- An actual “Feejee Mermaid”, thought to be “over 300 years old!!!” (I LOVE THAT PEOPLE TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE THIS SHIT.)
So today was the first day in Austin and we went to a sideshow museum. Got my picture taken with Bub the zombie. Saw a sword-swallower and human lightbulb/freak perform. Held a hissing cockroach. Bought an octopode mug at Book People (the largest independent bookstore, which is sorta what I imagine heaven to look like). Had delicious vegan ice cream. And oggled much gorgeous manflesh covered in tattoos at the Whole Foods Market. Oh, and it was 90 degrees all day.
And I sorta never want to go back to Illinois now.
