I'm Baaaaack

I just returned yesterday from my trip to Oxford, Mississippi for the Faulkner Conference. It was absolutely nerd-tastic. It was infinitely more amazing than I expected and I'm more than a little sad to be back here in Dallas.

If you are also stuck in Dallas, you can come see us at the Show Pony Show in Deel Ellum. We'll have new items as well as some of the old favorites. So you should come check it out, it'll be really fun for everyone.

Line Jumper?

Ok, this is a bit off topic for the blog, but I'm interested in people's opinions. Jer and I just went to see "The Dark Knight" (it's great, you should see it) and our theater has the ticket window outside the building. I bought our tickets before hand, but had to pick them up at the window.

There is one of those rope maze thingies outside the ticket window and if no one is in line, we normally bypass the maze and go straight to the window. Today as we approached there was a woman with about four kids winding through the maze. They weren't to the front when the teller called for the next person, so I went and handed her my card to get the tickets.

Mom didn't like this and she started griping to me about cutting in line. I asked her what she wanted me to do, quit what I was doing so she could go? She said yeah, I should go to the back of the line. As the teller handed me the tickets I said they were prepaid and she didn't lose her spot then we walked off. It took about 30 seconds for the whole incident.

Jeremy thought the whole thing was funny. I don't think I was in the wrong, but only because I was just picking up tickets. So is there a difference? Here's the sticky part, if we had been purchasing tickets, I would have done the maze thing. Is this a grey area, or is line cutting line cutting no matter what the circumstance.

Oh, and this is just another instance where Jeremy and I are out and some woman comes up and starts yelling at me. Jeremy never jumps in; he says I can handle myself. Don't ask about the Wal-Mart parking lot.

(Jer just asked me if I wanted any watermelon. I said yes and he handed me HIS bowl. Is that wrong? Offer me some, but not my own, just a bite or two of his? guh.)

So I haven't posted in a while, but I have a good reason. I've been darn busy!

There has been a lot of sewing going on over here. I made lots of these Apathy Bird pouches, so there should be plenty for everyone. I also upgraded some pouches that I'd already made. They are being listed now, too.

I've also been taking care of family things and preparing for a trip this week. I'll be gone most of next week, so any orders placed after thisThursday will be mailed next Friday.

We applied to the Show Pony Show that will be going down next month. We'll know in a could of days if we were accepted. I'll make another post about it then.

We already love LOL cats and, in fact I often give LOL cat images in my feedback on Etsy. But now my love ahs been firmly solidified because Sonya from icanhascheezburger featured our Apathy Bird pouch in her Storque article. Would it be ironic if I said that I was really excited about this?
