C & H

This may come as a shock to many of you, but the truth is… I have a strange sense of humour. Some might say it’s warped or twisted, or perhaps even sprained.

Having got that out in the open, it should come as no surprise then that I find the webcomics at Cyanide and Happiness to be quite entertaining.

Yes, it consists primarily of crudely-drawn stick-figure type illustrations. But it’s consistent, and the humour is, shall we say, off-beat. So go check it out. It’s worth a guilty giggle or two.

How I Know When I’m Busy

Posted 2009.04.17 7.58 in Pointless Blather, Work by Stephanie

Of course, generally speaking, I know when things get really busy because my backlog of work gets bigger and bigger and I seem to have less and less time. But exactly how busy things get… that is the question.

I have a half dozen web comics that I follow every day, my morning ‘ritual’ includes checking in and reading the daily strips while I have a coffee.

Every morning, I get my comics fix, then get on with my day.

What I find though is now and then, I go through the list of them and start to suspect I’ve missed something. Like, some of them seem to be in the middle of a storyline that I don’t know anything about. So I page back through them and discover that I’ve missed two, three, four days.  What?

I don’t remember not-reading them, but when I get really busy — like when I step into the office and pow! bang! ring! buzz! stuff’s going on before I even take my coat off and sit down, then I miss my morning-comic-ritual and don’t even realize it.

So here I think I’ve been reading it every day but at times I’ve missed up to a week’s worth, and don’t even know it!

That’s how I know I’m overbusied.

Devil’s Panties!

Posted 2008.10.31 0.00 in Family/Friends by Stephanie

So a few days ago, my very good friend Lezley sent me a link to a site called The Devil’s Panties.

It sounded wierd and unusual, so I knew I had to check it out. What I found there was a daily comic, sort of semi-autobiographical, about a woman named Jennie.

She seemed really likeable and I thought I was sort of relating to her and some of her situations. Plus, her style reminded me a lot of Lezley’s style.

I ended up spending about 3 hours that day, reading comic after comic. I think I covered 2 or 2.5 years worth of her work, but still only about a quarter or a third of the way through it. Nonetheless, when I saw the image that’s posted below, I knew for certain that Jennie and I have at least some things in common.

A shameless plug for my friend Lezley’s website.

She’s an artist, she draws well, and has a great sense of humour and a nice casual style. She’s working on a daily comic thing, with a new take on life.

Go and check out her work.
