Hello! Last TOGM before we go to TCAF, so I'm just going to say we're very excited to meet Jeph Jacques and will probably post whatever goodies in a special section.

With that out of the way... Forum creating is annoying. I'm still working on it, but I think that I'm going to have to figure out the process, delete everything and then start over and do it properly from the outset.

Speaking of which, I almost had a Zazzle store shirt to post today, but I think I'm going to bug some of my Mondo friends who have already gone down that path... I thought that I post the image, you stick it on a shirt or g-string or whatever floats your boat, and then everything's cool... Turns out that we've got to make each thing individually? Awkward. We've decided to put up the "Will Thrill for Brains", and "Bunneh!" images. My question, I suppose, is whether people would prefer the Thrill shirt with the background or not. Also, the Bunneh shirt needs to be redrawn in mammoth proportions, so it might be a bit before that's resolved. I have to say though, I'm kind of disappointed. I was hoping that the template that I create (placement or whatnot) would be the format, and then people would be able to pick whatever shirt (Or thong) they wanted with that format... Clearly, I am mistaken.

I think that after I finish with the forum and zazzle projects, I'm going to look into improving a different section of the site... Front page, unfortunately, is still on the backburner. I was thinking maybe the links page... Any other page that people feel is more important?

Time to get ready for work! Have a great weekend!!!

I don't have a lot to say, I've been really ,really exhausted the past few days! I will say one thing though:


Any way, let's see what I can squeeze out of my muddled head.

I saw the Dr this week, and she is going to be sending me to a sleep study to figure out why I'm so durned exhausted all of the time. I really hope that they find an answer because I really feel that I have been sleep deprived for years. So many people call me lazy, but really I have zero energy at all, sometimes even just raising my arms burns like I'm lifting weights!

Yes, I am also chronically anemic, so that contributes too. However, I get tested for this on a regular basis, and I am often treated with supplements. Couple this with the exhaustion and the stomach issues (may or may not have mentioned my mysterious stomach pain that feels like I've been punched in the gut) and I sometimes think that I might have Celiac's disease.

Sorry for sounding like a hypochondriac and boring you with a bunch of my medical maladies, but it's what had come to mind!

Any way, see you Thursday!

@Magravan: You get to meet Jeph?! No fair! D:

...As for pages to work on:
I think you have all the important extra ones. Links, Guest Comics, etc.

@Skrael: Hope you get better! Last summer I found out I was severely anemic. Spent a week in the hospital.
Worst. Summer. Ever.
Thankfully, according to the doctor, I'm back to healthy red blood-cell levels. :)

@MarshmallowGherkin - Well, presuming we can abide the line up that's inevitably going to be there for him ;)

Thanks for making this comic!

@Viper - Me too! She's got a 'I'm just going along with this to save an argument' vibe :D
Xenrin edit delete reply
Hehe... yeah.
Maybe you could distract the comic junkies by "mentioning" a sweet deal at the opposite side of the con (therefore moving you ahead in line). ;)

And: You're welcome! Thanks for the idea!

I don't know what kind of group it will be.. I'm not sure if I should go with Carrie Fisher giving a panel about a Chewie / Leia fanfic that she's developing, or a big catfight in the parking lot... I need to scope out the place to figure out which subgroup of nerdery we have going on... Because it's hard to get rid of the webcomic geeks when you're already waiting in line for Jeph ... :D

Woah, Jeph Jacques! That's awesome, Redwall is one of my favorite novels. Have fun you guys!

[Edit: Der... I was thinking of Brian Jacques.]
Magravan edit delete reply
lol... Let's not get crazy now, Guy ;) Jeph makes Questionable Content, which is probably the reason we even have a webcomic ;) So really, we're meeting one of our greatest inspirations when it comes to webcomicing :)

Meeting Jeph Jacques does sound fun indeed.

And good luck with your health, Skrael

It's twelve at your place?! It's ten were I live. Great job!

@Cyborg_572 - Sorry you can't make it, I was hoping to have some CF members to meet as well.

@Misa - It was midnight EST when it posted ;) Also, are you Misaru, or someone else?
Misa (Guest) edit delete reply
No, I'm not Misaru. I'm just Misa

Cool! We're happy to have more people comment on the page :D

You're going to TCAF! Give Jeph all of my love.

Make sure to save some for yourselves too, though, since the TOGM is taking an interesting turn this week.

Getting annoyed of trying to annoy someone- priceless :D Beth should pretty much be sure of John's insanity by now :P
bbedlam edit delete reply
You did a great job with Beth's expression all the way through this strip. Poor John, being patronized so thoroughly :)
Magravan edit delete reply
@Solem Saje - Okay, but when I give him all your love and get thrown out of TCAF, I'm sending you a very angry PM :P

@Barrahir - Haha... So far there has been nothing to indicate that he's telling the truth... Maybe Monday's comic will fix that!

@bbedlam - Her crushing barrage is no match for his lack of attention!

Ah, Panel 2 annoyance is one of the best annoyances I have ever seen. Nice job, nice job.
ArtistXXY edit delete reply
generally, i'd skimm and read the word first... but the best part of this strip is Beth's exasperated eyes/ expression.
Magravan edit delete reply
Glad to hear you guys are enjoying the art ;D
Sinbad (Guest) edit delete reply
not bad, not bad at all.
Magravan edit delete reply
I'm glad that you think so :D But really, it's a little bad at times ;)
Mitchell edit delete reply
Beths expressions made me laugh, there could be no speech or text and i know exactly what was going on just from her face :P Good job! :D
Magravan edit delete reply
Hey! No giving her any ideas to get rid of me! :D
