    As you probably expected, it's a skip week. But, you know, it's also a very good opportunity to reread Volume 4 from the beginning (or order a hard copy for easier page flipping).

    How's everyone doing this week? Is it really Spring yet? It kinda was on Monday, and then it dropped back down to rainy jacket weather for the rest of the week, bah.

    Are Avatar going to be at the London Expo again? I'll probably get Volume 4 there if so.

    Mmm, Paul is there, isn't he? Will he have any with him? I have vols 1, 2 and 3 all signed by him (and only one by Mr Ellis, bah) and I also threw him by getting him to sign his winning 'Rising Stars of Manga' book last Expo (from way back when he was a teeny little up-and-comer :D)...anyway I'm waffling - would very much like Paul to be there with volume 4 to sign for me!

    This week, despite the weather, has been good - I was 33 on Wednesday and I'm shipping off the 5 year old and having a party tomorrow. Hubby bought me a Wii (yeah, I'm so behind, I know) and I spent vouchers from all his family on about a trillion comics, tpbs and officially-graphic-novels that I wouldn't have been able to afford, so I remember why birthdays can still be awesome even when you don't have jelly and ice cream. (Though I did of course have cake). I *think* champagne beats jelly and ice-cream, though yesterday morning I was not so convinced. For party tomorrow I am already anticipating the rum with excitement...

    Spring has been fairly springy in my part of the world, but I can tell you with some authority that it isn't camping weather yet. A group of us found this out last weekend. I still feel a bit like Shackleton. In other news, science has confirmed that I am oficially STI free, which is a releif.

    Happy birthday claire!

    Gah, should've known. But thank you Ariana for your thanks and your work (Warren Paul et al. also)

    Spring seems to have skipped straight through to Autumn here in the UK, though the promise it'll get warmer over the next few days. That said we got the BBQ out for my birthday last weekend. Which means I am now in a new age bracket in survey. hmmph.

    I will be in Las Vegas when volume 4 comes out. Thanks for your work.

    Last Friday it was 10C here in my part of Finland, today it's 28C. I went from winter coat to t-shirt in less than a week.

    A skip week? NOOOOOO!!!

    But seriously, anyone who expected anything different was deluding themselves :)

    Weather is finally shifting towards Autumn/Fall in my part of the Southern Hemisphere. Nights well into the single figures and rain. Although apparently said rain isn't going to hang around for more than a few days. Actually that's what the 'Angels can do with Mark, send him down here to call up some decent storms for us. The risk of psychic domination is more than worth it if it fills up the dams.

    I was devastated when I saw the skip week notice, as this is my first Friday after having read the entire FreakAngels archive - my first time checking at noon for a new episode! That said, I'm not surprised by it at all, and this is probably the best time for it.

    Roll on next Friday.

    I have my standing order for each volume at my local comic store of choice. I got the signed version of Vol. 1, but now I get just the regular 'HB' copy. I prefer the covers on those by far.
    Wrapping up the last of the doctor visits this morning and will make treatment decision soon.
    Weather this week in the Old Pueblo was what living in Tucson is all about; almost perfect. Today's expected high should be around 87 degrees.

    It just makes sense to take as many breaks as possible when you do this kind of work.
    You can't possibly expect quality images and story, if it's just like a job.
    Or, as Maynard G. Krebs would say, " - JOB ! ? ? ? ! ! ! "

    I forgot that the word that freaked out Maynard was "work" but same thing.

    Artists and Writers enclosed and contained in boxed units of time and schedules are responsible for such creative things as the Laugh-tracks in situation comedies that insult your intelligence by telling you when to laugh.

    The creative people who do the best work can't do that in regular predictable intervals because that's not how creativity works. I might not like cliff hangers, but I don't mind at all waiting until the presentation is polished and ready.

    Spring is definitely here in the GTA. Exploding with green and rain. It look like Super Mario Land outside my apartment building.
    Been a rotten week though- Still can't find a job, and it's getting depressing. Gotta start selling my comics and stuff. Sucks.
    Thru dieting and exercise and a lack of fun money, I have lost 15 pounds since this time last month.
    I do feel much better, but my blood pressure is still thru the roof. 45 pounds to go.
    I lost one of my best buddies on Tuesday -Nova, my 16 year old cat, quite suddenly even though at his age we knew every day we had with him was a gift. I take comfort in knowing that he is with is brother Boss on the other side now.
    Broke a filling on one of my molars yesterday, and now my mouth is a symphony of pain. No job = no dentist, however.
    Ah well, back to drawing for me. Hope you all have a great week.

    No Freakangels :(. I really wanted to see Miki's reaction to Luke. As to my week, It snowed on sunday, then was 60's on monday, dropped to 30's on tuesday, and has been too hot ever since. Typical.

    School's out! School's out!
    Teacher's let the fools out!
    No more reading, no more books
    No more teacher's dirty looks!

    Weather is warmerish. Hopefully it will be nice on the river this weekend for our crews. <5mph winds please Karl.

    Avatar won't be at London expo this time, but I'll be there doing a signing at the Diamond stand. I can't say whether there'll be any volume 4 available by then. William may know?
  6.  (8222.15)
    Hm, the 29th... book 4 is to press but I'm not sure it will be shipped out in time for that, I guess it'll be close. If I find out for sure later I'll let you know.

    Just this second got informed that I'd been successful at interview, and am now a member of the working elite again. I may not particularly want to have innate IT leanings, but I do and it keeps me in cakes. It's also a proper, 9/5 job, which may sound shitty, but after well over a year of working all the hours god sends, I'll be grateful, and hopefully supported by a little steadiness, and get some real me time.
    Sorry to hear about Nova @Rooth.

    How's everyone doing this week?
    working on my second 16 fl oz Red bull today. might turn out to be a bad idea. F it.

    Another week gone and I have nothing to show for it. I can't not bother with trying but it's depressing knowing I'll fail. Fuck.

    I kind of expect this is a FAQ somewhere, but is there some sort of "and then the series ends" arc, or could this potentially go on penned by warren's zombie-corpse two hundred years from now?

    Along those lines, are there going to be options to collect the comics in something larger than TPs? Like 4 volumes or 8 volumes or 20 volumes at a time? :)
