streetcar talkin'

Rabid has a pretty good idea, making small talk about the idea of small talk. I'll have to try that.

Vote at top web comics to see my long writing struggle to come up with a good comic that wasn't too down on violent video games (which I do play, but ... it would be nice to enjoy vicarious exertion without involving exploding heads).

Rabid: They're getting more mainstream -- it's just a matter of time.
Noel: I guess so.

Noel: Too banal! How will I ever connect with a stranger and make a new friend over the WEATHER?!

Rabid: You're still better off than saying "Frag any good noobs lately?"
Noel: Ha. Anyway, this is my stop -- nice talking to you...

Rabid: Yes, have a good day... XMASSACRE78!!

Noel: W-was that my online arch-nemesis, RABIDDOG88?!
