All human tragedy is grist to your sordid entertainment mill.

How annoying that solicitors and the like don’t work on the weekends.

Today we are trying not to think about it, comfort shopping on Ebay and eating cheesecake. I have been trawling the Old Navy website this afternoon, writing a wish list for my new ON buddy Pam to see if she can get me stuff in the shop in Seattle. So far on Ebay today, I have managed to buy a top for Jo and nothing else. My listed things aren’t even going like cold stale cakes, never mind their hot counterparts. Have more junk to get rid of, so will get listing in a bid to make some cashola out of my shite lying around the house.

DFA1979 tonight, which should be good. Not been to see a band in ages, and not heard much by these dudes, but listening to the album again this morning in the car, they are pretty cool. I bought the tickets for Lee, but I am quite looking forwards to it now myself.



I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
