Nada

It’s been an emotionally exhausting week. I’ve spent several nights over at our friend’s house since her husband died on Monday, and even trying to comprehend the emotions that she’s going through and the massive shift that her life has undergone is a monumental task. And then I feel bad for somehow being exhausted when nothing’s happened to me. Nothing’s changed my life forever. No tragedy has struck my family.

Anyways, I don’t have much to say – I’ve been going to bed early and falling asleep at my desk quite a bit, so my creativity has been shot. Why don’t you act as my muses?

Ask me any question in the comments. I’ll take a day next week and answer them. Nothing is off limits.

    Apparenly only covers the pics for some… Page looks fine to me.

    Exhaustion is not mutually exclusive to those who have direct tragedy strike. Death sucks all the time, for everyone left to pick up the pieces. There’s no shame in that. It’s a huge fuckall for anyone involved. Pain is measured in degrees of sucking hole, rather than temperature. Those who are not so deep feel very deeply for those who are. I’m sorry that you and your friends are anywhere near the hole.

    That being said, falling asleep at your desk can make for some rather amusing spit dribbles, no?

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Yes it is exhausting. A few years ago a friend of mine lost her husband but it hit me like a ton of bricks. One of MY friends lost her husband. Like, my age. It really got to me, and like you said, it didn’t happen to me but it was still a blow. Hang in there.

    Sheesh. That’s horrible, tragic, and just plain sucks. My thoughts are with the fam and friends of Chris.

    Okay, question. When potty-training a boy, what do I teach him to do with his weenie? Do you shake it? Flick it? Dab it with toilet paper?! I’m so confused here. I don’t want to screw him up.
    Also, is calling it a “weenie” potentially messing him up too?!

    Adam, I’m sorry you have to go through this, and it sucks that you feel bad forbeing exhausted. Don’t.

    Question: If you had to pick a new blog wife because Britt had a torrid blog affair with Father Muskrat, whose hand would you take in blogtrimony?

    I am so sorry. Life must be in a warp for you. I send good thoughts. I can’t imagine what the wife is going through- I see the photo of them all and want to weep. You seem to be someone who will be a good source of comfort to those you love. Take care. xo

    Why does your template not remember my e-mail address from my home PC using Firefox when everyone else’s is fine? 2nd question – why don’t you get rid of that sodding twitter Follow me thingy that makes me scroll up and down so I can read the text it covers?

  7. Hilly

    What was your nickname in high school and why?
    Also, what is the craziest thing you would do for a Klondike bar (in a world where “Klondike Bar” means “thing you want most in this world, like Michael J. Fox’s semen or whatever”)?

    There is one picture on your sidebar that you could explain for me. It looks like something or other is on your chest and you may or may not have any arms. What is going on with that pic? It eludes me.

    It’s the eighth one down from the top, if that helps at all.

      @B.E. Earl,
      I can’t stop staring at that photo. It looks like a woven basket of some sort. Avitable, was that your minor in college? Underwater basket weaving? Maybe that’s it? And, maybe you lost your hand in that photo to some horrific accident underwater involving a knitting needle?

    If you were turned into a lesbian by a magical unicorn, and the only other lesbians in the world were Rosie O’Donell and Ellen Degeneres, who would you make sweet love to? (Your hand is not an option)

    Will the world really end in 2012? If so, will it be aliens, humans or nature that takes us out?

    How many licks does it REALLY take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?

    That’s incredibly sad. In Portland, OR, they put up bicycles covered with ribbons and flowers (I don’t remember if they use real bicycles and paint them all the same color-white- or if they were statues of some sort… I think the former) where bicyclists have been killed. It reminds drivers to be more careful and aware, and I hear has helped curb vehicle/bicycle deaths. I think every city should do this, or something like it.

    Where’s your favorite place to get lunch in town (let’s say Altamonte over Maitland), and how do you feel about meeting random non-famous bloggers (outside of Halloween) who only know where you live because of a return address on a picture of a large box posted in a really cool Canadian chick’s blog?

  12. Sandi

    If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

    What would you pick for your last meal if you were on death row?

    If you had your own tv talk show who would you pick to be your first guest and what would you like to ask them about?

  13. Nadine

    Well, Adam, you asked for it…
    What do you believe happens after death?
    On a completely unrelated note, I adore your blog, your cartoons and the love that you have for your friends. Your blog makes me say “Aack!” as much as it makes me laugh out loud.
    Thank you, just thank you.
    Nadine

    When are you going to finally admit that you feel intellectually and, let’s face it, generally inferior to me? I just want to know, so I can prepare myself in advance… humility doesn’t come easy and I’m going to need a few days to practice.
