This strip also hits a bit close to home. Lore’s system is a bit like a casual version of this episode of Scrubs, except without the people dying. I can’t be trusted, apparently. I feel an enormous wave of guilt whenever I’m not working. It might not be the healthiest of things, but it’s certainly efficient.
I’m also photophobic, which is not a fear, but a medical condition where my eyes are oversensitive to light. I dunno if Robert thought about that when we wrote panel 3, but I hadn’t even realised the connection until right now. Panel 3 is basically my reaction if I go outside without my polarised glasses on.
The first two panels’ background is a tram stop near Squishface Studio.
