I can’t help but imagine Jess with the troll face in panel 2.

Well… let’s see now. What has happened to me since Monday. Not a lot, if I’m honest. It snowed today, bringing life to a virtual standstill. I actually moved all my appointments forward a day because of the forecasts of snow. Since I was out and about at abnormal times, at least for me, I got some street passes on the 3DS. Which is about as successful as things got.

There were reports of a mountain lion in the area, but hopefully it kept moving on. The dogs are protected by a fence, but I wouldn’t want to put chain link to the test. I’m not sure if a mountain lion would bother to jump a fence to get at a yapping dog, but who knows. They rarely come this far in, maybe it’s crazy, or something. There are bunnies and feral cats all over the place so the area near the house is actually a good spot for a predator. I like our local bunny though. I would be sad if it disappeared. It keeps the dogs busy by walking the fence. It figured out that as long as it stays on the other side they can’t get it and other dangers stay away. So it keeps within sight of the house almost all the time as far as I can tell.

I finally did get far enough into Dragon Age 2 that I had to fight some things. I’m still not super sure I’m allocating points properly, or skills, but whatever. I found an elf mage, an elf warrior, and Anders from the first game, to add to my party. I can’t tell if he’s special because I loaded my save or not, but if that a factor in his construction I did it. I like that part of the grey warden’s story got carried forward at least. The world seems familiar too. I like that they made it cohesive with the rest of the franchise. Anyway I only had time to play for just the one sitting, but I’ll get back to it eventually. I actually wanted to see where the story went from the first game, so I’m more interested in going back in than with Assasin’s Creed, which I had no prior experience with.

I’d like to finish Borderlands so I can move on to #2 as well, but it looks like I’ll be going it alone. The Teen has lost interest in gaming recently. Or maybe more accurately she’s had enough by the time I’m free so we haven’t done any co op in a while.

Did I tell you guys I did a short comic for an erotic fetish anthology thing? A friend of mine set it up and I decided to help. I kind of missed to tone of the work, I think. In any case my part is very tame and I just used Carol and Thomas rather than exerting the effort of coming up with new people. In my defense this was all happening in the middle of the saga of gathering up my cousin and whatnot. It’s just a preorder now, so I’ll likely give you a link when it’s out for reals too, but you can contact the guy who set it all up right now to get in early. http://agoutirex.tumblr.com/post/75128121350/the-fatty-anthology-muffintop-that-i-have-been In all honesty I don’t know if any of you will be interested in this thing. I’m not exactly sure what the other comics will be like, but I’m guessing they will range from relatively classy all the way to outright base exploitation. I’m not familiar with all the people who contributed. Anyway, pursue that at your own risk, I guess. Just so you know, my bit is 4 pages long, so it may only be worth it if you’re an absolute die hard fan of the comic.

I also set up a patreon page for the comic. http://www.patreon.com/Jackie_Wohlenhaus I’m not really sure what to offer outside of just making the comic, but people say they want to help and this is a way you can, if you want to directly support the work. Right now the page is just a basic thing until I get some feedback. I can add rewards and junk, but I figured I’d ask you guys what you’re after before I started suggesting stuff. I already give most of the things people use as incentives away freely. Wallpapers, and whatnot, you know? I hate to suddenly stick that stuff behind a wall. Still, the fact of the matter is that I need stuff. Stuff that I could use to work faster and hopefully improve the comic generally. If only half the regular readers threw a dollar my way each month I could replace a lot of my old computer stuff that doesn’t work anymore, upgrade my tools, and so on. I could also find someone to set up the books for me, I expect. Maybe even find a way to get those shirts made that people have expressed interest in. Hopefully I could find more time to write more of the Adventures Of Julius Drywood as well.

Anyway, I’m leaving the floor open to suggestions. Do you want more levels of donation? What would you want in return for the extra money? Give me some feedback. A lot of people would like to see me go back to a daily posting schedule. With enough support maybe that could happen. I’m open to the possibility at least. Or if you just want me to do what I do already I guess that’s an option too. All I know is that my work has value. If you think so too I’d appreciate the patronage.
