September 21-25, 2009

...and they didn't.

A day lost to the void of melancholia.
Not much happened.

And not just any cookies.
Paradise Bakery cookies.
One dozen of them.
And so I sat.
Eating cookies.
All evening.

September 15-17, 2009

Is it weird that I really enjoy using power tools?

That was a fun day.
Luckily, we're all chemically stable now.

Alright, this one needs explaining.

As you might remember, I've avoided driving for the past four years.
(I was lucky enough to go to a school where it wasn't really necessary.)
And even before that I didn't relish the idea of being behind the wheel.
It's a quirk.

Thing is though, I've sort of come into possession of a hand-me-down car.
With the expectation I'd drive it.

First though, I had to get it back from the Collision Repair Center (its reasons for being there are completely unrelated to me.)
This was the first time in... possibly ever, I think... that I've driven alone and let me tell you, I didn't even have a chance to pull out of the Collision Center before very nearly causing a collision myself.

The rest of the drive home was a series of rapidly induced panic attacks and near misses.
It's truly a miracle I made it the nine blocks back home.

September 8-10, 2009

I just can't seem to get my act together.
Maybe I should resign myself to the life of a night owl.

Other than that, tai chi was fun.
More so than I first expected.

Yeah, short week.

So dogs don't need much explaining.

But card games do.
Firstly, if you've never played Apples to Apples, you've missed out.
Apples to Apples is a game with two sets of cards: adjectives and nouns.
A player designated as judge pulls an adjective (say 'classic') and the other players must put down a noun they feel the judge will chose as an appropriate fit for said word (such as 'Beethoven,' 'kilts,' or 'shake and bake.')
The judge picks the card they like the most and the player who put it down wins that round.
Another judge is picked and the cycle begins anew.
This was the long way of explaining what I was doing in the Sept. 2nd strip.
Which doesn't matter because the point is:
You'd just never know it.

And finally.
I have been working on a full blown book lately.
Anytime you've seen me working, that's what I was working on.
It's taken longer than it should have.
But phase 1 is done.
I have two more to go.

Bring it!
