SPACE BOOTY

Mon, 05/25/2009 - 23:33 by Ananth in response to luckily they are all nerdy

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):

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. 

CONYE

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. 

john's element is fire

OH MAN we cameo'd in Questionable Content! Check it out! Hahaha, Yuko looks mega cute and my sideburns are sufficiently large. Thanks Jeph! 

It's not an orca ...

(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!

dream-supper

Thu, 04/23/2009 - 00:17 by Ananth in response to REM cooking

I've never dreamt of cooking anything, much less cooked it from dream-memory - but Yuko has! When she dreamt of pumpkin and chicken curry, John and I demanded that she make it. It cooked in the crock pot all day, filling the house with dream-smells, and then when evening rolled around we had dream-supper. We ate it out of real bowls with real spoons. On a 1 to 10 Magic scale, it was about an 8. 

AAAAAAAAAAAA

Having been sick for roughly 2 weeks now, I was visiting with my mother for some much needed convalescence. Around 4 AM one night, we were roused by the smoke detector going off intermittently. It continued to do so, at random intervals, for the next 15 hours. Yuko and John stopped by to eat dinner with us the following night, and John was kind enough to take a look at the smoke detector (he is a pretty handy guy and could probably build a house using only three of the fingers on his right hand). 

Phoenix Down shirts back on sale!

Mon, 04/13/2009 - 23:09 by Ananth in response to ananth's tennessee plague

Hey guys! First and foremost is the announcement that Phoenix Down shirts are back up for sale! Bigcartel is providing us with a snazzy storefront. These are the extra shirts we ordered, some of which we've sold at conventions past. 

Iron Johnny Wander!

Oh man I think I am almost back to normal ... I haven't been this sick in a while. Yuko's been mega-sweet and totally patient while she takes care of me ... thanks babe!

Oh oh so we got one of those Iron Gym pull-up bars! The way they're set up, utilizing weight and counter-weight, it's pretty slick! Also, awesome to have around. I'll be working, and if I'm taking a break or I need to think a problem out, I can go do a couple of pull-ups in the meantime. It's also become an unspoken rule that if you walk by the pull-up bar, you've got to do at least try doing some pull-ups.
