The Amateur Everything

Karthik Kakarala, head of Solar Shadows Records, 2nd year student in the Xavier University School of Medicine at Aruba, contains a sampling of what rattles around in his mind upon this Tumblr. This is not a Twitter. Expect bouts of verbosity, regardless of whether it's for better or for worse.

Blah blah blah sand blah blah respect blah pregnancy blah blah but first there was flirting blah blah sin blah blah battle yadda yadda Sweden blah blah big battle yadda yadda bleeding etc. Death.

That said, I enjoyed it (in spite of some of its pacing issues), and I got to drink a root beer float while I watched.

Blu-Ray helps with things like that, too.

In the last posting gap

Me: ::setting bottle down, opening the drawer and taking out the bottle opener with the left hand, while beginning to look at the instruction manual for a new point-and-shoot camera that Mum got on my recommendation1 with my right hand::2

Mum: NO, it’s too early for that! You said you were going to help with this stuff!

Me:

Me: …this is root beer.  ::turns bottle to face her:: ¿Is that okay?

Dad: ::laughing::

Mum: …well, it looks kind of like one [bottle of beer].

Me: ¿When was the last time I drank beer on a Friday, particularly here? ¡It’s Root Beer Float Friday! It doesn’t even have caffeine.

Mum: …it looks like a beer bottle.  ::intentionally being stubborn::

—————-Later—————-

Me: OH MAN, I’D BETTER SLOW DOWN, I’VE NEARLY FINISHED A BOTTLE.

Mum:

————-Later still—————

Me: That’s it, I’m TOTALLY CUT OFF, now.

Mum: Hush. ::laughing::

Me: ::grinning:: No.

1. It’s an understanding that my parents insist on entrenching themselves in their own unawareness by barely going through the instruction manuals.  On the occasions when I’m staying at their house, I’m asked regularly to set up or troubleshoot devices that I’ve never personally used for more than a minute in my life.  I try to tell them that it’s because I read through and remember entire contents of instruction manuals, and that the rest of the time I use the internet or “Help” sections to assist in brainstorming around any problems that I don’t already know how to fix.  I tell them this, and they occasionally listen to me.  Emphasis necessary.

2. I frequently multitask, without necessarily pushing the limits of my coordination with the amount of focus that I’m employing.  I only do this when my brain is really humming along, but it unnerves people that don’t even keep more than two tabs open, let alone plenty of others.  I was a good server, in my time.

Goose Island Root Beer, sweet via 100% cane sugar
Baskin Robbins fresh-packed vanilla ice cream
All in a freeze-gel mug that had been sitting in the freezer, READY for me.
Oh, and A&W Root Beer Float Desert Topper drizzled on all of this.  It’s intended to add the essence of a root beer float to other things… but I have it on top of a root beer float.
Hence my expression.  I had just tried it, at that point.

The thing about being a candidate for being the next Batman is that I wouldn’t need Alfred around to make food or hand me root beer floats.  However, Alfred generally proves to be insanely badass with each telling, comic book or film, and I could frankly use the backup in life.

Smile Friday+Root Beer Float Friday:  Pausing to appreciate the glory that is Goose Island (one of the best things about Chicago) and an excellent root beer with 100% cane sugar.
