My Favorite Pokemon Is Flaaffy

It's like a Dratini but pink, way more cute and not slug-like (you call rthat shit a dragon-type?) Also, it does not evolve into a big stupid rorange thing much later on. in b4 original 150 it's not even 150 is r151 you're all just fucking around with pokemon for the nostalgia rwhich is lame as fuck

I'm doing pretty good. I failed my physics final, but I still passed the course with a B- because the course is weighed stupidly. The final was funny shit, I finished in about an hour and it was almost all giberish. I made up a bunch of formulas too because I didn't know what I was doing. Somehow I still pulled off a 45%. Fucking markers, THIS is why morons get degrees. Anyway, everything else was B to A- so my GPA went from 3.18 to 3.24. cool.

In case you missed the last list, my job fucking rules now. I work at a headshop where the worst part about the job is the occasionally sketchy tweaker who comes in looking for a crank pipe or something, but then I just tell them to get the fuck out and it's all ok. I spend my days playing with grinders and throwing the fake penis from the synthetic urine kits at the piercer who operates upstairs. Sometimes I mop and sweep too, I guess.

The job is nice because I still get to be a keener and nerd out about certain things like the pharmacology properties of the legal herbs we sell and educating customers on why metal pipes are bad for you.

Did you know a lighter's flame burns at 1400C on the outside and at 800C on the inside??! I mean, unless you have a pipe made of a metal heavier than brass you're basically smoking metal. Yuck.

A bong's thickness also has no bearing on how strong the glass is, the glass sealant does. That's why ROOR bongs are superior, and therefore more expensive. You can easily tell where the weak points are in a bong or pipe by holding it up to the light to see if the walls are the same thickless all over. Usually the middle of the base is thinner.

I think I'm in a bit of trouble though, my boss just texted me and was all "Did you let people smell the shisha? All the seals are broken and now we can't sell them!" And I mean, those are displays so I figure we don't sell them anyway. Plus shisha smells really good. Oh well, I'm new I guess.
Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II

Some guy I sold a bong to left me his number with a note that says "Hi I'm Xavier :) Call me sometime. I like someone with brains and all open views of the world". I get asked out a fair bit, leaving your number is pretty oldschool though. Not sure if I should call and give this dude a chance because the note just seems like general flattery. Plus I hate terms like "open mind" or "open views" because it means virtually nothing really. This dude looked like he was in his early 30s too so I don't know. Hm

A cute guy with a ginger hipster 'fro (the kind where the front part is the largest) walked into the store wearing a Sunn O))) t-shirt yesterday. I initiated a conversation and joked about how the store doesn't let me play them. He apparently used to work at one of my favorite tea shops and would play M&D at closing to clear everyone out. I'm shy and awful at indicating interest so I hope I see him again so I can snag a date. Then again, my last boyfriend had a ginger mullet and also loved drone metal. FUUUUUUUUUCK

Going to Mount Eerie on Wednesday, I heard he's kind of boring live though. Oh well. Shows are frequently more of social events for me anyway.

To this day, the best answer I've heard to my favorite question, "Why didn't you kill yourself today?", is one from my friend Justin who said, "There's pumpkin pie in the fridge at home." We were on a train home and he'd apparently just felt like he'd failed his engineering final. Good guy.

Anyway, I think my grilled cheese with ham is burning. My smoke detector is also out of batteries so it's beeping like a little beeper bitch. Bye Sputnik
