FICTION FRIDAY: Just One Look

So in deciding to write these to prompts I found, I'm rapidly realizing that I don't have nearly the amount of prompts I thought I did...and the ones I do have aren't as good as I remember. This is irksome, and I'm going to be on a quest to fix it. BUT! For now, I've … Continue reading FICTION FRIDAY: Just One Look

New Projects in the Future

So a while back in this post, I started talking about a slow-burn project I was thinking of. (Because of course, the best time for new ideas to spring up is between November 1-7.) I still poked at it a little during November but not a ton, and now that December is here and I … Continue reading New Projects in the Future

Memory vs. Reality, IRL Edition

I'm jumping back into a topic I was talking a lot about earlier, but it's been a while, so now you've forgotten how manically I was posting about Pokémon there for a while. ...no? You didn't forget? Well poop. Sorry? In any event, this is something I came across back when I was relaunched into … Continue reading Memory vs. Reality, IRL Edition

BOOK REVIEW: FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S: THE SILVER EYES by Scott Cawthon and Kira Breed-Wrisley

It's not often that I get to combine two of my loves into a single post. But lo and behold, bless Scott Cawthon and his desire to tell stories, because he's helped create a book in a world with better lore than the next six games (besides UNDERTALE) put together. Needless to say, this review … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S: THE SILVER EYES by Scott Cawthon and Kira Breed-Wrisley

Tales from the Café: Only in the Movies

Time: Saturday, 11:05 pm It was way past when we should have left, and yet... And yet. The mopping still wasn't done--though Dana was almost through with it--bits and pieces still needed to be picked up, and I swear the huge party we'd been working with all evening had only left something like seven minutes earlier. An … Continue reading Tales from the Café: Only in the Movies

Tales From the Café: Out of the Mouths of…Customers?

Time: Friday, 3:15 pm I may not have any of my own, but I know if you hang around kids long enough, you're going to hear some crazy stuff. The Internet has lists of creepy or clever things kids have said with absolutely no prompting. I'd put it out there that it's not just kids … Continue reading Tales From the Café: Out of the Mouths of…Customers?

Tales from the Café: Are You Sure?

Time: Wednesday, 1:15 pm. I've gotten my fair share of bizarre requests in my time working, both here and at other customer service places where I've been employed. I've had odd food questions, I've had seating requests that don't make sense, I've had complaints and compliments and all kinds of oddness. Most of it doesn't … Continue reading Tales from the Café: Are You Sure?

Tales from the Café: Squeaky Clean

Time: Monday, 2:16 pm I rubbed at my eyes, enjoying the brief respite from the lunch rush. The rushes had been getting later and later as time went on, so despite the fact that normally we'd be done with the busy part of the day by now, I wasn't taking my chances. The second I … Continue reading Tales from the Café: Squeaky Clean
