We do, however have some friendly suggestions for next year:..."
"...Walking through the show barn, I met a peanut carver who uses "the germ of the peanut to convince you of different visions." Take from that what you will. I also saw wooden alphabet blocks carved in a mad-scientist theme with (wait for it …) lasers, made my own keychain out of mahjongg tiles at a Dremel demonstration, picked up some necessary supplies from the Sublime Stitching crew, and bought a raunchy pair of panties sporting a tiger and crossed pink disposable razors on the front..."
