Obviously, DMV stands for demons missing voices.
The only things she said to me during the entire process were as follows: “Forty-three!” and “Wait over there!”
But all in all, despite everyone working there professionally scowling and not saying many words, it wasn’t too bad. I got my driver’s license renewed and updated the photo since the previous one was from eight years ago. In the new pic, my chin is much bigger. Oh well. Won’t have to go back for four years, and when I do…I think I’ll save my warm greetings for someone who deserves it.
This probably won’t work out
We might not live forever
While there’s nothing to confess
Please pay attention

I’ve been thinking about this for some time now, and I can’t quite determine exactly what is being declared on the license plate. Is this a claim that Paul–Pauls in general, actually–is #1, meaning the best of the best, meaning one heck of a trophy-taker, meaning GO TEAM GO? Or is it, in fact, pointing out that the driver of the car is none other than Saint Paul, the first of them all?
Who knows? I’m just a guy that draws comics.
And so I’m reaching out for the one
And so I’ve learned the meaning of the sun
And all this like a message comes to shift my point of view
And watching through my own light
As it tints the shade of you

Us Abbamondi folk…we’re like everyday MacGyvers I tell you. I actually first suggested using the string on an extra air freshener in my car so I’m not totally perfect as a resourceful secret agent, but I promise I’m working on it.
Anyways, after the car problems were finished up, all of us went out to eat at Carino’s Italian Restaurant. We nom nomed, we caught up, and afterwards we all went our separate ways (well, not me–I stayed in my apartment for the evening). It was a very nice visit, all-in-all, and hopefully I’ll get down to South Jersey some time in September/October…
Give me all your stuff
Until I can’t get up
Watch the whole world freeze
Counting tin cans in our sleep
Submarines are diving deep
And don’t believe in me

So, help me out here and tell me all about the inanimate objects you’ve named so I don’t feel like a complete sociopath. Bonus points for truly geeky names. Not that we’re keeping score or anything, no.
I’ve become just like a terrible mess
Searching the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
But the crowds keep me coming back

That final panel represents my car’s engine light going off. Yup, I’m totally
Maybe the sun will shine today
The clouds will blow away
Maybe I won’t feel so afraid
I will try to understand

I’m sure we’ve all been here in this moment at some point or another.
Also, anyone wanna guess what I spent the remainder of my drive back staring at? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
How many times can I break til I shatter
Over the line, can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break, let me make my own pattern
