Yep . . .That IS what he said.

It’s that time of year, again! When your eyes are assaulted by red and pink in all the shop windows, and when the conditioning to associate chocolate with sex kicks into high gear. (Man, I could use some chocolate, right about now…)

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And in honor of that, we here are TMXS are taking off our lazy hat and putting on our re-purpose apron. That’s right, we are going to give you a countdown to the big day itself, when we will introduce our first new comic of 2015!

Remember this?

don't count if you're drunk

And it’s not that I’ve been totally lazy, if you’re wondering where the regular posts went. (Dare I flatter myself that you’ve wondered?) In the few months since regular updates stopped happening I moved countries, fulfilled two separate performance contracts in different states and saw a workshop production of a show that I’m writing go up across the pond. #humblebrag

But really the reason why I took a break was a nice dose of heartache. No, not another failed attempt at a relationship (although that happened, too), but some genuine TMXS-related heartache. We got rejected for a grant that would have made TMXS: The Series become reality right at your fingertips, and after riding that roller coaster of emotions it was time for a little break.

But like anyone who ignores the notion that insanity is the doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, we’re back! After all, isn’t that what love is all about?


This week’s quote is almost sweet. She’s jealous. They were at a crappy party. And he’s in love with her. Actually.

figure out how to tell youIf he comes to terms with dropping the “L word” by surrounding himself with other women, I wonder what his proposal’s going to be like?


Wow! Turns out finishing a masters program makes one busy. But I’m happy to report the degree is complete, and I’ve bid goodbye to bonny Scotland and returned to the hustle and bustle of New York City. And that means back to business! We’ll be switching our posts to every Tuesday and Thursday, so that I can expend some of my TMXS energy on developing some new plans for the site. More to come on that soon.

But now, the reason why we’re all here. The quote of the day! So, are you ready?

get ready

In all honesty, some people take a long-ass time to get ready. She could be one of those people. But this guy still sounds like a tool. Nap time? Wake up, dude, and recognize all that fuss was for you! Next, she’ll take less time and he’ll tell her she’s letting herself go.

There are several elements to this submission that (for me, at least) make it one of our most confusing, ever.

even though i don't want to

Wait a minute… did he just accuse her of being a rapist? Is she a rapist? If the genders were reversed, would we perceive this scenario differently? Somehow, since she was the one who submitted this quote, I suspect she had no idea he wasn’t into their physical relationship. But seriously. What the hell is going on there? Why was he having sex with her? Guys, gals, folks in between: don’t have sex with people you don’t want to have sex with! Relationships are complicated enough.

Or what if she was, like, his dominatrix or something, and this was part of their role play….

Gag.

couldn't be me

Ohmigosh! As a matter of fact, it was! How’d you guess? You must read my mind. That’s because we are purrrrfect together. Best pickup line, ever! Here are my panties.

You’re studying! Or working. Or otherwise busy. So really, it’s your fault that I’m flirting with other women.

Also… MySpace? Seriously? This must be a dated quote, or this guy’s flirting skills are back in 2005.

Children clearly fall under the category of Very Big Deal. Nevermind your own, putting up with¬†somebody else’s kids¬†would be¬†a lot to ask.

your children in my life

But there has to be a better way to say this.

Sometimes, it’s just nice to know you’re appreciated.

puts up with you

Chances are, that could be¬†true. In fact, I think I’ve even¬†seen quirky Valentine’s cards with the same¬†sentiment written on them. But unless you get away with that kind of humor, you don’t get away with that kind of humor. And since this quote got submitted to Things My Ex Said, I’m guessing he didn’t get away with it, in the long run.


And we’re back to our regular¬†posts this week! Thanks to all who have been showing the love for the TMXS Cabaret!

Ah, the extra complication that comes from still living with your ex.

living with the ex

Might be worth breaking that lease, just saying.
