While I was pregnant with my son, his father and I sorted out which animal he'd be most close to his whole life. We decided on a tiger, because his middle-name was the same as his god-father-to-be's first name. His god-father-to-be's nickname is Tiger, so it just made sense.
Fast-forward a few years, and it turns out he relates more to a kraken. SIGH!
When his little sister was in the works, her dad and I found ourselves deciding her animal for her as well. I was 90% more sure this time, because she seemed to think my uterus was an aquarium. I guess it kinda was!
Well, out she popped, and we had all these turtles ready to shower on her. Plush
a comic maybe!
I've toyed with the idea of doing a comic for years. I've even tried to start one multiple times (if anybody remembers AnimeCafe, that's the only one that ever lasted as long as it did, and I wasn't the only artist). Even Jason tried to help with ideas, suggesting his crimson fairies.

I contacted the General Manager of my hosting company, MidPhase, and let him know how I'd been treated and that I was thinking of going elsewhere. He went above and beyond my expectations, let me know it was a very rare occurrence and that they were implementing safeguards to prevent it from happening again. He made me feel like a customer again, instead of a noisy afterthought.
I feel like hugging the world again!
My boss suggested sending an email, and in the state I was in, I wasn't really going to. I was miserable and wallowing in my own self-pity, and trying to figure out what to do next. I'm really glad I decided to send the email, si
