Off to the South

I hate making those parchment narrations. This is the last comic I use those with, I am a convert to rectangles.

My parents are house-sitting this weekend while we take a break and head to the Keys. There has to be some compensation for living in Florida and beaches are it. I don’t know what we’ll be doing this weekend and I don’t care if it’s absolutely nothing. After months of nausea, a sinus infection, two colds and all the body malfunctions that come with pregnancy I’ve come to appreciate how great it can feel to just lie down somewhere. The Keys are supposed to be very dog-friendly so Moose is also taking a trip. Enjoy your Memorial Day!

Nostalgia Chick

I do so much web development work now I need something good to listen to to keep coding from getting too dull, and I’ve become a recent convert to small-scale web series. The generation after mine has some impressive amateur video editing skills, I guess that’s what comes from growing up with a Nintendo controller in your hands. As soon as I saw the Nostalgia Chick’s list of video episodes I was in love; it’s an impossible collection of commentary on everything I grew up with. Coming at the end of Generation X and being a huge animation fan, I share a few more favorite movies and shows with the younger set than the average. I can tell sometimes that “Chick” is a younger chick than I am, especially when episodes on Power Rangers, Pokeman and Captain Planet come up, but the My Little Pony Movie? I’m all over that.

The Ordeal Continues

I’m going to have to do some editing this weekend to get the next set of Communist Pea panels sized for web.

I might as well sit at the computer this weekend, I feel like doing precious little else. Morning sickness is a farce by the way. Call it “Non-Stop” instead. It seems that I am several weeks past when most women stop feeling sick and start enjoying pregnancy, I suspect I am destined to hate every minute of it. So here is something positive to end with: Baby Tree Sloths.
