  1. You have the answers! You figured it out! I’ll follow into the pits of hell, qrparker! But first let me go to the bathroom, play Candy Crush, get my nails done and wash my car. 🙂

    • Well, Allie’s depiction of herself is female, blonde, and wears pink. My depiction of myself is male, brown-haired, and wears purple. So I’m basically the opposite. I should call it Understatement and a Whole.

      • True, though I’m not convinced that purple is the opposite of pink. Pink is just purple going through an experimental phase – dabbling in frequencies on the other side of the visible spectrum.

  2. You have a great sense of humor and I love your drawings! I’m so glad I saw your blog. P.S. Thanks for liking my post about Orson Scott Card. I didn’t think anybody would see it. haha

    • Glad you like it! I’m really torn about Mr. Card. Even though Ender’s game and Speaker for the Dead have little to do with sexuality, reading their overall humanist message helped shape me into the kind of person who would be accepting of others. To find out the author is not only open, but proud of his homophobia was shocking and disheartening.

  3. Thanks for liking my post, don’t know how you found it but I’m glad you did! Your quirky humor is really cool. I’m soooo curious about your “Restricted Section”, what the heck is that about? Did you put it there to frustrate me? If so, well done!

  4. Hi, I just found your comment on my blog from April, I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reply (I appreciate the comments I get, just sometimes don’t know what to say in reply!)! Your blog is great, love the illustrations, you certainly do have an awesome sense of humour! 🙂

    I’ve been deaf since I was 6 (I’m 29 now), possibly longer as it just wasn’t diagnosed until then. My younger sister is also deaf (her blog is http://starsandrainbows.wordpress.com), so I guess although I’m the oldest, I had someone who understood what it was like in our family. I was a well-adjusted kid, had lots of support and encouragement from my parents. I’ve worn hearing aids since I was young too, I didn’t like them much when I was younger but wore them far more when I was a teen and now when I’m an adult.

    I suppose I’m well balanced and have accepted myself, I know it’s different when it just happens out of the blue, I know a few people who have just suddenly lost their hearing when adults. It’s much harder, I know. If you want to talk, my email is catsandchocolateblog@gmail.com – I’m also the editor (of the website) of an international organisation for deaf and hoh people called Deaf Unity (http://deafunity.org) if that interests you (you might find the articles and interviews section interesting)! I can find more info or put you in contact with different people. Just let me know 🙂

    I do think about being deaf because it affects my access to things, when access isn’t freely available, ‘out there’ – for example subtitles, captioning and stuff has to be arranged if it isn’t automatically provided. In the UK there’s Stagetext for the theatre and sometimes subtitled showings of films, listed on yourlocalcinema.com. Although I do know a certain amount of BSL (British Sign Language) it’s not my first language so I don’t use that to access things mostly. It’s a pain for things like going to the cinema, announcements on public transport, going to conferences, stuff like that that hearing people don’t really need to think about. So life is different for deaf and HOH (hard of hearing) people.

    I hope this has helped a bit 🙂

    • Thank you so much. I’m now following both your and your sister’s blogs. I don’t know anything for sure right now, but this has been really weighing on my mind. I really appreciate the time you took to make such a thoughtful response, and its good to know that if worst comes to worst, there are deaf people out there living interesting and fulfilling lives. I get the feeling I probably will email you at some point, so please be on the lookout for that.

  6. Thank you for following my blog. I highly enjoy your sketches, and the fervor that you display in your “5 great books you should read but haven’t.” I am currently engrossed in “The Name of the Wind and couldn’t agree more with you! I look forward to following you.

  7. What an awesome way to make your “about” page. I love the way you say that posting after midnight is still Thursday as long as you haven’t slept. I have the same way of thinking, only I hadn’t ever put it in writing. Besides, in the time zone behind you, it would still be Thursday 🙂 Cheers!

  8. This is probably the most exciting about page I’ve ever read. =3 I’m intrigued and have lots of time on my hands…

    Also thank you for reading. ^^

  9. Spent last Friday afternoon reading your blog from end to start, all the way to Jesus Bros. (So that wasn’t a very productive Friday at work, obviously). Excellent blog, really.
