Okay, I'm writing this at 7:00 on Sunday, and I've been drawing all day, so please bear with me if I'm slightly less than coherent. As you will note, I've finally completed everything up to Halloween, bringing the Frenchman story to a close. By tomorrow morning I should have the first November strip up, and I'll keep slogging along at the rate of one or two strips a day until I'm all caught up. I'll be completely caught up by the end of the week.

Last night I went to a CD release party for my good friend Robert Devereux, who's just released a CD of songs based on sci-fi/horror author Jeff Vandermeer's Ambergris stories. It's neat stuff, very creepy... Visit his site, and check out the music, and maybe order a CD while you're at it. Every dollar gets him closer to his dream house in Hobbiton!

On the other hand, hey, how 'bout them Steelers? Was nice to see them pull off a win with some, y'know, actual offensive touchdowns. And even better, tomorrow I should have a TMQ to help me put things in perspective...
