I’m so behind in daily blogging that I can’t even remember what I did last Thursday. I do know that at one point I was all, “time to take a daily photo!” and I didn’t have anything exciting to photograph because the day had exploded, so I ran out and took a picture of the sky. PRETTY. (When in doubt, daily photographers, food, pets, and the sky are all great last-minute options!)
I can feel a huge rant coming on. You know, I try hard not to get all Clint Eastwood with the “get offa my lawn or Imma gonna shoot you in the face ya dirty punk” but for the love of Flying Spaghetti Monster. How hard is it to say “please” and “thank you”? I get at least one Etsy message a week from someone who asks me a question …. er, at least, I think it’s a question — with no punctuation I’m sort of guessing … and when I construct a long answer to explain how long it will take me to make their ten custom mugs and what color options they have and why I understand they think they’re making a large order but no, it’s not large enough for a 50% discount… I never hear back. Not even a “thanks for your time.” WTF people.
