    Apologies for the upcoming text wall, but it's just something I wanted to talk about.

    I cooked a panini for a customer today. When I handed her the food, she turned around and accidentally dropped half of it on the floor (for the record, we serve them sliced in half, hence why only half of it fell) along with the salad on the side. She apologised profusely and offered to sweep it up. I swept it myself since... well, it was a slow day today to be honest, needed to keep myself busy somehow. The thing that made me happy is despite the panini half falling on the floor, she ate the whole thing anyway. I know, GROSS and I certainly don't condone eating food that's been on the floor; I even told her she doesn't have to eat it just to make me happy and I'd happily spend another ten minutes making another one. She told me that she was really hungry anyway (even her two friends were heavily questioning it) but in comparison (I'm sure many others reading this who work in the food industry will know what I'm about to say), there are many customers who leave a lot of their food untouched for seemingly no reason which is annoyingly wasteful. In this instance, it would have been perfectly understandable but she ate it anyway, as gross as it is.

    I love this job sometimes.

    Tiny Pop showed "Stranger Than Fan Fiction" earlier. Not only did they do it properly, not squishing or talking over the end credits with Quibble's monologue... but it was shown at exactly the same time as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade over on BBC1. Okay, I seriously doubt the scheduling was deliberate, but it made me smile anyway. :)

    I got accepted for a 2 year professional trade course in everything carpentry.

    I've made stuff as a hobbyist for years, now I'm getting to learn all the tricks of the trade with a guaranteed job afterwards.

    Lil beastie stayed still for enough of a fraction of a second for a non-motion-blurred photo!

    She says thanks again for the big bendy purple tube as it's basically her favourite place :3

    Though she has this odd habit of pouching a load of poos and depositing them in there!

    Glad to hear it's well-used and well-loved.
    Aw, she's just being tidy. Good lass. Or those are the ones that need digesting again. Hammies are delightful that way...

    The BBC's John Williams Prom. Incredible to think that all of those iconic pieces were written by one insanely talented man.

    It was a fantastic show! I have no musical talents, so people who can compose such things and the musicians who can play it always blow my mind!

    Responses to a comment on Facebook.
    Was linked one of those "describe x but only with emoji" games.
    I can't stand all the fuss over emoji lately so jokingly played the party pooper with
    "I'd rather gouge my eyes out with a 200yo toenail of dubious origin"

    The replies to it have been keeping me giggling on and off all evening.
    More entertaining than the actual game

    I'd like to see someone try to express that with emoji.
