Comic of the Week: The Bad Chemicals

It’s been a long while since I last updated the “Comic of the Week” segment of this blog. As with everything, I haven’t ceased being interested in webcomics, I’ve just not gotten around to sharing them. Here is the first attempt to rectify this:

Taken from HERE. A very dark, cynical and rather clever webcomic. Emphasis on the DARK part of the description.

From here. This is another relatively new discovery of mine, and it’s consistently brilliant.

A Day in the Life Of…

Yeah, been being slack again – which is sad, when I’ve actually created a small collection of blog posts (mostly vegan bento and food pr0n) that are all ready and waiting, and just have to be published. So hopefully I’ll remember to do that tomorrow; in the meantime, here is some insight into my daily routine. Today went something like this:

1. Woke up way too early, after having had too little sleep thanks to deadshit neighbours and their screaming child.

2. Wasted 40 minutes in transit to uni, assuming no train delays (hah!). Took far longer than usual due to sleep deprivation, because stairs are haaaaard.

3. Got to library 3.5 hours before first class; spent 3.2 hours working on assignments, maybe taking a break to pee if there aren’t any shifty people around looking like they’re gonna steal my desk.

4. Had far too brief lunch with lovely Bethany, inhaled food and dashed to class.

5. Lecture in Old Irish, trying to stay awake and have some idea what the hell is going on.

6. Fun time! Went to the USyd annual library book sale, despite being poor. Buy books, and then realised I had to then carry them home, despite already carrying a laptop and several textbooks.

7. Wasted another 40 minutes in transit home, almost falling down stairs at train station thanks to tiredness and huge freaking feet.

8. Lugged heavy backpack and secondary bag home. Had green smoothie, om nom nom.

9. Stared at the computer screen and my assessment for a while, before realising this was fruitless.

10. Had a nap for an hour. Oh God, sleeeeeeeep! I looooove youuuuuu!

11. Woke up, microwaved leftover curry, then worked on assessment for another 3 or so hours.

12. Went for an hour’s walk, and checked mail (ooooo, latest copy of Vegan Voice! And my new bento accessory from eBay!)

13. Went and got groceries, once I realised that there is no fruit in the entire house. More heavy stuff was carried. *Sigh*

14. Did the dishes, since I’d finally run out of clean and useable coffee mugs.

15. Showered, stared at assessment, and then decided to waste time writing a blog entry.

16. Will shortly be going to bed, and possibly murdering neighbours and their child if I hear a single bloody squawk from that brat.

And then begins tomorrow. Even earlier, with a 3 hour lecture, then study, then a 2 hour lecture, then I go hide in the corner with the doona over my head I maturely deal with the ridiculous workload like the… mature… thing… that I am. Goodnight!

Comic of the Week: Dilbert

I love this, because it’s totally, totally true. From here.

From here. Incidentally, ‘Dilbert’ is one of my all-time favourite strips (also love the animated series); it’s just such a fantastically cynical, and realistic, depiction of working life.

Quiz: What’s your humour style?

Your result for The 3 Variable Funny Test…

the Wit

(81% dark, 23% spontaneous, 11% vulgar)

your humor style:

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you’re probably an intellectual, but don’t take that to mean pretentious. You realize ‘dumb’ can be witty–after all isn’t that the Simpsons’ philosophy?–but rudeness for its own sake, ‘gross-out’ humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it’s also the best, in my opinion.

You Know You’re An Adult When…

You know you’re an adult (a responsible one) when:

  1. It’s a nice day, and your first thought is “oh good, I can get some washing done.”
  2. You skip past the fun junk mail (electronics, toys, clothes, etc.) to see what’s on special at Coles this week.
  3. You can have ice-cream for dinner if you want… but you’re too worried about calories to do so.
  4. It starts to rain, and your first thought is “Is there washing on the line!?!”
  5. You look forward to weekends… so you have more hours to catch up on all your work/housework.
  6. You actually use Facebook for networking/events, not gossip.
  7. When checking emails, over your morning coffee, you automatically delete any “funny forwards” without reading.
  8. You have no bedtime… but you’re always in bed before 11:00pm.
  9. You look forward to looking through the homewares/kitchen appliance section in any department store.
  10. “Spontaneous” nights of drunken revelry are carefully scheduled around work.
  11. This scheduling is painstakingly recorded in your dayplanner/organiser.
  12. You’d wither and die if you lost said dayplanner/organiser.
  13. You keep a blog that’s full of recipes and political rants, not self-indulgent poetry and anecdotes about boys.

I can think of a lot more, but thirteen is a good number at which to finish, I think. Please feel free to add your own in the comments section. Also, I apologise for any typographical errors, I’m so tired I’m going cross-eyed.

(Bonus) Comic of the Week: Devil’s Panties


From here.

Why a bonus comic? Because, as I sit here failing to do my uni work or any of the multitude of tasks that need doing, this perfectly summates my attitude towards being a “responsible adult”.
