– Back from vacation. Taking a week off was interesting. I got quite a bit done, but none of it was particularly relaxing. I’ll relax when I’m dead, I guess. I saw some movies with friends (Mad Max was fantastic, Tomorrowland was not what I hoped), saw my family for my birthday (Kate made me peanut butter brownies. Will did steaks), played some board game sand did a little late night drinking (which for me is like breakfast drinking, but when someone says “hey, do you wanna get a drink?” at midnight it’s hard to explain that you haven’t had breakfast yet).
I spent most of my time off working, which is pretty much my favorite thing to do anyway. I did some writing for the next Ghost Kiss story, some drawing for my next Asami loves Korra comic and a lot of work on the Magical Land of Yeld project. But mostly I worked out what I’ll be doing with the rest of this season of Modest Medusa. “Medusa goes to school” was never the whole plan, but I realized about a month ago that I was having trouble imagining how I was going to get the story from where it is to where I want it to be by the end of the season. A week off helped me figure it all out!

it’s true :c
no one wants to see “hella rad sheep drawing skillz” on a resume
Nobody but the marketing department of Xtreeme Wool Sweaters Ltd.
That asteroid is on a collision course with the earth and our only hope of deflecting it is with a picture of a sheep listing all the Pokemon!
But, seriously, asking the new kid how her first day of school was when you know she got detention is breaking the jerk rule.
Hey! There are like over 700 of those pokemon. Knowing them all aint easy. It also means she can read and count to over 700, understand the semi complex rock, paper, scissors battle mechanics, and understand and solve simple logic puzzles. Unless she has Jake do all those boring parts.
I doubt she knows all of them. She probably only knows 30 or 40. I imagine she just wanders around the starting area fighting the same dozen pokemon over and over and not even realizing that she can move on. Or maybe she made it to the first gym? Who knows?
But what’s a “pokmon”? 😀
It’s called artistic license. All the great writers use it 🙂
Funny thing is if she replaces pokemon with whatever the Kardasians are doing and minecraft with cat videos she’ll be like 95% of 20-25 yr olds. On a side note somehow my phone using my number just called me… turns out it was a telemarketer using my number. Sounds illegal to me.
I hate that. That’s the worst. It always freaks me out.
Knowing all the Pokemons > Bachelor of Arts degree
I can attest to that. My degree isn’t helping me at all.
The drawing sheep things gotta count for something in art class at least.
Either you typod or your font doesn’t have a é
Oh yeah, just make yourself sound right because you say anything that contradicts your point doesn’t count.
That kid has a future in politics, I tell ya.
If not the omnipresent Jake, then who indeed?
I bet she watches the Yogscast. She probably shouldn’t, but something tells me she does.
I think all kids do.
Ms. Booth: Now, take a sheet of white paper each… …now I want you each to draw a farm animal…
Modest: Yes! – I mean: yes, Miss! :-}
Modest: … um, Ms. Booth? I need four more sheets for my hair. And another for myself because my hair ate the first one.
Heh, and it’s, “Ms. Booth isn’t THAT mean,” not, “Ms. Booth isn’t mean.”
Why doesn’t she learn magic instead of going to school ? You know, like her mom did.
Personally if I had access to something like Yield, I would do a career change to wizard ASAP.
I would say at Modest’s age those things *do* count—especially to other Kindergartners. 🙂
I get your little prince reference there 😉
It does too count!
