JEFBOT.365_Leveled Offon August 26, 2011 at 12:18 am
It seems jefbot leveled off more than he leveled up, now that he has completed his “training” and decided to show the Cornfather his newfound powers. Did the Scarf pull a Michigan J. Frog (look it up) on purpose or is there some other factor at play? Come back Monday for the answer!
hey, Peg! haven’t seen you around these parts in a while – glad you’re back. well, your “Woot!” just awarded you the Shades of Firsting! these enhance concentration, especially when you let out a NnnnNggh! wear them well!:
lol Evidentially, this wasn’t MY 12:45 am lol…. I always miss it!
Yep, my comment is posted at 7:59am and it is now 11am here…. I shall keep this in mind *writing a posted note NOW*
hope you’re feeling better, Ky!
Every now and then, insomnia has this one perk.
Yes, indeed—though reading the next day’s comics the night before is a nice perk.
let’s not say the “I” word around these parts, Peg – i haven’t slept more than a few hours the past couple of nights! hope you get to sleep, soon. i’m holding out the same hope for myself.
Jef don’t force me to come up there and give you my aunt’s “homoeopathic insomnia remedy” (which basically means getting hit on the back of the head with a baseball bat) Get some sleep dude, we need you healthy or we won’t get our dose of Jefbot’s zany adventures.
Funny, my family has a “homeopathic insomnia remedy” too… we call it Bacardi!
i think i’ll pass on your aunt’s remedy, jiro – sounds like the cure would be worse than the insomnia! heheh.
and i’ll keep the bacardi in mind, Maddgodd81. it would at least be less painful.
Make plans to stay up for some reason. Doesn’t matter what, You will inevitably fall asleep mere minutes before the planned event.
maybe i’ll make plans to go to sleep at a certain time, DK, and see if i fall asleep beforehand. that’d be awesome. 🙂
Figures that I’m not first…
Don’t need to look up Michigan J. Frog, it’s a classic. I wonder what the heck’s addled ‘bot’s brain? Could it be the aliens? Or is it something more… sinister? 😀
glad you didn’t have to look up MJF, Insectoid! i almost put the link to the YouTube of him, but i figured: if someone doesn’t know who he is, i’m gonna make them work for it a bit. 😉
as far as something more sinister… well. you’ll just have to wait to find out. heheh.
I imagine most of the people here are old enough to have watched all those old shows.
Or would that be, sis-nister?
ha! good guess, but i’ll tell you that Xinda isn’t the reason the Scarf’s depleted at the moment.
Oh, I am letting out a NnnnNggh! That’s why I’m awake. *rueful grin*
i’ll be sure to not let out any NnnnNgghs between now and hitting the sack, then. 🙂
the vein on Bots neck in the last panel is awesome 😀 poor little sleep depraved Bot, he is so nervous he cant even show off 😀
As per usual, my computer hates me 😀 Eddie
heh. you need to show that computer who’s boss, Eddie! and glad you noticed/liked bot’s neck vein; he’s definitely stressing, but at least he didn’t go into Rage Mode.
The vein on your neck is about to burst in that last panel, so CHILL OUT!
You have a secret symbiotes. Deal with it. You cant blame them for trying to avoid Area 51 dissection tables. Which, by the way, you would probably paid a visit to too.
Now go get your beauty sleep.
Cornfathers *blink* – love it. And its great how cool he is about whole psychosis thing – probably want to make up for ditching bot during weekend.
i think it’d be wise for bot to take your advice and chill before he has a stroke, Maryz! as for the Scarf – yes, it’s possible it doesn’t want to make itself known, but there might be an even simpler explanation…
glad you liked the *blink*! at this point the Cornfather thinks bot has lost it, most likely. 🙂
“Hello my honey, hello my baby…”
Hello! ma ragtime gal
“Send me a kiss by wire…”
Baby, ma heart’s on fire!
Even scarfs need to rest, right?
could be, TPC!
too much gaming time… power levels are down. I’m giving her all she’s got cap’n but there’s not enough dylithium crystals!
definite possibility that the Scarf’s just out of “dilithium,” jiro. in which case we’d have to see if bot can pull a Scotty and squeeze more juice out of it!
Or the scarf is just messing with ‘bot. Possessed or not, it’s still a Xindacraft.
heheh. yes, it would be very Xinda-like for the Scarf to just be trying to drive bot crazy, Sarah W.
Or there’s just not enough power left…poor ‘Bot! He’s sure been through the wringer with the “Believe it or not” kind of events! Maybe he needs to go hide at a beach for a while…or in the mountains, since the aliens found him at the beach once-upon-a…
Hope your insomnia clears up…I’ve always found NyQuil to be useful in that regard, in extreme cases.
bot has been using the Scarf all weekend, T, so it would make sense that it’s just depleted at this point. we’ll find out on Monday! and yes – bot could totally use a vacation after this. the mountains do seem a safe bet, at least for now. 🙂
thanks for the well wishes for the insomnia – tried cough syrup and melatonin (on separate nights) but i’m starting to think i might need something prescription based. didn’t want to go there but it’s getting ridiculous now.
Yeah, three strait days of no sleep have all kinds of negative effects. I’d almost bet that Jefbot could sleep for an entire day at this point.
