I became famous this week! Not only was I in Velocity but the new Bejeezus
is out with one of my comics in it. Surely the publishing contracts and marriage proposals will come pouring into my inbox now.
But I should be realistic. That sort of fame brings IOUs and awkward groping.
PS. Will Oldham played a secret show in the post office this morning. He was wearing crocs. Take that, everyone who ditched me and Daniel last night!
PSS. The reason my writing skills are so poor today is Daniel's bad influence on my drinking habit. Or possibly a degenerative brain disease I caught when he was rubbing his gangrene-infected foot on me last night.

JWoolard already thinks I'm pretty dirty (see #46) so I'm glad she didn't see me last night.
For those of y'all not from Louisville, LAVA House was a warehouse of artist's studios and performance/party space. It burned down this winter. It is now a large slab of concrete thats good for late night bowling and setting off fireworks.

Sorry about the lack of comics ... I'm feeling unmotivated and unfunny. I have been working on Milkyboots #5, however, and it should be done fairly soon.
I ended up with four days off in a row this week. I've been mostly being a homebody, which I need, but still gets kind of lonely and depressing. I don't know what to do with myself; I haven't been enjoying going out to bars and it seems like no one is around anymore. And the people who are here are as depressed as I am.
I'm trying to 'take care of myself.' I can't tell if its working or not. What does it take to feel better anyway?
Blah, blah, blah...boring.
