sew attractive~~

When it comes to fictional characters, I’m either attracted to the one that’s just too pure and too perfect for this world, or the one that’s a complete asshole with a tendency to just fucking DESTROY EVERYTHING AND LAUGH AS THE WORLD BURNS. 

There is no in between.

Just got caught up on Orphan Black and WOW… I love this show, so many secrets are being exposed. I feel like they might revisit Cold River Institute because even though PT was a lie I think he’s just a cover for the real PT. 

I feel like every time I want to talk about PT Westmooreland, PT Barnum pops into my head, it can’t be a coincidence that they share initials. Barnum created “freakshow” attractions by sewing the body of a monkey on the tail of a fish to create a mermaid, and “John” is very much like a decoy. 

Cold River does go back into the early 1900′s and there was a picture of “the worlds most beautiful baby” in the Cold River Institute’s files, the child would be much older than the experiment in the basement.  could John have been a front to keep the even the VIP’s in the dark about the real experiment origins. 

Advice from a 1949 Singer Sewing Manual:

Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Think about what you are going to do…never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically. Good results are difficult when indifference predominates. Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing…

When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and put lipstick on. … [If] you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing as you should…
