07/22/13 The Torture Begins

Geeze-Louise, this strip makes me sad. Poor Martina. Sorry I wrote the story like a knife with you at it’s point.

So, as “A_Reader” pointed out in last Wednesday’s comments, at some point I started making the mad eebs’s togas dark (the same color as the normal eeb outfit). So, I’ve gone back to the original toga color, and when i get a chance (urk!) I’ll go back in and fix the ones in the archive (along with the ones where I drew them in jackets rather than togas). With so many details, it’s so easy to forget little things like that!

Been a productive weekend. My girlfriend was away and so I worked every day from waking until dropping off to sleep again, living off of sweet cereal and waffles like a hummingbird. I could use a nap. And a salad.

    I think Martina is finally being disabused of the notion that you can always talk it out with someone. Deep down, she’s always believed that (hell, it worked with Yuri). But there are some people who only understand a two-by-four upside the head.

    @Christopher, see if you can mix your nap with some kitty hugs. You know, the kind where you’re JUST about to fall asleep when BAM — they smash their forehead into yours, just to see if you’re still awake.

    You ARE feeding and watering your cats, aren’t you?

    After all she’s been through and it comes down to this. I don’t want to see it but I can’t turn away. Why can’t I turn away? Hope? Hope that she’ll get out of it? Is it only vain hope?

    Togas – I reckon it would be more funny to put in a couple of the Mad Eebs having a little argument between themselves – ‘Gold Togas’ – ‘Copper Togas’ – ‘Lounge Suits’ – and the rest of the eebs just ignoring them, having larger fish to fry – so to speak.

    Can we have a Paisley Toga option next?

    Hi,

    On the toga color, maybe they have not cleaned them (yuck). So, have Martina jibe them about that. They use their power as a dry cleaner, and in a cloud of dust, the color reverts. Now you dont have to fix the bug, and it becomes a feature. 😉

    Mudfoot, they’ve shown that they can ‘scan’ with their minds for hidden stuff. They’re probably paranoid enough to look for bombs. But yeah, one successful surprise or trap should be all it takes.

    @YMBM, just keep telling yourself,
    [i]A brick wall… a brick wall… I must think of a brick wall… a brick wall… I must think of a brick wall… a brick wall… brick wall… I must think of a brick wall… It’s almost half past eight… brick wall… only a few seconds more… brick wall… brick wall… brick wall… nearly over… a brick wall… [/i]

    Let’s try that again…
    @YMBM, just keep telling yourself,
    A brick wall… a brick wall… I must think of a brick wall… a brick wall… I must think of a brick wall… a brick wall… brick wall… I must think of a brick wall… It’s almost half past eight… brick wall… only a few seconds more… brick wall… brick wall… brick wall… nearly over… a brick wall…

    Hmm thus far the whole of their attention is on her now if someone were to say Blow up the whole building, That might work. Never Did see Yuri in the after shots did we?

    @Daniel, I saw bits and pieces of the movie one Friday evening at college. I remember the very last scene, where he has set his briefcase on the desk, he walked to the blackboard, and the children ask him what he’s thinking of. He’s got the image of a brick wall in his head, and it starts crumbling under the mental force of the children. Suddenly, all their heads *SNAP* around at the same instant to look at his briefcase. BOOM!

    Martina didn’t have a briefcase with her, did she? Didn’t think so…

    Telekinetic beings that can alter matter on a sub-atomar level can surely alter the color of their clothing on a whim.

    On why they all switched at the same time… maybe it’s just one Eeb doing it, while the others silently think “God Steve, just can it.”

  12. Know that has your consumers! I don’t imply your competition, I imply consumers who cater for the same clientele you do. Those are the consumers you should be networking with — not each Tom, Dick and Harry in a Chamber of Commerce mixer. Is your goal industry higher revenue child boomers? If so, what are they investing their cash on? To put it differently, whose solutions are they making use of and that has entry to them? If high-end (and ageing) boomers are your goal industry, for example, you could choose to start developing strategic alliances with beauty surgeons, rheumatologists, beauty dentists, florists, divorce lawyers, therapists, stock brokers, golf professionals, monetary planners, therapeutic massage therapists, wedding planners, and so on.
