Craft Vendor Apps Again

I've filled out 2 applications so far to be a craft vendor this summer. One of them I still consider a long shot because they have a wonky application that doesn't actually explain what they are looking for and even if you, by chance, figure it out then you can't suitably annotate what you've done because the interface doesn't allow for it.

Apparently I have strong opinions about craft vendor applications. Who knew.

I joined this Facebook fad I've been hearing so much about, and in the last week I've been contacted by 3 people I haven't spoken to in approximately 14 years, which is just weird. They were all performers of some kind back when I knew them, and guess what, they still are and I'm not. I've totally sold out. I work in a cube and wear business casual. I am like one of the supporting cast of Dilbert. And they are... sparkly.

Don't get me wrong. I don't regret. I suppose Facebook is just good at this sort of thing -- whacking you upside the head with the Other bits you conveniently let go. Or forgot. Or let define you way back when. Or maybe I ascribe way too much depth to social networking.

I have been seriously avoiding doing my business taxes. I just thought you should know. In case you were wondering. It's a fact.

I'm still a Facebook holdout. I just can't have yet another thing to check! Besides, I'm not sure I want all those people from the past finging me!

I am not all that great about checking it myself, but the good news is that once I succumb to the newest fad most people have usually moved on to the next cool thing. I apologize to all the Facebook diehards because my participation is their deathknell.
