the bravest cat

Mon, 06/01/2009 - 23:15 by Ananth in response to natural defense mechanisms

I periodically visit Yuko's folks with Yuko, and when I do it is not unusual to stumble upon the cats exploring. Mika is the trailblazer - she's fearless and investigates things with great vigor. Gonta, on the other hand, explores primarily to discover new hiding places. As you can tell from the comic above, some hiding places are better than others. I'm just relieved Gonta isn't a cat out in the wild; something just tells me Gonta couldn't hack it. 

That neighbor fellow

It was pretty funny, actually ... the guy sincerely thought Yuko was pointing at him, and her illustration of his reaction is an accurate representation. Actually, I think these days he wears a shirt when he lounges on the balcony ... aw.

Edit: I'm going to be at AKON this weekend with Johnny Wander merchandise (prints and Phoenix Down shirts in limited sizes)!  Stop by and say hello!

Hey all!

Having survived a small trip to NYC I now return to present you with the contest results! Let it be known that we had 555 submissions, and we evaluated every one of them. It wasn't an easy pick; we narrowed it down to 25 or so that we thought were really solid.

That said, congratulations to theredfish for his excellent submission! YOU ARE THE WINNER. This comic had us in stitches at the beginning of judging; an excellent start to the process.

As you get older your tastes change, and you get less excited about some things and more excited about others. Cereal box prizes have maintained a static level of excitement for me, though, from childhood into adulthood. Pouring out breakfast and finding a toy in my bowl fills me with irrational delight, even though I inevitably give them to my Dad, who likes to fiddle with things as he works. Here are some of our favorite prizes (John, post yours in the comments! I'll add it tomorrow): 

Time Extended!

Hey guys. I got caught with some business out of town, which means that Yuko, John and Ananth have not yet gotten to take part in the judging of the contest. Therefore! as I'd like them to be part of it, winners will be announced on Tuesday. Sorry about that!

If you're relatively new to the comic, I apologize! In the past we've covered Yuko's aversion to girly things. It is touched upon again here - clearly, Yuko is not a makeup kinda gal. 

The epilogue to this comic is that George was about to explain why he wanted lipstick, and then I stopped him. I really don't want to know. 

maybe I should get married first

My mom is the youngest of all her siblings, and I think I'm the last of my cousins on her side who has procreated.

And then we visited relatives this weekend with my aunts.

And then everyone was talking about grandkids.

And then came the accusatory eyes.

 

I'm going to have to convince my brother to get a girlfriend and have kids or something.

Just so there are no nay-sayers, I provide photographic proof that they did, in fact, buy me these terrible glasses.

CONYE

Wed, 05/13/2009 - 23:19 by Ananth in response to harder better faster stronger

Yuko, John and I were in NYC recently, and when we were done with our business we took an hour to walk around. We went down to St. Marks, and as we were walking past a vendor, I noticed a rack of Kanye West's trademark glasses. Now, a detour: A few weeks ago, while Conrad was gone to Rochester, Yuko took to defacing his 360 avatar once a day ... John and I pitched in, and together we created CONYE, Conrad's ghetto superstar alter-ego. With that in mind, our thought process should be pretty obvious.

TCAF

Hey guys! We just got back from a trip to TCAF in Toronto! We are all pretty exhausted, but I will put that aside a moment to tell you about the place we stayed.
