Shannon - GlassMistress

I’m a procrastinator, a sewist, a dabbler, a reader, a baker, an over planner, a mama to many furry kids and I regularly play with fire.

Havent carved a pumpkin in years (too hot in FL and they are a stinkin mess in three days) so why is it that an FB post about some professional carving tools has me all wound up over owning said set? Oh yeah .... TOOLS!
and *professional* tools at that! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Lady on TV has LLL cup boobs, wants QQQ o-O
No. Just...no. - Corinne L
She needs her head examined. - Janet
They were so big they weren't even implants but tissue expanders. She had little valves in her arm pits where more fluid could be added. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Whoa ... way to start the morning! Total rewrite of our service contract from a legal dude with the county removing all the clauses that protect us from liability exceeding the cost of the contract ... TWO DAYS BEFORE THE CONTRACT IS SUPPOSED TO START!
Just had to ask two skate boarders skate elsewhere. Said "I'm sorry to be a buzzkill guys but my liability insurance wont cover it if you fall". They were quite polite about it ... impressed a 47 year old woman used the word 'buzzkill' maybe, or is that 'so last year'?
They didn't respond by saying they were willing to accept all risks themselves and indemnify you? - Brian Johns
i think "buzzkill" is still current vernacular, if somewhat oldskool. - Big Joe Silence
Surprisingly no, Brian and I expected that (though not in those terms). That's me Joe, oldskool ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Wish the skaters that come here to use our residential driveway were that good about it. - Spidra Webster
I imagine the fact that you gave them a legal reason rather than a "just go away, kids" helped. - Katy S
Three more offices got their walking papers from Corporate today. I remember how ill I felt when we got ours. Tough days ahead for them but here's to hoping they can hang in there and make it out the other side. We've got a couple of years I think before we can say we are successful again, but I think we are on a good path.
Hmm. This shirt is a little to bahoobious.
bawhatious? - MoTO: Team Marina
Heavy on the boobage? - Steve C Team Marina
A tad too low, and likes to slip lower ... time to put it in the bead making shirt pile :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Time to hit the bar scene and cash in on free drinks. - Steve C Team Marina
Fairly confident Steve that it would send folks the other way :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Got a second? I've received a complaint that my Etsy shop is not showing prices in USD. When I look I see USD ... what do you see? https://www.etsy.com/shop...
I think its a setting on the buyers end. Region maybe? - Shannon - GlassMistress
I also see USD, so it's almost certainly because of the user's settings. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks. I'm trying to fish around and see where that setting might be. Havent found it yet and she's convinced its my problem. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Why are you selling in Russian Rubles? (JK) - Joe
Oh lord ... ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Here's how a buyer can change the currency setting they see: https://www.etsy.com/help... - Christa
I see USD - Janet from FFHound!
She now says her region was set to Netherlands ... shrug ... no idea how you do that, lol. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I see USD. Also: *drool* - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Sorrie Stephan!e ... didn't mean to cause a delima :-D - Shannon - GlassMistress
Mom wants me to call the sales guy she's working with for a new cell phone. His last name is Horscheit ... I cannot ask for the man with a straight face!
I'm sure he has heard that before. :-) - Wicked Bat Catcher from iPhone
Egads ... the auctions are as slow as the show was. Hopefully folks are just in Halloween mode and will start shopping soon. I'm trying not to panic but......
You got this. - Corinne L
MAN went to a friend's house over the weekend while I was at the bead show. It was homecoming weekend so the daughter showed off her teeny tiny skin tight dress. MAN said it made him a little uncomfortable. "Why," I asked, " Because you knew her when she was tiny and it was weird to have a passing 'she's hot' thought?"
"YES" he replied, and he looked positively stricken, LOL. I expect most guys go though this at one point or another (women too for that matter) and the stricken is two fold. Both the horrifying thought that a 'kid' is hot as well as the 'holy shit I'm old' feeling. Has it happened to you? - Shannon - GlassMistress
Yup. Stricken is a perfect descriptor, too. - Big Joe Silence from Android
My mom just called, says her phone is dying (she's been saying that for two years), says she needs a new one. She wants a smart phone but doesn't want to go buy one because she doesn't know how to program it. Sigh.
Oh, wow, that was ugly. I feel rather stupid for worrying over it and working so hard to have a lot of inventory (lots of late nights). On the upside many of the sales I had were to repeat customers, I sold a 'honey' spoon, an angry fish and a santa; all of which I'm very proud of. That tells me I'm on the right track :-)
Does that mean they get to go in the shop? #silverliningforus Sorry, it didn't go as well as hoped though. - Marina's Godmother :-)
Yes, it means more stuff for the shop and FB auctions, very silver lining :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
You can sell on FB? - Yolanda from Android
Also, I don't think it is stupid to be prepared. Better to have stock than not making the best of your table fee. - Yolanda from Android
Oddly, yes I can sell on FB. There are a few private groups that hold 24 hr auctions .. I do better there than Etsy. - Shannon - GlassMistress
And away we go!

