Jessica of Teep is in the process of tanning deer hides. Why? Because someone has to, damnit.
I'm continually in awe of Jessica's capacity for intensive hobbifying. I was about to offer an excuse that my neighbors would object to the smell of tanning, until I remembered that my neighbors are either students or dead. I can't imagine that people that live next to a crematory would be squeamish about something like tanning. Drat, I guess I'll just have to fall back on ye olde "I'm too lazy!"
