It is a webcomic called Animals Have Problems Too. It's very good, though in the past few months the updates haven't been as regular. But it's still very funny. A trip through the archives is totally worth it.

Anyway, I guess it's a small internets, rachel.

To keep on the threadless topic, here's me wearing this shirt (sorry for weird angle and long hair).

Look, now I have shoulders. Well, not really -- and this picture isn't exactly recent, as it was taken last year. Close enough.

As soon as I can find a camera, I'll take a picture of myself where I look normal... and I don't have floating text next to me.

Gracias. And vortex generators are awesome. We stole one from a prof for an intermediate fluid dynamics class and shot smoke rings at each other, which was lots of fun. Also, being able to shoot one through the other was quite difficult, but also quite fun. I don't smoke, but if I did, I'd definitely spend *ALL* my smoking time learning to do that.

Oh, and I'm not an aero, just a lowly ME. But sometimes I think I should have been.

Awesome. You work out the most efficient use of hair product? That shows a level of commitment to the optimum course of action that one rarely sees these days.

So without further ado, I give you a picture of me drinking from a coconut, taken on July 30. Notice the crossed-strap badge of a true tourist.

I am trying to work out where that is, but not getting too far. So far I can see writing that I guess is Spanish, and you look somewhere warm and tropical. Central or South America? Right, Google time... nope, nothing too helpful, except now that I know what Cocos Frios are.

Any hints?

Basically, in this case, yeah. Since British English (and more recent derivations thereof, such as Aussie and Kiwi English, I think) spell traveling with two l's. American English, on the other hand, tends to follow the rule that if the last syllable isn't stressed, you don't have to double the last letter when adding a suffix. (For instance, pen -> penning, but open -> opening, since the stress is on the o.)

Okay. Here's my face. I'm in the front car, on the right. I was not informed that there was any sort of camera on this ride... But obviously everyone else knew.

Sitting next to me, with the tittie popping out, is the girl on which I have the most absurd crush evar. Sitting behind us is a strange man... Chargin' his laser.

Looking in my open directory (check it out, there's some crazy shit in there), I can find a few nice photos of me:

Image
That's almost 2 years old now, me in Wales.

Image
Me at Uni after a big night out. Holding a leg. Yup.

Image
Me when I was wearing my new hat and scarf (maybe 9 or so months ago?)

Image
Me talking about one of my favourite bands, Mew.

So that's pretty much me, feel free to have a root around in that open directory, but be warned there may be some NSFW shit in there I have no idea.

I believe, good sir, that if you are going to be speaking in that manner, you wish to be spelling your "proper respect" the colloquial way, "propa respect". Then maybe if we go phonetic, "pro'a rispek".

Ren is on the fora, and she discovered a while back that 'Props' was short for 'Proper respect' and has been using it that way ever since.

As for fluent in Chav, she's Canadian, probably doesn't know what one is (Not like us Englishers who know all about Chavs and Neds).

Ahhh I see. Oh, I like canadian people. By which I mean, I like the two canadian people I've met in my life so far.

I didn't know props meant that either, that's an interesting fact. I'm still not going to use the word though, it sounds funny with my voice. Although, so did "Aye" and "Jolly" but over time they have become more normal-sounding to me.

Because I'm just that awesome! Proper respect, Jesse.

New things I've been trying to work into my language: I use the word "awesome" too much, so I've been trying to add to my "that's great" responses. "Capital" is my latest favourite, or "spectacular."
