robot green glasses

one of the best takes on the comics page, and SPIDERS!

The Comics Curmudgeon. Marvelously snarky, and wickedly funny. Check it out.

In other news, I spent most of the day helping Mom get moved into her new house. The moving van guys took care of getting the (humungous amount of) boxes and furniture into the house, but I helped with getting things to their right place (or in the garage), opening boxes to look for things, going on a run for sandwiches and drinks, and checking off things as they arrived.

I also did a big furniture clean down for spider webs and egg sacs, after the movers told us multiple horror stories about brown recluses and people they knew losing fingers and limbs and pets. Now I feel all grimy/itchy and I'm imagining spiders at every turn. Time to go take a shower!
