1435 It’s The Part I Was Born For!

Be careful Nina, you’re a pilgrim in an unholy land.

Nina found a work around for being a bit too much woman for the Lincoln’s towels. Just use twice as many. I actually tested this to see if it would work. My shoulders are probably broader than Nina’s and I got the cris cross to hold well enough to move carefully. She’s plenty graceful enough to pull it off I think. You have to flip the towel over one shoulder, pull it around your back, then up into the first bit. Itdoesn’t look nearly as good on me…

I’m still getting accustomed to my new cpap mask. It does what it’s supposed to, but it really messes up my sleep patterns. Basically it’s 4 hours of sleep, wide awake for 4 hours, then 4 more hours of sleep and some change. The problem is that I can’t really tell how tired I am anymore. I’ll be fine for a bit then I just wilt with no warning. It’s kind of like I’m relearning how to sleep since I’ve been doing the apnea thing for a very long time potentially. I don’t move in my sleep now, so I’m really sore sometimes and have to lie on the floor for a while to fix my back. It must be helping though because I can feel my toes. like, I’m aware I can, which is abnormal. I haven’t been able to actually feel if I have athlete’s foot for as long as I can remember. There just wasn’t enough pain most of the time to notice, but now it hurts and it’s enough that I notice. Some mornings my foot is even foot shaped before I get out of bed, which hasn’t happened for almost a year? I’m also more alert and think more clearly. Instead of not being able to think of the word I want to use at all it comes to me after a bit. I’ve had significant lethalogica for so long I just thought it was from getting older, but maybe it’s not getting enough oxygen when I sleep that is the cause.

It’s still pretty hot or cold though. I either feel really good, or really bad. There’s no middle ground to speak of. It’s like a switch and I haven’t figured out how to tell when it’s going to flip. I’m still affected by heat to the point that I can’t be active anyplace that isn’t cool. I recover faster now, and my body will try to sweat now, but not enough to offset or overcome the heat. When I was younger I would sweat from my head when I was overheating. I mean it would literally pour down my face. It was unpleasant, but it got the job done. For whatever reason my body can’t seem to manage that anymore. It’s more like condensation now. It doesn’t cool me off right. I may be slightly dehydrated from my medication, but it’s hard to keep the balance on that.

My allergies are still destroying me, but on average I feel better than I have in a while. Just in little spurts.

Today I decided to risk going to town because I haven’t been out in a while. It was too hot, but I managed to go to Gamestop and Walmart briefly. I found the Splatoon amiibo 3 pack finally, so I got the Ika amiibo at long last without having to pay $100 for it. Of course now I have spare inklings, but since I’ll sell them for a reasonable price they won’t be around long. I’m not out to dick anyone over on them. I kept the single boxes So I can at least send them out in those.
I wanted to look at the Star Wars toys for a while but by the time I got to Walmart I was skirting the edges of safety. I had to book it to the truck and get cooled down. I doubt seriously that there’s going to be a shortage of star Wars merch for a while. Of course some collectors are just too dumb to realize the modern stuff will likely never be valuable like the classic stuff was. Scarcity doesn’t really factor in if every neckbeard in the country has a storage unit full of carded figures…
I like the look of the bad guy. He reminds me of Revan from KOTOR. The likeness on Finn, I think the name is, seems a little off. He looks like Tracy Jordan in some of the sculpts… Which is actually kind of awesome. I wish one of them looked like Liz Lemon now…


Aw, Brooksie looks so adorable in the third panel with her big ol’ eyes. And Nina looks like she should be on Themyscira.

I was lucky to get the three Splatoon Amiibos awhile back pre-owned at Gamestop. I have to say whoever turned them in is an idiot considering how hard it is to get Amiibos.

No! Somehow I’m upset because I worry that Jess and Brooksie are going to try and steal Nina away!

I guess I’m crazy…. or maybe too possessive…. Or both…..

Nina’s certainly saying “Take your best shot”.

But she’s not interested in girls, remember? There’s no better way to deal with Brooksie and Jess than head-on. It gets everything out in the open.

