Aboot

This website is where I collect things I am interested in, because the clutter was getting overwhelming.

Things I am interested in include:

the internet, movies & teeveeshows & plays- especially funny ones where the characters occasionally address the audience, playing dodgeball, evolutionary biology, public speaking, scrabble, embarrassment, office supplies, brunch, bran, saving time, performance, chicken mcnuggets, inquisitive cats, sans serif fonts, hive minds, doodles, hypochondria, breakfast cereals, curly hair-care tips, feral children, perception, decluttering strategies, delicious things to eat, caffeine, tutorials, leftover Chinese food, indirect lighting, subtext, being nice to the environment, what happens in the emergency room, dollar stores, how to do things, how not to do things, stereotypes, exceptions, chewing gum, recycling, hacks, Barack Obama, oxford commas, and the internet.

If you’re new to this bloog, welcome. Here’s a list of my favourite posts that you may enjoy. I think the one about candied bacon is particularly noteworthy.

    Yesterday while getting a ready to give a talk about drawing comics to a room full of Sequential arts students, I overheard a girl telling her friend about how she found a cat, and took it in.

    And named it Batman.

    Apparently her roomate had a cat already, and that cat’s name was Robin, so she wanted it to match.

    But so far Robin hates Batman.

    It was quite exciting to think of it. Amazing that they were coming here, to my place of all places! By nature I am good at suppressing my emotions, so my countenance did not expose to my seven famous and infamous guests my elation, which was to the point of having me look like a cover band leader meeting the group he models.

    It is almost time; I cannot wait for them to come. I had set the dinner to be at six on the dot, though I was more than certain that O’Hair would be fashionably late. The first automobile showed up, and to my surprise it was Karl Marx and his newfound friend Francois Marie Arouet, both of them noted thinkers of their time.

    This must be the Black Hole where missing emails end up.

    Ah, now it makes more sense. I wracked my brains, I really did. But how could I have predicted that it was an actual hole in the space-time continuum?

    “About”? Oh no, I don’t think so. I’m Canadian so I’ve never heard the word “About”. I don’t think that’s even a real word, actually. Aboot. Aboot. Yup, that’s how we say it oot here.

    Hi, Nicole,

    First of all, let me say, that your blog is great!
    You have really interesting content, so you have a lot of visitors
    every day. Your visitors could probably also like the idea to play
    mini-games on your blog. How do you like the idea to post some games
    on your blog and get benefits from it (the games will be posted in
    separate category and won’t mix with general posts)? I’m offering you
    a new game base, which has united all affiliate programs and is ready
    for use! More closely info you can get here:
    Have a nice day!
