods. 😛 In case of huge jigsaws, I sit for HOURS at a stretch just sifting through the pieces, squinting at them, separating them by common-ness. And I HATE to be disturbed. It’s no different now. And since every damn piece looks the same, I will pray for the last remaining ebbs of sanity to remain. 🙄

    Ah, I agree. The basilica is tougher than school of Athens, which btw is located inside the Vatican Museum. IMHO, it beats the sistine chapel hands down
