Canapé panic

13/05/2011

Jonathan looked at this comic and told me it was weird. ‘Weird don’t-post-it, or weird-cool?’ I said. He told me to trust my instincts. I told him my instincts weren’t trustworthy, and besides, since I was so busy with work, I didn’t have time to self-edit. I think this comic might have spawned from the book I am reading to Otto, The Key to Rondo, about a music box that sucks in two children, and possibly from the wonderful Kelly Link story I read a few years back, The Faery Handbag.

If you are in Auckland, you should check out the Writers and Readers festival; there is even a session on comics.

    Definitely weird-cool!

    Good weird, I agree. I’ve always thought life was too short to stuff a mushroom but now am wondering if it’s too short to stuff a canape into a handbag…

    If you think what lives in your handbag is weird, try exploring under the car seats when you have little fellow travellers. I was tidying our car and found in a secret compartment, with enough rations to support three aliens. Plus there was a rather sad little sacrificial lego man.

    The logic of this post still moves faster than my synapses. But I am really writing this comment to check whether the comments feature is working properly.
