    Sweveham, I've enjoyed having you and your contributions here. You will be missed but I hope you will find pastures greener elsewhere. And if you feel like peeking in from time to time, you will always be welcome.

    I woke up at about two-thirty this morning to a kitten on my chest. I dunno if he got in through the door or someone let him in and put him there, but it was cute. He sat there for a bit, laid down and slept for a bit, played around chasing my fingers under the sheets, and just generally being adorable.

    What makes an artist express himself by telling the story of gender bending high school kids? All art is madness. Celebrate Insanity.

    Highlight of tonight's Family Feud: Grant: Name something you might find in ancient Greece. Contestant: Ruins It was the top answer with 27, which struck me as really stupid because the buildings wouldn't be ruined yet in ancient Greece.

    Something within your specialty that is done badly in a movie or comic is always more annoying than other slips. I have the same experience myself. When someone uses language in a pretentious way in a story I read and does it badly, it sends me straight up a wall. (*grumble grumble* Bloody C.J. Cherryh's Morgaine who couldn't conjugate 'thou' and 'thee' properly and just used 'thee' all the time. Maybe Cherryh thought Morgaine sounded cool, but to me she sounded like frigging Jar-Jar Binks.)

    That may be true, but it seems some toads do secrete the drug kind. Where do you think the stories about girls kissing toads who transformed into princes came from?

    Two causes come to mind offhand: First, if you haven't been getting much time in the sunshine the past couple of months, then you might have Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is treatable by getting more time in the sun. Second, if this has been ongoing for months or more, you might have signs of Chronic Depression, in which case you may have a biochemical imbalance that you should ask your doctor about.

    If you are a member of the main 8 or primary secondary cast and you go to the mall, something will happen. Attempted mugging, revealing Grace's powers, the start of meddling teenagers, griffins, etc.

    I passed the last stone of my current set. I've been straining my pee for the last couple of days. The last stone was about 1.5 to 2mm is size. I had forgotten how painful that passing one over 1mm is size can be at the moment of passing. The relief of pain after that makes it all worth while.

    Clearly, tOH, Susan and Elliot need you! Quick, jump through your computer screen and moderate their forum comments for them! Wait, no, that would mean you wouldn't be modding our comments any more! Never mind, forget I said anything....

    Occasionally you will see a Colonel Appliance behaving eccentrically. But anything truly bizarre from appliances is usually not tolerated until they reach flag officer status. Watch out for any appliances from Admiral or General Electric.

    I may have written all that music for ROTT, Duke Nukem 3D, Stargunner, and Shadow Warrior, but I'll let up a secret right here: I couldn't play for [censored]. I had to have the God Mode code to see everything in the game. Otherwise, I would never have been able to get a feel for the levels in order to come up with music for them.

    1) Get the hell of my lawn 2) I'm amused by the fact that Elliot is stunned that people don't know his full name. Dude, at least where I come from not knowing the full name of your fellow students is normal.

    Firefighters are bad ass. They are the closest thing to real life superheroes I know about. I simply cannot sufficiently express the admiration I feel for people with that amount of commitment and raw courage.

    I love Elliot for just caring so much about other people that he will analyse even his own hypothetical planned actions and reject them if he realises that they could have unintended consequences. This feels a little like the inverse of taking something about others and making it about yourself; he has taken a purely hypothetical (if at least conceivable) scenario he might personally experience and included its effects on others as well. It is why I love EGS so much. The characters. They all bring something important to the table and often do it in very individual ways. And I really, truly appreciate that.

    No complaints from me. I love worldbuilding to a fault. In fact, I'm having to write some of it out of a novel I'm trying to create. I've viewed comic strips as something apart from your standard literature. They tell a story, yes, but they tell a continuous story. I'm not in it for the ending of the strip: maybe for the ending of a plotline, but not for the strip itself. No, I'm in it to see how the characters live their lives, given the circumstances that affect them. When a strip ends, like "Candi" did recently, the characters effectively die, and to me that's a sad thing.

    http://www.egscomics.com/?id=2317 This is not a very good Liefeld comic. The characters all have largely human proportions. That woman exercising clearly has a spine and her breasts aren't either massively huge or showing outrageous amounts of cleavage. Also, every single character actually has joints that can articulate and actual wrists. And there isn't as much as even a single pouch in sight anywhere. What gives?

    Careful what you say there, you might spark a wild theory about Ashley's relation to Susan. Jerry: Ok, I confirmed it. Susan: So I really have sister? Jerry: (cough) ... Sisters. Susan: Two sisters? Jerry: Two ... hundred ... sisters. I'm sorry but your dad really went around.

    I still love the line, "I'm too young and too male to be the mother of a seventeen-year-old female me!" It encapsulates the absurdity of the whole series in a single sentence.

    If Ashley sees Elliot together with girl-Tedd, her first question may be to ask just how common it is for boys to get magic to turn into girls.

    And suddenly certain things click, like one reason I like Elliot so much. In him, I see a small reflection of my son. A story, by way of explanation: My son is 19. Lives with me now, but when he was living with his mom, there was a girl he dated towards the end of middle school. That ended when her folks moved her to another school precisely because they (being pretentious religious jackasses) didn't approve of him. High school comes along and he finds himself back in the same school as her. By this time, she's started to try to sort out identity issues and has a fairly serious girlfriend. To my son, this is no big deal; the only part that weirds him out at all is that he is the one his ex comes to for relationship advice, and being a friend he listens. I got the impression he may have been one of a very few who did that. Advance a couple of years. My son's ex is still with the same girlfriend (partly due to having my son as a good listener), but has realized that he (here's where I'm changing pronouns) is trans. Again, my son doesn't bat an eyelash; he just goes on supporting his friend. So the last panel on today's comic -- that hits home in an unexpected way. A good way.

    Copy errors. A new monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to help the other monks in copying the old texts by hand. He notices, however, that they are copying copies, and not the original books. So, the new monk goes to the Abbot to ask him about this. He points out that if there was an error in the first copy, that error would be continued in all of the other copies. The Abbot says, "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son." So, he goes down into the cellar with one of the copies to check it against the original. Hours later, nobody has seen him. So, one of the monks goes downstairs to look for him. He hears sobbing coming from the back of the cellar and finds the old monk leaning over one of the original books crying. He asks what's wrong. "The word is celebrate," the Abbot said with tears in his eyes. "CELEBRATE!"

    One of the spells Pandora rejected giving Ashley was reducing pain. Based on the commentary, it was more of a Throw It In last minute thought on Dan's part, but it still seems like the sort of thing a good writer could pick up on later. I can foresee some future plot where Tedd is hurt, or greatly upset by one of his friends being hurt, and Pandora either regrets not giving Ashley the ability to help them, or discovering that her desire to help them makes her able to get a more powerful spell than she would have gotten back in October. Pandora might be out in the open about things by then, and just plain offer Ashley the mark at that point, or she might mark her unknowing with the assumption/hope that the circumstances would lead Ashley to use her new powers sooner rather than later.

    That got me thinking. When we do (officially) encounter alien life forms that are in any way animal-like, we will probably go in with Veterinarians before Linguists.

    Actually, I can't help wondering how long the Will of magic has been planning a reset. Anybody else think that it's not a coincidence that Tedd has the abilities he has? It's possible that someone like Tedd is born before there is a reset, in order to help figure out the new rules for magic.
