Day Fifty-Three

-A woman informed me that she was straightening her bills before handing them to me due to the fact that she was a little OCDC, which, as is common knowledge, is the most hardcore of metal illnesses.

-I had to scan a glittery, bumpy, pickle Christmas ornament. Why would a guest purchase this? Why would a store sell this? Why would a company produce this? Why would a benevolent god allow this?

-I may or may not have broken a register, twice. Higher-ups at my store read these stories. This is all I will say on the matter.

-As she was leaving, Cat Lady stopped to wave and smile at me. She is known to latch onto a cashier, never leaving their side whenever they are on a shift. I believe I may have been selected as the next Chosen One.

-The All-Seeing Baby has returned to tempt me with answers that lie just beyond my grasp, eyes wide and knowing as ever, nibbling thoughtfully on their pacifier.

-”If you get your tonsils out, you can eat ice cream,” a boy said to his brother, displaying a great deal of wisdom. “I can eat ice cream right now,” his brother responded, displaying a great deal of common sense.

-God seems to have found a perfect way to torment me, as I now find myself constantly having to, with a straight face, repeat the number sixty-nine to people who are entirely oblivious to the wonder of it all.

[ Happy Holidays!

As Christmas Eve is upon us (and Hanukkah starts tomorrow!), I hope that all of you will have happy and safe holidays, and if you do not celebrate, I still hope you’re having a good time and are healthy! 

Ludwig is dressed up as the Christkind**, Gilbert as 19th century Santa Claus*!

For the occasion I thought I might share some information with you about German Chirstmas! 

Keep reading

Santa Baby

Before I tried to let anyone in
I waited till Christmas
You found and set my fire works off
My foundation burned first
Only to tread on dirt beneath you

Christmas lights twinkled
Tears fell ran out my windows
You excited my feeling of love
You exposed my soft
Then gutted and put me on ice

Throw my unwanted parts
Back Into my lonely world
You took what you needed
And left me bleeding knowing
What of me was good for you
And what was left was trash

Was I a good girl to you?
knowing what was hidden under wraps
Do I know why you are gone
I thought we all were defective
So why did my husband leave his wife?

We went exploring in my attic
And saw the skeletons in my closet
I saw the fear look in your eyes
Even as you said you were fine
I never found where you hide the Christmas pickle


Under the twinkling Christmas lights you’ll get grilled pork and colourful pickles, sugar coated candy apples and roasted chestnuts (not many left of these), a small bloke playing carols on his harmonica and pancakes with feta cheese, chimney cakes with everything and mulled wine… no need to remind you of everything a Christmas market can offer. The market in Cluj old town is no exception even if you only manage to reach it almost at closure time. What comes unexpected is, eh, beer. In winter, on the street, right. A delicious Sikaru Porter from the Ninkasi craft brewery of Bucharest, full of toasted malt with a hint of smoke (or was it the pork?) and bitter and hoppy and everything right, cool to know also Romanians can brew good stuff.
