Shoot me, I kept the clothes - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Shoot me, I kept the clothes
Census gig now officially over with the turning-in of the badges and, alas, the satchel. (I suppose they don't want George running about impersonating a wodge of enumerator questionnaires or something.) Less concern for the original contents of the satchel, though, so I had the bitten-up pencils off them for a souvenir. They can have back the rest of the paperwork, I'd only have been tossing it in our recycle bin eventually...

Also? Basically, this, yes...

feeling: missing the satchel

That's the model we've got!

We got attacked by a census taker even though we did mail in our form. She was a very nice lady and the whole time she was there I kept thinking of you. Too bad George doesn't get a unique carry bag. You should knit him one with some of that gorgeous wool you sell. I am about to finish a large shawl on a knitting board for my daughter-in-law and then I can start something with that great yarn. I'm thinking a sweater for my new grandson.

Yeah, I got a couple of people who said they'd mailed in their forms, but this is Chicago, mail carriers here have been known to go berserk and keep the mail for themselves...

The trouble with wool would be static, though (a nice felted cover did cross my mind -- maybe there would be something I could line it with...)

And I demand pictures of whatever you've made with that yarn, yes, I do. ;)

Use cotton yarn. No static.

There will be pictures when I finish. Probably before the end of the century.
