Ferrets playing inside a box of packing
Animals As Leaders - CAFO
So today I had a one hour induction and tomorrow I start work. That’s right, after a year of looking, constantly applying for jobs and hearing nothing back, I finally got a job. I can’t say how happy I am right now, thought I have to take my facial piercings out for work, but I think I’ll just keep chucking them in after work until I get my hands on some clear retainers. I should take them out all together as that’s what they want, but fuck that. I’ll just use retainers until someone notices and I have to fully remove them.
There was another job that I applied for that never came up and I am disappointed I didn’t get a chance to do it. I got the interviewed and I was put into the recruit pool, so if/when someone leaves they can call up and get a new worker. It was for working for the Metropolitan Cemetery Board in burials, meaning I would have been digging and preparing grave sites. The work would have been honest and I would be helping people out in a small way in a time of grief and stress, which would be a nice feeling at the end of the day. However, if I’m honest, I’m mostly disappointed because it would have been so damn fun telling random people what I do for a living.
"What do you do for work?"
"Me? Oh, I’m a gravedigger"
"Yep, dead serious, I dig graves for a living. And, uh, if you ever need anyone to disappear, for the right price, I might be able to help you out…"
1. State your name:
I seriously prefer going by my nickname, Loki. No, it’s not Avengers related. It’s been my nickname for the better part of 5 years.
2. State the name that your parents almost named you:
As far as I know, my parents knew exactly what they were going to call me.
3. Which of your relatives do you get along with the most?
My parents, I guess. I don’t really talk to the others that much.
4. What was your first job?
Working on a process line at a brick manufacturing plant.
5. Did anything embarrassing happen this week?
6. Do you miss your ex?
Yes, I do.
7. White chocolate or dark chocolate?
Why not both?
8. Do people praise you for your looks?
On the rare occasion, yes. But for the most part, no, they don’t. I’m a fat bloke that likes facial hair and apparently not that many people around me find that particularly attractive. Well, they don’t say anything or show it, at least. Shame, because I’m a rather handsome motherfucker.
9. What is your favorite color of clothing to wear?
Black, I guess, though camo clothing (which is a number of colours, I know) is a close second.
10. How do you wear your makeup?
I don’t really wear make up anymore. I did back when I was a major goth kid, but not so much anymore.
11. What are some of your nicknames?
Loki, Dr. Cannibalism, Lord Loki, Pirate, those have been the main ones.
12. How many bedrooms are in your house?
13. How many bathrooms?
14. Do you have a job?
Much to my irritation, no. The job industry has gone down the toilet in Australia and I’m often stuck in a rut of being over qualified and/or under-experienced.
15. Do you have a car?
I have 3, but I’d like to get rid of two eventually and replace them with another one. One of them, my ‘88 Mazda FC3S RX-7, is my project car and something I utterly adore. I would not get rid of it unless I had absolutely no choice otherwise. I have a bunch of plans for it and I hope to one day get it back on the road kitted out like I have in my head. I miss being able to drive it, it gave me a sense of peace and freedom I’ve been long missing from my life.
16. Do you work out every week?
No, but I really should start, once I stop being a procrastinating, depressed bitch about it.
17. Did you brush your teeth this morning?
I did not.
18. Have you ever kissed someone you never saw again?
Yes, I have.
19. Have you ever sung in front of a crowd?
20. What kind of bathing suit do you wear?
I don’t even own one. I don’t really swim that often.
21. Do you like your eyes?
My eyes are pretty spiffy, though I do wish they functioned correctly without glasses/contacts.
22. Do you think you’re pretty?
I wouldn’t say I’m pretty, but I would say I’m handsome as fuck, in a rugged, masculine way.
23. Who was the last person you talked to in person?
Housemate earlier this morning.
24. How much money is in your checking account?
Maybe $100, at best.
25. Are you single?
I have been for a very long time.
26. Do you want kids?
Maybe some day.
27. Tell me what your back pack looks like:
Don’t have one. I’ve got a satchel/courier bag thing though. It’s just a fake leather affair with “Piping Hot” on the front, which is a surf brand here in Australia.
29. Last movie you saw in theatres:
Predators, I think.
30. Are you dating the same person you dated last year?
I haven’t dated someone in nearly 4 years.
31. Has someone you were dating ever cheated on you?
I can only say with certainty that two of the people I’ve dated definitely didn’t cheat on me. Two of them definitely did and the other two I have nothing to confirm it happened, but I’m pretty fucking certain they did.
32. Have you ever cheated?
Yes, I did, a very long time ago. I was stuck in a situation where I didn’t know what to do and made a very poor choice on my part. However, I’ve grown up a lot since then and would not make that same mistake now. I’ve never been tempted or entertained the idea since.
33: Have you kissed someone whose name starts with a ‘J’?
Yes, I have.
34: What do you like to do in your spare time?
Lately, mostly just surf Facebook and Tumblr, watch episodes of TV shows online, apply for jobs and game. I probably game a little bit too much, to be honest.
35: Do you have a facebook? If so, would you add the person who you reblogged this from?
Yes, I do. We’re already Facebook friends.
36: What’s the cutest thing someone’s ever done for you?
For Valentine’s Day, my girlfriend at the time, Danie, drew me a portrait of Pikachu with love hearts above his head on this little rectangle of chipboard. I put it on my computer desk next to my mousepad and that’s where it’s sat to this day.
37: Who was the last person you texted?
38: How many boyfriends/girlfriends have you had?
Uhhhh, officially 6, I believe.
39: How do you look right now?
Probably just a bit scruffy, but that’s who I am, haha.
40: Who’s the person who first comes to your mind when someone mentions “love”?
