sew long and thanks for all the sausage

I dropped my fam back at BWI to go back to BTR yesterday. They just bummed around downtown Baltimore, which is what I assumed they'd do since I can't take time off of work to do anything with them. Hope they had fun, I guess. I should book my flights in for Thanksgiving since I guess I'll be going back for it. At least they brought me some andouille and some Blue Runner beans. oh yeahhhhhhh time for some red beans and rice. Or, it will be when I can find the time to cook it.

I'm thinking (again) of buying a sewing machine for use in fursuit building and as a secondary thing, fixing all of the hems on my slacks so I can actually wear them to work if I need to. I planned on doing that about five years ago, but forgot about it. I don't know anything about sewing machines, though, so I'll just have to find one on craigslist or ebay. I'd like to do something creative, as I think it might be copacetic and stress-relieving. I used to do a lot of hand-sewing when I was younger, fixing jackets and socks and jeans, clothes I bought from the thrift store. It's very mind-blanking and repetitive, like when I used to mop the floors at Wendy's in highschool. I wish I had a big greasy floor and some boiling bleach-water to push around on it with a mop, like one of those zen garden things that 1980's CEOs had.
