Woot! It’s summer again, and we’re looking for interns! Apply now! :)
We’re pretty busy, so we promise you won’t be doing any coffee-making or doughnut-buying!
Also, we concentrated more on design interns last year. This year, though, we’d like to see if we can get interns who can do food photography as well as design, or at least an intern who’d be willing to learn food photography!
SUMMER TIME INTERNSHIPS! gonna be fuuuuuuuun! :))
mmm… tummy aches from giant butterflies in my tummy <3 i love you pumpkin :3
I won’t be cheesy and go so far as to say “everyday is Valentine’s Day with you”, but it comes really damn close. I spend most of my waking hours in your company, whether for work or just when we hang out, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. All our silly antics that happen when it’s just the two of us is so hard to explain to other people, that I’ve come to terms with the thought that there really are just some things that only we will ever understand (and laugh about for a good 2 hours). There aren’t enough words to describe how much I love being with you, and just being our crazy selves — whether belting out gibberish in the car when we don’t know the words to a song on the radio, or staying in on Friday nights to watch Jurassic Park. I can never get tired of looking at your face, even if it’s in a blurry Instagram picture or delaying in movement on FaceTime. You’re what I look forward to seeing most every day, and the days that I don’t get to see you couldn’t move any slower. I feel like I’m the luckiest girl to have ever lived, as I’ve been so blessed to have someone like you.
So why am I posting this two days after Valentine’s Day? So it won’t be as flooded in with the rest of the cheesy, lovey-dovey, mushy-gushy posts. Because you know how I like to pretend I’m oh-so-different, hahaha!
I love you, Kiks. :)
P.S. This is my 2000th post, according to Tumblr! Pretty awesome. :)

CHECK OUT BLISTER PACK BOY’S FIRST EVER COLLECTOR FEATURE, KARL SANTOS! :D
For our first Blister Pack Boy - featured collector, we have Mr. Karl Santos of Tender Blender! This charismatic young fellow here is currently working as our small design group’s marketing director - the go-to guy when it comes to food concepts and resources! You may know Karl here from the #GoodGuyKarl memes going around. And yes ladies, this handsome hunk is very much single! ;)
I’ve known Karl for quite a while now. He’s been a close friend of mine since high school and I’ve been working with him a lot since graduating from college. Karl has always struck me as a very practical guy. He’s the type who rarely gives in to splurging on things, so learning about this was quite a surprise! He is, shall we say, a closet collector!
His collection spans through the classic Marvel universe action figures released through the 90’s to the early 2000’s. He has a ton of these guys! From fan favorite Wolverine to the obscure hero Namor. In my opinion, these action figures are probably the best articulated and most beautifully detailed renditions of these characters in plastic! I mean, The Thing has a cloth sewn trench coat! Now that’s detailing rarely found in action figures released today. Karl showed me his favorites: Spider-Man and Venom! I recognized the Spider-Man figure as one of the most sought-after versions of the wall crawler by Marvel toy collectors.
I asked Karl why this was the line he chose to collect, and why Marvel super heroes for that matter. He told me that he grew up with these characters as a kid. As he got older, seeing the modern film adaptations of these characters becoming more and more popular, he realized the iconography of these superheroes and how lasting they are to the hearts of fans like us. He started his collection back in high school and he tells me the reason he keeps them boxed was that he saw this as a more “grown-up” way of toy collecting! This is actually quite admirable for me because as much as I’d like to keep a number of my toys in their boxes, I could never really resist opening them! Karl tells me that he came to have so many of these figures through years of collecting. Being in high school when he started, he had to really save up for these toys. He did, however, have some help from his dad who pitched in seeing how dedicated Karl was in collecting these figures.
It’s always fascinating meeting people through the things they love. Some may be more open about their passions than others but all the same, you will find that they all share the same level of dedication for, in this case, a toy collection. Getting to know about Karl’s collection was quite a pleasant surprise being a toy collector myself and is often an ongoing topic whenever we hang out or work together!
That’s it for this Blister Pack Boy featured collector! Get ready to meet more collectors soon enough so stay tuned!
currently under construction. Watch out world.
