West of Bathurst 1100

A few orders of business:

1) In rather random and not at all coincidental celebration of WoB's 1,100th comic, I have posted four geeky songs of my very own online; you can get at them via the WoB Talk blog (they're hosted on Audioboo, but I've provided links and an explanation). I've also stuck a link under "Completely Random Stuff" on the "Miscellaneous" page. I may as well provide direct links here as well, so: "Dear George R. R. Martin," (self-explanatory), "Kids These Days" (old vampire puzzled about Twilight craze), "Love Song" (doubly self-explanatory, though not in a good way), "We Protest the Robot Occupation" (well, why wouldn't we?). My voice is, er, "average," but at least the songs will give you some idea of what goes on in my brain.

2) If you blinked and missed the "Saturday" comic, which appeared on Sunday, please click on "Previous."

3) The Clarion Write-a-Thon began on the 24th. On the very same day, I did my first draw for WoB coasters. I changed the entry rules a little too recently and am not sure if everybody caught the change; I thus entered both Tobias Battlestorm, Lord of Chiswyk (not his real name) and A.S., the latter of whom did not contact me to ask to be entered. From here on in, no one who doesnot contact me at kmaaren(at)gmail(dot)com after donating to ask to be entered will be entered, but I can't be sure that A.S. saw the rule-change notice. The results: Tobias, the only donor in Week 1, will walk away with the first coaster, while A.S. has won the second. However, if she does not send me her contact information and preference of coaster by the end of the Write-a-Thon, her prize will go to Tobias. Congratulations, Tobias and A.S.!

Panel 1: Casey and Marie are on Marie's couch. Casey is holding a book; Marie has a laptop on her knees.

Casey: What's that you're writing?

Marie: My Ph.D. thesis.

Panel 2:

Casey: I didn't know you were at the writing stage.

Marie: I've actually finished three chapters.

Panel 3:

Marie: Astonishingly, you're not the only person in the world who can get work done without anybody noticing.


Panel 4:

Casey: Cool. When you have time, could you proofread my four-volume verse epic?

Marie: I hate you.

Alt-Text: It's in rhyming iambic hexameter, of course.
