So, yesterday marked the eight year anniversary of me and Leslie's first date! That's right, we started dating on 08/08/08. Makes it really easy to remember (though we both still almost forgot). Our first date was a trip to the movies to see the hot new Batman film everyone was talking about. A lot of people say movies are a lame first date but whatever, it worked out pretty well, I think.
It's been eight years since we started dating, five years since we started Blaster Nation, three years since we got married, and in a few more months, it'll be two years since we started Rock Cocks. Blaster Nation may be wrapping up, but we've got so many plans for the future. We're going to be making comics until we're wrinkled and gray, and we're going to make them all together. I couldn't ask for a better artist, a better wife, or a better friend than Leslie. I'm so lucky to have someone as amazing as her to work with, let alone be married to. And of course, that wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for the wonderful support you guys have given us over the years. You guys are the best, and I can't thank you enough. But dammit, I'm going to try! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
In less sappy news, I sold a bunch of old Street Fighter IV toys from my high school days and bought Fantasy Life for the 3DS! It's really cute and really god damn addictive holy shit. I started out as a carpenter, but then realized it'd be way more effective to double as a woodcutter so I could provide my own materials rather than buying them like a chump, so I dipped into woodcutting before realizing how helpful mining resources would be, so I tried all three until I figured that blacksmithing would ALSO be great for upgrading all my shit with all these things I get from my other three jobs. The life/job system is a lot of fun, and the main story is actually pretty engaging, too! Really digging the writing, every character is really amusing to read. Can't wait to see what else this game has to offer.
See you again next week!
