I DO NOT like Ike
[color=darkblue]So yeah, was hoping I could start updating regularly again, but alas, Ike is a bastard. For those previously unaware, I live in the Houston area, in one of the little suburbs about 20 minutes south east actually, and as I'm sure most of you are aware, the latest hurricane-Ike-just plowed through us. I was holed up in a tiny hotel room during the actual storm and when my family and I returned on Monday, we were relieved to find very little damage done to our home (a couple shingles gone on the back porch and our fence is decimated but that's it). However, we were part of the unfortunate MILLIONS that do not have power. I am STILL without power and probably won't be getting it back till next monday (which SUCKS in a place where the temp varies from 90-100 with 80-100% humidity). I am lucky enough to steal away on my school's computer. So I am VERY sad to say that TGND as well as Dragon Fyre will be on an indefinite hiatus till my situation betters. I love you all! Thanks for being so patient![/color]
Interesting Times and Computer Problems
[color=cyan]So yeah, as you have probably already known, I'm experiencing SEVERE computer problems at the mo'. Trying my damndest to get them fixed since I'll be taking two online courses next quarter, so haven no fear, it will be fixed soon. Unfortunately, this has put a bit of a damper on my TGND schedule. Since I never know when my computer is going to work, I haven't actually drawn up any new strips yet. The scripts are all done, I just haven't drawn and inked them yet. But with the help of my wonderful school, I should be abel to get a few done here and there.
Also, I am working on a super secret project that you guys will know about in approximately....1.5 months X3. This is also pushing TGND's progress back just a tad. But I don't think anyone will be disappointed. You guys will get to see it just as soon as possible. Until then, please be patient and keep yer eyes peeled for surprise updates!
BTW, 100th strip is just around the bend! I'd love to give you guys something special, but I need YOU to tell me about it! PM me your requests and I'll get as m any of them as I can done for the [/color]big day![/color]
She Works Hard For Her Money!
So yeah, just in case you hadn't heard, I FINALLY GOT A JOB!! WOO HOO!! XD I am now currently apart of Museum Services at the Houston Museum of Natural Science! So yeah, if you're in the area and would like to pay me a little visit (and maybe get me some commission by buying a membership from me X3) feel free to drop by and look for me!
Ah Houston winters: when it FINALLY manages to drop below 70, when it's cold enough you have to bundle up in your favorite beanie, scarf and gloves. When this charming patch of cold weather finally graces us with it's presence, it has to RAIN for a freakin' MONTH!! Cold and wet: my least favorite sensation. So yeah, this weather is fantastic for contracting colds, flu and sinus congestions. Lots of complaining to follow. Cheers.
Merry F***ing Christmas!
Please pardon the crassness of the title, but bear with me, I have a point. So I was on my way to work this morning when I hear on the radio more blather about the whole Christmas PC thing. I've known for a while that it's supposedly more PC to wish people Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas cause SOME people get offened cause they don't actually celebrate Christmas, but this is getting riCOCKulous...Seriously...How uptight, non feeling and assanine are you that you get offened when someone smiles at you and says "Merry Christmas!" I don't know that you're Jewish or Muslim or Atheist or whatever, I'm just being nice and wishing you a nice holiday, whether you celebrate Christmas or not! If you get offened by something like Merry Christmas as far as I'm concenrned, you deserve to be offened, you jackass. I wish I could meet the idiot who actually complained to some store manager "Um, your employee just wished me a Merry Christmas. I take offense to that, I don't celebrate Christmas because ______." I'd go right up to them with a big smile and say exactly what my title says. So Christmas it up people! I know I am! And if for some reason, you DO get offended by a jolly Merry Christmas, GET OVER IT!!! If you said Happy Hanukah to me or Happy Kwanza or whatever have you, I'd smile and say, "Thank you! Happy/Merry (fill in the blank) to you too!" That's what this season is all about right? So, MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS!!!XD
Never a Bride's Maid...
So yeah...one of my best friends...actually I'm not sure what to call her anymore. She has dealt such a blow to our friendship that I'm not even sure there's a way to recover it anymore. One of my friends recently got proposed to and of course, asked me to be a bridesmaid. We have been best friends since highschool. While in the past year or so, we haven't seen too much of each other because of work and school, I have always considered her to be my dearest of friends. So of course, I was happy and honored to do so, seeing as we (and two of my other best friends) had made a promise to be bridesmaids for one another. But unfortunately, I was concerned with the choice she was making. I felt she was going too fast. That the man she was engaged to didn't treat her quite as she deserved to be treated. But he seemed to make her happy, so I didn't say anything. I suppose I didn't hide this dislike well however, because not too long ago, she told me she no longer wanted me (and one other fellow friend) as a bridesmaid. She said that she couldn't have me up there with her if I didn't fully support her fiance. Not "us"...HIM. See...I don't support him...because I don't really like him. He's rude, crude, irritating and boorish to me. But he makes her happy, so I was happy to support HER decision...but I guess it wasn't enough. I'm hurt and cut to the deepest part of my heart. Someone I have loved and cherished for almost half my life doesn't feel that I'm necessary to be apart of a big part of her life. I'm trying to be understanding...but I can't. And now I feel that the damage is irreparable. I fear that no matter what, things can never be the same...the Fearsome Foursome...is no more.
I'm sorry Steve...I really am...
