It means “ijo unpa”, “sex stuff” in toki pona. Christopher Baldwin February 17, 2023 at 11:34 am 7 months ago I just now looked that up (I’d never heard of Toki Pona), and huh, yeah. I suppose it is. Sadly, I only intended it as a VERY simple Celtic knot work design. russell February 17, 2023 at 3:01 pm 7 months ago Oddly, that fits her personality. Scarlet Manuka February 22, 2023 at 1:57 am 7 months ago Or maybe “sex object”? p0indexterous February 17, 2023 at 11:30 am 7 months ago Grammer police: Panel one; “What‘s next(?) p0indexterous February 17, 2023 at 11:32 am 7 months ago Dammit!! I forgot to close the quote. I hear the sirens in the distance. Hans February 17, 2023 at 5:21 pm 7 months ago @p0indexterous – GrammEr ???? Should be ‘grammar’ and the mice police will find you soon. You seem to be a spammer And might live behind the Moon. Had to make the joke. Just to poke… p0indexterous February 18, 2023 at 9:54 pm 7 months ago Ah crap…. Now the spelling cops are onto me now! Spanner, not spammer, gumming up the works! Grammar, grammar, grammar… Leave me alone!! More sirens… Gotta hide… Damn mice! Christopher Baldwin February 17, 2023 at 11:36 am 7 months ago @p0indexterous, I see your point, but I think I’m going to leave it (for now?). I didn’t intend it to be short for “What is happening next,” but rather, “what are we going to do next.” I’ve heard (and use) both. But I’ll ponder the suggestion. Maybe as it is now, it’s too clumsy/unclear. Nomi February 17, 2023 at 12:52 pm 7 months ago “What next?” is fine. It’s an idiom analogous to “What now?” Efogoto February 17, 2023 at 4:19 pm 7 months ago +1 Hans February 17, 2023 at 5:17 pm 7 months ago The dictionary says: what next (also: whatever next) used to express surprise or amazement: ‘Blunt instruments! Murder! Whatever next?’. ++1 I will enjoy a Slipping a Mickey again and raise my glass in a toast to C.B.’s excellent lettering … p0indexterous February 18, 2023 at 9:59 pm 7 months ago Now that I’m sober, “What next?” sounds fine. I’m not ever gonna drink Wild Turkey and eat cbd gummies at the same time. I Swear it! Meran February 20, 2023 at 4:31 am 7 months ago I want to come visit you now 😀 Hans February 17, 2023 at 5:07 pm 7 months ago What next? No strip with a Strib? What a cliffhanger – we all will die from anxiety. Happy last words of love and friendship before an unavoidable sad encounter. Until then the distorted picture of Strangor being displayed on the globe screen is a very nice graphical and/or technical detail. Well done. M.A. February 17, 2023 at 5:53 pm 7 months ago No journal comic today? Christopher Baldwin February 17, 2023 at 6:23 pm 7 months ago @M.A., I don’t think I’ve done it on any schedule since I started it up again this autumn, but maybe have had some land on Friday (maybe more than I realized?). Anyhow, I’ve been sick all week, so haven’t gotten much work done, NOR has very much happened. I’ll probably do one early next week. 🙂 M.A. February 18, 2023 at 8:01 pm 7 months ago My computer went belly up a month ago, taking all my (5000+) bookmarks with it. As I regain connections I’m trying to put them in some sort of order. Spacetrawler is in with the MWF batch, and the journal comic wound up there so I started checking for it on Fridays because I believe everything I tell myself (tip: try not to do that). I need to start a “Misc. sometimes” category… russell February 19, 2023 at 11:19 pm 7 months ago If you don’t have a backup, you don’t own the data. You are only renting it from Fate. karenth February 20, 2023 at 9:53 am 7 months ago I should very much like to quote this ad nauseum to folx! 1001 February 20, 2023 at 2:56 pm 7 months ago Hey Christopher, just read you were (are?) sick. Get well soon! Jude February 20, 2023 at 7:27 pm 7 months ago Yeah, for Christopher to miss a posting is highly unusual. He’s often posted when he’s been sick before so I REALLY hope he’s not extremely sick or ill with anything serious. Just that he feels poorly (which is still no fun but not something to worry over). Hope you get better soon and I’m not say that because I want the comic. Honestly! 😀 Christopher Baldwin February 20, 2023 at 7:33 pm 7 months ago @Jude, not extremely sick! It’s just still… lingering. And this run of the journal comic (since I started it up again in the autumn) has been based on how much is happening, and not on a schedule (I truly didn’t want more pressure in my life). When I first arrived here I sometimes posted a few per week because there was so much new I was experiencing. But I have done pretty much nothing for the last week except get the minimal amount done of work I needed to, and sat around watching “Laid-Back Camp.” 🙂 Christopher Baldwin February 20, 2023 at 8:11 pm 7 months ago @Jude, ahhhhhhh! I just noticed today’s strip didn’t post. THAT’S what you were referring to. Sorry! Saved it incorrectly, so it didn’t auto-update. But it’s up now! Pete Rogan February 17, 2023 at 10:35 pm 7 months ago The better part of valor really IS discretion, and it doesn’t have to be singular. Even Falstaff had friends he could rely on. You mean all this time Ciara’s been wearing an EMOJI? I’m faintly amused. But only faintly. For the image-besotten: Laugh, tongue out, throw TV through window, slam bathroom door. There.
