Goodwill is a refuge for cat-wear lovers (cat sweaters, cat galoshes), for taffeta enthusiasts, and for houndstooth scavengers. There’s the occasional miss, like…

My 5 Hour Wait for the Sexiest Form of Nourishment on Earth

My journey, from the airport to Tokyo’s queer district to, FINALLY, Sushi Dai at Tsukiji Fish Market The only piece of advice I could remember about the Tsukiji Fish Market was if I spotted a long line I should make my way to the back of it. It was 4:45am and I had walked two hours…
