Libby Sk8er Girl to shows up every Wednesday. You can keep up by checking back here, or by following @bthingsart and/or @starryknightstudios on Instagram!
To think, this was entirely Anna Log's idea and now she's mad at us for making it actually interesting! First, she was mad when I cut the bottom half off of my top/dress thing. Then, she was totally pissed when she discovered Siobhán had traded her top for a tutu. (But, like, what did she expect there? It's Siobhán…Siobhán the Shirtless!) And to cap it all off, Anna has the audacity to be exasperated by our composing a killer rap! (Not to be confused with a killer app, which is utterly boring to even think about.) It just doesn't seem right! (Oh, and she should be glad we kept the elf ears on, because those are uncomfortable!)
But alas, as Brian's mom would say, that is a reflection on Anna, not on me. (It might be a reflection on Shiobhán, however, because although you can't tell in the comic, she had covered herself in glitter, so she was sparkling like a nearly-bisected grape in the microwave.) Even so, I think Anna should just be grateful that she has friends who are willing to help out. After all, it's not like she's got a whole lotta friends…(Most people aren't patient enough to read her dialogue, since it's written in cursive…)
On another note, do you ever find it interesting to see what people's preferences are regarding the spelling of words that have more than one "acceptable" spelling? For instance, Brian likes to spell "dialogue" with the "-ue" at the end, but he prefers to write "analog" without it, and "catalog(ue)" sometimes has the "-ue" and sometimes doesn't (this effectively means I do this by virtue of being Brian's fictional character)! It's just kinda weird in that way that doesn't really matter but is hypothetically of note. Of course, some people would probably go on long diatribes about which spelling is the correct one, but those people (on the whole) probably drink too much tea and go on about wanting a lack of sunsets or some bullshit like that. Really, it's a meaningless set of variations that do not significantly alter the meaning, but do seem to have some aesthetic relevance. But then, aesthetic evaluations are largely personal, and even if someone wants to believe they are "Correct™", they are really just expressing themselves and misgauging their relevance to the lives of others and the Grand Scheme of the Universe. So, we're back to seeing it as just a thing that doesn't really matter all that much, but can matter to people individually, despite there being no "rational" reason as to why.
Also, has anyone else noticed in the Wednesday show that Wednesday uses a German typewriter that uses the QWERTZ layout, instread of the QWERTY that is common in the English-speaking world? Brian did, and he thought it should be mentioned in my Scribb1e for some reason, which I honestly just think is rude. But that's me. I'll talk to you again next week!
