Meaning of Life
on September 17, 2012 at 12:00 am
The meaning of life may be elusive, but the little things we take for granted are often more important than the goals we actively pursue. So take the time to have some chocolate and smell the rockets.
Red, from M3, adopted some Wombies a while back, and they took a trip to Morocco to meet up with their fellow Wombies for a summer get together. You can read Red’s original account of their trip, Wombies’ Postcard from Morocco, on Red’s blog.
OK, I give up, if it ain’t chocolates or rockets what is it? 42?
I don’t know! But I don’t think anyone else knows, either.
Fraz can you keep me posted. I am too lazy to go searching.
Yep, me too, call me when you find out.
Yes and tell me too, I don’t want to be missing out on anything you know? 🙂
Now everyone’s depending on me, and I don’t know!
I think chocolate might be the best answer. At least it makes your tummy happy!
That is good enough for me Fraz, well done 🙂
I think Fraz and Winky are right.
Let’s all have more chocolate to celebrate, then!
But, but, but, what about wine gums 🙁
The meaning of life could be wine gums, too. That’d be just as good!
Yes and don’t forget the pancakes 🙂
Yeah, and milkshakes, too!
Andro what is life without chocolates and in your case the hot ones covered in choclates lol
You mean like hot peppers?
yes fraz totally 😉
I have never had hot peppers covered in chocolate before but I will give them a try 🙂
I will have the toffees and fudges and you can have the orange, strawberry and frazberry one’s 🙂
Frazberry is my favourite flavour! Even though I never heard of it before!
It’s a great choice because Frazberry is a flavour that doesn’t require a Genie in which to enjoy it, you just think of all the wonderful flavours you enjoy the most and when you eat your very own Frazberry that is how it tastes 🙂
That’s even better than I thought!
It’s so good I can’t describe it!
Frazberry is the best flavour ever!!
A good Bavarian beer?
I’d rather have wine gums!
Beer, wine…what’s the difference
I will definitely have both Japanese Ghost, hey that kind of rhymes doesn’t it? 🙂 Okay let’s all have some more chocolate fudge and extra large wine gums 🙂
And pancakes and milkshakes, too! We might not know the meaning of life, but we’ll be happy!
Okay I will start sharing them out and you know what that means? 🙂 Ten for you and five for me, fifteen for you and eight for me, I knew that I should have listened more at school 🙁
As long as the plate continues round the table…
And as long as the plates never run out!
At my house there are two. When it makes it round the table, it is replaced by a full one…
That’s the way to do it for sure!
Red can we all come over to your house to stay again, I like the two plates of chocolates around the table idea 🙂
Door is always open. If you were in on this week’s Flash, you got invited to the M3 potluck. 😉
I didn’t know you were flashing anything so you can understand how disappointed I am to learn of this here and now 🙁
Hey stop being so naughty I will call in and take a look, I mean a peep, I mean… Oh you know what I mean? 😉 lol
Of course I do 😉
I like your math better than what they teach me at school!
I knew that you would say that 🙂
Plus your food math is a lot more yummy!
Yes I am working on that
so it is yummier for me too 🙂
I don’t really think your math needs any work, actually.
Yes I figured that you would say that 🙂
I don’t know, but I’ve never had beer gums.
Yeah, I don’t think they’ll replace wine gums!
That is a relief.
I notice Chris likes long walks on short beaches, I wonder if he has tried a long walk off a short plank on one of Fraz’s Pirate Ships yet? 🙂
I’ll ask Chris if he’d like to try that!
He said no.
Chris should get a girlfriend.
😯 and disappoint all his female admirers?
Loon I didn’t know that you had feelings for Chris, and i thought you only had eyes for me 🙁 lol
Now, now, now, no fighting boys, there is enough to go around 🙂 ….. Shut up Bearman !!!!!
So do you like long walks on short beaches?
Loon, I can’t wait 🙂
I have admirers? Female admirers?
Yes I have a few Zombie girls in my realm that he might take a fancy to, actually it could be the other way around and then he will need to run very fast 🙁 Not a good outlook with his track record is it Bearman? 🙁
That’s probably the women I’d attract. Dead stinky zombies.
