They laughed at me for wearing cargo pants, until they needed somewhere to put their lobsterphone. Now who’s laughing. Checkmate.
(I was unable to find this for sale anywhere, BTW, but you can’t say I didn’t try.)

Working in a bookstore, it frustrates me to no end when I see that customers haven’t been bothered to put the book back with the rest of the title, rather placing it on the stack of books next to it. I mean really, is it that hard to put it back on the pile you took it from?

Pretty much my experience every time I try to move out of retail. People roll their eyes at my resume, deflect when I ask about a possible interview, and it’s obvious that non-retail employers think nothing of my potential.
Contrary to popular belief, I didn’t take a week off. Last week’s post was eaten by Tumblr Beasts, but it was “Weekend At Bernie’s”. I’ll quote from Twitter for the day:
“Damn bloody auto-refresh. Movie Night: Weekend At Bernie’s. Mildly funny, very ’80s, too much cocaine. 3.5/5. i.imgur.com/KNaIjix.jpg” “Spent too much effort writing the review in the first place to do it again. Deal with it.”Anyway, tonight’s pick. Roll on, two.
The Big Lebowski isn’t as shallow as it pretends to be. Underneath a story of a guy who really just wants to bowl with his friends, there’s a near-classic mystery adventure happening. Under that, however, is a guy that just wants to bowl with his friends. There was a little too much intrusion by the second story that I couldn’t enjoy the first, and not enough that I couldn’t ignore the first either. It’s left a a weird sort of black hole, like when a popular show focuses on its side characters for an episode, while you catch glimpses of the main characters’ regular shenanigans. It could just be a trick of the mind, but if you told me that Jeff Bridges was born looking 60 years old, I would instantly believe you, and deny all proof to the alternative. Speaking of mind tricks, the dream sequences were rather well done, even if “Kill da wabbit” was playing in my head for most of it. Overall, as a cult hit, it’s something to experience. Make it a rental, leave the purchase alone. 3.5/5.
what the fu-
This is in Celsius btw. Upwards of 120 F.
I’ll make it short: Movie Night for this week was going to be The Bucket List, starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. I saw “was”, because the disc I received from the rental place was damaged to the point of unviewability. As far as I’m aware, two men develop cancer, meet up in hospital, and die in a skydiving accident. Great movie, 12/Orange.

Aussie supermarket retain robin here! Unfortunately I have this complaint made at least 10 times per shift on various items we have in the store because customers don’t understand that sales run from Monday to Sunday each week, and change the next!
