I spotted Portia, a hairdresser, while she was outside taking smoke break. I loved her nonchalant attitude and the small details that turned a plain, all-black uniform into something memorable: ripped (and cuffed!) jeans, an off-the-shoulder top, and a big pendant necklace. Her tattoos (so ubiquitous in Tucson—I love it) added a nice touch, too, […]

Aka the Dead Animals museum. Whatever. Let’s talk morality another day… For now, pictures! (FYI: this trip was part of Holly’s and my “Discover Tucson” series. It’s not really a Zócalo Hannah thing, but more of a hey-whaddayou-wanna-do-on-our-days-off thing. Part one was the M.T.D.E., part two was the un-reported-upon trip to the San Xavier Mission, […]

So y’know how some people are all “the world’s gonna end if Romney gets elected!” and some people are all “the world’s gonna end on December 21st!” and people used to be all “Obama is the Messiah and will fix everything!” and other people still are all weirdly and endearingly optimistic about December 21st like […]

On our way to BICAS, my friend Sarah and I passed by Ozma Atelier. Intrigued, we decided to stop in once we’d picked up a rental bike for Sarah. At Ozma we found owner Jane (looking absolutely fabulous) and a veritable treasure trove of designer and vintage clothes. There’s also a little gallery (aptly named […]

You might remember skorts. You might not. Honestly, I don’t really care either way. All you need to know is: business in the front, party in the back (one of my friends made that mullet analogy… Jessie? It was a good one; I liked it). So, skorts. They might not be coming back, but since […]

Electoral systems in this country are just messed up, straight up. I mean, everyone knows that the electoral college is a silly relic that should be discarded, and, c’mon, can we not all agree that it is ridiculous that you can only vote for ONE margarita for the World Margarita Championship’s “People’s Choice” Award? Unable […]

OK. This might just be me, but y’know those sort of projects—be they restaurants, artistic creations, street festivals, zombie poodles, what have you—that make you think, Wow, who the hell was cool (or crazy) enough not only to come up with this idea but actually pull it off?  Now, I’m not claiming they’re up there […]

I went to eegees. Then to Mt. Lemmon. Then to the Tanque Verde Swap Meet where I took no pictures (for some inexplicable reason), but where I got to practice my Spanish (and Arabic!) and buy: tons of candy (mostly tamarind and/or chile flavored, of course, with a healthy dose of mango tossed in), a jar […]

What are you gonna be for Halloween? I’m gonna be Jasmine. Cuz she’s a badass and blue is a pretty color and her feet are a women’s size three, just like mine. Also it will be fun to confuse everyone because they’ll be all, “But you’re wicked blonde and you don’t look like Jasmine at […]
