History of my cellphones

 Here's a boring comic about what a spaz I am about phones. Since I drew this comic, I dropped my phone in my mom's drive way and the only thing that saved the phone from being utterly useless was the screen protector. It is now chunked and I should probably replace it. We'll see. There are also gouges taken out of the plastic. Sheesh.
Here are some additional drawings about how the "move" has been making me feel. Things are a bit more settled now, but not totally.

Hearing Loss

So we are going on week three of moving next weekend. I am not kidding. So here's hoping some day, we are done moving.  I have next to no energy left. So that's all for now and we are staying on the Tuesday Thursday update until I have more energy.

Morning Routine

I am so not a morning person. Never have been. Can't imagine I ever will be. Since I drew this, I stopped eating oatmeal in the morning, though I might switch between that and my current breakfast: 2 soft-boiled eggs, an english muffin, a cup of milk, and a slice of cantaloupe (or some fruit). I just don't like the texture of oatmeal so I have to add all the other stuff in to hide it. With the other stuff, it's not bad, but it is so much work! But if there is a husk in a bite, that is my last bite. It just makes me gag. Even trying to brush my teeth makes me gag after that stupid husk.
So next week or the week after, when the moving has all settled down, I will likely up this to three times a week and update Monday, Wednesday, Friday. I have a lot of these comics. This move is getting stressful.

I drew this as a birthday present for a friend. Bertha is the friend (that's her false name, of course). She will make other appearances I am sure. This is also available as a print on the Flying Dodo Publications Etsy store.
We are moving this weekend, so I am missing out on another Drink and Draw. And next week we have to drive up from Renton. Eesh. Not sure how long that'll last. I am really excited to move though. The new apartment is almost twice as big and has a nice big balcony. But no yard. Ernie will be sad. However, I will get to ride my bike to work. It is only an 8 minute bike ride or so! And when we move offices in March, it will still only be a 7 minute bike ride or so. Anyways, someday, I will be posting a series of comics about this apartment that I am drawing as we prepare to move. But they are numbered in the late 30s and the last post of that type was number 10. So it might be a while.

Fan Girl

I feel like such a dork because this makes me so happy, but it really does. They both star in some of my favorite shows. And this drawing does not do them justice.

This is a tale from the art trip in Bellingham. After Mr. Smarmy. That's my mom and her new husband Jim. They were not yet married at the time.
So we really did all eat the same dinner, but with very different results. I liked it the most. I couldn't believe how delicious it was. I think my mom was disappointed because she knows what real stroganoff is supposed to be like and was expecting that. I had only vague expectations. Egg noodles, beef, sour-creamy sauce hopefully with chunks of mushroom and onion. We were at Skylark's. I want to take Abe there, but we still haven't gone. It is a pretty nice place. I like the atmosphere. Lots of mirrors on the wall and a weird living room up where no one can get to it.

This isn't as funny as the other ones have been, but it was really cathartic. This guy really pissed me off. And I just realized why he looks weird in the 5th panel....
This whole situation just made me so nauseous. I can't believe people act like that. I could tell he thought he could charm me into submission. But the art vacation in Bellingham was fun. Always is. It is weird doing art away from my setup at home, though.

The Mole

Whoops. Forget to set up the automatic post last night, so it is a little late today. It was a rough night last night. Tuesday we went to Bellingham so I could finish binding some books with my mom and then have dinner with my Aunt Bonnie who is visiting from New York. Then yesterday, my normal 45 minute drive home took an hour and a half because there was a chemical spill on the freeway.

Anyways, when I worked this job, which I won't name because it seems like the kind of thing you shouldn't, I listed to that Batman Forever soundtrack a lot. I loved that movie. This was my first job in college. And he was the new boss. The previous boss had been cool, but I think the store got bought or something? I don't remember. This was about ...11 years ago! Sheesh. Who knew. I can't tell you how much a stared at that mole. If looks could kill, that mole would be dead. Forunately, I haven't needed that song since I quit that job to work at Metro Cinemas where I met Abe.

As of now, I am posting uncorrected images of these comics. Mistakes and all. But after looking at the last two, perhaps I should. Just the minor things like the black smear at the top of the last comic and the buttons going out of panel 4. Thoughts.

Guess I am chattier when I write this part during lunch instead of after dinner. I have noticed I tend to write more for the Thursday comics than the Tuesday comics.
