Well, yes. I’ve done it again. It’s summer, siesta time is boring for me, so when everybody sleeps I love eating and making jello. No one asks, no one looks over your shoulder asking: “what are you gonna do with what?”
No, siesta time is that magic moment of the day when the house is in silence and you can work in peace. Some days ago, I tried a new [jello] recipe: Gin&Tonic jello. It didn’t work the first time, but I tried a second time and… bingo! Today, I’ve realized that I can’t eat gintonic jello as it was the normal one. So today I bet for a classic: lemon jello in aztec pyramid mold.
I still have in mind to do some jello using sand castles buckets as a mold… but let’s see.
I signed on to create a website for a large private high school, and when it was nearly done I asked the principal if there was any specific message he wanted on the homepage. Quite agitated, he asked that I write in bold, all caps: “TO WHOEVER PEED BEHIND THE VENDING MACHINES THURSDAY APRIL 7TH, I WILL FIND YOU AND YOU WILL NEVER, I REPEAT NEVER, PEE AGAIN!”
