A bit of another quiet week. One of those weeks where you spend the whole week working extra hard to catch up and don’t. But I got an okay amount done, and it was Writer’s Group this week, so I it was fun hanging out with them. The weekend was spent, one day having fun and walking around and enjoying the season, the other day doing housework.

    “…bored with your empty threats and I thought I’d help you out with some baby steps.”

    E M I L Y ! Don’t *ever* change! Ellzbir has no idea that Emily spits out the bones of tougher guys than him for breakfast every morning!

    “…bored with your empty threats and I thought I’d help you out with some baby steps.”
    What Corpore Metal said!

    The twisted paths of memory…
    While I’ll still risk writing poetry, writing song lyrics is right out for me.

    FWIW: My daughter is working her way through my book collection. Right now she’s in the middle of “Count Zero” by William Gibson, which has a line that is very apropos to this strip, when considering Ellzbir’s threats: “The truly dangerous man does not NEED to look dangerous.”
