I instantly fell in love with this dress pattern because of the yoke – that shoulder detail – but then I almost immediately decided that, overall, I don’t like it so well. I don’t like the wrap style or the big flowing sash. I thought, it looks like a fancy housecoat. And then I realized that’s exactly what it is. Well, it does come up when you click on “Dresses” so of course that’s what I thought I was looking at.
I started this on Friday. I thought that over the course of a day or two I would have lots of this ‘n’ that but nothing else came up that I wanted to share. So here I am finally trying to finish it and I don’t know whether it’s going to turn out to be more like a Random Linkage or a Random Thoughts but anyway, here we go.
It occurred to me this morning that I am not all that different from my cats. The silverware is no longer located in the same place it was before we tore the kitchen apart and started rebuilding it but whenever I want a spoon I keep going to the drawer that is in the same relative location as the old silverware drawer. And a couple of the new cabinet doors don’t open the same way as the old cabinets and we haven’t got around to putting the hardware on yet so I keep trying to open those doors the wrong way.
Cable was back on last night. Yay. Now we can go back to channel surfing and complaining that on 75 channels, for which we are paying over fifty dollars a month, there’s nothing to watch.
My number four/dollar sign key still doesn’t work. Yes the “four” on the keypad still works but it’s all the way over there and it doesn’t have a dollar sign. Wait… is there a code for the dollar sign? Nope. Darn. I tried turning the keyboard upside down and shaking it. That works sometimes but not this time.
Wow. I have a lot of bookmarks but nothing really interesting. I need to clean those out sometime.
Socialism and/or Barbarism is better than that title suggests.
Weirdest name ever for a fabric store – Urban Burp. I really do not need to be looking at that site. It doesn’t look like you can buy fabric online though. When you click on a picture you just get a bigger picture, no price per yard or “click here to order” or anything like that which makes me not even want to look at it. When I look at an online fabric store (or any online store) I know I can’t have everything I see that I want but I can look and think, “maybe”. But with this site there’s no “maybe”; I only get to look at stuff I definitely can’t have. But they have some really nice stuff for people who live in San Francisco. Found it at A Dress A Day. I love this line: UB is heavy on the mid-century barkcloth, great for upholstering chairs, but not so much for upholstering one’s self Okay, maybe I’m not all that interested after all.
Ooooo! Sunshine! I think I see sunshine, just a little bit. Oh. It’s gone. I should go to the store this morning and get the few things on my list while it’s not raining.
The guy from the flooring store said when I ordered my new linoleum… er, I mean “vinyl flooring”… last week that it would be in “early next week” so he had better call today. Tuesday can still be considered “early” in the week, I suppose but Wednesday is definitely mid-week. So he had better call today or else… I will be annoyed.
