I don’t have much time for writing these days, but when I do, I like to check in on the comings and goings of Theo and the boys. Ie, a new SuperMegaNet episode has been posted over at the Bermuda Triangle of the Internet.
…I quietly and carefully reach into my pocket, pull out an old receipt. I crumble it, toss it over my shoulder.
“What was that?” Jan asks.
“My dignity,” I reply.
“On a piece of paper?”
“Oh.” A pause. “Is that an American thing?”
“No,” Mini replies on my behalf. “It’s a pompous southern-Californian thing.”
“It was to make a point,” I clarify.
“It was also littering.”
The premise: Bummed about having to smuggle Ernie, Jan, and Mini home after curfew, Theo finds inspiration in the motivational cornucopia that is Surf Ninjas. Read the full episode here.

“Its Friday Night in Laredo and the Texas Turtles are having a little fun before tomorrow at South Texas Collector’s Expo!!!”
Oh, to glance over my shoulder while having a drink at the bar…and to see this!!! #MindBlown (Anyone in the Laredo area, I envy you and your physical proximity to tomorrow’s South Texas Collector’s Expo.)

I stopped in at the most epic CVS drug store ever to pick up some motion sickness pills, and was treated to an odd mix of fluorescent lighting, art deco, and Phil Collins music playing over the PA. It was the most fun I ever had buying medication while simultaneously traveling through time.

This looks like a job for Captain Jamie Kirk—ie, “if it exists, it can be cosplayed.”

Recognize the artwork in that Pearls Before Swine second panel? Someone special drew that. Someone without whom countless childhoods spent reading the Sunday paper would have been all for naught. Here’s a hint:
The idea I proposed was that instead of having me get hit on the head, I would pretend that Pearls was being drawn by a precocious second grader who thought my art was crap. I named her “Libby,” which I then shorted to “Lib.” (Hint, hint: It’s almost “Bill” backwards.)
Follow the link, read Stephan’s story…and bask in the awesomeness that is the return of Mr. Bigfoot himself to the daily comics. Sort of.
