Every Inchie Monday: Xenon

Hello Fellow Inchers,

Well this week's word at Every Inchie Monday is Xenon.  So I had a hard time again this week coming up with anything creative.  Hard to draw a gas:  "Xenon produces a brilliant white flash of light when it is excited electrically and is widely used in strobe lights. The light emitted from xenon lamps is also used to kill bacteria and to power ruby lasers."   ( 

Then there is a character called Xenon in some kind of game (MapleStory?) where he is a Thief/Pirate hybrid class, whatever that means.   And I think it's different, but there is also a strategy game called Xenonauts.  

Or I could have gone with the Greek meaning of the word:  stranger. 

Did I choose any of those things?  No.  The whole game thing confuses me and I wasn't sure how to draw a strobe light or ruby laser or a stranger.  So I took the easy way out and used the element shorthand from the periodic table.

At least this week it's pretty - sparkly pink letters on a lovely purple background.

Have a sparkly week (as opposed to a gaseous one).


  1. Just right for the theme

    Love Chrissie x

  2. Good for you. It sounds like we all went hunting for something different. I was thinking of one of those characters too but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to draw it. I like that your Xe sparkles :)

  3. It's all Greek to me! Have a brilliant day! c

  4. They get more gaseous as life progresses :) A sparkling cuteness

  5. I did not know that much about this weeks theme! I do love the sparkliness of your inchie!

  6. Your explanation leading to your inchie was very educational. The last part made me laugh. Your representation is really nice (and sparkly).
