Not my best comic. I've been relying on the 'cute' style too much lately, but I've lacked the inspiration to break from it seems.

A few readers have been voicing their concern that I haven't been posting rants lately. My apologies. Truth is, a lot has been on my plate and my energy low. I continue to strive to get a certain project out into your hands and I hope that will wrap up soon.

However, what's even more pressing to me is that very soon, exactly 6 months since I asked her the question, Jessica and I will be married. Happily it seems everything is coming together and all that's left to worry about is making sure everyone gets there safely. I'm really excited, to be put simply and it's been on my mind perpetually. I can only imagine the hours I've spent on the phone making arrangements to Ohio with friends and family, and Jes's phone time probably doubles mine.

See, currently, we live and work in San Francisco, as been seen in the strip. However, the wedding is in Ohio, our home state. Makes things a little harder to assemble.

What this means to you, the readers, though, is that I'm going to have very little time to update in the two weeks I'm out of town. I'm trying to get something done ahead of time so you can at least see a fresh post each week, but I've learned these last 9 years, never to promise anything.

Thank you to for all your emails and support. And thank you for letting me share with you this happy time in our lives.

For Christmas orders out of the store, Jeff has encouraged us to give "a gentle nudge to International Customers to order before 30 November if they want to ship using International First Class. After that, we'll encourage International Priority or better."

I know, I know, it's not even Black Friday yet, but better early than late for shipping information.

And here's the comic.

On the down side, I'm probably going to lose a $5 bet that Obama would not reach 375 electoral votes or +10% of the popular vote. The final states haven't been called yet, so we'll see.

On the up side, I'm due $50 from Pontus Madsen, who was convinced that there was no way in hell that the U.S. would ever elect a black man with "Hussein" as a middle name. Take that, Sweden!

I have a new bet with Dom on how movies will demonstrate that they take place in an alternate reality now that the president actually is black. He says Asian president. My money is on female Muslim president.

Problems in matching sets.

Tuesday night, I finished the project that canceled last week's comic and backed it up. I then started working on the comic for this week and my computer shut down. I haven't been able to get it to start back up.

I get passed the beginning bios boot screen then it hangs at a blinking cursor on a blank screen.

Until I can figure this out, I'll try and do the comic on Jes's computer Wednesday night. I'm sorry for the double delay on updates. I really want to show off my latest accomplishment so you can understand what my time has been feeding into, but it'll continue to wait until it's designated time, regardless of the comic's status.

Poor XPS, how many more years do you have left in you? You've served me so well... er... Ignoring the three fried video cards and four HD wipes... Besides that it's a spotless record.

I dunno, don't read too much into this. It's just funny when people whose job involves cultivating a respectable image flip the hell out. Which seems to be a good summary of the past couple of weeks.

Speaking of good summaries, here's a non-stick figure writeup of how we got here.

I've got to step up for comics 101-200, though.

Well, according to my comic file labellings, this is comic #100. Not the most amazing mark on the comic wagon trail, hell there's comics out there in the thousands, but to me, every 50 just means, that we've made it, with this new comic, through another year with out getting sick of it.

Looking back through the archive, it makes me happy to see so many different rendering styles for the comic over the last year. I hope that Matt feels his writing has been flexible as well for this run. After all the comic really serves as a way for the both of us to keep up skills we might not work out in our day jobs.

Also, if you check out the banner above you'll see we're starting to gear up for the winter sales. These outerwear are just the first of what we have planned over the next two months. I hope you dig our offerings and want to support our efforts with a purchase. Check it, our first hoodie!
