When asked to comment, Yuko Ota grumbled loudly and left the room.

In case you were wondering, our eggistential crisis is over. Thanks for all the recipe suggestions! 

Rook actually came to Yuko's parents' house with us this year! Which means he's meeting Mika and Gonta, which means you guys will get some comics out of it. I've got notes for a lot of 'em, so I'm going to wait a little bit and cull out the best stuff. 

Great Eggspeggtations

I don't hate eggs, and they're not terribly eggspensive, but ughhh. I guess I should have eggspected to get sick of them, especially when the rate of consumption goes up eggsponentially.

There's nothing I can do to make that better for you, so I'll just leave it there. Please, don't thank me. I do it for you. 

Don't listen to him

EDIT: Reader Nate and his lovely girlfriend sent us a corrected version of the comic. Thanks guys!

True story: I once made grilled cheese with a hairdryer in college! The girl I borrowed it from wanted nothing to do with me after she found out. ): And the grilled cheese turned out bad, too - so not worth it. 

Brrrr.

We weren't originally going to post this, but what the hell! The internet issue is fixed! Sadly it's still freezing in here. All of us are wearing some combination of layers like Yuko is - she wins for most layers, though. Brrr.

I have yet to take the plunge, which is odd - I'm usually the one with the sweet tooth. I don't know how I feel about that oily residue, though -- it doesn't sound appetizing? I'm going to wait for independent confirmation (i.e. you guys and gals). Some of you must have tried this! Google yields real results, so this is definitely a thing that people do.

Oh, designer jokes. Typically when a designer puts something together for print, they are working in a CMYK color space - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and the K is for Black (as in Key Black). It has to do with the way printers are set up. Anyway! The point is that Rook's tongue is magenta, his eyes are yellow, he is all black ... only the cyan was missing! UNTIL NOW. 

Okay okay you guys don't care.

Yuko's got some new art up on her Tumblr! Take a look. 

Ughhh I feel so bad.

We haven't kept a car since we moved to Brooklyn - public transit and walking get us where we need to go 99% of the time. When we're outside the city is a different story, but luckily Yuko's parents are kind enough to lend us a car when the need arises. And then we went and did this! I'm sorry, Yuko's parents. You are very nice to us.

Dress rehearsal

Tue, 11/30/2010 - 18:07 by Ananth in response to bridesmaid dresses is hard

Yuko got some great advice for places to look at bridesmaid dresses back in this post, so she picked a day and I went along as moral support. Yuko's on the smaller side; I should have bought her scuba gear, she was swimming in them. But! She did find a dress and get it ordered, and that's a relief for her. Thank you again! 

Sorry Yuko!

It's Aaron again (Master of the Fried Plantain), and Miss Julia, and myself - all non-carnivores to varying degree. Yuko is speaking to her audience. Clearly!

Yuko has a guest appearance over at Dirt Between My Toes! Rad!

Happy Thanksgiving to our domestic readers! My brother is visiting from California, so our family is together for the first time in quite a while. We're all catching up.
