raindrops keep fallin' on ma head
what a day.
first the rain and lots of it. not to mention lighting.
the power went out here at work and the net was down for awhile, too. (before the lights, folks.)

yesterday i got a little postcard from ups. they had a package for me that they couldn't deliver (someone added an extra number to the street address.) it was the fabled keenspace spotlight book!
the keenspacers have pulled together their art and resources to create a little ( 0.o 80 pages!) book to hand out free at the san diego comic-con which starts this thursday.
wwaaahhh!!! i wanna go, wanna go!!! waaahh!
oh, well maybe next year.

there's some good stuff in here and some ok stuff, i.e. needs work, but if they keep drawing, then they'll be working on it. 8^)
i mean even my stuff needs work. some places in the drawings look blurry and there is a typo! opps!
there were also printing errors. poor mark of zortic. his pages were mixed up with that from another book. and then on page 68...poor bry. the ad for lcd was crooked, resulting in some of the text getting cropped of the page. otherwise, it's not bad. i hope it does well at the con. 8^)
if you go to the con, go by booth 1450, the keenspot booth, and pick up a copy! even with the errors and stuff, it's still cool.

the rain has calmed down and i've eaten way too much junk food. i gotta have real food tonight, so i can think straight.
i have to finish scripting out thursdays comic so i can draw it tomorrow.

all this and i'm wearing no pants today.
ok, it's a skirt, but still...

i've had too much sugar and i'm being way to silly. definately too much junk food. oy.

glych liked the little comic i did. her's is here in my forum. 8^)


i don't normally get political, but...
well, after listening about the tips program ashcroft wants and then reading the blog of cartoonist tom tomorrow, who draws the politcal strip, this modern world, i now consider the election of george w. bush one of the worst mistakes ever.
i've never been a fan of him to start with.
first, he wants to attack iraq. i'm not happy with ole saddam, but doesn't that make us look bad by just attacking them while telling the rest of the arab community in the middle east that we're all for peace? no wonder they see us as the great evil.
then, the would buearu of homeland sercurity...yeah, our current stuff needs work, but all you're doing it creating more red tape and paperwork.
and don't get me started on ashcroft. mr. ashcroft, go away, please! you're not helping anyone.
ya know i used to be a little apathetic about all this, but after hearing about that inane tips program...
if we want to let citizens spy on fellow citizens, thens let's just quit captalism altogether, put the berlin wall back up and go commie or fascist.
let's just take everybody's civil and other liberties away!
this'll be worse than mccarthy looking for commie's everywhere in the 1950s.

i really dread what will happen before mr. low i.q. bush gets out of office.
ugh! >8^(

i am seriously considering of writing to my senator about all this.
don't know if i will, but i'm thinking about it.
and i was in a good mood until i starting thinking about this! bah!


i just found the worst pop up ad ever!
it just showed up as a square in the middle of the page, no minimize or close buttons, no way to get rid of it.
it just sat there and eventually faded as it moved to the upper left side of the page.
yuck. that type of ad should be illegal. *ggrrrr*

just as annoying was my isp last night when i tried to load today's blue canary comic.
granted it was 1 am, but still...
first try, it said the computer i was dialing was not responding and every try after that resulted in a busy signal. 8^P
so i had to load it this morning when i got up. 9_9
i just wish it was friday...


ladies and gentlemen,
pending their approval of course, i declare the ads for the first half of august complete.

ya want fries with that, your majesty?
i got an e-mail from dee, who's in our local sca group.
we're hosting crown list in october and she asked if jo and i would be kind enough to serve the high table where the king and queen will sit during the feast.
*squeal!* jo and i are so excited about this. it'll be the first time i've met anyone holding a post that high.
we'll be wearing identical period gard in the colors of meridies, black and white.
half the fun will be planning these two outifts....8^)
can't wait 'til october.

in the meantime, i will be working on my comic today after helping jo move my othr mattress upstair to emily's room. then when emily returns for the fall semester at asu, she will have her pick of mattress instead of dealing with that ancient and uncomfortable twin one in her room currently.

