I say this because fer fucks just look at me, I'm a girl. Does this look like the face of a blood-thirsty warrior to you? Well it is. Currently, my favorite period of history is WWII and specifically the Pacific Theatre. There are two reasons for this. One is that I'm living in the States right now and the only person who will really spend time with me is a WWII vet who was amongst the men who stormed those beaches. The other reason is that this gent and I have something in common. I lived in the Philippines for a few years, outside of Clark Air Base, with Mount Pinatubo sitting in my backyard (before it erupted). And so I'm familiar with Luzon Island and fond of the people. Now you might ask "Anne, what were you doing in the PI?" And I would say "I'm not going to tell ya. Let's save that story for another day."
Today we're here to look at how things are going in the 2nd Annual Analogue Hobbies Winter Painting Challenge. More specifically we're here to look at how things are shaping up point-wise between two rival gamers Ray and Angry. (aka Fran). Currently Ray, a married man, is ahead of Angry, a man with a girlfriend. As a married man, Ray has an unfair advantage. He can tell his wife to bugger off and she won't mind and he's already got automatic responses to questions like "Do I look fat in this?" installed in his brain. So he spends more time painting and less time in the dog house than his rival. Angry on the other hand has a girlfriend and you can't tell a girlfriend to bugger off, they just won't tolerate it. Why Angry may not even have mastered phrases like "You look great for a woman your age" or "No, you look skinny in those pants", which may put him into hot water, reducing the amount of time he has to paint.
As a fan of their rivalry, I felt compelled to make a comic about it, And here it is.
Personally I think Angry should get a couple hundred handicap points for having a girlfriend, but Ray disagrees. So let's put this thing to the vote. What do you think? Should Angry get handicap points, and if so, how many? (Now this vote won't make a feckin' bit of difference, but play along, humour me). And remember, I may be a girl, but I'm a blood-thirsty one and I carry a gun. (it's legal here!).
