    Even if the bus driver somehow correctly approximated the author’s age, which she discloses as a very youthful-looking 38, but chose to make light of her youthful appearance (for whatever reason—manner of dress, lack of visible signs of aging, physical stature) by calling her “little one,” I remain unconvinced it was an expression of homophobia. Is it uncomfortable/insulting to be infantilized? Yes. Is it homophobic? 🤔

    Thanks for sharing this. An interesting read, but in many places it left me wanting more. Genuine question: where is the “latent homophobia” in misjudging someone’s age?

    Thank you! I'm not super attentive to time when I'm in the zone, but I made each of them in less than a day.

    I so miss feeling comfortable shopping in person this past year, but have really appreciated businesses that offer non-fussy, non-privacy-invasive curbside service, including and especially my local craft store. Place an order online, call when I arrive, they bring it out, and bam! Back to the craft room!
    You know how sometimes what comes out to your car wasn't what you were expecting, though? Well, now I have a bag of poly fiber fill half as big as I am. Umm, which is... yeah, a lot. But, this last week I found considerable delight in making these two plush toys. The first is a gift for a friend with a soft-spot for small, unfortunate creatures. The second I thought could be a study for a self-drafted Cereberus. Maybe. I do hear the call of non-stuffed projects...

    Eek!

    ✂️🧵✂️ Sanity through crafting! ✂️🧵✂️
    While I wait for supplies to come in the mail for my next sewing project, I made use of my hot glue gun and some odds and ends to learn something new and make this boutonniere for my step-son for Valentine's Day. The pink felt is leftover from another project and the green started life as a protective layer for storing that came with a pan. Here's hoping he wants to wear it! 🤞

    I felt so emotionally bludgeoned by the movie, that it took reading the review to process my feelings. For the most part, the places it took the viewer felt necessary to the satire. But other moments stood out as existing for shock value alone. The climax of the Debutante's Ball, for instance, seemed very much like it offered vulgarity for the sake of being Borat rather than making a point.
