I feel like this today. ALL THIS.

Drew this during the heatwave. At 105°F I go into automatic mode. Then something’ll happen like The Puppy gets an ear infection from all the rain and it’s like OH HELL, SHOULDA GOT THE A/C FIXED. But then halfway up the road something else starts smoking so it’s like, not that big a deal anymore. Continue reading “I feel like this today. ALL THIS.”

Stuff I should be wary of.

So, back when Spring started, our gum tree didn’t get the memo, and my big-ass firethorn also got frosted to death. It was all very sad, but the firethorn started to grow back right away, so that wasn’t so bad.

It really defies explanation, pt 2.

Anyway. My happy little land of lilies and foliage looked like it was re-enacting the end of Medicine Man, so while I was fixing things, I noticed some really big termites working on the remains of the tree.

Who needs to eat forContinue reading “It really defies explanation.”

Humans use any excuse for a party.

Never go out in the sun before 3PM. If all the world learned this, I would be a happier placemat.

I have a thing where, if I go out in the sun much, I sort of get really ill. It’s entertaining at first, but then I turn into a nasty drunk and it’s just not worth it. I’m pretty sure this condition has an official name, but I prefer my four-letter description of it muchContinue reading “Never go out in the sun before 3PM.
