A Brief Recap of the Day’s Events in No Particular Order

–The Professor fixed my car!

–Nashville, on hot days, driving into our city is really disgusting.  There’s this layer of brown bleck that just hovers over everything.  I don’t know what can be done to combat it, but we need to do it.  Having a poo colored haze over everything is not an enticement to get out of your car and enjoy our fair city.

–We might have gone a little overboard on the bag collecting.  At the end of the afternoon, when we were knee-deep in bags spread all over the Professor’s living room, I saw this brief look in her eyes a mixture of horror and delight, that look that I’m sure all crafters know, when you say to yourself “What the fuck have I gotten myself into?”

–But bag collecting was awesome!  We drove all over, got to say “hi” to a bunch of people.  We even stopped in at NM’s, even though she didn’t have any bags, just because we were in the neighborhood.

–So, even though I was teasing the Professor about it all night, I’m actually very curious to see how they turn out.

–And you are not going to believe who I saw Saturday evening!  Tiny Pasture!  I about fell over.  There he was, talking and drinking and eating food just like regular folks.  The thing that cracks me up most about him is how much he reminds me of the recalcitrant brother.  I didn’t realize that until just last night, but I think that’s why I am so fond of him, even though he’s… well, he is who he is.  I just feel kind of sisterly towards him.

–I’m sure there’s some other stuff, but I can’t think of it right now.

–Oh, except to tell you that Mary Mancini had the best beer in her keg and that, as usual, I ended up having to introduce myself to folks as the Butcher’s sister.  Is there anyone in town that man does not know?  I’m just going to get a t-shirt made that says, “No, you don’t know me, but you probably know my brother” and then on the back, it will have his picture, preferably the one with him with a giant handle-bar moustache.

  1. You better be finishing up the witch’s hat, because I am hard at work cutting up these bags!

    The beer was a Yazoo summer wheat, I think. It was yazoo for sure, and very summery and wheaty. Delicious. Especially on a hot day with dirt in the air.

  2. “I just feel kind of sisterly towards him.”

    So does that mean you’ll no longer try and show him your boob freckle?
