RL Talky-Meat and New November Media

Weird, good, confusing, drama-filled, busy weekend.  Saturday my sister and I went out with some friends to this super-weird antique store in downtown KCMO.  It was on this street that looked like a bunch of old abandoned warehouses, and I probably would never have driven down it otherwise.  The store is only open the first weekend of every month, so three days a month, and it had all kinds of strange shit.  Some of it was your usual over-priced "vintage" furniture, which looks like they bought it from Goodwill, stripped the varnish, then painted and "distressed" it.  So kinda pretty but I am not paying $400 for that.  I found a few knick-knacks, like three glass apothecary jars, but it was more about the experience I think than anything else.

You know that scene in Jaws where they throw the chum in the water and then the shark appears?  This store was kind of like that, but with hipsters instead. 

Then we wandered over to City Market, bought tons of spices, and went to the Mediterranean Market.  Yesterday we had grilled tandoori chicken and onions on naan with cucumber dill sauce.  Hnnnngh.

So lots of other stuff happened but it's the kind of stuff I don't really talk about here (mysterious!), but I think it'll all mostly balance out to being good.  It made for a hectic and just on-edge weekend, though, so I'm strangely Zen about going back to work today.
