It was a pretty tense situation

Panels one and two describe a situation that happened today. I was walking along and saw a big red “beware of dog” sign posted on a broken fence, and immediately laughed out loud at the joke in my head. Panel three didn’t happen, but I mean, it was a possibility!

Midgar, 500 years later

I’ve played final fantasy vii for YEARS. For about 20 years, actually. Yeesh!

I love this game so much. But I’ve never legitimately beat it. The furthest I’ve ever gotten on my own is to the last boss, but I could never beat it. Back in the PlayStation one days, that’s where the game shark would come in! I’ve bought it on PlayStation one (twice), PC (pre-steam), on the psp, ps3, ps4, iOS and Android, As well as the PlayStation classic. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I saw that they had a square soft sale on, and after the points I had saved up, I could get it on switch for like $5. The switch is the perfect video game console, and I wanted to try it out- I was itching for some neoclassic jRPG. It’s the best version by far! For some reason, It looks better then the iOS one, and the controllers (instead of using the screen) are Necessary for it to feel intuitive. Plus, they have a 3x speed feature, which is how I managed to beat it in under two weeks!

I guess that’s sort of cheating.

LEGO: it inspires even me

I love LEGO. I love making space ships and robots and cool tanks and all sorts of stuff. I make something cool and keep it on my shelf for a few weeks, and then I tear it down and make something cool again. And now that both my daughters are old enough to enjoy making stuff with LEGO, it’s a pretty easy way to hang out with them.

that being said, I don’t always see what they see. But I suppose that’s the point of LEGO, isn’t it? To teach kids how to envision something and bring it into reality, or to allow a real physical structure assume some imagined form? Both and! LEGO is great. I still don’t know what that was supposed to be though.

Self expression is key

The first thing I feel is “man, this sucks.” And then it’s “I’m thankful that, so far, me and my family aren’t sick with this.” And then it’s “but there are so many who are!” And then it’s “buckle down and do your part so that even more people don’t get sick.” And then it’s “will red robins even be open when this is all over?” Oh man.

I love making comics, it’s a part of my daily routine. I like being able to read them years later- it’s like keeping a diary, but it’s in code, because only I know the fifteen versions of each comic I didn’t make that express different aspects of what I was feeling when I made it. Anyways, it is cathartic, solace inducing.

Neapolitan?

But for real, it’s the worst. None of the flavours individually actually taste like any of them would taste on their own. Plus, strawberry and vanilla make sense together. Vanilla and chocolate? Totally. That’s a frosty. But something unnatural happens when you put all three flavours together. It’s like, they make each other worse. It’s actually quite a feat, to wreck ice cream. Luckily the kids have horrible taste so it won’t go to waste.

Slow down, change!

Nobody was ready for this.

If I’ve learned anything in the last month, it’s that change can happen very fast and sometimes it leaves you flat on your face.
