it's the little things

I went to the New York Comic con yesterday and I will probably write about that when I have more time (I'm at work in Manhattan at the moment).

This is just a brief admonishment to those of you out there who aren't reading Questionable Content. It's quite possibly the best web comic (save Cat and Girl - though that's a different sort of web comic) out there. The newest storyline, well specifically Friday's and Today's strips just made me very happy. It's a tiny thing, but the good warm fuzzies are hard to come by so I cherish them when they do.

To really get the full impact of the story you should go back through the archive and read from the beginning. Sure it's about three hundred something odd strips but it's totally worth it (EDIT, Tuesday 12:22pm - so I checked and it's actually 544 strips, which doesn't negate anything I've already written and I'm totally standing by this post). It's an hour of your day (depending on how fast you read and how fast your internet connection is) and I know most of you spend your days in front of your computer. Why not spend it reading something fun instead of all that porn I know you're all hooked on.

(no I'm not saying porn isn't fun, just that sometimes mental stimulation is just as fun as physical. Yes I've been single for about two years now, why do you ask?)

I'm at work in a suburb of Akron at the moment. Kinda loses something when I say it. I'll definitely check out the comics if I can tear myself aware from that guy-on-guy porn I'm so addicted to since seeing "Brokeback". BTW, I find it hard to believe that your cup of tea in your avatar is still steaming.

Brad got locked up.

Funny story, but there's no time for that.


Run over to Blogjail and leave him some heartfelt comments. The way I see it, if we all express what an asset Brad is to the Blogosphere, then the jailers might feel sorry and let him out!

Don't you think, Nonny, that maybe it's not still the same cup of tea? I mean, do you watch him ALL the time? No. Maybe he runs into the kitchen and pours another cup. Maybe he has an electric resistance heater in there and that's actually a reactor for a power generator he's built to keep his whole house warm.

I work in the suburbs of...wait, what's a suburb?

J Honostly, stop cyberstalking me. You live to disagree with me.

Really cute stuff, Amichai. I will definately have to go back and read the whole thing, now! Thanks for the link :)

I like the "Jesus Fucking Christ" part the best.

Amichai - I dropped a couple songs over at my blog for you!

I'm addicted to QC, too. I actually yelled when Dora kissed Marten.

I WISH I could spend my day looking at something other than outgoing invoices, bills, and other shit. What's porn? Is this a new "fad" on the internet? How does one go about downloading "porn?" Is it fun? Interactive? Inquiring minds want to know.

Please tell me it's not better than cybergolf, flight sim, or any other sport you can play. I'm a cyberwidow as it is. I might as well live alone.

ha ha

I'm gonna go watch some more scary movies now.

There's nothing like cheering for the guy who most resembles oneself...

I FINALLY read the Questionable Content comic and now I'm HOOKED. I'm probably gonna link it, too. Thanks, Amichai!

Did you get sucked into comic-land? Fall in a vat of Starbuck's beans that were awaiting the grinder? Get covered in froth? Come out, come out, wherever you are, my dear. :)

Hi I'm Amichai, I live in NYC and am having so much fun that I only blog sporadically, very sporadically.
