Well, today, or rather the 20th when this page officially uploads, the comic is 14 years old & its creator is 44. I will retire the amazon list until the holiday season comes around. If I had started a family my theoretical children would be unruly teens now. No doubt screeching for minimum basic income, or some young person bullshit that would annoy me. The comic gives me a degree of control that a family would not. Is it a better choice? Ask me again when I’m too old to take care of myself. Although arguably I’m already at that point. XD In any case it’s an anniversary so feel free to join with me in making note of it, or indulging me by way of gifts, if you haven’t done so already. Like an e-girl there is no amount of world goods that will fill the void that is my soul, but that’s no reason for you not to try. There may be a limit I just haven’t reached yet.
I have not done this comic the way I was told I was supposed to, but I outlasted nearly everyone else I’ve known who tried. Some days I wonder if they were the unlucky ones, or if I was. But, you roll the dice & take your chances. When I started this comic I was at the lowest point in my life & by happenstance my mother happened to visit at just the right moment. I know I’ve helped people get through hard times by way of this work & that was easily the best I could ever hope for given my insufferable personality. Being useful to the world is important in whatever way you can be. Hopefully the world still has some need for me.
