  2. Ah, writers who make up for past mistakes.

Ah, character development.

Ah, fourth wall breakage.

Ah, this comic.

(hey, for the next month I’m going to be focused on moving to a new state!  Message me if you want, but I don’t really intend to post a whole lot for a while)

  3. The cat found the mouse’s cage.

  4. Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).

    The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.

    Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.

  5. OotS updated!

I’m glad this panel exists, because Durkon’s mother is in it, and I’m super excited about all things Mama Thundershield.  It’s also another glimpse of the sort of people we’re going to encounter in this story.  Durkon is a summation of all of the Generic Dwarf Traits omnipresent in media that features dwarves.  These dwarves all defy those tropes in one way or another — there’s a black lady with a hair clip, and none of the ladies have beards, and they all have different colored skin, and the most badass one in the room is also a lady (Mama Thundershield).  Also, Obi-Wan Kenobi exists in this universe as a Dwarven Bard?

Just like the first time we flashbacked to Durkon’s childhood, I find myself wondering what the occasion is.  Why are we seeing this flashback?  The only lead-in we got for this memory is Elan’s “I thought some nice dinner music might class it up a bit.  This is an old dwarven song about-” (cue flashback about a dwarf about to sing an old dwarven song)  I’m used to assuming that the Hel-spirit that inhabits him forces him to pull up memories on command, but Darth Durkon doesn’t say a thing about this flashback.

I can only conclude from this that Durkon drew up this flashback on his own, perhaps as a comfort to distract himself while his body is being forced to drain the blood of a friend.  Durkon therefore has some willpower over what he’s remembering and when — I can only hope that that will prove useful when the moment is right.  Go Durkon.  Believe in yourself.

  6. I wrote a Calvin and Hobbes script for my LD kids. They really, really wanted to do Calvin and Hobbes as their final project. Does Hobbes feel…useless…to you?

    Calvin and Hobbes walk together. Calvin is carrying a bag.

    Mom: Calvin, are you going to take that tiger to school again?
    Calvin: Sure.
    Mom: Don’t the kids make fun of you?
    Calvin: Tommy Chesnutt did once, and now nobody does.
    Mom: Why, what happened to Tommy Chesnutt?
    Calvin: Hobbes ate him!
    Hobbes: Ugh! He needed a bath too…

    Calvin and Hobbes walk to school. They find Susie.

    Susie: What’s in the big bag?
    Calvin: Nothing you need to know about.
    Susie: Come on, tell me!
    Calvin: Well, let’s just say it’s something that might come in handy today.
    Susie: Why? What happens today?
    Calvin: We’ve got a history test, remember?
    Susie: So what did you bring? A bomb?
    Calvin: Wouldn’t you and the principal both like to know!
    Susie: Why won’t you tell me what’s in that bag?
    Calvin: It’s a severed head.
    Susie: It is NOT. Don’t be disgusting!
    Calvin: Fine. Don’t believe me.
    Susie: You said it would come in handy during today’s test.
    Calvin: The head is an oracle. I’ll put it on my desk and it will tell me answers.
    Susie: Forget I asked. I don’t even care!
    Hobbes: SOOOOSIE IS A BOOGER BRAAAAAIN!
    Calvin: It speaks the truth!

    Calvin and Susie sit down in chairs with the rest of the class. Hobbes sits by Calvin’s feet. Mrs. Wormwood passes out the tests.

    Mrs. Wormwood: Before we take our tests, let’s do a review. Calvin, can you tell us what Lewis and Clark did?
    Calvin: No, but I can recite the secret superhero origin of each member of each member of the Avengers.
    Mrs. Wormwood: Did you even read the history chapter I assigned?
    Calvin: I tried to, Mrs. Wormwood, but when I picked up the book all the letters slid off and fell on the floor.
    Mrs. Wormwood: See me after class, Calvin.
    Calvin: I’m not dumb. Everything that I know is just useless.

    Mrs. Wormwood passes out the tests.

