One of these days, I'm going to snap and really do it. [May. 6th, 2009|12:05 pm]

You guys, those vitamins... were so... so delicious.
Why would they make them so good if they didn't want you to eat them all in one sitting?
I think my favorite was "Fred."

Ah, childhood fashion.

I wish I had a picture of me wearing my "I'm Bart Simpson, who the hell are you?" T-Shirt. Alas-- and mysteriously, because I wore the damn thing all the time-- I couldn't track down one photo. I did, however, locate evidence of me wearing a couple t-shirts of unparalleled oldness. And a photo of me wearing my Jughead Jones hat.... backwards.
I was such a scheming little monster. Just look at that little smirk. I'm plotting something. I can tell.


Hey! I'm gonna be at The Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend!

Then I'm gonna be at The Maine Comic Arts Festival the following Sunday!

In between those things, I will probably receive my degree from graduate school. So I'll go to one convention as a bachelor of fine arts, and attend the next one as a MASTER.
(thesis approval pending)

Meanwhile, I'm gettin' a haircut. It's all "wooly mammoth" up in here.

my dad had very similar rules. I never got GI Joe and stuff like that, healthy lunches and all that. Especially the Flinstones Vitamins! Oh man so good.

that pic makes it look like you are on a set of a 90s Nick show too.

I didn't even have rules like that, my mom was a baker and there were cake bits *everywhere*. But once I snuck under the desk in the kitchen and ate half a bottle of orange flavored baby aspirin. And I didn't get sick either!

Flinstones vitamins. Except I was about three, so it was a great endeavor, sneaking away from parents, opening the car, climbing into the back, going through cloth bags to find the vitamins, opening the child safety cap.... and I DID get sick. I vomited a huge rainbow colored vomit and passed out.

My childhood home was under an Simpsons embargo, except for the episode where Homer goes to Capitol City to be the mascot, which my mom taped.

Okay, judging by that comic, we were television watching twins. One of my best friends and I still make Rocko's Modern Life jokes, and I still watch Pee Wee's Playhouse on DVD. Mostly while drawing/painting. It helps. Maybe that's why my stuff is so odd?

We had all the same rules at my house! D:
And: how in the world were you given a Bart Simpson t-shirt when you were not supposed to be watching TV? That seems so odd! (IE: The only character clothing I had was Mickey Mouse and Tweety Bird.)

My mom also didn't let us have violent toys, more specifically toy guns. One time my brother chewed a slice of cheese into the shape of a gun. Congrats on being a MASTER!

My kid recently ate an entire bottle of gummy bear vitamins. The funniest thing for me was her utter horror and dismay and inability to explain when I discovered it. Little kid brains kill me.

Wow. My childhood was your childhood.

When I went to college instead of freaking out and getting drunk all the time I ate sugared cereal and drank soda as my way to rebellion! Take that!
