Who Knew?

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
it out. 

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.

thanx soooo much for the comment! i got the glasses from the council thrift shop. After i pop out the lenses because you cannot imagine how strong the prescriptions are! The council thrift shop is a pretty good thrift since its a jewish chain of thrift stores. So all these rich jewish ladies donate their clothes there, which are usually designer brands. So its good quality!