Don’t worry I will sort you out a nice looking girlfriend, she will be a delicuiously sexy… Hey I can’t say any more or you won’t be impressed when you meet her 🙂
I have to admit I’ve never had good luck with zombie women.
Well don’t give up just yet,
there is plenty of time you
Yeah, a month and a half till Halloween.
Wow I will have to get my skates on, you need a girlfriend before then and even though there are lots of choices, you need one that will not eat you for breakfast 🙁
I may not have high hopes, but I do have high standards. I insist my girlfriend does not try to eat my brains!
She has to find them first, sorry Chris that’s a bad joke 🙂 It’s a good job that you know that I am just kidding 🙂
I get that a lot from the little furballs, too.
I think Chris has a problem with girls. They all seem to leave here screaming.
Oh dear I should have read this before promising him a girlfriend, but never mind I know a few other dodgy, I mean a few wicked one’s that he might get along with 🙂
I hope they bring chocolates!
They are Zombies, but I am sure that
there will be a few finger rolls left over 🙁
OK, well Chris can have them!
Will he want plenty of ketchup? 🙂
I think I’ll pass on the Zombie fingers, thanks.
How about the big toe surprise? 🙂
I think that’s more a Zombie treat.
I like Red’s adopted Wombies, and just look at what they are wearing? 🙂 Actually I think that Fraz and Twink would look good in those outfits 🙂
I think I like my Moroccan prince outfit better!
Yes but it could be a nice alternative and as a bonus you get to drive a OO7 car of your choice 🙂
James Bond’s car?? I’ll wear it, I’ll wear it!
I knew that you would change your mind 🙂
I need to get them all racing gear to ride in Bear’s car.
Is it a racing car? I like racing cars!
Yes, it is a race car!
Oh boy! Maybe I can get a ride in it the next time I visit!
I will get him to take you all to the track.
I’ll bring my helmet!
You absolutely need one. Safety first!
Plus you get to go faster with a helmet!
I want to go to the track too you know? 🙂
I’m sure Red would let you join us!
We are going to have the track to ourselves, so we can all go.
I hope I can race Andro!
I wonder if he has his own F1 car?
No I don’t but what I do have is a Suzuki and you know how fast they can go Fraz? Okay you won that race, and that race and that race and… 🙂
Aw, I was hoping you had a race car.
Maybe I can get Binky to add some rockets to your Suzuki. Then it’d be a Suzukkkiiiiiii!
I like the sound of that great idea Fraz, thanks 🙂
I just have to get Binky to do it!
May need more than just a helmet…
I’ve got goggles, too!
The meaning of Life?
Are we talkin’ about the cereal or the magazine?
The meaning of life is to fulfill the purpose we were created for. The struggle is to find that purpose.
Oh. I dunno what my purpose is. Maybe to be president?
Being president is not the destination but part of the journey “my little grasshopper”.
(Lot’s of folks won’t get the little grashopper reference.)
Oh, okay. I think. Adults can be very confusing! First they think I’m a frog, and now I’m a grasshopper!
That’s a great answer, Bo!
Thanks Peter. That is my real opinion. Some times you have to step away from the humor and be serious and I truly believe this.
I figured you did. And it’s a very insightful answer. I think, though, that sometimes after we know our purpose, the struggle is to make it work.
The problem is to conform ourselves to our purpose instead of trying to conform our desires into our purpose.
Now if you will excuse me I am due back on my seat at the mountain top. The crowds should be there soon.
That’s a good way to look at it. Prophet Bo has some wise answers.
You’re telling me 🙂
Chocolate and love get my vote!
Chocolate is the meaning of my life!
Winky we all know how chocolate rules your life, but can we have some too, we are all getting really hungry now 🙂
Of course! My chocolate factory is always open to visitors and taste-testers! Well, except when it’s closed. Like at night.
We need a 24hr Winky store next 🙂 Yay
Maybe you know some night owls that could run the store at night. I’d just fall asleep. (And no Zombies!)
