New Thing #297: Tape Delay
There's only so much you can do in the way of New Things when you have to stay late at the office and when you work in a building where you can't get back in after five, so there's no leaving for a soda or a bag of chips or a quick zoom around the block on a scooter. But if you're creative and a little bit weird there's oh so much you can do. Tonight during my many hours of waiting for files, I made crazy tape faces. I don't know why I'd never done this before! I guess my youth was taken up by doing so many other weird things that this one, despite gaining fame in Pee Wee's Big Adventure, slipped through my freakish little fingers. Only one person walked in on me, and while he was taken aback by my Joan Riversish appearance, he barely shrugged when I explained why I looked like I'd just had eel pancreas injected into my forehead.
