Things I’ve Named

with 15 comments

So, help me out here and tell me all about the inanimate objects you’ve named so I don’t feel like a complete sociopath. Bonus points for truly geeky names. Not that we’re keeping score or anything, no.

I’ve become just like a terrible mess
Searching the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
But the crowds keep me coming back
Cheering

Lights Come On, Lights Go Off

That final panel represents my car’s engine light going off. Yup, I’m totally lazy clever.

Maybe the sun will shine today
The clouds will blow away
Maybe I won’t feel so afraid
I will try to understand
Either way

Momma Dukes Takes My Picture

Don’t hate, she’s still getting the hang of this…technology thing. Did you know they say “whiskey” in Latin American countries and “potato” in Spain when it comes to picture-taking? No? Well, now you do.

Now if she does it like this
Will you do it like that?

Trying to Send a Simple Otter E-Card

with 9 comments

I blame the…Internet?

To rectify this situation, here’s what the e-card might’ve looked like:

I know, I know. Dorkasaur, right here…

Well I suppose we’ll all make our judgment call
We’ll walk it alone, stand up tall, then march to the fall
So we better be happy now that we’ll all go home

Letting It Do Its Thing

with 7 comments

Actually, I have a second carbon monoxide detector plugged in elsewhere, but I’ve been waiting for the old one’s battery to just die out. Let me tell you, those warnings LIE. As of writing this post [10/13/08], some two weeks later, the thing is buried deep in my closet and still beeping. Hm, that warrants repeating: still beeping. Low battery, my ass!

Well, I’m stubborn enough now to just wait it out…

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

I lived in lies all my life,
And I’ve been living here for a long, long time,
And I know its been coming down a while now,
When it shows, then you get me on the dial,
But right now you’re half way around the world,
Maybe I’ll see better days, but I’m not so sure I will.

It Is Time to Rock the Vote

with 12 comments

Well, the voter thing isn’t complete. I have to mail in a bunch of…photocopied documents. And have I done it? Nope. What have I been doing instead?

Reading comics, duh.

I kid, I kid. I be busy than a beaver with a butt of bubble bombs. (I don’t know what that means.) But it’s true, I’ve been busy.

Anyways, if you look to the right you’ll see I’ve signed up for Twitter. I don’t really plan to use it for much other than to let you readers know what’s going on here at MyLifeComics–such as when the next update might be and so forth–but do not be surprised if you see such Tweets as:

  • Eating a sandwich
  • Missing my sandwich
  • Crying
  • Cursing my PS2 to Hell and back
  • Running around naked and making baa baa noises

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle…

My Scanner Hates My Existence

with 3 comments

Yup, it’s a bitter beast. I’ve been using it for, oh, a week and some days now and I’m still not used to its mannerisms. Plus, that way it vrrhh vrrhh vrrhhs at me in the middle of the night makes me a little bit nervous. Let’s all go back to the Stone Age!
