Saw a man walking in Waikiki with a gray tabby cat draped over his shoulder in a fireman's carry. It was a real, live cat; it was just lying there placidly, staring at everything behind the guy. I really wonder what the story behind that was--it looked like he was taking his cat to the beach.

Buy-one-get-one-free sale at Goodwill this weekend, and I made out like a bandit with a Banana Republic striped pullover of the sort that cartoon French people wear, a black agnes b. (agnes b.!!!) T-shirt with a sailor collar (sailor collar!), a basic black mandarin-collared keyhole top to add a dash of Chinoiserie to absolutely anything, an unusual and fascinating geometric top made of layers of green fabric, a slinky gothy dress, two plain T-shirts to paint, an 1950s-replica skirt, a big pink thing that can function as a petticoat, a black slip, and three pairs of white gloves. Not sure what I'll do with the gloves, but they were cheap and vintage.

I think this was bound to happen sooner or later:

While I was waiting for a dressing room at Goodwill, a woman took a liking to the rubber-platform Mary Janes I was wearing and gushed, "Ooh, where did you get your shoes?"

She deflated visibly when I said, "Um, here, actually."
