Etsomnia™ 231: British Invasion

6 Comments

He seems like less of a Beefeater and more of a Gindrinker.

Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

I hope that all you Etsomnia™ fans had a great couple of weeks. I’m sorry to keep you waiting, but we were busy, busy, busy! First, Pride week kept us hopping, then last week, we once again participated in the Fire Island Drag Invasion. This year, our award-winning group paid tribute to the British Invasion, so I thought that would make a fun Etsomnia™ topic!

Here in the Colonies, many of us are obsessed with the Brits; their royalty, their preoccupation with tea, their weather, their clever turn of phrase, their music, their television, their politics, and of course their unique sense of humor, to name a few. And Etsy has all that in spades, plus loads more I didn’t see coming. Lots to love this week!

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

Meet Sir Chester Quackerton III. I don’t know for certain, but I suspect the poor little guy didn’t die defending the Tower of London.
