Mr. P loves to take on little “projects.” I don’t mind him finding new hobbies–anything to get him away from his game playing– but almost of his projects have similar results. First, he’s convinced he has to buy a ton of new tools to do his project. Then for several days he’ll be completely engrossed in his new project, spending every moment of his free time working on it. And then after a few days, he’ll abandon it. His projects have resulted in us buying a sewing machine (he wanted to alter his own clothes), half a dozen wood cutting tools (he was going to built furniture), ruined baking pans (he used them to bake mini clay figures)…the list goes on.

If you’re wondering why it’s been a little quiet around here, this is partially why. I regret ever suggesting he download the game. I’m having fun playing, but I’m not a serious player and don’t spend a lot of time playing. All I care about is catching some of the cute pokemon. Continue reading
Sorry there is no official strip this week. It’s not so much that we were busy preparing for Comic-Con, but rather all Mr. P has done these last few weeks is play Pokemon Go and hasn’t done anything else to create a comic story. He plays at work, at home, when we’re out. When he’s not playing, he’s researching and reading up on the game. If only he was this diligent with other things. Anyhow, we are at Comic Con this weekend, though we are not dressed up like this illustration. Have a great weekend!
It is less than one week until San Diego Comic Con! It really snuck up on us this year. You’d think Comic Con is all just fun, but it’s also quite physically exhausting, especially if you’re there from start to finish every day. We usually try to do some “endurance” training the weeks leading up to Comic Con so that we’re ready for all the walking and carrying around heavy bags full of purchases and random free swag. I’ve been exercising pretty regularly the last few months, so I think I’m good to go, but since our vacation to Japan, Mr. P has put a permanent snooze on his daily evening calendar reminder to exercise. (I’m not kidding. He used to have a daily calendar reminder at 7PM that would pop-up on his phone to exercise. He kept hitting snooze/dismiss everyday and eventually cancelled it.) Continue reading
Mr. P and I have this rule where we try to never revisit a place we had a really good experience at. This is especially the case with restaurants. While part of me really wants to revisit a place where we had a memorable meal, we’ve found that it’s never as good as the first time and a revisit can often tarnish a wonderful memory. Continue reading
Woohoo, another comic! So the other day Mr. P fed me a vitamin while I was sleeping… Continue reading
We have a new comic this week! Three weeks in a row of new content. Woohoo! Continue reading
Hello, hello! We are sorry for the long hiatus. Things got busy, then we went on vacation, and now here we are. We have several stories to share from our trip to Japan. Here is the first one!
We actually had an amazing meal at this restaurant– it was just really awkward when the owner kept calling Mr. P “Donald Duck.” Since there is a Disneyland in Tokyo, I couldn’t help but wonder if he thought we were pranking him. The language barrier was quite difficult to deal with since we don’t speak Japanese and many of the restaurants we went to didn’t have English speaking staff. We’ve been to so many countries, but Japan might have been the hardest to communicate in. Interestingly, the “must-try” restaurants that are popular among food tourists usually had the least amount of English spoken and random places we’d stumble into usually spoke more English (probably to attract tourists in).
No joke– the last frame is exactly what I see when I ask Mr. P to help me out with a recipe I’m trying to take photos of. Continue reading
