because i am not someone who knows things, i had never come across the web comic that gave birth to this book. i just saw a kitty on the cover of this book and bought it. fortunately for me, and unlike some of my other impulsive decisions, this one worked out and i had many giggles as i turned the pages.

i enjoy this kind of simple-cute art

it’s true that there’s some sameness to the jokes after a while, and they don’t all hit the high hilarity mark, but the ones that do were good enough for me to be glad i’m such a bookgrabby person.

and i also liked the ones that weren’t funny, but prescient and scary

there are even a couple of unillustrated story-stories and i’m unashamed to admit this one made me laugh a bunch

this book taught me a lot about the dangers of honesty

and… well, this one taught me nothing but it made me snicker anyway

there are laughs in the book, and there are free laughs on the web comic. consult your budget and make your decisions accordingly.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
