And we're back! I wonder what this is that she picked up...
(I realize now I made a sad mistake in the colors of this object and her phone- It is *not* her phone she has there, but rather the thing that hits the back wall in the second panel.)

I do so love visiting my grandma. She is, however, a compulsive feeder. Majorly! And mostly for junk food. It bothers her quite a bit that I don't snack a lot or keep much junk around. She also thinks I'm too thin.
So whenever I visit and take her shopping, she insists on getting me such. And you can't say 'no' to my grandma- Even at almost 97 years old, she can be hella stubborn! She will stand in the candy aisle and refuse to move until I've picked out a sufficient amount of goodies. It's really pretty funny, and so, this is my latest haul. I'd think I was set for several months, but grandma would disagree!

Now I have the goldfish jingle stuck in my head...


Oooo! More mystery!
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:35 PM edit delete reply
Goldfish have to be my most favoritest snack. I've actually never seen a commercial, though!

She looks really calm after witnessing such event, makes you wonder if she's hiding something.

Junk food galore! XD
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:35 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha, the suspicion theories begin!

Yup! Here come the cavities D:

Definitely not something you think you'll start your day with for sure.

But what is the mysterious object she picks up?
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:35 PM edit delete reply
Nope! Makes me glad I don't live in a city...
I wonder~
Miaubol 14th Oct 2016, 8:11 AM edit delete reply
Apocalypse is on? o.O

She figured out some unpleasant truth in the second last panel (?)

Yes, I first thought she was checking her phone... ;)

Daaaaaw there are kitties :D
Yes, that haul is enough for several months, or weeks at least. I know I can eat a whole lot of this stuff within just a short period of time, but then it's enough for a good, good while.
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:36 PM edit delete reply
I wonder if it isn't too far off... Hehe.

Yup! Of course my kitties are never far away ;) I'm all set~

Things that go boom are usually not good.
Dang, you got a sweet haul of junk food. Old people can be stubborn, but hey they can get away with a lot since they've already been through a lot.
I remember eating lots of Mexican sweet bread when I was younger. I was skinner back then. Now, not so much :)
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:47 PM edit delete reply
I'd say not good, no, hehe.
Haha, true- We let her get away with it. It makes her happy to spoil the family, hahah.
(Ah, sounds delicious!)

I love seeing the world before the apocalypse. It's hella fun!

I hope you enjoy eating those cats you got in your junkfood haul.
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:48 PM edit delete reply
True! Well, fun or depressing, depending on how you look at it.:D

Hahhahaha! The cats won't be eaten ;)
MadJak91 14th Oct 2016, 5:28 PM edit delete reply
I dunno. The girl is hella suspicious. Obviously not thinking she caused the whole apocalypse LMAO but what is she hiding?
Pretty awkward reactions given the situation. Hm.

So I guess it really is a look back at the normal world. Looking forward to what actually happened :O

I approve of your haul AND grandma approving ;)
Really good to see she is doing so well. Sometimes age is just a number.
Hindbodes 15th Oct 2016, 4:49 AM edit delete reply
Oh my god she does greed shopping too! I'm on the verge of doing one of my own next Friday.
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:53 PM edit delete reply
@Jak: Hahahaha! I just knew you'd be suspecting her of something :D
Thank you, I'm glad you look forward to it~

She really is doing well considering her age! She always comes with for the grocery shopping instead of leaving it to me, and she moves fast.

@Edward: Greed shopping? Ah, just buying a buncha junkfood? Sounds like a good plan for Halloween :D

I didn't even notice the image in the news post until I saw Madjak.

Basically, I came up with a name for getting hauls like that one (before I even considered calling them hauls) with very little restraint or consideration for my physical form. Usually a bit bigger. I call it greed shopping because I used to frequently buy an excessive amount of junk food and candy that I probably never even needed, and I still do it a bit now. Only difference is that currently I slow the frequency down with my Recession Points System, making me binge on candy way less often.

Can't imagine doing it with non-NZ confectioneries though.
MadJak91 16th Oct 2016, 3:29 PM edit delete reply
Ed, send me some of that NZ candy. I am missing candy experience from that area :Y
Seabiscuit 16th Oct 2016, 11:08 PM edit delete reply
@Edward Ah! I gotcha. That does sound fun! :D

@Jak ;~~~; You should get some delicious candies off amazon~
Hindbodes 17th Oct 2016, 12:40 AM edit delete reply
I don't know how to send candy by post yet, but I would. I could be the NZ Candy Correspondent. Send people shit like this:


And the really weird licorice combinations that some apparently haven't heard of.

Terrorist attack? I wonder what is that thing she got there...

Whoa! That is a lot of snacks. Please don't eat those kitties. D:
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:54 PM edit delete reply
Nothing good, no matter what happened, probably! I wonder...

Hahaha. The kitties are perfectly safe! If anything, they want to help me with the snacks.;)

Ahhh, I see war is possibly beginning now, Lakebiscuit...
Seabiscuit 15th Oct 2016, 7:56 PM edit delete reply
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams...

-snerk- Hahaha, Lakebiscuit~ That kitty~ :D

Hehe, aw thanks, I'm glad you like her! :D
demcleod 16th Oct 2016, 10:39 AM edit delete reply
Now I want junk food lol.

This page is pretty. I like the coloring! :-)
Seabiscuit 16th Oct 2016, 11:10 PM edit delete reply

Aw, thank you very much! :D
Outlaw 16th Oct 2016, 10:48 PM edit delete reply
Oh man, I'm digging this new story arc. Am I to assume this will show us the "pre-apocalypse" era of the world? If so! I'm stoked! HECK... Even if it's not, I'm still stoked! STOKED X1000.
Seabiscuit 16th Oct 2016, 11:14 PM edit delete reply
Aww, thank you very much, Outlaw! I'm so happy that you're excited, I hope it doesn't disappoint :D You are possibly very close...~
HeSerpenty 17th Oct 2016, 5:53 PM edit delete reply
I feel like she has something to do with that burning truck and all this commotion. Maybe I am observing something really obvious LOL
Seabiscuit 20th Oct 2016, 9:31 PM edit delete reply
Pffft! Everyone is so suspicious of this poor kid! ;)

Congrats, I have no clue what is going on...

Excellent. I feel accomplished~
