i done gone moved!
bragging as a recreational sport: the london edition
so. i went to france. i made a pit stop in the londons on my way and went to saatchi and met up with a dapper young feller named Jesus:
so urs has drawn up detailed plans for us to build a machine that will turn her into a cat. she spends hours explaining the machine to me, debating what sort of cat she should be and continually asking when we are going to build the machine. maybe when she asks me for the 7000th time i'll break down in a fit of exhaustion and say "i don't know. at all. i have not earthly idea how to build a simple machine, let alone a magic catification machine. no idea. and sadly even people who can make machines have no idea because it is totally impossible. You Will Never Be An Orange Tabby."but until then...
hung out with nissa a bunch (and her lovely mother)
got a tattoo based on courtney cassidy's artwork
did no small amount of thriftering
saw a wee bit of art
bought the odd trinket
had the most delicious pile of grease at le depanneur le pick up
and leered at beautiful bikes. seriously, that chain guard gave me wood.
