Tonight at First Friday the Party Liberation Front was kicking off it’s Carnival of Five Fires. So there was much fire dancing, freak shows, and burlesque. It was a good time. Also, there’s going to be a festival of lights for the first friday of November, so I got to make a free lantern to use for then! It’s super cute, and was fun to walk around with. In one of the spots of Gallery five there’s a black light, and I thought the color combo there was nice.
Spent some much needed time outside at Scuffletown park on Strawberry St. today. It’s such a lovely little place, squirreled away behind houses and only accessible via alleyways. Wind chimes in the trees, little fences around the grassy areas (where dogs aren’t allowed, so no poop!)
I got some thumbnailing done for a client’s commission, and then practiced some of my hiragana. Yes, learning Japanese like a good little weaboo. :P I figure it’ll be a good first language (no genders for words oh thank god) and one I hear enough to keep in practice. And then maybe after that, I’ll try and tackle German again. Because while I love it, good god it’s hard to learn.
Spent the afternoon in Carytown. Had a frozen chai at the Capitol cafe, watched it rain, and then on the way back to the car, passed Chop Suey and saw their cute kitty in the window sleeping with the books. <3
COVENANT IS COMING TO RICHMOND. COVENANT IS COMING TO RICHMOND. HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT. I ALREADY HAVE MY TICKET I AM SO GOD DAMN EXCITED.
For serious, if you’re in Richmond, fucking go. I’ve seen them once already, and it was a fantastic show. I braved DC just to see these guys. Eskil is a lovely individual. I’m so excited they’re coming to my home town to play. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to go to a show that wasn’t almost 100 miles away!
