Open Sewing* Circle was a success! I sewed on that communal quilt a little bit but I spent most of my time drawing on toilet paper and cutting geometric shapes out of felt for a fellow quilter. I met quite a few people who live in the Mercantile right now and I regaled them with stories of going through the Mercantile, pre-construction. My friend got a nail in her foot, blah blah blah… Anyway, it’s possible that I could be around people and make friends and stuff!
When Googling yourself gets weird…

This month’s flea market was a total success – sold a whole bucket of roses, a pair of cherub-styled rain boots, an original print by yours truly, and a Mickey Mouse Yahtzee. There was a good crowd this time around and I can’t wait for the next one in March! :D
Mama and I just got back from taking a much needed vacation in the Big Apple. It was a one day, one night adventure through the Upper West Side, as we slipped in and out of talk shows. It was a completely surreal experience as we got to see what it takes to produce The Chew and then, just by happenstance, The Katie Couric Show. Apparently, if the weather can only be described as “slushy”, “cold”, and “wintery”, most people don’t show up to these things and representatives from these talk shows are begging for seat fillers. As we left The Chew, we were approached to come back to see Katie, we eagerly accepted. Two inches away a woman for Rachael Ray wanted to pay for our cab to see her show – too late though as we had to check out from the Comfort Inn and had already accepted Katie’s invitation.
Anyway, I realized a few things after all this:
- The power of editing is immense.
- Wear a bright green hat and you’re bound to be seen in the audience overhead shots.
- Studios are a lot smaller than they seem on television.
- The audience almost has more responsibility than the stars do (i.e. are poked and prodded by a warm-up comedian into oohing and ahhing at the appropriate moments, several won’t seem like they are and you’ll end up responding late anyway).
- When deemed emotionally vacant by the first show, have a drink to help you get through the next one.
- Honey Boo Boo loves her hair.
