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.
Now I know why I don't get sick often. Being sick is dumb. I have been playing an awful lot of Professor Layton, though. Also:
This is a comic idea we've had sitting around for a while! Yuko and I were driving somewhere and we must have been talking about LOLcats or something, because then we started going back and forth with our own LOLimals. It's become a running joke between the two of us every since ... Suffice it to say, this is a very silly comic. XD Indulge us!
Yuko wants me to mention that the art is pretty simple today because she's feeling terribly sick. Yuko's half Japanese, and inherited really good genes from both of her parents, so it's a little weird to see her ill, ever.
All of this took place at the post office from which Yuko and I do most of our shipping. I was mailing off one of our old Phoenix Down shirts so the printer would know what palette to use -- they're arriving this week, by the way!
I gave Yuko a description of this woman and she captured her likeness to an uncanny degree, so I personally cannot look at this comic without getting really creeped out. Good job babe! I th-think.
IF HE HAD BEEN THE MAIN CHARACTER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED FIFTH SENSE (DUDE CONRAD I'M SORRY YUKO THOUGHT OF IT DDD: DON'T BEAT MEEEE)
It's well-documented around here that Conrad actually doesn't have any sense of smell, but it's one of those things that we tend to forget. In a lot of ways it's pretty similar to how forgetful I am about Hawk and Ramadan ... except in this case everyone forgets, so maybe I am just being a jerk to Hawk.
Hey guys! The next update will come a little later than usual ... we try to have the comics up between midnight and 3 AM, but Yuko just cranked out an Applegeeks comic and it's not happening until the morning. Check back Thursday during the day, it'll be up! Yuko's already got it all sketched out. :D
Megan and I have been best friends since we were seven or so years old? And let's be honest, she turned out pretty much better than me in every way. Sorry, mom and dad.
I was probably the first person that Megan called to tell about Dane proposing, but I wound up being the last person to find out. =_= In any case, congratulations to the both of you! You two are great, and great for each other. I'm so happy for you guys!!
