Practicing art fair avoidance

Once again the Ann Arbor Art Fair has taken over our lovely garden planet. Note to art fair nitpickers. I KNOW that the art fair is really four art fairs or whatever. I don’t feel like using 500 words to explain that, so get a life 🐽

My opinion about the art fair is pretty much the same as my opinion about uMich football games. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they happen in our town and I love the ambience when they are here. But. I so love that I can participate in them at whatever level I decide I want to, meaning I can sit over here at the Landfill and love that other people are enjoying these events without my participation.

Back in the Jurassic Age of my life in this city and even before I lived here, I loved to hang out at the art fair. I walked all over downtown salivating at all of the stuff I couldn’t afford to buy. Nowadays I really couldn’t be bothered. My financial situation has improved a lot but there is still a lot of stuff I can’t afford. But, after 10 years or so of on-and-off flinging, when I encounter an intriguing artifact at the art fair(s), the initial rush of “I want that” is followed quickly by a more pragmatic “where would I put it?”.

When I got home from work today, I did some chores and then we walked over to Knight’s Steakhouse for dinner. It was practically empty for Knight’s. Usually there are people overflowing into the vestibule and outdoors. We ran into the same old friends we had dinner with at the Oscar Tango last Friday. Substitute porterization friends. And then we made some new friends at the table next to us and there was even a Hillary Clinton look-alike at the table behind us. Knight’s is always so much fun.

We walked from Knight’s over to our fave Plum Market for orange juice and crackers and a Carolina chicken wrap for me to take for lunch tomorrow, since we have NO FOOD here at the Landfill, which is a good thing at this point in time, except that I need SOMETHING for lunch tomorrow so I don’t have to eat my arm. I kind of thought I would have leftovers from the salmon I ate tonight but I managed to clean my plate for once.

Watching faaaaarflies.

Love y’all and g’night,

    Where would I put it? That’s my buzzword. When I go places, I tend to buy food or soap, something that I can consume. 🙂
