You know that blog post I made awhile ago about identification with one's characters and whatnot?

Well, t'other day, a Digger went up where the local healer asks her weight, and she replies "Two-twenty." I figured that was a pretty good weight for an anthropomorphic wombat--her height looks to be somewhere around four-to-four-and-a-half feet tall, she's got immense muscle mass compared to a human, seemed a fair size.

Speculation in the comments today was that the reason I picked this number is because *I* weigh 220, and Digger is my metaphor for myself.

One person, who ain't gettin' their comment approved, went so far as to link to a photo of me at my top weight (which was never anywhere near 220, but with the usual camera-adding-pounds problem looks plausible as such.) It's not a good photo. No good photos of me exist, for that matter.

In case anybody's wondering, I'm 5'7", I weigh a little under 170 (possibly less, I keep losing weight) and Digger is not my metaphor for myself.

Sheesh. I bet this doesn't happen to male cartoonists.

well, let's assume for the moment that Digger is actually supposed to be you. Would now be a good time for Digger to encounter someone who is rudely inappropriate, and cause that person to meet with some dire event? It would be great if said person could maybe have a camera placed in a physically uncomfortable location, or was maybe 3 feet tall and about 300 pounds? :)

a Wombat site from years ago

years ago (I'm talking like 1991 here) when I was first starting to mess around with the internet and stuff, I came across this website, which I am glad to see is still in existence. It is one of the main reasons I picked Wombat as a screen name (I added the 32 after years of using the name Wombat on IRC in the undernet channels, and suddenly finding the name being used by someone else in some rather unsavory channels. I was then the recipient of some very interesting private messages). Anyway, I thought Wombat was a good name, so here we are today. Enjoy!


oh like HELL it doesn't happen to male cartoonists.
