New journal comics over at These Sweet Memories

leave a comment »

So, the last update here on MyLifeComics was a comic about getting married in two months. And here’s an update to that, some two three months later. I got married! Look, here’s proof:

Mmm…cake.

Anyways, I never got to announce the true end of MyLifeComics, but yeah…it’s over.Sorry, kids. I’m rebranding my journal comics over at These Sweet Memories. If you were a fan of what I did here, please continue to follow the adventures of my sometimes boring, sometimes not-so-boring life over there. And tell everybody you know; it’s hard starting out fresh all over again. Link, link, link is as follows:

Getting married in two months and there’s lots to do

with 5 comments

There’s more thingies that could be added here, but…uh, I ran out of paper.

Two months left to live in the bachelorhood (see, that’s funny cause it’s almost sounds like living in the neighborhood), but really all that means to me is two months left until Tara time. It’s going to go fast and slow and crazy wild. Wish us luck!

Leave what you know now
Put those feelings underground
Fill your heart with strange new sound

Wedding Registry Love

with 8 comments

Seriously, people. I mean, look at this thing and just fall in love:

It’s screaming at me, “FILL ME WITH BOOKS! PUH-LEASE! I’M SO EMPTY, SO LONELY…SO COLD INSIDE!”

Also, registering for gifts is an odd beast. Maybe I’ll say more on that later. The above is our biggest item (size- and dollar-wise) and we fully expect no one to get it, which is fine and all. But booklovers can dream though, right?

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I’d love you to love me
I’m begging you to beg me

Pre-Cana Marriage Classes and the Awkward Questions

with 8 comments

For those that don’t know (and that’s probably many considering the whopping two paragraphs on Wikipedia), Pre-Cana is a number of courses that allow a couple to get married in the Catholic church. Sometimes the classes can stretch over three weekends, but Tara and I knocked it out in one big gulp last Saturday. It was…all right. A little awkward at times (see above), and my biggest gripe with the whole deal was that the instructors already assumed you and your future spouse fought and had many deep, problematic issues to work out from the get-go. That’s not the case with Tara and I. I’m peanut butter, she’s chocolate; we complement each other greatly, and nothing can stop us. But then when you tell them this, it’s still something negative because it’s not good to not fight ever…or some silliness like that. To each his own, I guess.

But yeah, we survived eight hours of Pre-Cana and even got to have mass in the chapel we’re getting married in. It was nice. My head didn’t explode there.

I believe in you even through the tears and the laughter
I believe in you even though we be apart
I believe in you even on the morning after

The Broken Windshield Wiper

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

Bonus Comics from August 2008, Part Two

with one comment

As promised, here’s another two bonus comics that never made it online back in August 2008. In the first one, please try not to focus on how badly I drew the waitress, but rather how annoyingly she asked us in a sing-song voice if we liked our turkey burgers (we did):

And then there was an escapade involving my father’s cell phone and the post office:

The Day of Reckoning and Exchanging Gifts

with 10 comments

2008-12-27

Ah, the return of the great chibi Paul! Between Tara and I, this day was jokingly referred to as the Day of Reckoning. It marks the first time in all my multitudinous relationships that I’ve ever had to do such a thing. You know, have a sitdown with the girlfriend’s father and explain what our relationship is about. Guess I’m an adult now though. Anyways, I had all the symptoms of a nervous soul/creepy neighbor hiding in a van: sweaty palms, uneasy giggle, shifty eyes, flushed face, and so on. But we got through it, for better or for worse.

And then it was time to exchange Christmas gifts:

Er, my bad. Also, this might be a bit funnier now that you have the above information. Tears make the holiday, right? 😛

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through

I was walking along some downtown avenue
I was whistling a new song to myself
And it went, it went something like this one
But I just couldn’t make it end

We’re on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride
Maybe you wonder where you are
I don’t care
Here is where time’s on our side
Take you there
