Who Loves Car Rides?


Miss Muppet is actually a very well behaved passenger. Sure she can get excited and her doggy kisses might have a little more meaning than they should, but she’s a good dog. Bottom line, though, you don’t have to live with her.

“Does Not Rock”

So, the computer is back from the shop and I can post comics again. I was planning to post all the comics in the road trip to Albuquerque story line in September since it’s my brother’s birthday month. Oh well, guess it’ll just bleed into October.
This one is about poop too.

“Posed for Long”

Thus begins a series of strips based on my little brother’s move to New York. He was accepted into the Colombia School of Music and will be working on a Masters for education…or something like that.

“Life of a Cat”

My brother was telling me that there is a parasite the lives in cats. In order for this parasite to reproduce, it somehow manages to infect mice. This infection causes mice to have an affinity for cats rather than their normal behavior. Apparently, this parasite can live in humans and can possibly explain why we have crazy cat ladies. Though one study only found a correlation between this parasite and reckless driving.
Could this parasite have been the cause of me crashing my car months ago? Sounds like BS.

“Inna’s Turn”

I don’t think I’m that critical of Inna’s driving. I’m still torn about the whole vehicle thing. On the one hand I feel free from the burden of that giant money sucking machine. I don’t really miss driving or the traffic. I can space out and enjoy the scenery. But on the other hand, I kind of miss getting to places quickly.

“Relativistic Mass…Transit”

I’m well into the third month of taking public transit everywhere, but unlike the comic, I don’t miss driving. Don’t get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoy the convenience my automobile provides, but like the comic, I feel free from the slavery of the industry.
Once I get my car fixed, I might continue with transit. I can’t wait to be that old lady who only drives to church and the grocery.

“The Accident, Part 4”

So Inna requested that I make another comic in The Accident story arc. She felt that there was no resolution. She’s probably right. Here is the comic that attempts to fill those shoes.
When I showed this to her this morning she said the same thing. I guess it’s tough to figure out the resolution if it hasn’t happened in real life. I guess you will all have to wait…or until I figure out something clever.
Also, it’s hard to be creative when you only have 4 images of yourself behind the wheel, and in each photo you’re making the same face. I’m such a terrible actor.
