News will be posted here when I write it. If I write it. How I write it. Who I write it.

I’m not going to lie. I made today’s comic specifically to send to clients. You, dear reader, were not my target audience.

I’ve done a lot of client work in my time. It helps me avoid my loved ones and gives me something to do instead of enjoying life. It’s nice to have work to do when you get home from a job.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all fun and games. It took me many many years to figure out how to effectively manage client work, and even longer to... [read more]

If you’re like me, you went Kayaking last weekend.

Yeah yeah, it’s cold by you. Whatever. I went Kayaking.

My wife and I loaded up the boat, paddled some distance from the shore, and promptly sank.

Apparently, cracks on the underside of a boat are a bad thing. Thankfully, everyone survived. The water was still fairly shallow. Nothing washed away (not even my filth).

The important part of the story is: One day, very soon, I will go kayaking.... [read more]

Happy belated food day, internet people!!!

Now go shopping or whatever. Get those deals while they last. Buy me something good.

Wow, what a whirlwind mo-- OW! I’ve finally-- OW!!! I’ve-- OW!!!!!!!!

Hang on…

Okay, I’ve switched to my phone.

I managed to bend back a few fingers earlier today. Apparently, that’s frowned upon by my tendons. Since typing is a skill I no longer possess, let’s try this again, dictation style:


Wow. What a whirlwind... [read more]

As an adult, have you ever had orange juice spilled all over you? Without children involved?

I have. Moments ago.

It's surprisingly sweet and refreshing. It truly hits the spot (assuming that spot is your torso). I highly recommend it... under some very specific conditions.

In case you want more details: I'm on a plane. The flight attendant was pouring a cup of juice for a fellow passenger, and he lost his grip of the cup. No big deal. Accidents happen. The... [read more]

Happy retirement to that person I know who just retired.

I'm jealous (and probably will be for decades to come).

I remember...

I couldn't have been older than ten, because I still lived in my parents' house. You know the one. It was tall, wooden, and creaky.

My bedroom was on the second floor. A small, square room situated above the kitchen. On one side of the room was my door. On the other, my bed.

Every night, I would try to fall asleep, and every night I would fail. The only light in the room came from the edges of the window, inches above my bed.

I stared at that... [read more]

At five weeks into the new place, it's major renovation time!


My new landlord decided to give us three days notice that the roof was being redone. After seven days of hammering (a rainstorm caused some delays and puddles indoors), I'm finding myself a bit inconvenienced.

Too bad he forgot to warn us before we moved in. Tooooooo bad.

(I'm sure it slipped his mind)

Due to an overwhelming amount of hammering, I've been enjoying the... [read more]

I’m in the “honeymoon period” of my move.

When relocating, there’s always a few months where nothing is annoying and everything is fresh and new. I’m enjoying it as much as I can. Hawaii is… nice.

I just went Kayaking in the ocean, hit a planetarium, and snorkeled around a coral reef. There are worse ways to spend a week.

I know I’ve been kinda dumpy lately in the news, so I’ll say this: Nothing is perfect, but for the moment, I’m quite... [read more]
