I love cold weather. It's awesome, because you get to wear warm baggy clothes and drink hot chocolate.
Also awesome are giant chocolate freckles. Yummm...

My friend has four cats. Being cats, chasing string is an important part of their lives. So when she's working around the house, she'll tie a piece of twine to her belt loop for them to chase. That is my favorite piece of information.

I did that all the time when I got them off.

Also, when I got them off, my orthodontist gave me a bag of pretty much everything I couldn't have with braces. Awesome gesture.

I do keep running my tongue over them :P even with a retainer in!

Cynical Idealist, I wish my orthodontist was more like yours! He's probably a really nice guy, but all I'm ever going to remember him for is causing me pain. Still, brushing my teeth is kinda fun now :)

The Spanish lady who came into the shop I work at today was awesome. First of all, she was tiny and ridiculously cute, and she spoke slightly broken English with a lovely accent. Then, as I was helping her, she turns to me and says "You have the most beautiful eyes". Finally, as I'm saying goodbye, she smiles, and says "God bless you." (Not wanting to turn this into a religious debate here. She said it in a cute way.)

She was possibly one of the most awesome customers I've had.

Digimon.

It's an underrated show, mostly because there are some really loud and ignorant people who keep spreading the lie that it was a rip-off of Pokemon.

I love it nonetheless. //_^
Significantly less weird than I used to be. Still pretty weird.

Randall,

I received a copy of xkcd volume 0 for Christmas. I sat down with it today intending to flip through the comics when I felt compelled to actually read the introduction. I just wanted to say that your story resonated with me.

I am a software engineer. I work at a small company that makes a student management system for K-12 schools in NY state. My employer and (most of) my coworkers are nice to me, I am satisfied with my salary and benefits but I'm just not happy there.

Over the past few years my friends and family have commented on my natural talent for voices and impressions. I'm planning to take some voice acting classes in the spring and maybe someday make leave this software gig behind me.

Anyway, just wanted to say your story about leaving NASA to author a webcomic made me smile and also made me feel a little less weird about someday leaving [anonymous software company] to do cartoon voices.

Love the comics!

- Ray

I, and most of this city, are needing to post in this thread. The World Junior Hockey Championships were hosted here this year. We just won probably the critical game - really, almost certainly the critical game. In one of the best-played, most awesome, totally intense games I've seen in a long time! Tonight shall be a night of drunken revelling! This needs more exclamation marks!!
