Today I realized that I cannot expect people on the Internet to have heard of the Geek Social Fallacies any more.
The Geek Social Fallacies are five things that geeks often believe about How Socializing Should Work, that cause a lot of conflict. I've found them to be pretty useful as a way to put a handle on certain concepts, and maybe even avoid going into bad situations.
(Looking at them in 2017, I find myself wondering how many of the GSFs the design of most social networks is running straight into...)
Apparently people are talking about How They Got Into Comics?
Me, I always wanted to be an animator but it sure is a lot of work and I’m lazy.

Sitting at the optometrist with dilated eyes. Got my normal glasses adjusted - no change on that prescription, but they’d gotte off-kilter - and am contemplating getting a separate pair for close-up work on the computer. Getting old.
ECCC is next week and I am SO incredibly glad not to be doing it this year. Hope all of y'all selling there go home with a lot less comics than you brought.
I should really start working cons again now that I have the Rita omnibus but I am just so damn drained lately. I'd rather focus my limited energy on moving to a sunnier place and getting somewhere on Parallax and/or Drowning City.
