There’s been quite a buzz this spring around the Princess Animal abode. Oh yes. Because Our tiny palace, where the Princess lays Her majestical monkey head (not, we repeat, NOT the store), has been infested ONCE AGAIN with a swarm of black flies. A denizen of the public house the Princess frequents, the Dovre, claimed that he also has received a visitation of the creatures. “My God!” he cried. “We must have had ten flies in the house.”
Ten, my naive little friend, does not an infestation make. Let’s up that number. To literally hundreds. Thankfully in one room. Mmm, delicious!
Why mention these flies in what is ostensibly a craft blog? No reason at all, except that it’s practically all that’s on Our mind these days. And that there’s a rather sharp contrast between the plague of unholy visitors in one room and the Princess feverishly knitting a sweet pea green Shibui baby dress in honor of Her subject Amy’s human baby that’s being hatched about now. The more buzzing, the more knitting. Accompanied by the constant buzzing. “It was the buzzing of his hideous heart!”
In other more exciting and perhaps more pertinent news to you, gentle reader, is the exciting fact of another Craft Night coming up. And this one’s going to be very special indeed.
We are joining forces with Retro Fit, that bastion of foppish forward-thinking fashion folk who festoon themselves with feathers and fake fur, to bring you “Back to the Lab: an Abby Normal Princess Animal Craft Night Production.”
For one night only, we shall bring down the golden curtain for a special craft-while-you-laugh showing of “Young Frankenstein.” This will be accompanied by bubblegum-infused vodka jello, in the shape of brains. Unless We are feeding you reals brains. You’ll be so hopped up on craft and cocktails, you won’t know the difference.
Date: Thursday, May 26th
Location: Retro Fit Vintage, 910 Valencia (b/w 20th & Liberty)
Why: In honor of Princess Animal’s creating a new yarn in the lab, that’s right
Also, you can wigs and falsh eyelashes & custom tshirts, so put on your big girl crocheted panties and get over there.
Meanwhile, anyone got tips on eradicating this disgusting fly mess? Penny in the bag o’ water doesn’t count. It only distracts them, not kills them. And make no mistake: killing is Our business.
