The hard drive in the computer capable of running Krita, the drawing app, is no more. With it went the comic I really wish I had finished. But no, I was starting a new phase of Not Stressing and walking away when I had to.
That sort of behavior is not what brought you all this comic for 15+ years.
I’ve seen other comics go this way, a drive failure, LIFE EVENTS, and I really don’t want that to happen because this comic is literally my life and I have a pile of ideas I want to draw. I even wanted to get into animations, and someday maybe I will, but for now I’m going to keep it as simple as possible so I can just get cute cat and dog comics in your eyeballs instead of just moping about how I really really should have moved that one file over to the old computer even though it wasn’t finished yet.
Do you believe in the power of Mercury retrograde to disrupt things?
I was going to make a joke on Wednesday that I was giving up my comic for Lent, but as it turns out the computer that runs Krita and has the artwork for the next comic gave up on working properly, so until I get it working again through fancy key combos or just removing the hard drive and finding the comic, I owe you a movie. I would have had it finished in another hour.
I may be going ahead with the March adventures as ol’ pencil-and-Paint-Shop-Pro comics I can still manage on my old duffer PC. I don’t know yet. I don’t really know anything right now.
Fortunately, we have top men working on things.
Whaaaaat, a Friday comic?! Internet Puppy Pals are having a fundraiser! It’s everyone’s worst nightmare, my bestie and her mom are being kicked off the land where they’ve lived for years with the adorable and sweet dogs they’ve rescued, and they can’t take the dogs with them. My friend wants to make sure her nine dogs survive this bullshit and she’s raising money to get them into a no-kill shelter.

I have to admit one month later, I can’t find the bright side of losing my Slinky Son, but I started this year listening to Eric Idle’s audiobook Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life: A Sortabiography. I credit the Pythons for keeping me alive until black cats came into my life, and for the first week of 2019, one spent some time in my ears on those cold mornings when I was horribly aware of what was coming. Did I do my Slinky son justice? Only here in the comic. Would this be what he’d do? Obviously I think this is what he’d do. He was always singing, and sang this more than once over the years. Hell, I want this song played at my funeral.
I’ve been watching a lot of videos of the Ninja Twins, and my Slinky Son talking his head off. Yay for videos!
My Fluffy son has been diligent in keeping his brother from knowing what’s what with the world. When The Woman left us 13 years ago today, he kept standing in front of his bro so he couldn’t see what was up. Apparently he also told him she went to a sheep circus in New Zealand? I did not know this until now.
Whaaaat, no, let’s go back to funny movie spoofs, this sucks! Yes, yes it does. I plan to find it as much funny as possible because then would just be true and that is unacceptable, as spacemom Carrie reminds us all.
Spoiler: he’s still with us and dealing with it all better than I am!
Everyone who saw The Girl In The Spider’s Web are yelling, “spoilers!” and everyone who didn’t is just like, “Damn, Lynda, you do…stuff!” But, you know what, I’m just wondering how we’re having this conversation considering I’m clearly in a room and the Spider is clearly on a cliff. Oh well.
(And yes, for those who are into Lisbeth Salander’s shirts, those numbers do correspond to those letters of the alphabet and HAHA I amuse myself so much.)
Yes, I start every day getting smarter! Totally! And then if I need any of that knowledge, I apparently end up looking like a mantis.
Who am I kidding? Atari had its problems too, if I didn’t get the cassette queued up to the beginning of the right program, my CLOADs were all in vain.
Uh…yeah, so I had to move the router. It went pretty well but I wasn’t feeling great so it took longer than it should have but The Slinky One totally helped and was on top of everything at all times.
(Pointless trivia: I’m using a new pencil. The 4th pencil, you guys!)
I’ve somehow been coding 100 days straight and to celebrate I made a game.
It’s a memory match game starring all of us comic strip characters and can be found here: https://codepen.io/LyNac/full/gdWBPQ/
Yeah…the deer finally went back in the shed this weekend. It kept snowing, okay?
