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.
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.
Hey everyone! Wow, thank you so much for the turnout on the contest, but it is officially closed!! The winner will be announced next Thursday! Sorry, but I now have 600 of these to go through; it's gonna take me some time. ;)
This was certainly not one of my finer moments. Fearing for the safety of the plastic pipes in our old apartment, I simply started disposing of the grease out the second-story window, which left a pleasant little pattern in the snow below. Little did I know, of course, that all the grease was actually sinking below the snow until around March when the snow melted. You could see a grease stain in the concrete below that must have measured a half-meter in diameter. No lie, it was kind of gross.
I'm doing this while everyone is away, and they're going to have to deal with it when they get back. My excitement: incontainable. See, on Sunday I got very bored and I put together a meme generator for Johnny Wander and had a blast watching what people put together on Twitter. Then it struck me: why stop there! Why not hold a contest to see who can make the best meme? And so:
Yuko's father is an interesting dude. I'm pretty sure we could do a comic solely about him. I'm afraid to impart too many interesting stories, though, because I'm sure they would all make awesome comics ... though Yuko would probably object to drawing her father and her brother fighting in her hallway.
(Quick note: Phoenix Down shirts shipped today! Sorry for the delay!)
Yuko's birthday was on Saturday! She had a small group of people at the last minute. Everyone ate beef curry, and then she made them drink and watch Twilight (possibly the only way to get through that movie). By the way, that's Jamie in the first panel - he reviews a number of things over at Angry Zen Master, and he's also the illustrator for Erfworld, one of Time Magazine's 2007 graphic novels of the year. Anyway!
