He always wears a turtleneck and blazer. He thinks his glasses make him look smart. He definitely doesn’t suffer fools.

I think he had some unfortunate experiences as a child that made him as mean as he is, but he really does help me with my problems. I went to go see him this week.

I started working on a pair of black jeans this week but straight out of the gate, my sewing machine started acting up. I couldn’t figure out why it was broken so eventually I got Handyman Corn to step in and solve the problem.

I operate on a weekly schedule. My weekly videos are a big part of this. It also seems my sewing supplies are low so for this week’s video, I went around Toronto to pick up some supplies.

Finally, I got myself something nice.