yesterday after work was depressing.
i stressed as i went to dad's to get my mail. i wasn't for sure wheat mood he'd be in. turns out he was in an ok mood. my mail turned out to be the first payment thingie for my student loans, which while it wasn't good, i don't owe that much* so that's not bad.
on the way there, i get pulled over by a state trooper. the same one who pulled me over in may for speeding. yes, i was speeding.
when he asked where i was going to so fast, i explained it was to dad's, that i wanted to get my mail and get outta there and little bit about the divorce. i got off with a warning *whew!*
but it left a damper on my mood.
golive on my computer is acting up, the inspector box will not show an option for tiling images as a background. i don't know how to fix this. i may get ken to do that soon.
and i got the catalog i was waiting for from the SCAD.
tution was high. higher than i thought. i would need lots of finacial help, especially if i wasn't able to obtain a fellowship.
that and it sounds like ken doesn't really want to go to savannah, but would for me. that means that i cannot risk failing if i do go.
i developed a very defeatist attitude, wondering if i could go at all...*sigh*
perhaps i can still go but it may be awhile. i will have to change some personal habits like doing things at the last minute, arriving to places late and some major adjustments in attitude (i.e. getting rid of the defeatist one for example.)
God grant me the grace to do this and the strength to continue. it seems i've got a lot of self-imporvement work to do...

but like scarlett, i'll deal with it tomorrow.
i have a comic to do tonight and i will not miss my deadline.
i think i'll go see eric convey some emotions so i can smile.

*i have 2 student loans, both about $2,000 and something a piece and this is after 5 years of school. not bad.


this is cute, funny, werid and a little stupid. but it'll make you laugh.
eric conveys an emotion

2 mosquito creeks?
hmmm. not good.
i got an e-mail from a nice lady named kim. she wanted to print one of my cartoons. unfortunately, it wasn't my cartoons. it was the work of james robbins, who happens to draw mosquio creek.

what? you say i draw that comic? well, it looks like there are two mosquito creeks. here's the comic kim wanted to print.
you can see my old comic here.

well, this won't do.
my comic is copyright '98, his '99. but i've been toying with changing the name ever since i saw this. i dunno if i want to create battle of anything over this. i have an idea, see.
when i go to visit ken in osceola i see a little liquor store called spirit world. this creates the image of a haunted liquor store in my mind. cute visual pun, huh? i may have it that natalie and her mother, mary an, come back home to a family owned liquor store as well as the house. hmmm. it would give it a centering point i think, better than the family house or the high school. i could focus on both natalie's life in the school and mary an's as she works in the store when not investigating paranormal activity.

well, i tried to e-mail james about this, but the e-mail i got from his page bounced back. i bet it did to poor kim, too. rats.
i was wanted his feedback on this.


almost time to go and i still haven't heard from terry or tom on that ad. i need their approval on it or i can't send it tomorrow.
hurry up you two!

well, it's official. ken's new computer is cool. 8^) hopefully it will be thing he needs to start on monday the 13th.

he was going to come over on friday evening and we were going to see a movie, but well, plans got sidetracked.
on his way home from osecola, he saw something on the side of the road, two sad little eyes.
they belonged to a puppy, purebred golden retreiver about 6-8 weeks old from the looks of it. who knows how long he was out there.
he had a sister with him who unfortunatley got hit and killed by a car. he was staying near her. there were no houses near by. this was the proverbial "middle of nowhere."
ken said the puppy was estatic to see him, crawling up his shoulder and licking his face and hands. he couldn't just leave him there.
so with the puppy in his lap, he drove out to his parents' place. i met him there.

he's so cute! they've named him "lucky" and he's gotten a clean bill of health from the vet. he's such a sweet dog. he's a buff golden, meaning he's a lighter shade than normal, but still a golden retriever.

i don't see how someone could disregard life so much to put to puppies out in the middle of nowhere. *ggrrrrr*
while, lucky was indeed lucky, i feel bad about his sister who never had a chance. who knows how many people went down that road...not many but enough to hit the poor thing and then to drive by not caring. plus, it had been raining alot the previous days. and it was a purebred to boot!
poor things...i know more people would have picked up the puppy but driven on by if it was a kitten. that also makes me mad! >8^(

but i'm glad things turned out happy for lucky. he's gonna be a good dog.

mom went back to texas yesterday. it'll be awhile before i see her again. it was good to see her even the short time she was here, though.