Skeletons do not need sleep. And they do not eat, so they would not eat the chocolate.
Skeletons might work. As long as they don’t scare the customers away.
No one is really afraid of skeletons. They are not going to come after you…they have no guts. Or so Miss V says.
That’s true. And if we dress up the skeletons with bow ties and red clown noses, it’d make them look friendlier.
I have boxes of bow ties!
You can help us dress up those skeletons, then!
I think some gloves, a scarf
and a ski mask might help too 🙂
We could try that, too. As long as it’s not a scary ski mask!
No I was thinking of a yellow and lime striped with matching flip flops, actually that sounds a lot scarier than Hannibal’s so we will just use a plain orange one for starters and see how it goes 🙂
Maybe a ski mask with Kermit on it or something would be less scary.
Or a ski mask with Chris on it, nooooooooo far too scary that thought 🙂 Poor Chris I hope that he doesn’t notice that one…
I don’t think he will.
Maybe the skeletons could wear a ski mask with a skeleton on it!
Yes I agree but in what order? 🙂
If you love chocolate, I don’t think it matters.
I think MY life would be a heck of a lot better with all of that stuff. I’d LOVE to shoot CHOCOLATE ROCKETS on a SHORT BEACH! W.C.C.
Maybe I should try that. But Winky would end up eating the rockets before we could shoot them off.
Great comic, we do all forget to take the time to enjoy life and what is has to offer.
We certainly do tend to forget some of the important things in life.
I think it’s time for another one of our parties, but don’t forget the party hats 🙂
We never forget the party hats! Unless we’re wearing our pirate hats!
Yes and you always have a vast selection of party hats too so no problemo 🙂
I try to keep my party guests happy!
With all those chocolates on
offer they are never sad 🙂 🙂
I hope not! And you help them to have fun, too!
Yes we can play some Pirate games 🙂
And go treasure hunting again!
You know, a lot of times, the best things in life are taken for granted.
That’s very, very true.
Hmmm… how about a lovely ride on a rocket made of chocolate with a nice soft beach as a crashing, er, landing zone?!
I could go for that!
Wow I like the sound of that, noooooo not the crashing part but I definitely like the chocolate rocket bit 🙂
I hope the rocket part doesn’t melt the chocolate part!
I hadn’t thought of that one Fraz, that’s your superb command of logic filtering through again 🙂 Excellent…
If the beach were made of marshmallows….
I’d eat it!
Wait until after you crash the rocket. If the burners melt the chocolate, it would be a huge chocolaty melty marshmallow gooey mess.
Yummy! It’d be like a giant beach S’more!
I can just picture Winky hoovering up all that gooey marshmallow in one yummy mouthful 🙂
I think it might take me a couple of mouthfuls, actually.
No just one, we know how big your… I mean we know how much you enjoy your marshmallows 🙂
You’re right, but I didn’t want to seem greedy.
I’m a good thinker!
We all know that Fraz 🙂
Well at least you know it, anyway!
I think a lot of peeps know you’re a whizz at thinking things through, especially when it comes down to choosing the best chocolates 🙂
I’m pretty good at planning parties, too!
Yes and catching and trapping the Zombies 🙂
Maybe I could start a business. Zombie Busters!
I agree…enjoy whatever makes you happy.
Have a terrific day filled with chocolate. 🙂
I definitely could enjoy some chocolates!
Well, Winky at least you have several answers to choose from. (although, I would steer away from the Rocket answer).
Life is rockets for some of us.
Wrestling matches and a big bowl of ice cream.
I’ll take the ice cream, but I’m not sure about the wrestling.
I take both on Mondays, Friday, and sometimes on Sunday’s for free pay per view.
I think maybe Winky likes wrestling. I’m not sure.
Chew toys and a warm blanket are what life is all about.
Are the chew toys made out of wine gums? They’re chewy!
Sure, those are the best kind. They make my mouth water a lot too.
I should get some chew toys, then!
You should and when you mouth is watering and it gets all over the chewy toy, then drys, I can go back to it for more flavor, unless moms washes it before I get back to it.
