Most Interesting Thing That Happened Tonight

While walking to work, I stumbled upon a shiny object, and, being human, picked it up. Turned out to be a homemade DVD of some sort, titled, "Oil Dat Fat Ass Up." I shit you not.

Tagline could've used some work, but, to be fair, I have to compliment the graphic artist. Wish I'd snapped a photo of it before one of my coworkers (immediately) snagged it from my hands. Coulda, shoulda, woulda.

In this case "woulda" = made a nice addition to the restaurant's "Lost and Found" section.

Shame, really.

So, this one's been looping through my head lately, mostly for beat reasons but also because I recently heard The Decemberists' worthy cover on the radio; just a sweet tune, no? Absolutely nothing to do with the post, except for the part where I was attracted to a shiny object.

If you ever get close to a human
And human behavior
Be ready be ready to get confused
And me and my hereafter

There's definitely definitely definitely no logic
To human behavior
But yet so, yet so irresistible

Björk, "Human Behavior"

Haven't quit yet!

But honestly, my new clientèle? Not so terribly interesting. Going to have to work on that. Maybe once they warm up to me a little? This blog sucks without stories, and makes work so much more like, well, work! I got into this business for the money, I stayed with it for the camaraderie of a professional kitchen, and the ever-changing cast of characters.

So far, though? Feels different out there than it used to...

The offered me the office, offered me the shop
They said I'd better take anything they'd got
Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock

The Clash, "Career Opportunities"
