Ha, hoping I'll get onto email lists myself before it comes to that.
(One of them has now given me a glowstick on two (2) separate occasions.)

Raved out kitten. In a party hat.


In other news, BU getting more fit - I can eat so many things now!!! Small downs to needing to find enough things to eat.

BU mebbe making friends with my coffee peeps :). Bonding has been assisted by their hiring possibly the nerdiest man in the world. We get to take turns trying not to laugh when he totally nerds out:

"So, here, I'm brewing the recent WORLD champion winning aeropress brew. <Some nerdlinger I don't remember> just won the WORLD championship with this brew last week. You really should slurp it quickly, so it aerates and hits the back of your tongue <slurps very loudly, every sip>. Here, would you like to try it?"

Wtf, there's an aeropress world championship? The coffee was shite (even he admitted it, so it wasn't just my inability to slurp correctly when trying not to giggle at everyone behind him pissing themselves). He carefully wrote the specs down in his little coffee notebook and classed it as a fail. Never fear, he is persevering :tallyho:

Ahahaha, nerdy nerd man apparently conditions and trims his (full) beard every day. Keepin' hi'self stylin'.

deviant wrote:I <3 aeropress....

I eat sandwiches pretty much every day. That doesn't mean I think there should be a world sandwich championship...

In other news, glowstick man kept texting - mainly random, inconsequential questions. A 3:1 vote among my mates deemed this a bit fucken weird, so words were had*. Fuckit, guess I'll have to find out about these parties some other way :?


*Matter of fact ones, which seemed to go okay.

Not saying I'm not! Tbh, I have absolutely no idea how anything works. I was beginning to wonder if a bunch of random text messages is how people get to know each other these days...? Erred on the side of caution since I wasn't really into it regardless, but still felt mean.

In other news, I am planning on asking beardy nerd man whether he thinks coffee may be better taken via a neti pot. This will no doubt lead to marriage and happily ever after :retzielikes:

BU 112 days until I have to teach again! Don't have to dress like a grown-up for months and months :D

Yes, that long of a break is taking the piss a bit. I will be crazy in t-minus two weeks.

Heh, I'm glad they are at least vaguely entertaining. They are excellent for those times when people try to ask about whether you've met anyone winkwink. "Lemme tell you about the last boy who got my number..."

Finally, a bizarro story to send straight to the pool room:

At my local bar, got talking to the hipster guy sitting next to me. Slicked back hair, Raybans, black skinny jeans. Random conversation revealed that he rides a Harley (dirtbike kid growed up). After making fun of him for a while, the bar ticked over into zombie-weekend-amateur-mode and he suggested we go for a ride to escape the dickheads. Cue cruising around the neighbourhood at 3am on a warm summer's evening, completely not in motorcycle clothes (skirt, singlet, no helmet). Dropped me at home (I may have saluted) and we parted ways without so much of a suggestion of exchanging numbers :retzielikes:

There was a mention of ex-gf, so at least into birds.

I dunno. I liked that it was a random story that was just ridiculous, without overtones of anything else :angel11:
