Wow. Today was insane at work. We did something like $1500 in the first four hours of my shift, which is little more than $6/minute. That's pretty ridiculous seeing as our most popular menu item is $5. THANK YOU HARVARD FOR HOSTING A NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL DEBATE TOURNAMENT. APPARENTLY CHEESE AND CARBS MAKE GOOD FUEL FOR SPIRITED REPARTEE.

I wouldn't know. I'm allergic to dairy products.

Still, it was funny having random high school boys try to flirt with me for a free cookie. I prefer this to older guy who tried to flirt with me yesterday because he liked my tattoo. It's kind of cute when a 17 year old from Florida tries to smile and talk about how it is cold and be charming. It's not so cute when the 40-something guy asks me outright "Do you have a boyfriend?".

Erm. Anyway. I took this pic the other day on the way to the dentist. I thought these cars looked like knights, swords wipers at the ready to do battle with snow that never actually came in a meaningful way.



Oh, and there is a small sporting event going on right now, as you might know. The 33rd America's Cup, taking place in Valencia, Spain. I love boats.

Wait, you thought I was going to talk about the Olympics, right? Well, there is that. Which reminds me, I wrote an Olympics-related Merlin fic a while back, but I HATED THE ENDING because I copped out of writing porn. So, eventually I will own up to said work of writing, but NOT UNTIL I FIX THE ENDING. I should probably poke around for a beta if I'm going to go whole-hog, though. Hmm.

I actually do like the Olympics. Canada's a cool place, too. I dig it there. I once planned on competing at Spruce Meadows but it didn't pan out. Sad face.

I get you about the 40 something guy. The other day a 50 year old-ish one asked me point blank if I was uninhibited...

The young guy chatting about the weather sounds sweet though.

I think I may have read this Olympics fic of yours. At leats if I'm guessing right. If it was the one I read, it was lovely. And PG-13 is not a cop out! It's a choice based on mood ;P

Haha, yes...teenagers trying to be bold are kind of cute, much older guys not so much.

If you're thinking of the fic over on the kinkmeme, that was me *blushes*. It was the first fic I'd ever written, which I thought was kind of ridiculous (AU! Slightly porny! What?) so I'm not sure if I find that funny or fun :P

Thanks for support, though, and for the v-day gift. I've never had one of those before!! I was so excited :)

Yes, that was the fic I was thinking about. I really, really think you should own up to it. It was cute, in character and had a setting I'd never seen before. I understand little of most sports, but I find soprts fic marvellous to read as I'm sure others would.

You're very welcome. The hugging bears were calling to me...

LOL at forty-year-old skeeving - I worked at a classic car and plane museum over the summer (I KNOW right?) and I used to have to man the metal detector at the fake concorde check-in...and like EVERY day there was some charming 60-year-old making some witticism about cavity searches when he set it off.
Guh.

I worked at a classic car and plane museum over the summer Seriously? That's kind of awesome. I mean, a lot of people get jobs at bookstores or whatever, but that's much more original. Did you learn any useful and/or random information about classic cars and planes?

Wow, erm..body cavity search jokes. YEAH THAT'S VERY CREATIVE OF YOU, OLD MEN. Funtimes :P

ahaha, believe me, the knowledge I gained was limited. Mainly because I spent my entire working weeks dressed as a 70s air hostess behind the concorde desk.
Dear lord the humilliation.

omg those cars! :D

WAS THIS FIC AT THE KINK MEME? 'cause I think I've read like all of them =x

was it the one with the golden medal...'cause I think that one ended with sexytimes but it didn't.

OMG STOPPING SPECULATING NOW.

Why do older men think that that's ok, though? What happened to subtlety and cuteness?!

Yah you got me and my PORN FAIL :P I totally need write the Adult Pay Per View ending of that thing. Poor Arthur really did need consoling, after all. I totally have an expanded backstory of my Olypics! Merlin-and-Arthur too, but that's just me and my odd brain. I like it when they play sports a bit too much, I think.

I dunno what happened to subtlety and cuteness. This guy also asked if I had any other tattoos that weren't visible. Way to be classy, dude.

They looked so determined to fight off the elements. It must have worked because we barely got any snow that day :)
