Follow Friday – Oto’s Market

9 Nov

Today’s post features photos from the fascinating Oto’s Market in Sacramento which we visited during our trip to see our friends Jacob and Ben. We left with shopping bags full of adorable porcelain bowls, packets of ramen and dashi, and some bento goodies that I hope to find a home for soon. Oh, and octopus-flavored chips. Can’t forget those.

Have a great weekend!

mallelis “Ann would have made a wonderful First Lady. Sitting in some of the many White House rooms. Sleeping at night; often waking during the day”

Rosenthaltweets It would be kinda badass if Romney ended his concession speech by riding out on Ann’s dancing horse.

PhilipMichaels Mitt Romney: “And now I know why it is you humans cry.”

davepell It’s not a time to gloat. It’s a time to heal and come together as a nation. And I’ll get to that after about 78 more tweets.

SarcasticRover BREAKING: Internet-Browser Refresh Buttons.

danforthfrance Look at it this way, Romney. Tomorrow you get to fire A LOT of people!

Caissie I wonder if Mitt will allow himself to at least silently mouth one swear to himself. I let my kids do that when they’re hurt.

embeedub See how he’s digging in his heels & petulantly not acknowledging reality? That’d be what a Romney administration would have looked like.

hosea24hours To Donald Trump’s credit, his one night of Twitter ranting has been more entertaining than all 12 seasons of The Apprentice combined.

    I fully expect to see Isobel making Zorro do the sideways pony, and by the end of the month. I will begrudgingly accept a photoshopped image, but would prefer a video of it really happening. Sure, it’s pretty much impossible but I can want.
