Vintage sellers: This dress is for the truly voluptuous! Curvy ladies, watch out! It's got room for boom and more! Rare plus size!

The dress: 38" bust

Everybody talks about how "All Star" got turned into a meme, but not enough people talk about the other cultural impact of the Shrek soundtrack: The utterly bowdlerized version of "Hallelujah" that leads people to believe that it isn't an extremely horny song.

Finding someone to talk with about how certain pieces of music effects you is a lot like trying to talk about dreams: a journal doesn't always hit the sweet spot, and unless you're skilled with words or both people are on the same wavelength, nobody ends up satisfied.

Food cravings 

There's a local company doing a wild food delivery box and I don't need all the mushrooms in it, but now I'm intensely salivating over the idea of some steamed sea asparagus and the only other way I can think of to get some is to wait in the round-the-block queue to get into the Farmer's Market.

Alcohol mention, feeling feelings 

It rained a little this evening, and fuck do I miss being in a pub on a rainy night with warm low lights and comradery and stepping outside under the street lights and the rain has stopped? One of many things not happening this fall, and I'm sitting with that small low disappointment.

The best thing about using three strands of floss on 14 count cloth is that when the stitches start to fill in and press against each other, they become like fat little squares and that's great for this pattern because along with these colours it's getting an old mosaic look.

Selfie, lunch break at the beach 

Went out with the kid to hang the hammock on the frame of the derelict pier at the marine park.

The worst thing about being medium height is when an actually short person asks for help getting something at the grocery store and you have to disappoint them while thinking, aww that's cute you think I can reach the top shelf

I went out for an hour at the beach and I didn't get sunburnt because it was early enough in the morning, but I did get a photosensitivity rash on my decollete, which is a nice way of saying now I'm a blotchy itchy terrible cave gremlin who should never stray into the light.

Can't stop seeing this piece of the sword and guard as an IUD, Skeleton Birth Control would make a great name for a terrible punk band

Things are zipping along, but this section has a lot of switching between two different shades of dark blue thread to make a diamond pattern on the gown and now I'm trying to decide how break it up and add easy to see reference/tracking points by doing the gold accents first. (Also it's nearly 5 am, I haven't been to sleep yet, and I'm just not going to strain my eyes with "Very Dark Navy Blue" which you can see is the very very dark line on the right.)

I'm up at peak Perseid time, but it's too cloudy for stargazing. Oh well, at least the Geminids are supposed to be good in December because there's no moonlight on the peak nights. (Shhh, nobody remind me they're likely to get rain blocked.)

*me waking up and blearily looking at Twitter* okay whet fresh he'll do I see to-- wait, Victorian era flirtation cards?

Food, surrealism, body horror 

I had forgotten about the KFC and Crocs collab until a bunch of pics of them started showing up on Instagram this week, and thousands of people choosing to make their feet look and smell like fried chicken while becoming increasingly socially isolated sounds like the plot of a very uncomfortable short film

Selfie, swimsuit 

It's not an ocean beach, but being outside with sand and water earlier this week was still restorative.

Shelves of Life - a bookshelf that reassembles to become a coffin 

@erinbee I've had this page bookmarked for a while, for reasons phoenixboatworks.com/

Shelves of Life - a bookshelf that reassembles to become a coffin 

"These shelves are designed to last you a lifetime. The wood will colour, the surfaces will mark and stain and over the years and the furniture will become a part of you.

When you die, the shelves can be taken apart and reassembled as a coffin. The brass plate under the bottom shelf, that tells the story about this transformation, is then flipped over and your dates inscribed on it."

Going for it with the catacomb saint/jeweled skeleton queen pattern by Night Spirit Studio. It's within the realm of possibility that it may be finished by Halloween.
