This is so far the low point of Mostly About Food. Updating once a month, what's that supposed to mean? Not once a week, as intended, not even twice a month. One comic in April and then another one a month later... Well, yeah, I was on vacation around Easter and worked on some other comics and other features for this site, but still.
Maybe I wouldn't be as disappointed with myself if much of my time away from the drawing board had not been dedicated to a certain character named Snake. You see, he is the star of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which is a video game I got a couple of months ago and can't let go of it. Now I've played it through twice and the urge isn't all that strong anymore, but it's not completely gone. It's a great game, I can't understand why I didn't get it straight away when it came in 2004. Then it wouldn't have disturbed my drawing activities now.
Why am I explaining this to you? Being smart and sensible people with intelligent hobbies, you don't even know who Snake or what a Metal Gear is. I guess I have to admit that I'm a geek. Or if not a geek - I have no interest in or understanding of any kind of technology - but a freak. Yes, I'm a freak and I like to play. Games are fun.