Oh dear, not a single sale yet. I may have made a mistake thinkin this was the way to pay for the sewar install. Breathe, don't panic yet, just breathe. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Thanks to three friends who stopped by and made purchases I have broken even on the table. - Shannon - GlassMistress
On the one hand I'm hyperventilating and on the other, hey, I've got a lot of things to go in the shop for the holidays 😞☺️ - Shannon - GlassMistress
Over...whew. Better luck tomorrow maybe? - Shannon - GlassMistress
Good luck! ❤ - Alix May
Dear mom, please stop sending me links to things you want for Christmas and just go shopping. You showed me 5 ... FIVE ... 1oz Gold Liberty $50 pieces while I was visiting you can afford it. Just sayin' Love me.
The sounds coming from the kitchen / restroom area of the office would suggest that someone other than me is cleaning a toilet. That. Cant. Be. Cant it?
Now I can smell cleaner ... It is possible the world has come to an end. - Shannon - GlassMistress
We are on the way to having a fan-freaking-tastic month of sales at work. First one in over a year ... whoohooo!
Beads all around! - Steve C Team Marina
Nope not beads .. sadly they aren't doing so well right now, something I'm hoping to improve at the show this weekend. In this case I'm referring to the family business .. the one we are just keeping the doors open on that employees several members of my family. We are right at the start of 'season' and if we can pull off a good one then next year will go down a bit easier. Woot! - Shannon - GlassMistress
My brother in the Kalahari ... So damn funny! https://www.youtube.com/watch...
People! Honestly. Go. Watch. This Video. Wild giraffes, wild lions, my brother in his underwear ........ you are missing out :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
confident my brain just exploded. Guy at the front counter is explaining that we have the cure for cancer but it isn't offered b/c companies make more money on the drugs to treat ... also the planes into the twin towers were the US military in an attempt to prove weapons of mass destruction and clean up Bush's mess. sigh
Me and my brother :-)

He's wearing that had because he said it helps him fit in in the Midwest, hah. Hipster hillbilly! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Good morning Friendfeed!
Good morning, Shannon. :) - Vampire Hunter DYSP from Android
Good morning, Shannon. - bentley
Good morning! - vicster: full-bodied
If you had been around someone, who had been around someone who had been to west Africa would you want to be told? Discuss.
Only if the traveler developed symptoms. - John (bird whisperer)
I met someone today who lived in Dallas 10 years ago I washed my hands for 10 minutes..... - WarLord
If you could follow a joint exchange of bodily fluids, my answer is yes. Otherwise, no. - Janet from FFHound!
Home again, home again. MAN is kinda grumpy so no big welcome home. Dogs were over my arrival in three minutes. Ah well, at least I'm sleeping in my own bed :-)
Are you allowed to sit on the edge of your bed? :) - Wicked Bat Catcher from iPhone
Yes! Never did figure out how to get out of bed without sitting on the edge. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Clothes shopping with my size 00 SIL. JEEBUS, it's like dressing a doll!
Also, imma need a cheeseburger really soon. These people eat nut, and twigs and berries! - Shannon - GlassMistress
My mother and sister fight over who gets the extra chips as each will only eat five. This is what caused my 90 year old anorexic mother to flip the bird to her 60 year old anorexic daughter. - Janet
00...that's like a girl's size 10, but with the length for an adult, right? I know a 0 = girls 12, because my daughter used to wear that size. But that girl ate 3X her own weight. She cost a fortune to feed. - April Russo
Ms.12 wears a size 1 and it's close to a girls size 12. She tried on a pair of size 2 pants and they literally fell off her. - Elizabeth Brown
I disappear when my brother is around. I used to think that was a bad thing.
Same thing happens to me. My oldest brother is an assistant superintendent of a public school system, so Dad's all up his ass. - Jed
We've run out of rules for the moment and have moved into the dissertations. So far this morning I've been instructed on: Not using polish remover (wear clear polish only and let it wear off. I'm betting the polish is as bad as the remover),. Also, that my desire for a brown bed quilt is wrong thinking. White is better b/c the dog grime can be..
...bleached out. Better still, now the quilt is sanitary (Ive not had a dog ailment yet, and I like brown). Finally, Agave is better n my tea. You may want sugar but here, have agave. There's honey too, and sugar, but the agave is best (as she puts it in my tea). - Shannon - GlassMistress
We've been up less than an hour. I already have a headache. My brother will be here at noon and it will get worse. We are broken people. It's really, rather sad. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I've declined a smoothie ... Am now learning how good they are and how much fun to make.... - Shannon - GlassMistress
Just reading this makes my head spin. :) - Wicked Bat Catcher from iPhone
We can do a full day of bickering in twenty minutes ... Not exactly a good thing :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
She is now shopping for a bed cover for us as a Xmas gift .... Brown is not being considered. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I hope this is a one visit per year rule on your part. - Janet
Whooboy, Shannon. - vicster: full-bodied
Part of our discussions have been her living with us in her dotage .... Big, big sigh - Shannon - GlassMistress
^^Then she will be subject to your rules, requests, demands, and dissertations. Priceless - Janet
^^lawd I wish! but I doubt it. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Break through the bs and try to get her to talk about herself. Talking about all the things sounds exhausting. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
how's the weather? or, idk, politics? maybe the Amazing Race or Project Runway? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
*hugs* I feel ya, grrl. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
*comforts* - Alix May
Fall day, pretty view, winery...WIN!

Bro arrived around noon. We just booked his return flight ... Two days from now. Mom is really unhappy.
Bro sounds smart and may be in need of escort from sister? - Janet
Actually, he is catching a ride from me to the airport. His wife came too, he hasn't seen her in six weeks due to her work. The live overseas and need to get back to Atlanta to get a cargo box filled before she's off again five days later. I get moms unhappiness but also get bros desire to spend some time with his wife. - Shannon - GlassMistress
But he made it! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Good morning lake. Cooler today, for which I'm grateful as I only brought long sleeve shirts. :-)
