Last night was so slow that I spent a good half hour figuring out how to write Pix using the Connect Four board. It's not as easy as you might think. John started it, but couldn't figure it out. I watched him try twice, so I had the advantage of learning from his mistakes. As we're doing this primitive graphic design, Sarah comes out and scolds us for not working. "But Sarah," we say, "We are working--we're writing Pix with Connect Four." She accepted this as a valid use of our time. "Oh, I see it! Good job, guys." She also told me later that night that I am an "accountable worker." I think she misused the word, but it was still nice to hear.

A really adorable boy came in last night with his mom and maybe his brother. When I first saw him I thought, "Omigod, it's Jack Downey!" Jack Downey was the boy in High School that all the girls liked. He was beautiful, a free spirit, nice, funny, and did I say hot? He was. We also did Peer Counseling together. This guy had Jack Downey's eyes. Except that Jack had mis-matched eyebrows--he was half Chinese and half Irish, and my theory is that one of his eyebrows was Chinese and the other was Irish. It was one of those flaws that makes someone even more attractive. The boy at Pix had symetrical eyebrows. I lied to his table, too. They wanted to know why the Concord is called the Concord. I went back and asked Cheryl and she didn't know, so I made something up. "It's a traditional french dessert named after a fort (Fort Concord) that held up against the Russians during the Napoleanic wars, during the late 1700s. It's a commemorative dessert. Doesn't it look like a fort with it's meringue logs?" Part of that is true.

I left early and drew a comic before going to sleep. Today I am going to get my taxes done!