i talked with jonathan stanley finally. unless we can convince ms. thrasher, the faculty herald advisor, to accept submissions from an alumni or i take a class this fall, there won't be much of a way for me to help jonathan with the cartoons. maybe i could do 2 or 3, but beyond that if ms. thraxher puts her foot down, i won't be able to submitt more than that. we'll see how it goes. maybe there's an art student who oughta join the staff. i vaguely recall talking with grover about that, but who was it that i recommended? *think, kit, think!*

tonight, jo and i go to a pampered chef party. food should be good and maybe i can get ken a new pizza stone since jo kinda permently borrowed his. after that, i'll be working on my comic's new site design. *crosses fingers* hope it works out ok. 8^)

our local, itty bitty sca group just found out it's hosting the kingdom crown list in october. o.0
that means the tournament battle to decide who will be the next heirs to the throne of meridies. and it's a big kingdom. i know foss is excited. 8^)P

ok, back to the ads! i have a deadline here.


well, i was so pooped when i got home. all i did was change into my jammies, ate a banana and started to read my new book, tomb, temples and heiroglyphs by barbara mertz. good stuff. 8^)
i tried to call my love often last night but keeping getting a busy signal. his friend, jt, was over and they had left the internet on. 9.9
while trying to call him, i got a call from jonathan stanely. i meet him at 4:30pm at the edge coffeehouse to discuss whether i can draw cartoons for the herald in the fall. 8^)

after that, ken finally calls. 8^D
he was in a cheerful mood since he had someone over and wasn't bored. plus he was drawing! yea!

working on the ads some more. that is all.



i haven't been a total bore right now, i have a rough sketch for the next Blue Canary comic and a new costume design for odile.
you honestly think she's gonna hunt and stake vampires in that skirt? uh-huh. pants are much easier. she's not that stupid. being stupid is amelia's job.
i think it's a pretty good design, considering the stuff i've designed for her sisters, but posting those pictures will have to wait until i update my site design some.

ken now has adobe golive. i'll see about redesigning my site in that. then i'll have him go over the code and tweak it.
that should elimate any broken links and holes in code and make it load nice and pretty. 8^)
also, i'm thinking that since my comic's file sizes are getting pretty big. they used to be abour 50k or so, which i thinkit pretty big, but now it's around 80k. i'm toying with the idea of switching the file formats from .gif and .jpg to .png. what does that mean? for starters, most readers will need the current version of their web browers. and i don't know what it'll do to the ones that don't use internet "exploder" and netscape. first, though, i gotta see if any of the programs i have at home will save to that format.
i may start on that next weekend. it will be a time consuming project to redesign my entire site. i've got alot of stuff to do there.

another thing i'd like to do is a guide to my characters, kinda of like a cast page but more along the line of a character sheet animators use.
this way anyone doing a guest comic has an easier time with the look of my characters. it would have facts in there like, odile does have a nose but one can only see it in profile view, the exact shade of blue for ferdinand in RGB is R=82 G=187 B=245, and etc. i usually have to plunge through other artist's archives to get some knowledge, but this would save some time i think.

wanna go home

i'm watching the clock. i'm staying late today so i can come in an hour late tomorrow.
but i'm bored. i didn't get all of the info from the hope paper like i had hoped i would. i'll see if i can speak to them again tomorrow. at least alot of the info inside the ad is about the same as the last. i'm adding 3 more stores so, i have 8 ads to do. they are mostly alike so that speeds it up. and monday, i think, we open a brand new store so i'm sure that number will be raised to 9 before the month is out.

*rats* i just missed a call on my cell. let's see who it was...
it was jonathan stanley from the herald, who's call i was waiting on.
i do have his number now, so i'll call him later and see if we can work this comic thing out.

i wanna go home.

comic's done.

*yawn* and i got it up on time too. i'm proud of myself. i set a goal and met it. 8^) don't stop now, kit, don't stop now.
bj over at jackie's fridge sent me a cute sketch of odile. yea! i'm gonna see if i can put it up on my fan art page. also, i need to scan some stuff in and send it to glych...
gotta get to working on the comic jam.

plus, jonathan stanley over at the herald wants to run some of my comics. not blue canary, but something else. we'll see how that goes.

ok, i've gotta work on more ads. a deadline's a comin'!


time, payday and chocolate

well, restarting my computer fixied my stupid yahoo problem. feh. at least i can see my e-mail now.

