Why I'm switching it up

This was going to be a comment but the pictures were big.

I didn’t want to resize them and to avoid controversy I wrote my own diary!

Kind of an ego trip if you ask me.


But the pictures look so awesome this big.

That’s just how I roll.

For those interested.

I’m a big Bill Watterson fan.…

For those who know (or don’t) he was very protective of his strip.

Watterson battled against pressure from publishers to merchandise his work, something he felt would cheapen his comic.[12] He refused to merchandise his creations on the grounds that displaying Calvin and Hobbes images on commercially sold mugs, stickers, and T-shirts would devalue the characters and their personalities.[13]

Calvin and Hobbes has been one of the biggest influences in my life. I was in the 3rd grade when I first read the strip. For a brief moment there I was Calvin’s age. So I could join him on those adventures and create my own. I learned a lot and it helped shape my opinions at a very young age.




While I may be violating the same principle by posting these pics I’ll delete them later. But I just think that he would not approve. Heh. So even if it seems like a minor thing it means a lot to me.

  1. Just finished, sitting in the VIP room with my hosts (very posh, but of course I deserve it) eating neat little box lunches.

    I love doing this stuff! I am such a shameless ham…

    If your new name ends up being tony bagels, I don’t know what I’ll do!!!!11!!!

    At a minimum, I’ll settle for womp rat, but not a mafia sounding donut shaped treat, (although I do love both bagels and Italians).

    I voted for spiffy.

    I like the sound of ‘spiffy rat.’  That makes me think of a well dressed rodent getting ready for a night on the town, all gussied up in bow tie, tails and walking stick.

    Most of the moose who entertain the lurker moose voted for spiffy.

    It seems the lurkers are big on la cosa nostra.
