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.

tiny gundam explosion... that is my life (and a not half bad band name)

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.

Re: whyyyyy do they make them so fiddly and fragile?
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!

Hmm yes, glamorously clear and blue. Good of you to spare us the true vileness of your filth >;P "Ineffectual pokey poke", ain't it da troot.

the feeeeeeeeeelth will return
when I'm less high on cleaning fluids.

in the meantime I'm relying on you to be extra specially filthy to compensate (hohoho)

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. :-)

Input 'gundam' into Google ... GOOGLE KNOWS ALL! ;-)
