On Your Feet

i carry a digital camcorder/camera with me everywhere i go, but i don't look for extraordinary things to motivate me to take a picture. yesterday i took these pics of my feet and a couple of other employee's feet. mine are pretty easy to spot, but can tell which pair of shoes belong to ashley and genene? double punches for everyone who tries. this whole experience reminds me of the opening credits to footloose.

The Goggles

i've lost track of how many sunglasses i've worn and lost over the years. they always get lost or broken somehow. a couple of years ago i bought a pair that i wear around my neck in hopes that neither happens. customers associate these sunglass goggles with motorcycles and often ask me if i ride one. when i answer "no" they just look at me funny and chalk it up to one more weird thing i do.

Three Minute Fiction

i recently entered an NPR writing contest called three minute fiction. the idea is to write a story that's 600 words or less, and the subject matter has to revolve around the president (real or imagined). so why is this on the homer's blog you may ask? some of the stories are making it on the NPR blog, and one of the contestants wrote a story where the president is taking forever to order food and drink at a diner... and yes, he's drinking coffee. this was not the story i submitted.

The Sign Needs a Home

has it been awhile since you bought a homer's coffee mug or a homer's t-shirt? are you wondering if that empty feeling is because you don't have enough homer's memorabilia in your home? breathe easy 'cause we've got another collector's item for you: a homer's sign! this summer's hot spell did a number on one of our signs, so we're giving it away. it is currently residing in the sound booth.

Q: why did the coffee taste like mud?
A: because it was ground a couple of minutes ago.

Surviving Monday

kinda of a slow day. one of our customers was carrying this book when he walked in so i took a picture. if you read this and want your 30 seconds back, i'm sorry. but if you read this and want double punches toward a free drink, then you're welcome.
