STRIP: Twelve Step Program in Two Easy Steps
So, first things first, we have a guest star in the strip this week. My darling friend, Darien, you might remember the post about her shop HERE Well, this week's strip is all about two things.
1) The recent rash of desperation laden attempts at viewers through the use of weird, obscure, and ultimately fucking disturbing obsessions/addictions/what have you.
2) My own personal addiction to argyle.
Now, I love my brain fluff. You know, shows like "Toddlers and Tiaras", "Little Miss Perfect", and "Wipeout". Shows that have no hope whatsoever in enriching humanity as a whole, but damnit they make me laugh/relax. However, we tried to watch one of those weird obsession shows the other day and I just COULD NOT stop cringing while watching it. I made HM turn it off.
It was too disturbing.
And that is pretty bad from the girl that thought "Drag Me To Hell" was the funniest thing she had seen in a LONG time.
That being said, I do own an almost absurd amount of argyle. Socks, tights, and even cardigans. Thankfully, I am fairly certain my addiction to argyle is not likely to become life threatening....I think. I hope. I would be very sad if I had to give up argyle for health purposes.
There would be a moment of consideration but I am pretty sure I would fall off the argyle wagon.
ANYWAY, Wednesday will tell the tale. Will Darien be able to help Battie with her addiction? Will Battie and her loved ones be lost in an argyle nightmare? Wait and see!
