More Milwaukee Aventures

So we went exploring a little bit this evening. We found a nice used bookshop, the kind that's several stories of books, most for only a couple dollars each, all higgeldy-piggledy and yon. Lo, and here are my treasures:



I got several Bradley paperbacks, a few Star Trek novels, a TOS photo-zine, a random 1970s "Witch" zine, and "The Phoenix Trilogy" that I had never heard of but that she deemed as must-read.

Then we went to dinner at Mader's, one of the oldest pubs in the city. It opened in 1902 and was uber-German. I got the pork shank and a black forest cherry cake. Num!!





Afterwards Candy and I walked back to the hotel, randomly discussing superhero movies.

Me: And Thor comes out next summer. Chris Hemsworth in tight shirts! Sign. Me. Up.
Candy: Yeah, you're not shallow at all.
Me: Nope. I have layers. Lots of 'em. (pause) Like an onion really.
Candy: Yeah, totally. There's the Chris layer, the Karl layer, the other Chris layer...
Me: Any resemblance I may have to that statement there is completely accurate.

Well, maybe if people would stop eating pork they'd have to figure that out. CHALLENGE THEM TO DO BETTER, CAIT. THEY ARE JUST COMPLACENT AND LAZY.

oh man books and chocolate. Best day ever.

Have you been to the used book store on Haight? It's two or three stories and just piled with books. Not as quit as good as City Lights but up there.

No, what's it called? I'm actually going to be in SF for a day or two with my husband and wouldn't mind checking it out!!

There are a few, Bound Together (the communist collective) and The Booksmith. Are both really good.
