I exit my room. I’m confronted with shadows and darkness all around. In the distance, Frasier echoes on the glowing TV.
Alert, apprehensive, I crouch slightly.
Something stirs at the end of the hall. It’s approaching.
I’ve seen this thing before. In fact, I’m pretty sure I live with it.
Roommate #1 takes a step forward and stops. I peer up in his direction from my lower vantage point. A slow hiss subconsciously escapes from my mouth.
My opponent reacts; It’s a hesitant move, but he sidesteps forward and claws the air. I mirror his bluff. He retreats instantly!
Emboldened, I crackle and attack. A fatal move!
My elongated body proves no match for someone with a slightly lower center of gravity. Defeated, I crash into the plastic garbage bin of shame.

But… I feel fin…. *zip!* *slam!* *flush!*
Ah, to be back in the day where computer games were more about content and less about shiny graphics!
Or in this case, none of the above.
…Let’s go exploring!
A huge influence on my life, I came across this and had to share. ALL Calvin & Hobbes comics, available online, copyright scandal TBA…
Now with lipflaps so you don’t fall off!
For those of us that simply can’t stand those narrow-assed (literally) porcelain thrones. It’s.. the Great John. The best is the happy couple that happily look like they’ve just taken a massive dump.
My patented two-finger poke method doesn’t seem to work that well
It’s been a looong time since I actually played a typing game, and I was never into those Mavis Beacon (now on verson 15.0!) programs. But it’s still knida fun to see how far you can go!
[edit: forgot to include this one in the original post!]
Disco Stu.. will never leave the building
My favorite for last. What do you do when you find this in your building elevator?
Answer: Logically and simply (and hilariously!), take the stairs!
