to days ride

I just caught up on Jack’s videos….
“That’s a shifty guy! He does not look like a nice person.” (Papers please, next day: Rides with Strangers)
Guess he was right.

Stay safe, Jack, the shifty guys are coming for you~

Day 81/365: The Song With Your Favorite Lyrics

Song: Ride

Artist: twenty one pilots

“‘I’d live for you,’ and that’s hard to do
Even harder to say when you know it’s not true
Even harder to write when you know that tonight
There were people back home who tried talking to you
But then you ignored them still
All these questions they’re for real like
Who would you live for?
Who would you die for?
And would you ever kill?”

When you've had a bad day riding.
  • Me:I couldn't get him to engage his hindquarters today. It's like he wasn't even paying attention, he for sure wasn't focused. I don't know what I should do next. I'll have to talk to my trainer.
  • Starbucks employee:Your aware this is the Starbucks drive thru?
  • Me:.....
  • Starbucks employee:.....
  • Me:Right, so I'll have a grande chai latte.

So, my friends hang out a lot at night, and usually around midnight we run out of things to do and the running joke is that I suggest Luna Park. This is met with annoyance that it is a long drive and too much fuel and would be shut.

But yesterday I suggested it before we went out and we figured out we would all be free today to actually go down. We rode on the train for three hours down to Sydney and spent the day on rides, and then we left. We sat at the harbour for half an hour and decided to go back and get milkshakes.

When we got to the ice cream store my friend (pictured above) was like “hey isn’t that like Ryan and Michael and Lindsay from rooster teeth” and I thought he was absolutely mucking about. But I looked over and he wasn’t. I was torn for a few seconds as to whether I should disturb them but then I thought “when the heck else am I going to casually bump into these incredible people!” so I went up and we had a chat and I was super awkward and they were super lovely and I didn’t want to disrupt them anymore so I let them go on their way.

Then when I was lining up to get a milkshake I realised we didn’t get a photo and when I met Michael and Lindsay when they first came to Australia I didn’t get a photo and I’d just missed another opportunity. But I saw them again and ran up and asked for a photo and Lindsay was like “yeah obviously I was going to suggest it but I wasn’t sure” and then the above photo happened.

I had the excitement shakes for probably half an hour after that, just so happy. Then we saw Geoff and Griffon and Milly wandering around and I was going to go say hi to them but Milly was getting fairy floss, and griffon and Geoff were kissing and I didn’t want to interrupt them as well.

I’m just so ecstatic that after missing the lazer team premiere, missing RTX, and missing the theatrical release, that on the one day my friends and I travel to Sydney is the one day they just so happen to be there in the same place.

Thank you so much @lindsayjones for taking the time to talk to me, and put up with me if I rambled a bit, and getting the photo when we had already shaken hands goodbye.


Trainee Days - Lessons in Horseback Riding.

Read from right to left!

Horses are pain in the ass to draw (seriously, I haven’t drawn them in almost 10 years). This one started out innocently but then Reiner butted in and now I can only offer you 2 comic pages and 1 bonus page that could be kind of “interesting” if presented out of this context.

Bonus here in higher resolution and without moiré!

Ticket To Ride is the next Monopoly. This train-themed board game is becoming increasingly ubiquitous on my friends’ and families’ shelves at home. It can be played by up to five people and involves each player choosing destination cards that determine the routes that they will try to complete be…
