Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 105: Zombies in Roosevelt Park!

Last week, Mr. E and I noticed bright orange flyers taped to light posts around our complex and on our mailbox cluster.  The flyer was an alert to the neighborhood about an event today in Roosevelt Park, the Carnival of the Dead, a new activity in conjunction with the annual Trash Film Orgy, which presents a series of "trash" films throughout the summer.  This year's programming includes such gems as "Dawn of the Dead," "Pink Flamingos," "The Thing," and "Showgirls."

This afternoon, I looked out our office window to see what was happening during the festival set-up and noticed a pink food truck that turned out to be Sweet Spot:

When Mr. E came back from the gym, he mentioned that this particular food truck offers cupcakes, so of course we had to go over and check it out just after 5pm, when the event started.  We came home with three cupcakes - a raspberry-filled vanilla cupcake for me and two zombie-themed cupcakes for Mr. E with special decorations:
