Narwhal Date Night


Yay, date night! I did a Plant Night with my husband and we made little succulent planters that are hanging on our kitchen windows and they have dinosaurs in the succulents. I like Paint Nights, whether the branded ones or just a group of friends painting together. Being creative is fun.

Narwhal Crochet


It's hard to draw two narwhals in one frame, but I made it work. I think it works anyways. I like the hooked tusk look :) Also, narwhals are probably my favorite sea creature, which isn't saying much because I don't like many sea creatures.

Narwhal with normal tusk: What happened to your tusk?
Narwhal with hooked tusk: I started crocheting!

Sharknado 7


Figured I should post this one before they actually announce the next Sharknado, not even sure if they're still making more. I haven't seen any of them but I hear they're entertaining but low-quality production and plot-lines. So I probably will never watch any of them.

Text:
A: Did you hear that Steven King is directing the next Sharknado?
B: Yeah, "Sharknado 7: Now With Clowns."

Deer False Witness


Also wouldn't trust this deer. Also it's good to take the Bible in context but maybe these will help people think about what bearing false witness really means? I think something that isn't talked about much is how you can bear false witness against yourself, when you tell yourself lies like "this is impossible" or "I have no worth" - remember that Philippians 4:8 starts with truth when it's talking about what you should think about.

Text:
Deer: The guilty guy didn't do it!
M: The 9th Commandment is about a Bear False Witness, not a Deer False Witness!

Ninth Commandment


My pastor did a series through the Ten Commandments and I thought about the ninth commandment which says bear false witnesses are a no-go. Please note I know what bearing false witness actually is. But to think of it this way is much more entertaining. Also, I totally don't trust that bear.

Text:
Bear: The innocent guy totally did it.
M: It's a bear false witness!

Denominational Golf


My pastor has been going through the book of Luke and I highly recommend his series. He was speaking about Mary and mentioned the gulf between Protestants and Catholics with our views of Mary but I misheard him and thought he said gold and then this comic happened.

Text:
Title: Protestant-Catholic Golf
Both: My score is terrible -
Catholic: I will work off those extra strokes.
Protestant: I accept Jesus' [perfect] score as my own.

Thankful For Dinosaur Proof


Happy Thanksgiving! For what are you thankful? I'm thankful for my family (and also dinosaurs).
If you are not familiar with the villainous Royal Adviser Yzma, please go watch the masterpiece "The Emperor's New Groove" - it is infinitely quotable ("I've been turned into a cow, can I go home?" "You're excused.") and I like the art style. This is indeed an adapted quote from the movie when Emperor Kuzco introduces the viewers to his adviser.
I'm also considering adding a black border around my comics to show where they end and the page background begins. The thought is percolating. Who knows what will come of it.

Text:
I'm thankful for proof that dinosaurs once roamed the Earth.

Turkey Recovery Day


Some people apparently refer to the day after Thanksgiving as Turkey Recovery Day because you eat so much and you need a day to chill out and digest everything. Or you could go crazy shopping. Or you could fly out to visit relatives for the weekend. So many options on Black Friday or whatever you call it.
I hope you all have a relaxing Thanksgiving with friends and family and relaxation!

Text:
L: My work gets Thanksgiving and the day after as holidays.
T: Oh, Turkey Recovery Day, nice.
B: I don't think the turkey is going to recover.

Always Complain


This is my take on that positive sign "There is always always always something to be thankful for" which is a great sign but I was at work and overheard a comment about complaining and thought this up.
In actuality, there is always something to complain about or be grateful for and you have to choose which attitude to have. Remember all that God has given you and if you're being truthful, you do have much more to be grateful for than complain about.

There is

Bible Study: Third Night


The final one in this series. Sometimes being the moderator is hard. It also can be hard to figure out what really is contextual and Biblical without a lot of study in many passages. It's important to know what the Bible actually says rather than what people thing or want it to say. Find a group with Biblical backing and get into the Bible! I like the YouVersion app, which has many plans to take you through the whole Bible in a year or just the NT in a year or more topical ones. And you can sync up with friends and go through plans together and leave notes for each other! It might seem like a lot to read the whole Bible but it is important to know what you believe.

Bible Study: Second Night


Bible studies can wander a bit when rabbit trails start. Sometimes people think things are in the Bible that aren't and that's why having people you trust and good sources are important. Also staying on topic can be hard but that's when a good moderator is important. Sometimes the wanderings are good though because it can bring to light things you didn't realize are or aren't in the Bible.

Bible Study: First Night


So this is the first of a three part comic. It's about Bible Studies. It's good to study the Bible, and input from people you trust is helpful too. But it's good to search the Scriptures and know what the Bible has to say.

Serverless Restaurant


So databases can be serverless but restaurants really shouldn't be. I mean, you can do a lot with screens and such but someone still needs to prepare the food and deliver it in some way.

Text:
A: Why did Amazon's restaurant fail?
B: It was serverless.

DynoDB


So my work hosted an Amazon class and we learned about their services, including DynamoDB. I have trouble focusing when there's a word so close to dinosaur. I think this database could really take off. But it might seem a bit archaic.

Text:
A: All these newfangled databases are just confusing. Store your data the same way you always have with DynoDB!

Butterfly Garden


For our anniversary this year we went back to where we had our honeymoon. And we went back to visit the Victoria Butterfly Garden just like we did ten years ago! It was very nice. No awkward questions were asked. I like all the butterflies and they have birds there too! Butterfly gardens are very relaxing.

Text:
H: Welcome to the Butterfly Garden! Do you have any questions?
L: How long after planting -
M: NOPE no questions.
