This weekend I had the very nice pleasure of visiting my BFF Amber in Richmond, Virginia. I found myself documenting various moments with the camera on my Blackberry and I'll share them with you.
Almost immediately after Amber picks me up we're off for sushi. My husband doesn't like Japanese or Chinese food so I hardly ever get to enjoy it. Also, there's no sushi in this town! On the right side of the photo you can see a New York Strip roll: New York Strip on top of a shrimp roll and paired with a delicious sauce that we thought was a mixture of teriyaki and wasabi. DELICIOUS!
After sushi, we hung out at a nearby biker bar during karaoke night. I was informed that dancing is illegal in venues that serve alcohol and my mind was blown! Amber and I karaoke-d very badly to Sublime's "What I Got" and hightailed it out of there!
The next morning I tabled at the Richmond Zine Fest. I've been looking forward to it for so long and it was really amazing! I was surrounded by like-minded folks who loved to write and create. Ah! I got to meet some zine super-stars such as Alex Wrekk from Stolen Sharpie Revolution, Nicole from Click Clack Distro, and Taylor from Parcell Press.
And I'm sure I dropped $40 on zines. Pretty sure.
The next day we ate lunch and the fanciest Arby's I've ever been too. Classical music was playing and there were black peppercorn and sea salt grinders at every table. FANCY! Then we visited the Edgar Allen Poe museum and enjoyed a guided tour. I was convinced a guy in our group was casing the joint since he kept asking about the value of some items and if the broken glass wall was good security. He was super suspicious!
My flight left at 6 a.m. on Monday and I got to enjoy the most beautiful sunset! I had a great, interesting weekend and I'm going to have a great, interesting Thanksgiving because Amber's coming down to hang out for the holidays! Can't wait!
On a different note, today has been bananas. It's been non-stop raining thanks to Tropical Storm/System Ida and my dang dog chewed up my BRAND NEW boots and pooed in the house (too wimpy to go out in the rain!). Just...ugh.