About Star Wars bad guy:

Kylo Ren isn’t his actual name. It’s his title. Kylo of the Knights of Ren. Just like the knights of Revan. So I assume that he’s either their version of Revan or he’s the Lieutenant of the leader of the Knights of Ren who are also in charge of the First Order. Either way, he’s going with some sort of “there is no light or dark side of the Force, there’s just the Force,” motto.

First and foremost….

Damn, Nina.

Second, Jackie, I strongly appreciate your devotion to making sure ladies in towels are portrayed accurately and realistically.

Now please, for the love of all that’s holy, do Carol in one….

Wait, no, do a pin-up series of all our lovely ladies in various towels!

Including Carol!

(I’d buy a print of this, no joke)

Re: sweat, you’re taking a bottle of water with you and maybe a washcloth to moisten your exterior/T-shirt/whatever when necessary, right? Good places to keep cool are where blood vessels run below the skin, e.g. your wrists and your ankles – using sweatbands on your wrists and keeping them moist may help. Putting my bare feet in a bucket of cold water cools me right down, but that’d be hard to pull off while driving…

I love the anime style wording in the last panel. Even the agreement from Jo like an anime sidekick agreeing with the hero. Can’t wait to see what they do with their 6’+ Barbie Doll.

Hnng… Damn, Nina, don’t sneak up on me like that. I am loving the others’ reactions, but I’m kind of disappointed we didn’t get to see Ed’s face. I do believe Peach-Nina would have broken him.

And, yes, Nikolay. Now that you’ve said it, I can’t unsee it.


And oh, yeah, Princess Peach, too, I guess.

That’s going to be hard to convert to a desktop, but I suppose Jackie is up to the challenge.

Lethologica is a pain in the neck; I’ve lived with it my entire life. It does improve a little when I get enough rest, but for the most part Toastmasters is out for me. There are a couple of different versions of it. Mine is a wiring issue, and it comes with such joys as compulsively fidgety fingers and difficulty swallowing. Yes, I have a drinking problem — literally — like Ted Striker from Airplane!

HAHA! Everyone jokes about how the Hayden Panettiere characters perma-towel stays on in “Until Dawn” while she’s being chased through a house and a mine shaft by a psycho killer and other things.

Nice to see someone care about being realistic for a change!

Did Ed get a chance to see Nina like that? I sure he would have blown a gasket. Now THAT would have been a great reaction to see.

On the note of the titles for Star Wars characters.

One method for finding one’s own is to take the last 3 letters of your last name, reverse them, tack on the model of the first car you drove, “of” the name of the last medication you took.

Mine is Hsumonaco of Naproxen.

There’s also a more complex way of find one’s Star Wars name that gives letter length variation floating around the angelfire forums

Jackie, I think you have a latent career as a towel marketeer! What a luscious (and SEXY!) sight!. I want to lick the screen.

Hey, I just noticed that Brooksie has different colored eyes. Hard to notice with blue hair covering one of them all the time. Always something new to notice.
As for the CPAP, they usually work best sleeping on your back. I took to using a wedge pillow to support my back. I’m a taller big guy with back problems and a soft bed. It took a lot of strain off my lower back. Just a thought.

Second time I’ve heard of the wedge pillow suggestion. Gods, I used to be able to sleep all night with the mask on, but then I changed my meds, and I just can’t get into the right position for the air inflating my guts to, like… properly go.

Oh no, Jess and Brooksie bith are lacking p waves on the EKG tracing. Looks like induced early onset atrial fibrillation and a lifetime of anticiagulation for them. Too bad…

Nina may not be into girls …yet … but two girls are about to be into her. Being double teamed by one rapacious bi-sexual and an eager neophyte Lesbian should be quite the experience for our leggy blonde. Will all the fun stuff happen off panel or is some NSFW action in the offing?

Jo is pansexual, and Jess is bisexual. Also, this isn’t a porno..Nina has explicitly stated she isn’t into women, and I think Jo and Jess wil respect that.
