Hey guys. I'm sorry for making you worry. I've been temporarily unemployed, and for a while I was working my butt off trying to find gainful employment. I'm employed now -- gainfully or not, we'll see -- but I'm still trying to catch up on a bunch of stuff. I'm sorry about the comic. I'm probably go...

Not that I have the time to do it, but I'd like to find some new comics to read. Unfortunately, I have some specific things I tend to like/dislike in comics. 1) I don't much care for manga-style, or chibi-style. In fact, despite having a minor in Japanese with a focus on culture, we never really got...

Actually, mine was about a new FIRST job.

I'm unemployed in 54 hours... (I have lots of resumes out and have made lots of phone calls.)

In-shape! Haaa! The last exercise I got was when my younger dog broke her leash a week ago. I ran after her for half an hour. I vomited three times during the process and four times afterward. My legs and chest still ache. I couldn't breathe without wheezing for three days. I'm just small, that's al...

BoxJam, I just gotta ask ya -- did you put together that ad yourself? If so, major, MAJOR brownie points from yours truly for the Basho reference. Sure, George Romero and The Ramones are groovy and all that, but Basho, man... BoxJam and Basho Simplicity perfected But BoxJam's is blue. --Strange/Dave

I had trouble with forums last week, but now I'm having trouble with the comic. It's regressed to Friday.

Gah. I didn't get my shirt ordered, and now there are only XL left?

Bup, you didn't happen to set a Medium aside for your good buddy Strange/Dave, didja? Cuz that would be swell.

You also need a wheel of cheese, two loaves of flatbread, a head of lettuce, a tomato plant, and four onions.

I've read it at least three times, always forgetting that (a) I've read it, (b) you're also Dave -- and specifically the Dave for whom this message exists, and (c) I'm on the T&P boards, not my own.

I took Latin in seventh and eighth grade, Spanish in ninth, tenth, and eleventh, and Japanese (for a minor!) in college. I do a fairly decent job figuring out any Romance language, even if I haven't studied it... like, if I translated a passage of relatively simple Italian, French, or even Portugues...

Heh -- good start, there. I really DON'T speak French, so this is the best I can do, allowing for some idiomatic English not reflected in the original: A bus was carrying politicians to Congress. The bus went off the road and crashed in a field belonging to a farmer. The farmer, after seeing what ha...

My embarrassment at realizing how badly I helped derail this once popular exaggeration thread is so immense that I am burrowing a tunnel under my cubicle until I find a rock the size of Nebraska under which I can crawl and hide for two hundred thousand years.

My turn.

Vicious Lies. A semi-autobiographical comic strip. Never updated on time. Re-release coming in April.

Inexplicably popular among other cartoonists.

Crappy artwork. Intelligent humor.

And snot jokes.

Dan --

I'd really LOVE to do Space Losers fan art... but I literally have to special order a new adapter for my scanner. (Now I know why it was so cheap.)

If I get it in time, count me in! If not.... well, then, don't.
