Okay, even after the weekend I'm still a day behind - but no worries, I'll catch up tonight and it'll be smooth sailing for the rest of the week. More important than that, however, the Carnegie Mellon Tartans crushed the Rose-Hulman Engineers 51-34 at homecoming.

Fight for the glory of Carnegie!
Fight for the glory of the clan!
Let your eyes be ever on the tartan bright
As we stand united every man -
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fight! ev'ry loyal son of Skibo
Fight 'til we win the victory!
The Kilties are coming, hurray! hurray!
The Kilties are coming, they'll win today,
For they're fighting for the glory of Carnegie!

Okay. Last week was really bad for me - what with it getting darker an hour earlier, and work being busy, I was already half-asleep by the time I got home. However, I'm not going to just write last week off the way I did with the week before DragonCon - I'm going to make it up, slowly but surely. I have most of the Tuesday strip drawn, and plan to finish it sometime today, and should get the Wednesday strip up tonight. With any luck, I'll be mostly caught up by the end of the week.
