I turned out to be a comic enthusiast. I have a good collection of so far the best comic books ever. I used to read long and thick novels then and can finish one book in a day or two. But due to my busy work before, I never had time to read and so, I felt less interest in reading novels that are lengthy and I am required to use my discerning mind to find out what will happen to the main character, or to all the significant characters in the story. And most of the time, the story ends the way I don’t really like. So that’s why I gained interest collecting good comic books (well not like spider –man or bat man or other mango comic series). I loved Archie and friends, I love the comic works of Jerry Scott and Jim Borgan (Zits), Pat Brady and Don Wimmer (Rose is Rose) Jim Davies (Garfield)), and now Lynn Johnston (For Better or For Worse).
My fascination varies accordingly. From teenage issues to married life issues to family life issues. I just finished with one book by Lynn Johnston entitled: Something Old, Something New. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind going through one more time reading it. and order online another of her comic masterpiece.
I loved how she depicted her own life story in it and I can assure that we all can relate. I have chosen a few strips that I find really hilarious and amusing and these are the ones I can totally relate.
Seriously this has happened to me. I grew up in a family surrounded with pets (cats, dogs, pigs, chicken, ducks name it.) but of course the common house pet is the cat and the dog. I had one named Ms. Amanda White when I was living alone, which I called Ms. White. She was a spoiled kitten I rescued from a ‘black market for pets. Every one of my friends loved her too. She’s crazy over playing stuff toys and running around and chasing just anything that moves. And she usually smash, drop and scratch things including me which when it happens I get so mad and I nag at her like she is one human being. Then when she starts to behave well again, I feel so guilty for being mad.
Wives out there, does this ever happen to you? It does to me . I’ve been meaning to get a new haircut but I just can’t because I am not really sure if am going to look super extra pretty if I do. And my husband just loves me in any way I look. He just can’t bear to wait a long time for me fixing my hair or my face (which he calls ‘painting the face’ when I put make-up on) when we go out.
Happens to me all the time I do the laundry. I just don’t understand where the socks go.
Ha ha ha, this made me laugh my lungs out. This scenario never happened to us yet, thanks god.
We have a strength training machine that do something like this, well it just sits in one corner, and I have a yoga mat that I RARELY use. Seriously who has the time to do it? Or I guess I am just a plain couch potato sometimes.
Ms. White used to dominate my bed, dominate my pc.
Sadly, when I left and moved to live in another country, I had to give her away. It still breaks my heart when I think about it now. I don’t want to know what happened to her in the past 2 years.
Ha ha ha. I am not good in giving gifts. I’d rather give a dollar in a packet than going to shops and crack my head thinking what’s the best gift to give my friends and family.
I am thankful that my husband likes every gift I give him. I usually get him shirts. When I travel I buy him shirts. On Special occasions I give him perfume and last Christmas I gave him 2 pens with his name (and my name- too selfish of me) engraved on it. He finds it really special. On his birthday I got him a shirt (again) and a novel.
So you see what I meant of comic enthusiast right?
