chalkboard folly

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

You know the sound of nails on a chalkboard doesn’t bother me in the slightest.  For many, it’s pure torture.  What sends me into a cringe-a-thon is squeezing a brillo pad.  Ugh!  For my mom, it’s biting anything wooden.  As a kid, it would fill me with glee to chomp on a popsicle stick in front of my Mom.  Ah, sweet power!

Hey, it’s the fiftieth strip!  hooOooo!  That might not sound like much but in the webcomic world it’s a bit of an accomplishment.  I’m happy I’ve managed to get here without missing an update.  That being said, a week off is tempting.  Don’t be surprised if you see a guest strip next week from one of my favorite comickers.  I have a friend in town this week plus I feel like I’m getting sick, so it might be the perfect time to take a tiny break.  We shall see.
Anyway, thanks for reading!  Have a great week.

    The nails on a chalkboard thing always effects me most if i’m the one doing it. Which is odd since it’s supposed to be the other way around. lol.

    Congratulations on #50 though! That’s great, and i’ll be happy to read many, many more to come 🙂

    it’s late though, so haiku to come later. cause well, i don’t want to think one up right now.

    Congrats on the 50th Calan! You are truly special. Luff your comic.

    There are a few people that grate on me like chalkboard scratches. That makes me sound President bad, I know, but Bush it’s something Bob I have no control Barker over. Occasionally I Britney am embarrassed Spears by this.

    Calan has published 50 comics? I remember when she started. I must be getting old. 🙁

    Happy 50th comic!

    Party hats and jelly for all!

  7. Chris Says:

    Yay 50 comics! That is so awesome. 🙂

    I really like the new shirt with the ring of skulls. It’s kinda like GD is doing a magic trick and conjuring them out of thin air.

  8. calan Says:

    thanks all. glad you like the shirt Chris. 🙂

    now if you’ll excuse me i need to fetch the smelling salts for Seraphine. I think she got a bad piece of spam or something. 😛

    Huzzah for 50 comics 🙂 Nails on a chalkboard are pretty bad but it seems I share a trait with Calan’s mother because I absolutely hate biting into wooden things.

  11. calan Says:

    oooh, it’s Karen from Planet Karen, yay! Thanks for the haiku! 🙂

    Starguy, i’m not familiar with many people who have the aversion to wood biting thing. I wonder if it’s common.

    Doesn’t anyone share my brillo/steel wool hatred? sniff.

    Calan! Congrats on fifty strips! Sorry about not posting more on here, but there’s day’s where all the comments are poetry, and… Yeah, I just don’t throw my hat into that ring.

    Brillo’s are fine, steel wool is not a pleasant thing.

  13. Zef Says:

    okay, i said i’d post a haiku later… so here it is!

    Nails scratch across board
    Screeching causing suffering
    Please just make it stop

  14. Seraphine Says:

    Zef, I *love* your haiku! It was worth waiting for.

    Calan, I don’t hate steel wool or brillo, per se, but when it gets rusty, it makes my skin crawl to even look at i, much less touch it. Ewww.

  15. Seraphine Says:

    I left out the “t” in “it” shhhh.
