Yeah, and a top o' the mornin' and a happy St. Patrick's Day to you. Honestly, I don't know why this holiday is such a big deal. It's not like the people who celebrate it need an excuse to drink like a fish... Anyway, about the extent of my celebration will be eating a corned beef sandwich at Primanti's.

Should be a double-strip tomorrow (that's Thursday), and also on Friday. I'd originally scheduled the double strip for today, but I wasn't feeling so hot during the Daily Show and decided to get some rest. I did get some work done on the first of the strips, though, so I'm still on schedule.

Sigh. Sorry this double strip took so damn long to load. We're having phone troubles that prevent me from getting on-line at home. Plus, I'm out of CD-Rs, so I basically had to re-scan and re-tone the strip at work.

I also have a good chunk of work done on the Friday strip, but it's complicated enough that I can't replicate it easily. So rather than upload it today, or over the weekend, I'll do another double strip on Monday. And then we'll be all caught up.

Also, for those of you who care, the release date of Hellboy is fast approaching... If you haven't seen this featurette, check it out. It'll definitely stoke your enthusiasm for the movie.

Music: The Monkees, "Daydream Believer"
