The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Something to Talk About

A while back, Andrea and I pulled a sewing all-nighter. We were participating in our first two day show and underestimated the amount of product we needed to have on hand.

A strange thing happened that night, something that has never happened to us before....

We ran out of things to talk about.
Anyone who has ever met Andrea or read any of her blogs before, may be baffled as to how this could have happened.  (If you haven't met Andrea and are reading our blog for the first time, Andrea likes to talk.  A lot.  And rarely runs out of things to talk about.)

We realized that sewing all-nigthers may occur again in our future, and we need to be prepared.  So we've started a list of things to talk about for times when we are at a loss for things to discuss. One can never be too prepared for these sorts of unfortunate happenings.

A few of the items on our list are:

- An intellectual reflection on Cheesies.  What is your favorite kind and why?
- Dave Saville's parenting/managing of the Chipmunks
- People who use the word "irregardless" and other words that are not really words
It's scary when Andrea runs out of things to talk about. To my knowledge it has only happened this once, and she ended up falling asleep on her sewing machine while sewing. Not a good situation. Imagine the damage droll can have on the inner workings of a sewing machine.
We'd love to hear from you.  Leave us a comment if you have a suggestion for our conversation list.

Yeah, you're right. I think she's making it all up. That's just pathetic, Sonia.

I like that last topic. Hey, would make a really great blog post: Words that are not really words.
