Not as big as a trailer..

Picked up a set of knife, fork, spoon and chop sticks. All made of bamboo..
Hows that for sticking with the theme?

Catch-up from Saturday: Bought three stainless steel "serving dishes", unused (originally marked down to 99 cents each, at some long ago time when things were still "Made in Japan"), at the funky antique shop/outlet for things not sold at estate sales. They are now washed, I'll put them in a ziplock and stash them for the burn.

Beautiful! :o

They have storage bins that look like treasure chests at Wally right now. They are pretty good sized to! Thinking about a few, painting them and using them for drinks or something.


Well it was sorta warm out today so went and organized the garage with all the bm stuff in it. Still have two boxes to take out there but it is a pretty good start.

Yes, Pink and Orange - preferably highly saturated or neon colors. It is the official color of Disorient camp, whos events I sometimes get to here in NY. It's pronounced porange.

Makes sense.
Well done Fishy.

Though I envisioned some sort of cartoonish busted ass Giraffe in a slightly torn mini skirt, fake boobs (1 slightly larger), a half smoked cigarette hanging out its mouth, and just a smidgen of white powder around 1 nostril.

For the last few years I've preferred to walk and hitch rides most places. But, this year I'm bringing a bike so I can get to destinations easier/quicker, which hopefully will aid in actually getting to the destination.
