I sent in some photos for a Facebook photo contest recently, and the winners were announced today. I didn’t win, but I did get a cute¬†caption next to my photo, announcing that the judges thought my work was cool and very “Annie Collinge.” This is great, because I’ve known for a long time that I wasn’t special. My mom used to tell me as a child, “You’re going to grow up to be just like everyone else, sweetie. It’s a wide world out there, and everyone is wearing the same shirts from the Gap. Isn’t life grand?” I’m just kidding. My mom would have thrown in some curse words. In any case, I looked into Annie Collinge’s work, and the judges are right. We have a ton of things in common. We love bright colors, anthropomorphized household items, and red dresses. I wonder if she also dates jerks and loves Swedish Fish. Probably.

F-Minus

I used to have an uber-painful desk job, complete with ridiculous bosses, giant spreadsheets and angry political discussions in the break room. The only good thing about it (besides some co-workers, yearly crab feasts and X-mas gift baskets) was the daily newspaper we all looked through after the big boss was done with it. I would take out the crossword and work on it at lunchtime alone at my desk, and then, defeated, I’d read the comics (that’s what I was really after, I’m no good at those word things). The best comic was F-minus, because it was dry and sarcastic, and because it dared to have one cell that wasn’t a circle (we’re not through yet, Family Circus. You will suffer my wrath). It’s a comic written and drawn by a young guy from Arizona, Tony Carrillo. I just started following him on Twitter. I hope he’s as funny in 140 characters as he is in one rectangle (doubt it).
