#248 Sock It To Me

Guys, normally I staff meetings feel like such a waste of time. There’s usually only about 5-10 minutes of something interesting, then it becomes a drag. I don’t know what happened, but the latest staff meeting some how got me hooked. I have no idea what these puppets were talking about, but I was mesmerized. I hope that management sees this and decides to put on a variety act à la The Muppet Show every time. #pleasegod more like #deargod

Also, I’m sorry that I haven’t posted a comic in a while. But I have been working on a super secret new project that I hope to share soon.

Sometimes “good enough” is good enough. But what if you haven’t even reached that point? A grade of ‘B’ or ‘C’ is still a passing grade, but an incomplete is an incomplete.

Oh well, it’s somebody else’s problem.

This is a continuation of the previous comic. I’m still surprised when I think about how little value management puts into communication and teamwork. Every now and then the question “why do you need to talk about the project” keeps coming up. Hm, I wonder why?

One thing that I’ve learned over the past 2 years is that communication within a team is extremely valuable. I thought it was just something you say because it sounds right. But after what I’ve been through, I thoroughly understand it.

Everyone these days is so busy. But how busy? Sometimes you look over and see someone’s inbox completely empty, yet they say that they’re busy. I mean, maybe they’re busy in other aspects of their life? Maybe they’re busy building and navigating their “mind palace.” Or maybe they’re just busy doing nothing. That’s a thing right?

Get busy living or get busy dying. No in between.

I have to thank my friend and colleague Brian for the phrase “nuke and pave.” I mean, sometimes that’s all you can do. Sometimes there’s really no fixing something. Cut your losses and start over.

One of these days I’ll get a spy cam so that I can see what the animals are doing while we’re gone.  I’m sure it’s exactly like this.

#235 Still In Bed

I may have said it before, but I’ll say it again, and again, and again that one of the best feelings in the world is having a cat on you. Time stops. Enjoy the warmth. The weight. It’s an exercise in patience and stress management. Whatever you might have going on, have to do, or need to deal with can wait.

On a different note, in reality the roles in the comic are often switched.  My wife is usually the one who struggles with the idea of disturbing the cat by getting out of bed.  The cats don’t normally like to relax on me for an extended amount of time. There are only a few special conditions which allow it.

Guys, I wrote this comic yesterday morning.  Sure, I’m reusing a bunch of panels from previous strips, but sometimes the story just writes itself. And here’s the funny thing: this LITERALLY HAPPENED to me in real life yesterday afternoon. You know the saying, “truth is stranger than fiction.”  You can’t make this kind of absurdity up.

The sad thing is that I knew a few weeks ago that there was a 90% chance this would happen.

My wife told me about some neighbor on her street growing up who would always walk around with a cat on his shoulder. She and her friends called him “Catmandoo”. That’s me.

I completely blame my friend from high school for my love of all things kitty. When we were roommates, she lured in the cutest little guy and adopted him. But eventually she had to move out and I was stuck with him, so I became his cat dad. I miss that little doodle.

Now, I’ve got a white prince and a little fatty. Check out my Instagram feed and you’ll see them.

One of my dreams is to retire and run a cat sanctuary…a cat farm.

Bonus hilarity:

Have you worked on something for so long that you actually begin to hate how it’s turning out? And sometimes all you can do is polish a turd. Sometimes all you can do is come to terms with polishing that turd until it’s so smeared and spread out that it’s just everywhere and a mess. I guess, if that’s what they’re paying me for, right?

Now to get used to the smell.
