a thrifting date…


Earlier today, Brian and I headed out for a thrifting date (we hadn’t been since before Christmas!) and decided to stop at the now defunct Buckhorn Baths for some pictures in front of the old buildings. This used to be a hotel with natural mineral springs, and although it’s been closed since ’99 the building has remained standing for it’s landmark significance. This is awesome and rare in a city where developers think we should tear down cool old buildings to build new crappy strip malls.

True story: within a few minutes of leaving our house we saw a scratched up car missing a driver’s side door parked on the side of the street. Inside the car was a guy wearing a hospital gown talking on the phone. A little further down the block, while we were theorizing about the guy in the hospital gown, we see a business guy standing outside his truck throwing up. This was around noon. Weird.

    There are 1,000,001 things about this post that make me miss AZ. The most excitement here are teenage girls yelling at each other on the way to school. And that only happened once. And I’m pretty sure it happens everywhere.
