singing the housework blues

things the tidying said to meI keep cleaning and I'm not getting anywhere. What's wrong with me? Didn't I used to be good at housework? In a wild stab at restoring glamour, I drew this week's strip with my glass pen and sandalwood-scented ink. It's watery, but so very blue.

whyyyyy do they make them so fiddly and fragile?
Every time I pick it up, shiny plastic limbs fly in every direction (and usually end up down the back of something). I'd probably go see a band called Tiny Gundam Explosion. Bet they'd have good visuals.

They walk the dangerously thin line between model and toy, fragile but oh so articulated!

I like the MS in the pocket toys, even though they are only from Victory Gundam they are all tough and stuff so I can chase the cats (Mobile Armor Mrow) with absolute impunity!

the blue is pretty. and what is 'gundam'?
i don't know what 'gundam' is but i *feel* that i do. the blue you use is so pretty and watery. and to me blue plus pink is even prettier (you did a blue and pink strip recently didn't you?). and ps i loved it last strip when you hugged the tank in the most excellent way brimming full of tank-owning-happiness. i poked my friend peter and said look look look she's hugging the tank, she loves that tank.

a Gundam is an enormous giant robot suit piloted by a troubled teenaged boys
the one I am holding is a small plastic model, they come in kit form (and come apart a lot) it was a gift oh two christmasses ago. I think it's the one that belongs to floppy-haired to floppy-haired emotionless killing machine (and babe magnet) Heero.

The pink ink is rose-scented.

I do love my tank, even if it is only imaginary.

One could also add that Gundam is one of the longest-running Japanese anime merchandising franchises ever, exceeding Star Trek for both kitsch-to-buy, and iterations.

And yes, it's definitely about the hair, all about the hair, man. :-)

J: your weekly strip is timely, following the heals of a major cleanup I perpetrated in my house ... I think the dust-bunnies are angry and seeking revenge. I'll have to be careful when I return in January. :-)
