Two ladies, a dragon, and a hot air balloon

EDIT: Still feeling a little tired from illness. I'm going on blog break until Monday 2-25-2013 to rest up. Today, I'm being featured on Laura Eno's Tuesday Tea with Miss Snark. You can find that post HERE. Please come save me! 
It is anniversary week for Michelle Wallace who blogs at Writer in Transit and for Elise Fallson. If you have time, please stop by and wish both of these lovely ladies a happy anniversary. Michelle could do with some luck as she recently had a computer motherboard failure. I'm glad hers got resolved quickly. When mine crashed three years ago, I was out of a computer for two months. I had a lot of overclocking stuff done so that I could do high-end gaming (it was toward the end of my World of Warcraft career).

That's my attempt at captioning. Thanks to Elise and Michelle for putting up such a great blog fest idea.

Scott over at Indie Book Blog reviewed my first book Slipstream. If you've been curious about my first book, please go and check out what he has to say at this link HERE.

  5. You're everywhere! Funny cartoon. And I've lost a motherboard before too. Literally, no kidding here, within a week of my warranty running out. I'd spent $3k on a damned machine and one year after I get I find out replacing my motherboard would be an additional $800... that's what I get for spending so much on something. My lesson was learned: Don't buy something expensive if you can't afford to have it fixed if it tears up.

  9. Michael, judging by your comment, I'm convinced that I was super-lucky to get things up and running (well, thanks to the technician, but it took him many hours.)

    Great captions. I like your confused and champagne-drunk flying hero. *giggles* And you incorporated bonus words too...
    Thank you for participating in our Bloghop!

  17. I've sort of missed the boat on what this is all about. But I enjoyed the cartoon a lot.

    By the way: "Oculus" is really, really good. You were not kidding about the detail you put into it.

  24. Ah, good one! I wish I could have figured out how to get the words into the word balloons. Good job on the captions!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I had a hard time with the panels. My blog didn't play nice with me. In the end, I'm missing the bottom panel. Oh, well. I tried.
    I love your panels.
    I'm SO sorry you've been ill. That stinks. I hope you feel better soon.
