PRIORITIES

Folks: apologies for the limited content. I have COVID, which should honestly give me free time to produce comics but apparently that's not how the world works.

Anyway, I'll get another vote incentive out maybe tonight maybe tomorrow morning (edit: or Monday). Thanks for your patience. Vote incentive is updated

edit: yes back in the day Donna did hang out with Chuck

Oof. Here's hoping you got the less-shitty Covid.

I'm pulling the ol' bait and switch on this goddamn bug

normal me: sleeps ~6 hrs a night

COVID me: sleeps 10+ hours


to answer your question, I've got 3 dose of the vaccine and so far it's tracking like a run-of-the-mill flu. Prior to the pandemic with these level of symptoms I'd be out mowing my lawn and running chores regardless of how shitty I felt

I'm triple vaccinated, and got a very mild case of Covid once. To the point I was only on my ass for a like day. The day before and after I chugged dayquil and powered through it.

lirvilas
hell yeah man Dayquil is the *shit*

I gotta find a way to make a non-druggie version of that stuff, I have so many positive emotions tied up in that sauce that I'd seriously take shots of it all the time if it didn't destroy my liver

(sorry to hit you with all the comments, I'm going fucking stir crazy in isolation)

2 Fists in! Not sure that's the way to look for Contraband.

Hope you're up & feeling frisky soon.

First of all: Get well soon, lirv!!

And my comment on today's comic:
The policeman doing the examination should better be wary - who knows what Dr. Ashton left in there...
lirvilas 6th Aug 2022, 8:14 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
Well, 1) this unfortunate task would fall on a policewoman; 2) Dr. Ashton likes to install her “upgrades” outside the GI tract due to heightened risk of complications; 3) thanks, I will try

You have my sympathies.
I was only double-vaxed when The Cove hit me and it thoroughly kicked my ass with a Rugby cleat!

Comic-wise: Nice call-back!
Maybe Mike shouldn't be the one to watch his daughter get cavity-searched!
But then, with the smorgasbord of different flavors of daddy-daughter issues present in this comic, maybe that tracks.
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 5:49 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
-yeah, I think I got the nerf'd version of COVID, thank goodness
-you can call it a call-back, but I was running on fumes yesterday. Also: who doesn't fucking validate parking?
-daddy-daughter appears to be an unfortunately recurring theme here... much like Disney

thanks man, I'm healing quick

or so my massively unkept lawn tells me... can't stay sick gotta do some chores

My condolences on your Covid. It sucks when you do all the right things and still catch it. Try to feel better.

Does Kerri know her dad is watching?
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
eh, sometime when we're not all freaking out I'll tell you about my circumstances, let's just say I've been in the casino for a good long while before I rolled double zeros

Kerri has got a lot of issues--none of which anyone should care about--but they're about to become Donna's issues

You mean Jo's issues...
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 8:24 PM edit delete reply

"SIG" must fucking stand for "Spoilers Is Good"

but yeah, there's a pretty high chance that Donna "delegates" this problem shortly

I mean, wouldn't you?

Oh my, hope you feel better soon, Lirv!

Damn COVID.
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
yeah, you can gage my health by the number of comments I jam out, so it's getting better quickly

I do not recommend COVID for others, now I'm worried about my family getting ill off me

With the vaccinations, I am quite optimistic you'll get well through this, even as unpleasant as it is.
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 5:53 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
yeah, 3x shots plus the nerf'd version of COVID made this unhappy but nowhere near life threatening
Nunya 7th Aug 2022, 7:26 AM edit delete reply
I hope you start feeling better soon. I had a very mild case of the Chinese lung rot last year. I wouldn't have known it was anything but a mild chest cold without my wife insisting I go get checked. And with that, I got stuffed into quarantine for two weeks so I wouldn't pass it along to others in the clan.

As far as Mike being an observer is concerned, I'd be more worried if he didn't peek in. We're in Anvil Flats after all and those pesky 'norms' are not too finely observed. Hell, at one point, I was thoroughly convinced Naomi was plotting a threesome with Donna and Don.

Re: Incentive. Not to be too much of a nag, will this be the four accident bikini barista you said you could imagine but didn't have time to draw back in mid-July?
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 5:55 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
man o man nagging on a sick guy to make you art? damn dude, that's callous as hell

(check out the vote incentive; probably not the last car crash I draw, either)

also Naomi was absolutely plotting that, because she's fucked up like that

Get well soon. Drink plenty (of water, not martinis)

yeah I'm hydrating with Pedialite or whatever it's called, and it seems to be working pretty well

Ooh, the rubber glove, she doesn't seem all that distraught to see it XD

Hope your feeling better soon, man,

One hopes that it's a mild case, like mine several months past my first booster - three days of mild hay fever and slight increase of shortness of breath (the Pacific Coast wildfires did more to me, much more.) I suspect that if it hadn't been for those three jabs I'd be posting today from my grave.
lirvilas 7th Aug 2022, 5:58 PM edit delete reply
lirvilas
yeah I don't have a bunch of the risk factors, but I am quite sure that getting that third shot in November tamped down the effect of this, as compared to one of my coworkers, who said he was almost unable to move for a day

anyway BOHICA ha ha ha I've heard the term before, never looked it up though
