T H A N K S G I V I N G :

My roomie Maria, her niece Pheonix, and some ludicrous-speed floor spinning.

Good mix of vintage and kitschy stuff. Worthwhile for easy finds, but rather pricey (or I'm just bad at haggling). Highlights: roasted corn stand and I did get an awesome yellow step trashcan for $5, which has left me unusually excited over purchasing a trashcan. However, I think this will be a one-time thing. I'll probably just stick to the De Anza Flea Market (actually coming up this Saturday, I believe) It's free if I park on the street and I don't have to drive so far. heheee. Getting out today was worthwhile though; the weather was beautiful even right after yesterday's downpour :-)

Pick up pennies from the ground.

Eat food past the expiration date.

Ask for extra drinks on a plane flight for later.

Today's steamed rice is tomorrow's fried rice.

Sell stuff that you get in the Free Stuff section of Craigslist
(except I get it off the curb).

Goodness! I haven't checked back on Jean Jullien's work for awhile, but every time I do, I always find myself in awe at how conceptually aware his kooky drawings are. Swoon* These are some of the illustrations he created for Waterstone's kids section.

Also super awesome:
JJ's Illustrated Diary
Niwouinwouin - Catastrophe music video
Table Man
It Fell Down the Stairs

Back at Cyn's again for the weekend :-)
The happy mood I'm in doesn't exactly match the mood of these photos, but here they are anyhow. This is on the way to take out her trash.

I've deviated for a few months now from my original plan to achieve financial stability, but all is still well. I'll be jumping back on that soon though (for real this time).

I started an Etsy store called Part & Parcel. Finally right? Vintage based, but there might be some art & design coming soon. It's been exciting to be able to use my photos for something productive and more consciously thinking about the lighting, the positioning. Sunday morning light is lovely.

Halloween weekend: Philippe's the Original. The OK Store. Plastica. Unphogettable. Really.

The last 11/05 South First Friday galleries, collectively, were the best I've been to. Maybe it was getting to see everyone too and veggie-fish bentos at Hydration. Definitely my favorite MACLA exhibit. Definitely one of my favorite ICA exhibits. Who wouldn't love an exhibit with a tree house?

@ the MACLA: Las Hermanas Iglesias - Drawn Together, Everybody Likes to Dance
@ the ICA: Tony May - Old Technology
Art on the street: Paul J. Gonzalez (his website doesn't seem to be updated though)
Music on the street: Corpus Callosum (creepy haunted house music, but I dig)
Also Kyle Pellet is having a show! Dec 10th @ Empire Seven Studios. I know I won't be disappointed.

Also also - Vivian's sis got married this weekend! I got to help take photos for their wedding. Had some good ones (photos coming soon) yep. This is also the first time in my life I have chosen to wear an all-pink my matching pink Lake Tahoe sweatsuit in third grade.

I still have credits on my Southwest account. Where to go?
