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!

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

We Are Sushi Coma

with 4 comments

To make this post even more exciting, I’m going to list everything we gorged on tonight:

  • Bowl of edamame (salty, yummy)
  • Spicy tuna rolls (with bonus crunchies!)
  • Philadelphia rolls (cream cheese sushi is something you have to experience)
  • San Fransisco rolls (a new one for us; pretty good)
  • Dragon Tempura rolls (we splurged for this, and it was hard to eat, but we soldiered on nonetheless)
  • Green tea ice cream (best way to cool down, yo)
  • It was a meal fit for kings and queens…and us.

    Everybody’s got new orders
    be a nice girl and kiss the warders
    now the teacher is away
    all the kids begin to play

    Date Yet?

    with 7 comments

    Though the date is being narrowed down. Most likely between now and the end of the world.

    The glib replies, the same defeats
    Keep your finger on important issues
    With crocodile tears and a pocketful of tissues

    It’s true. Not even a thousand Goombas with lasers for eyes could take me down.

    Tara’s Breath of Life

    with 5 comments

    One more for the night:

    guestcom

    This happened on our way back from Philcon in November 2008, but I’m only getting around to posting it now because…well, I can be forgetful at times. Anyways, Tara is probably going to be the next Mother Theresa. She’s that kind, especially to frozen bees. And she’s allllllllllllllll mine.

    So yeah, enjoy. I’ll have to look around and see what else I can post to keep this place happening while I get Supertown going…

    I LOVE THE RAIN

    There’s a 94% chance that if you yourself don’t love the rain that I don’t love you at all.

    Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
    I feel alive and the world I’m turning inside out
    I’m floating around in ecstasy
    So don’t stop me now, don’t stop me
    Cause I’m having a good time, having a good time

    How Tara and I First Met Each Other

    with 12 comments

    StrangersToEachOther

    This is the comic I submitted to a magazine recently with an open call on the theme of “how we met.” Alas, I did not make the final cut. So enjoy it here, free of charge. Or, if you’re a Tara/Paul hater: va la scopata voi stessi.

    In other news, I’m working on a new webcomic project called Supertown. Scripting is going well, and after an upcoming vacation (thank the stars!) I’ll get down to the nitty-gritty and actually draw the thing. If superheroes and adorable moments are your thing, you might wanna stick around for this one.

    And I’m going to have a story published in the next issue of Farrago’s Wainscot, which goes live on July 1. It involves birds and sex and sorta-maybe-vampires. People related to me should probably not read it unless they want to be disturbed a wee bit.

    So yeah, that’s about it. Also, if you haven’t congratulated Kelly on her good news, get to it. She’s going to beat me at getting famous, but well, that’s okay. I’ll catch up soon enough.

    In pastures blue and green
    I’ll follow you and you’ll follow me
    My fabrics mystery
    I’ll wave your loyalty in the freezing breeze
    So desperately
    I think I see, see my life