    Mrs. Wormwood: Here are your tests. You may begin.
    Calvin: What year did Columbus find America?
    Hobbes: Year 1.
    Calvin: Really?
    Hobbes: Yeah, that’s why it’s called Year 1.
    Calvin: Susie, what did you get for Question 1?
    Susie: Three hundred billion gazillion.
    Calvin: Gee, that was really helpful, Susie.
    Susie: It’s a three followed by 85 zeroes.
    Calvin: Oh, thanks, Susie! What did you get for Question 2?
    Susie: Three hundred billion gazillion.
    Calvin: That’s what she said Question 1 was! Hey, how come you wrote something different?
    Susie: I’m going to get this question wrong, so it doesn’t look like we’re cheating.
    Calvin: Oh, thanks! Hey, wait a minute…
    Mrs. Wormwood: Calvin! Are you cheating?
    Calvin: No, Mrs. Wormwood! Can I go get something from my locker?
    Mrs. Wormwood: What do you need?
    Calvin: I can’t tell you.
    Mrs. Wormwood: Then sit and do your test.
    Calvin: You’re spoiling a great surprise for the class!
    Mrs. Wormwood: It would be a great surprise for me if you’d just get to work.
    Calvin: COUGH COUGH COUGH Can I get a drink of water?
    Mrs. Wormwood: Okay, but hurry up.

    Calvin goes to his locker.

    Calvin: This is a job for…
    Narrator: To avoid detection while changing identities, mild-mannered Calvin leaps into his locker! There, he makes the stupendous transformation into…STUPENDOUS MANNN!
    Calvin: Da ta da TUM TUM da ta da TUM TUM. Gosh it’s dark in here. Where’s that darn handle?

    Calvin bangs against the locker.

    Calvin: I can’t get out!
    Narrator: Hmm…this is a real job for Stupendous Man!

    Calvin bangs against the locker.

    Narrator: Heck, this may even be a job for the custodian.
    Mrs. Wormwood: Where’s Calvin? Didn’t he come back from the drinking fountain?
    Susie: I’ll be he’s at his locker, Miss Wormwood. He brought something secret in a paper bag today that he said would help him on the test.

    Mrs. Wormwood walks towards the locker.

    Narrator: Stupendous Man’s stupendous powers are of no avail in this cunning trap! Zounds! It’s Stupendous Man’s fiendish nemesis, the crab teacher, coming to finish him off!
    Mrs. Wormwood: Calvin? Let’s see if Calvin got whatever was in his locker.
    Narrator: With stupendous muscles of magnitude, Stupendous Man breaks free!!
    Mrs. Wormwood: What on Earth?!

    Calvin runs off.

    Narrator: Stupendous Man escapes! A crimson bolt bursts through the air!
    Mrs. Wormwood: Calvin, come back here!
    Calvin: Ta-daaaa! Have no fear, boys and girls! I’m Stupendous Man, champion of liberty and justice! Try to restrain yourselves, girls! I’m just here to do Calvin’s test.
    Candace: He lives on your street, doesn’t he, Susie?
    Susie: I hardly even know him, Candace.
    Narrator: Stupendous Man’s stupendous knowledge lets him complete the test with stupendous speed!
    Calvin: 1492! The battle of Lexington! Trotsky! The cotton gin! Another triumph for virtue and right!
    Narrator: And now, with a whoosh, Stupendous Man is off into the sky!
    Calvin: So long, kids! Always brush your teeth! KAPWINGGG!
    Mrs. Wormwood: Class, did Calvin come in here?! Has anyone seen him?
    Calvin: Here I am, Mrs. Wormwood! Boy, was I thirsty!

    Mrs. Wormwood pulls Calvin away.

    Calvin and Hobbes sit together.

    Calvin: So the teacher told Mom, and Mom hit the roof and took my costume away.
    Hobbes: Yikes. Um, has Stupendous Man ever won a battle?
    Calvin: They’re all moral victories.
    Hobbes: One can’t be picky.
    Calvin: Oh, and I flunked the test too.

  7. I suppose that answers…nothing.

    18) I was gchatting with Apollo about 2.25 hours ago, discussing our apartment plans, and he said “you deserve to live in OUR place, not my place with some of your stuff”.  It was very sweet, so I smiled.

    28) I like to think that I’m forgiving.

    29) I don’t really know how many true friends I have.  I’m scared to find out.

  9. megcubed:

    The average age in Boston in the early 1770s was 14. More than half the population of Boston was under 21 in the events leading up to the American Revolution.

    It really puts everything into a completely different context, doesn’t it?

    Wow that’s.
