Hay gais! My work schedule is kicking me in the ass. Alkdjjksal. I leave too early to post and come home too tired to think, and so instead stare dolefully at my screen and download things. Like the Bioshock soundtrack! :D

Speaking of which, as anyone who has chatted with my over the past week knows, I bought an Xbox 360 and an Xbox 360 copy of Bioshock.

Things I have learned not to do: finish the game I spent far too much money on the weekend I bought it. Why.

Totally worth it, though. Every penny. Now I am ridiculously tempted to buy the copy of Atlas Shrugged I happen to know has languished in our local second-hand shop for the past eight months, so I can make fun of Andrew Ryan with a solid basis in his ideology. I'm on my second run-through, and I must warn you: when playing it, be thorough and read all the diaries, otherwise the story will make absolutely no sense. It is like FFVII in this way.

Mildly spoilery babble. )

Very, very spoilery babble. We're talking Snape on a plane turning out to be Dumbledore's father's insomnia-induced alter ego, here. )

It is an awesome game and all of you must play it at some point so you can prompt me to write fic for it. However, I understand if you wait until the price goes down, since my bank account is still whimpering from the blow.

OKAY SO YOU GUYS WITH THE MONEYS I NOW HAVE (BECAUSE I HAVE MONEY NOW YOU KNOW) I WENT OUT AND DID SOME STUFF.

This stuff including the buying of:

Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid ('Lemony Snicket')
Reaper Man (Terry Pratchett)
Guards! Guards! (Terry Pratchett)
Beast Wars Season 2 (NOW I CAN WATCH CODE OF HERO AND TRANSMUTATE WHENEVER I'M FEELING TOO HAPPY)

The ordering of:

A Darkling Plain (Philip Reeve) It should arrive in about two weeks! If any of you yahoos so much as think a spoiler in my general direction, I will find you when you sleep.

And the watching of:

PotC:At World's End (Which is probably the most ridiculous movie I've seen in a while, but who the hell cares, man? Pirates! Also it was awesomely over-the-top and er, why am I finding everybody in it hot now?)

I am kinda missing my lj friends! Fast food wage slaving is crushing my soul and also making me peculiarly productive. My giant head TV series concept did not need a soundtrack, but it has gained one. And an intro. And some episode premises.

BASICALLY:

"Entertaining a notion, like entertaining a baby cousin or entertaining a pack of hyenas, is a dangerous thing to refuse to do. If you refuse to entertain a baby cousin, the baby cousin may get bored and entertain itself by wandering off and falling down a well. If you refuse to entertain a pack of hyenas, they may become restless and entertain themselves by devouring you. But if you refuse to entertain a notion - which is just a fancy way of saying that you refuse to think about a certain idea - you may have to be much braver than someone who is merely facing some bloodthirsty animals, or some parents who are upset to find their little darling at the bottom of a well, because nobody knows what an idea will do when it goes off to entertain itself." - Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

To that end, it is time again for the one-sentence meme.

Give me a character (or a pairing, or a non-romantic relationship, or a theory, or anything you like, really) from a fandom (er, preferably one that I'm familiar with. Crossover if you must), and a theme to go with it, and I'll write you a one sentence fic. Repeat as many times as you like.

Okay, so.

The vast majority of people that come through my drivethrough window are perfectly normal. A number of them are also jerkknobs, but this is to be expected (and endured through the use of my mantra, it being, "Paycheck...paycheck...paycheck...")

There are, however, occasional moment of WTF.

Such as, for example, the woman with a baby kangaroo wrapped in a towel in her passenger seat.

And the man who drove up with his arms and legs dotted with blood.

And the woman with a tissue clasped over her mouth, who never spoke and handed me her order typed into her mobile phone.

They are usually kind enough to arrive right when I'm feeling particularly wrung out and/or homocidal.

Maybe I should start a tally.

(Less weird but more cheering was the man who, very politely, clearly and slowly, set out a complicated order, apologising at every pause, and, when I thanked him, explained he'd worked at a fast food outlet for five years in exactly my position.)

There are several things I did not anticipate about (wo)manning a drive-through window.

One of those things is the disconcerting number of dogs. Frequently they are poking their noses over the shoulders of their owners, sometimes they stare at me, deeply unimpressed, from the backs of semi-trailers. One woman had a small fluffy puppy in the crook of her elbow. She was in the driver's seat, the other arm at various times driving the car, finding her wallet and scratching between the puppy's ears.

As they give me money and I give them change, I occasionally wonder how wise it is to hand these drivers flimsy bags full of generally meat products past the noses of their often large dogs.

Fortunately, that's not yet in my job description, so I can at least finish my shift without wondering if I've indirectly contributed to our city's appalling road death toll.

I kinda feel sorry for the dogs, though.
