I'm going to miss Coffee Boss when I quit

Gotcha! :)    (polly justice)

"Thank you and keep up the good job and KEEP SMILING AND GIVING IT YOUR VERY BEST SERVICE!!! :)"



I sent the guy an email to ask him all professional like to give me more money, and it was pretty successful. But I'm starting to wonder why I'm only now noticing that this 60+ year old is actually a cartoon dad.

  • He plants excess seasonal decorations all over the cafe for every season. This summer includes a giant pink sail with an attached cat toy bauble placed so close to the door that it keeps hitting customers in the face.
  • During the unnecessarily two-hour long quarterly staff meetings, Coffee Boss insists on buying excess amounts of cookies and pizza so that there's enough for seconds and triples. And also leftovers to stick in the fridge for our breaks.
  • The recent opening of a Starbucks next door put him into a dour and foreboding mood. Just say, "Oh wow. A Starbucks, eh?" and he'll get this grim look on his face, like we're about to brace for a meteor impact.
  • If you're unlucky, or lucky, enough to have him around on your shifts, he'll hover just out of the corner of your eye as you prepare a drink. As soon as it's handed over, he suddenly appears next to you and gushes to the customer about how great you are, and "oh look at that latte art isn't it amazing? Gee, saltysoil, the subtle care and attention you put shows MILES of what a great human being you are :)" And ffs none of the shit that comes out of his mouth is disingenous or not embarrassing.

It's either cartoon dad or he is the embodied spirit of friendly cartoon neighbours.

So I sat down and watched Attack on Titan for a couple days.

Everything I assumed was completely wrong. Gonna make a draw thing about how completely off I was, because I was really really off. Also, I didn't expect to be so angry nearly every episode. I want season 2.

I was going through my drawing files, looking for mostly blank canvases to re-purpose since there's no sense in not wasting available white space. Otherwise I end up consolidating multiple files via copy and paste AUGH. Total fun.

Anywho, while futzing around one of these old drawings I can barely remember, I accidentally spewed out what I imagine Profesora Chorizo Trenza, Dr. Salchicha's mentor figure looks like.

• She ties her thick and flowing locks in a braid as a method of making sure she never kills an enemy and potential ally in a fight. kind of like how the legendary Pepperouni Hamshin had a butter knife forged DULL WAYS

• Her signature strand technique is the Follicoil

I think I'm actually giving some serious thought as to where a very meta shounen tale of action hero food people with bdsm undertones might actually go lately :|a

rest of that sketch fileCollapse )

In between dying and working through two very different shops' xmas atmospheres, I needed to call up my best friend Hallmark. Except they charged too much, so I broke it off and met up with a reliable Carlton.
this is what you are getting, select internet mail pals :U

So choice.

Just got to figure out what to last-minute decorate them with by yoinking one of the many excess cards I will never need probablyCollapse )

I got this.

Even got the author's permission, and now I'm prepared to mortify the world and be an official member of podfic fandom! Yay!

And I'm totally into it, and reading the shit out of this fic while I record it with Audacity in the background window. I pause for a breath and alt+tab myself there to see how long I've been essentially talking to myself for.



what

Whoa. That can't be right. If my mic is broken, that'd really, REALLY suck!
Maybe I should check to make sure the usb cord is actually—

Wait a second.



Oh no.

Oh hell no.



FUUUUUUUCK

Dear Social Samba,

I just want to be able to scrape off all my personal information, cookies, sessions, whatever and just make a clean run of that teen wolf hunt game. It would be nice is all, not to have those weird freezes or whatever. Just saying, because I kind of really, definitely, love all this extra meta I'm getting.

oh god i'm actually playing that thing. i can't believe I made a separate facebook for this because i don't want irl folk to ever know.

BOOM!!!!
This is my first week off since about the last time I posted.

Catching up on the internet is going to suck.

To Do By Next Wednesday
 • Update that portal kink archive. Oh dear.
 • Scan sketchbooks and figure out whether I want to tumblr, dA, or crosspost it.
 • Limit all that to an hour a day after class & a couple hours on the weekend.


So tired a;dsgahoigfvolbn
