with a mouse? they're excellent. there's no way i can even draw something resembling a human being with a mouse. or any shape for that matter.
when is the next series coming out?

That's just a prelude to a comic I plan on doing fairly regularly, starting (hope hope) as soon as this weekend, depending on when I get the bare bones of the website up.
cool. i'm going to add you to my friends list, so i can keep up with new developments.

I will add you back, because I tend to do that.
i should warn you though. in the past few days i've been told i'm a "douche bag", to "go back to sweden" (never been there, actually) and that i post "the lamest comments". i'm flattered by all those compliments, but not enough to add those people to my friends-list. :)
who the hell told you that?!?
my mom. *lol*
no, just some guy. i commented on one of my friends' posts, and apparently that stranger didn't like my comment. but i never really take people who can't tell the difference between sweden and holland quite seriously. it's a pretty good indicator for the amount if braincells somebody has. :)
oh that reminds me! i have to do a project for my world englishes class, on how english is in some country. how much it's used, for what purposes, do a lot of people speak it socially, is it taught much in school, govt position on it, popularity of english entertainment, etc.. do you think holland would be a good subject for this project? and if so, can i interview you so i dont have to do as much research? :)
sure, no problem. do you have to do just one country or several countries?
just one, everyone in the class gets one country to do (of our choosing). why, whatd you have in mind?
if you needed more countries i could help you get in touch with people from other countries as well (e.g. sweden). but one country should be more than enough.
arright cool.. i just realized the other day how much i've slacked on this- we're supposed to have it done in about a week and a half and i havent done a lick of research.
anyway, pretty much any info you can give me on english in holland would be great. official statistics i'll be able to find on my own (hopefully), so it's more perceptions that i'm looking for. why did you learn english? is it taught much in schools? do many people there speak it/speak it well? is it ever used in social settings? how do people view english.. as a 'global language', the people who learn it, native speakers, the culture it may represent? what do hollanders (what is the word for this?) think of americans? is english seen as 'belonging' to any particular countries (britain, usa, etc)? is there a govt policy regarding it? anything you want to tell me..
i may pester you with more questions later, but that's all i thought of right now. it's not important if you answer each question individually, i was giving you an idea of what i'm looking for
the one about the homeless person if my favorite, by the way. i'm a big smoker myself, and when meeting homeless people, i have often had to fight the urge... oh well, i won't get into that right now...
if i start reading about mysterious bunches of burnt homeless people turning up in holland, i am going to be mighty upset with you, mister
as if european events ever reach the american public... but just in case, maybe i should consider giving up smoking... it's a dangerous habit, and not just for the homeless people...
