Comments and Answers
Although I always read the comments left on my posts, I rarely get around to answering them. What can I say? I suck at this, guys. So today I'm taking the time to go back and dig up all the questions you asked in the last month that I never answered. Feel free to leave more in the comment section of this post. But I'm cutting you off tomorrow (at midnight). A girl's got to have a life. Or so I hear. I think I need the time to FIND one.
Q. From Blewknight on 07/07/09.
"2nd pic, the blue thingy next to the fish. WAY cool! What is it? I want one!"
A. Those are both fish charms. The light blue one (next to the dark blue one) is a miniature. My Grandparents got them for me in China. I can't find them in America. Which probably means they're painted with lead.
Q. From Gramps on 06/30/09.
"Imagine all the effort spent fighting off the alligators and zombies. (Or do alligators and zombies cancel each other out?)"
A. Dude. Zombie Alligators are no joke.
Q. From Woman In A Window on 06/30/09.
"That sign...is it a quad tone? You could do just about anything in a quad tone and it would be pretty."
A. I'm ashamed to say that I have no idea what a quad tone is. If by "quad" you mean clicking on four different actions until I get a cool effect, then YES, I used a quad tone.
Q. From Furiousball on 06/24/09.
"Why isn't hoop posting these?!"
A. Because Hoop is a pussy.
Q. From Tawcan on 06/24/09.
"Maybe [you should] have a weekly Hoop Comic segment?"
A. Hoop's actually working on another comic right now. But they take him awhile to create. So we're thinking they might be a monthly thing.
Q. From Niki on 06/23/09.
"Duff is a cutie!! What is he?"
A. Duff is a Rat Terrier. He's also very interested in the camera, which makes him a hard subject to take pictures of. Here's a picture of him as a puppy and again at two years old.
Q. From Chris on 06/23/09.
"When is your line of gorgeous cards going to come out?! :)"
A. I love you Chris. You always push me to do great things. I should have some cards out soon. Hopefully. Depending on when I get some moolah. Lol.
Q. From Chris on 06/11/09.
"Screw I Heart Etsy - what sort of goodies did you get at the bookstore?! :D"
A. I literally have a four foot stack of books to read. Here they are, my summer reading pile, in no particular order:
"Hope Diamond: The Legendary History of a Cursed Gem" by Richard Kurin
"Immortal In Death" and "Rapture In Death" by J.D. Robb
"sTori Telling" by Tori Spelling
"Quicksilver" by Neal Stephenson
"The Shack" by Paul Young
"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
"Monkeywrench" by P.J. Tracy
"The Protector's War" by S.M. Stirling
"Passion Unleashed" by Larissa Ione
"A Lion Among Men" (Wicked 3) by Gregory Maguire
"The House Of The Scorpion" by Nancy Farmer
"The Halloween Tree" by Ray Bradbury
...and I'm sure I've missed some.
Q. From Fiwa on 06/11/09.
"Did it have a shop kitty? A used book store is nothing without a shop kitty."
A. Oddly, they don't. But I think it's because this place is so enormous, a shop kitty might get lost or crushed or multiply without anyone ever noticing.
Q. From Karen on 06/09/09.
"I like the leaning mailbox but I was really hoping for a picture of the neighbor's front yard swing set. Maybe you can fit that in next week?"
A. Would you believe, I went out to take a picture of it and it was gone! Either my neighborhood is even more ghetto than I thought and someone stole it, or someone complained and they took it down.
Got questions? Lay 'em on me guys.
