I’m wearing Fruit of the Loom and Hanes, thank you. Oh, these are Payless sneakers, thanks!

I watched the Oscars and found that compared to the show, one commercial in particular was the best target for heckling. The Aquafina commercial with people hugging and carrying bottles of water while Karen Carpenter sings Top of the World. I grew up in the ’70s, I like the Carpenters, I like Top of theContinue reading “I’m wearing Fruit of the Loom and Hanes, thank you. Oh, these are Payless sneakers, thanks!”

Not exactly light reading.

Tonight on a very special episode, my second book review meets with tragedy. Plus you get to see me in bed again. Kinky. I should mention that OotP is taking me a long time to finish. I think I started it in 2003. I hope to get back to it in time to start readingContinue reading “Not exactly light reading.”

Cheese, please.

Today’s strip brings you the perils of label reading. I really have to wonder what kind of vets formulate the Pedigree line of products. They’re all about dogs, they say. Then I have to wonder why their Dentabone 3-in-1 shares an ingredient with antifreeze. Do dogs tend to get corrosion under the gums? Do theirContinue reading “Cheese, please.”

Ugh.

I’m overwhelmed with death this morning. Sandra Dee and John Raitt were bad enough, but Dr. Thompson. OMG. I’m bummed. I wanna go watch Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas again. Meanwhile, I drew today’s strip, and then played Monopoly with myself, because I’m snowed in. I have the EGA Monopoly Designer Kit written byContinue reading “Ugh.”

Where do you do your best thinking?

I believe the bathroom may very well be a temporal doorway that takes me back to when I knew everything. For a few brief moments, really brilliant stuff comes back to me. Much like Island 94.3, which I can only hear if I stand near the towels. Today’s strip didn’t come from any of that.Continue reading “Where do you do your best thinking?”

The danger eats us all eventually.

I survived the electric deer attack, and any subsequent dragging that occurred afterward, it wasn’t quite as dramatic as I’ve made it out to be. Also, I was in the basement with the deer, where it has resided since the second week of January. What actually happened is a mystery even to me, but IContinue reading “The danger eats us all eventually.”

100!

Well, my 100th strip went up today, I think. Keenspace is down. I had a big speech planned, thanking everyone who has stuck around from the beginning and promising more hijinks in the next hundred, but then I realized I’m probably the only one who has seen all the strips and I’m even more likelyContinue reading “100!”

I always wanted to be categorized.

I am a pasty goth wannabe. I’ve worn my share of black eyeshadow and blue lipstick, I love The Cure, and my wallpaper is black with little flowers on it. That might be where it went wrong. The flowers. They’re sort of mauve flowers. I’m allergic to the sun, you know…not to the point ofContinue reading “I always wanted to be categorized.”
