I wanna sleep in tomorrow x.x
That’s an interesting hat.
Sort of a Russian fur hat, that went all hippie long-locked, lay down for a nice little nap, and was suddenly startled awake and is bristling with fear.
Or, possible, it’s a very large tribble.
I was thinking it like a really big Tribble pelt myself. LOL
or wub fur… wouldn’t that be interesting 🙂
Did the wub have fur? Wiki says they were pig-like…
Tantilizing idea, though, as the wub seemed to to be interested in mythology and Odysseus. It’d fit in fine with these nerds!
She needs to come out with an extremely long cigarette holder saying, “I’m looking for my husband… Fang! Ha-Haaaaa!”
i’m picturing Natasha, from Rocky n Bullwinkle, though i don’t remember if they ever showed her in anything other than the slinky black dress.
Oh my God, what does it say about me that I instantly knew who you’re referring to? That I’m older than dirt?
It means you’re a member of a refined, educated and sophisticated generation, my friend. 😀
Fur hats look cute on girls. Although I am even more “Aww cuuute”-imised when a girl wears an Ushanka (I blame E.John’s “Nikita”for that)
Sorry veganists, but nothing beats real fur when it gets really freezing.
GAH! wanted “staryy-eyed Brandi” to go with my former comment..grr..
Please Paul? Brandi, or Jin with an Ushanka, red star emblem included??
Bud. Wouldn’t be hard to visualise Bud as a Russian peasant…
We must not allow a Golem Gap!
A Golem Sims or Golem Barami, maybe.
That jar takes coupons, right?
Heh- I blame that video for my infatuation with Russian/para-Russian girls as well…
“nothing beats real fur when it gets really freezing”
Sorry, but can’t agree on that. You’ve obviously never tried a set of modern military foul-weather overalls. Sitting on a pier monitoring a pressure testing rig in -30F weather wearing one of those things … and I was SWEATING. 😉
Gore-tex has come a looooong way since it was patented.
OH MY GOD THEY ARE SO FREAKING SWEET IT MAKES MY TEETH HURT.
Stop It!!! You are making my sides hurt …
So sweet and it answered several questions made in the last few days, mostly concerning location.
(Little hearts floating skyward behind them as they walk)
A couple of the hearts in Shelly’s dialog baloon look more like flies.
And he STILL hasn’t noticed her sudden long hair. At least hasn’t mentioned it yet. He’s a cop, he’s trained to notice stuff like that. Unless it’s been months since they’ve seen each other which would seem odd in itself. I’m not sure how long it would take to grow her hair back to butt length from super short though. 6 months? A year? Two?
Maybe he assumes that she’s just wearing hair extensions. They’re quite popular these days, and it’s not all that unusual to see women whose hair changes apparent length from one day to the next.
Besides, a lot of men have a dominant gene on their Y chromosome which affects their vision systems, and makes them unable to notice changes in hairstyle, hair color, and makeup. It’s the same genetic shortfall which leaves us grasping for an answer, when asked that deadly “Do these clothes make me look fat?” question somebody alluded to a few days ago 🙂
I would think he was more the “My girlfriend is weird, but I like her that way, so. I won’t think about it” type
That question was asked two forums over, I think. I wouldn’t suggest going over there, though – it’s got Questionable Content.
Most cops tend not to notice such mundane things, unless it’s running away or pulling a weapon on them.
At least that’s what a friend of mine who’s married to a cop tells me.
Hey–maybe if it were related to their jobs, and they got paid to notice?? 😀
We’ve seen before that he’s not the most observant, when it comes to Shelly, at least. When they first got together, she had the cuffs on him without him noticing…
In his defense I think we should just call it love at first heist
Like the outfit…
Jes’ plain cute.
Hey! What happened to my Gravatar?
Have you looked under the desk?
Nah – that’s where i found the chord.
Were you in search of the lost chord?
(too lazy to make a proper link)
That was what i was aiming at, yeah.
Hopefully missing it did not make you moody and blue…
I could do with a morning of sleeping in and watching the snow. Unfortunately in Portland winter is either cold and dry or warmer and wet. The convergence of conditions for snow are veeeery rare.
Best of all, they managed to escape Punk Yoga unscathed by Luci’s caustic tongue.
Oh, i dunno – wouldn’t surprise me if Luci was a Shelly/Justin shipper – signs that Shelly is growing up.
*crosses fingers, closes eyes, clicks heels*

Last time we saw Luci, she and Shelly were on good terms. Even the little elemental liked her.
“We can sleep in tomorrow and watch the snow.”
