Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

Here, pretty much anything remotely jelly-like is made by them.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

*smites the stores around here*

Mostly, only can get gummy bears, although I recall finding some of their other products somewhere.

Now, just where were we? I know I was with Chelsea, because she loves the peach rings, and they had those by Haribo.

I'll have to ask her. In the meantime, there's always "care" packages! *puppy eyes*

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

We're becoming crazier each day - I actually printed out the whole list and looked up the words I didn't know, so the thirdyear apprentice and I do now speak a clumsily translated jellybeanese.
(Lead to rather funn remarks, mostly along the lines of, "You know, I've got the Jellybean Factory in my pocket today")

And today I decided on a name for  our boss - we do now refer to her as "Pickle".

We used to call my old boss the kitchen witch. I used to call her Satan. No joke. And, funnily enough, when I said it everyone knew who I was talking about.

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

*giggles at Gen*

well, we needed a name of which nobody could guess it meant her. Oh, what joy to say, rather loudly, "If only the Pickle would leave -"

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

*throws more black jbs at the Silly Trainee*

on Wednesday, she'll take a test which will decide whether or not she'll be allowed to stay as a regular apprentice. (OK, it's not just the test, but it's quite important) and I do NOT want her to stay. Nobody with a bit of sense does. But they're not the ones who'll decide. *growls*

Re: Jelly Bean Factory of Doom -- The Annex

Muahahaha! We're so incarnadine. We (that is, the other girl from my work and I) are starting to use Jellybeanese here at vocational school, so we can talk about the rest of the class without worrying if they can hear us. Having so much fun! And some of the others are getting quite annoyed by it.
