I second that welcome. I have to say (because I tend to be a smart ass) that your name will cause all sorts of speculation of what you do for a living and/or your career path (none of which will be taken in a bad way here).

Hi, Liza. Where are you from? What brought you to Wapsi Square? Can you pass a Turing Test?

My guess: forum spam bot. And I concur on the Turing test...

Perhaps it's short for Eliza?

Call me Vitrvarg or Wolf usually answer to Wolf since it seems to explain me to people. I have been following Waspi for several years, one of the 24 comics I read during the week. I have 8 dogs: LiYin, Arna, Hyndla, Ljufr, Bjarkie, Iole, Gitta, and Frode. LiYin and Iole are my wife's more than mine.

I am a writer, unpublished. Cabinet Maker, carpenter, what ever I can do to earn some money. Feeding 8 dogs is expensive, but I would not get rid of them. Not one of them.

Welcome to the fun!

So, a cabinet maker, eh? Working on one of these, perhaps?

No, Normally just kitchen and bathroom cabinets, workshop cabinets, that sort of thing. They are custom built, to fit exactly in one space.

Hi Bosses,

I've been reading Wapsi for years (9 or so, off and on) and have occasionally appeared in both original and facebook comment streams (found some of my old ones during my latest deep dive).

Been meaning to get around to posting here as I've read more, especially as we seem to be kicking over into a 'next generation' kind of thing.

Like the Emperor is wont to say: Let's see what happens.

Michael.

Guess I ought to do this as well- Hi, I'm Greg and I am a wapsiholic (sotto chorus- "hi, Greg,")- been so since Bud blew up the island with a grenade... inside the aft torpedo room of a U-boat. I like to play with all manner of stuff- most of it goes "BANG" or "BOOM" but there are other less violent things I play with. I motorize bicycles, renovate my home, build furniture, do gunsmithing, artwork, writing, music, 1/6th scale militaria, 'G' gauge railroading, photography and whatever- work as a surgical tech, so I don't get a lot of free time. There's a busty, sexy 40y/o redhead that loves me to pieces here, along with her two hooligans... er... sons- 17 and 13. I am 61 this August- some of us still got it... been writing fanfiction in the fan art section if yer interested- "A visit to Phix" and "The Elixir"

Sa-loot!

Lots of fun sounding hobbies.

Cannot recall when I found Wapsi, though it was through reading Chickweed Lane on interwebs that led me to Pibgorn which led me to Girl Genius and somehow to Wapsi. Hmm... pattern here....

Iff'n I make it to August, I'll hit 58. All gauges are in the green so shouldn't be an issue.

Lots of things fascinate me and garner my interest but due to short attention span I tend to not get anything done. Plus spend too much time reading interesting posts on the Board! :)

Even without a short attention span, there comes a point where you can have enough diversified interests that you still don't have enough time to enjoy them properly...

I suffer from that, too... Case in point: I should have left for work about 10 minutes ago... :roll: (I'll still be on time, but it will be tight...)

Um, hi. New reader. Took about a week of on and off binge reading to get the entire comic read. Waspi Square has got to be one of the most consistently funny webcomics I've read in a long time. The art style of the comic reminds a bit of Jim Lawson from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame.

So, um, hi?

Welcome. You may want to cut back on the colloidal silver a bit, you look a little blue. ;)

Hello from GMT-8 (-7?) !

Out here we have this stupid thing called Daylight saving time

In any case, it should be repealed.

Nice to 'see you', you've come at an interesting time in the development of the current characters, (many of whom weren't around 13 years ago when the strip 1st started...)
