I knew there was down time, but sheesh.

I have 12 of 20 seams done on the corset I am working on. Keep in mind, these are hand sewn seams and mostly worked on... get this... during down time while raiding in WoW. Either waiting for the raid to start, or waiting for the next pull (rather more time after a wipe then if we succeed, but there's still down time).

The busk was mailed out on Friday (the email tells me) so I expect it soon. The seams that will contain the busk are 2 of the 8 remaining, the seams that join the Center Front to the rest of the corset are 4 of the remaining 8 and the last 2 are the two that join the Center Back of one side to the rest - which I plan to do tonight.

This is going rather faster than I exected. AND I am getting sewing done while also raiding in WoW. Very interesting.

(no subject)

Good news! My busk is here! I can keep sewing the corset together.

Bad news.. really, just annoying and not news. Guy in front of me on Ninth Street did all of the following:

'created' a lane were none was so he could be in front
crept out into the intersection while the light was red (twice)
made a right hand turn from the left lane (still in front of me).

There are days I see multiple police cars on my way through town. And then there are days like today, where I see none. Alas.

Oh, and completely frustrating 'stuff' - the rules of math are, admittedly, somewhat confusing at first, especially when dealing with significant figures. But things get all sorts of insane when someone decides they don't like the way the final numbers look and make up 'guidelines' for everyone else to follow so that the final results look 'pretty' (or... whatever these people think they need to look). Especially really vague guidelines for everyone to interpret to the best of their ability.

And, no, it's not just this company, it appears to be industry wide. Goodness only knows why.
