Bartender Hands

I’ve been bartending a couple of days a week and it’s starting to catch up with me. Right now I’m suffering from a case of bartender hands. That’s when your hands are slightly dried out with small nicks and cuts. The cuts aren’t generally visible but you sure as hell feel them when you get lime juice or a bit of salt in them, both common hazards of the trade. Bartending isn’t just making cocktails, pouring beer, and making small talk with customers. There’s a lot of grunt work involved. You get bartender hands from washing glassware, prepping fruit, broken pieces of glass, and any combination of the above. It takes its toll after a while. It’s worth it at the end of the shift though. Count your money, not your problems.

Vine (app, not the plant)

I finally caved and downloaded Vine for my iPhone the other day. Vine is an app for creating and sharing short videos. Each video is a maximum of thirty seconds long and it plays on a continuous loop. Less is more, and a lot of amazing stories can be told in 6 seconds or less. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a filmmaker or an artist; you still have a unique way of looking at the world and Vine is a great way to express yourself. You can do stop motion animation, you can do a few quick cuts, or you can do a long take… The possibilities are endless. You can do a million different things with six seconds. You can make someone laugh or you can change the world. So be creative. Use your imagination. And inspire other people to do the same.
