It was nice to get away from the horror of the new administration by going shopping. Today was the annual White Elephant sale, and I'd never been. Mrguy and I sallied forth at a reasonable pace, parked across the bridge from the event in order to avoid the madness and went in. We eventually went our own way, but it wasn't long before I found this:
A lifelong desire fulfilled. It was not cheap. People stopped me to say hi, to tell me how much it's really worth, to tell me about the volunteer (who I also met) who would have bought it at a cheaper price.
The line to buy my exterminator was half an hour long. While in line I found a pepper grinder made by Vic Firth, the drumstick maker, in a festive hot orange. I hear it has a fabuous grind.
Then we went for German food, and had spaetzle and red cabbage and grapefruit beer.
A huge nap followed, making up for a sleepless night.
UPDATE: Best pepper grinder ever. It has an amazing grind, doesn't leave a trail of pepper where it's sitting and the grind is adjustable. SCORE!
