Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Simple Perversions

Mean Things to Do


The first one is the burning bag of dog droppings trick: Fill a paper bag with dog poo, stealthily put it in front of your enemy's door when you are sure he is home, set the paper on fire, ring the doorbell, and hide in the bushes to watch him come to the door and stamp the fire out.

I had led a sheltered life, I guess, because I had never heard of it until I read it in the book.

Another says "Remove all the gin from the used bottle and replace with spring water."