I’m lucky in being able to sleep in just about any comfortable position as long as I’m tired.(thanks dad) I’m also lucky that I don’t often require that much sleep before becoming active again. I do still need my sleep though.
I hate it when that happens. 😉
me too, Alana!
Gooooood Morning Boteers!
Wow Exhaulted One, that vein in the last panel looks dangerous. Inner Peace, Inner Peace, Inner Peace!
As DK says SERENITY NOW!
Bendito Jefbot, he just can’t seem to win.
morning, Pixie! SERENITY NOW!
yeah, if bot’s neck vein bursts, i don’t think the Cornfather will be too happy about it. and it does seem as if bot can’t win; if nothing else he had a weekend of gaming with an awesome, yarn-symbiote, tho! 🙂
I think the scarf is definitely pulling a Michigan J Frog (but of course, I could be totally wrong). I didn’t know that was the frog’s name – thanks for the info. Jefbot’s gonna hurt himself straining like that. 😉
Has the Cornfather always had that curly little chest hair? Tee hee. It’s so cute! I have to go back and look for it in other strips now.
Now I see – he’s wearing a different shirt! It’s not his usual v-neck with the stripes down the shoulders. I noticed that a while back his logo became less obviously a pot leaf, but I didn’t realize he had different shirts in the strip.
yeah, it’s not really a pot leaf anymore. it’s more a green, cloud-thingy with eyes. i should probably come up with a name for it. heheh.
and i think the Cornfather’s only had 3-4 wardrobe changes in the entire strip, if memory serves. it’s only cuz he went to the beach that he’s wearing the tank at the moment.
if the Scarf’s pulling an MJF, that really might send bot over the edge, shanna! and yep, the Cornfather’s always had that one, curly chest hair, but you can generally only see it when he’s wearing that tank top, as he did in the Beach storyline.
I believe the scarf has stage fright
Love the avatar by the way.
We all do now and then, DJ. It’s part of being a guy!
it’s a possibility, dj. maybe the Cornfather just scared it a bit.
and i agree with Maryz – nice avatar!
“Hello my baby. Hello my honey. Hello my RAGtime gal.” Damn RAG scarf screws up Bots plans to take over the world! Time to get serious bot… As a wise Emperor once said “Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.”
but didn’t bot just learn the lesson not to “give in to anger,” Slave1!? …or maybe he just mastered the Dark Side over the weekend. hmm…
See, kiddies! Don’t stay up all night playing video games or you will start hallucinating!
that’s a good lesson for kids to learn, Stan. 🙂
The magic powers of the scarf will not show it’s presence in the presence of The Cornfather… Or maybe you just need to get some sleep? I can’t believe this was all from a lack of sleep… OR worse, just a dream?!?
bot did dabble in controlling his dreams, FunnyShaffer, and he is sleep-deprived, but you can bet i won’t end this storyline with the groaner, “…and then he woke up.” 🙂
damn blackout…could not get my third place….never mnd….there is monday
heheh. yep, you have an extra day a week to try for third, jf#300. at least for the rest of this month. 🙂
While it was important for ‘bot to learn to control his rage, perhaps he should have spent a little time learning to control/dominate the scarf. As it is, I’m pretty sure that it’s the one calling the shots here, and that’s NOT a good thing, considering the evil sister origins.
I just hope that I’m right and that we get to see SCARFbot versus Cel in a Battle Royale, culminating in ‘bot almost destroying her and sacrificing his newfound powers to stop the scarf’s rampage. They then live happily ever after… Until, of course, Xinda knits them matching sweaters and they proceed to attempt to take over the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry, got a little carried away there… *rueful grin* 🙂
he was learning control over the Scarf at the same time he was learning to control his Rage, Maddgodd81, so he should be able to make it work right now. something’s definitely amiss.
as for SCARFbot vs. cel: i like it! not saying it will happen, but if someone wrote the fanfic, i’d read it. 🙂
Methinks I heard singing before Cornfather entered, but it wasn’t the bot. Did you hear it?
Everybody do the Michigan rag….everybody do the Michigan rag!
What’s that little top hat and cane behind the couch? And why does it say Michigan J. Scarf?
i thought i heard something too, but i guess i was mistaken, Sean Luke. hmmm…
Easy bot, you’ll bust a blood vessel.
yeah, he def needs to take a chill pill or two, Anime fan.
Maybe it’s just exhausted.
valid theory, dchorror.
Michigan J Frog???? My god, what a brilliant call! Love it. And I LOVE this strip! Made me die laughing.
thanks for the love and laughs, man!
Don’t let it bother you, ‘Bot. I can never use my powers in front of people either. Me and Invisible Boy should start hanging out.
good to know it’s not just bot then, DK!
I get the feeling that bot is hallucinating all of this…
that might be the case, steve, especially since bot was playing videogames all weekend, nonstop. we’ll see…
Piece of junk computer. I haven’t been able to check up on this site (or almost any site for that matter) for the last two days due to excessive lag and freezing. I’m serious, for every five minutes I was able to do stuff I had to wait at least ten for the computer to unfreeze. Talk about infuriating.
Considering that Jefbot has been awake for the last three days AND playing video games the whole time, I’m not surprised that he can’t do it. If I remember correctly, if you go more than three days without sleep you risk some very dangerous health risks such as certain parts of your body shutting down on you.
