Slowly closing like a dent in dough















Hmmmm.....let me think......

  1. "Tell me about the rabbits again George" had me frothing at the mouth, (quite literally. I'm brushing my teeth whilst reading this)with laughter...still hate the novel though.

    And it takes Prozac around 2 weeks to properly kick in and then the fun really begins!

  2. the guy at the end in the green shirt has alarmingly long lips and neck. like he's one who should be making fun of your sit n spin shenanigans with your lil brain buddy.

    1. Yeah, it was supposed to be 'ewwwwwww' lips, but he got away from me. Drawing fatigue, I think.

  3. I totally want to use the "He's being porn" as my Facebook profile picture, but that might be disrespectful.

    Give the Prozac 2- 6 weeks. In the meantime enjoy the crazy burst of energy that will eventually subside.

    Lots of people lose weight on Prozac, too.

    I used to have only one eyebrow, too. I shaved the top one off.

    1. LOSE WEIGHT? What is this you speak of? Now that I like the sound of. I like crazy energy, but haven't found any yet.

  4. Oh my god I nearly snorted my sweet tea out my nose at "MOM HE'S BEING PORN!!" hahahaha. You are amazing, dear Sir, and your blog makes my day.

  5. You know me, Gween. Include a Sit & Spin & I'm all in.

    And the Of Mice & Men reference was just icing.

    P.S. Those Nerf people sent me some of that new sh*t for FREE. You need to get on their radar. Think of all the goodies. I want a shirt that calls me out..."Will Blog for Free Crap."

    1. Thanks Marianne! I spend so much time in thrift stores because of my other job, that I realized it is a natural setting for most of my interior conversations, and it comes with so many useful props.
      But wait....people send you stuff for blogging? REALLY? Like Legos? Because I am not a sell-out....but I would....I mean I would sell-out for free lego....I mean I really would (looks at phantom lego reps cruising the blogosphere)
      Do I have to be what is known, and I use this term with great hesitancy, as a "mommy blogger"? Because I can do that. I have the breasts. Just need a wig. Oh man, the gears are turning....

      Delete
    2. I'll forward the Nerf people your link. And if I ever hear from the Lego crowd, you'll be the first to know! I'm also very impressed you'd be willing to grow boobies for free stuff. I like a man who shares my sense of integrity.

    3. P.S. Can you create a generic email for your blog so people can contact you with opportunties? Is it there and I'm just missing it?

      Yes I'm bossy. Imagine how my husband feels.

    4. I have one: gweenbrick@hotmail.com
      The breasts of men burst with integrity

  6. Hehehehe - love this, so many chuckles from your posts. We can relate so much to them. The way you combine sadness with humour is so sublime.
    Your clothed brain looks like testicles :)

    1. OH NO JULIE YOU ARE RIGHT!!! SICK! My brain looks like Gollum's scrotum.....waaahh! You are an artist, help me fix it! It ruins the whole thing, to think I am dialoging with my...my....what is a good joke term for testicles? With my Fecund Jelly Beans? Is that a thing?

      Delete
    2. Could be it's just me that sees testicles, maybe it means I'm a nut girl instead of a bum girl.

  7. Haha... another one of your bests! And I know that you wonder about people thinking your posts are cute - but this one touched the spot again. I don't have a way to do it now - since I'm in India - but when I get back to the States I really want a T-shirt or two with some of your drawings!

    1. Oh thanks Lady Bozo, I have to try and get that whole Zazzle thing together, because so far I really suck at it

  8. I love Brain on the couch and you on the sit n spin. That is such a great setting. Hilarious.
    I wish my brain would talk back to me. It only answers me when I'm trying to pick out fabric.

    1. Thanks Heather! The end of your comment caught me off guard and made me laugh. You are such a funny lady! Wait, do I follow your blog? I thought I did, but I don't get updates....let me get on that

  9. I hope I'm the only one who uses my bathrobe for mental illness days.

  10. "homeslices"

    I saw the words "mental illness" in a comment but my bwain confused it as mental stillness until I re-read the comment.

