Chapter 14, Page 18 Rodent Revenge

Do not mess with squirrels. They will get you back.

Sorry about the quality and the wait, the flu stinks.

This really happened. This squirrel had the best revenge ever. I laughed and laughed.

I didn't make any human friends at camp.

Been a long time since I remember seeing a large format MQC comic like this. Bravo! :)

@Dan: I figured my readers deserved a treat for waiting so long. Though I wish I had been able to make the drawings themselves a little better.

Brian Gill said...

Good to see a new MQC. :)

@Brigid: Just in time for the New Year! Good on you.

Sorry to hear about the flu. Hope you enjoyed New Years all the same.

Brigid said...

@Dad: Thanks!

@Journo: I spent most of New Year's Eve playing video games and sleeping. New Year's Day was pretty much the same except I listened to music instead of playing video games. ^_^

Sounds pretty much like my Christmas (and the next two days) except for the video gaming (but replace that phrase with watching television, at least when I wasn't sleeping, and you've described my holiday more or less exactly). Still not entirely over whatever malady seems to have struck me. :(

Brigid said...

Dan: Thank goodness for cable and internet access, otherwise I'd have gone completely nuts this winter. Hope you get better soon!

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: That sounds neat! I had a pretty busy time on New Year's Eve. New Year's day was pretty chilled out.

BTW, I forgot to ask you, how does it feel to be fluent in English, Norwegian and Squirrel?

@Dan: Get well soon!

Brigid said...

@Brigid: It would've been neater if breathing had been easier. ^_^

And I don't know. Summer camp isn't really sufficient to gain fluency in a language. Squirrel is pretty easy to pick up, though. They work with some very basic concepts, after all.

So you really think summer camp is insufficient? I once took a class in Japanese at a community college. It met once a week for three hours (minus a half-hour break) per session. At the end of the semester the teacher proposed the idea of doing a second semester, but changing it from three to two hours per session (presumably the half-hour break would have been left intact). It was about then that I quit the class. It would be difficult enough to learn even a relatively simple language in three hours a week. Learning Japanese in two hours a week? Fuggedaboudit. :(

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: Good point.

Squeaker, squeaker, squick, squeakin?

Brigid said...

@Dan: Yeah. Wow. With all that time to forget what you learned?

@Journo: Hmm. Hard to tell without body language. That counts for almost half of the language.

Croatoan5376@yahoo.com (Dan) said...

Didn't help that the teacher tried to teach us the written language first (I mean seriously, even in Japan no one learns to write the language before they can read it. I can't think of any language, ever, where people learn to read and write before they can speak it.

Brigid said...

@Dan: Being able to visualize what your learning may help some people. After all, learning a language naturally takes years and starts in infancy. People who are old enough to read and write expect to be able to read and write any new languages they decide to learn.

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: Do you get the reference at all? The whole squeaker, squeak, squeakin?

Brigid said...

@Journo: "Are you talking to that squirrel?"

"It's brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, I tell you!"

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: Oh, good. I thought you lost your touch ;P

Brigid said...

@Journo: Nevah! Except on those days when there's more mucous than grey matter in my head.
