Garage Sale Heaven

Today Mina and I went to the Goth Girl Garage Sale in our old neck of the woods (Atwood neighborhood). It was great because goth girls are always buying and selling their clothing...lots of black dresses and skirts. I bought a long, african printed skirt. It's black, yellow, brown and white. I also bought Jason a Henry Rollins book that apparently he read when it came out...but THIS one is big and glossy with pictures. It's some kind of diary of touring with Black Flag or something... I think Jason likes it when I think of him while I'm shopping.

Actually, the whole neighborhood was having a garage sale. I also bought three CDs: Porno for Pyros, Arrested Development, and Sinead O'Connor. Mina got a new Arthur book. It was fun to walk around with her, looking for treasure... I saw a cool chair that I wish was brand new. It would be the perfect "dad" chair and it was aesthetically pleasant/modern looking. I should have asked where it came from.

A lot of houses are for sale in that neighboorhood. I would love to live there, but... I have to wonder how all of these artsy hippies can afford to live there. Am I missing something?
