This is Goodbye! (Special April Fool's Edition Blog)

It's been fun, and I'll miss you all! But things have come up in real life that makes it impossible for me to stick around any longer. Since this is so sudden, and I really do love you all, I think I owe you an explanation.

Pretty simply, I got a job! I know usually I say that I want to be a writer, or a doctor, but this is one of my earliest dreams: I'm actually working with NASA!!!! (On the ground though...not really astronaut material unfortunately). I don't really talk about it much, but I do have a lot of experience. It helps that I'm not a younger gal like I usually claim, I'm actually that 40-year-old guy your parents warned you about. Sorry. I didn't want to admit it since comics are usually thought of as a young-people's game and well...no one really wants to talk to the old guy. No offense to any of my brothers here, but you know what I'm talking about.

Though actually, I'm still not being honest with you. I'm sorry, it's habit. I've been hiding these things for so long, it's so hard to talk about them! The real reason I'm working with NASA: I have a fair amount of experience with space-flight, as I said. That experience comes in the form of an unfortunate joyride I took in my younger days, which ended with my crashing on this planet (I'm no Superman, haha!). Not being designed for this atmosphere, I'm a pretty sickly individual, thus why I complain of not feeling well so much of the time. Living in the land of space-squids and cosmic horrors (to your puny human minds, haha!) you can understand my fascination with H.P. Lovecraft.

But Icarus, (which is about as close as you can come to pronouncing my REAL name, by the way) you may ask, what about your guinea pigs? I live in a lab you dolts...why do you think I go through so many guinea pigs? It's not rocket science (yes it is! LOL).

Anyway, as I said, I love you all, I'll miss you, Live Long and Prosper! (sorry, little joke, couldn't help myself).

@blackreaper: When you're about to be taken into permanent government secrecy there's a limit to how many days you can post about it. :'(

It will forever be my regret that I only learned today.

The Lovecraft part gave it away.

@pyrogram: Oh come on, this is worth at LEAST two points. >_>

@billy_batson: If THAT'S the part that gave it away I may need to seriously review my life choices. O_o

Still not buying it. This is kind of cruel for the people who are, though.

Yeah, I know. I keep trying to make it ridiculous, but eehhh. I guess I could post a pic of myself with the caption APRIL FOOLS, but I don't really want to.

@blood1991: That was the point, I think this was an excellent joke. >_>

@pyrogram: Yeah, but I found it myself later. <_<

@icarusflies: You might had gone through too many guinea pigs and we begun to feel they're more than just pets to you. And...and we had to run away from you!! Now, it's too late, you see? *Runs away again*

Well, I never know you that well. I know you like Herbert West and the Re-Animator (guess it all make sense now :D), it sounds like you're entering the best chapter in life. You're getting what you always wanted!! I hope you'll do really well, make best friends once you get there.

I'll stop being weird now, it's weird to miss someone you hardly know.

Good luck with the guinea pigs. Save some of them....for later!! :P

@icarusflies: Not gonna lie though, encase I was wrong I read your post just to be sure you weren't really leaving. 0.0 Funny with the twists in it. xD

Posted by Surkit

@icarusflies: lmaooo you got me man, I took it serious until five seconds ago

Posted by Icarusflies

@fuchsia_nightingale: Wheek wheek!!! :D

@samimista: Thank you!!! I had considered a few other similar pranks, but I thought this was maybe a bit more fun than pretending I was actually a guinea pig, or living in the alps, or something like that.

@surkit: I am the prank MASTER. ;)

You really had me going for a moment, then something didn't seem quite right, and then by the time I finished the post I knew something funny had to be going on... Didn't make the connection until I started reading the comments though xD

Not sure if legit or trolling. Going with trolling!
