But why would I want to use toilet paper someone else has already used?

Still no comics, for which I apologize. I'm gonna try to go out and buy the tablet next week, wife willing.

Car repairs were effected for less than I originally figured, but it was still $1600. Ouch.

Also, the wife wants us to switch to recycled toilet paper. Personally, I feel that if it's already been used, it's taken all the crap it's gonna take. Really.

But I'm not against recycling or working to help the environment. We don't leave lights on when we're not in a room, we wash our clothes in cold water (and I only do a load of laundry when it's a full load), we recycle our papers and bottles (both plastic and glass), and Michelle got a Terra Pass for her car (you donate a specific amount of money based on your CO2 emissions and they balance out the bad electricity we use here by using cleaner, environmentally-friendly fuels in developing nations. I need to do the same, 'cause it's a groovy idea). So yeah, I like trying to do my part, I just don't feel that my part requires sacrificing decent toilet paper.

Yes, today's newspost was the one where you learned things about me you didn't really care to learn. Suck it up and deal with it.

Could it be?!

There is the possibility of new comics as early as next Monday.

Stranger things have happened, y'know.

So here's the deal: I still don't have a program to update the comic with. I can't find the program I used to use, and the other programs I wanted to try (Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop) are cost-prohibitive.

But take heart! I'm getting money from my mother and grandparents for my birthday next week, and I plan to take that cash and invest in a tablet attachment for my computer. Apple makes a couple of nice ones in my price range, as it turns out. Soon as I have that in my hot little hands, I can get to work on more comics for all ya'll.

Long story short: we're on hiatus until the beginning of April or so. I'll try to maybe get some of those comics Adam drew for me several months back posted so you've got something new to look at. 'Sides, it's a neat little side story featuring a character that never really got his chance.

So, comic's on hold until I can find the software CD for the program I use to put together the comic.

No, Monkey, this has nothing to do with the fact that I switched to a Mac. I'd have the same issue if I was using a PC.

I've got about a week's worth of comics drawn and a few more sketched out, so there shouldn't be any interruption once I get the software I need. Thanks for bearing with me.

The Great Switcheroo

So we're using Macs at Casa de Cricket now.

Yeah, we made the switch to Macs from PCs this weekend, and I haven't got the the scanner set up with it yet. Hopefully you'll have a comic tomorrow night.

Hurray for Apple!
