I treated myself to corporate coffee house coffee-less drink and square pastry. I ate beef jerky for lunch. I felt productive at work. We combined our LOTR set with ninja turtles, dinosaurs, and pokemon.
I swam across the ocean. It was okay, but I am out of shape.
Then I went for a walk and it was nice. I pretended that I was walking in the Shire. I always pretend that I am walking in the Shire.
When I returned home, I popped open a bottle of Mike’s hard to see what it tasted like, it tasted pretty good, and then I popped the cap back on and put it back in the fridge.
I cleaned, but it’s still messy. It’s kind of like those sequences where you’re running down a hallway trying to get to the exit at the end, but you can’t get there because the hallway just keeps getting longer. Except with junk. I have too much junk. I am thankful at least for having cleaned up for Chris to move in, and having him keep the place pretty tidy when he was here. I can see that the floor exists and that is all that really matters now. That is all that ever really mattered.
Tomorrow is drunk art critique night. I didn’t publicize it a whole bunch, but I hope it will be a small and pleasant crowd.
Please please please sign this. KXL/the keystone pipeline xl is a giant detriment to the environment and all communities. It brings oil from Canada down to the southern us, and there is already another pipeline of comparable size being built that isn’t getting the same media attention (Flanagan South). The jobs it brings are short term and only really benefit the higher ups.
"Democracy is not a spectator sport."
Say no to big oil, corruption, greed, conservative republican bullshit, obama’s facade of environmental friendliness, and SAY NO TO KXL.
I brought that LOTR Lego set to work today. My co-workers were not entirely pleased, but they accepted it in place of the Big Ben set. To my delight, we were given three rings of power. But to my dismay, the rings of power do not think we are worthy and therefore refuse to change size in order for us to fit them onto our fingers.
To add on to the disheartening happenings of today, my coworkers and I had to postpone going out to eat ramen again, but only until tomorrow. I was sad about it because 1. I was excited about eating ramen, 2. I had things to give to my bffalo, and 3. I wanted to hang out with him, but he couldn’t do tomorrow. However, he later opted to set fire to a building and drown the streets in a sudden stampede of ents armed with furbies armed with razors so that he could join us tomorrow. What a good friend.
When I got home, I found the smoldering pile of ash that was once the bush in front of my home, laden with notes of overdue rent. I was immediately enraged and set fire to the bush in front of the office, as is customary for these sorts of things, because I had consciously handed my rent to the office assistant on Saturday (although now I am not sure that she consciously received it). To abate my rage and increase my health points, I went for a short walk. I must say, it was pleasant. Indeed! When I returned, I carried out the terrifying procedure of frying frozen lumpia (which came out perfectly, for once), and then painted. The more detailed I get, the less inspiration I have. Something that will have to be worked out with acrylic paint, tears, and the sacrifice of your vital internal organs (I am coming to collect them right now). Sweet dreams.
Oh gosh! ~*~*~ HEHE YAY I AM GLAD THAT YOU THINK SO. you might even say that i am adoreaBOWL. ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
THIS KIND OF FURBY
Nothing particularly interesting occurred—only one slightly odd thing and one slightly new thing.
The slightly odd thing was that I went to the mall. I might as well set myself up in a horrific cabin in the woods. I was there to buy a Big Ben Lego set for work. They were sold out so I bought a LOTR set instead. Hope my coworkers are into that. This may turn out to be an unexpected journey.
I used my brand new Costco card for the first time today. The aisles mugged me. Took all my money and left me with the shirt on my back and a six pack of underwear. I’ll meet those aisles again one day, but I cannot assure my revenge plan will go accordingly to plan.
i love you, too.
we just need… to organize somehow. :C do you have any ideas for where to start again?
More lasagna with awful fennel in it.
Ran in the downpour with my coworker. Unlike her, I’ve kept extra pants at work just for such an occasion. (They are actually in case I bike to work). But my feet were soaked. Moist.
Hung out with Joe. Went to Luis’ closing reception. Hung out some more. Hung out to dry. Hung out to ask why. Learned a little Chinese in preparation for the China trip in May-ish.
I woke up almost immediately today. This tells me that I am getting better. I can’t tell you what I am getting better at or else we might become competitors. Or simply remain friends or internet acquaintances. Either way.
There was more candy at work today, but with pizza and cake in addition. I believe that our company wants us dead, but is too passive aggressive to do the job right. Either that or they are fearful of our weaponized furby.
After work, I picked up a lot of delicious carbs for Aaron and I to partake in while catching up and having our occasional game night, in which I scream a lot as I watch him play horror video games. I suggested that some of the characters in Dead Space be sold as beef jerky, but Aaron thought it would not be a good idea. After careful consideration, I had to agree.
Waking was not as terrible as it has been for the last few months. Although, for some reason the only way that I can not wake up with a stomach ache now is to sleep with two pillows. And my neck does not like sleeping with two pillows. It has been telling me for the past few weeks, but has not yet put my foot down.
Work went by quickly today. So quickly that I heard the rush of time itself as our warehouse was sucked into what seemed like a horrific Space Mountain worm hole. You would think that it might be fun, but it was not.
We discovered that furby stays awake to plead for fun when it is left in the dark of a cabinet underneath a Doctor Who scarf and American Flag hard hat.
There was a lot of candy again. It has succeeded in keeping us temporarily complacent.
I came home and did more work, but not for work. I can never stop.
I painted today. It has been a long time. Oh, but I left my paint drying on my palette. Darn.
I woke up with a battery that died between my legs.
New useful processes were taught to me at work today, but none of it mattered because the gopher holes had been covered up, the animal crackers supply was diminishing, and my bff cancelled our long-awaited weekend plans.
My co-workers and I met up after work to discuss our new greeting cards business. (Does anyone know how to run these things? Do you have tips? Legal advice?) Goals and deadlines were set. Much laughter was given and received.
It will be difficult to balance work, a social life, HAHA BUSINESS, ArtC, and building up a portfolio (which I am worried about not having by the time I ask for recommendations). I am not sure that it will all be done in a balanced manner. We will watch time breathing.
Okay third time is the charm, not sure why this isn’t posting on mobile… anyway
Here’s to 30 min sketches
