*makes a hat*

Is there a hideous shortage of costume designers in the US just now? Plays and TV shows now being put on because there's nobody to choose the clothes?

I only ask because I think everyone I've seen doing that careers meme has had Costume Designer as one of their top ten, and I'm fairly sure it's not something most people would either want or have the skills to do...

Also, I got two bingos in one game of Scrabulous, against megamole - I'm very proud! Meant I actually managed to beat him for once...

Hee, no, I understand entirely - I'm playing anonymous_greg and my tiles are awful and my score is dreadful!

You came up from behind in one of the games! You've got me on the run!

Yes, but in the other one I'm failing miserably :D

Oh, and Scrabulous appears to be dreadfully behind in the notifications department.

Because it likes me and doesn't want you to get, like, double my score? o_O (In other words, I dunno - I'd say it was a real word, too.)

That costume design thing is odd. I didn't pick up on it until you said. Weird. I used to do drawings of dresses and stuff, even made my own hat (with sequins!) once. But I don't have any seamstress or design skills these days.

I would be absolutely dreadful at it :) I did meet a woman who was costume designer on Doctor Who at a birthday party this year, which was very cool. But that's about the limit of my interaction with costume design.

Heh, dunno - I can't even do them!

If Heroes wants sequinned hats I am prepared to reaquire my skills and fly over as soon as they want me. lol. Doctor Who would be good too. :)

Oh, god, sorry, yes! And I've been meaning to say thanks for days!

no problem, just wanted to check they hadn't gone astray in our wonderful postal system.
