Hey all (including potential new friends I met yesterday who took the trouble to actually visit the website scrawled on the inside of Marmalade Umlaut.)
Anyway, the Brooklyn Zine Fest yesterday was lots of fun. I didn't make it to the vegan pop up shop (perhaps Abby Bean will have a recap of that for you?) so I can't show you all the goodies I might have picked up there - and there did seem to be a bunch of exciting vendors - but I WILL show you my zine haul!
Anyway, fun as it was to talk to people (fueled by much beer) and trade reading materials, the day was pretty draining, mentally and physically - I biked to both this event and Greg's show later that night (which was a great one btw). See, it's funny; I zine partially because I have a lot of anxiety about social interaction so I prefer to stay home and write my thoughts out in solitude. And then the whole concept of a zine fest is about being social and talking things up and ahhh..! But I sort of figure most people who zine feel the same way, so I tried to step it up and be friendly.
SO I was happy to sleep in a little this morning, run a couple errands, and read and clean the house. I got groceries and baked Jackie's Blackberry Mango Muffins.
One of these was basically my lunch. Okay, plus a couple extra pistachios.
Dinner was equally tasty and a bit more nutritious:
And all was well. Okay, I'm gonna go work on my zine!
