|Been feeling pretty down and depressed lately. I'm putting this one up as a reminder that things will get better and to not give up. I figure a few of you readers could use it, too.|
Embrace of the Hunter: a Halloween VignetteTessa glowered down at the smaller fellow. "You are trespassing on the grounds of my Lady, poacher."Embrace of the Hunter: a Halloween Vignette by JimmyDimples
Folding his arms, Lesley showed a three-quartered smile up to the dangling, ensnared, golden haired amazon. "Not at all. You are in our woods. Otherwise you wouldn't have stepped into our trap."
Tessa wrested against the tangling vines that held and hung her from the tree branch like a side of beef at the butcher's in the market. But they simply wrapped and clung to her tighter. What frustrated her wasn't that she'd gotten caught in the snare in the first place. It was that she, a colossal amazon as well as Lady Sonya's champion and the Captain of her Guard, had gotten captured by some thin little twerp that she probably would've taken down by simply falling on him.
But she had to grudgingly admit the charming, even cute sandy-haired chap would have been otherwise likable if they had met in a tavern or the town square. He seemed clever.
JimmyDimples Inside OutJimmy found a good seat that was just one hair off to the right, but at the dead center stadium height of viewing the screen. And as he sat through the trailers, he nestled in, ready to enjoy the show. He wished his brother Larry was with him to see Pixels instead, but sadly, he had to work all this week. At least this movie was reportedly a sure winner.JimmyDimples Inside Out by JimmyDimples
But just as the logo for the theater's sound system showed, he felt something vibrate in his shirt pocket.
Meanwhile, in Jimmy Dimples Headquarters...
JD's Disgust: Aw, man, who's calling?
JD's Joy: Take it easy, maybe it's just a news alert or something. At least we muted it.
JD's Anger: Yeah, unlike the time we DIDN'T during choir practice just before church.
JD's Fear: ...it's still vibrating, guys.
JD's Disgust: And just as the movie's about to start. B, E, A, -utiful.
JD's Fear: What if it's work?
JD's Anger: What if it is?! If they think we're leaving the theater a

"A Small Screen 4-Koma"
by Jimmy Dimples
Two-shot of Dr. Eaton Green looking over at Les Safer, who's squinting at his smartphone.
1. DR. GREEN: What's caught your interest, Les?
2. LES: I'm watching Boom! and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
Dr. Green furrows his brow in concern for Les. Les looks up and gives Dr. Green full attention.
3. DR. GREEN: Shouldn't you watch that on a full sized telly or computer monitor?
4. DR. GREEN. That small Squintyvision screen must be agony on your eyes.
Les cracks a smile. Dr. Green keeps a poker face.
5. LES: Well, you, Mom and Dad always tell me I should watch less television!
Dr. Green simply turns to leave. Les looks on in inquiry.
6. LES: Where are you going, Doctor?
7. DR. GREEN: To the tool shed, then Mr. Dimples' laptop.
8. DR. GREEN: I'm going to hit any key to continue. With a 20 lb. sledgehammer.

"A Crop Top 4-Koma"
by Jimmy Dimples
Three-shot of Dr. Sonya Gannon (wearing a lab coat over a forest green halter crop top), Les Safer (in a lab coat over a simple buttondown shirt), and Tetsuko (in a forest green sleeveless muscle tee crop top). Sonya's very pleased to see Les. Les looks very alarmed and worried. Tetsuko looks at him in amused surprise.
1. SONYA: Hey, Les! Just got your Greenwear muscle tee crop tops!
2. LES: Yeah, well, take them off! Now!
3. TETSUKO: ...Whoa! Never thought I'd hear THAT from you!
Shoulder shot of Les, as his fretting gets closer to panic.
4. LES: I'm serious! Those living plant fibers in those Greenwear tops?
5. LES: Big problem! This species produces WAY more glucose than it needs, and stores it in the wearer's body!
6. LES: Body parts in contact with this Greenwear will rapidly fatten up and blow up like balloons!
Jack Wade: You know that, officially, Uncle Sam is completely neutral in this turkey shoot.
James Bond: And unofficially?
Jack Wade: We have no interest in seeing World War III - unless we start it.
