My Weekdays

NATURE, I LOVE YOU, I'M SORRY. I don't know why I'm such a techie, but I can't stop now! I'M TOO FAR GONE, I'M SORRY! Just give me some outlets, okay? Please? Somewhere? In a rock maybe?

Author Notes

This is like 90% of my weekdays.

I spend the daylight hours working inside, but always staring longingly at outside...I savor my weekend adventures into the outside world. :’D

(Yes, I could write outside - writing I prefer to do with pen/paper anyway - but that’s my hobby activity and not one that makes me any money. Well, neither do comics, but comics are just my FAVORITE THING EVER, OKAY??)

PS We made it to 30 strips! Woohoo!


Then it would be the sharing tree, which is a tree that gives you a DRM-locked PDF file.
30 strips! Woo!
Also, your trees have no outlets? What am I plugged into right now cause I'm sitting under a bench...O.o
You know, if you'd like, I could give you instructions on how to install an outlet in the middle of your backyard. It's not hard, and only requires a few wires, PVC pipe. and a few simple tools.

Or, a cheaper, easier and less permanent option would be to go to the home improvement store and purchase in an outdoor extension cord. Some even come with outlets attached at the end, some of which you can stake into the ground. They look something like this:

What I used to do back home was go out with my drawing materials and laptop onto the poolside deck looking over the creek running through the lower fields at my grandma's ranch, and just sit either at one of the tables or in the swinging hammock and do work. It was awesome.

Anyway, yeah, get a few extension cords, or ask me and I'll tell you how to install an outlet in your backyard. (You could even put it into a tree!)

Oh, and 30 strips. Party on!
@Mundius: DRM-locked? Nooo! That doesn't sound like a tree that like sharing. D:

@Arc Impulse: O_____O Are...are you in heaven? *pokes you*

@The_Hankerchief: Ohh I think I know what you're talking about. That's what my dad does for the outside Christmas lights, I think. Except I can't really do this because we don't have a backyard. :( We have an itty bitty porch...that just stares at a parking lot and more apartments .__. I long for the day we have a backyard...! But it's not likely to happen any time soon with our income. :(
Hmmm. Well, in that case, another idea would be to get a small portable generator you could take to a park. (Honda makes a small one for about $800 that is amazingly quiet as far as generators go. A little pricey, but worth it! As a bonus, they work great during power outages for keeping your internet and computer going. Just don't run it indoors! I linked to it below, if you're interested.

If that's a little out of reach, next time you're at the park, go to an area with the lights that shine along a path, sign, or display. On the back of the fixture, some of them have outlets built in! All you need is an extension cord, and BAM! Power at the park. Take that, nature.
@The_Hankerchief: Thanks for all the suggestions! I will definitely look into trying it out sometime. :D Nature cannot defeat meeee!
That's me, always looking out the window, I like my window and what I see from it though.
On days like this.. kids like you.. should be burning in HELL.
