Funny comic, in a PG-rating sort of way. So many amusing cultural references, webcomic, geeky movie, and otherwise.

Definitely need to do some laundry soon.

Had a shining moment of dvorak-clarity for a second there earlier. I was a little surprised to find that neither of my parents had ever even heard of dvorak, but in hindsight I guess I shouldn't be.

Short story idea: (seems entirely possible to me that it's already been done) a person wakes up, alone, in an empty room, and cannot get out. E at first believes that there is no outside, or at least if there were, that it would not be interesting. E later changes eir mind, and goes about trying to escape. Strenuous and lengthy effort brings this about, and e finds emself, at last, outside, in the night, still alone. E wanders around, observing the unfamiliar landscapes and plants, but discovers nothing more. E returns to the single-roomed house e escaped earlier, with a large rock, and beats emself in the head until e passes out due to shock and loss of blood, and dies.

My suspicions of already-been-doneness stem primarily from the fact that the form seems inevitable result of (a) pursing the cheap and obvious sort of humanity-as-single-person metaphor and (b) following the fucking news any time in, say, the last fifty years or so.

there's gotta be easier ways to kill yourself than beating yourself to death with a large rock.
