My overall progress was derailed by watch/timepiece shopping and research. I recently broke my own watch because I tried to replace the battery myself. I actually ended up getting a watch that I imagine Austin to have (Casio digital G-SHOCK square). I tried to mod it a bit (strip the text paint) but it was a failure; now I have a nail-polish-remover smelling bezel, but hopefully that goes away with time. I ended up getting a Citizen watch for formal occasions too. Both solar powered with perpetual calendar! No more battery changing (aka no more watch breaking)!
Part of Austin's dialogue is inspired by Lady Aberlin and Daniel Tiger [from Mr. Rogers] talking and singing about mistakes. Please appreciate!!!!! This made me cry SOO MUCH when I watched the Mr. Rogers documentary in theatre.
There are many good animal cameos this time. Jake is on team Pinkey.
I looked at more possum pictures. I really like them. Recently I found a series of pictures of a kitten in a watermelon patch and those pictures make me really happy. I really want to know who this cat is!!
This chapter is one of those instances where I learn more about my own character by figuring out what's going on it their head. Jake is very confused...but wearing that low-cut v-neck was an explicit choice. He has a really nice kitchen because he likes cooking.
I'm making Austin's eyelashes longer and longer with each chapter. Soon they're just take up the entire panel.
I have witnessed real people go into fetal position when they're being inundated with compliments.
Jake is going to have a forehead wrinkles when he grows old.
