Feeling Rough

Feeling Rough

I'd like to thank everyone who checked in on me last week to make sure I was ok. I am. My life had been rough for a few weeks, and I guess it showed in what I was sharing here.
Distractions

Distractions

Life. It's not always sunshine and roses. Not for me, and not for anyone I know. Except this one woman I follow online. She recently met the love of her life. The one she can truly be her unabashed self with.
Chips At Night

Chips At Night

There's something about going to sleep with a full stomach that displeases my body. Not my mouth. My mouth doesn't care about the body's displeasure. It only cares about the crunchy crunch crunch.
How To Win

How To Win

You know how it's glaringly obvious what the closest people in your life should do to improve themselves and be happier, healthier and more impactful in their lives. You know how it's really hard to keep this valuable information to yourself.
Failure, Success & Self-esteem

Failure, Success & Self-esteem

I did something this morning that I think may have been a mistake. It's not the end of the world, but I amy have failed at making a big licensing sale, and lost an opportunity to create interesting cartoons for a new client.
Yuckiness

Yuckiness

Sometimes when I'm in a particularly fearful mood, I look around and I'm horrified by the amount of opportunities to be infected and afflicted by other people's yuckiness.
Smoking

Smoking

I used to smoke. I tried to quit, but it was really hard, so I tried to cut back. Because what’s the harm of just one tiny, little, smoke a day? But always, the one that I allowed myself to have weighed heavy on me all the time.
Ex Party Girl

Ex Party Girl

Last week, a woman I barely know joked that I was a “good-time girl” during a dance class which was held at 9 in the morning. And I loved it! Just as much as I love a good time!
Obsessiveness

Obsessiveness

This way of thinking does not work. Obsessive thoughts, demonized, and then acted upon, can not be counteracted. There are better ways to handle obsessive thoughts.
The Automobile

The Automobile

Hello Sweet Car, If you happen to see this, please don't think I mean it. I'm a cartoonist, so I joke around about everything. I think you're the best! Keep on going strong, like the strong beast that you are!
The Honest Truth

The Honest Truth

Ever insist that someone tell you the truth with a scowl so severe on your face that the person on the receiving end is afraid to tell the truth because if they did, you’d attack them?
Gentle Manipulation

Gentle Manipulation

I'm good at general manipulation (getting people to do things for me). I guess you could say I'm charming, and I like being charming, and people seem to enjoy being charmed.
