Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

Across an epiphany field where the rapid flowers bloom... over a stretch of understanding water... past sands the hue of health... where the blushing sun falls over an island clouded in chamomile...

A building stands where jelly beans are made. More of them, that is. We sort of ran out of room.

Allow me to offer up to you the greatness that is doom...I mean jelly beans.

*leaves a great giant pile of jelly beans for the lovely and beautiful mantids*

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

i've been trying very, very hard. it's a combination of ending up writing the chapters three or four times before being happy with them and the 39 hours i'm working this week. however, chapter 66 is more than half way done. promises!

I know I'm not being fair, but she annoys me so much, I can't even look at her.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

*takes a basket and starts collecting jbs for the other fistyear girl*
as nice as she is... sometimes it's all I can do not to yell at her.
hmm... amber... cadmium... copper... navy...

I could think of a few more, but I'll leave it at that... wouldn't want to make her sound too stupid.
Yeah, I know she's going through a difficult time... but she can be so exhausting to work with.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

we're such nutters... I started thinking about jbs already at work. We were all working on one table, I and the thirdyear girl on one end, and the Silly Trainee (who we both dislike immensely) near the other. So I (quietly, of course) told the thirdyear about it, and all afternoon, we kept muttering "Doom. Pitch-black doooom" whenever we looked at the Silly Trainee.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

you know, the best is: Haribo (best-known jellybean producer round here) also makes this liquorice stuff. And we're planning buying some of that, to throw it at the Silly Trainee.
Actually pretty idiotic, but we're still having fun.
