New pottery pieces finished, holidays at Disneyland, plants and second-hand finds at the Pasadena Flea Market, shooting more recipes for the amwa cookbook, and seeing friends and family before prepping to leave for Denver.

Some questions that you may or may not feel inclined to answer? I normally borrow some from old Livejournal surveys, but these are just random ones. Let’s do it. I invite you to answer in the comments:

  1. What’s the best thing you’ve thrifted or purchased second hand?
  2. Are you an overpacker or an underpacker? What’s your packing strategy?
  3. What’s your favorite street food? If it’s tacos…what’s your order?

__

  1. What’s the best thing you’ve thrifted or purchased second hand?
    My favorite was actually a gift from a local deli that Zach and I loved so much that closed. Zach got me two punny deli figurines in their closing auction (they had these punny deli/celeb sculptures on their walls), and I’m counting that as second hand.
  2. Are you an overpacker or an underpacker? What’s your packing strategy?
    If the trip is to a place that seems ‘nearby’ to me, I tend to be an overpacker because I’m like, hey no big deal lugging this thing around. But if it is far and I perceive it as a farther than usual, I strive for underpacking to make room for souveniers, gifts, etc.
  3. What’s your favorite street food? If it’s tacos…what’s your order?
    I’m going with my taco order since I ate at a taco truck this past week. Al pastor, green salsa, yes plz.

Much love friends. Hope you are all safe, happy, healthy.

  1. What a fulfilling week! I love the California I voted sticker and cheese boards are my favourite thing in life.

    – I have a wonderful neon green night stand that I added some cool contact paper to and it is my favourite piece of furniture ever.

  2. Your ceramics are cute! They’re not shitty–I can barely throw anything. I mainly just stick to handbuilding because I can’t really throw.

    What’s the best thing you’ve thrifted or purchased second hand?
    An Italian lamb leather jacket at the thrift store

    Are you an overpacker or an underpacker? What’s your packing strategy?
    Underpacker…I don’t need much

    What’s your favorite street food? If it’s tacos…what’s your order?
    Fish tacos!
