Strip for 5/6/2001  
The Strip
Mail This Strip


Tody's strip was one of mayhem and misfortune for me, due to the fact that I still haven't gotten the hang of that hand-eye coordination thing yet. I accidentally knocked over my ink bottle while touching up the strip and managed to spill permanent black ink everywhere.. In order to salvage my rug, I deliberately sacrificed my scrubs by using my limbs to stem the black waterfall that was pouring off the table. As a result, my scrubs are now sporting a new dark mottled look. It's ok though, because there's plenty more where they came from. ^_^;; The stained hands and legs, however, are going to be a little more difficult to replace.

Anyway, after a brief hiatus, the Scribble is back, this time in the form of a random page from Sil's sketchbook. I promise to be more prompt about them from now on. Really. I think.

So... one day late. Due to Sil and I going back to my house for my mom's birthday (which was yesterday, happy brithday, Mom!) and for an all you can eat seafood buffet that really kicked some crab butt. Mmmm, crab legs and lobsters and clams, oh my!

I'm looking at a buttload of work coming up and upon me this week. Nothing too terrible, but stuff that I should start getting done now instead of later.

About the strip... in my most humble opinion, baggy pants are stupid looking. That's all I have to say.

In link news, watch out for the chengwin. I have a friend who went by "Chicken" on the work radios and goes by "Penguin" on ICQ. Chengwin!!!! I really love the surreal feel of the movies. Check it out (thanks to bluesnews for doing all the finding of such sites for me).

And I'll leave you with a song that's been in my head.

I don't want to get over you by the Magnetic Fields...

I don't want to get over you
I guess I could take a sleeping pill and sleep at will and not have to go through what I go through
I guess I should take Prozac, right, and just smile all night at somebody new
Somebody not too bright but sweet and kind who would try to get you off my mind I could leave this agony behind which is just what I'd do if I wanted to
but I don't want to get over you

cause I don't want to get over love
I could listen to my therapist, pretend you don't exist
and not have to dream of what I dream of
I could listen to all my friends and go out again and pretend it's enough
or I could make a career of being blue I could dress in black and read Camus
smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth like I was 17
that would be a scream
but I don't want to get over you

song removed for space, sorry. email me if you want it.
