brianphive: jeffpeff: Theodore heard of Youth Lagoon before Max. Max heard of them after Cindy, but Cindy heard of them before Don. Who’s the bigger asshole? That would be “biggest” asshole, not “bigger”. So I guess the answer is “me”.
New experiences every day
I had about the worst day in my life today. I also cried because I was that stressed at work. I do have a great boss that I really love work with. All of the issues today were either made by higher level executives or imposed by the mentally insane. When life gives you lemons, invent a combustible lemon. Time for margaritas. Enjoy life ya’ll!

I'm american as fuck (lunch edition)
I worked today at another one of car rental branches in the area. The manager for the location was off today so it was me and the Russian chick who regularly works there. Since I hadn’t bought any lunch supplies yet I got lunch at a chain Chinese fast food restaurant. Walking across the street was challenging because it was a 6 lane boulevard with a large median, luckily there was a cross...
The super kinky adult activities I did tonight
Didn’t bother to turn on my car stereo, the Slurpee on the drive home was consumed in silence. Applied to consolidate my student loans to get a discount on interest.
Ever heard of that indie cave?
It was super underground.

kottke.org: Chinese firm to build world's tallest... →
jkottke: Chinese construction company Broad Sustainable Building has announced plans to build the world’s tallest building…in just 90 days. When finished, it will be 220 stories high, 10 meters taller than Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. This may sound impossible, but BSB has been constructing buildings quickly by making parts ahead of time and then just putting them together on site. Prefab skyscrapers....
Still at work
I’ll be getting home at 10:30 pm. I need a 24 hour china buffet.
Today at work we ran out of cars.
That is a pretty stressful time for a car rental location. Especially when other branches keep sending you customers unannounced. Apparently having no cars actually means we have all the cars in the world.
I’m taking an official hiatus from IPA beer. There are too many other good beers out here to spend all my time drinking hop monsters.
Video project from Charleston is about 50% 63% complete. Laid the ground work for some book projects. Researching the research/laboratory notebook. The book of a working scientist.

katybutler: I am so right there with you. Allan, how did I not know you liked Kristian, I’m sensing a loss of some great conversations here. This is literally my favorite song in the world and also one of my favorite things in general: Sounds like the start of a very good CL missed connection ad. My favorite song of his was from an adult swim singles collection they did last summer....
My parents are really proud of me.

Notes from this week.
All main streets are to be renamed Red Lobster blvd. There will also be cheese biscuit court. The boulevard will have drive through hurricane vendors. I’ve been around my parents entirely non-stop since saturday in hotel rooms or my apartment. I’m going on a brewery tour this afternoon. I will drink all of the beer.
