Today was really slow at work, and so, as is usually the case, they found things for us to do, since there weren't enough kids to keep us all busy. I ended up back in the greenroom, which also happens to be the storeroom for anything costume/theater related. Included all the fabric and sewing stuff.

The fabric is a mess. Treehouse never throws anything away, what with it being a non-profit organization, so the fabric boxes were crammed full of all kinds of fabric, including a lot of random weird stuff and a lot of little scraps.

So Holli decided that somebody needed to at least sort out the little scraps from the larger ones from the big lengths, and I volunteered. It was surprisingly fun! For one thing we've got a lot of interesting fake fur, from the various animal costumes we've done. Including some black leapoard that I was drooling at. Softest thing I've ever felt that wasn't actually from an animal. And I found some real stuff too. Leather mostly... weird. Why do we have a bunch of really nice suede leather?

Yes, I petted the fur. And the velvet. And the plush felt. And the satin. And I think I'm far too fond of fabric, because I spent most of the day back there and could have kept going when it was time to quit. Also, I lusted after the nice furs. They had a couple that would be perfect for some of my current projects, and a few other things that I know I could find a use for.

Is fabriphile a word? Because if it is, I am one...


I almost never meme, but this amused me, so...

(from Jordanis Jackal. And if my math is wrong, DON'T tell me. I did it in my head. Too lazy to write it down.)

1. Take your LJ username and replace each letter with the corresponding number (A=1, B=2, etc...). If your name contains numbers, you'll need to convert them to letters first before you can convert to numbers.

B-2 L-12 A-1 D-4 E-5 S-19 P-16 A-1 R-17 K-11

2. Add all of the numbers together to create a kind of super number.


3. Make a note of the first digit of this number, then add the digits of the number together.


4. Find the post of this number in your LJ. If you don't have that many posts, add the digits together again. Keep doing so until the number is smaller than your pathetic number of posts.


5. Take the digit you noted in step 3, and count that many words into the post.


6. Use the resulting word in a Google Image Search, and select a picture from the first page and post the results for us all to see!

Okay... my first choice image was not available. (The very first image result for the search, but it 404d me) But the little thumbnail is titled "Just trying it out" and pictures something that I can't quite make out, but which is vaguely kinky, from this site:

The second result is http://www.toothpastefordinner.com/012803/just-make-a-scarf.gif which amuses me greatly. He he he. I am much amused by all of this.
