Lessons Learned

Today was another socialization experience. In drama, we had much fun making fools of ourselves by striking ridiculous poses (I assumed an Egyptian and The Scream), and then read through our script for the first time. The play is a courtroom Cinderella fairytale, and I'm a little old lady who turns out to be the fairy godmother. I get to threaten people with an umbrella.

In sewing, I shredded my poor wittle thumb trying to cut through canvasy stuff. Who knew the handles of scissors are as dangerous as the blades?

Also, a sewing tip: The machine is most effective when the needle is threaded.

Also, a computer tip: The laptop battery does not charge unless the AC adapter is plugged into an outlet.

Yes, I have learned all sorts of important life lessons lately.

Postscript: Today was National Coffee Day. I thought you might want to know that, now that you're probably reading this tomorrow.


  1. Just so you know, I have been quite determined to make my machine work without the needle being threaded. Alas, it is not to be! I should take life lessons from you -.-

    Coffee day, eh? Bleh.... ;)

  2. Actually, I'm reading it today. And I knew that it was National Coffee Day!
    ... too bad it's not during November, right?

  3. haha those are very good lessons to learn. And yes, I too have discovered that things generally do not charge if the power source is not plugged in. Facepalm moments FTW! :D By the way, congratulations! I nominated you for an award on my blog. Definitely check it out and spread the bloggy love!

  4. I once ran my finger over a scissor blade to prove to my friend that it wasn't sharp, despite his continuous insistence that the scissors were, in fact, VERY sharp.

    Turns out I was wrong. Not exactly one of my glowing moments of brilliance. :P

    And fear not...I'm reading this today! Your postscript was not wasted! (Although I live in Canada and don't like coffee...huh)



A blog without comments is a lonely place.