i hope i get that comic done tonight!
see i have been busy. and mom takes time, too. i love her, don't get me wrong, but she always has something for me to do.
yesterday is was to fetch her a bag of ice and to try "fix" her phone. she has a nokia 6155 now and didn't know there were more than 4 ringtones and doesn't know about how to save numbers in her phonebook on it. oh, she'll learn if she gets the gumption to, she just sits thre until she figures it out. i admire her for that. 8^)
but momma, i have a comic to do!
i do think i have a cool mom, though.
she got a gameboy advance and the tetris world game cartridge to play on plane trips. 8^)

i remember papa and granny always had tasks for mom and me to do. go get me this. go get me that.
"why?"i would ask.
"because your legs were younger," was always the reply.
and if i ever have kids i'll prolly do the same thing. the cycle continues. *sigh*

it's payday! yea! i cashed my check.
good news: i have money.
bad news: i need to pay rent. bye bye money!

my supervisor linda offered two bars of nestle baking chocolate. turns out we got an order filled wrong. after it got all sorted out, we got to keep the stuff so the staff here is taking it home. i think jo will be happy to see 2 bars of semi-sweet baking chocolate. 8^)
yahoo is being a nasty, stupid poo poo head.

all i'm trying to do is check my e-mail. i can't even get the login page up!
all i ever see is that the page cannot be displayed. *GRRR*
i'm not happy about this.
stupid yahoo.


spam, spam, spam, baked beans and spam

i just checked my e-mail to discover that i had spam in my bulk mail folder.
i noticed the subject line: "Hello combcorps, you may have won a trip to the bahamas!"
i guess some spammers are getting too tired to try to personalize the subject lines. they know we'll delete them anyway.
apathy abounds. earlier today i had one that stated that bluecoloredsky could enlarge their penis safely and in the privacy of their own home.
*rolls eyes* what next? ick.

i deleted the spam, btw.

ken and i left for memphis too late to go to the chinese grocery stores. we had a rain and hail delay.
but we got to the airport ok and way ahead of time to pick up mom. i though she was supposed to come in at 6 and here she comes at 7 saying no we were on time...*shrugs*
i'm glad to see her however she is going to stir up some trouble on the house...

at times like this, i wish i could just turn my back on my parents and not look back. but mom wouldn't understand and she is the one i don't want to hurt. i'm not quite so sympathic to my dad. he's ok but he's done somethings in the past that keep me from sugarcoating his fatherly image. i know better.
i worry about my older brother, living with him still. i don't know what to do with him either. i had to move out eventually. i always knew i would. i feel bad that he's still there and when dad here's what mom's up to with the house...i'm afraid he'll take it out on my brother. not psyhically. never that way. dad just yells. he's temper is quick and it's over fast but i've never liked it when someone gets upset or yells. i think that is why. he's mellowed some in recent years but you never know. dagnabit! why does this have to happen? didn't my bro and i suffer enough through the divorce? it was bad at first but it got better. heck, they we're even civil to each other...and now this happens.
*ggggrrrr* i hate this whole mess. i don't care about that house anymore. i just want the whole ordeal over.
i told my parents that i will not pick sides in this mess. mom will respect that. i'm afraid that dad will oh so conveintly forget it. *sigh*
i have mail to pick up at dad's tonight. if he brings if up, i'll remind him of my stance. they are both my parents, like it or not.
when i was little at the beginning of the divorce i had to choose who to live with. i dont' think i really understood at the time. i just knew that i was dad's little spoiled brat. i usually got my way with dad while mom usually made me behave. so i chose. now, i am starting to regret that desicion some.
true, dad made more than mom so he could afford to take care of myself and my brother. and i did go every weekend to visit mom. there never was a custody battle. mom didn't want to do that to us, but she missed alot of my growing up. dad never showed to my school functions until my last two years of high school. it was always mom. she'd be there if no one else would.

i'm afraid to run away from this whole mess, but i'm also afraid to confront it. we'll see what happens in the end.

i like the rain we've been getting but after awhile, it starts to make me depressed.
yea! thanks to the blogger boards, i got that 503 error fixed.
that make me want to get my archive page up and going...
i'll ask jo if she knows how.


darn blogger!
stupid error 503! why won't you work? *grrr*
the thai food jo made on wednesday was wonderful (aleterarion, woo hoo!)
i woke up the next day and tried to find leftover fried bananas for breakfast, only to find them gone. the early bird, jo in this case, gets the fried bananas. she can always make more so i wasn't too hurt by it. 8^)
we had went searching at the local thai resturant, the king and i, the day before, which has a small mini-grocery inside.
jonesboro used to have one and ken and i would love to go in there. but they folded. the only international type grocery we have now is the mexican one. well, we learned at the thai place that if we give them a list of what we want, they can get it for us in a week. cool!

