Trying to work out how to create different collar styles in both shirts and jackets.
Also working up the menu from random hot asian fusion thingy with various meats to something wider and more varied.
The Favourite quite fun with non-sympathetic characters which can't be that easy to do. I thought the big point was to try to create a level of sympathy with even thoroughly nasty individuals otherwise you just wouldn't care what happened with them. GUess you get some of that since you do seem to care what happens with these very self-centred characters.

Getting down to actually making a bunch of new stuff.

New 10.5 tog duvet.
Watching talks on aquatic litter and other stuff.

Replacing things that haven't worked for a while like my daily haversack/bag thing. Now got a mil-tec thing which is at least intact. May wind up making myself something some time later this year since i got a pattern for various bags last year.

Cotton velvet though would like a few more colours.

I rang up an Asbestos helpline and they told me I might be ok and some ppl work with it for years without developing mesothelioma. And then I read that Malcolm McClaren obit where it was purported that one dose of it when he was renovating his Kings Rd shop in the 70's was probably what killed him.

but I've got to say asbestos is something I'm really into to rn. I'm going on a tour of African asbestos mines this summer, love to have snowball fights with the stuff and not forgetting old asbestos pipe lagging make ideal winter arm-warmers. Might see if I can weave some into dental floss, that'd be sick.

I've heard of those tours. There are two companies that do them: You Bet Your Asbestos, and Asbestivus For the Restofus.

Twas in the fleek midwinter (Ye Mad Puffin), Friday, 11 January 2019 22:21 (one week ago) Permalink

I once went on a site where an asbestos awareness course was mandatory and whilst they were showing all the different bad types to avoid (which most already been exposed to) and which ones you can chill and say it'll be reet cause they're only marginally carcinogenic, one of the group was saying how he'd probably smashed close to a thousand asbestos panels whilst doing bathroom demos as an apprentice in the 80's and some idiot quips: lend us your lungs, mate.

Pure bantz really, but it made laugh a lot at the time I'm ashamed to say.

I am into flossing too!
But not with floss. my new hygeinist suggested these “advanced soft picks” things. NOT the godforsaken interdental brushes, those things are horrifying. these are kind of like a ridged, rubbery toothpick.

i hated flossing bc my teeth are smushed close together & i could never get them flossed without hurting my gums & my technique was bad so i hardly ever did it.

i’ve been using these for a month or two now & flossing twice a day almost every day :D

also they look (to me) kinda like the fishbone sewing needle used to make a magic fish net in a Joan Aiken fairy tale i once read.

oh god i'm always referencing things that i figured were common cultural touchstones but nobody else has ever heard of, yesterday i derailed a meeting by using the phrase "bob's your uncle", which i guess might as well be "23 skidoo" or "what a shocking bad hat" or something

Karl Malone, Saturday, 12 January 2019 18:29 (one week ago) Permalink

i don't think anybody actually knows what it means, as tends to be the way with those sort of sayings. asking the question around me tends to be dangerous as i have an unfortunate barely repressed tendency to go off on long rambling monologues at the drop of a hat, ending up talking about the importance of the corn laws or some shit. i can't imagine anybody actually caring but people tend to look at me as if i'm saying some genuinely fascinating shit, which i can't quite work my head around.

i sometimes regret not becoming a teacher. i didn't become a teacher because i hate kids and i somehow didn't realize this was the actual motivation of many teachers.
