I lost my sewing mojo for a while, but the encroaching Virginia winter (or fall? Or maybe winter. Or maybe it's fall?) is forcing my hand. I have purged my ready-to-wear wardrobe so heavily that I have about a half-dozen outfits in regular rotation, and no...
That would be me. Halloween approaches, and not long after, DarkoverCon in Baltimore. I've been invited to my first ever Halloween party this year. I might go to the Con. I need a costume. Enter The Avengers. I harbor a love for The Avengers that would prob...
Oh look! I have a blog! A completely empty blog! Since last we spoke, school let out and back in again, my husband and I bought a house and moved from Northern Virginia to Western Maryland in 3.5 days, and it's just turning fall. We have a house and yard to...

We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. ~ Anais Nin

Indeed, the probing craftsman does more than encounter mess; he or she creates it as a means of understanding working procedures. ~ Richard Sennet, The Craftsman
what could I do but laugh and go? ~ Richard LeGalliene
...we're grownups now, and it's our turn to decide what that means. ~ XKCD: A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.

You are an SEDF–Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.
Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well–even those you have known a long time–because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.
You are not to be messed with. You may explode.