well, i get to see my love today! 8^)
and he's starting to get things together on his webcomic, Monday the 13th! i'm so excited. and i'm thinking it's about time.
when he gets the keenspace account for it, i'll post a link to it.
everyone start reading it. it'll be good!
and i'm not just saying that because i'm dating him. ask jo!

and i got my comic done wednesday night! yea!
now if i have time this weekend, i'll draw the next one. it might have to be just lilne art. we'll she how much time i have.
my scanner works, despite another round of "blue screen of death" on monday evening. this one was easily fixed. i have to disconnect my printer. *whew* what a relief! i thought it would be something major. that i can deal with.
oh, coloring with that wacom is a dream! foss, if you get one, you're so gonna love it!

a year ago, a fan sent me to a comic called No Sterotypes, by amber "glych" greenlee. why? because one of her character's looks alot like amelia. plagerism? nah, i think that great minds just think alike. we both started our comics around the same time but we live in differnt parts of the country, so we couldn't have known...
well, i've been in contact with her recently and she's pretty cool. she colors art for archie comics. she's out their working in the field! i'm a little envious but i'm glad she doing what she loves. maybe if i wasn't in loser arkansas, but i digress...
we must be on the same wavelength because both of our comics have redheads with curly hair and characters weilding magic.
her character, jody, is much smarter than my amelia.
right now she working on a comic called, Glych's Experiment.
No Sterotypes will be produced in a media other than the web.
after seeing the fanart she did for Blue Canary, i predict my own No Sterotypes fanart to follow. 8^) this will be fun. i'm thinking...lightsabers?
right now, poor glych is having virus trouble. 8^( i'm sorry,girl!

tomorrow should be interesting. ken and i are headed to memphis. we'll prolly just wander around. we do have something of an agenda, though.
first mission is to find and oriental grocery store. i have found several on the web complete with phone numbers listed. 8^)
around 5:50pm, we need to be at the airport for my momma is coming home to visit! yea!
she just got her certification to be a nurse's aide and will start training to become and LVN (think LPN, it's just like it. same thing, different name.) *sniff* i'm so proud! i've missed her! ken and i are gonna take her out to eat at red lobster (her choice. 8^) and visit.

fun stuff.
i was searching star wars.com and found some mini sites that offer goodies like desktop patterns and the like. whoever designed these sites not only had too much time on their hands, but had too much fun doing it. i wish i coulda designed these sites...


yea, jo!
now i have that comic link problem with scarygoround taken care of.
blogger finally decided to let me see my template page.

working on the color comic tonight still.
and jo is having company.
i don't mind that but i may have to be rude and go back upstairs to work on my comic after i eat.
she's making thai food. ooooo! yum!

i got a fan letter! yea!
that makes me happy.
and there's peoples on my forum!
not many but it's a start. 8^) i thought the poor thing was dying. maybe there's hope after all.
now, wish me luck, i have a comic to finish tonight. i may not sleep much.


hmmm, my code is acting screwy.
i tried to add scarygoround earlier last week under my comics heading, but it keeps wanting to mess the code up by combining it to the link for scottmccloud.com.
bad html code! bad!!
*waps code with a rolled newspaper and rubs it's nose in the mess it's made.*
what is so odd, it that when i go look at the template to see the code, it's all correct. weird.

i think i have the next comic laid out enough to draw it and i have the next one ironed out as well. 8^)
thanks, love!
poor thing had a terrible headache and yet i got a few ideas out of him and shared some that i came up with for the history of the von Creepensteins.
also friday i was doodling around and i came up with a finalized design of odile and odette's younger sister, otthild. looks good!

i came home friday to a note on the front door from fed ex. my wacom is in! i went and retrieved it posthaste. 8^D it's so cool. i'll use it to do the grayscale on the comic. who knows i may jazz it up to color if i have time. and little need for sleep.

c and i went to see lilo & stitch. quite cute. they're right, it is one of the better ones disney has produced in recent years. almost makes me wish i could've went down the path of becoming an animator. i would've need more skill back then though. perhaps the lord knows what he is doing. i still want to go get that masters in sequential art though, since i doubt any animation school would let me in. they want beginners so they dont' have to reteach you how to draw. that is hard to do, once you get into a habit of drawing a certain way...

