Haha, take that memory! I've outsmarted you! I listed the things I wanted to write about while I still remembered them, and then the automatic draft saving thing took care of the rest! I am triumphant!
Humorless Feminist Tidbit: There's going to be this Dan Savage/It Gets Better event sorta thing in a couple of weeks that the Quire has been invited to participate in. I have slightly conflicting feelings about participating in it myself. For one thing, as I'm fairly certain I've mentioned before, the It Gets Better project itself is steeped in privilege. For another, Dan Savage is
a giant asshole
On the other hand, it could be a legitimately fun time. There might actually be nothing that makes me cringe (or at least no more than anywhere else in life - look at my low standards!). It's definitely in support of the community, and while Savage himself may be transphobic and misogynist, not everyone involved in the event will be, I'm sure. And who knows, ways to make
it better might actually come up.
So yeah. Conflicted. Humorless feminist tidbit over, for now.
Time now for crochet pictures, yay! ( Ted Kord, AKA the Blue Beetle II )
Anyway, he, the Hetalia boys, and Dobby are all now in a box, ready to be whisked away by the USPS to their new home <3 And I am ready for a break from crochet. Er, as soon as I can convince my craft-hungry brain of the idea, that is.
My current crochet-related plan(s) are as follows:
1) A month off from crochet to let my hands have a break. This will be somewhat difficult, as my brain is currently fully in Crochet Mode, but I will be doing my best.
2) Two Despicable Me minions for my mom.
3) A legitimate medium-sized
person plush or three. (Princesses
, maybe? I've been meaning to get to them for a while, after all...)
4) [MLP:FiM] Ponies, probably. (Fluttershy and Rarity, perhaps? Though how I'll manage Rarity's curls, I've no notion.)
All of that is in order, though one or more things may be interrupted if help_japan
has a second full round. I mean, I'll probably try to avoid putting off giving my hands a break, but if it comes down to it...
That's about all from my end today. I'll probably try to distract myself from crochet with Pokémon White (and/or Black, etc) for a while, though hopefully I'll also be able to distract myself with writing, drawing, and updating hooked_on_anime
. I guess we'll see how it goes.
