My father's take on Arts students:

Dad: Oh, oh! Bright colours! *dances around* The transition of the bright colours of the rainbow has pulverised my brain!

And on historians:

Dad: *puffs on pipe* Yes, yes...I believe in what Einstein said.
Mum: Einstein wasn't an historian!

And before anyone yells at me, I'm half an Arts student who loves studying history.

PS. I still have no timetable because approval is still pending on a subject that I have met all the requirements for. GODDAMN YOU, UNIVERSITY! YOU'RE MAKING THIS VERY UNPLEASANT!

Why is Alloc8 only giving me a timetable with subjects I'm not enrolled in anymore, and I've pressed the 'My Subjects are Wrong!' button three times and it's still not fixed.

Customer: I want a regular coffee!
Me: Was that a small or standard size?
Customer: Regular!




Hahaha, my dad just said he'd order me a "pizza with the lot, hold the cow and pig."

How supportive.

Customer: I want a cupcake.
Me: Okay, was that the chocolate mud or vanilla mud cupcake?
Customer: The vanilla chocolate one.
Me: ...sorry, was that the vanilla or the chocolate?
Customer: Oh, um...the chocolate one. With vanilla.
Me: ...
Co-worker: *sniggers and puts a chocolate cupcake in a bag* Here you go!
Customer: Is that for me?
Co-worker: Yes, yes it is. It's yours.
Customer: I was just confused, the signs seem to be backwards!


Me: Two cappuccinos, one strong!
Gentleman: Thank you...what's the strong one?
Me: *sighs* The one with strong written on top. *at this point I see someone else making their way to the bar and realise they're actually his drinks*
Gentleman: I didn't want a strong one.
Me: ...did you order two cappuccinos?
Gentleman: Uuum...
Me: *checks coffee screen* Or did you order a flat white and a latte?
Gentleman: Oh yeah, that could be it.


Customer: I want a coffee!
Me: Okay, what kind of coffee would you like?
Customer: Mug!
Me: Okay, but what type? *points to menu board* Cappuccino, flat white...
Customer: White!
Me: Yes, but...
Customer: In a mug!


Customer: I just thought I should let you know, the coffee tastes...wrong. It tastes bad.
Me: I'm sorry to hear that. Are you able to describe the taste it all, so we can...
Customer: *edging away* No, no! It just...it tastes bad.
Me: I understand, but if we have an idea of what seems wrong about it we could...
Customer: It was made in a line of coffees, maybe you just forgot to change the beans?
Me: ...okay, but...
Customer: I don't know! *runs away* I just...it's not right!

Maybe we forgot to change the beans? What does that even mean?

The other night I experienced (for the first time)...Fake Meat Night!

I was introduced to this, the holiest of traditions, just the other week when I was invited to partake in a meal(featuring the aforementioned Fake Meat) at a lovely little restaurant called Enlightened Cuisine.

For those of you who haven't heard of it, Enlightened Cuisine is a chinese restaurant that serves all the traditional meals, plus a few more. The only twist is that all the meals are vegetarian (or vegan, should you have a vegan present). And while it doesn't taste exactly like meat (I would have been slightly suspicious if they'd managed to perfectly replicate the texture of chicken), it was amazingly close. And amazingly delicious. It was a trippy experience, actually, watching the vegan try and decide between chicken dishes. Although it must be said that wasn't quite brave enough to try "red meat". (To be perfectly honest, neither was I).

I recommend it to one and all, it was very yum!

In other news...I've been working. The end.

In even more news...no, wait, that's it.

Whoo, Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you didn't drink too much and can remember most of your evening (a couple of blank spots here and there are acceptable).

For those who weren't able to remember so much...at least if it was a bad evening you won't know! Hope you didn't feel too ill the next day =(

I haven't made resolutions so much as...not made resolutions. Part laziness, part realisation of how futile it would be.

Random translation errors found recently:

The instructions for a rubber keyboard from Jaycar:

Material will keep pollution and germens out.

And another for a game machine at the shopping centre near my house:

Instructions: Put balls in the win hole.

Happy holidays, children!

Hope the new year brings all sorts of wonderful things for you. Like a naked David Tennant covered in chocolate.
