First of all, let me just say that I wrote this whole post out on my WordPress app on my iPhone… which then deleted it as it was trying to connect to the network. Awesome. Probably for the best as I still can’t type very well on the touch screen and am just Fanny Fat Thumbs, typing 8 letters at a time by accident. That post would have made even less sense than the rest of my posts.
So, for the second time… Murray’s Affineur, Mike-aroni & Cheese, is in New Orleans this week to take a little time away. Unfortunately, the caves seemed to have sensed that he was about to leave and threw every malfunction that it could muster at him, almost as if they were saying, “Where do you think you’re going, Mike Anderson?” with that creepy Sigourney Weaver evil computer voice. Who moved my cheese? Mike Anderson did. The poor guy had to empty out an entire cave and transfer all its cheeses to a different cave, and then do the whole thing again. By the time he actually did make it out of there, he had earned his vacation about a million times over. It’s weird, the caves didn’t seem to have any problems until about 3 weeks ago, which ironically enough, is when I started working there…
And what was I doing in the midst of the cave hauling? I was patting down and flipping my cheese pets in Cave 3, aka “my happy place.” The one time I offered my help in lifting a 50lb wheel of cheese to my fellow intern, Isak, gave me a look that said, “The day that I need a small Asian woman to help me, a giant Scandinavian, lift something is the day I kill myself.” Actually, his look said that but he also said it out loud in case I missed it.
Isak thinks that my Asianess is also the reason behind why I love the fuzzy cheeses in Cave 3, because apparently, Asian love cuteness… Yeah, alright, it’s true. What’s wrong with that??? Isak and I have decided that fuzzy bloomy rind cheeses will be the next rage item in Japanimation – all they need are little googly eyes and some sort of super power, like the ability to be delicious. Don’t be surprised if furry cheese toys are the next big thing coming out of Tokyo.
At least my iPhone helped me take these pictures… although it probably wasn’t a great idea to touch my phone with my mold-coated hands. The answer to your question is No, I will never learn.
