News will be up later today. After my nap.

I saw whales this week. Freaking whales. I've never seen real live humpback whales before.

In the interest of being thorough, here are some other things I saw this week:

Fish, water, sand, trees, leaves, waves, dirt, mud, birds, clouds, coconuts, pavement, bricks, signs, shirts, shorts, hats, shoes, socks, sandals, glasses, sunglasses, contact lenses, bathing suits, towels, sweatshirts, dogs, leashes, dog toys, dog food, dog poop, webcomics, dog poop bags, ...

My plan to age backwards was working splendidly... until this morning.

For the last three months, I've been sleeping more, exercising somewhat regularly, and feeding on the life forces of those who use my comments section. All this has done wonders for my stress levels. In a few short months, I appear to have aged backwards one or two years. Sincerely. The change would be creepy if it wasn't so damn good looking.

Sadly, that was all some sort of elaborate... [read more]

Overhead Light Fri, 01 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0700

As I wrote this comic, the overhead light turned on and off all by itself.

Know in your heart of hearts: I don't just write this comic, I live it.

Why hello! I am finding myself buried in contract work these days. It’s nice to have the stability, but it doesn’t exactly do wonders for my sleep. That is part of the reason for the short news last week.

You may have noticed,... [read more]

Happy birthday, Dr. Lobster.

At 2am on Thursday, I awoke to the smell of smoke.

I checked the outlets. Nothing.

I checked the kitchen. Nothing.

I also checked my email. It wasn’t like it was an emergency or anything.

All throughout the house, no sign of fire.

I went outside. Yes, in my underwear (why do you always ask that?). I walked a few houses down and found the that smell faded. I tried the other direction, too. The mesquite BBQ smell was definitely... [read more]

Have you ever confused at USB cable with a Star Wars children's book?

Amazon has.

I’ve been waiting all week for a much-needed replacement cord. In its place, I received a delightful storybook about the Force.

Instead of using my tablet monitor to work all weekend, it seems I’ll be reading about the continuing adventures of Kylo Ren.

I’d call that a big win.

My mail carrier was out this week. In her place, a woman sorted mail while on the phone. I couldn’t make out much, but I heard the following:

“Darryl is out, ‘cause he’s dead.”

“No, Joe is out. He’s dead too.”

“I don’t know how we’re going to pull this off.”

Then she saw me watching, scowled, and got real quiet.

It’s already an interesting year.

Urgent Update Fri, 28 Dec 2018 00:00:00 -0700

Look, I know you have stress.

I know there are real things out there that keep you up at night, that worry you, that take years off your life. So I will spare you the three paragraph rant fest I just wrote about Windows Updates.

Yes, today’s comic absolutely happened. Yes, I’m aware that I’ve griped about Windows Updates for four... [read more]

I can't say for sure, but I think processed chicken kebabs, dried out rice, waffles, and peanuts might not have been the best choice for dinner. The slurry didn't mix as well as I had hoped.

Still, it's important to keep learning as an adult... so in a way, all this was good for me.

How's your winter solstice treating you? I'm assuming that, unlike last year, you're sending me a gift for the holidays. Should I expect something small, or will you... [read more]
