I did learn, however, that the Sophie Hatter costume is very much a cold-environment costume, completely unsuited to warm party rooms.
Something only just now occurred to me. I am sure you are all familiar with being cornered by someone that either desperately wants to talk about a single topic of converstion, or just desperately wants to talk and HAS only one topic of conversation.
Now, I know WoW is something I am happy to talk about and few are really interested in listening to and I try very, very hard not to corner people with it. But, I rather suspect I can turn the tables on the next person to corner me by starting to talk about WoW. One of two things will happen: he (rarely a she) will get bored/disgusted and uncorner me or s/he will be as enthusiastic about WoW as I am and we could end up having a real (and enjoyable by both sides) conversation. Either way, I win. Hmmmm.
Of course, People That Know Me In Real Life, dont' assume that's what I am doing if I start talking about WoW. It really is my pet (since VERY VERY few people talk about sewing) and sometimes I can't help myself. Because, dammit, we just took down *insert name here* and it was cool and I have to talk about it and... why are you cowering in that chair?
Besides, some of you DO play WoW and that makes you fair game. So there.
Oh, and all my dragon eggs hatched, but the hatchlings died, so, true to my promise to myself, I won't be playing that game anymore.
