Earlier this morning, my sewing machine semi-broke. The model I have now is the ol' Singer IZEK machine that is controlled using an old color Gameboy. The Gameboy died meaning that I can't use the software on the cartridge that contains information like stitch length and width, patterns and buttons holes. The only thing my machine can do is sew a normal, straight line at a length that is a touch longer than what I normally use when I sew. So, a few hours ago, I bought a new sewing machine. After clicking around, I went with the Juki HZL-35Z. Unlike my last machine, it has a zipper foot included in the deal. I just couldn't bring myself to buy one before because it seems like something that should come with every machine. I am a huge dork because I'm really excited that it has extra front feed dogs. Hopefully, I'll still be able to use my old machine for leather work. Now all I need is a better sewing space. =P
Since I bought the machine, I figured I might as well get other stuff I need. Which meant buying a few pairs of jeans and stuff at Sephora. I'm really picky about the color of jeans that I wear. It has to be very dark or I just feel weird about them. I don't like what I call, "Midwestern/Suburban Light Blue." It's just not for me. I currently have one nice pair that I pretty much wear every day. So I bought more just in case it gets messed up.
Earlier tonight, friends and I went to a comedy club to see Joel McHale from The Soup perform. It was a funny night and the opening guys were good too. I remember the last time I went to a comedy club, I could feel it dragging a bit. After the show we got to meet and hug Joel. He is super tall and totally nice.
