642:6 Judgey Gemma

Howdy Toasters, 642 challenge time… what a wonderful way to procrastinate about studying. I used to have a gorgeous, white, long haired, deaf cat, Gemma, who I’m sure spent her life judging me and my behaviours ( and I’m just sure hated me for a while after I moved in with a friend and his pet rabbit) so this one just jumped off the page at me. 642 Topic: You are a loser who lives alone with a cat and have done for quite some time. One day your cat can’t take it any more and starts talking. What does … Continue reading 642:6 Judgey Gemma

comics, the geek and the child within

Howdy Toasters! Like all of us, at almost 36 years of age, i’m all growed up now…. well i’m supposed to be anyway. I hold a pretty cool job i enjoy and that challenges me, am completing a degree (a bigger challenge), have a band of misfits the world over that i call my friends, a little silver ferret at home, misbehave in ways only adults can and take all the tease and fun poking that comes with being a self confessed, fully fledged sci fi geek.
