You felt the damp texture under your hand as you wiped down a booth’s table and seat. Your ears filled with toddlers crying, conversations, people slurping milkshakes down loudly and other teenagers making jokes, thinking you couldn’t hear them.
You work in a small 50’s themed diner in New York, with your friend, (Y/F/N). You two had been working there so your family could afford for you to go to a school for children ahead in their academics. You both were insanely smart, but if you told yourself that you would have to work in a small crappy diner to get into more advanced classes, you would be laughing your butt off.
My legs are keeping me up so I’m making use of the time. I’ve sold two scarves over the past week and a half, and it’s making me think my etsy store idea could really go somewhere?
So, here’s my question to you: what items would you buy if I opened a store? Right now I’m making scarves, beanies, and mug cozies. I wouldn’t mind making other items (shawls, satchels, etc.) if I knew they’d sell.
So far items include:
Scarves in block colors, Hogwarts house colors, SMH colors, and the fibonnacci number sequence
Cup cozies/beanies in block colors, possibly fandom-focused too if there is an intetest
Are there other themes/colors you think I should include? If so, what colors should I try to coordinate? What would be items you would want to buy? Any ideas are fully welcomed!
In 2012, months before the sale to Disney, Lucas announced a new Star WarsTV show called Star Wars: Detours. Not content with having some of the characters in Star Wars be ridiculous CG caricatures, Lucas enlisted Robot Chicken’s Seth Green to distill his epic saga into a series of farcical cartoons. Think “stormtroopers complaining about the Death Star’s lack of toilets” if you want an idea of the level of humor going on here.
The show was meant to have a Seinfeld-like setup, with all the characters hanging out in Dex’s Diner, which you might recall as the bizarrely inappropriate ‘50s-themed restaurant from Attack Of The Clones. Just think that through for a second. Every episode would simultaneously remind the audience of both a better show and possibly the single worst part of the Star Wars universe.
So every year my school has a mandatory 50s/60s themed swing dance and today was the swing dance. So I’m dressed up in a leather jacket and pretty much look like a greater from Grease or something and I’m dancing with my friend who’s partner ditched her. My friends has never seen supernatural. So we’re dancing, and suddenly a very familiar, painfully sad song comes on. Twist and Shout. I just stop dancing and look at the band. Because here I am, dressed in a leather jacket, on a THURSDAY of all days, at a 50s/60s themed dance. I had to excuse my self to go into the bathroom and cry because it’s Thursday, I’m wearing a leather jacket, the weather is beautiful and my heart was ripped open and torn to shreds by gay porn. My friend thinks I’m crazy.
