Everyone has a morning routine, and part of mine is that I must read my web comics. It's something pleasurable I can do while sucking down my first cup day of coffee of the day, and no matter how my day turns out, I can at least say that it started out with a smile on my face.
Unless, of course, you read certain web comics like xkcd. Then you run the risk of waking up to comics like this, and today is definitely one of those days.
Since there's nothing that pulls at the heartstrings quite like a sad robot (see Wall-E,) I felt it necessary to look for some cheerful, happy robot hats today.
Aww, such a happy little robot. Even though it looks like it's gritting it's teeth, it looks so cheerful, being all orange and stuff, sitting at a jaunty angle. Kind of makes me wish the seller continued making them.
...So, how much money do you think it would take to convince this lady to make a hat like this for me?
Okay--this one doesn't look too particularly happy, seeing as it lacks a mouth and stuff, but I like the model's orange frames, so it's going on here.
And yes, I know that getting upset about a rover being stuck on Mars is silly, seeing as the rover lacks the sentience to even formulate the concept of home, let alone the desire to return to it. Be that as it may, I suppose there is some sort of comfort in knowing that the rover is alright, because the Rover Twitter tells me so (yes, the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity really do have a Twitter account. They also have names. Don't ask how I know this--I just do.)
But just in case, here's a special note just for Spirit:
See you next week, everyone!
