Not all that bad

When work is crazy, when I get down on myself about any one of my numerous vices, or when everything seems just a little too overwhelming. Where do I go when a need a happy place?

I like to sit back, take a deep breathe, and realize that life could be a whole lot different. Then I smile, and wave down the server for another extra dirty martini.

Newton's 3rd Law

Growing up we had a strict no swearing policy in the Apitz house. The kibosh was quickly put on anything and everything that even hinted at profanity.

To my mom, who I love dearly, I say A for effort. Every time I stitch the f-bomb in cross stitch I think of you, and how proud you must be of me.

The meaning of love

I thought I would give the Stitch Out Loud masses a little warm up to the quickly approaching Valentine's Day. And what's more inspiring in the realm of lovey-dovey-ness than the 1970 classic Love Story?

Even if you are not familiar with the movie, the plot or the actors, or simply weren't alive when this movie was released - you without a doubt are familiar with the famous quote:

"Love means never having to say you're sorry."

Little did you know this quote came out of editing. Below I submit to you the originally scripted line, recorded forever in cross stitch awesomeness.

My favorite Disney movie

A kick ass coworker of mine, Rich, and I were discussing Disney movies the other day over lunch. (Feel free to laugh and make fun of me here....Lord knows I would). Anyways - Mary Poppins quickly rose to the top as both of our favs. dedication I submit to you the following. Appropriate for any occasion. (As long as that occasion does not include little kids, great grandparents or crotchety stuffy anti-profanity zealots.)
