Toy-Fu 24 - Scared

I actually wrote this one yesterday. I say that because it might look as if I'm reacting with mawkish sentimentality, or in some way trying to relate a webcomic about toys to the real world in a way that doesn't do either of us any favours. But I wasn't.

Awww.
I love the fact that the garden looks so pretty and non-threatening too. (Well so far anyway, not sure if I'll think the same if any spiders do turn up...)

Hugging is always good. And I'm fine everyone, unlike the wickedly killed, injured and bereaved around here. but thanks for the houghts.

Just heard from one of my friends and her tube pulled out of Aldgate just before the explosion there, she's stranded in Mile End but if that's the worst thing that happens to her today then she's had a pretty good day.

Hugging is the only way James, you're right there, hope you're not trying to find anybody...it sucks waiting for your phone to beep I can tell you.

hugging always helps.

Oh, that's so sweet!

All clear in west London (Hammersmith/Ealing) but the fact that I was wondering around the British Library in King's Cross yesterday fills me with dread... I hope other readers are okay and undamaged.

Intentional or not, this episode's theme is wonderfully apt. Predict terrorist attacks more often.

Ahh! That is strangely erm... well I suppose the word would be emotive. Oh now I've gone all cheesy. I never do that! Argh!

Oh, SO sweet!

Back in my office in the City (London, not Falmouth obv.) this morning and it's bizarre; normal journey in, Waterloo-City tubes running, everyone calm - you would never know anything had happen. It's the Blitz spirit... or sheer British bloodymindedness.

What a horrible day yesterday was. I hope all your friends and families are safe and well.

ps I do think, by the way, that you are risking a backlash against innocent garden spiders...

See, that's a shame, I was hoping you'd stick with the Larry David rule of 'No hugging or learning'.

What's next, we learn that really the spiders are just like us, and that we should all just try to get alone?

Somebody's hiding their feeeeeeeelings.... Admit it, you cried. And dude, don't give away the ending.

Mummy/Crit said...

James, you are bloody brilliant, I am so glad that I stumbled into your fabulous blog-world. Thank you for writing, and sharing. And hell, I'll admit it, I cried (but I'm a mummy, we cry all the time, all it takes is a 4 year old and 3 words)

Herge Smith said...

'Mawkish sentimentality' - don't you think it's about time we stopped being so damn prejudiced toward the Mawks? So what if they cry a lot and having many poignant moments where they grew emotionally - does that make the Mawks bad people?

james henry said...

Exactly. You know, sometimes I start to think about those poor little guys, and I just... (sniff) I'm sorry, I'm too emotional right now.

Toy-fu has been given new, wonderful depths.
