Wandering Wednesday #12: Comics!

Whenever I find myself stressed out or bored, with no way of escaping the confines of my cubicle at work, and with limited net surfing options – I can understand why they’d block Facebook and Twitter, but WordPress to? That sucks! – I find myself turning to the few online comic sites that do get past the firewall. So this Wednesday, allow me to share some of the strips that have made me laugh out loud at work!

Regular readers of my blog would know that I have a cat, so this first strip was one I could relate to immediately. But I’m sure you’ll crack up reading Cat vs internet by The Oatmeal whether or not you’re cat owned.

This next site is especially for women. Created by Cathy Thorne, Everyday People cartoons are a hilarious take on women, and on the people who love and annoy them!

And then of course, there’s Dilbert, who will never let the joy go out of work! 😉

If you thought all I did at work was fun and games, think again. I give serious consideration to the important matter of ensuring that the Is are dotted and Ts are crossed. As an editor, I find that a lot of people have problems with the apostrophe. If you’re one of them, then this is for you!


Oh, and before I forget…there are those cute black and white love is cartoons too, and there’s…Archies and …

I’m sure there are plenty more! Have you got any favorite comic sites to share?

  1. Found you thru SITS and I’m so glad I did! I absolutely LOVE this! There are few things as nostalgic to me as comics – I love that they have remained a source of good, clean yet humorous fun. I have to say you TOTALLY made my day by linking to the Archie comics – those are by far my very favorite and it just put the biggest smile on my face to read some of those! What pure fun! Way to go on finding a way to escape when it seems like most of your options are blocked! Kudos to comics!

    • Yay! Archies so rock! I used to look forward to summer vacations at school as that was the time I used to read (actually, devour) those comics! They’re still so much fun!! That’s the thing I love about comics the most – how they cut across the age barrier. 🙂
