Hazardous Duty

It’s been a while since my last comic, so I’m a little rusty. Today’s comic is the result of me tinkering around on the new computer. I was setting things up and decided to try creating a comic. I think this new computer will do fine.

BTW: There’s another comic in the queue for next Saturday if you’re interested.

Loveless Leftovers

So most people know about the strange U.S. custom of eating a giant turkey feast on the last Thursday of November. If you didn’t, well, that’s what we do. After which we have a lot of badly aging leftovers stuffed into our refrigerators for about a week. My mother used to create a myriad of soups, casseroles, and concoctions from the remains. I dare say my dad probably has a few Cool Whip containers that she’d left behind in the deep freezer from Thanksgivings long past… And knowing my dad, he’d probably eat them too.

Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving.

The Invitation

So yes, I’ve got an Ello account, and I have no idea what it’s good for. Here it is: https://ello.co/f2x.

As I skimmed through the other users, it would seem that the vast majority are identifying themselves as “graphic designer”. Yeah… It feels like I’m in a room full of people drinking the most pretentious sounding beverages at Starbucks, and I’m standing there with a used styrofoam cup half full of a tepid watered down generic instant coffee.

Personally I get the impression that this site isn’t going to be a Facebook killer. Honestly I doubt it will become as popular as MySpace. People will sign up out of curiosity , post a few things, promptly forget about it, but not before they blog about how awful the experience was.

So maybe that’s what Ello is good for: Unifying the internet in proclaiming how bad it sucks.

Infectious Humor

To be honest, I wasn’t much to speak of on my APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test), and PT wasn’t exactly my forte either. Still, I don’t really think I’d want be be heading into that part of the world at this point in time.

I don’t usually do two comics in a single weekend… Heck, I don’t usually do three panel comics for that matter either. It’s just that I’ve been making some progress on the soldier characters, and I thought I’d just go ahead and toss it out there.

And just where did I suddenly find time to work on the comic? Well, my dog Grace is down with a sinus infection. It’s amazing how much work you can get done on the computer when the dog isn’t always begging to play.