If they were wine gum flavored, I think I might end up eating them instead of just chewing on them!
Milkbones…lots of milkbone!
Milk bones aren’t bad. But I’d like them better if they were chocolate coated.
I agree, but ma won’t let me have them.
It’s too bad doggies can’t have chocolate. I think I’d die without chocolate!
It’s not easy sometimes especially when I can smell moms chocolate ice cream when she has it.
That must be hard! I guess you get other treats, though.
Chocolate is the only thing that matters in life.
You’ve got that right!
Yeah, we’re closely related you and I.
Yep! We sure are. That’s why we’re such good friends!
Learning, Sharing and cloths shopping is the true meaning of life.
We need to spend a day together!
Yes, we must get our Fall clothing ready, share what we need, and go to a few museums.
And a nice restaurant where they serve real food! And not fast!
That last panel with all the wombies listening to Fraz is priceless. Excellent work.
Love Red wombies outfits.
Claret and Bruno are dressed to the nines!
Thanks, Deb! xxx
One more thing, That video of Andro up there in the side panel called, “Crackers,” I’ve seen it, but everyone should watch it…it’s great! 🙂
I wholeheartedly agree. And you can see Crackers here.
I know, I’ve watch it about a half a dozen time…crack me up.
Hey Deb, You and Peter and everyone that has watched my nutty videos so far make me smile, I am pleased that you find them good enough to watch, and Peter, thank you again for adding this one to your Space, it is much appreciated my great friend 🙂
It’s the least I could do, Andro. It was a lot of fun to see you talk about Winky and Fraz that way. And the absent-minded part was great, too.
Thank you my great friend 🙂
I enjoyed them all a lot, each one worth watching over too. I think everyone should treat themselves to viewing them. 🙂
Everyone should watch the Andro Channel!
Thank you Cassie you’re sweet 🙂
Mom told me to tell you guys that she said my last comment and that I was bad for not logging out when it was her turn to post.
Good girl, Cassie!
You need to call over and add a few comments from Cici and Cassie so that I can get into their Spaces, I can’t get in from the avatar thingy 🙁
I think Deb needs to add her website link to their profiles.
Yes that will work
nicely 🙂 Thank you Peter 🙂
I think your right. 🙂
Mommy has been really busy painting. I have to pick a fight with her slipper that hangs over her crossed leg to get her attention…but it works.
I asked mommy to fix everything so I link back to her site. But I have an about page under mommy’s…so does Cassie.
I come over to your site by surprise. Cassie can’t come cos she had not rapped on your gates yet.
Okay well tell her to start rapping
and I don’t mean to music either 🙂
Sometimes I forget to log out, too!
So do I Fraz, You and Cassie aren’t the only ones.
If everyone had their own computers it’d be a lot easier!
Fraz the wise…what’s the meaning of life for you?
For me: Blood Worm
Climbing for me
Have you ever climbed Mt. Everest, Kroten? We learned about that in school.
Definitely not blood worms for me!
I don’t know what the meaning of life is. That’s why I was asking. Maybe friends and pirate parties!
It’s whatever you’re doing today, like discussing the meaning of life!
Then I was right because I spend most of my time eating chocolate!
What the hell is Androgoth doing that he already has 104 comments this week…geez
I am a natural when it comes down to jotting down the comments, and so I add multiple snippets here, there and everywhere, your Space could be the next on my list so be careful, as I always bring the Zombie Horde with me 🙂 lol
And it’s very difficult to silence the Zombie horde. Or its leader.
Especially when they are
hungry for fresh Brains Zombies 🙁
We try to keep brains at a minimum around here.
Good I see too many over on my Space, it is a luxury to call in here and be attacked by large Spambo-Wambo Burgers, Wine Gums, Pancakes, Marshmallows and Milk Fudge Chocolates instead of those Zombies 🙂 We need more traps setting 🙂
Zombie traps could be a growing market with all the talk of the coming Zombie invasion. I’m glad we have them mostly controlled around here.
