Lackadaisy Arithmophobia by tracyjb Lackadaisy Arithmophobia by tracyjb
The noodle dialogue won't make any sense unless you've read the previous comic (Lackadaisy Spaghetti). Then and only then will it make...uh, marginally more sense. =P
Tune in for future comic installments when things happen. Yes, actual things! I promise you things. Things beyond just conversation, at least.

Mitzi and Rocky.

The adding machine bit seems to be confusing some people. It you read the comic intro here in my gallery, or the comic entitled Lackadaisy Formaldehyde, it should -hopefully- be more apparent why she chucked it. (reading everything in chronological order might help too...check for that)

Also, Mitzi's magical side-swapping whiskers seem to be just as annoying/confusing. That's a stylistic thing, really. Her whiskers overlapping her cheeks tend to detract from the soft look her face is supposed to have, so I usually draw them only where they don't interfere much with her face.

Ohgawd, your end panels are priceless...
gwenyre Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010

Brittaney-R Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2010
LOL she just throws the adding machine back out the window NICE
You know, this particular page got me thinking: Where does Rocky live? I mean, is it really safe for him to live alone? Who would have possibly sold/rented him a house or apartment? It doesn't seem like he lives with Freckle and Aunt Nina, either, because if he was I don't think he'd be living at all. XD

I guess it's just hard to imagine his home life.

Quite frankly She'd probab;y look just fine with no whiskers at all.

I was just rereading this, and it occurred to me...where does Rocky live?
sirbackup Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009
I´ve got an picture that he´s like job addict, he doesnt have home, he does illegal business with that lackadaisy place, and whenever he aint helping the place to get on its feets again, he sleeps by the car or somewhere where ever he might be.

Where can I get a can of cricket juice?

I'm in the mood for a little crazy.

Whoa, hold on, time out, stop the clock, hold the tomatoes AND the anchovies!

Miss M is actually MISSES M?



Well, I guess it's true: you DO learn something new every day.

We have Misses M, but, what happened to Mister M?

She really doesnt like that adding machine does she? poor poor adding machine...
yourlittleirs Featured By Owner May 31, 2007
no, no, not linguine, orzo! ORZO, YOU IDIOT, ORZO!
Malevolent-Mayhem Featured By Owner May 3, 2007
Like ... linguini! Wonderful comic, m'dear. Aside from that delightful adding-machine bit, I really admire the use of shading here. I dont know, it just really popped out in this update, as well as how actions seem to flow from panel to panel.
MsDevin92 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2007
Except for his more...insane parts, Rocky, for some reason, makes me think of that guy from Cats Don't Dance :confused: Maybe it's his sheer goofiness :heart:
reshichan Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2007
I wasn't aware she HAD whiskers till you mentioned it, though I believe they do make her look more masculine

The scenery is absolutely awesome, as to be expected! *grins*

You go, Rocky! Be linguine!
Zurite Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007

More like linguine! LOL!! Wow, this is so awesome, I can't stop reading, I love the tone you use for it as well, it just adds to that 1920's feel, is it all hand drawn apart from the text, or is the colour added on the computer? I can't tell, sometimes it seems a bit of both.
Balade101 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2006  Student Traditional Artist
Wonderfully done!! :aww:
clowve Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2006
i :heart: this comic and i think the lines that you some up with are really catchy, but hey, emm, i kinda noticed on the first row, the scene where she dunks the adding machine outside, Mitzi's whiskers are on the right side of her face, but throughout other coloumns, her whiskers are on the left..^^;

other than that, i can't wait for the next installment! ^^v
tracyjb Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2006
Um. Read the last paragraph in image description. =)

great comics you've got

LadyHatter Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2006
mitzi's so cute!!
HealingBlight Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2006
2 Questions:
1- Where do you come up with the titles?
2- How long do you think it will take before coming up with a title will take more effort than making the comic itself? :P

Lackadaisy Supercalifragilisticexpialidociousficati on?
tracyjb Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2006
The titles? They're just weird words I've collected (in a sense) over the years.
Hehe. I don't think the titles will ever be as much work as the comic..=)
HealingBlight Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2006
Yeah, you put alot of work into the comics, probably the most I've seen (judging by the quality*), but the titles are always a nice touch, instead of a clinical number. :)
Furious-Cat Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2006
Last panel cracked me up x3
sharkyharpy Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2006
I saw the title and just... had to break my vow, I laughed so much... I hope you don't mind my using that term, 'arithmophobia', among friends... I'd NEVER steal your copyright!!!
jediiwakura Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2006
Rocky has my love. No matter what noodle he is. X3
