I Stay Up Late and Drink (My Own) Blood...I Must Be a Vampire!

The hotel finally contacted me. They woke me up too early, and I tripped over one of my pillows trying to get to my cell phone but that's okay. At least I have a job now! God, I feel so much better. Anyway, so this hotel is historical apparently. The only thing that I really know about its history is that it was constructed by Walter Steilberg in 1958 in an arts and crafts style. It is insanely green, as in "good for the environment." They imported these bamboo towels from Japan that are made using wind turbine energy and an earth-friendly chemical that breaks down the bamboo. I'm not kidding. Though it is a bit ridiculous, the bamboo towels are a lot softer than the scratchy cotton ones. Then again, they should be at $50 per large towel. That and some of cleaners they are switching to are environmentally friendly enough that you could "probably drink them without anything happening." Yes, the guy actually told me to swallow the toilet bowl cleaner he pulled out to show me. To match their nice Japanese bamboo towels, they have ordered some new sheets, but it may take several months for them to arrive. You know, because they have to wait until you order them to pick the cotton. These things take time.
Today was also special because my roommate and I finally used the kitchen together. We hadn't had a chance to cook because we were busy, but we finally found some time. I christened the kitchen by slicing through my finger when dicing tomatoes. I then had to suck on said finger to prevent blood from spurting all over the tomatoes and cutting board. My poor, poor roommate. Here she thought she would actually get help in the kitchen. Stupid dull knife. So now my typing is even more horrendous than normal. It figures considering I have to work tomorrow and about 95.67% of the job involves typing. Quickly. Whilst doing four other things. It will be an interesting experience.
I chose my Hirako icon because I felt how he looks when answering the phone.

Congrats on your job! Hooray you get to have money now. I think?

Who knows, your roommate might actually pound some kitchen knowledge into your brain if you help her enough. Although I don't know if she can take away your clumsiness. :D

Haha, yeah. Thanks!
See, I can cook. I just can't necessarily do so without hurting myself. ^^;;;; That's okay. My finger survived...it's not like I chopped it clean off...
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that nothing can take away my clumsiness.
Yay for Hirako icons! XD
