Representing Brazil in the apparatus free-for-all….

20050131-T
I used to play as Brazil in Epyx’s Summer Games a lot, merely because of the country’s three-letter abbreviation.

The Ninja Twins saved me from a nightmare.

I actually own a ribbon similar to those used in Rhythmic Gymnastics. I thought it was a neat sport when I first saw it in 1984. So I’ve had the ribbon for about 20 years or so. I kick ass at twirling it. However, I get dizzy if I turn around in my chair too fast and am unable in any capacity to flip over in any way whatsoever.

So the cats benefit from my twirling skills when I’m awake, and from my lumpiness when they want to sleep.

I never would have guessed.

I have a thing about spiders hiding in boots…and never mind what I meant about wetting myself properly. >_>

That aside, the snow is pretty to look at and I’m going to use the pencil I used on today’s strip forever because that thing has some sort of skill built into it. That middle panel shocked the hell out of me. (Go to an early strip, compare and be happy for me.)

Oh yeah, and I draw stuff on my nails with permanent marker when I’m supposed to be thinking.

*does some golfing moves*

For some reason I don’t mind being obscure at this hour. I’ll give points, even.

Ooh, biting social commentary!

I’m starting a new thing this weekend.

At least once a month, I’m going to bring up a book, or something, and say something about it. Because I’m an artsy freak in my mind.

I don’t really believe that The Lottery was just a clever way to get rid of the annoying people, but it’s funnier that way. I never did think the story was shocking, though. Keep in mind I watched Alien when I was 5, grew up on ’80s slasher flicks, and Stephen King is like a weird uncle to me and nothing really shocks me much.  Except that stupid screaming head video.

Yes, that is GTAIII on the screen. I love that game. It hasn’t made me want to steal cars or kill people, either.

I think I know why I’m the one that gets discounted from polls.

Pfft.

While I really do drop my pencil at least ten times a day, this was my way of slacking off. Yeah, you heard me. Like anyone reads this, like anyone reads the comic. I’m just about up to the 100th strip, and nothing. Not one post in the forum, not one obscene e-mail, no comments here, nothing.

I know how it is, I read comics, fall to my knees in awe and lurk on the forums, watching the other fans go all, “worst strip ever!” on the artists. But aside from that one time I talked to myself, there’s not really any interaction here for lurkers to watch.

So here’s your chance, lurkers. I’m feeling chatty. Tell me something about yourselves.

Keep in mind this is not an invitation to come to my house.

It really can be funny.

This week will be about The Woman’s sudden shaving incident. The twins mainly would like to have her bed to themselves again, like the old days, but that’ll happen soon enough. As I write this, she’s already up and around, not as much as she’d like, but soon…soon.

I have some serious acid reflux and will now post this before I puke on my keyboard.
