    It's Friday, time for FREAKANGELS: In which the shit that kicked off last week continues to kick.

    Morning, Whitechaple. Too cold, fingers not quite working. I continue to consider possible winter mulling recipes for red bull. Everyone else surviving?

    First signs of Christmas here this week. Snow, car not starting and first christmas concert of the year. All three hours of it.
    Now that's a good cliffhanger to end with. Only 6 days, 23 hours and 40 minutes until we find out what happens next.
    Oh, and yay Sirkka.

    And kick it does...

    @Paul Duffield: That offer still stands for me to carry your children.

    I'm so happy it's Friday. No more of this 'leaving the house' bollocks for me. The weather has said 'Fuck off inside, ye gowl' and I'm more than happy to oblige.

    Let me know how that Mulled Bull thing works out, Ariana

    Well, shit.

    Another brilliant spisode, and I love how quickly the girl without abilities who had come to kill them has become one of them so seemlessly. You have to wonder if there's an alterior motive there...

    ...or maybe I just have to...

    i had to back and read each page because i was so lost in the art.

    Not that I'm really worried yet.

    What had be worried was that minite I couldn't get into Whitechapel and got a "An unrecoverable error has occured" message.

    I echo, "well, shit... Great episode, had me scrabbling around like I was in the dark, trying to work out what was going on...

    Been a good/crappy week. Missed the Alan Moore signing at my LCS to go to a football match that bored my eyes. Got sick on Tuesday but managed to finish a piece for a 'zine I write for. Had to work an extra late on Wednesday. Finished my Christmas shopping yesterday and spent a ton of money on other people which felt great. Couldn't sleep last night, and am working on three hours sleep. Did come up with a whacky children's story about karma and a red calf, though...

    Also, first panel = wonderful.

    wonderful as always

    Oh, thats nice. Very nice.

    I am all alone, at the moment. The girlfriend is interstate. The best mate is down the peninsula, outta town. Nobody on twitter was awake or talkative. So I decided to head into town for some street-scraping.

    And I finally managed to track down Wunderkammer. They were closed, of course - this was about 11:30pm - but in the window they had this delightful little Stirling 4 Difference Engine, fully functioning. Absolutely gorgeous in its pointlessness, and it made me entirely forget my loneliness and left me cheerful for the rest of the evening. I'm going back tomorrow during business hours to pick up a similar, though simpler, device for a drastically cheaper pricetag. The Stirling 4 is retailing for about AU$300, you see...

    Paul, your art is getting better with every episode. :)

    Warren, thank you for that ending - Love the expression on her face.

    Usually, I comment on the week's episode and then my own week.
    "Well, Shit" pretty much sums them both up
    (In a good way for FreakAngels, and in a bad way for me)

    Shit. Shitshitshitshitshit.


    Most of the week I've been packing and dealing with my obviously insane two-year old daughter. Because no sane person would shout "HUNGRY!" at the top of their lungs after I've acknowledged that I heard them, right? Not for half an hour, right? Not ten minutes after finishing lunch, right? That's what I thought.

    Also I'm using this week to prepare for birthday shenanigans. We usually invite some friends over for a weekend of gaming, right near my birthday, but this year we happen to be moving/driving the weekend of my birthday. So we moved it up. Which is why I'll probably be entirely out for the rest of the weekend. Hope no one's weekend gets fucked over by a grenade.

    @ Oda I got the same message too, lots of readers on slowing it down perhaps?

    Loved the bird's eye view opening this weeks episode and the tension is excellent, I want more!

    Weather wise we seem to of warmed up a little bit compared to the last couple of days, night time is freezing though.

    Spent some few minutes wondering what the possibilities could be for this week's installment. It was a nice touch to my morning. I got to be utterly wrong. That is pure joy right there.

    The artwork is incredible. The yellow of the gun blasts pops so strongly and acts as such an odd, but effective flare/light source. And now we get to find out about Kait's possibilities and where the hell is Arkady anyway? did I miss that? am I just being lazy?

    Today it is cold and everyone is beginning to complain about it, so I get to be content in my own little world of many many layers and warmth. Also - there will be a matinee today as I do not have an afternoon job anymore and there is Punisher at the huge fuckoff theatre downtown. i hate that theatre. fucking monopoly.

    Hope all are well, Good morning, Whitechapel!

    Couple thoughts... these guys seem a little too prepared? I mean, they obviously had it set up well in advanc, but its just a bit too organized. Like whoever it was knew exactly how the 'Angels would react.

    Why can't they make bullets? Im not sure on the whole process, but I know my dad makes his own bullets. Melt some metal and stick it in a mold or something.

    Snowing here. LOVE IT!

    @HylianHearts - you also have to have the equipment and gunpowder, as well as the primer button that ignites the power in the casing. Which, I assume, aren't really being manufactured anymore. The actual bullet and casing are easy enough to recycle, but the powder and primer are a little tough to come by.

    Also, there's this, because my wife demanded it. Apologies if it's terrible.

    She also wants a mobile wallpaper, but I'm not sure I'm up to that right now. Too busy.

    So happy I'm a red sea pedestrian and don't have to deal with all your Christmas mishagoss. No I don't want to go to your family's house for christmas dinner. SCREW THAT NOISE
    • CommentTimeDec 5th 2008
    I was wondering if Kait may actually be a seriously high value target among Freakangels crisis responders. And I'm pretty sure Mark is somehow listening to the FreakWaves and directing his minions to the other 'Angels. Or at least that's my theory. Again, the best part of Friday has fled by too quickly and it's far too long to next week. Thanks again.

    Oh, and also thanks for giving Alice a plum role as more than "hapless norm", "brainless minion" or "irritating punk avenger."

    I really love these characters. }:>

    another week has slipped through my hands leaving only burns and cuts. *Sigh*

    Yes, the cold bugs my hands and feet, too. Not too bad in Phoenix, though. If I were still in Santa Fe it'd be something like 20-30 degrees at night. Erk!

    A grenade is a bit of a cliffhanger, yes?
