I was behind schedule to start with, and then I screwed up the file and made it too wide because of a stray pixel... So ... doh.

We had a great dinner with June's parents, it was nice to see them (Seriously...), and I think that a good time was had by all.

Uhm... If anyone is playing DCUO, I've been playing that lately. If you're playing on the USPC, add me as Nurathan :) (Level 30 Nature Healer)

Have a great week!

Oops I forgot Katie's grene highlights in panel 1! I'll have to go back and fix that one.


Also, if I do say so myself, I made up my very own cheesecake recipies this weekend! One for pumpkin cheesecake, and one for a modified cherry. I got great reviews on it!

@MatthewJA - The new layout ditched ratings ;) I forgot to mention it, and it hasn't been important enough to me to fix :)

@model S - Not so much slow as preoccupied ;) She is returning to the scene of her crimes, so that's something on her mind.

Did RZ deliberately run to the sound of Beth or did Chad head him into there so that Beth would witness whatever he's about to do (is it Trophy Case, Warehouse One [full smashed cranium] or Security Guard [slightly squashed cranium])?

I love the strip, the $hit's about tho hit the fan I think.

I was more excited about cheese cake though.

Please post recipe on Facebook!

...cheesecake? What cheesecake? Have I missed something here?
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
Oh yes I remember. Sorry, revision (the full-on, "memorise 400 pages of notes in four weeks or die a gruesome slow death" version) has turned my brain to TOGM after just one day.

Skrael's Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe - This is a no bake recipe

Crust:

1/4C Margarine, melted
1 1/4C Graham cracker crumbs
1/2t Cinnamon
1/2t Pumpkin pie spice

Mix graham cracker crumbs, Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie Spice, slowly add the melted margarine. Stir with a fork, mixture will be clumpy, but make sure that the margarine is evenly distributed.

Line a 9" spring form pan with a circular piece of waxed paper, fill the bottom with your pie crust mixture, pat down until the bottom is covered.

To pat it down, I usually add a layer of cling film to the top of the crust and pat it down with my hands, then peel away the plastic. It works great.

For the filling:

1L full tub of thawed Cool Whip
600g of Cream Cheese (This is about 2 and a half packages of Philladelphia Cream Cheese)
1C granulated sugar
1/2 can of ready to use pumpkin pie filling (make sure it's ready to use - not just pumpkin puree)

Make sure that your cream cheese is softened and at room temperature so it will blend easily. Blend the Cool Whip and the Cream Cheese with a mixer. Once it is evenly blended, add your sugar slowly while continuing to mix. Seperate the mixture into two bowls, equal portions.

Layer the plain cheesecake mixture on top of the crust.

To the second half of your mixture, add half a can of your pumpkin pie filling and mix with your mixer. Once it is relatively uniform (it doesn't need to be exact) add this final layer to your cake.

Top with sprinked nutmeg and additional pumpkin pie spice.

Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Overnight is better!

Release from the springform pan after refridgeration. (obviously)

We froze the leftovers of this recipe, and it serves well straight fromthe freezer as well.

As an addition: I was thinking of baking my pumpkin pie bread, toasting that and making a bread crumb topping with a pumpkin glaze. I'll try this next time!

@model S - I'm pretty sure my insane laughs are entirely dignified! And ... I have no idea about the starving. That portion of the operation has been farmed out to a group in the Wastes... Which might not have been the wisest move, all considered.

@aok666 - He was headed in that direction, Chad is chasing him, not directing him.

@T.Gatto - Well, we still have a couple strips to go... I think that it is slowly heading towards the fan in DRAMATIC SLOW MOTION! And the cheese cake is pretty darn exciting, so I can understand why you feel that way :D

@aok666 - You missed delicious cheesecake. I had Cherry, but June is hawking her pumpkin recipe ;D

I found this comic on the top 100 webcomic page, and read it from back to front in one sitting. i love it.

@mag: she's not hawking it, i asked for it politely! ... with a bribe.... maybe...

@june: THANKS! we'll be trying it soon! i emailed it to my mom and gramma already! they'll both appreciate it!

@sp4depir4te@yahoo,com - Wow, that's difficult to type out :D Thanks for the compliment, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

@model S - I think it might be a good time to resize that picture :P

@sp4depir4te@yahoo,com - Depends on how good you are at eating brains?

i think that's a good idea... hmh.. i'll work on that.

Banbury Cakes beat cheesecakes by a whisker :-) but cheesecakes are still zom nom nom! Especially blueberry ones.
I need TOGM, it surely cures migraines? (Revising the different types of enterovirulent E coli hurts!)
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@model S - The layout is fairly unforgiving in that respect :)

@aok666 - No idea what those are, but cheesecake is sooooo good :)

Did she just make herself a new arm ?
Is she about to go all postal on him ?

Can I watch ? :)

@aok: did... did you just zom nom nom? i can't believe it caught on! HAHA!! my thing caught on! -throws a party and invites the fans (and everyone important in the comic, and james and june)-

@Sheela - If Beth goes postal on anyone, you can definitely watch ;)

@model S - No worries ;) It takes me a while to resize things sometimes too :/

Hi there, new reader here. Good gosh I happened upon this comic at about 11pm last night and read it from beginning to current page. It's now 4:08am. To the creator(s) of this little gem: you folks are awesome. That plot twist regarding Thomas/John plus sleep deprivation plus the current cliffhanger has made my current mental state resemble a hamster sandwiched in hash-browns smoking a cigar while surfing on a banana. LOVE your work! Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to sle-zzzzZZZZZZZ

@mag: what's the width i need?

@jandalman: refer to my above image macro while i sort out sizing issues.
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
@model S: yay party! Hope I don't get the date wrong and spend six hours holding cakes. Again.
I've been saying zom nom nom for ages... guess just never on here before.

@Jandalman: *zom nom nom* welcome to the Horde! And you think your mind is messed up? Try revising for eight hours a day (approximately two hours' Biochemistry - half of it maths hence lethal - two hours' Genetics, two hours' Microbiology - including those enterovirulent E. coli - and two hours' Physiology). It will make you long for the zombocalypse so that you don't have to revise any more.

@Jandalman - That's awesome! That was really nice to read, thank you :) Hopefully you'd have enjoyed it even if you weren't horribly sleep deprived :)

@model S - I would estimate 500-520px?

@aok666 - So what you're saying is that if you're ever bringing a cake to our party, we should send you a reminder?

Also, what the heck is Revision in non-UK terms? :)

@Magravan- i am great at eating brains, i do it all the time... with a side of fava beans.... seriously does anyone know what a fava bean looks or tastes like?
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
@Magravan: I'm saying remind me of which day the party's on, because otherwise I'll turn up three days early. Like an inverse Bunsen, tripled.
Revision is cramming for exams. It's also hell on earth. Especially if you have to remember, as well as all the vaguely interesting stuff, the shape and Gram status and oxidase status and catalase status and respiration type and preferred agar for every microbe!

@sp4depir4te: fava beans are broad beans. They taste like beans. If you're Mediterranean, they may induce haemolytic anaemia. And it's only funny if you say "fava beans and a nice Chianti snh snh snh".
Magravan edit delete reply
Magravan
@sp4depir4te - I don't think I've ever come across fava beans myself.

@aok666 - Oh okay, 3 days early isn't too bad... 3 days too late, not so much ;)

And yeah, I had something like that for an Archaeology / Bioanthropology course... I came to the conclusion that I really didn't care much about the bone structures of Neanderthals and things of that nature.
