HEY RIGHT SO this is an idea we had jotted down from a while ago. Yuko had this conversation in the car with her Dad on her way from Rochester to New Jersey ... she told me about it later and I couldn't stop laughing. I am laughing about it now ...
Everyone hears something during childhood that follows them far later into life than is strictly reasonable, and that something is always pretty embarrassing when it comes out. This was obviously one of mine (until a week ago) ... another one was mispronouncing "h'or doeuvres" (I used to pronounce it "hors devors"). A friend's father told her that the hazard lights switch in the car was the eject seat, and she believed it until she was in high school. I grew up eating my french toast with ketchup, and I didn't realize that was unusual till high school either.
Basically what we are trying to say is that if Michael Vick really wanted to bet on animals fighting each other, he could have just played some Pokémon.
(Yuko and I will be at Katsucon this weekend; please, if you happen to be there, come by and say hey! We love meeting you guys. )
Hey guys, the comic will up some time Tuesday! We're running a little slow here ... we didn't get back from NJ until around 7 PM today, so we've been unpacking and catching up on work that we missed. Yuko has actually already drawn and inked it, but we're both pretty tired so we're going to bed! Check back tomorrow - I'll twitter an update as well.
I spent a bit of time last week making a heating pad out of two $1 bandanas (one for a pillow case), half of a $2 bag of rice, and some chamomile and mint teas that no one was drinking. If you are poor and cold a lot, THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULD NOT MAKE ONE OF THESE. Here are the instructions I used (although I segmented the bag and added some tea to make it smell nice), here are some instructions to make one out of an old sock.
... so this happened while I was away! But I hear John said it very deadpan, and then immediately returned to eating. These things happen.
The Superbowl was this past Sunday! I was in an airport for most of it, and everyone there was glued to the TVs. You could hear people cheering and yelling every time something important happened. It was an interesting experience.
Speaking of the Superbowl, this bit of news is circulating around -- eh, I'll quote the Gizmodo article:
I'll be at Ohayocon this weekend with Hawk doing the Applegeeks thing! I'll have Phoenix Down shirts! Come say hi! :D It's always nice to meet readers.
