If You Are Reading This, I Didn't Die

This would be what kills me…

So, today at work, we had a cookie cake for the staff with August birthdays. Awww…

I grabbed a piece and set it aside, because I had a meeting to run to, and didn’t want to just wolf it down. Much, much later - it’s hard to find time to stop - I grabbed my piece of cake and ate it while simultaneously working on something or other on the computer. I took a couple bites and realized two things at pretty much the same time: 1) something was sticking to the inside of my lips and cheeks and 2) something was stinging my hands.

Oh, hello, ants swarming my piece of cookie cake…

"Oh, sorry - were you going to eat that?"
So, yeah, it’s been one of those days.

Unexpected Sweetness

Hey, you guys remember my latest Redditgifts post? Well, my Secret Santa sent me another comic book, Sweet Tooth!



Despite the candy-coated name, this looks like a very dark read:

A decade ago the Affliction raged like a forest fire, killing billions, and the only children born since are a new breed of human/animal hybrid. Gus is one of these endangered children, a boy with a sweet soul, a sweeter tooth - and the features of a deer.
But kids like Gus have a price on their heads. When vicious hunters descend on his isolated forest home, a mysterious and violent man called Jepperd rescues Gus. The hulking drifter promises to lead Gus to “The Preserve,” a fabled safe-haven for hybrid children.
As the two cross this dangerous new American frontier, will Jepperd corrupt “Sweet Tooth,” as the killer has nicknamed him, or will it be Gus’s heart that changes Jepperd?

I think I’m going to like it - but I don’t think I’ll let the kids read it just yet…

Rainy Days and Sundays...

I did not have a particularly good day today. I think I’ll go to bed early, and try again tomorrow.

Delicious....

If you aren’t familiar with Redditgifts, you should get on that. It’s a lot of fun to play Secret Santa with strangers from around the country (or, if you can afford it, around the world)! I like it, anyway.

The gift exchange I’m currently participating in is a graphic novels exchange. I haven’t shipped off the stuff for my match - I’m waiting for a couple more items to come in, so I can package them all up and ship them off, but that’s okay, I’ve got until September 5.

But! I got my present today. And it is cool!

It’s actually the first volume of a comic book collection, and I think DH will go nuts when I start buying the rest. (Sorry! I promise to only buy, like, one volume a month?) The comic is called Chew:

Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. He’s been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.


How awesome is that?!

I Had a Talk With Ranga...

"Hey, Ranga, what if I started a web comic series of our adventures? Wouldn’t that be neat?"

"Er…not really. It would just be you sitting on the couch, trying to balance the laptop and a kitten on your lap, eating tortilla chips and getting guacamole everywhere."

"Oh. True. I suppose that wouldn’t be very exciting."

"Also, you can’t draw. I mean, you can barely draw a recognizable cartoon elephant."

He’s a very perspicacious kitten. Sorry, guys. No web comic from me. Ah, well….

Ouch...

Hi, all! Sorry I went quiet - I’ve had a migraine the past couple days.

I know you’re all concerned with the Internet - so here are some ideas on how to save it. They’re pretty good ideas, folks.

Now I’m going back to bed, and I hope I wake up without wanting to take my head off and kick it somewhere far away…
