Grocery Store Fruit

Durians are a very pungent fruit. Peaches are not in season currently. Mark and I had a funny exchange in the produce department and this is the result. Wegmans has basically every fruit in the world and you can be very adventurous and just try one but you could end up with a durian (to be fair, I haven't tried it but I have heard that it's very strong).

A: Durian, stinking foreigner! Peach, you're not from around here.

Panicking Car

I taught my little siblings a helpful rhyme:
"When in danger or in doubt,
Run in circles, scream and shout!"
It's super helpful in nearly any situation. I highly suggest trying it any time you feel in danger or in doubt.

L: Why is your car spinning donuts with the radio on max volume?!
N: Oops, I hit the panic button.

Steering Through Life

Happy Birthday to my youngest sibling! He's still a minor for another year but he's old enough to drive and that's scary but he's a responsible kid so that's good.
Maybe more people need to carry around steering wheels. Maybe this will be the new classic graduation present - instead of a GPS or compass, a steering wheel!

L: Why are you holding a steering wheel?
N: I'm trying to get in control of my life.

Chicken Lollipops

So I saw boneless chicken lollipops on a menu and my brother-in-law didn't believe me but there they were. None of us ordered them but I assume they meant chicken kebabs. It was an Indian restaurant and it's always interesting to see how words translate into English. (did you know that schnitzel translates to escarole? found that out in Germany. nobody uses escarole over here)

Yes, this is my take on the Superman poster "You will believe a man can fly."
Honestly I liked the Aquaman movie. It has funny parts, likable characters, and a decent plot (but not very original). It does have some very scary parts so definitely not a kid movie, but it is PG-13 so that makes sense (though I am always surprised at the number of children I see in PG-13 movie showings).

Diabetes Games

This was inspired by a man in my church, who has an insulin pump thing on his hip and it beeps sometimes and he'll check it, and I thought of my little nephew who would snuggle up to me when I had my iPod Touch out (this was in my pre-smart-phone days) and ask "angry birds?" so nicely. I guess kids don't really ask "got any games" any more since most have their own phones (which is just a rant I mean discussion for another day).
Also, you might notice the text looks kinda like my hand writing - I tried out MS Font Maker to make a font of my own and it looks kinda similar. It was fun to make. Not sure if I'll keep using it.

Coffee vs Tea: Cakes

It's a question that you have to answer for yourself. But wait! Someone else already has answered it!

Note: I hope people realize that many of my little text blurbs have hyperlinks in them because if you don't know that, you will probably not get why I say there's an answer but don't say what it is (you have to click through because I don't like re-writing what someone else has already produced). So if something doesn't make sense, maybe see if there's a link in the text? No guarantee though because sometimes my mind is on a different track than most and it just makes sense to me and might not to anyone else.

A: Why are coffee cakes and tea cakes so different?
B: *shrugs*

Advanced Deflection

Sometimes you just don't want to answer but you can't not answer so you come up with a way to have more time. I could have had the first guy respond with "Do you know where I could find him?" instead of "ok" but I just thought of that while typing this up and I'd have to think of how the second panel would go. Maybe just the two of them staring at each other in silence. That could be funny.

A: Who is going to make this hard decision?
B: You should ask my wife's husband.
A: Ok.
A: Wait a minute...

Lip Service

Specifically Isaiah 29:13-14.
There's a song by Relient K called "Maybe It's Maybelline" and I mentioned it to my husband and he thought Maybelline was just some woman they were blaming stuff on because he's not familiar with beauty commercials, specifically the "Maybe she's born with it; maybe it's Maybelline" ones which is what the song is referencing. The song is about blame-shifting and saying "maybe it's you, maybe it's me, or maybe it's Maybelline" so I can see how my husband was confused. The slogan, on the other hand, is trying to say that Maybelline makeup is so natural looking that you can't quite tell if the lady is wearing makeup or just is naturally that good looking. Also, I'm totally fine with my man not knowing all the beauty commercial slogans. It'd be kinda odd if he did.

Sometimes you want to expand your options but maybe check that you can? I remember way back in the day we were at a fair and they had that little pool of goldfish and you paid like a quarter for one scoop to try and get a fish and my little brother caught SIX on his first scoop. We set up a little aquarium for them but they started disappearing and we didn't know where they were going but we noticed the dog had taken to patiently waiting by the tank and she just liked to chill there. Then we realized the fish were jumping out of the tank if we forgot to close the lid after feeding them and our dog was just enjoying the little snacks. :( We then remembered to close the lid every time and two of the fish lasted like two years which is crazy for a cheap little goldfish.

G1: I think that we should see other people.
G2: How?

Fellowship vs Ladyship

Some ships are nicer than others.
Also, happy day-after-your-birthday to my brother-in-law, but I'm not sure if he reads my blog.

Spicy Changes

Any great plans for the new year? Any changes you've resolved to do? Remember, variety is the spice of life and your stomach can only handle so much spice. But it is good to have at least some flavoring which could be thought of as spice (not all spices are spicy).

A: How do you feel about the recent changes?

Piney Pork

I thought of this a while ago but didn't get around to drawing it until recently. I think my piney pork looks kinda cute. I accidentally drew a hedgehog instead of a porcupine and I realized the joke didn't work like that so I redrew the animal. But it was a little tedious to draw the hedgehog then erase it and draw a porcupine.

Going Sideways

Happy New Year!
Maybe for crabs, things going sideways is seen as a good thing? Who knows. Also, I realize live crabs shouldn't be red (that's what happens when they're boiled) but they are more recognizable when red, and also I forgot the boiling fact when I drew this.

Snail: How's life?
Crab: Things are going sideways, as always.
