There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

When work becomes dull...
We have a stand of some large-breasted 'femme fatale' from the WWE showing off their new wrestling game. Her grin is one of pure cheese. I'd had enough. We had HalfLife 2 point of sale things arrive yesterday. Gordon Freeman's face adorns several posters and boxes around the shop. I decided I had to go one better on this, and with the skill Asti showed in cutting accurately, we ended up with this:

There's a 1024x768 version of this picture. I've only made this to shove onto the work PC when I get bored, but thought someone else might appreciate it enough to want it as a background.

Yesterday, I commented I'd upload a pic or two of things I bought in a fit of gluttony. I'll LJ-cut these.

The maroon Converse trainers, and the rest of me now the hair's grown back a bit, back to a comfortable level.

I felt at £30 I was paying too much for those trainers but that's apparently very cheap. You also get to see me in a neutral-coloured top, something that doesn't happen very often.

Lastly, you can see the room that's been well loved, including a curtain that's fallen down, a shoebox on the bed, crisps on the bed, sweets on the windowsill, and possibly Wally.

The Cyberdog t-shirt I just bought. It's too cold to wear it without layers on top of it for quite a while.

Bonus picture! See my friend Trudi ogling "Gordon" up good.

A slightly unusual situation happened at work between a very lippy guy and Asti. He was trying to harass me for a little more money for what he wanted to sell me, being lippy and demanding when he was in no position to do so - almost as if he was trying to induce fear to give him more money. I was enjoying being steadfast and seeing him getting more and more agitated. Asti, hearing this guy's lack of respect and getting disgusted by the second by his presence, told him to stop being so rude (and I'm surprised her tongue wasn't sharper) which caused him to spew mild abuse at her, stating he could "box her up" or cause some form of origami-based pain unto her. Asti simply stood up to him and at that point he took the money and ran, muttering comments from the back of the shop, where the yellow streak down his back wasn't visible.

Personally, I just want rid of people like that when they come in. I don't pander to them but I try to get rid of them as soon as I can, one way or the other. Still, with the entertaining comments Asti made he won't come back and we won't miss him.

You are very silly, Deanie.

Hah, Truds is gonna go mad when she sees that bottom pic! Honestly though, I think that 'lady' looks much better now; a definite improvement. I bet guys who wander into the shop won't stare at it for such a long time now. ;) Oh, and you look simply wonderful in that image Dean, *quaffs wine*

Uuurrr, that guy. How rude is that though, to threaten to beat up a lady? (well, 'lady' ;) How tough of him. I just got the impression he was one of the sort of guys with a chip on his shoulder, who wasn't used to anyone talking back to him like that. People like him need taking down a peg or two. ;)

Well, it's difficult to stare at it in the same way after seeing that. I think Bill might be afraid to take it home now. He probably will though, the git.

Oh, I felt like such a poser! Actually, I said to Jamie to take a pic of the shoes because we wanted to show off the different colours we ended up getting. She then took the picture of me. Pfft.

And he was an idiot. You could see he expected people to bend over for him as soon as he began to debate about what it said in the book.

No, pffft to you, because you told me to stand back from you so I could fit you in the frame!

*Laughs* Did he! Ah, what a poser. ;D

Oh, did Bill see it today? I can't remember if he was working or not. You'll have to let me know what him and the others said.

Hah, I was gonna say poser! ;P Were you going for the natural look?

Yes exactly; you never know, maybe he'll get run over by a bus!

Bill saw it and it remained as is until I arrived! He must have been entertained. Tom was amused, Chris was actually shocked and took a step back after seeing it.

I was going for a pic of the shoes and it looked cheesy from it. But at least the shoe is shown accurately.

Hah, brilliant! I hope it remains like that til next week.

Yes it is...along with the rest. ;D

Instead of Puss in Boots, it's the new computer desktop background.

Hah, yes! What's Simon said about it?

hi Dean! I want your maroon chucks. and the photo of Gordon gave me a good laugh.

Hello! I am glad to hear appreciation of these chucks.

I want Gordon to remain a stable part of the shop but I know the co-worker Bill will have tried to hide the beauty of him.

Best real-life Photoshopping ever! You were very fortunate that Gordon's head happened to be exactly the right size.

Also, your feet are massive! (At least, they seem to be). What size are they?

I was very fortunate, but when you get that fortune you have to take it with both hands and cut cut cut the face onto the stand.

The feet are size ten. I don't think that's a large size. Tony (nickname "Big T" to his friends - though it's not a name I use) has size sixteen feet.

yikes, that sounds huge to me!! when I buy chucks I have to get them in mens size 4. I'm not sure if american and uk sizes work the same way but still.

Hmm, they look larger. Mine are almost size 9! Perhaps it's a trick of perspective. Tony is clearly a freak of some kind, though.

..He doesn't read this, does he?

Not as far as I know. Hide under the bed, just to be on the safe side, though.

(He's actually been really depressed due to Ol' Dirty Bastard dying so I doubt he'd do more than frown at you these days.)

Ol' Dirty Bastard is dead? Jesus. I used to like him! Maybe my sister and I will have a drink in his name at Christmas.

Ahhh, that tshirt's a Cyberdog one too? I've got a UV reactive Matrix tshirt by those folks. I wanted more but alas, I had no money at the time.

Welllll, he/she did have nice tits ;)

I wish I have a stand like that at work.
