Caption: Our heroine, suffering from an acutely painful tonsil infection, finds herself praying! Will desperation turn this agnostic Taoist into a catholic? Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name, bla bla bla etc. God grant me health! God grant me health! ... A few days and several doses of Amoxicillin later ... Gosh! My health is returning! Maybe God answered my prayers!! Maybe I should become a nun or something to show my gratitude. Of course, if there really is a patriarchal capital-G-God up there ... who hears prayers and consciously guides every aspect of our lives.... Then he made me sick in the first place! What a sadistic jerk!! And so, Nina remains an agnostic Taoist... Until the next time she's desperate.

I can learn so much about my audience! For instance, I never realized how many of you out there in readerland were in prisons and mental institutions! Apparently a lot of you have nothing to do but obsess on cartoon characters all day! But guys--I am a cartoon character! Two-dimensional, ink-on-paper, barely 2" tall! And I can only mate with other cartoon characters! So, confidential to J.S., T.R., M.J., M.I., C.K., E.Y., M.O., U.S., and etc: ...Sorry, fellas--it'd never work! Your postage stamps, on the other hand... Elvis Presley.

Caption: Housemates from Hell. Nina didn't mind at all when Sharyn's German boyfriend Jens came to stay at their little house in Santa Cruz. He's a nice guy, and they're such a cute couple…However, after a month, tensions began to build. It's good to know I live with quality people who share their space and don't put up walls around themselves. Uh-huh. Privacy peace & quiet = toast. Nobody said anything, though. Stab! Anything wrong? Death! Yeah! Kill. Blah blah. No. Nothing wrong, no problem. Soon Nina and her other housemates began talking about it. He's too low energy. All the extra noise and talking interferes with my meditations. He smokes and drinks and just bugs me. Jens eventually confronted Nina...Zo, I unterstand you are nut zateesfied vis me. You bet your ass! You play horrible music! You leave cigarette butts in the backyard! I have to pay rent to put up with that shit! Get lost, already! Er, I'm sorry, go ahead and stay here as long as you like. How could I say that? I'm despicable. It's good to know you're a quality person.

If everyone did that, we could end world hunger! 2. Live in a group house. The rent sure is cheap! 3. Own nothing. Materialism is bad karma. Got a spare quarter? 4. Rent a closet!
