The Albanian chef who overstayed his visa is on duty at the cafe now because I'm popping next door to play chess with my neighbour (my son lol) and drink a few beers. His girlfriend is out on a work social night and he's enjoying not having to listen to talk about fashion and furnishings haha

Pint of absinthe please barkeep. Yes. A pint.

The missus is being unreasonably lovely at the mo so i need some seriously out of the box thinking! 😉

We've got no alcohol licence at the cafe but if I charge you for an overpriced hipster coffee then you can have the 'sinthe 'on the house' but if you are sick you clean it up...a pint ffs, that's rocket fuel!
...reckon your missus is wanting a new bag or jewelry or something lol


Here's some overpriced hipster coffee


It may or may not taste terrible as i have two left hands and did not meassure correctly the amounts, and as you can see i tried to draw a heart but it came up with some rare heart dissease :|

that would be $30

My random pictures of the day lol...
First job this morning, repainting this window, boring as #, and fiddly, I can't imagine why anyone would choose to be a painter and decorator as all they do for a living. I would actually die of boredom.

Had a phonecall from the guy paying me for the job at 11am saying the sea is flat calm and he wanted to go wake boarding so can I meet him at the harbour to drive his speedboat, of course I said yes, as I've done many times.


A few pints afterwards in the sun, what a good day, felt like summer even though it is October


Looks so nice and rainy lol, sounds like a great way to spend the day

Maybe those people had to chose between that job or scrubbing toilets lmao, i would also die of boredom doing things like that or doing house work of any type

At beginning of this year i wasnt getting any allowance so i had to get a job at a convenience store, could barely make it but it was fun to see and talk with lots of different people, i like jobs like where you can work but talk to people and make friends. Did not last long as one day a cop came in to buy stuff and he immediately noticed me, asked if my parents owned the store and got suspicious of my situation, had to quit to prevent getting them in trouble, i have no work visa he he

I've been an illegal worker in a country before, I don't care, I am my own country lol
I haven't left the UK for a few years but I guess it isn't much different.

when i got here i had nothing to do and was out on the streets most nights until 3/4 am, at the park met lots of friends that were runaways too or just lived crazy lives, some of them worked since they were 12 or so, selling candy or stuff on the streets and some of them were construction workers and their fathers were the same, i dont think they ever had licenses to do work, or had to pay taxes. but it seems like nobody cares if they have licenses or not, they always have work and nobody ever asks

it is funny here how i can be out there with no id and they just tell me to get home or take me, we got in trouble so many times and nothing happens after they take us home

but if i work, participate on anything political or go to a student march that turns into a riot and get caught then i will be thrown out of the country, visa permanently revoked lmao

Dear CCG, I'm getting really, really depressed. What with the circus of the Kavanaugh (why don't they just stop the show) and Brexit (why don't they stop the show and just get on with it).
To calm me down I'll have a mint julep from under the counter and put a nice calming song on the box like Voodoo Child by Hendrix. Thanx.
Do you like that, thanx, I'm 69 next week and I'm starting to do shortened words like the "kids" do.


You can also say tnx or thx, for whatsapp and txts


Have a nice weekend guys! < 3

You don't have to show ID or even give your name to a cop in the UK unless he/she has reasonable suspicion that you've committed a crime.
I've refused loads of times, not because I had anything to hide, just because I can refuse.
Britain is the land of the free compared to the US lol

Morning.

I have a craving for Pork Pies this morning.
My wife failed me miserably this morning.
My daughter failed me miserably this morning.

CCG, I'm counting on you!
Oh, and they've got to be Taylors Pork Pies!

Still open? I've got to get away, the missus is doing her usual christmas pickled onions. She does nets of em every year, the house stinks of onions.
It'll soon be time for the chrissie cake making. She makes slabs of them every year but it's ending in arguments as she's feeding them on my best brandy instead of the cheapo Spanish brandy I bought just for that job.I wouldn't mind but she gives the stuff away. Give me a greasy spoon coffee to calm me down. I'll let you pick a cool track on the box.

Her voice! And they are local band?


Just checking in for a bit, on a crazy trip for a few days now but i wanted to post this song i found from a band named Crystal Castles. The band is gone i think and that's sad, the song is so cool. I wonder how they did not get more famous :/

Other countries have lawless cops, specially around this side of the world.

I can't refuse because they already as soon as they see me figured out i am not from this parts, don't need the trouble

Also they would be extremely happy if they, you know, 'got one of the weirdos from that other country". Just imagine the headlines and the outrage! "Foreign student turns out to be a spy! You won't believe what she was doing when caught!" And i was working at a convenience store lmfao!

Move review of "Predator" lmao, as we don't have a Thursday Movie night i will just post this here because i found it hilarious

First i must say i have a 100Mbps Internet connection now, and yet i kept getting the movie freezing a lot! FFS, we were watching in very nicely except for those time, but i did get some very nice and funny screen captures of those times lmao

Unfortunately i tried to upload them to ATS to show you but none of them upload except one, and i think this is one of the best anyway lmfao "Get to the choppa!" so now i know where the meme line came from ha ha hahaha ha hahahahahahaa



I wish i could have uploaded the rest, but it seems those are blocked or my internet is still miserable, :/

Right before the "choppa" scene the Terminator kicks the gun out of the latina girl, yes "let's avoid any possible help i really need right now"

Then once he gets rid of the only other gun they have he asks her to get to the chopper which he never said where it was :S lmao, i guess she already knew where to go? She has a GPS implanted in her brain


Anyway we had a movie night and we watched "Predator", next week we will watch "Terminator" lol, and also a friend suggested "Wayne's world" but i don't know, i wanted to watch "The Wall" because of the videos posted here but i can't find it anywhere, and it looks like is not accepted much on this side of the world.. Oof

So anyway the movie was wonderful but well, i'm stil thinking about things mentioned above and how in the end i think an atomic bomb blows up and how the guy can survive that just by running? Too much funny stuff with that lol, otherwise i really liked it, event though the Native American guy with the big knife did not had a good death like he should have, just a "screams far away and dies" scene, which i hated because all other guys had a good die scene, so meh with that one scene

"Lamb" are not local but we have mutual friends, Lou's voice is as beautiful live as it is recorded.
Lmao at doing what Mexican cops say or foreign spy!

I like the Crystal Castles track, will search a bit more of them.
...and every 'Arnie' movie is funny, I can never take him seriously. Total Recall is hilarious and cheesy, but a good watch.

Lazy Sunday for me, few drinks with a mate now just getting ready for Monday, might actually do 5 days this week working, not looking forward to it but gotta pay to play so has to be done. I've got a brilliant tactic now, my son who lives next door starts work before me so he knocks my door when he leaves to make sure I wake up lol, if I don't answer he'll come in and shout at me to get up.
