"coffee filters"

Bleah. No April 1 joke. We have enough real disasters around here that we were thwarted. Feh. ^^;;

Yknow what the worst thing about moving is? It's all those little things that you have never even had to think twice about before that suddenly you have no idea where you put it.

For instance, i woke the other day in the new place, clambered around boxes, stepped on cats, and found the kitchen where i knew the coffee pot was. In fact, i was proud of myself the day before - i had everything out i needed to make coffee -- Coffee pot, coffee, grinder, even a cup, so that the next morning i could actually MAKE coffee.

Then as i went to reach for a coffee filter, it dawned on me that they were packed away in some box somewhere.

The most amusing thing about this is that it took a day or two before i managed to find them. There is a Tim Hortons closer to our house than the grocery store is, so... yeah, i never did go and buy more. Nice thing is, even tho im still tripping over boxes and stepping on cats (who have no clue what is going on but seem to be liking the new place finally) i have my coffee filters, and i can make coffee...

but i have no microwave yet. So no re-heating coffee (except on the stove). But hey, it's coffee.

As you can see, i did manage to get fridays comic done and up. It took a while to get back into the swing of drawing things right, but it eventually started to come together. Of course, just as i was getting close to finish things up Seraphim spotted a number of bogus charges on one of our credit cards. That's the kind of thing you jump on immediately. Of course, this delayed me finishing the comic by an hour, but what the hell, it was almost 4am so whatever. :P

Then, when i posted, Makoto went into another of her little snits and was offline till almost 11am this morning. Ugh. Oh well, its up, and Makoto is happy now, so that's all that matters.

In other quick news - if you live in the Ann Arbor area be sure to stop by Wizzywings on saturday for Webcomic Day. (April 2nd at 1pm) I won't technically be there, but i will be stopping in to say hi to everyone. Here's who-all is gonna be there:

Caroline Curtis from 9th Elsewhere,
Jerry Koudelik from Secret of Mana Theater.
Jennifer Gallagher from Swenyar's Find,
David Lister from Paradox Lost
Brion Foulke from Flipside Comics.

As for me, i'll be doing book signings at the Wizzywig store two weekend from now on April 16th

Well, crud. Due to something resembling a perfect storm of circumstances, there's no real April Fools' joke on MT this year.

Fred and I did have an April Fools' plan, but between his move, my toothache, a horrid spring cold, and a 2,500-word article I'm writing for Newtype USA that's due next week (look for it in June or July!), there just wasn't enough time for either of us to hold up our ends of the plan.

I apologize for dropping the ball on this one--Monday I'll have a new rant, and next year I'm DEFINITELY going to have something up for April Fools'.
