||Reuben Reuben I've been thinking
Posted on October 30th, 2008
|Today was largely taken up by errands. The first stop was the bird store for yet more seed and to have the legs added to our tray feeder now that they have come in. We also traded in a suet feeder that didn't work out and a length of pole we didn't end up needing.
The next stop was Target. Despite a long list, we ended up only getting some creamer and trash bags. We also stopped at the local Rite Aid and bought cheap wine and necco wafers. Interestingly, the spell check I'm using thinks that "necco" is a misspelling of necropsy. Am I the only person that likes those things?
Anywho, we decided to splurge a little and had lunch at the local family diner. Since we planned to have lunch there tomorrow, I ordered something different than what I normally get. I got a Reuben with steak fries. I haven't had a Reuben in years; every time I had one in the past I either scraped off the sauerkraut or had them hold it. Today I ate it grouchy German and all. That was delicious; methinks I'll get it more often.
Shortly after we got home things went bad. In only 10 minutes mom managed to tap dance on a few of my buttons, and was completely surprised when I rounded on her. Yet another reason I'm not work safe.
The rest of my day was focused on Project Rainbow. During the usual surfing online I stumbled across a few established characters that resemble some of my independently developed characters; The resemblance is probably appearance only, but it's too close for my liking. I can't really change their costumes and their hairdos are based on what would fit the character, but I can change their hair colors. That removes a lot of the similarity between them and these other characters. It also makes the project's codename a bit of a misnomer: it was Project RAINBOW because of the cast's hair colors (pink, yellow, green, blue). Normally the codename used for a project is directly related to the project (example: Project Noise = Din). In this case the relation is gone. But so is the chance of a lawsuit; even in the unlikely chance that the owners of those trademarked characters even read my comic, I don't think they would give a damn.
However, the RIAA has sued dead people, people who don't own a computer and 6 year olds. I'm probably in the right to be paranoid about that.
