Brian hits the Twittersphere

Stop Press! Shock horror! And all that surprised sort of jazz. I have, wait for it, finally joined Twitter.  I know, I know. 'Where have you been all this time, Veames?' The answer is, who knows. I suspect I was a little worried that Twitter might consume me like a tidal wave of nonsense. But having deliberated about it for several years now, I think it might actually be fun. So why not come and play with me. My name is the ever so original @vicky_eames.

In other news, the lovely chaps (just the one chap I think, actually) over at have mentioned me on their blog. Have a pootle over for some facial hair fun.

'And what news of the ongoing book hunt?', I hear you cry. Possibly sarcastically. Well, I found a copy in the Waterstones near my work at Trafalgar Square.

What you can't tell by this picture, is that this is actually practically the bottom shelf in the basement. So, feeling a little reckless, I sneaked my book onto a display:

And then I ran away quicksmart. Don't go telling anybody, will you??

International Book-Hunting

I'm chuffed to say that I am not alone in my quest to seek out copies of Knit Your Own Moustache. I have friends on the hunt and am pleased as punch with the spoils thus far. Here are some pics:

So the above beauties are respectively: Waterstones in Greenwich (found by me); my friend Samia's local knitting shop in Hertford; and discovered by my friend Claire in faraway Portland Oregon, hurrah.

And these two gorgeous people are my friends Jean Chan (all the cool kids know Jean Chan) and my dear schoolfriend Adam all the way from Cleveland, Ohio. Slowly, but surely, woolly facial hair is taking over the world!

In other news, I've finished my Halloween designs for Crafty Magazine. Here's a sneak peek:

The patterns for these will be in issue 7 of Crafty Magazine, which is out on September 12th.

You'll also be glad to hear that after my last post I was indeed successful in changing my logos and also finding my next theatre job - this is a play called 'The Pride' which opens next week at Trafalgar Studios. It's a great play so check it out.
