Despite living in South Texas, having a slightly tricky to pronounce Spanish name makes things more interesting than they should be.
I almost titled this episode "Take This Job and Shove It," but that would have been too easy.
This episode is a reading of a comic story “Cats Kingdom” written and illustrated by Paco Panda. https://www.deviantart.com/pandapaco/art/Cats-Kingdom-01-856780476저자 Eduardo Soliz
I catch a fever one weekend and get to experience the joy that is getting tested for the coronavirus, wearing a mask inside the house and thinking of ways to mention constipation without actually saying it!
All things considered, 2020 was all right for me personally, though not without it's ups and downs.

Like so many things in my life, being a furry means that some things get a bit weird...okay, weirdER.
After months of being out of work, it was time to rejoin the rat race.
This is an old script (I have a Pixel 4a right now) but why not? I was one of the three people that had a Windows Phone, woo!
Like a lot of y'all, my home life and work life became one and the same. I also had to get masks. Surprisingly, toilet paper wasn't much of an issue, though I will never understand WTF that was all about.

After a month of a half of sort-of working from home, the hammer expectedly falls. I'm not counting the 15 second ad at the start so TECHNICALLY the episode is just under 300 Seconds. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Full text of the story: https://eduardosoliz.com/2020/05/20/laid-off

I'm finally gaining some ground in my personal battle of the bulge, but it isn't easy!
With the office now closed, I settle into a new normal working from home. Also, daily meetings SUCK Visit eduardosoliz.com for more of my wonderfully weird written words!
Coronavirus didn't really affect me much until the afternoon of March 12, 2020, when an email dropped into my work inbox. The next day, Fiesta San Antonio 2020 would be cancelled. Suddenly, things were serious.
I've always disliked ordering from the drive-thru, but now that I'm forced to use them when I want to eat out, I'm relearning to hate them all over again.

I won't be presenting any panels at this year's San Japan, so I reminisce over things that have happened to me when I've tried to share some nerd knowledge.
"...many are genuinely friendly, but at the same time, a lot of them sound like used car salesmen."

The job fair, where awkward moments, overly enthusiastic people and the slight chance of a new job await!
I recently spent a few months looking for work, so I decided to spend a few episodes complaining about the process of finding a job in the 21st Century, as opposed to complaining about my job. This episode is marked as Explicit due to one F-bomb.

Owning a home is wonderful, but when you end up selling it, you miss a few things... Visit my website: eduardosoliz.com
Growing up in a small town in Texas gives one a different perspective on driving, and I figure out why Buc-ees recently lost a 'favorite gas station' poll to Quik Trip.

Spoiler alert: Furry Invasion still has panel issues, but otherwise, it was very good!
The second Furry Invasion is almost here, and I have a few somewhat bitey words to say about it! Check out my appearance on "Splat From the Past" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aa_5gEkSI70
It takes guts to put a piece of yourself online for the world to see.
I used to go to lunch on Fridays with a bunch of guys way back when. Occasionally, hilarity would ensue thanks to condiments, peanut butter, and tea lists.
A few kind words from a fan convinces me to jump back on the convention-reviewing train I hopped off of three months ago. Listen to "Con Talk" here! Shay Sinshine's Twitter
Furry Fiesta has been a great convention so far, but with a new hotel come new challenges for it's tenth year.https://furryfiesta.org
I experience The Future by ordering via touch-screen at McDonald's for the first time. Other folks weren't quite as ready, though!
Just in the nick of time, I found a new job!
"Wherever you are, you are now doing my job because you can do it (or try to do it) for cheaper..."
My former company continues to be a pain in the rear even after I'm no longer working for them.
The last day of my job arrives and it mostly goes smoothly.
Getting laid off is bad enough, managers, so please spare us the condescending bullcrap.I admittedly am just a *little* bit bitter.
Don't call it a "layoff." It's a "job separation." :P
Talking about fun things like Archie Comics, cheesy video games, and yes, My Little Pony.
You can trust me.
