Indifferent, really

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @

It truly feels like summer. Cold AC. Minimum clothing. Fresh bed covers. Good books. No routine. Just me in bed. Reading and sleeping without a sense of time. Until school happens.

I’ve been asked…

[Day of elections]

Woman: Why aren’t you married?

Me: I’ll marry when I can vote! *FAJ2A!*

Mom: Hathi benti.

    Just like innumerable other silly things like clothes, hair, purses, cellphones yada yada yada, shoes do tell an awful lot of things about people. Things every bit as silly as the silly things people look at to judge; first looks are deceiving, dwelling on them is foolhardy.

    Gibberish. 🙂

    The one with my mom is hilarious? Chena la..

    Dunno why I missed this post…

    1. I don’t get the comic strip…

    2. Your mum is just too cute!

    3. I love the last convo…it has a mysterious matter-of-fact cool/casual air to it…if that stranger was a guy, and you were me (or I was you [*confusion*]) I would SO fall in love.

  24. 24 Amethyst

    1. Don’t think too much;p

    2. She is?

    3. He freaked me out. No chance of falling in love AT ALL!
