I was recently in New York City, where I ran into this great
store, Muji. They recently opened an outlet in SoHo, and then
in May, they opened a flagship store in Times Square.
The store is a Japanese retailer that sells a range of things
including a great selection of pens, clothing, and furniture. I
really go there for the pens. They come in a large variety of colours
and write like heaven. I highly recommend them. Another
big seller is their toe-socks (below), which are like mittens for
your feet. They're eco-friendly and very comfortable.
If you're ever in the NYC vicinity, I recommend checking
Also, yesterday I met a friend and some of his friends at
the Dutchess County Fair. It's a big event where I live, with
lots of rides, fat American foods, and livestock. It's actually
a lot of fun. My camera stopped working right when
I met my friends, so here's just a couple pictures I managed
to get before.
Muji's cotton toe-socks. Très cool.
Muji's bitchin' pens, and some of their colours.
The flying swings at the fair.
The Tilt-A-Whirl, which went surprisingly fast. You should have seen the kid in the car next to us. He looked rather...uncomfortable.
