ut comic

A new UT Comic Strip is up! In case you haven't guessed, I've gone through a few Tamagochi creatures since Hershey. The thing is, you can't leave them alone for more than four hours. They die of hunger, or get sick and die, or die of boredom, or just out of spite. It's as if they all share a secret Tamagochi Death Wish, a yearning for something better (and can you blame them, really?). I did discover that instead of giving them physical affection, I can substitute icecream instead. Perhaps this only works for my particular kind of Tamagochi clone. In any case, I don't recommend that you try this at home. Site of the day: TV Listings Satellite guide. Only works for some areas in U.S. and Canada (does work for Metro Toronto!), but you can get customized tv listings...a perfect site for the truly avid couch potato.
