Oh, Snap!: Epic Comics

No time for a full entry! Look at this pretty picture!

Whenever there’s a menu change or when menus get worn or dirty, our hostess will print up new ones and dispose of the old. Usually I’d claim them and use them for kindling when I was on 1, but lately, I thought it would be great to draw a comic on them. Not only are they huge pieces of paper, they have great weight so I don’t worry so much about Sharpies bleeding through.

And so I created “Epic Adventures! (Of A Line Cook Wannabe)”… which are essentially slice-of-life comics on menu paper. So far I’ve written three of them, though the only one I bothered to take a picture of was the one I did on Superbowl Sunday. I should take a picture of the Epic Adventure I drew about Valentine’s Day, though. Coworkers especially liked that one. I haven’t drawn any more lately but it’s only because a good opportunity hasn’t presented itself to immortalized into a punchline….

Talk To The Hand

I’ve been having a little trouble getting to work on time lately. How lame is it that I have to leave my house at 2:40pm in order to arrive at work at 4pm on the dot? I kid you not. Even with my catching the express train, when I’m at the Clark/Lake station, there’s like 2 brown line trains to every green line, and even when both trains are due, the green line always seems to defer to the brown line. Come on, people, I have to get to work. Even when I want to come in just a tad early (like 15 minutes! That’s not asking for much, right?) it doesn’t seem to be possible. Sigh.

That said, I came to work on time today which is so sad because I used to come in so early when I was a prep cook ;_; Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I was on station 3 tonight, Elliot on 2, Katie on 1. Fun times! It started out a little mellow, and then got a little busier just when I was about to pick some duck meat. Two ladies got seated at the chef’s table (sigh) but it was just as well because they ordered a salad and some mussels and then I didn’t have to anything with them afterward and because they were sitting there, no one else could sit there either. Win-win? Also, apparently one of the women had something to do with media or something. Either in the way for some film-making gig, and long story short (with chunks of facts missing because I got this third-hand from Katie tonight… I know, I’d make a TERRIBLE journalist), apparently Elliot got scouted as some sort of HAND MODEL?! And apparently Elliot has really good-looking hands?! (I’m gonna have to take a good look at his hands the next time I see him.)

I have to admit I’m not surprised. Elliot’s kind of a really good-looking guy. He wears clothes like he casually walked off a shoot for Gap clothing. But that’s not to say I won’t rib him to shit about this hand modeling thing mwahahaha… *evil chortle* … I mean, until I hear the whole story. But still… heehee!

I want to post about other recent happenings, such as the Superbowl, new comics, how I burned my neck (so stupid), how my knife broke (so stupid), and a zillion other things, but I have to open tomorrow; little updates will have to wait for another time. I know: LAME!
