A week or two ago, I posted an ad on CL looking for someone to teach me how to sew. In case I haven’t said it recently, the internet is a pretty awesome place. A lot of people responded, and today a very nice woman came, and for $10 an hour, taught me how to use my sewing machine and make drapes. The windows in my place are ENORMOUS and plentiful, neccessitating about 16 13-foot drapery...

What we do when we say goodbye:
britticisms: At one point last night, I stood in the middle of a dance floor covered in flour, hips swerving to Soul so good, that I was sure I was experiencing some sort of out-of-body dream.

Shipping Guy: [Looks at bottles.] Are those alcohol? Me: Yeah. They’re champagne. Shipping Guy: Sorry, we can’t ship alcohol. Me: Oh. Well…then they’re not. Shipping Guy: Okay. Where to?
You should vote for entry no. 6 here. My friend is applying to be a critic at Chicago Classical Music. His entry was not only very good, but he was one of it seems only 2 people to actually follow directions (200 words).
A neat encounter
At the wedding last night, there was a table of all of the parents’ and grandparents’ wedding photos on a table, which I see at a number of weddings. It’s cool to see the different styles of the decades, and to compare how my clients look to their parents. Last night, the photo of the grandparents was phenomenal.
