Solitaire Staring

I was just amused by the idea of CG having a staring contest with himself.  Then he can't win without also losing.  Such a dilemma.  :)

Scenes from finish lines

The idea for the January 15, 2011 strip comes from my husband, who observed the finish-line situations noted in the strip.  I did a half marathon on the first of this year, and he was disappointed that nothing extreme happened at the finish line!

Strip for Saturday, January 8, 2011

The characters in my strip are most decidedly NOT me. (Okay, the woman in panel four of the "Library" strip is loosely based on me--when I'm in the library during my lunch hour I just want to be left alone!) But otherwise, the characters are not me and and I am not the characters.

HOWEVER. For the longest time, I thought the saying "A stitch in time saves nine" made no sense whatsover, because I thought it was about a stitch into TIME itself. My misinterpretation only declined from there.  When I realized my mistake--and my realization was embarrassingly belated--I felt pretty silly.  :)

(Similarly, I misread "I want to be in that number" in "When the Saints Go Marching In" well into adulthood and still hate the song because it led me astray like that.)

Welcome to my new blog for the "Crazy Guy and (Not) Jesus" comic strip.  I will continue to post the strips at the Webcomicsnation site, but this blog will serve as a simulcast and supplement.
