I don't know when they replaced 'alert' with 'klaxon' but here we are.

I have three full shelves full of books I plan to read. When will I be stopped?!?

From Wikipedia:

Tsundoku (Japanese: 積ん読) is acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one’s home without reading them. The term originated in the Meiji era (1868–1912) as Japanese slang. It combines elements of tsunde-oku (積んでおく, to pile things up ready for later and leave) and dokusho (読書, reading books).

AKA me at every comic show.

That light is pretty much the worst.

This actually happened to me. Me and this dude were ready to rip each others’ heads off, until we had a mutual hatred to unite us. Maybe I should’ve tried something more unique but I was too annoyed to think of it.

Hope you are enjoying the new comics! I know I’m enjoying making ’em.

It's not bracing, it's just cold and wet.

To the jerkwad with the umbrella: I saw you.

It's like the Internet but in real life.

Ska is great for deadlifts, since it's convincing you to 'pick it up, pick it up, pick it up'.

One thing I’ve learned about “gym rats” (aka “people in the gym all the time”) is that they can be just as nerdy as the nerds that talk about “fandom”. They’re just talking about muscle groups and lifting routines and stuff. So far, no talk of “shipping”. Which is probably for the best.

Or maybe just nap more. That seems pretty achievable.

I’d started making a comic listing my resolutions:

  • Read more
  • Eat better,
  • Exercise,
  • Travel somewhere new,
  • Draw more,
  • Have more fun,
  • Answer some big questions,
  • And generally have a better year than 2014.

But there wasn’t really a punchline there (not that having a punchline hasn’t stopped me before). But this worked a little better, and let’s face it. it’s all about doing more or less of something anyway.

Btw, if you’re considering any resolutions, a few thoughts:

  • Set SMART goals.
  • Don’t wait to know everything to start.
  • Don’t get discouraged after you drop off when things get busy. The important thing is to jump back on when you can. Setbacks are gonna happen, that doesn’t mean you should give up.
  • Tell your friends you’re doing it. They’ll keep you honest.
  • Fuckin’ do it.

How about you?

Maybe it's time to admit I'm turning into all

Have you ever found words flying out of your mouth that you never thought you’d use? I’m not talking racist or asinine, just stupid? Well, that’s what happened to me. I missed a turn on my bike ride to my doctor’s office, and “Aw, poopturds!” flew out of my mouth. This raised a multitude of questions:

  • What’s a poopturd?
  • Where did my brain come up with that?
  • What ELSE will my brain come up with?
  • Wait wait wait. I really did miss that turn. Shitfiddles, I gotta take the next left…

Or, how my bike got stolen and how I stole it back.

Quick note: This story originally was posted as-it-happened on Tumblr, but here’s the whole thing compiled together. It was then a Medium post, but here it is on my site.

Part 1: Monday. Well, this is ridiculous.

First, take a look at my bike. Looks like a normal bike, right?

1-LZVJmY5EOpTFsU0oqO0bJg

A picture of my bike from months ago. This is known as “The Georgetown Bike Rack”.

 

On Friday night, amidst trying to walk a dog and get a sick girlfriend home, I locked my bike outside my apartment to a small fence outside the building instead of lugging it into the bike room in my building (which has been largely blocked by maintenance people’s stuff).

Some time between Saturday and Sunday, the bike was stolen. I was upset. In fact, I still am upset. There’s the money, sure. But moreover, it was stolen from outside where I live. There is theft in my neighborhood, and apparently locking up a bike isn’t enough.

My girlfriend Kristen was kind enough to help me start to get things in order, and on Monday put in a police report for the bike, and I mentally tried to move on. It was kinda working.

But here’s where it gets infinitely more interesting. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
