Silver Screen - Dietrich Point?

All Sorts of Stuff

Ahhhh! Back at the Salt Mines! But after some relaxing time, I am ready to rock and roll.

Of course, this may not last, but who cares? I feel good now and for the time being that's all I want.

But talk to me in June. I may be pulling my hair out again by then.


Poor ballistabob was not feeling well this morning. I talked to him a little while ago, and he seems to be doing better.

I hate it when my sweetie does not feel good.

I have made some progress with my trunkhose. As it stands, it has already been basically put together but I still need to cartridge-pleat the canions, make buttonholes, and set the buttons.

Oh, and the cloth buttons are already finished and even boiled.

(Yes, the nifty thing about wool cloth buttons is that you can boil them and they full rather nicely. Yay wool buttons!)

Admittedly, I have come to the conclusion that I don't like to make trunkhose as much as I like to make venetians. Plus venetians are a lot lighter and comfier than the trunks. On the other hand, I do not own a pair of trunks, therefore it was imperative that I made myself a pair.

So there.

Next time you see me in them, if I ask you "Do these breeches make my butt look enormous?" the correct answer should be "Yes, yes they do."

Finally, I have done the cute meme on the significance of names. I find it amusing that both my mundane and SCA names share many of the characteristics. They are behind a cut because they are long, and probably of not much interest to most people.

See ya round!
