I love comics. Yeah, yeah, closet geek, I suppose, but I'm always reading one of my three favorites: Doonesbury, Calvin and Hobbes and FoxTrot.
I had included some strips for your viewing pleasure but a lot of them were too small and couldnt be seen properly. I'll write it out underneath. Because you care of course!
I'm just trying to forget the Arctic Monkeys dream I had last night that teased me with it's unrealisticness.

Duke: Honey? We're on our way home! Get dinner started!
Honey (his servant): How was your outing, sir?
Duke: Big success...the kids okay, hes turning into quite the little man!
Earl, his nine-year-old son (driving): Dad, which one is the stop pedal?
Duke: Experiment! I won't always be around to show you...

Calvin's test: 1. When did the Pilgrims land at Plymouth Rock?
Calvin's response: 1620. As you can see I've memorized this utterly useless fact long enough to pass a test question. I now intend to forget it forever. You've taught me nothing except how to cynically manipulate the system. Congratulations.
Calvin: They say the satisfaction of teaching makes up for the lousy pay.
Jason: Okay, I'll shout all the imperial lines and you can shout out all the rebellion ones.
Marcus: Why do I always get stuck with the rebellion?
Jason: Hey, it's not my fault I sound exactly like Darth Vader.
Peter: Where are you two geeks off to dressed like that?
Jason: We're going to the movies. The weather's kinda lousy, so we thought it'd be a good day to see all three of the special edition "Star Wars" films back-to-back-to-back. You know, sort of as an edurance test to prove our devotion.
Marcus: No Johnny-come-lately fans are we.
Peter: That'll take what? Six hours?
Jason: No, no - you misunderstand. We're going to see the entire trilogy back-to-back-to-back. We're talking 18 glorious hours, not including breaks and previews.
Marcus: We'll eat sweet tarts to keep our energy level up.
Jason: That contorted expression on my brother's face...do you suppose it was jealousy?
Marcus: I'll bet it was. Let's go back and invite him.

This post would've been so much less pathetic had the pictures come out properly.
