Baby, It's Cold Outside, pt. 1

This has been a hard secret to keep, but I was able to hide it when CK arrived for the holidays. This is a special comic that follows the lyrics "Baby, it's Cold Outside", his and my favorite December song. It is also his gift. 

You may also have noticed two rabbits in the comic. Those are my two new animal companions, Bran and Teague.  

About the buns: I adopted Bran and Teague on November 15 of this year, a month after losing my first rabbit, Thistle, to a severe case of coccidia and GI Stasis. I had had him for a mere weekend before ending up in the Vet ER, had him stay there for a few days, took him home, and not four hours later, rushed his poor bloated self to the ER again only to be told he needed to be put to sleep. October had been a rough month for me.

Rest in peace, Thistle dude

A few days after his passing, I looked on PetFinder for rabbits near me and discovered Bran and Teague, then called Cinnabun and Flopsy. They were originally thought to be two girls, but after their neutering, the rescue group learned differently. I got in touch with the group, filled out their application, passed their phone interview, visited the little dudes, and the rest was history.

We spent November and part of December getting to know each other, and it's amazing how much our relationship has developed. 

Teague, the helicopter-eared curious sweetie
Bran, the shy bossy bun

LDR Monster Couple - Satyr and Mermaid

This one is more serious than the other ones, and likely my favorite concept of my LDR Monster Couple Series for Inktober. But this concludes the series, and now for our regularly scheduled kinda-sorta autobiographical comics.

Stay tuned for next week, as I'll be unveiling my well kept secret winter comic project! Also, as of today, it's one more week until CK visits for the holidays!!!!

Shower Thoughts

Some months ago, CK watched a movie on the flight back to Rome called Strange Magic. He's not the sort of person to be all for campy musical movies, but for some reason he loved it. We decided to watch it together, and I was initially iffy about it. But having watched the movie at least four times in the span of a couple months, you can say it's my go to feel-good movie. I don't know why, but it grew on me, and since then CK will break out into song, causing me to giggle profusely.

So yeah, this is entirely his fault. ;)

LDR Monster Couple - Mad Scientist and Robot

This is the second to last coupling of the Inktober LDR Monster Couple series. I know we're already in December, but hey, even jailbirds and their murderous love machines need so love too... right?

Birthday Wish

My birthday was a quiet one. I didn't really have the energy to make myself a treat, although I did go to a very fun burlesque show by myself the Friday before.

While I'm very grateful that we've been able to spend our anniversaries in person, our birthdays have been a different story. We have it better than some, who struggle to even see each other virtually, but at the same time... it's become my wish every year. Hopefully we won't have to have any more birthdays before closing the distance. Hopefully this year was the last.