i also found the the sketchblog of faith, the artist behind the webcomic, demonology 101. good read! this thing should be published by DC/Vertigo!
the sketchblog idea i like. i may do one of my own. give it a different name and such. i just wonder were i'll upload the images...0.o
but that is a future project. besides i don't want to copy off of faith. she's just too cool an artist to do that to. one must ponder and let the idea percolate in my head. i need to think about it more and take care of other projects before i start this one.

i need to do some updating to the blue canary site...fix a few things...i'll try and do that this week.
i know two of the fan art images are not showing up. *grrr* and after those nice people gave me the art! one of them was the pic ken did of odile... *wah!* at least i can upload it again to keen_.
i've been trying to get a basic design for the mosquito creek site. it looks like i'll be copying the basic design from the blue canary site, but with small changes.
i wish i knew more html! blast that state university design degree! it was more print oriented that digital and only when i was about to graduate did they start to bring in the digital design stuff. 8^( well, i suppose i shall have to learn it elsewhere. for now i might draw up what i want and give it to ken to code out for me.
i also need to fix the design here...it's overdue.


durn painters

i've a habit of checking my e-mail when i get back to my office after being out. i went to pick up the finished letterhead and envelope for the company's tobacco stores. (the finished product looked good.)
i found this in my inbox from a fan named andrew:

"Hey...2 summers ago i saw your comics drawn on the wall at the
accademia in florence, i went back this year, and they painted over everything,
sorry to tell you :( "

i'm sorry, too, andrew.
i was worried that someone would deface it more than it being painted over.

the accedemia is where michelangelo's famous statue of david is housed. the line gets long as the tourist season gets into full swing.
i drew a sketch of me looking ahead and commenting on the long line along with three panels featuring amelia and odile waiting in the accedemia line and falling asleep due to it being so slow. i also drew a cartoony portrait of fellow student, leia la rue.
i did it mostly for fun and to pass time. people seemed to like the comics because i got e-mails from people who visited the accedemia and saw them while they were in line themselves. (i put my comic's web address up in case you're wondering how they got ahold of me.)
a few days later, i went back and saw the doodle of me defaced. someone drew a phallus in the cartoon me's mouth. i was appalled and disgusted. *sigh* why can't people leave my stuff alone?
i did double check the cartoons at the same time and they were untouched. i guess people respect a comic more than a doodle, but then the portrait of leia was also untouched. hmmmm.

now, they have been erased.
at least no one can draw phalluses or mustaches on my stuff this way.
i'm just regret that i don't have pictures of all three panels of odile and amelia's adventures of waiting in line.
i do have one thanks to a fan who snapped a shot and e-mailed it to me. thanks, robin! i still owe her a sketch for that.
i need to find her e-mail and contact her.


i can't wait to get my wacom. it'll be so cool.
go look and see the comic i have up now! i made it all on a graphic tablet.

and i think i have the dialouge worked out enough to start drawing next week's comic. yea!
gotta scan lots o' stuff including fanart for framed!!! i made it back in may but since i moved and then my scanner broke i never got to send it in. it seems i only do fan art when i'm going through archives and i have just finished them, since i lost track of things during the great framed!!! escape. too many crossovers/comics to read during the school year! at least i got caught up know. 8^)

and jo hooked my 'puter up to the internet last night. thanks, jo!

and now i remember that i forgot to drop that corn off the doug and c.
it should still be good, it's still in the fridge. maybe i can do that tonight...
last week my dad sent me home with 21 ears of corn for me and jo to eat or give away. o.0
21 ears! dat's alot of corn. but it's good stuff, though.

i discovered a new comic today, scarygoround. i like the style. it's done completely in adobe illustrator. 8^)


i came to a realization on saturday.

the character, amelia peach, a ditz to whom i gave my curls if not in the same color; the character i thought was a rarity, a dumb redhead...
well i did some thinking listening to of all things, werid al.
amelia isn't the world's only ditzy redhead.
so was lucy ricardo.
true, odile will be no ethel, or will they have to be in a chocolate factory, but they make quite a pair of friends getting into and out of trouble.
it some ways it cheers me to think of amelia as not being alone in her redheaded dimness.

the wacom tablet will arrive this week, thanks to my love. 8^)
i doodled on his tablet some this weekend and have a makeshift strip to post. it's off the storyline, but at least it's an update.
and while i do that, i'll work on the dialouge for the next strip, since ken also got my scanner to work.

he just comes over and the scanner just work's for him. huh. oh,well. i'm glad it works, now.
next week will be a normal comic, thanks to him.
now if i can get jo to hook my computer up to the internet, i'll be set.
