Last Kiss Makes the News

John Lustig has been creating Last Kiss since the early 1990’s. Last Kiss is a comic that pokes fun at the old-time romance comics genre. What makes Last Kiss so interesting is how Lustig uses original romance comics from that time period and replaces the dialogue with witty material from a modern sensibility. It’s a lot of fun, and now Last Kiss has achieved a new level of success and exposure. January marked the start of Last Kiss running weekly in the Seattle Times newspaper in the ‘Life and Times’ section.

Congrats to you John, Love and Last Kisses……

Worst Thing You've Ever Eaten

One of the sales guys I work with claims to have eaten fried baby sparrows. I think there’s a limit to how polite you have to be when eating at someone else’s house, even if it’s in Thailand.

Men in Kilts

Scott hadn’t heard that there’s a trend these days of big guys wearing skirts to be more comfortable. They liken it to wearing a kilt, although a kilt isn’t something you see every day either. The last time I actually saw a guy doing that was at the mall, holding hands with a girl who had on an identical skirt. It was impossible to say who looked better in their skirt, the main difference between them was that her legs had a lot less hair. “Hey, we match!” is something I’m always hearing people say at work, and all two people have to do to hear it is wear somewhat similar colors on the same day. Thank goodness for projects, or after spending 8 hours a day with people 5 days a week we’d run out of things to say to each other.
