I’ve been reading repeats of the original Bloom County and they’re up to Steve Dallas’ being in a Tess Turbo music video. Given their mutual distaste, it might be funny if she showed up with their child here.
To Binkley, she is 100% adorable. If I have to be honest though, I’ve always liked Binkley’s first girlfriend Blondie, the one he accused of “carbonating his hormones.” She was a breath of fresh air in this strip. Pity she only lasted one week.
Of Course it’s a nightmare, Carolina would be the wish dream (or maybe “Fever Dream”)
Wiz’s power level has really increased since the old days. I remember when everything he tried to do went wrong. =)
Starbucks adds extra caffeine to their coffee. That’s why it tastes so harsh IMO.
Even the planet Earth breathes. There are two surges of oxygen each year, as each hemisphere enters summer. That’s as close to the definition of breathing as it gets.
Troub was the name of an original character in Wizard of ID. A minstrel our troubadour, he was usually seen in the throne room giving a zinger to whatever punchline the strip had.
Plankton is pretty much the Sea’s version of grass. There’s a lot of it around and it’s not limited to a 2D surface either. That and Krill (tiny shrimp) are the bottom of the food chain and reproduce accordingly.
Used to be so anyway. Since the 12 inch snow that closed everything for a week in the mid-90’s, an Inch will close schools for a morning unless it’s a hilly area.
I like to investigate charities before I give to them. You’d be surprised how little goes to the supposed recipients sometimes. There are organizations that rate charities on how much of the Net (ie after expenses) goes to the intended recipients. I won’t donate unless that amount is at least 90% because no matter how good the cause my donation is more useful if more of it gets where it’s supposed to go.
