So I was at work today, doin' my usual thing, when these two little girls come in. They had to be about 8-9 and they were soaking wet from the rain despite having their brollies. They spent about 10 minutes wandering around the shop, until I went up and asked what they were looking for. They asked where the cake and baking stuff was, so I took them there. A lot of it is on the top shelf, so I helped them get the brownie mixture down, and let them off the 10p short they were for it.

"Wow, it makes 16 brownies!" said one of the girls. "We'll never eat all that!"

"I'll take one off your hands for you." I laughed. I make this kind of joke all the time with customers who say they're buying too much.

The girls suddenly grin at me. "Okay! We'll bring you one!"

"Hey hey, I was joking, you don't have to do that." I said back, feeling a bit silly now. They were only little kids, I felt bad asking for one of their brownies. "I'm only here til 6 anyway, I'll probably be home when you're done."

"I'll bring you one anyway!" the girl insisted. "Bye!"

So I went back to work and forgot about it, assuming I'd never see hide nor hair of them again.

5:30pm, and the door opened. It was one of the girls, holding a little white bag. "I brought you one! It's nice and fresh."

I could have cried, it was so nice of her. After all the moody looks, the rude customers, the thieving teenagers, this one little girl made me feel appreciated and happy to work where I do. It's possibly the sweetest thing I've ever had a stranger do for me. ;u; I grinned like an idiot for the rest of the shift. And even though the edges were a little burned, it was the best brownie I've ever eaten.

So Nena dragged me out to the pub and there was a pub quiz on so of course we took part. Our team was us, her parents, and her parents friends, and we were all very sure we were going to lose, but meh, what of it, it's for fun anyway. We still put money in the pot for the winning team to collect though. Sorta raises the stakes.

I can't believe we picked "Foghorn Leghorn" as a team name. Granted Nena's mum misspelled it and it ended up as "Froghorn Leghorn", but that's besides the point.

The quiz had loads of rounds, and Nena and I owned the Children's Books round, tutting and rolling our eyes when they asked "What is the name of Ron Weasley's sister?" It was a lot of fun, though I beat myself up over not knowing how long the 100 years war lasted. It was 116 years, not 114, you idiot! /headdesk

And in the end, all the papers were collected up and we all sat around our tables (well, Nena and I were sharing this one really comfy chair but we unfortunately both have womanly hips so one had to sit on the arm rest while the other got to sink into the squishy) drinking and eating sweets until the question guy started reading out the places from last to first.

For ages, we thought he'd forgotten us. He got to "second place..." and didn't say our name, and we were about to check if we'd not heard him, when he suddenly went

"First place and the prize goes to... Froghorn Leghorn!"

We screamed and lept out of our seats, bouncing around gleefully and clapping our hands hand high fiving each other.

Of course now I've had a night's sleep over it I kind of realise how silly it is to get so worked up over a pub quiz but WE'RE PROUD OF OURSELVES OKAY. \o/

So that was fun.

/goes off to check her tags

New Dr Who

Excuse me sir Doctor, but you seem to have run off with another soon-to-be-married woman.

Anyone else seeing this pattern?

Also: did I just see Van Gogh in that preview? FUCK YEAH!

But yeah, I think I like this new Doctor. I definitely like this new side kick. She's goddamn Scottish! A random bloke shows up in her house and her decision, as a 6 year old, is to make him a fry-up!

Awesome.

Also, loving the red hair.

Must resist urge to write Hetalia crossover.

Edit: just watched preview all the way to the end.

GUN.

HE HAS A GUN.

NO. NO, WAIT, WHAT. THAT IS AGAINST THE RULES, THE DOCTOR DOES NOT HAVE A GUN.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

I'M 18 ALREADY
LET'S GO GET SOME BOOZE

HORAAAAAAAAY

THIS AIRPORT HAS INTERNET AHAHAHAHAH

Okay, so it went down like this.

Family got up at 9:30 and made our merry way down to Gatwick Airport. All is well, we board the plane after eating and F'n'Bs, and take off goes fine, in fact everything is fine for the next 2 hours of flight until-

TUUUUUUURRRRRRRBUUUUUULAAAAAAAANCE!!

AAAAAAAAAHHHH!

It was terrifying, sudden, out of nowhere, there was lightning outside the window and we were being bounced around everywhere. My ear was exploding in pain so bad that the whole side of my head ached. It was absolutely horrible and it was only 20 minutes later that we were told that we couldn't land in Corfu. Because the landing strip was flooded by the rain.

So, you're thinking "Wow Pidge, your life must have sucked from that point on." You are mostly mistaken, my friends. Though there was an initial FML moment; they said we'd be landing in Thessalonica to refuel and discuss plans. So decent sucked. Still, mainland Greece. Could always walk back. Got to know most of the other passengers sitting in the back of the plane economy class with us, debated Plato, blah blah. THEN...

Athens!

They sent us to Athens, put us in a FIVE STAR HOTEL FOR THE NIGHT gave us FOOD AT 2:30AM (though, in British time it was only 12:30) and BEDS FOR A WHOLE NIGHT.

DID I MENTION THE 5 STARS ON THIS PLACE? DID I?!

OMIGAWD.

I STAYED IN A 5 STAR HOTEL IN ATHENS.

FUCK YOU CORFU.

Well, I say that, but I'm sitting in an airport once more waiting for a plane to Corfu, since the weather has cleared. Sort of. The English really do bring the weather with them everywhere, don't they? It's all overcast and stuff. Not like we didn't just escape a country that, statistically, is overcast 53% of the year. *shrug* Oh well. It's still 26C outside.

Over all, despite people being grumps about this whole mess, it most certainly could have been worse.

<3 Pidge.

PS. Prepare for art dump when I get home.

So so so so

That was awesome.

Really REALLY AWESOME.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the circus troupe, but, come on, it's the servants of Phantomnhive here. Finny and Maylene and Bard and TANAKA OH MY GOD EVEN TANAKA WAS BRINGING THE PAIN.

I believe that explosion may have woken Lizzy, however. (How weird is it to type my own name in reference to a character? Very.)

FINNIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

YOUR MASTER DOESN'T DO ANY OF THOSE NASTY THINGS TO YOU AND NEITHER WILL I BECAUSE I LOVE YOU.

Okay, so it's 2am and I have the serious munchies, laters.
