On day 697 which was a Thursday, May 23, I sat in front of the TV, on the floor (because we don’t have a sofa or anything similar yet in our new place) and stitched a bunch of red feather boas together. Actually, it wasn’t even important that the TV was on. I wasn’t watching it. I was too busy, trying NOT to lose my needle somewhere inside the feathers. I knew the needle would come back at me, ready to sting me when I least expect it. Maybe even when trying to look at my most sensual on the stage… Why did I mention the TV at all? Well, I thought it was kind of funny that I was there with a bunch of feathers and a needle, for some reason wearing a single stocking, and my husband was right next to me, watching ice hockey… I don’t even know how many boas I had there. They had been sewn together already before and I was sewing some more together to create a really big boa. Afterwards, when I got hold of one of my lonely boas, it seemed really pathetic. No volume at all! Now I do understand why you need at least 6 of them, all stitched together nicely. Oh, and believe me, sewing the boas is not easy! Despite being tired and having a headache I did manage. I even attached a some lace to my dress instead of going to bed early. As a comeback to burlesque was coming up, I did have to do all this.
1. Own and live in a house.
Another day spent learning software development. Huh, new career, here I come!
2. Write AND publish a book.
Proofread someone else’s book (translation). Not in the writing mood myself.
3. Win a major race.
Rest day in the running world. I was having an easy week.
