Santa and the Naughty Elf, Revisited

Remember Santa and the Naughty Elf from a few years ago? I thought it'd be fun to check in and see how they're doing this year. 

It's not that Gia Elf isn't happy for Santa Boyfriend, it's just that Santa Boyfriend needs to be a little more sensitive to the fact that not everyone skips a meal and loses 6 pounds.

Gia Elf is sure the cookies are unrelated to the weight loss. They're magical Christmas cookies.

She'll be a fun addition to the sleigh this year!

So Santa Boyfriend and Gia Elf tackled present delivery as a couples activity, and they both loved it. 

And they had the best Christmas ever. 

All the presents got delivered. And then Santa took a nap for 45 days. 

Merry Christmas!

Baby It's Hot Outside

So, the east coast is currently having some unseasonably warm weather. 

Therefore, I'd like to present a twist on an old holiday date rapey classic:

Baby It's Hot Outside

I really can't stay 
Baby it's warm outside
I've got to go away 
Baby it's hot out there
This evening has been so very nice
It's hot as hell, you need some ice

My kitty will start to worry 
It's too hot to pet something so furry
Kitty will be pacing the floor 
Listen to the air conditioner roar
So really I'd better scurry 
Chunky monkey, please don't hurry
Maybe just a drink or six more 
Put some netflix on while I pour

The neighbors might think 
Baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink? 
Global warming is mad out there
I wish I knew how 
you're getting sweaty now
To cool myself down 
 Don't you have a summer nightgown?

I ought to say no, no, no 
Mind if I turn the air up?
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
 What's the sense of sweating inside?
I really can't stay 
 Baby don't hold out
Ah, but it's hot outside

I've got to get home 
Oh, baby, there's no breeze out there
Say, lend me your fan 
It's a hundred degrees out there
You've really been grand 
 Sweat when you touch my hand
Why don't you see 
How can you do this thing to me?

There's bound to be talk tomorrow 
Think of my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied 
If you overheated and died
I really can't stay 
Get over that hold out
Ah, but it's warm outside
Oh, baby, it's hot outside
Oh, baby, it's hot outside

Genius, I know. Apologies for the lack of art on this one. I got my new macbook (hooray!!) but I'm having some trouble making paintbrush work and open my images properly (grumble grumble).

MacBook Shopping

My wonderful old macbook is on its last legs, so I've been looking at getting a new one.

We have the best date nights.

But the answer is no. No, I could not.

Yes bloggy friends, I'm coming to terms with investing an arm and a leg into a new laptop. 

How do you guys handle big purchases? 
If only my blobbit idea took off...

The Blobbit

I'm sure you've all heard of fitbit, apple health app, and countless other health tracker/wearable devices. Well, for those with an active lifestyle, that's great. But what about the rest of us?

May I introduce to you...the BLOBBIT!

Keep up your sedentary lifestyle with this "anti fitbit" tracker that makes sure you're not doing too much!

Just like with fitbit, use the device to track your personal activity goals 

Right? Stop #netflixshaming.

The Blobbit HRM model tracks your heart rate to make sure you keep things nice and slow. 

Yep, hard to accidentally do any cardio with the Blobbit! In fact, it even tracks your standing time.

And if you actually try to work out, Blobbit is appropriately motivating. 

Man, I'm never gonna be able to do a pull up.
The Blobbit is only available online, of course. (This market doesn't go to stores very often.) Get yours today!

Happy Thanksgiving 2015!

I have a great blog post idea, but had no time to draw it this weekend. Since thanksgiving is coming up, I'll blame it on that and re-share this masterpiece from like 2012. I know most of you have seen it before, but if you haven't, enjoy!

In 16somethingsomething, a bunch of Pilgrims came to America.

Yay, religious tolerance! How nice!

They brought supplies with them to get through the first winter in America.

They were in trouble.  But then the pilgrims met the natives.

The pilgrims didn’t really understand the native people or their ways.

The pilgrims were also kind of jerks.

Things started to look pretty bleak for the pilgrims. Until...

The native americans shared their harvest, and the pilgrims survived.

 And they were super grateful. For a solid five minutes.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
