Counting Bra Straps in Church Because I Can

I was walking along some downtown avenue
I was whistling a new song to myself
And it went, it went something like this one
But I just couldn’t make it end

Speeding Home for the Holidays

We’re on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride
Maybe you wonder where you are
I don’t care
Here is where time’s on our side
Take you there

Just a quick post for new viewers

with 3 comments

Hi, everyone coming over to here from Pop Candy! Thanks for stopping by, and have a look around. There’s some 600-plus comics in the archives dating back to November 2006, and while it may look like I haven’t posted anything since the end of December 2008…that is not true.

Here’s the deal. I’m catching up on the backlog of daily journal comics, and when I do post them, I change the date of the post to match that with the comic. So, I’m still here, working and drawing away, despite how it looks.

Eventually this post itself will be backposted to make room for the remainder of the comics. But I felt like a little explanation couldn’t hurt.

That said, enjoy my life!

Finding Out There’s No Jury Duty Produces Mixed Emotions

with 2 comments

2008-12-22

So, back in early November 2008 I received a jury duty summons for the dates of December 23 and December 24. This put me in a big slump because it meant I could do little as to planning how I’d like to spend my holidays and such. Still, everyone assured me that there would be no way in Mordor that a trial would actual be set for the holiday week. I shrugged and said I had to wait until the 22nd to call in and see what was what.

As you can see, the call went in my favor. No jury duty…for ANYONE. The courthouse shut down for the remainder of December. I’m pretty sure they knew they’d do this for some time so why make everyone wait until the last minute possible to alert them. Gah. The system makes no sense to me.

Until next time, jury duty. Until next time.

And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just raining
Ain’t no need to go outside

We’re Adorable Nappers, I Guess

Um, in case you are having trouble napping on your own, here’s a helpful how-to…

I’ve been stuck on your foreign eyes
They have struck for better boys
We put your lives on our shoulders
But these arms are too weak to hold us

Who watches the Watchmen?

Sorry, couldn’t help myself on that one. Anyways, despite this being the 12/20/08 comic, I’m really posting it on 02/08/09 (yes, I know, it’s stupidly confusing), which means I’m back from New York Comic Con. And it. Was. Awesome! How awesome, Paul, you ask? Well, I went there with three hopes: (1) Meet Bryan Lee O’Malley and pick up the new Scott Pilgrim book; (2) Meet Aaron Douglas, a.k.a. Chief Galen Tyrol from Battlestar Galactica; and (3) buy a new Munchkin set.

Of those, the first two were successfully met, and that more or less means it was an awesome con. Definitely wanna hit it up again in October 2010. Below are three photos for y’all to enjoy (thanks, Mon!):

The First Big Snowstorm of the Season

with 7 comments

2008-12-191

Here’s how one of the photos turned out.

Of course, since then, Clifton’s been slammed a high number of times with dumpings of snow and it is no longer as exciting as it once was. Unless you’re six years old, and then it rocks because it definitely means one thing and one thing only: day off of school. Ah, nostalgia is washing over me as I type. Let’s end on this note then…

We’ve only got one chance to put this at an end
And cross the patron saint of switchblade fights
You said we’re not celebrities, we spark and fade
They die by threes, I’ll make you understand
And you can trade me for an apparition
