Oh Autumn

Fri 9/30/2005

I've been hiding from my friends this week and trying to get caught up on HOMEWORK and SLEEP. I even FINALLY got to work on Basewood again, after an almost two-week hiatus (yikes!)

I'm kind of bummed, I have to go away AGAIN this weekend. That'll mean more craziness when I get back. Oh well, it's for a good cause (my cousin is getting married!) But after that I'm going to stay put for a while... Try to settle back into the routine...

People in the Portland area should remember to go to the Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend. I'm SO JEALOUS I can't go, I know it's going to be REALLY amazing this year, plus all my friends are going to be there! Also, 7pm on Friday night Aaron will be having a book signing at Reading Frenzy that you don't want to miss!

HEY--I forgot to mention, AUTUMN has finally arrived in New York!!! There are just a few brave leaves starting to fall here and there but it's officially cold enough that I put my shorts away (HURRAH!!!) and I've worn my hoodie a few times. It's usually too hot for it if I'm walking around, but then I need it when I'm sitting still in class. Also it has rained FOR REAL a few times off and on over the last few days. I can't tell you how happy this makes me.

Just wanted to let you know that I get your blog now over in California. You should work hamsters into one of your comics to commemorate our hamster-world from 3rd grade or whenever the hell that was.

Glad to hear the blog is coming in loud and clear in California... It's too bad we don't have a scan of that hamster "drawing" (Chad and I taped together something like FIFTY sheets of paper in 3rd grade and drew a GIGANTIC, insanely detailed tunnel system which hamsters lived, worked and played).

That picture is pretty cute, I wish that leaves changed colors in Savannah.

Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you are having a wonderful day and that your 26th (?) year is your best yet!

Yeah, I went to the comics fest. And it was good. Except for one little detail. I picked up one of your comics at the zine symposium, liked it, and assumed "hey, I bet this guy'll be at the comics fest and I can pick up more of his stuff!" But nooo. Instead I found out from a guy handing out those cute little 'vote longstreth' booklets that you moved away to NY. What gives, man? Oh, well. Thank heavens for the internet!

I thought about you all day on your birthday but forgot to tell you. Your present was the fall, I'm glad you liked it. If you're a good little boy, I'll let it last until winter. I love you, brother.

Aww, thanks Sis! Fall was my favorite present this year. :)
