    Wow. Just... wow.

    Our office has somewhat tempermental heating - it's either too hot or too cold. There's nothing as sophisticated as "climate control" or even as sophisticated as "a thermostat". There's some heaters, two small windows that open, and some fans. You play with a combination of these three things until the temperature reaches a bearable level. Then you pray it remains constant.

    They said it could not be done.

    Okay, I'm not sure if anyone actually said it. But no one, to my knowledge, has tried to do the epic thing that I have just done.

    Last night, whilst in a silly mood, I felt like drawing something. And it occurred to me that since the move the Cantina has been a little... larger than before. A lot more spacious.

    One could almost get lost in it.

    Unless... unless one had.... A MAP.

    Ladies and gentlemen, monsters and smibbles, I have drawn for your amusement and delight, THE AW CANTINA FLOORPLAN OF DOOM.

    Yesterday you needed to punch people. Today, they freeze the office. I believe your coworkers may be on to you, and hope your gloves soften the blows.

    Apologies in advance for dragging my pimpin' ways into the Cantina, but if any of you are inclined, I'd love to see you stop by my guest blog at the mother ship or this fun one about heartbreak and cannibalism.

    I approve of cannibal questions.
    Pimp it!

    And what happens when a cannibal eats a pimp?!?

    My favorite part of the map is the iWench 2.0.

    SOMEONE should put that in a book.

    Oh my Elder God! This is beyond epic! I found the steps and worked my way up and saw the Dong Garden had already come into existence and 'ed! Literally burst out laughing. The rest is so awesome, though I didn't see the choco fountains? I guess they are at the bar

    One day, when the epicness of your image has become a fond memory, I shall draw my own depiction of the Cantina. I consider the lake a little to the left, down a broad hill, and in a large meadow

    Also: That map looks so epic on my screen. I could see it in it's full glory.

    Does the tree play hilarious videos? Can we screen some pixar?

    Yeah I should've added chocolate fountains and a chocolate pool. They might be on one of the upper levels. Or in the basement. The rest of the Cantina is still uncharted territory...

    One day, when the epicness of your image has become a fond memory, I shall draw my own depiction of the Cantina. I consider the lake a little to the left, down a broad hill, and in a large meadow
    I think I would've drawn it further away if the paper had been bigger. Oh well.

    I'd sort of imagined funny videos growing on it like fruit.


    Yeah I have a weird imagination.

    I'm guessing the fountain might be on the endless buffet.
