Keeping Austin Weird and Wonderful

I felt like I had a mini-vacation today as we headed into the big city for lunch at Veggie Heaven across from the campus of UT. I was craving some veggie ham and we have enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Veggie Heaven is a great little restaurant. They put out boxes of cooked rice on a table next to the door so the homeless can come help themselves for some take-out.

After lunch we headed to a nearby crystal shop where I bought my opal back in the summer of 2008.

As I was browsing various rocks I could smell incense burning and was tempted to ask the young woman working there what it was. It smelled like pot. I picked up an unmarked stone and turned to ask her if she knew what it was, and I swear she was holding a burning joint.

She did not know what it was. But I bought it anyway because I like it a lot. I also bought txrad a Seraphinite so that he may establish contact with the highest order of angels, as well as seeing his life clearly.

We may have to take turns wearing it! It was worn to prevent snakebite during ancient times. Can't have too much protection against that!

Now I need to do some research and figure out what I'm protected from with the one I bought.
