Be careful what you say. He may record it and try and use it against you. Just be careful. You don’t have to talk to him if everything is working through insurance.

Don’t talk to him. You have no obligation to do so. Just ignore his calls. If you pick up without knowing it’s him, just hang up. Your insurance has got this. Whatever he wants will only muddy the waters or be at the least, be an annoyance. It might not be a bad idea to tell your insurance that he called, so there’s a record if he tries to harass you.

*hugs* That’s so sketchy that he went to that effort. Please be careful! The smart people who replied before me are right.


Thanks, guys.  I decided that I won’t answer the phone if he calls again.  I was worried that my dad might answer even if I don’t, but he has promised that he won’t.  So, I’ll be sticking to talking to my insurance agent, and that’s it.  (I don’t like that this guy has my parents’ home address, though…I hope he doesn’t show up at their house!)

TAGGING: whoever wants to do it!

I’m working on designing my second tattoo at the moment, not sure about what it will be yet. This one is inspired by the lyrics ‘fused at the wrist’. The concept behind it is my interpretation of these lyrics. The red thread is a symbol of connection, it shows the bond between the mutant kids.

Fan Fiction Writers Appreciation Day

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of my favorite authors, both past and present, for sharing your beautiful writing–and all the time, effort, and imagination that entails–with us. I cannot tell you how much some of your stories have meant to me, nor what joy they have brought me at times when real life has been a challenge. 

Thank you all! (in no order whatsoever)

Redthreaded Titanic-era corsets are back in stock in a range of sizes. These corsets are perfect for the 1910-1915 time frame. I have made them over-bust, which, while rare in the period, allows for a simpler modern fit while still providing the correct silhouette.

Use coupon code JAN2014 until Feb. 1 to get 20% off your ready to ship order.

I was going to do this at 4k, but then ended up changing my url instead (and subsequently losing followers), then…life.  Sooooo we’re gonna 4.1k instead with some pretty awesome people!

These are all people who brighten my dash and make my tumblr experience more satisfying, in one way or another.

Yay! I finished the prototype/sample for the new, adjusted, and improved Redthreaded Victorian standard corset! This corset is intended for reenactment, cosplay, living history, or theatre where a historical, period look is required. It is appropriate for crinoline through bustle era, and features steel boning, English coutil, and front busk with underlap.
