Stuck on almonds
Dan's preparing for an installation at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, NJ. I went down to Flavor Paper, his main wallpaper distributor, yesterday to help with the "weeding" (removing the negative space from hundreds (thousands) of sometimes-tiny vinyl stickers.
These salted almonds (sent to us at Christmas by Dan's parents) saved the day. Between them, a clementine, and some red raspberry leaf tea (good for uterine toning, I'm told!), I was able to get through multiple hours of picking away at sheets of vinyl with tweezers and my fingers.
When we were done, we grabbed some Tex-Mex at Lobo. They start out by bringing the table a basket of what I judged to be above-average chips and salsa, in case you were wondering. And I was hungry-but-not-ravenous, so my dinner of chicken enchiladas with verde sauce suited me well.
p.s. How's this for a bathroom?!
