Smashing Up The Closet

(e:robert) and I had a fucking great time working on destructing the old closet in the den that is going to become part of the massive walk in shower room we are building off the bathroom. I am so excited about getting started. The first step was dismantling the closet and I wanted to get it done tonight because it was garbage night. Too bad I am too tired to bring the rest of the trash out ;(

It was so much more work than it appears to be. Lots of dust and debris plus its taking forever because I am trying to remove all the nails from all the wood in order to be able to reuse the materials.

The idea is to turn it into something like one of these things.

But I also like the idea of combing the bathroom and the shower and making it a glass enclosed thing. They both have their own sort of appeal.

Asian Grocers In Buffalo

Today I headed over the the
Ni Hoowa Supermarket Asian grocer @ 3173 Sheridan Dr after a doctors appt on N Bailey to pick up some more of the delicious Korean clear noodles I love. The ones they have there are made with sweet potato starch. I also picked up some more premium tuna and some frozen arctic razor clams. I love arctic razor clams so much. I also love frozen rice cakes for soup.

Then when I was heading home and at the coop, (e:robert) called to say he was done with school and I swung by to pick him on. Sadly I couldn't find the rice cakes he was looking for at Ni Hoowa, so once I got him we headed over to the Vietnamese grocer on Niagara st to see if they had them.

Like Mulberries, I was skeptical of the place based on the location but I couldn't have been more wrong. Seriously, the food was amazing and they have all kinds of fresh seafood including the largest oysters I have ever seen. (e:robert) and I ate 1 dozen steamed cherry stone clams for $7. Came with melted butter and lemon. That is pretty much cheaper than I can find them anywhere else, even uncooked.

I got so many other things. The place and the prices are amazing. I will go back very often.

There is also another asian grocery store right across the street. It is a lot more of a store and not a restaurant. I think it is owned by the same people. It is so crowded I almost couldn't fit down the isles. I did get okra, longan fruits and durian cakes though. Totally worth it.

Thanks Robert for showing me an awesome new place to get food.

Botanical Gardens

Before Mulberries (e:paul,57335) we had made a trip to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. I renewed our family membership for 2 years if anyone wants to go I got some passes. I love the feeling of the warm humid air in the winter.

Mulberries Restaurant

For years everyone has told me I need to go to Mulberries in south buffalo and I kept writing it off because of the location. You think I would have learned to not judge after the great experiences we had at Curly's in Lackawanna. Anyways, on the way home from the botanical gardens me, (e:terry), (e:libertad) and (e:mike) finally made it there.

The food was amazing. It was kind of dark inside so the pics don't bring out the colors very well. I had both a fried zucchini flower stufffed with riccotta and chicken piccata which is chicken with capers and artichoke hearts in a lemon butter sauce. The waitress was also great. I totally recommend this place.

Erica and Unicorns

The other night (e:robert), (e:terry), (e:xandra) and I visited my cousin Erica's house around 4am after we all went dancing at DBGB's to see Mistanoize with Hoogs and Big Basha. Was a great night of dancing.

We learned all about her obsession with unicorns that maps pretty well to my brother. Remember when he was the unicorn (e:mike,41839)

This was only a fraction of the stuff she showed us. The ceramic unicorn with gold horn was made by her grandmother, my Aunt Helen.

Paul and Terry's Wedding

I spent so much time this weekend working on the website ] for our wedding. I wanted to invite people via website to save trees and to make to it way easier for me to keep track of the responses. The thought of having to keep track of lots of paper letters sounds like a nightmare when the website can just export CSV files with the details and I can reference and invite people right from my phone. The hardest part was collecting all the emails of the extended family members. Still working on that.

I was really surprised that google maps has a walkthough for hamlin house

Expensive Junk Shop


The contrast between the first junk shop and this second junk shop was amazing. Even with their 40% coupons, a disposable St Patricks hat cannot cost $19.99.

For that price I could have bought a St Patricks statue at the bascilica.

Cheap Junk Shop

While touring around south Buffalo we ended up at a junk shop. It was probably the junkiest junk shop I have ever seen and I'm pretty sure it was also located in a defunct funeral home. The products were like the outcasts from amvets. It made me actually think maybe the people on horders had a point when the try to save every last little piece of junk because it might have a value.

For real, there is a pack of 50/46 plastic cups. For the price I can't believe someone counted them.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
