Tonight I...

* Attended the opening of a fabulous exhibition (and ate devilled eggs, asparagus rolls and little squares of cheese on a stick with a pickled onion attached)

* Where I was introduced to someone as an artist. And, instead of doing the whole "Well, no I'm not actually..." routine, I looked them square in the eye and said "Yes, I work mainly in textiles but also do a lot of work in miniature." To which no one fell about laughing so I must have sounded convincing enough.

* I had dinner with friends at the newly renovated Sizzle Bento in town.

* Then finally saw Julie and Julia at ANU Film Group. There was someone knitting. There was mention of libraries* (although no one actually in a library, and certainly no one naked in a library) No mention of op shops, but that was made up for by (obviously) on screen blogging.

(* And budget cuts. Of course)

Excellent-that you didn't make any excuses and just were an artist-why is this so difficult-it shouldn't be but it is so well done! I really want to see that film. Must do so soon.

See, that wasn't so hard, was it? I'm very proud of you. Keep up the good work.

Except I don't want to be a textile artist as that's too easy (and stereotypically obvious)...

No, you just say 'artist' and say you work across genres and media when/if they ask for more info. In my experience mot people don't try to go any further than that!
