First Previous Next Last



Yes, it's true: West of Bathurst's fifth birthday is on Sunday. There may be a small extra posted on the actual anniversary, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a fullanniversary comic, even if it turned out to be a trifle early. The title in the title panel is a refence to something WoB-related (you can find it if you try).


My latest write-a-thon-related attempt to garner both your sympathy and $100 more:

1) West of Bathurst's fifth birthday is on Sunday. It deserves extra comics. Please donate.

2) I have just had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. On Wednesday at 8:00 p.m., my building's water went out because the City was doing repairs on the water main. We were supposed to be without water until 6:00 a.m. today (Thursday). Well...the city worked on the water main all night--right outside my window, I might add--and continued to work on it well into the afternoon. Incidentally, the temperature had gone up to 37C, with humidity making it feel more like 48. At about the point I found myself tearing the "We are sorry for the inconvenience" poster off the elevator wall and ripping it into tiny little bits, I decided to escape to my office at the university. So basically, I've had no sleep, I'm dehydrated, I was forced to buy a hat at the dollar store because I forgot mine, and I am once again behind on my marking. Please donate.

Today, all I managed to accomplish writing-wise was to get my manuscript more or less into standard submission format. I'll have to print it out and proofread it (yet again) later.
