USPS lost a $150 clock, just got 1 gift item in the mail when I ordered 3 of them, some guy called me and opened with “You gave me a card and told me to call” which I KNOW is bullshit because I NEVER tell people to call me and my number isn’t on my fucking card and it says in three places on my work site to specifically NOT call but rather e-mail me wanting me to come in and meet him on my days off, another package full of sensitive electronic shit left out in the rain, and someone opened a claim against me on eBay…because they couldn’t figure out how to work the lock on a knife.
Yep, back in the real world where almost everyone is a complete fucking moron and nobody gives a fuck.
After spending a good hour trying to figure out the least awkward way to reply to a question on a post…I really wonder how tumblr didn’t bother to add a “reply” button. I mean, holy shit, it’s 2014. That is no longer considered “bells and whistles.”
Sure! I threw the main body, spout, the lid, and a double-vortex piece for the core. I trimmed the outer edges of the top and bottom of the double-vortex to be smooth circles, then cut two holes in the body of equal diameter, then carefully inserted the core piece, making sure it matched up and trimming everything as necessary to get it to fit. Then I slipped and scored the edges and actually stuck it on there, paying careful attention to the inside seam. It’s crucial not to bend the vortex at this point or it’ll warp in the kiln and tear the thing apart. That design also has to dry VERY slowly…I made four of those teapots and only one actually turned out (so there’s probably 40 hours total in that one piece counting the time I spent failing). Here’s a photo of the parts with the cores in the foreground:
Also, I am beginning to get the feeling there are no single women my age left. Missed my chance.
whatthehellhappenedtoyou said: what is your age?
I’m 32. The age where you’re too much of a creepy old guy for college aged women and your peers all either have kids, a husband, or some kind of massive obvious flaw that makes them impossible to be around for long.
