Handcraft House of Horrors

Saw this on alt.poly, and know enough people who are on my flist who do handcrafts but don’t read a.p. that might enjoy this:

“We’ve all seen those craft projects. Projects that look like the cat barfed on a lace doily, or that make one suspect that they were designed by a colourblind gibbon on LSD. Projects that say “good taste went thataway”. Yeah. Those craft projects. Well, here’s where they all come to die. Enjoy the hideousness, folks. And let this be an example to you.”

On this day…

We’ve got a life here
We’ve made a home here
We’ve struggled for this peace
We’ve reached beyond our reach
And no one can ever take that away
I know that I love you
I know I was meant to
You lead I will follow
You speak and I’ll know
To me the truth was always very clear
‘Cause we’ve got a life here.”
–Ben Wakeman, “We’ve Got A Life Here”

One year ago today, we stood in a crowded courtroom, in front of friends and lovers and total strangers, and made public and legal the committment we’d already made to one another.

Happy anniversary, love, this first of many.

Directions: Type “(your name) is” , (with the quotes) into a Google search, cut-and-paste the first 10 responses that work. Just pull the answers right out of the excerpt google shows you, don’t click the link and search around. The only rule is that each one has to start with “(your name) is”.

Well, this should be amusing:
