watcha doin'?

pickin' up my food from off the ground.

when food is really tasty, you pretend that it's impervious to cooties.

and then you eat it! uh doy...

also, for some reason, the Pakistani, and Cambodian people I ran into today at the Kabob and Boba Tea places both think I look like their kind. I think it's my, "brown skin, I'm talkin' 'bout my brow-ow-own skin... and slanted eyes."

The two with the swirl design. I drew guidelines and used a scissor. I free-cut the rounded corners. I once made one that had braided colored strings and a plastic Santa head on top, but plain cardboard works fine.

Nice.

I’m a heathen and break my books’ spines.

edit
lol guess the duct tape book.
► Show Spoiler
Also I wonder how many people just couldn't stand to see pictures of my bookshelves and all the broken spines. New for-profit online Topping venture? Maybe.

I mean I'm kidding. Maybe.

The post is too short huh?
I confess the remark about not going to work all week piqued my curiosity. Do you have a boss unusually tolerant of occasional drug benders or do you now count yourself among the unemployed?

Remember when you were a kid and pretended to not study for exams/quizzes and it would impress the stupid kids? I did go to work. Just lied to seem cool.

Did it work? :lol:

edit: Hey Senseye, at the time I worked for family friends and could call off whenever without recourse tbh.

Gals/guys, been wanting to become famous recently. You see, I have all the skills needed to be a viral sensation it's just I can't settle on a final idea to launch.

I'm buff. I have a strawberry-shaped booty cheek birthmark. I can juggle. I can voice act. I can animate. I can sing. I can dance around naked. I can sing naked. I can bee-bop and rocksteady with the best of 'em (naked). I can find people like a spook. I'm really weird. I'm good, I'm so good - the best- right?

Thoughts/comments are welcome.

Maybe I should start by printing a logo on stickers and trying to sell those? Maybe do an NFT? Just gently circulate them about then clandestinely release viral videos with those logos at the end of each upload. Then people will start to make the connection. I'm so at a loss for ideas mis gentes. :vcool:

I'd better order a huddle from the robot/android hoard, "HUDDLE, NOW, THIS THREAD, STAT!"

Naw, the symbol looks similar to the one on them book spines from those lousy J. R. R. Tolkien failures, uh doy.
