The last panel still makes me laugh, that’s always a good sign.
I am not really a jewellery person! Whenever someone shows me jewellery I can see that it is very pretty, and that it would look nice, but I can barely remember to wear shoes some days so I just know I would lose whatever it is behind the couch within minutes. But still, Rose is a big fan and so are many others, those shops are always packed like an Apple store on Steve Jobs’ deathiversary.
We’ve seen Geoff need to borrow a phone cable before, but now the jig is well and truly up.
I really wish phones came with, like, five charging cables, for everywhere you need them.
One cable for your work desk
One cable for your bedside table so you can watch cat videos in bed all day
One for your car
One for your bag
One to lose somewhere and never see again
I am not generally a fan of birthday parties! I have never had much luck with them, and there is too much pressure to make them incredible I would rather just avoid the whole deal altogether. Oh and don’t even start me on birthday celebrations at work. They are so forced and phony! My perfect birthday would be spent doing what I love doing the most: being left alone in a dark room. Bliss!
I do like birthday presents though, I mean, I’m not crazy. Maybe Rose comic books would be a good birthday present!
Ever since I started selling Rose comics at conventions people would suggest I do a story where Rose gains weight from all her incessant eating, and so here it is! Kinda. I promise not to do that many fake outs in the future but I couldn’t resist with this one.
Pizza rolls are pretty awesome. They’re like a pizza, but small, and you can have lots of them and then even have a pizza afterwards now that you have developed a taste for them. Have a pizza roll today!
By the way, don’t put yourself under any pressure to have stuff worked out by a certain age. Some of the happiest people I know have never really got their life sorted and probably never will, and it doesn’t bother them a bit as long as they still have internet and a steady stream of amusing cat pictures.
My fave board game when I was a kid was Trouble. It had that cool pop up bubble thing in the middle that frankly was more fun than moving pegs around the board.
Board games are cool and hip again apparently! But it also involves having friends that can get together in the one place at the same time and that’s just a nightmare I can’t be off dealing with right now. I mean, have you tried organising friends to come around and play games? First of all it involves having friends, and sheesh. Then you have to clean up the house and find room to play. Then get food for them! And drinks! And maybe dessert. Then you gotta figure out a game that everyone will like and not have to spend the first two hours explaining the rules for. Look, just leave me to a quiet room and a pile of comic books!
Don’t let this horrible fate befall you! Get extra thick donuts before you start dunking!
I think if we prevent just one donut being ruined like this then all my years making comics were worth it.
