#326 – Elevator VS. Stairs

with 6 comments

This is a decision I have to make two times a day, five days a week…and boy is it a doozy. Yesterday, I went with the elevator and ended up getting stuck in the middle of two people having a deeply heated conversation about that viral video sweeping the web lately. You know, the one where the teenagers kidnap that girl and beat on her a lot. Well, I guess I’m not enough to stop their chit-chatting as they happily spoke through me. Ugh.

The stairs in my work building are quite narrow, which means if someone is running down behind you there are only two options: 1) make love to the wall so they can pass or 2) try and speed things up yourself, which can be dangerous and exhausting all at once. So, erm, yeah. These are the sorts of dilemmas that plague my daily existence. I know, you’re astounded.

Site-wise, I’ve added a section to the MyLifeComics sidebar for most recent comments. If any are interested, they can sign up with WordPress to upload their own avatar or can grab one free over at gravatar.com. Maybe I might even draw a few this weekend that people can use…

Speaking of the weekend, what is everybody up to? Tonight is a new episode of Battlestar Galactica. Really, that’s all that matters to me. Eh, just kidding. I’d love to finish up some freelance work I have laying around the place. And then sleep. Sleep, sleep, sleep…

#301 – Everything’s a Little Something

with 5 comments

Well, not today today. But a few todays ago. Got it? Good. Today today is just a little colder.

Um, these first photos from the upcoming film version of Watchmen, yeah…they get me all hot and bothered. In a good way. Except for Osymandias. He reminds me of that horrible Batman suit that George Clooney wore. You know, the suit that had nipples.

Would I could afford to buy my love a fine gown
Made of gold and silk Arabian thread
But I am dead and gone and lying in a church ground
But still I push my barrow all the day
Still I push my barrow all the day

#271 – Back in the Day

with 8 comments

Don’t worry, the remaining Arizona vacation comics (parts, um, six through like, er, I wanna say eleven or so) will continue later on. I wanted to post other things that have been happening. There, there. No need to weep. It’ll be okay. I promise, I promise.

Anyways, back in the day people used to say hello to one another? What, like in the 1930s? This is what I should have said immediately after her comment: DO NOT TALK TO ME ON ELEVATORS.

In other news, I’m a bit tired. A weekend of movies, taking care of doggies and a cat (Dewey never came out of hiding), and some gaming into the night has me feeling a bit out of it. Consider me super jealous to all those that don’t have work today. That’s right, teachers. I’m giving y’all the stink eye.

#149 – Baby Talk

with 8 comments

I get a lot of my best material from riding elevators. See, many people can’t stand riding those three minutes up or down in muted silence and so they attempt to make small talk with whoever is around. Me, I just stare straight ahead and count in my head until it is time to get off. Some folks try to tell me about the weather, but I merely respond with a series of mumbles.

Luckily, I can listen to people’s conversations and then not feel like such a weirdo afterwards. Because, apparently when in an elevator, you can say whatever you want to someone. See what this lady said to him? What is wrong with people? Then again, it might have been the fellow’s fault for bringing up his kid. No one loves your kid more than you, buddy. Don’t ever forget that.

Weekend plans? Let me hear ’em.
