Friday - December 22, 2000
Ugh. It's been a bad week. I'm sick again - some kind of blasted head cold complete with sinus blahs (I've been thru at least two boxes of Kleenex in two days). I've been trying to hit a Friday deadline at the office, and I feel like I've been working in slow motion because my head has basically been spinning since Monday. I've been trying to take care of last minute Christmas shopping, and all the other stuff that crops up around the holidays... well, quite honestly, i am beat. I really just wanna veg in front of the TV and play Bauble Puzzle. Really, that's all i think my brain should be doing right now.
Many of you will recognize today's comic as being the bench strip that we did back in October. I still consider it one of our funnier one-shots, and I really think that a lot of people haven't seen it. So, that combined with the fact that i totally fuqqed up Friday's strip (it wasn't very good. don't know how it slipped past quality control (looks pointedly at Largo)) we decided that it was a good time to put it in the rotation. So, if nothing else, please just laugh at it again, and think of how miserable i feel right now. ^^;;
Miserable only in the fact that my head feels like a bag full of those plastic peanuts. Otherwise i am feeling pretty good. I am absolutely shocked at the response to 'envelope'. I mean it. Shocked. I didn't think people would really like it much. I don't think I've received this many emails in so short a time ever before. I'm... kinda stunned. It also tells me that I'm moving in the right direction with things. Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling in... wait, that's the decongestant kicking in.
So. You liked envelope. Well, if that's the case, I got more where that came from. I guess i should start throwing some of the other little stories and fan fictions together. Anyone here ever read 'Brewery Panic'? Heheh. I need to resurrect that...
I just noticed this, but oddly enough, today's strip was done right after the last time I was sick as a dog. I rarely get sick, but this is the 2nd time this year. I think it has something to do with the goddamn snow and stuff we've had here. Remember when i was gushing poetic about 'oh look! it's snowing!! yay!'... I'd like to go back a few months and shoot the idiot dumbass me that said that. I am sick and tired of driving in the snow. Every damn day it's more snow, more ice, more rollover accidents on I-94. I just wanted to stay home all friggin week.
I really hope I kick this cold soon. I have too much to do over the weekend. (sigh)
This week's sketch - the sketch of the week over at fredart... ah, fredart, my poor neglected page... it needs work ^_^ is something i drew up after Poe of exploitation now showed me his Xmas strip featuring the totally cute/cool Jordan-chan wearing a 'ph33r the cute ones' t-shirt in this strip. Thanks poe.
Oh, and before I forget, for some idiotic reason, Largo and I have agreed to show up on Saturday (yes, tomorrow) at 1:00 EST (that's 12:00 noon CST] over at the IRC channel #megatokyo over on Undernet for a question and answer session. Honestly, I don't mind doing this one bit. Not sure if our answers will really be all that interesting, but if you are bored beyond belief on Saturday, come on by. I might even be fun, who knows. :P
Sleep is overtaking me. Thank you for your patience with me this week - i missed a rant, and today's comic is something akin to a re-run - I promise that thinks will keep motoring along next week.
