Happy New Year everyone! We are debuting a new comic and a new style. Now in color!
Yes this is a comic series and we generally try to keep things lighthearted. But this blog was created with the intent of finding laughter in the good and the bad as we navigate through married life and recently we experienced a loss that affected us both very deeply and I felt we couldn’t post another comic without addressing it.

When I ask Mr. K to taste test something, it’s usually a finished recipe that I am happy with. When he asks me to taste something, it’s something that has spoiled and he wants me to confirm it. After obliging for several years, I’ve finally decided enough is enough. I refuse to test his questionable foods. I think he’s old enough to figure out if something has gone bad and if it tastes off, it should just be tossed rather than risk getting sick.
Happy Friday! We don’t go to Starbucks often (there are so many great local roasters near us), but we do have a Starbucks rewards card and we’ll stop in when there is a deal or to redeem a free drink. Starbucks’ free earned drink is especially generous because it applies to any size drink and you can customize to your heart’s content, adding espresso shots, syrups and more. Mr. P loves to maximize and get the most expensive free drink he can order, so he’ll spend a lot of time creating his custom drink. Continue reading
Lately, we’ve had several instances where Mr. P stuffs something in his mouth before I can even finish warning him that it’s not what he thinks it is. Like with these garlic cloves. Now if only he cooked more in the kitchen, then maybe he wouldn’t make these mistakes?
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. Continue reading
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.
