comics: wholesome, yet disturbing…?
I think about the only time I read the comics in the newspaper is when I visit the family for the holidays, and I just found this Family Circus strip disturbing! I’m sure it’s supposed to represent a cute little family moment, but it comes across as sounding much more like “Sweet Daddy Bear” to me.
The holidays have been ok, but I’m definitely ready to get back home and have at least a little time off to myself or with friends before I have to head back to the office. Even though there’s very little to do here but watch tv, eat or play with the dog, it’s just not as relaxing as it should be. (Yes, I totally should have installed WoW on my MacBook!) There’s just something about being away from your home turf out of obligation and not fun. This isn’t a house or area I grew up in, so at this point in my life DC is my home, not this place where my parents happen to live right now.
My mother, however, can still throw down when it comes to making a holiday meal. Just thinking about leftovers right now… I think I’ll bring this entry to a close and make a fridge raid. Season’s Eatings, y’all!
