I like mayo in small amounts. I hate when there's too much in mayo-based "salads" (tuna, egg, potato, etc.) which is why I rarely buy them pre-made.

But it's also delicious. I love in floats when little crystals of the soda form in the ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Absolutely. Shower-singing is also good. Maybe less spirit-freeing, since you're not on the open road driving fast, but it has the added benefit of being able to use the shampoo bottle or back brush as a microphone.

Speaking of which, I was hoping to make an angel cake with my left over egg whites but I can't find a large enough tin. v_v

Well, you said that Brando's family has a sewing machine? There should be a manual with it, or if you can't find it the model/brand of the machine should be printed on it so you can probably find it online.

Yeah his mother owns one..somewhere. Probably in the basement hiding somewhere obscure. When the time comes for me to dig it out I'll find the instructions or at the very least look it up. I am holding off for a few months since Youmacon isn't until November 1st-4th and I don't want to make the whole thing within the next three months only to be loosing weight the entire time and have to redo everything :/ Since my goal is to lose a fairly decent chunk of weight and develop more muscle it seems better to hold off until closer to the convention.

I can't stand greek yogurt, I've tried it a few times from this one brand everyone raved about and it was gross :/



Boyfriend doesn't go into work until 12 today, it's kinda super awesome. He's making biscuits and bacon!

They are the little thing that you wind the thread on to that goes inside your machine.
The ones that fit my machine are clear plastic and my cats think they are the best toys in the universe.

I thought it was magic this whole time.


Why do I have the sneaking feeling that I won't know how to sew too well.....

Out of curiosity for a design so simple do you think I would need a pattern for it?


I figured I'd make the long skirt, then the top skirt the way that Sakura mentioned she made her costumes-it looked really fantastic using that method and it seems like it would give the effect I am looking for.

I don't think you'd need a pattern for the bottom skirt. Maybe one for the top skirt just to make certain it's the right length.

But is is 2 skirts or is it just a wrap skirt?

Well, I have learned an interesting new word today and for that I thank you. Though based on US conventions, I would consider "spool" to be the hypernym for bobbin and I would call both spools and bobbins "reels" thought we don't use that term in home sewing here.

So would you categorize both of these things "cotton reels"?





In the US, the upper is a bobbin and the lower is a spool, though both those words have more general meanings as well.

Related - do you call them "cotton reels" regardless of the actual fiber content of the thread?
