[72] Vocabulary

Scrabble with the Decemberists:  Okay, new rule, Colin isn't allowed to use his dictionary of archaic words any more.
This should be read as a cheer for the new Decemberists album: The Hazards of Love. It takes a few listens but I promise you'll fall in love with it. If you're not familiar with the Decemberists or Colin Meloy, they are famous for their obscure vocabulary and flowery lyrics.

[71] Empty Nest Syndrome

I built this garden for my kids.  They never really appreciated it, though.  Things are so much more pleasant here since the apple incident.Note: G. Xavier Robillard (pictured here) is not, actually God. I say this because the world does not need his ego to get any larger.

Special thanks to Ali McCart, my lovely editor, for all the things she helped me with in preparation for Stumptown Comic Fest. If you need an editor you should definitely check out her company. She's totally boss.

[!] SkidmoreBluffs at Stumptown Comic Fest?!!

Greetings lovely readers,

My publicist / spankin' hot table-girl "Bookseller Chick," has directed me to remind you all that there will be a Skidmore Bluffs table at the Stumptown Comic Festival this weekend. There will also be more than a hundred other fantastic tables there. You should all come down and support your local comic creators. (especially me)

I'll have several brand-new 1" pinback buttons, prints of some of the more popular comics, and free hugs for anyone who asks! (I don't know where the free hugs thing came from, I'm delerious.)

Also G. Xavier Robillard will be sharing a table with me. He's the author of Captain Freedom : A superhero's quest for truth, justice, and the celebrity he so richly deserves. (Harper Collins) and he'll be giving away copies of his book if you can answer some fiendishly tricky trivia questions.

See you there!

[69]Rope Swing

I never found out how billy got up to the abandoned alien warship, but that rope swing was legendary.Note: For some reason the comic has been a lot of people flying through the air lately. I promise to change it up a bit next week.
