Sigh . . . she outran all but eight of them, only to be undone by a stray “bloop”!


I’ve been rereading a lot of my own archives lately, mostly for reference purposes, and as I’ve done so, I’ve been rereading comments as well. I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has been reading this, and especially folks who leave messages. Ace and Krulle, I know I’m not the most talkative soul in the world, but I do read the messages you post, and it’s always nice to see your communiques. Reminds me there’s folks out there reading / enjoying this thing, and it inspires me to work harder. You too, Farckenholdt, Paul, Phecda, Willow and everyone else I have forgotten to mention who are thereby free to  yell at me for it! 🙂

I also value the corrections for my genuinely broken French. If I’ve botched it this time, please say something – I’ve little experience with pairing conjugated verbs with gerunds!

Also, new comic Monday!

EDIT: Okay, not happening, but I have a good reason for REAL this time!

So, I don’t know how many people know that I’ve recently traded in my scrubs and medical equipment for a desk and a computer chair. But my current job is at a newspaper. It’s a niche paper, but it’s legit, and this week, their paper is going to feature something it’s never had before.

One of my comics.

It’s my first ever attempt at op-ed, and I’m not gonna lie, I’m weak! But the whole newsroom seemed to like this one, and I’m hoping that this becomes the start of a regular gig with these folks. I’m super excited. In the past, they don’t seem to have usually posted their editorial comics online, just in the print edition. But if it DOES show up online, then by GOD there will be a link here!

Anyway, that’s where my time / energy went this week. I’ll get better about it eventually, but for now, well . . . new comic Thursday. 🙂
