Bonus Comics from August 2008, Part Three

with 2 comments

I see these posts are very popular with the WordPress crowd. /sarcasm

Two more bonus comics, one capturing the actual moment when “I love you”s were both finally exchanged after the initial slippage (aren’t you jealous you yourself don’t have such documentation of your SO’s adoration and affection for you to refer to through all of time?):

And then there’s this one about ordering Chinese food:

Speaking of that, tonight is the season 5 finale of LOST and I’m thinking I need to throw myself a lonesome party and get some general tso chicken. Yes? Yes.

Follow me down through the streets of the states
Make up a reason not to come for old time sake
Nothing in this town could ever change
Except maybe new lines on your face

Finding Out There’s No Jury Duty Produces Mixed Emotions

with 2 comments

2008-12-22

So, back in early November 2008 I received a jury duty summons for the dates of December 23 and December 24. This put me in a big slump because it meant I could do little as to planning how I’d like to spend my holidays and such. Still, everyone assured me that there would be no way in Mordor that a trial would actual be set for the holiday week. I shrugged and said I had to wait until the 22nd to call in and see what was what.

As you can see, the call went in my favor. No jury duty…for ANYONE. The courthouse shut down for the remainder of December. I’m pretty sure they knew they’d do this for some time so why make everyone wait until the last minute possible to alert them. Gah. The system makes no sense to me.

Until next time, jury duty. Until next time.

And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just raining
Ain’t no need to go outside

Rain’s a Pain, Snow’s for Hoes

Oh, that Momma Dukes! Weeks later, when I told her I’d be drawing a comic about this little conversation nugget, she had no recollection of ever saying it. Hmm. Someone needs to eat more blueberries. Or play Brain Age.

Question of the day: Would you rather be caught in the rain or buried in the snow?

It’s gonna take a lot of time
Before I can cross that finish line
And when I can’t take the fall
I really wanna make that call

Voicemail Message from a Porn Star

Another comic about my cell phone? Yup, that’s the way life works. At least this one involves pornish things. Actually, I suspect someone was moving a couch and accidentally butt-dialed my number. But a boy can ponder…

Wake up in the morning I shall
Wake up and so shall you
And I wake up, the sun is beautiful
And it is warming you and I
Fragile as we lie

My Cell Phone Ringtone Scares Me Like Woah

with 2 comments

2008-11-19

Trust me. You don’t want to hear my phone’s ring. It brings weathered warriors to their knees, it summons Godzilla, it sucks all the happiness from a room. Um, it also causes my hand to jump and send a line of ink shooting across my paper. Me thinks me needs to keep it on vibrate when I’m drawing from now on…

Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight
And I’m going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old
I don’t sit around thinking about it
But I probably will

Calling the Bank Proves Easy

with 6 comments

It turns out that if you create a savings account to keep all the money you got from your college graduation party and then, after three to four years, never make a deposit or withdrawal, the bank people will send you a letter threatening to turn the money over to the state unless, ya know, you prove you are alive.

::waves hands:: Hello, alive person here! ::keeps on waving::

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It’s all over, and I’m standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go
