#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!

#252 – Super Twitch

with 12 comments

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?

200 Sad Comics – #41-45

with 5 comments

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?

#251 – Mean Comment

with 7 comments

Someone posting from a San Diego City School on 4100 Normal Street in California took the time off from their busy schedule to let me know how I’m doing over here. Oh well. I believe someone once said that when you begin to acquire anti-fans, you’re getting bigger.

And hey! Did you know that James Kochalka totally redesigned his website and is now making his archives free (well, at least going back to 2002)? You should go check ’em out because his journal comic eats baby journal comics like mine for breakfast.

Have a nice Monday, y’all.

#250 – Quietly Jealous

with 7 comments

Are you quietly jealous of something? Don’t say cloud drawers. Be original!

My goal for the weekend is to finish all my Christmas shopping, wrap the blasted bounders, and then celebrate with a tribal belly dance. Er, okay…not true. But maybe I’ll take a nap! What are y’all going to be up to?

#249 – Dune

with 6 comments

So, I enjoyed the book quite a lot. The movie, however, lacked the depth and emotion that Herbert layered Arrakis and its people with…plus, this had Sting in it. Acting. Ugh, ugh, ugh. The only part of this that I liked was the look of the Bene Gesserit…very creepy, very bald. Bald women for the win (not Britney Spears though)!

SFWA, or Every Dog Has its Day

with 3 comments

This stemmed from this, if you’re curious. Please note that I am an affiliate member of SFWA. Also note that I’m more of a cat lover than a dog lover. No more notes.
