I hope everybody had a fun holiday. I certainly did, but all this travel time has killed my buffer!

Consequently, I’d like to do a guest week at some point soon. This is a great opportunity particularly if you run a webcomic and want to get a bit more exposure. If you’re interested, hit me up at nick at treadingground dot com and include a link to your comic / art site / whatever for more details.


Nate: So she wants to hang out? So what? It doesn’t have to MEAN anything.
Jimi: PLEASE. You’ve been in this game too long to come to me with that kind of shit.

Jimi: She’s giving you, what, a THIRD chance here? That girl LIKES you. It’s NEVER gonna be ‘just hanging out.’
Nate: Even if it’s not, this thing with Tracy isn’t going to last. I’m breaking it off ASAP.
Jimi: Don’t be so sure of that. Didn’t you say it had been like two years?

Jimi: That pussy is like WATER IN THE DESERT for you! I’m betting you’re gonna find it a little harder to pull your mouth away from that canteen.

    This is getting too close to my personal life for comfort… ^_^

  2. I notice he decided to go with a comparison that was also wet.

    canteen? CANTEEN?

  4. LadyMaul says:

    Wow… Canteen? There was a mental image I did not need, especially having personally once had a boss who was a psycho-tramp named Tracy…

    But I laughed anyway. =D

  5. Sara E. says:

    I think I’m going to use ‘canteen’ as a euphemism for vagina from now on.

  6. Bubbaclaw says:

    You seem to have a gift for euphemisms Nick.

  7. tia says:

    To go there, or not to go there, that is the question…..

  8. snakesauer says:

  9. The Kingpin says:

    I like how they move to completely different parts of the store with each sentence.

  10. Wes says:

    This guy is like a Bagger Vance for pussy-getting.

  11. BMeph says:

    Yeah, I think we ALL know how Nate’s going to be “breaking it off ASAP” with Tracy…

    …or should that be “breaking it off” IN Tracy? ;รพ

  12. Chris says:

    This plot is heading back to Rose isn’t it? I think I’m starting to see it.
    Tracy = sex w/o love, Miranda = love w/o sex, but only Rose = both.

  13. DruffyB says:

    ‘water in the desert’
    ‘cant take lips off that canteen’

    More wonderful metaphors from the people at Treading ground!

    Dood, stop following me around! You’re describing my EXACT situation right now…

  15. Thomas O. says:

    Count me in on the guest strip thing… I’ve already got one started! :)

    • Tom NC says:

      Excuse the cross-comic post, but I really enojoyed what I’ve read so far of Times Like This. I’ve gotten through the first 40 thus far, but had to get back to work. Catching up on TG was more time than I should have spent surfing.

  16. Tez says:

    I’ve been reading this strip since before the long break and just found out you were back on while cleaning out my favorites folder! Been loving it even more, keep up the great work.

    My only request is that if you ever show Tracy in civilian gear she should rock a “Laser Guided Fetish Bomb” t-shirt.

  17. Ray says:

    Why does it seem to me that that guy will be eating Tracy out based on hat his friend said? lol Yea I can’t remember their names and I’m too lazy to check my memory banks for them. lol

  18. NF says:

    I would read the shit out of a comic that was just Jimi giving relationship advice.
