avoiding the flu
flu fighting

I'm attempting to escape flu season this year and stave off any winter illness by obsessively washing my hands and consuming many mugfuls of this lovely stuff.

spaghetti and meatballs

My outfit for Halloween day, assembled at the last second from things I had on hand. Please note the large fork which I carried around with me all day, to much positive reception.

pumpkin after

Before and after shot's of this year's jack-o-lantern. My dorm hosted neighborhood kids in a night of trick-or-treating in our building and they were all delighted to see our little carved pumpkins sitting outside our doors.

pilsen bounty

Earlier in the week, I headed out to Pilsen to pick up some fabric and notions for my Halloween costume. I ended up stopping here, which was great and reminded me a lot of my favorite fabric store in Los Angeles, Michael Levine's.

After, I stopped at a lovely Mexican bakery and picked up some delicious pan dulce and snacked happily on conchas during my bus ride home.
