"Crazy Bus"

Last week was pretty rainy. So I bummed rides from my coworker and it totally spoiled my bus riding rhythm. Sorta forgot how much extra effort I need to put in to stay on schedule. Oh well.

"Brothers Are Wii"

Watching my brothers play video games is pretty hilarious. Things get heated really fast and it's always the controller's fault of the game doesn't go right. I mean, c'mon! Friggin' thing needs batteries. We tried to rent the new Mario Kart, but it was all sold out everywhere...So, monster truck racing had to do.

Later on my sister rented the Ghostbusters game from the library. Super cool, but too many cut scenes. Anyway, I'm running out of Christmas pictures to make comics from. Maybe we'll be back to regular old jokes in February.

"Present Enough"

Click photo for larger image

Here's another Christmas comic. My sister's really not that greedy. I don't know how you all distribute presents, but in my family my dad acts as the "Santa." He reads out loud the to/from note on the gifts, while all the kids (now 29/27/26/15) stand in line waiting to hand him the next one.

God, we're starting to get old.

"Beyond the Black Box"

Is it too late for me to jump on the O'Brien Vs. Leno bandwagon?

So today is my teenage sister's birthday. Yeah and I guess she likes Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus. Go figure? Happy birthday sis.

"People Person"

So, it's pretty certain that I won't be repairing my car any time soon. Apparently the other party spent more than my coverage on their repairs and now I have to pay out of pocket. Jerks. This really makes me one of the people.

I suddenly noticed yesterday as I was riding the subway, that a zillion people were getting on and off at each stop. Wow. Maybe it's because I travel during rush hour, but Inna and I noticed the same thing around midnight last Saturday. GOOOOOO METRO!

Also, sorry about the lame Avatar joke in the comic. I still don't see the reasoning behind calling the natives of the planet "The People." People are giving Jimmy a lot of credit for his imagination...but really, "The People?" I probably would've settled for "Earth People" or "Forest People."

"Relativistic Mass...Transit"

Click photo for larger image.

I'm well into the third month of taking public transit everywhere, but unlike the comic, I don't miss driving. Don't get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoy the convenience my automobile provides, but like the comic, I feel free from the slavery of the industry.

Once I get my car fixed, I might continue with transit. I can't wait to be that old lady who only drives to church and the grocery.

"Family Photo, Part 1"

Click photo for larger image.

Inevitably, a family vacation always leads to a family photo. Everything actually went pretty smoothly.

The funniest part of the evening was when my mom got drunk on margaritas. We were all pretty drunk, but listening to her slurred speech and jump from topic to topic was classic.

The other funny part was the previous day when my brother was driving us from Portland to Corvallis. In the middle of the night the car ran out of gas on I-5. I guess it was a little scary, especially the part when some random tow truck pulled up next to us and asked if we needed "help". Murder. Thank goodness my brother called his roadside assistance and someone was already on the way.

"Flight of the Discords"

Click photo for larger image.

I was initially planning to make some comics while I was visiting my family up in Oregon this Christmas. But wouldn't you know it? I forgot my camera's computer cable. Oh well. Now you all get to relive my vacation.

Tonight's comic is partially true...except that I wasn't sitting next to a fat guy. Instead, the guy was really muscly armed. So muscly armed that his biceps were practically punching me in the face by just being there.
