Busy getting work done while Yuko is in Japan! Will keep this short: We'll be at MoCCA in NYC and TCAF in Toronto, Canada! Details to come!
Catch you next week!
also by what do you mean "friends"?
Friends with benefits
I buy the worst kinds of foods when I'm hungry. Fast food sounds so much better when your gut is rumbling.
Shopping hungry will cloud your judgement: Not only that you'll buy the food you want to eat or sounds yummy to eat, but after you've eaten, you'll realize you bought all the wrong things! It's a total waste of money.
Lunch first, shop later. No regrets.
THIS IS WHAT I WAS LIKE THE OTHER DAY when I went shopping Ananth I feel for you ;c;
I am glad we had a chance to meet each other
It's not only like that when I'm hungry, it's the same when I feel that I need a reward for something (like finishing a project or when I finish work early).
Luckily, my girlfriend and I usually go grocery shopping together, so we try to keep each other from buying stuff on a whim. Knowing or planning what you're going to have for dinner certainly helps as well.
That last panel needs to made into a shirt!
This is precisely something that is discussed between my sister and myself when we go shopping. XDD
And now to make shopping for you all the more difficult. Did you know that Girl Scout cookies can be found in your local supermarket? No seriously. One of the companies that makes the cookies is a subsidiary of Keebler, which makes the more popular cookies all year round under a different name. Thin Mints are known as Keebler Grasshoppers and Samoas are known as Keebler Coconut Dreams. Good luck trying to resist cookie shopping now that you know.
I'm in Tokyo... But might be creepy to have a meet-up. Soo...
Have a good stay!! High-five the nigerians in Roppongi... FOR THE LAWLS!!!
I am SO looking forward to see your guys in Toronto!
Wish I could make it to TCAF, but family get together always ends up on the same day. Even though it's about an hour drive for me to go. I swear one day I'll find a way to make it.
I kind of did that this week, but with chips...but I also wasn't super hungry. It's like, I went to the grocery store because I had no food but I didn't know what I wanted but I felt I had to buy stuff, so I bought a loaf of bread and like 3 things of chips.
If I shop hungry I buy a cake or mini wings/wyngz to eat in the car. It's so shameful.
I actually did basically this on Monday. The whole time I was thinking "Jonathan, you're hungry, shouldn't you be more carefully about what you're buying?" and the hungry part of me went "NOPE."
It ended with me at home with £30 of groceries that could fit in two bags. I believe I may also have smoked a cigarette while lying on my bed in exhaustion, I'm not sure.
i dunno, i think Ananth has the right idea about the best groceries to buy. cookies have everything you need in a balanced meal: sugar and awesome.
i wonder if you've got any idea when volume one will be back in stock, by the way?
Sorry for the off-topic, just to let you know that the books have arrived on the other side of the Atlantic, in Portugal. =D
They're awesome. Yuko's is my personal favourite, but they're all really neat. Just wished hers had a bit more of extra material. Bah, whatever, I can't stop drooling over it anyway. *.*
Can't believe I missed you at WonderCon! One of the few times you're on the west coast and I didn't recognize the name of the booth. I must have walked right on by!
Been there... the evil salsa and discount tortilla chip companies are my masters.
Man, the turnout to TCAF is amazing this year. Looking forward to seeing you both.
If I shop hungry I buy whatever I'm in the mood for at the time and ignore stuff I'm not.. which later.. I might wish I'd gotten!
but if I shop full I barely buy anything because it's all too expensive and low quality..
You neglected your duties as the tall one, Ananth. You're there to reach the top shelf.
I reallllyyy wish I could go to TCAF this year, but now that I moved to NYC, I'll have to settle for MOCCA. Good Luck guys!
Never cook pasta when you are starving. You'll just end up with enough to feed an army. Which is perfect if you are a teenage boy.
Yeah, this is basically me everytime I go shopping.
literally the hardest thing to do PROPERLY. if i go shopping hungry, i'll reach for so much junk and pull back and tell myself "no you can't buy that!" but then i'll realize i'm looking into other peoples' carts and thinking "WOW THAT LOOKS TASTY" and it's a terrible experience of hunger and nosiness.
my point is: i understand completely.
