    I bought a little desk fan recently.
    Absolute game changer.

    So, you know how Matenrou had a song called "meikyuu no tobira"?

    It's another game thing. It's always a terrible game thing ::mana::



    Nice theme music by Yuzo Koshiro at least.

    I have no twitter but someone should probably warn Kaya that Shingeki no Kyojin is one huge GOT-esque letdown and not to bother starting it.

    What a massive letdown that last chapter was!

    also I got a bartending job! It’s pretty cool, it’s at a barcade (we have a massive selection of retro cabinets and modern ones as well)

    Ooooh congrats! We have a few of those in France. One in particular, Player One, is wildly popular because of the decoration, weird cocktails (they use themed mugs and dry ice - like think drinking out of a smoking Rick head, or a baby bottle), and throwback events.
    Some precovid days you couldn't even get in the door because it was too packed.

    For me Shingeki turned sour the minute you find out what's outside the island (tbh I was expecting something similar, but a whole lot less lame and homage to WWII nostalgia).

    Ah! I love themed drinks, though I’m not much of a drinker anymore funny enough. We only serve cider so it’s not as complex of a job as I expected either!
    Unfortunately Texas pretty much never closed during the pandemic besides the initial lockdown and the massive freeze we had this past winter, so it’s all anything goes here. I still wear my mask to work though.

    This sounds like a very niche establishment, I have to say.

    Watch out for anyone wringing hours out of a single quarter on "1943", they're invariably up to no good :|

    We went to a cider bar yesterday, and they had a cider cocktail - pink cider, bourbon and lime, on the rocks.
    I don't like bourbon, but I was hoping the cidre would mask it. It did not XD
    It was still nice to stay out past 21h regardless. The French curfew was the most useless, nonsensical covid policy I've ever seen.
    All it did was force people to do everything between 10-17h on Saturdays and spread the disease more.

    OK so lol the twitter person who told Hora he gives off vegetarian vibes XD
    Being a vegetarian in Japan sounds nearly impossible because of all the hidden dashi.
    That aside I feel like he was all happy about eating hamburgers in New York at one point.
    But still hillarious. What are vegetarian vibes anyhow? My ballet teacher in university seemed to equate it to 'malnourished' or "anemic'.

    I see what you did there XD
    This person is probably a fan, a legitimate FAN.
    Not just someone who sticks around too see how long he's gonna be a Hefty bag monger.

    Edit so no double post: aaaand someone called me a vegetarian at work today
