... 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.
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
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.
