    Unexpected Things Babies Like

    I completely expected for them to like power points, grabbing the cat’s tail and throwing themselves from heights. I knew about those things. Following a crawling baby around stopping her from repeatedly headbutting every solid object she came across was not something I expected to be doing at all, let alone often.

    Double Standards

    It’s okay everyone, I’m in therapy, therefore this can be read as socially-acceptable self-deprecating snippet of entertainment and not a poor attempt to muffle the scream for constant validation that bubbles up inside me in ever smaller intervals that I am slowly becoming aware will never, ever be sated.

  • Cats (pattern)

    Cats (pattern)

    This isn’t a comic or story. I’ve used my Lu Repeating pattern skills (reminder that I have a pattern persona called Lu Repeating) to make a new cat pattern of Silence Killed the Dinosaurs style cats. For fun.

  • Glasses

    Lifechanging. (For real though, I love my glasses and if you have only slightly dodgy vision and are on the fence on whether you should bother with glasses the answer is, yes, you should bother with glasses. I sat on that fence for years and with corrected 20/20 hindsight, it was really, really silly of me).

    True story. Unrelated, I will not be accepting critiques of this comic at this time.

  • Baby Practice

    Baby Practice

    I mean, not right away, but when the crawling starts.

  • Small Earthquake

    Small Earthquake

    HUGE NEWS! We had a small earthquake on Sunday. A small earthquake is actually a big deal in Australia because overall we’re pretty geologically stable and we don’t get earthquakes that often, let alone feel at risk of one actually breaking stuff…
