Whale fluke

"Douchebag Porpoise" could be a band name.

Questionable Content starts out a little emotional in today's strip, but that's eased by Marten telling Faye exactly the right things.

Yes, occasionally "douchebag porpoise" is exactly the right thing to say.

Slightly more context: Faye's dealing with how her boyfriend Sven cheated on her. Marten is Faye's roommate and, once upon a time, a prospective boyfriend, though that didn't work out (but it turned out he and Dora were a really good match as a couple). This is one of the things I like about QC: the drama is rarely too outrageous, especially by soap opera standards. And its characters are almost all people who try to make others feel better. This is an example. Huh: QC can actually be analyzed.

Closer to Interviewing

My job interview's still on for 3 o'clock.

Yesterday I made copies of a few of my Hermiston Herald articles (none of them are online, so I couldn't grab them from there), but I wasn't happy with the copies. Did them at a decrepit Fred Meyer copier that wouldn't let me adjust how light they were printing. This morning I did the smarter thing of redoing the copies at a dedicated printer place, plus making copies of my resume on nice paper.

My interview clothes are on my bed. For the first time in years, I'll wear a tie (one of the two I have (Hey! I'll wear both!)). I hope to be a Sharp-Dressed Man.

Happy Birthday (belated), jenni_powell

It's now the day after the birthday for jenni_powell, since she no longer lives in Los Angeles and lives somewhere in either the Central or the Eastern time zone.

She's written, she's acted, she's done improv, she's demonstrated goofy-geeky love for Bruce Campbell, she's worked in television (the documentary series Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead), and now she's doing...other stuff in another place. Haven't heard from her lately. I hope she's still doing well, and that her birthday was worthy.
