Chicken... Breast

I cook too much chicken at my work... I got my start roasting chickens for a year. When i was 18, such a bad choice i thought. Then i realized it made me work as hard as i possibly could and even if my body was felt like cooked pasta i would find a way to push through and stay aldenté. Sometimes I have to think back to my struggles to remind myself exactly just how strong i really am... Sometimes.

The Bistro Burger

I make this burger almost all the time at my job. Its the only burger on the menu. The Bistro Burger... With Bistro Sauce, bacon, letty and toe-mate... fries, toasted bun, melted ched. Just to prove it ill snap a pic of all the burgs I make. Perhaps i'll post up all the hottest sellers?

Uncertain Future

Unknown is the future, all we can do is predict. Based on suggestions we make decisions that impact millions of americans. The business of making money off the backs of those less fortunate is being slowly phased out and replaced by automated machines. The search for balance is an ongoing journey. We've established many systems of control over the years. We phased out the ones that didnt work anymore and we made new ones that we could have more involvement in.

Having more people involved in the decision making process can make things more complicated. More variables to consider... Less control and a bigger crack in the system to allow corruption to burst through. As far as i know, animals don't engage in some long discussion about who should live where and who is worthy of this and who should lead who? These questions aren't asked from animal to animal. All animals live in relatively close proximity to one another. Insects, birds, fish and snakes and kangaroos etc. I know its hard to believe that such a a dense variety of animals can simply COEXIST, why can't we?

New Job... Part 3 the right tools for the job

I used the knives that were avialable at work for about 2 months and then I invested in a 7 inch mercer japanese knife with rubber handle. It made my job easy for a while... Then I realized... My knife is getting dull. I end up buying an even better knife... This time it's german steel. I love both german and japanese steel. Can't decide if either one is superior to the other. Both do the job very very well. I guess you could say the german steel is much better suited for heavy work loads and prepping meats... To be continued...

New Job... Part 2 The Dish Pit

This is where you prove to eveyone that you are a hard worker. You can show everyone the type of quality of work you can deliver. Sometimes it feels like it's just 1 dishwasher... Even though we've almost always had 2 dishwashers on hand.

I'm certain around 60% of the people living on earth have worked this job at least once before.

New Job... Part 1

I was unemployed for over 2 years... The walls were closing in on me and I was at the brink of a complete breakdown. Thankfully my luck had finally changed and I aquired a dishwasher job at the Courtyard Marriott. After washing dishes for 3 months I was trained to do prep and work the line in the mornings. 8 months after i was hired i became the new night cook...

New Year, Wise Blood

I've struggled greatly this past year. Both creatively and emotionally. Hopeless and forgotten I carried on as best I could. Little by little I was convinced I would never regain my humanity. Everyday felt more like a dream, a cloud passing by. Slow and steady I dissipated. I hoped that I would wake up with some optimism. Sadly nothing could take away this terrible empty feeling deep inside. Things have changed. I have returned to the working world and slowly I can remember what it feels like to be human.

I can see that struggle is necessary to shape our minds and strengthen our will to continue. In my case I didn't feel stronger or wiser during my struggle but only afterwards could I see the change in me. I should have used my time more wisely, I should have tried harder to see the other side of things. It's a new year and I hope to make the best of it. I must never descend into madness again.

Waiting for Halloween

For years I've wanted to be the Scarlet Spider-man, last year I finally did it and it was bitter sweet. I couldn't see out of the eyes and the ankle pouches were rushed. Just a few days ago I cut some eye openings inside the mask and viola, vision is excellent now! I'm going to have to remake the strap for the pouches and make/get a belt buckle. looks like I'm going be the Scarlet Spider-man again this year...

Comic Book Blood Thirst pt1

Comics comics comics! This post is long and all about comics! I've been going through this phase where I desire the things I couldn't have when I was young. For example, I've always wanted a large comic book collection and game collection and among various other things I would like to collect. Lately I think back and I remember this series called Bloodlines. It was an intracompany crossover that ran through DC's superhero annuals and concluded with a two-issue 'Bloodbath' miniseries. The antagonists were a race of monstrous xenomorph-like aliens, incorrectly described as "parasites", who killed humans for their spinal fluid.


I never had a single issue because my mom thought it looked too violent. I decided never to read a single issue. I flipped through a couple of them but never read more than a few word bubbles. I have a few scratched off my list but I still have a long way to go. I go to Frank & Son Collectible Show in City of Industry. Its a nerd swap meet. Its only open 2 days out of the week so when I go I have to make the most of it. Its very tedious work, I have to flip through thousands of old comics and a lot of them are just thrown in boxes without any type of order. Its very rewarding though once you come across a comic you've been hunting down. Stay tuned for more on my comic book blood thirst, for the next time I go hunting! Everything In BOLD is what I own.[1][2]
