Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Thu, 01/01/2009 - 02:02 by Aido in response to read instructions before proceeding

This teaches me to use bottles of weird stuff at my folks' place without reading what it is first.

Ananth and I are actually at a New Year's get-together* right now.  Happy New Year's, everyone!  Hope you had a good one.  Ananth's busy giving well-wishes to friends, so I've been left to give the blog tonight.  Apologies, I'm no good at this.

We've been spending the holidays with my parents, which explains the terrible abundance of comics about me.  (sorry.)  That'll be remedied in a few days when we get back to the apartment with Conrad and John.

Hello to the FRC and thank you for venison and also the pleasure of your company. :D


*"get-together" is a strong word.


Mildly Ironic?

Although I would have to admit the mildly disgusting nature of such happening, perhaps some female hormones would do you some good? (In a very general sense.)

Very much reminded me of the skirt comic, and although it was just a coincidence, seems very sketchy to me...

Also, Happy New Year.

Happy New Year Yuko!

My friend has a habit of doing stuff like that as well, with similarly humorous effects. As for the recent comic's subject matter don't worry we like you Yuko so its interesting to see what hijinks you get yourself into.

Btw, thank you for filling in with Applegeeks! Its good to see you on a project of that scope again, even if its a little while subbing. I know i"m probably not the only one who misses your Fallen comic!

I prescribe death metal

At first I was afraid to find out what that stuff was. But it wasn't anywhere near as disgusting as I feared.

Fortunately your exposure can be easily countered by spending some time listening to some good old fashioned death metal.

Did you use menopause

Did you use menopause cream?? I find that hilarious.

Happy new year's. My resolution is to get bombed at your apartment. Within the next month, you better make sure your place is Mark-proof.


Comment by Aido Thu, 01/01/2009 - 15:37

It can also be used to decrease the effects of PMS by keeping hormone levels consistent.  But, ah, yes.

OHH NO, we'll make sure to stock up on rations and prepare for bombing to commence.

Oh, and on the fateful night

Oh, and on the fateful night I'll be bringing RISK.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you (Aido), Ananth, Conrad, and everyone else whose names I don't know!

Hope you have a great 2009, and hope we get to keep reading Johnny Wander! :)

Happy new year!

Oh dear. Hormone replacement at age 20something = bad.

You are not "no good" at blogging. Why do you think people hang around your LJ? It's not just for the arts, I promise.

I heard if you use those

Comment by conrad Fri, 01/02/2009 - 09:19

I heard if you use those kinds of cremes and you're a boy you grow girl-parts. Just saying.

Takes a lot more than that

Comment by Decad (not verified) Fri, 01/02/2009 - 11:50

If rubbing some creams on changed your gender then a lot more people would do it. Hell I'd do it for the lulz.

Happy New Years.

Hey, I saw this strip in its infancy sitting on my couch!

Venison was indeed quite yummy.

It was great to have you guys out!

Hold on...

Comment by Decad (not verified) Fri, 01/02/2009 - 18:03

That makes you one of the parents?

Is it just me or does it seem a bit bizarre that the parent commented on the site and mayhaps even reads the comic? Or am I just stuck in the 90s when barely anyone understood computers?

No, Yuko drew it on the

Comment by Ananth Fri, 01/02/2009 - 21:27

No, Yuko drew it on the couch at her apartment. 

Our parents do read the comics though, so no, it's not bizarre. 

Conrad wants to get in touch with you - please e-mail him at Thanks!

Funnier days

Comment by Decad (not verified) Sat, 01/03/2009 - 04:41

I remember the days back when people could easily be convinced that computers required infrequent pizza sacrifices to continue functioning or that they did indeed run on black magic and goat blood. Ahhh fun times.

And why does the thought that he wants to talk to me fill me with dread and a fear in the pit of my stomach?

I deal with this everyday

Comment by Scott K (not verified) Fri, 01/02/2009 - 22:12

I have 5 room-mates 3 of which are girls, and only one shower. On any given day who knows what might end up washing me, I just pick a bottle at random and go.

Thank you, Wikipedia!

I had to look up what progesterone was. While reading the intro paragraph of the article, I started to trip over that word, so I started calling it "Preggerts Cream"..... I just realized how dirty that sounds, rofl!

Happy New year to everyone! :D

Is that a...

Holy cow, is your Mom using a Cat Book Pro computer?

The Cat Book Pro was too much.

Comment by Aido Mon, 01/05/2009 - 11:19

 Naw, she's just using a regular Cat Book.

Are Cat Books real?

I wish there were stickers like that so I could make my iMac more interesting. Apple gave me a bunch of apple logo decals with my computer and my iPod and I have not a single clue as to what to do with them.

Ah geez.

I empathize with you, Yuko. Ever since I moved out using products from my parent's house has been a dangerous venture.

I find myself wondering if she even took her glasses off when in the shower.
