Go Up a Level – Change Litter Box

with 5 comments

changelitterbox

This one’s all for Tara, who is cat-sitting four kitty cats for a week and some days. I witnessed a couple of litter box changing sessions during my short visit with her, and boy-oh-boy, nothing craps like a cat. Go up a level, darling. You’ve earned it.

You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite
You say shark I say hey man
Jaws was never my scene
And I don’t like Star Wars

Awkwardness Arises, Kitty Cat Distracts

2008-11-01

Er, moving on…

I attempted to do a guest comic for Real Life Comics, but considering that I’m just a tiny minnow in a big ol’ pond my submission was consummately ignored–not even a reply or hey, thanks–and that its guest comic grace period is now over I’ll just post it here. Enjoy. Sometimes I try, sometimes I don’t. Either way, it’s the same uphill battle:

Cause it seems I get so hung up on
The history of what’s gone wrong
And the hope of a new day
Is sometimes hard to see

New Old Houses Hold Many Secrets

with 4 comments

Better watch out, Sean, Ellen, and kitty cats…Hallowe’en approaches. Hope you’re enjoying the place and that no one fell down those deathtraps you call staircases

REMINDER: I’m posting TWO comics a day until the week is over. Check below for an earlier comic!

Can everything in some way help us understand
From mathematical problems to rubber bands
And can we say it’s wrong altogether
The world goes on forever
It still looks big

#393 – Meet Brendon

with 8 comments

Shockingly, I wasn’t the one that suggested Frodo.

Writing news
Yesterday, I found out that I’ll have a piece of short fiction published in an upcoming issue of Behind the Wainscot. Yay! Stay tuned kiddies for this one! It’ll go live sometime early August!

Snapple Real Facts #13: Cats have over one hundred vocal chords.

I’m looking at myself, reflections of my mind,
It’s just the kind of day to leave myself behind,
So gently swaying through the fairyland of love,
If you’ll just come with me and see the beauty of
Tuesday afternoon.

#351 – I Ate Bacon

with 14 comments

Just so we’re on the same page, I’m talking about this. Not this. Also, I’m the worst lacto-ovo pescetarian that ever once was!

Not shown in the comic: Upon hearing about my latest adventure in eating, Tom stopped whatever he was talking about with whomever immediately to share his entire bacon-life story to us. When I tell you it was great, I mean it was beyond great. I’ve only ever seen such excitement in movies, where the children come bounding down the stairs, shrieking and shaking all because it is Christmas morning and Santa has done well. Anyways, Tom claims, and feel free to argue whether or not such a memory can exist, that he remembers the very first time he ever ate bacon at the age of three. Then came a list of the number of things one can do with bacon, as well as the numerous concoctions that something plus bacon can be born in no time at all. It really seemed to go on for hours when, in truth, it was only a handful of minutes. But that leads us to…

Question of the day: What do you like to put your bacon on? Don’t say cat.

And now I’m officially tired of the very word…

Outside my window
Under the moon
All the lights in the harbor
Keep me from sleeping
Keep me from dreaming

#344 – Playing for Penny

with 8 comments

Here’s the hard version, with screaming and head twitches from original Saosin singer Anthony Green:

I play it just as sporadic, but somehow a wee bit softer. Plus, um, acoustically. Regardless, Penny was not a fan. She bowed out of the mosh pit and made for safe keeping on Pam’s bed. I was hoping she’d come back up and throw her bra at me. Penny, not Pam. No, Penny doesn’t wear a bra. Okay, this is getting out of hand.

Question of the day: Did you eat Mexican food for Cinco de Mayo? I didn’t, but I did drive by Chevy’s with my window down and that smelled pretty dang fantastic. Then again, I had some over the weekend. So if you had it, kudos to you, y’know, for celebrating your love for the initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

#342 – Starbucks Orders

with 10 comments

I’m too polite.

That said, you’re all a bunch of ugly monkeys! And you smell, too! You’re a bunch of stinky, smelly people and I’ve been holding back on tellin’ you just how much you reek for far too long and that some of you certainly need to shower a wee bit longer. Soap is your friend, not thy enemy. Work it cause man oh man is the wallpaper starting to peel….eh, I can’t do this. You’re all the bestest ever. I can’t be anything but thankful for my readership. I say “please” and “thank you” like…okay, I just spent fifteen minutes trying to come up with a really solid and substantial comparison, but all I kept typing was “like Randy Jackson says ‘yo, dog.'” Gah. Anyways, I say it a lot. ACCEPT IT, world. Please…thank you.

In other news, Sam Tomaino from the SFRevu Review recently gave the latest issue of Kaleidotrope a read. He touches very briefly on all the stories here, describing mine as such: Paul Abbamondi weighs in with “She’s a Hearth,” the story of a young girl who goes way too far to warm a worthless boy’s heart. Yup, that about sums it up. Overall, he was pleased with the magazine. Which, y’know, is pleasing to me. Cause I’m in it.

Oh, and it is Friday. Mmm Friday, how I’ve longed for you all week long. I’ll be dog-sitting Penny the Princess and three kitty cats, watching Battlestar Galactica with Tara, and entertaining Momma Dukes and D as they visit on Sunday. Whew. What are your plans?

There’s a gentleman who’s not so gentle
Cause he’s too generous with his chit and his chat
So lately we’ve been discussing a way to rid
This disgusting example of ample gossip and gab
All we hear is la la la…
