#240 – Thanksgiving Predictions

with 10 comments

We’ll see how much of the above comes true. The comic is on vacation while it digests all the yummy food (not turkey) that comes along with this holiday. Plus, er, wine! Momma Dukes has stocked up, and not just for my arrival. We’ll be swimming in–and seeing–red for many, many days.

Hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving with their families, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, cats, dogs, and television sets. Really, I do.

And not to get all sappy-sappy, but I am very thankful for all of you that read my comics and take the time to comment. Y’all rock. Have some extra mashed potatoes, just ’cause.

#239 – Er, Genitals

with 6 comments

It never ended. We were playing the party game called Things, which is fun, so long as you take it somewhat seriously. Which I didn’t. I still can’t get the word out of my head. And hopefully now you won’t be able to either. Seriously, the word came to mind on just about every setup given…

Things that are furry…
Things that make funny noises…
Things that you don’t want to find in a sandwich…
Things that burn easily…
Things that are hard to juggle…

Go on, tell me your answers.

#238 – Most Embarrassingly Awesome Songs

with 8 comments

If anybody says anything–and I mean anything–bad about Paul Simon I will literally do the following:

1. Look up where you live on Google Maps
2. Put gas in my car
3. Drive to your house
4. Ring your doorbell
5. Ring it again
6. Knock really loud
7. Wait a long time until you come home from work
8. Jump out of the bushes and beat you down with my shoe
9. Grab some dinner from your fridge
10. Apologize before leaving

Got it?

Also, in news that only my mother will be concerned enough to want to know…it is snowing here. Ugh. Already? Thirty and some days left until sunny Arizona…

#237 – Crappy Wine

with 9 comments

Don’t worry, I learned my lesson. From now on I’ll only purchase wine that is $3.00 and up. It totally tasted like feet.

This weekend I’m visiting the fam and attending PhilCon 2007. I’m going to assume that there will be drinking happening on both fronts. What are y’all up to? Preparing for Thanksgiving? Watching football? Raking leaves? Buying me presents?

#235 – Games in PA

with 8 comments

I’m a violent chap…but only when playing games. Otherwise, I’m a saint. Who loves pie. And wants to go to Ireland. Gah, I need more sleeeeeeeep.

And now a question that has been lingering on my mind: How do y’all feel about cats or dogs with honorifics (for example, Mr. Pumpkin or Mr. Smuggles)?

Why can’t death be like…I dunno, Death? You know, the titular character in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. Fairly quiet, always ready with a quotable retort, enjoys learning, likes to play chess. He’s not so bad a guy there.
