Canadians + Zombies = <3

I still haven't written anything in my word bubble tattoo (which I've had for over a month, so it's time to get touched up)... Here are the responses from the last poll, so get to votin'!

Poll #1406759 Vote on the word bubbles submissions!

Of the submissions, which do you think should be the first to go on my word bubble tattoo?

ouch! ouch!
I love Canada eh?
Hello HANDsome...
Yes, it's a real tattoo.
High Five!
Fuck right off!

In other news, a very cute, comics makin' Canadian came down to go to Zombie Prom (we're the couple slow dancing in the first photo in that article!) with me and has been terribly encouraging towards me about all things comics and collaborating... Which, after a lousy and unexpected break up in November, has been just what I need. I mean, if I was nervous about collaborating before, you can only imagine how getting unexpectedly dumped by someone I (used to) respect (and was having a really fun relationship with) for not collaborating only increased any nervous feelings I had about collaborating... But even with the increased nervousness, The Canadian (Also known as Jeff) is communicative and sweet enough to push me in the right direction. Jeff was here for almost four days and my housemate (Ashley, who is way nicer and laid back than my previous housemate) loaned Jeff his bike, so he and I got to bike around Portland a bit. Our adventures revolved mainly around eating out, helping a few of my friends with zombie makeup before zombie prom, and karaoke. Jeff also took it upon himself to assemble my drawing table (recently purchased at Ikea with Dave and Shads) on a lazier day when we were hanging out at my house and I was answering a fuck ton of Portland Zine Symposium emails. Since then, I assembled the cushy chair I got to go with it and I now have a nice creative workspace going on in my room... Jeff plans to be back down in Portland for PZS, too.

Another cool thing Jeff assembled for me was a mini comic to go with a mix cd he brought me.. It's basically full of little, tall tales about me. Here is a couple fun images from it..

Speaking of really supportive, sweet people, in only a few short days, a very dear friend and romantic entanglement is returning from traveling in India, Jesse. I am terribly excited to have him around again and look forward to all this camping he's claiming to want to do once her returns..

I am really enjoying life right now. New house is working out really well (we're looking to fill a room at the beginning of June, by the way), I have more than one fulfilling, deep romantic relationship going on (and I used to think one was impossible, In just over a week I will be going up to Olympia for Olympia Comics Festival with Katy Ellis O'Brien (are any of you going?), and I am excited to nanny by bike all summer and teach comics workshops.

You're not actually tattooing anything inside the word bubble are you? Having an empty word bubble so you or whoever else can temporarily Sharpie in whatever fits your current situation (especially for photos) is one of the best tattoo ideas I've ever heard. Even better than my friend who has a connect-the-dots giraffe on her leg.

Uh, no. I am not sure why people keep thinking I am going to tattoo words inside the bubble, the word bubble was meant to be blank.

Perfect. Very versatile.

Yes, it's clearly so much more awesome left blank. I was a little confused by the parenthetical "it's time to get touched up", 'cause I momentarily thought that you meant you were going to have something added to the tat in the process of getting it touched up. Maybe that's what's confusing other people, too.

Seriously, I don't want to impede your though process, but if you would include a random letter (say . . . "r") in your first word bubble sharpie thing . . . well, I would be very happy. I would even pretend I had something to do with it (but only privately, to myself)
May. 28th, 2009 09:35 pm (UTC)
I don't get it..
Uh, what?
May. 28th, 2009 08:15 am (UTC)
Awww shucks, here's hoping all this web traffic you send my way will crash my server
May. 28th, 2009 09:35 pm (UTC)
Seriously! You need to figure out how to monitor that shit!

It's sad you can't embed an image tag for my suggestion.

Actually, strike that. It's sad that there isn't a unicode point for the Hello Kitty icon.
May. 28th, 2009 09:34 pm (UTC)
Agreed. Perhaps you should get on that?
May. 28th, 2009 11:39 pm (UTC)
Maybe there's no Hello Kitty, but the Simpsons are officialy in LaTeX!

May. 30th, 2009 02:00 am (UTC)
That's the best thing I've seen all day. Someone obviously needs to make a Hello Kitty package, too. *cough*
