Yeah, right, so the girl who can’t be friends with FaceBook signed up with a twitter account. Really. What? Why? Because sometimes I get lonely when I’m out in the garage sewing and I want to talk about what I’m doing, but “Only 12 more bias strips to go! Whee!” hardly seems blog-able…. So, you know, twitter. I find the interface a million times less distracting, and it’s a jillion times easier to pull the feed onto the webby-site.
I totally got bitch-slapped by the internet when I signed up, though. Stupid little egotist I, I was all like, whoop-de-do, I want sempstress as my user name. I don’t know what I was thinking. It’s just that I’ve been using as a domain name for, like, a decade. And I’m pretty sure there are people I know at faire who don’t know any other names for me. And total strangers walk up to me shouting “Sempstress!” which is kinda ok at a faire, but a little freaky outside of one. So I just kinda felt like it was my name. It was a little shocking to find out that it’s someone else’s too.
Makes me sad.
So I’m now patterngeek as well as sempstress and the more familiar missa (also taken, but less surprising).