Yes we don’t want to scare anyone away when we are all having so much fun 🙂
No, and eating the guests’ brains is also pretty bad form.
It’s 115 now, but that’s for the last 7 days, not just this week. Andro is actually slacking a bit, as sometimes his count is over 200.
Wow is it really that many peter?
I waffle on a lot more than I thought 🙂 lol
You can tell I have been on vaca. I am not even on the list yet 🙁
Well you’re back on the list, now, Red!
I have a lot of catching up to do…more than 1,000 comments to read. Sheesh. I am going to be up all night.
Well you’re certainly not under any obligation to read them all! But there will be a test first thing tomorrow.
It’s great to see you again Red, we have all missed you that’s for sure, I even have a few Skeletons reaching for their tissues, it’s been terrible 🙁
I never knew skeletons were so sentimental.
Oh yes they cry like little girls sometimes but I just ignore them hoping that they will go away 🙂 They never do though 🙁
I would think they feel pretty much at home around your space. Perhaps you need a Skeletons Keep Out sign.
I am coming to the graveyard for a visit when I finish here. xxx
Be careful! There are Zombies all over the place!
Yes she already knows about them Fraz 🙂
I hope she wears a helmet, then. I wouldn’t want Red to lose her brains!
It was great seeing you in my Space Red, and like all the Wombies, Peter, Chris and everyone here in Wombania everyone is welcome to call in for a bit of a scare and yummy flavoured horror pancakes 🙂
And Frazberry flavoured ones, too!
🙂 yes plenty of those 🙂
You should get a gold star!
At my place the stars are green…Binky has some!
I do? I never noticed before.
Stop by the Goodreads post for the conversation. The stars are at the bottom of the left side bar. It resets on Mondays, so you need two comments to get them 😉
Okay, I saw them this time!
I want some too, but to gain them I have to call in more often and… Drum roll Fraz… Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I will be calling in again soon so get ready for that 🙂
Hopefully Red will be properly prepared.
Of course I am! I love visits. Shame. I am out visiting and have not been to M3 yet!!
Well I have just managed to gain one of those green M3 stars that you mentioned so I am as happy as a Skeleton on Halloween Night 🙂
I hope it won’t go to your head!
No I have already got over it Fraz but it was an awesome experience 🙂
That’s good! I wouldn’t want you to be all starry-head like Binky.
I can see it now, they are both going to be fighting Sue for the top spot 😉
They might! And it could get messy!
I think that she is always
ready for one of my visits 🙂 lol
It wasn’t you that I was worried about. It’s just that sometimes you bring some of those hangers-on from the grave with you.
I will try to limit the Skeletons Wombania trips as they do get too cheeky sometimes, but at least they don’t want anyone’s brains 🙂
That’s true. The Skeletons are less less desirable than the Zombies.
I think I would rather the skellies to the zombies…any day.
Yes, I think so.
I think rockets is probably the least likely.
I suppose that depends on one’s perspective.
what if one is going to another planet to find chocolates then one needs rocket
Absolutely! Rockets are the only way we can explore our solar system, whether maned, Wombied, or with robotic probes.
Thank you for putting up Claret and Bruno, Peter. I do love their clothes. I will have to master shoes…Claret really needs shoes.
You’re welcome, Red.
Claret and Bruno are all dressed up and needed some place show off their new outfits!
I need to get busy. I have shots to put them in…and new clothes for them 😉
I guess it pays to keep your Wombies happy.
How do you think I get them to work in the Coffee Shoppe? Claret is making weekly appearances on Wednesdays!
I did notice her there, but I wasn’t sure how you got her to serve.
Because there is a cutie who comes in after lunch…
You don’t mean Winky, do you?
Or is it Chris? 🙂
She will not tell me who it is. I need to be watching her instead of pastries.
Pastries are yummier, though!
I like pastries too 🙂
Want to share a dozen chocolate eclairs?
Absolutely and I will bring along some marshmallows so that we can pick and mix 🙂
Fraz you are so right may be no one knows the true meaning of life..but I know there is no life without chocolates..yum yum
Yeah, I think maybe no one really knows the meaning of life. But chocolates make life yummy!
