Monday was gorgeous, and I took off the middle of the day to walk along the river with my girlfriend. We packed hot rice and beans in two thermoses, and tea in another, and sat on a bench and ate lunch in the sun with trees protecting us from the chill breeze. A good afternoon.
Good days. Aside from stress. I ended up making the mint chocolate fudge (f%@ckin’ divine), if that is any baraometer. I need to find someone to play racquetball with. Hitting a ball hard is in my scope of need these days.
Christopher Hastings has a new Dr McNinja collection out, “Timefist,” I’m excited about that.
Oh. Huh. I just noticed. Haldeyis is not glowing. I will fix that tomorrow.
Regarding the current state of Dimitri, think the French said it best when they said ” 🙁 “
Ah, poor Dimitri. Now that he actually has a job everything sucks. I think he was hoping for Oohlooh to take over for him.
“We find most behavior in the galaxy rather depressing.”
Humans on the Earth–yeah, I can relate.
I can see that Dimitri is feeling the effects of the job. Its sad to see his magnificient bastard style cramped by the politics and the rough share of job he has to do. No time to immunise himself to more weapons fire or seduce more interesting alien ladies.
Hopefully he’ll hire himself some semi-dependable people to assist with things at some point, but guess we’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
He’s gone from a glass in his hand to the bottle, I’ve just noticed.
@Joal, hahah! Glad you noticed that detail. 🙂
Sad Dimitri is sad, and that makes me sad.
The shoe is on the other foot analogue now, eh Dmitri?
He needs to be briefly tickled by pistol set on ‘stun’ and perhaps assorted new girlfriends in countryside. Plural and rural.
@Carl H, which I’m sure he will do, as soon as things calm down a little…
Aw, I thought glowy barnacle chick cared about him. Guess that’s what happens when you’re a man-whore. :/
She’s totally gonna get kidnapped by the guard. They’re gonna try and wrest back control from the stupid human who messed everything up.
ahhhhhhh no don’t go
And that’s THAT relationship….
Dimitri must stop drinking Depresso, it makes him feel even worse.
@Kathleen: Why would he do that? You think he’s Rickshaw’s inside man? (Hmm… now that’s an interesting prospect. Let the wild mass guessing begin!)
@Joal: Well, those ancillary reports must be pretty depressing. I notice Shiax or Kuu-Drahc never looked this tired. I get the feeling Dimitri may be the first one in that seat who’s actually doing any work!
And hey! Haledavis isn’t glowing! (which I totally missed until you pointed it out)
I really underestimated Dimitri at the beginning of the comic, thought him to be the “comic relief/cliche ladies’ man”.
Now he is my favorite character (though Martina, Pierrot and Emily are close behind)
@Frank: It could be that it’s not work related, but due to the whole maniuplating two forces to fight each other.
Which is diplomacy! Which is exactly what the job is about!
Haldeyis’s glow. Fixed!
