This was the first time in months that I had a Saturday off from work, so I was planning for an awesome weekend. Everything started off great on Friday, when I met some friends at Max Brenner (a chocolate themed restaurant that is just oh so good), but since then everything has kind of been a bummer.
Kotaku was hosting another contest for a gaming comic to join their Sunday Comics lineup, and since Corpse Run was nominated quite a few times in their comments section, I figured I’d be in the hunt. Saturday morning I happened by the site and found that I wasn’t in the running… really kinda took the wind out of my sails. Apparently, they had a rule about vertical strips not getting heavy consideration, and since CR is a North-South operation, I was kind out of the running from the start.
That said, it seems like a bunch of the officially nominated strips occasionally have vertical comics, so… I dunno. I was really glad, however, to see in the comments section for the voting poll that people were supporting my little strip, and that made me feel really great. So, if you happen to be one of those guys, thanks for the effort, I can’t tell you how much it meant to me.
Finally, the weekend was capped off with a tremendously awful performance by the Jets, which, if you’ve been with the strip for a while, really has a negative effect of my mood.
Anyways, I tried to bring myself to play some New Vegas, and after having an incredibly satisfying beatdown of Benny, I looted his suit, which does in fact give you +5 to speech (and barter). For anyone who knows how awkward I am in person, I think we’d all agree that no amount of spiffy clothing could make me suave.
Then again, maybe that’s a good thing; I certainly wouldn’t want old men bearing it all at the store.
