Alright, so I may have already set this picture as my profile pic on facebook AND the background of my twitter page but I just think it’s too great to not have its own post on City Mitten, too.

Remember how I mentioned my friend Laura and I got a picture with a panda that would be on the 3rd ward’s flickr page? Well, here it is, y’all. I think it’s hilarious. I showed a couple people at work and they were all like, “Is that Sad Panda?!” Hi-larious. Sad Panda is so famous. But as I said, no, it was not him.

In other panda news, my girl Susannah from SKT Ceramics emailed me and told me she’s misplaced the penguin she set aside for me, but no fear because she’s firing up one just for me and she promises it will be even more beautiful than the other one. I am getting it Monday or Tuesday and I am v. excited.

And my final news: I’ve been kind of sicky all week but I’d BETTER get better cause I have lots of Christmas shopping still to do and lots of festivities planned for the weekend. And it’s freezing. And still no snow. WHERE IS IT?

It’s another Wednesday Craft Day here at City Mitten! Last weekend I went to another craft fair with miss Laura Leebove. We joked that this should be our lives, going to different fairs every weekend. It’s so fun!

We went to the 3rd ward in Brooklyn early Saturday morning for their Handmade Holiday Craft Fair. The 3rd ward is cool. We had to go up a fire escape to get to the second floor, which was more vendors and a bar serving Bloody Marys.

So let’s see. It was a craft fair. There were lots of cool t-shirts and homemade cards and soaps and other fun things. Laura and I were looking at a table full of shirts and I looked up at the two dudes selling them and blurted out, “Wow, you guys look like Williamsburg!” I don’t even know what came over me, they just happened to be the BIGGEST hipsters I’ve ever seen. I mean, I see hipsters all the time but these two gentlemen took the cake. The one guy with the sides of his hair shaved and the rest of it toppled above his head knew what I was saying and laughed, while the moustache dude seemed slightly offended and said, “I don’t even know what that means.”

How do you not know what that means? Williamsburg = hipster. We learned that in kindergarten. You know what that means.

Anyway. I didn’t buy much because I was an idiot and forgot to get cash beforehand. BUT I did see the girl with the SKT ceramics again and my baby penguin was still available and I’m going to pick him up from her this week! I can’t wait to take care of him.

What else? I saw this guy wearing this AWESOME cupcake hat:

I wouldn’t exactly walk around in that thing but I think it’s pretty sweet that he does!

There was also a panda roaming around randomly:

I bonded with one of the vendors over how much this panda reminds us of the Sad Panda that hangs around lower Manhattan and that was profiled in a really sad video on Gothamist.

This panda, however, was not so sad and Laura and I got a profesh picture with him that should be on the 3rd ward’s flickr stream soon.

In other news, last night it did not rain and I was able to enjoy a lovely evening skating around Bryant Park. More on that tomorrow. :)
