Hey guys, so Yuko and I were at Setsucon this past weekend and we spent time with, in no particular order: 

A quick note about comment pop

Hey everyone, if your comments don't show up immediately, don't panic! I assure you they're somewhere in the system, they just take a little bit longer to propegate now. Your comment should appear in a minute or so from when you post it. Thanks!!

I wish I could say I made this up

Conrad's birthday is towards the end of December, so it was cold and we all had to spend the day working so we wanted to do something pretty relaxed and local. Dave and Busters is right up the road, so we went there and played Ghost Recon and Conrad played Pump, and when Mike arrived he bought Conrad a few drinks. We sat around and talked - Mike told us about his time in Iraq and then we started talking about the Air Force generally and somehow, last call rolled around.

The actual story is that my dad is going to see one of his old middle school friends who now lives in Nara (which is famous for its deer shrine).  The fellow's nickname back-then (but really, who keeps in touch with their friends from middle school?) was 'Monkey' (or I suppose 'Saru').

My dad's been swearing otherwise, but I still think the bad monkey with the baseball bat is supposed to be him.

not the monkey from family guy jeez c'mon guys 

In the bank teller's defense, Yuko had just gotten a haircut and it was pretty short. This has happened at least once before, too, in a Target I think. A woman mistook Yuko for her son, and that was probably more awkward than this one. 

augh this is making me hungry

As you might have guessed from my name, I'm Japanese.  (well, half.)  My language skills are abysmal -- I was born and raised in the US -- but I managed to grow up with a decent amount of culture.  New Year is the only holiday we celebrate, but it's a big deal and my dad is an awesome cook.  Ananth had the pleasure of joining us this year! :D

Happy New Year!

This teaches me to use bottles of weird stuff at my folks' place without reading what it is first.

Ananth and I are actually at a New Year's get-together* right now.  Happy New Year's, everyone!  Hope you had a good one.  Ananth's busy giving well-wishes to friends, so I've been left to give the blog tonight.  Apologies, I'm no good at this.

Subbing over at Applegeeks

Hawk's out of town for the rest of the month and it looks like I'm subbing for the big Monday comics over at Applegeeks.  The first one's up, I hope you guys like it. :D

To the people who know a thing or two about my menagerie of characters: I might've put a few in this one.

SANTA CATS BROUGHT YUKO A PRESENT

Tue, 12/30/2008 - 00:05 by Ananth in response to STOP EATING RIBBONS

This is the second time the cats have done this - apparently Yuko's old room is their favorite place to barf. Gross. 

This is a drawing of our door, and we have photographic proof:
