Plus! Eric Adams Watch!! Items of Interest!!!
I don't know if this is weird to admit, but I am a fan of moss. I would love to visit this store. Did you know there is a Japanese mascot, Marimokkori, who is a moss ball? With... balls. As in testicles. I wrote about him because I love him and my mum read my newsletter and told me not to write about moss balls again, ha ha ha
Nobody in Arizona should be complaining about other city's politicians.
The moss fellow is inspirational. Cool man. Another terrific read. Thanks so much.
Eric Adams is a strong contender for "Most Unintentionally Hilarious Politician."
He has used this line on several occasions: “All my haters become my waiters when I sit down at the table of success.”
Other than a rudimentary rhyme scheme and a heavy-handed metaphor, what does this even mean? Very excited for more of these gems as he tries to secure the 2028 Democratic nomination after four more years of consistent faceplants.
"More dolphins, fewer rats" is my new mantra.
Have a wonderful vacation! And the stories today were superb! You are such a good writer. I felt like I was right there seeing all that moss! And I may buy some moss artwork one of these days!
When I remember that NYC had Rudy Giuliani as a mayor, I think you've come a long way; love the Eric Adams Watch! About the Moss Guy: at first, I was reminded of artificial flowers, but when I read that he creates each piece sort of like a painting, I loved it. BUT -- Anne -- stores dedicated to chopsticks? Pencils? SALT??? I hope we'll find out! 💖
Let's get to it (1) Enjoy your vacation (2) Love the moss man's A/C drain (3) moss as art is pretty cool (4) Eric Adams is the gift that keeps on giving (5) Enjoy your vacation
I love moss though I’ve never heard of preserved moss, must check out the Moss
Boss. Sounds like a moss wall hanging depicting a t-shirt wearing dolphin is in your future.
Also, I’m immediately going to start using the line, “my haters become my waiters when I sit down at the table of success.”
Have a great trip!
I don’t even know where to start 🤣🤣🤣 but I do know I need an I ❤️ 🐬 NY tee and some moss, asap! Have a great vacation, Anne!
I looove moss!! I foraged for some during a hike and made a couple attempts at live moss terrariums during the pandemic which was fun but didn’t last. The only live moss plant I have right now is actually embedded in a large rock. Along with my zz plant, it’s outlasted everything. Might not make it all the way to that store, but I admire the art the owner is making.
Anne, I went to the rubber stamp store! As luck would have it, I also love rubber stamps and use them for thank you cards or gift messages. They do custom orders too! Haven’t thought of any ideas yet but you’ll be the first one I tag when I have it.
As soon as Mr. Jasari admitted that he killed every house plant he ever encountered, I was SOLD. MossBoss is on my bucket list!! Thank you a thousand times for a Cafe Anne that is primus inter pares! Have an excellent time on your interesting vacation, and here's a link to the radiation detection emergency medical management site in case you are exposed while you're there: https://remm.hhs.gov/civilian.htm
"Preserved moss doesn't need sunlight or water—just an occasional dusting."
You think right here may be the secret to the Mayor's super-powers?
Wait. The moss art he’s dusting costs a hundred and twenty bucks??
I love moss! So glad to hear someone is being creative with it.
Honestly, I've never really thought about moss. But I've killed a lot of plants, so maybe moss is something I should be thinking about. As for Eric Adams, I just adore that quote about haters becoming waiters at the table of success. Is he good Mayor? I don't know. Is he a treasure? Yes, he is! Have fun on your vacation, Anne!