    My life reaLLy sucks sometimes, too, and now I have an electronic vacuum gauge that s'pposedly measures accurately to one micron, but the pump only goes to 35. (I must say I am getting an interesting array of toys in this new profession.)

    1. What is the vacuum gauge for? Are you a Steampunk fan? Because for some reason I have this image of your house as being filled with all kinds of old-timey gadgets

      Delete
    2. A vacuum gauge is used to measure how well the evacuation process is going during an HVAC system repair or installation. The tubing joints are usually copper brazed (similar to welding w oxygen acetylene torch) and the system has to be air tight. I happen to enjoy Steampunk photos very much but I don't really own or have anything classified as Steampunk. I do have some very old cameras that I have actually used, including a 4x5 inch view camera, the kind you get under a cloth to focus and view the image on a glass panel, with rail and bellows. I have a "tendency" to not throw things away. I have two older smaller homes right next to each other, and one house is now my shop and storage. I also have some older computer equipment as well, and building my own chemical laboratory, as I have an interest in biodiesel and I like to invent things and solve problems. Edison fascinated me as a child.

  12. You're freaking brilliant. I hope you know that.

    "Tell me about the rabbits, George..."

    OMG. Dying.

  13. "Tell me about the rabbits again George" - holy crap that one caught me off guard! You really made me laugh today. Thank you. :)

  14. BRUCE BRUCE BRUCE BRUCE drawing made me want to go to another Springsteen concert. THAT is something that gets me out of depression.

    1. That is so funny. She is actually quoting 'Matilda', which is a movie she knows by heart and reenacts, without any prompting, constantly. With different voices for the characters and everything. The line about "personal snack" is always delivered in a sinister whisper...

      Delete
    2. I love to do Matilda movie quotes too, but I don't have it completely memorized. I think my favorite line is the Daryl Chickens instead of Charles Dickens mistake. Favorite scene? Probably when she is arguing with her clueless parents about how old she is and that she should be in school.

  15. This is ALL KINDS of fabulous! Seriously! Brain in a bathrobe. Brain on a sit-n-spin. "Mom! He's being porn." Just awesomesauce all over the place!

    1. Thanks thescousewife! Glad you liked it. I stayed at work till 6.00 last night to get it done, just to make up for the gloominess of the day's before's post. I think I abused some apostrophe's just then.

  16. They should have sit-n-spins at therapy. I would leave so happy!

    I love your brain in your wife's bathrobe. Instead of the "turtleneck of seriousness" it's the "bathrobe of depression". It actually really reminds me of the sad bathrobe from those Abilify ads.

  17. I would totally let you feed the rabbits if it made you feel better.

    1. Um....is "feed the rabbits" a euphemism for death? Are you threatening me, Mandy? What-paranoid? No, not at all.

  18. Pretty darn funny. They had one of those spinners in the Dr.'s office and a kid whacked his head a while back. They made his mom take him to the ER and I got seen earlier. I say put them everywhere.

    1. What a stupid thing to have at the doctor's office. However, i am glad it worked out well for you. one child's concussion is another man's gain

  19. That is my brain on anxiety. Sometimes I have fun with it because it doesn't happen often anymore. The world looks like a dark German forest, where there are monsters behind every tree, and none of them speak a language I can make any sense out of, but I try. Oh, how I try.

    1. Dark german forests are scary, especially the woodcut ones with demons hanging around in them.

  20. I have to admit that after reading Julie's comment and your response, a certain part of Gollum's anatomy (which I'd definitely never considered) was brought to mind by Brain in the Abilify robe.

    Great stuff! Got a kick out of the "Of Mice and Men" reference. I also liked the "Mom! He's being porn!" drawing. The sit and spin with Brain was great. Keep posting. Hopefully you'll feel better soon.

    1. Yeah sorry about that. Intimate knowledge of Gollum is probably nobody's idea of a good time

  21. Sit'n'Spins are like having a personal carnival ride at home! They made my childhood! Nice post! Hope you and brain work things out.