I’d love a chocolate rocket to take with me for a long walk on the beach
That sounds good to me! Especially if it’s a marshmallow beach!
The real meaning of life is CHEESE!!!
I don’t know, Cedric. I think chocolate is a lot more important!
Now why am I not surprised that Cedric the Rat loves his cheeses? 🙂
You could probably smell it on his breath.
Better than dumpster.
Definitely! Unless it’s one of those super-stinky cheeses!
Or a super stinky dumpster too 🙁 Icky
Or a super-stinky dumpster filled with super-stinky cheeses!
Cedric would love that 🙂
I bet he would! That’d be Cedric’s new home.
I think I am turning green.
Stinky green cheese kind of green?
The meaning of life – it depends on how you see it. The meaning of life is to be happy no matter what. Could you give me chocolate for that? It really was a hard question.. 😀
Happy and a full tummy! Chocolate does both for me!
Hi Felicia are you having a fun week so far? 🙂
I didn’t thought of that – yeah, chocolate can make us happy and have a full tummy at the same time. But you have to eat a lot of chocolate to be able to feel full. How many pounds of chocolate do you actually eat a day?
Yes, you could say that. How about you? Hope you’re having fun as well 🙂
I try no to eat more than a couple of pounds of chocolate a day. I don’t want to get too big. But I also have my wine gums and pancakes and milkshakes, too.
Don’t forget the spambo-
wambo burgers either 🙂
I was trying to sound like I was on a diet.
Felicia I am always having fun, especially here in our Wombania with wonderful great friends, and that includes you too you know 🙂
The fun never runs out in Wombania!
Well at least it better not.
Because then I’d leave.
Thanks Androgoth and Winky! You’re right, fun never runs out in Wombania!
You sure eat a lot of Winky, hehe! 🙂
You’re welcome Felicia, with all my Skeletons and Zombies invading Wombania I need all the great friends that I can get 🙂 🙂 Have a lovely day and evening now 🙂
I eat my weight in chocolate every week! Well, not really. But I’d like to!
All of the above.
But especially the chocolate.
I’ll keep the chocolate and replace the rocket with some red wine. Perfect!
I’d rather have red wine gums, but pretty close!
Nancy you can have some
of my chocolates anytime you
know that 🙂
Can I have some of your chocolates, too?
Yeah, they’re pretty good too! Especially SpamboWhamo burgers!
So, I don’t know too, what meaning of life is… 😉
Don’t worry Sabina, Winky and Fraz will let you know all about it soon 🙂 In the meantime here have a pancake with triple choc syrup they’re lovely 🙂
Yeah, they are! And even better with some wine gums, too.
Sprinkling a bit of fudge on is a good idea too Winky, here have three of mine for good measure 🙂
Thanks! I never say no to fudge!
Chocolate’s a good enough answer for me!
Pancakes, and chocolate for sure will be helpful 😉
They sure make life a lot yummier!
So what is the true meaning of life? Maybe you could find out at an SCBWI Conference. You should go.
Maybe I could find the answer at one of their conferences!
Better than a long walk off a short pier.
That’s only good in extreme cases.
The meaning of life is sitting on a beach firing rockets in the air while loving some good chocolate.
That sounds like a pretty good answer to me!
Yes well thought of JB 🙂
Material goods. The more the more meaningful.
Well at least we know where you stand!
Doesn’t everyone know the meaning of life is 42? Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
I believe that answer was a mere convenience though, so Mr. Adams could pursue the true meaning undisturbed.
I am honestly just surprised no one else said that before me.
Before I guess the meaning of life, I want to know who’s life we are guessing about. 😉
The meaning of my life is chocolate!
What about yours?
Somebody needs to write a Meaning of Life manual.
If I figure out the meaning of life, I could!
Just watch the movie.
No one told me there was a movie!
all of the above!
I guess the meaning of life could be more than one thing.
I second “Rockets”. Good call.
Rockets isn’t a bad answer, but I still think there might be more to life.
Fraz est Rock’n’Roll!! Love him.
