i don't know what everyone else in my group is selling, but here's a list of a few things i'm bringing to the table. i'll try to post some pictures between now and saturday.
-magnets and postcards of a photo from boise pride '08
-matted 8x10 photos
-recycled pendant necklaces
-rainbow awareness ribbons
-possibly some wood pieces and a canvas bag or two
-anything else i can scrape together before saturday
so, obviously it's pretty much crucial that you come by our booth and spend lots of money on our fabulous "suggested minimum donation" wares. SMD because we don't want to have to deal with sales tax, but if anyone tries to low-ball us i will personally shoot daggers out of my eyes and slice them up into tiny shameful pieces. it will all be very reasonably priced anyway--tons of stuff under $10, some of it only $1. we'll also be handing out a brochure our group put together, diversity magazines, tons of literature from TCC and other organizations, and free condoms! be there!

the garden is pretty much all planted as of sunday. we planted a bunch more peas, carrots, spinach, lettuce, and some cucumbers, pumpkins, dill, parsley, rosemary, cilantro, pomegranite, blueberry, three tomato plants, and a whole ton of flowers. still waiting to go in are eggplant, basil, lavender, bell peppers, and a few more flowers.

my parents have again offered to send me on a trip after graduation. i wasn't going to push the idea after my mom lost her job, because even though they have plenty of money they're also plenty tight with it, especially in anxious times...which is probably why they have plenty. but since they renewed the offer i think i'll go for it. i'm trying to decide between three places: hawaii, belize, or australia.
each place has advantages and disadvantages...i'm familiar with hawaii and i love it there, plus i wouldn't have to bother with a passport; in australia i have free boarding and transportation with my aunt and uncle, whom i haven't seen since i was a kid; and belize would just be so goddamn cool. all three would be very long plane rides, and anywhere i go it might be a challenge to get enough of the right vegan foods. australia poses a danger because i'm smart enough to know that a lot of the insects and animals are poisonous but may not be strong enough to resist playing with them. i'd rather go someplace i haven't been a bunch of times, even though i love hawaii. i'm really leaning towards belize. i've been pretty stuck on the idea of going there ever since i watched a travel documentary about it a year ago or so.
wherever i decide to go i'll get some fabulous opportunities to use the new underwater camera! photography is such a huge motivator for me to want to travel. when i was looking through my mom's travel photos it made me itch...i mean, i can always find great things to take pictures of here in boise, but it doesn't even compare to tropical areas.

i spent half the day gardening and the other half taking pictures. i planted two rows of peas and a row of carrots, then filled a mini-greenhouse tray with cucumbers, lettuce, spinach, oregano...and a ton of other things i can't even remember now. i also started red peppers in little pots.
my bike ride was overwhelming. i was getting so overstimulated by the gorgeousness of everything that it was actually slightly uncomfortable at times. in some cases there was too much beauty to capture in a normal photo so i had to make some panoramas...
