J: I should make the burgers.
S: *eating chocolate*
S: Oh, I thought I was helping.
J: Oh, well OK, how do you want to divide the workload?
S: *still eating chocolate*
S: You know what, I think we’ve got it worked out already. :D
J: -_- Can you at least get me a bag?
J: I need a bag! For my meat!
Seventy-five years ago today, Action Comics #1 arrived on newsstands. On the cover, of course, was Superman. But inside the issue was the debut of one of the most enduring characters in pop culture and she came out swinging.
From her very first appearance Lois Lane, one of the most…
Where the hell have we been? WRITING ALL THE THINGS, that’s where.
But we haven’t forgotten the blog, oh no! And this was exactly how we wanted to come back:
S: *crocheting* I need to get a new crochet hook.
S: I need one with a bigger handle. When I hold small things in my hand, it hurts my wrist too much.
J: Good thing you married me, then.
*S’s gears turn as J gives her a not-at-all-sexy sexy look*
Make even more art.
Yes. We just keep on creating (which is why we’ve only got sporadic updates as of late). We’re going from one project to the next and it’s insane and glorious.
Creating is beautiful. We highly recommend it!
A very special guest appears in the new The Rack, featuring art by Tracie Mauk and colors by Joe Hunter.
Was planning on reblogging this regardless, but Joe Hunter being involved sure doesn’t hurt, either. Other people have written about this topic way, way beter than I’m capable of, though.
Award for Excellence
All the love.
J: Look at this sticker I saw on a filing cabinet today! LOOK! “Yes, silly women know nothing about things being top-heavy!”
S: I like that it shows a woman opening the drawers because it’s like HEY YOU SIMPLE MINDED FEMALE don’t crush yourself under a pile of steel and paper!
J: Well a man can’t open a filing cabinet, that’s women’s work! Everyone knows ladies are better at opening and closing.
S: You know what, if a man was grabbing her ass WHILE she was opening too many drawers, he could break her fall. Much safer that way.
You know it’s true love when you make fun of each other. Routinely. :)
J: *waking up from nap*
S: *tiptoes in* So…um. I did a Susan.
J: Is that what we’re calling it now?
S: OK, see, well, I was cleaning up the bookcase. And while I was doing that, I kind of accidentally knocked down Superman fighting Metallo. And it broke.
J: Superman fighting Metallo?
S: It’s a statue! Superman is fighting Metallo. Or a robot.
J: It’s just a robot.
S: I wasn’t sure, the robot looked kind of sentient. He has eyes! Well OK, I guess a lot of robots have eyes. Anyway, it broke in like three places.
S: But it’s OK! I fixed it. I got some super glue. But the tube was all dried out. So I found a SECOND tube. And THAT was dried out but I could kind of see there was still liquid glue in the nozzle part. So I started cutting pieces of the nozzle off with scissors to get to the glue. And by the way, I have NO idea where those pieces of plastic went, they kind of just shot off in random directions.
J: Oh god.
S: So then I put glue all over the pieces, but since the glue-hole in the tube was now like SUPER big it kind of got all over everything. And I super glued my fingers to the robot, but I managed to get them off.
I also remembered that nail polish remover gets super glue off of things, which is why my manicure is completely ruined. And I spent like 20 minutes peeling superglue off my fingers. And then I saw there was a puddle of super glue on the counter too,
J: Did you clean it up?
S: Mostly. But then I figured maybe I should stop.
J: THEN? THAT is when you thought you should stop?
J: Yeah, I’d say that’s a Susan.