“Sounds good, and maybe after I make muffins, I’ll transform into a 20 foot long mythic being.”
but the problem with that statement is that Phix, and Shellynx AREN’T “mythical”… they really DO exist!…
Copy editor mode:
Actually, that was correct usage … mythic can also mean “extremely large or great in a way that does not seem real” which would certainly apply!

Keep up the good work. It is a tough job, but somebody has to do it. Pull something out of the pun jar for your trouble.
UM, no… i wasn’t being a grammar nazi, i was pointing out that a SPHINX wasn’t a MYTHICAL creature… we know that at least 3 exist in Wapsi-verse… Shellynx, Phix and whoever the third (unnamed) one was, that made Shelly compare Phix to her being a “potted daisy”. that’s all, sorry for the confusion. 😉
Her comparison was being made about the Apos she met in the Time Forest, not back in normal space.
It’s nice to see a little bit of Shelly’s old personality starting to creep back in as well.
Shelly is looking pretty good now, nothing like a talking-to from your Conscience to put things in proper perspective. Of course most of us can’t have an actual talk liek Shelly and Connie can…
Or Connie and MONICA, for that matter…
do those hearts mean that shelly has moved on from the casual relationship that tina pointed out?
Shelly really dresses nice to go work 😀
and /agrees with rest of commenters.
So sweet i got diabetes… my heart… HHHHHHHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGH.
“There might just be a market for candied Kramegame.”. 🙂
Why not, if there was a market for sliced sections of dessicated Ferengi remains …
Looking at the DOT web cams for that area, I see it actually is snowing there.
Overhere it’s just scary cold winds and hail… HURTING HAIL!!
Yesterday by dear collegues giggled about my fur hat, now they envy me…. 😛
No NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOO.
I’m in the direct path of any storms that hit the TC!
And you didn’t post a link? well, here’s Blackhawk CO. That’s the only traffic cam I look at (to see if their traffic was so bad as to make riding a bicycle dangerous) http://220.127.116.11/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi?resolution=480×360
Blackhawk was the CO town that banned bicycles from their main drag, which was bad because it’s the only highway in 20 miles in either direction and cuts off a major trans-continental bike route,
Oh, sorry. The scale of the map makes it look like they’ve a camera every few feet. Still, they do have a lot of them:
Just click on the little dots.
You could cut/paste Monica & Kevin into this panel, and it’d fit perfectly. In fact, Shelly’s jab perhaps fits Monica moreso than her, to say nothing about her “unique” choice of fashion.
The reasons I had for my tirade last night sound like excuses this morning. I went off on you completely unwarranted and sincerely apologize for it.
Accepted, thank you.
Just a wild thought — What if Justin wakes up nice and warm in the morning, and finds it is because he is wrapped up in a sleeping Sphinx Shelly. Don’t know if that would be a good way or a bad one to break the news.
Sounds..well… “romantic” in a sense.
Would even be better if Shelly woke as a sphinx because she felt the slow caressing of a… flea-comb!!
Justin: Yeah, I wondered why I itched, now I know and am fixing it. Ever thought about a fashionable flea-collar?”
Here’s hoping this works out. She’s really falling for him, all the worry and speculation might be for nothing if he freaks out and doesn’t come back.
Been making wallpapers for my new not-dumb phone.
Just messing around…
Background is one of a number of leaf photos i tok in the neighbourhood about a month ago; i used the Olympus e450’s “Pop Art” filter, which hypes up the primary colours and does other things to giv a sort of poster-ish look.
Fits like a glove.
The un-messed-with version of the background – along with several other shots – can be seen here.
The art and the other photos all look great.
Relax Shelly, you deserve to be happy…and you can talk over coffee.
I’m a bit disappointed, that there’s no wallpaper with Shelly.
Yo, Jabber – your cue!
Damn it Fairpoint, you beat me to it!!!! lol
I’ve only got this one…
and this one…
Cool take on “The Year of the Cat”
The whole poem is here.
Oh, this one…
This one, of course….
Actually did this one to do Jacqui and Amanda…
My favorite drawing of her…
And except for the lone gunman a couple of posts down, this makes all I’ve got…
Another nice thing outsiders brought to my people: Big Furry Hats.
Have we ever before seen Shelly wearing lipstick?
I don’t think I ever seen Shelly looking so fine… O.O
Then there’s this one…
Oops…should have went three posts up.
Paul…. the last strip it said “His shower” now we’re told it’s a yoga studio??? Confusion! 🙂
It was all taking place in the yoga studio shower. Shelly’s conscience said that Just wouldn’t sneak up on Shelly in his own shower, as in, “what makes you think he’d sneak up on you in the shower, he wouldn’t even sneak up on you in his own shower.”.
