I am not working on my own stuff nearly as much as I'd like to/ought to but I am eating well and having fun.
Tuesday, after the burrito, I walked over to the old Champs location, which is now a vegan market, Haymarket.
They also have a small baked goods counter. I got a vegan pain au chocolat!! I have been to France and enjoyed the pain au chocolats greatly, so I was skeptical but this was definitely flaky and delicious.
Then, yesterday, I went to visit my friend Erica at her job at the Morbid Anatomy Museum, in Gowanus. I don't know how you all feel about that kind of stuff - there are taxidermied animals, formaldehyde-preserved cuties, two-headed cows, and the like, as well as human "curiosities." I won't post any photos so as to not offend anyone, but as I understand it, the museum itself doesn't buy the pieces; they are either donated or found. Erica is vegan and she's ok with the ethics, so I trust her. In any case, I find that sort of stuff pretty interesting. The museum also houses a small occult library and holds talks on various topics: magic, memorial jewelry, life after death, whatever.
We made a stop at the new Gowanus Whole Foods, talked about vegan food and candy, and on her recommendation, I picked up some vegan rice pudding, plus a few other things....
So that was my staycation. I'm off Saturday also for a Feminist Zine Fair (if anyone is local, come!!) but I think next week is back to my regular schedule for a while. It's been fun.
