A Day in My Life
A Day In My Life
April 18th, 2009.




A Day In My Life
It was so friggin' early, the clocks couldn't even agree on a time.

A Day In My Life
French cuffs and cufflinks. I love French cuffs... er.. freedom cuffs.

A Day In My Life
It was 6:15. You try smiling.

A Day In My Life
I intended to wander the market to take photos and finish re-coding my website. Thus, a metric fuck-tonne of stuff to carry in the Bag of Awesome.

A Day In My Life
The girlfriend (lady_fox) makes the coffee. This is key to our continued copacetic existence. Time: 620.

A Day In My Life
Off to market! We live in a real city. Can you tell?

A Day In My Life
Spring is construction season here too. We want to be just like Chicago.

A Day In My Life
Downtown by 6:50. It was sunny and 60.

A Day In My Life
Farmer's Market is a little popular around here.

A Day In My Life
On our way to set up shop, Catfish Stevens drinks his morning coffee.

A Day In My Life
Mags stops by while we wait for booth assignments. She's a local artist who makes glass beads.

A Day In My Life
These were her newest pieces.

A Day In My Life
alyska owns the booth and business that lady_fox helps run. She makes funny faces.

A Day In My Life
Her "stop doing that" face.

A Day In My Life
lady_fox and jeffreyp set up.

Booth setup is complete by 8am.

Which means it is finally time for breakfast.

A Day In My Life
I gobble up my Teddywedger and go investigate the market.

She is frying cheese for samples. Don't your markets have that?
A Day In My Life
A Day In My Life
Our mustard greens are frilly. Becaues they are awesome.
A Day In My Life
RAMPS.

A Day In My Life
By 10am, the market is PACKED and it is easy to lose people in the crowds.

A Day In My Life
By 10:30, the morning coffee has gotten to me.

A Day in My Life
After pee break and market, I set up shop at Michaelangelo's to work on my website updates.

A Day in My Life
Um, then Michalangelo's caught fire and I had to scramble to leave. Firemen were everywhere and I was so out of it from a tension headache I didn't snap any shots. Coffee Shop #2....

A Day in My Life
COFFEE COFFEE COFFEE

A Day in My Life
Pee break #2.

A Day in My Life
HOLY CRAP I FINISH THE REDESIGN and upload the new site.

A Day in My Life
Much needed after the hunching over the laptop, staring at code. Time is 1pm.

A Day in My Life
I head back to market to check on lady_fox. On the way I stop to listen to some pipe music.

A Day in My Life
She's fine. I decide to visit the veteran's museum near the booth.
A Day in My Life

A Day in My Life
Market ends and we head home. This guy has the right damn idea.

A Day in My Life
I flick off a hummer on the way to the car.

A Day in My Life
We are fat and lazy and stop for lunch.

A Day in My Life
Shoot 'Em Up. OMG so silly. Time: 4:00pm.

A Day in My Life
I get restless and go for a walk in the rain.

I Don't Belong Here:  Day 7
Then my city was taken over by aliens. I take tis shot for a photo project group at photog_xp.

A Day in My Life
I edit and upload the shot to the group.

A Day in My Life
Then I get into a self-portrait debate with hellocthulhu. The thread eventually ends with him telling me to drink more, as they tend to do.

A Day in My Life
So I bust out the scotch.

A Day in My Life
With the drunkenness comes the ordering of pizzas because we are fat and lazy.

A Day in My Life
And then do laundry? WTF? I get restless and drunk in the weirdest ways.

A Day in My Life
@Electracat helps.

A Day in My Life
In a decided moment of industriousness, we prep a batch of yeasted waffles for Sunday breakfast.

A Day in My Life
And then I died. True story.

No idea. I didn't catch her name.
alyska From: alyska Date: April 19th, 2009 08:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
yup, that'd be natalie!

ohhhhh the farmer's markets around here have nothing on the madison one. the are also distinctly lacking the fried cheese, and of course you know lacking fried cheese is an abomination unto humankind.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 19th, 2009 04:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
Agreed; we all question the sanity of you leaving the fried cheese. ;)

Why does the farmer's market have to be on a Saturday when I can't spend money? ::rage::

The south side market at the Labor Temple opens next Sunday. I'll scout it out and report back.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 19th, 2009 05:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
You could hire someone on Friday to get you stuff on Saturday....
From: thegelf Date: April 19th, 2009 05:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
But that takes more than half the fun out of the farmer's market. It's all about going there and browsing.

In the Rosetta Stone program, every time you finish a unit, you do a "milestone" exercise. The exercise consists of a first person photo tour of some mundane activities (like gathering supplies for a birthday party) where you interact with the people you meet in the photos using the language you're working on.

Your day reminds me of that. I think the next one you post should be in a different language and less narrative and more first person.

You're awfully demanding for someone who won't wrestle an alligator for my dinner.

I seem to recall offering the meat of your choice if you were to come visit...

Awesomeness

I've always wanted to do a "day in the life" post, but frankly, I suck at taking pictures, and it really wouldn't be terribly interesting to take pictures of the inside of my apartment while I play Xbox.

Re: Awesomeness

You'd be surprised. Take a look at some of the posts at adayinmylife. :) Voyeurism is always exciting.

I did this once in the first year at work while I was still commuting from Beloit. Lots of cube photos. This was before Flickr and I lost the photos when the old server at Beloit died.

Oh man hey I live there! And yet you fill it with glamour.
this = good post
And I'm all excited for the farmer's market now. I'll have to drag my ass out of bed in time to make it before class one day.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 19th, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Market = awesome. Then you can come check out the shiny things at Alyska's booth.

Don't you live really close to the market too?

Just like ABMann - always putting scotch down your pants. :o)

P.S. I totally just added ElectraCat on Twatter. I rox.

alyska From: alyska Date: April 19th, 2009 08:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
the slightly out-of-focus one in the foreground with the pinkish red stripes is ocean jasper. the one below it in sharp focus with pink and violet colors, is porcelain jasper.

they're both wrapped in sterling silver.

*grins*
hawksley From: hawksley Date: April 19th, 2009 08:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
