I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
They had a thing on their Facebook page, saying to email them and tell them what would make you a good taste tester.
Well, it was the day I gave blood. And I might have been a little light headed.
I sent them a huge long rambling email that started with a Ralph Wiggum quote and spiraled wildly out of control from there.
And that’s them accepted me. And are sending me free coffee to try.
I left the house without a morning coffee, and while I might be convincing myself that I’m actually chipper and normal, the first cunt who bothers me will likely unmask the daemon lurking just below the surface.
Morning ritual. Getting the #coffee on. (Taken with Instagram)
and the outside world sounds so blustery and rainy and cold and…
Normally, I make a coffee just after 8, then come back to bed to drink it. But this morning, it’s so cosy in bed, I’ve not bothered. Which means, I have no drive or enthusiasm or energy.
Now, there is a coffee shop on the way to work….but they are quite often not open until after 9am ( I start at 9 ) even though their official opening time is like 8:30 or something.
So, by being lazy today, I run the risk of just not getting a coffee at all. I don’t know if I can last the day without some coffee. I might start taking a mug into work. And some coffee. And a kettle. And some milk. Meh.
I swung by at lunch time and it you can smell the smoke from fucking miles away. But, it seems to be mostly cosmetic. Something was left on overnight and burnt a bit out, but it’s mostly just smoked out.
So, once they replace the kitchen, and get rid of the smoke smell, they’ll open again! YAY!
I think my coffee shop has burnt down.
I know there are other coffee shops in this town, but none of them, not even Su Casa, could make a coffee like Beanscene. Sure, their pizza and nachos were terrible to the point of being hazardous, but by God, the coffee…..
With any luck, it’s just a set back, not a full blown closure. Maybe even a renovation ( i know some of the other branches in other towns were getting a make over ).
I don’t know if I want to live in a world where I don’t have access to a Beanscene coffee.
Continuing my quest to try a coffee from every takeaway in Ayrshire, i present you with Cafe Ginger. I’m a firm believer in getting what you pay for. It doesn’t bode well that this only cost £1.50 (Taken with picplz.)
