#260 – In Comparison

with 9 comments

Well, here it is, everybody. The last comic of 2007. I’m heading home today to see my family for the holidays and then it is out to Arizona to visit Bitsy! Yay, we’re going to drink lots of wine, play lots of Scrabble, and let Momma Dukes treat us to good meals! I’m so glad to not eat Ramen noodles any more.

So, I hope everyone has a nice holiday and a safe New Year’s Eve. See y’all in 2008!!!

SNOW: How dirty boys get clean.

So, in order to get more visitors mistakenly, let’s all talk about how Jamie Lynn Spears gone and got herself preggers. The first question of this sure-to-be intense discussion is: WHO CARES?

It wasn’t that good.

So, did you have a favorite comic of mine in 2007? If so, let me know! I’m still pretty fond of this one, only because it’s 120% accurate as to how I handled the situation.

Also…Happy Birthday, Papa Dukes!

Penny sounds like a mix of Norah Jones and a garbage disposal. Very beautiful, very raw.

Okay, my Christmas shopping is officially complete, with seven days to spare. Tonight will be the final wrapping (not rapping)…or whatever I can get done. I’ll save the tougher-to-wrap gifts for Momma Dukes to handle when I return home. Yeah, that’s right! You heard me! Got a problem with it???

Happy Friday, everybody!

I don’t have much to say this morning so…know any good holiday jokes? They can be intellectual or corny. Doesn’t matter to me.

Lastly, let’s hear what you’re up to this weekend. Seeing I Am Legend? Finishing up those last minute gift ideas? Snuggling with a cat?

#254 – Snow Supplies

with 10 comments

My mother taught me well.

In sad news, one of my favorite authors, Terry Pratchett, recently announced that he has been diagnosed with a rare form of early onset Alzheimer’s. That sucks. Still, in true Pratchett form, the man is handling the news with an upbeat stride, hoping for the best and mentioning that he’s still got a few books in him yet. It truly is amazing how brilliant this man is, even now when the world is less than kind to him. I’m keeping him in my thoughts and will continue to buy every Discworld novel that comes out as if nothing has changed.

#253 – Favorite Rum

with 7 comments

Part One, for those that missed it, is here. Pretty soon I’m not going to be able to go anywhere in this town without someone remembering me and my order. I think the Starbucks employees at my local Barnes & Noble are next to jump the gun and begin making my tall hot chocolate (with whipped cream!) before I even open my mouth.

If you’re a Pixar fanatic like myself, you’re definitely going to want to check out this definitive list of in-jokes and self-references found throughout each and every movie of theirs. Some I remember catching firsthand…others are a lot tougher to spot. Talk about attention to detail!

This ever happen to anyone?

And grok comes from Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein, which I’m currently reading. So deal with the trendy terminology.

Also, Bitsy says I need to practice more Scrabble before coming out to see her at the end of this month. Anyone up for an e-mail game?

Here’s some more, making up for the hippy-dippy trip that was today’s journal comic. These ones are so bad…they’re sad. But I guess that’s the point, right?
