Comment on Why Didn't I Tell Her? of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

Jess and I both really like animal and travel docs
Jess was telling me a funny story how she was in the dining hall and how "All By Myself" and how terrible it was how she was in fact eating all by herself.

Similarly, yesterday at the dining hall, the radio just so happened to be playing Janis Joplin's "Piece Of My Heart"- otherwise it's a good song, but in certain circumstances, it makes you want to hurl projectile vomit at the speakers in the ceiling (yuck)!

If you don't have a special significant other on this lovely commercialized holiday, don't forget that you're never alone, and, when you spread positivity in the face of adversity, good things usually come your way!
Comment on My "Pharmaceutical Advertising" Homework Assignment of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

"Just a little homework! Tonight!"
I usually don't get homework assignments in which I am allowed to utilize my drawn' skillz, so this was a nice change of pace. It was even...fun? I also enjoyed getting homework grade points for talking about myself (oh ho ho ho...).

Also, I will most likely be going "full throttle" again with illustration commissions and 2nd drafts for one of my side-jobs, so you may find that updates will be even slower again, but do not fret! Comics will come (...eventually)! D-:

Also also, I was in a thrift store with Shannon today and there must have been ~20 Johnny Mathis records and all the clothes seemed to be one size/type (1970's prairie Mom)...I wonder if it was from the owner's Mom's old closet 0__0.

How has everyone's winter holiday been?
Mine has been pretty nice. I've gotten the time to catch up with friends, family, reading...vidja games...

Just in time for the holidays!
Probably because of his science background, Steve has a pretty good knack for baking (you're essentially following a protocol, like with an experiment). I, on the other hand, have no patience for exact measurements and little room for error.

I was especially proud of myself (oh, ho ho ho) for making an awesome (oh, ho ho ho) improvisation with my Thanksgiving contribution this past weekend. I was assigned the task of whipping up some candied yams, and I found Emeril Lagasse's recipe for them (where he "kicks it up a notch!"). My Mom got really mad when she found this out ("Why you got to do a harder recipe? Now we all won't be eating until TEN". FYI, my recipe only took about 30 minutes longer in prep and cooking than her usual recipe).

Here is the recipe I used for a foundation: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/rhodas-candied-sweet-potatoes-kic ked-up-recipe.print.html

We didn't have any oranges or orange juice, so I substituted a grapefruit (I used grapefruit rind and squeezed out the juice). We didn't have any bourbon, but I substituted it with rum since I had had rum in grapefruit soda before, and I knew the flavors complimented each other well. The result? My Dad saying my dish was the highlight of the Thanksgiving dinner (oh, ho ho ho) AND I witnessed my Mom helping herself begrudgingly to two portions ;-) I only tease my Mom, though- she gave me the tip to scoop out excess fluid prior to baking the yams to prevent them from getting overly soggy.

Anyway, my dear American readers, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving...and...to all my other readers, thank you for continuing to check into the site! :-)

"Long time no post, eh?"
Hi, friends!

Sorry again for the sporadic updates... I can't say for sure when the next comic will be up, but... let's just say it'll be a surprise- wh-hoo!

A jammy, unintentionally-sway-in-your-seat-in-public kind of song. I like the womens' vocals- reminds me a lot of Lucius. I can't say I enjoy much of their other stuff (at least from the one album I listened to), but "Sonsick" is definitely a must-listen!
Comment on Listen to the Song If You Haven't Already of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

And it burned, burned, burned...
How is it going? Are you as excited as I am to wear patterned layers, leggings...and most importantly...HATS?!?!

Anyway, if you have yet to listen to Johnny Cash, and just want to listen to a max of 3 songs by him, I recommend:

1) "Hurt"
I'm pretty sure this is the last single he sang before his death. Even when old, arthritic, and legally blind, he still is able to croon tunes that sway one's soul. OH- and the music video gets to me every time D-':. My Dad was obsessed how it looks like the the ghost of his wife is haunting him in the vid.

2) "Man In Black"
When I first heard this for the first time, I was just like, "UNH! So much SOUL! Yeah, Johnny Cash!" The lyrics here are probably my favorite he's ever written.

3) "Jackson"
A sweet ditty duet with his wife.

Comics will be put up more sporadically for a while
The days are slowly cooling down! You know what that means, right? Driving in my car with its broken air conditioning (and I ain't payin' $700 for a new condenser when we will probably donate ol' Black Beauty next year) will soon become more tolerable! *0*

It also means that another school year will begin for me... my last full year of classes (I still have another full year afterwards of rotations- weh)! I'm still working on my commissioned part-time project, so comic-drawing will have to be pushed to the side.

But y'all can check the site periodically, folks! You may find a surprise comic update, yeehoo!

When I was in a grocery store with Steve, he was insensitively pointing at the plethora of magazine covers with Robin Williams face going, "Dead! ...Dead! ...DEAD! Isn't it funny how magazines want to capitalize on this kind of thing?" and then laughing to himself. >___>

I comforted him though when one of his idols, Roger Ebert died by telling him "At least in his illness, he still got to keep doing what he loved." :-^

If only we had a chimp to groom us
Hiking + humidity is a lot more fun if it's followed by ice cream!

Last week I went with the Zachs to a nearby state park (only about 30 minutes away). We actually saw what I think was a black rat snake: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/ensp/pdf/snake_broch07.pdf

I almost stepped on it until Tallzach pointed it out. Quoth Lil' Zach: "I actually saw it too, but I thought in my brain, naw, there are no snakes in NJ-that can't be one!"
Comment on I Think Steve Likes the Attention, Though of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

100th post on this site, whee!
I finished inking and shading this comic to the Jeff Corwin Experience- which is now on Netflix- yaaay! I used to watch it when I was younger with my sister. It's fun to watch it now and point out where things have obviously been staged. I am also a big fan of how Jeff Corwin respects the animals he shows to viewers. He doesn't rile them up unnecessarily for TV drama.

EDIT: He does like to bring the animals close to the camera for viewers to get a better look though, if that means him picking them up when they are already scared out of their wits!

Also, Steve laughed pretty hard at the last panel before calling me a "little jerk".
