Can I gripe for just a moment?

Recently I spent about a week drafting a pattern and sewing prototypes for what would be my Where the Wild Things are hat. I spent a day putting a PDF pattern together. I spent a good chunk of time simplifying the process to make it easy for everyone to sew one.

I took a lot of pictures because I love the hat and I'm really proud of it.

And what happens?

A ton of nonsense comments (I counted at 10+) about what I look like, rather than the actual project. Not to mention a few PMs I read and then never responded to.

I'm going to go flag my heart out now. I thought about just leaving it be at first, but the longer they sit there the more annoyed I get.

And this ends my "I hate being a girl on the internets" gripe.

That's awesome! The only fun play we ever did was The Brementown Musicians - and I only liked it because I was the cat. ;)
I sense a theme, or at least some sort of weird Freudian influence from your childhood ;->

Hmm, you think? :P My first word was cat, actually.
My daughter's first word was "duck" (okay, "duh", but with her pointing, it was clear from context :-).
Why ? What did she throw at you ..... ;-) Steve

I'm not even gonna lie - I snorted. That was a good one!
Maybe if you snorted more often, and in public, you'd get less of the "OMG UR so hot, Will U b My Girlfriend?" Comments. Then people would just focus on your projects....... and your snorting.
Did you just tell her to snort like a piggy?
