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.
Last week, I learned that the term unicorn, when applied to gay women, means a lesbian who is attractive to both men and women AND who is willing to participate in their threesome fantasies. I also learned that the reason they’re called unicorns is BECAUSE THEY DON’T EXIST. This made me laugh hard, and ever since, I have had unicorns (the other kind) on the brain.
When it comes to the one-horned creatures of fantasy, I find myself getting a little starry eyed and silly. No, I don’t want to decorate with them or dress like them, but I definitely have a soft spot for the things. That said, this week’s Etsy search did quite a bit to curb my enthusiasm.
