|Sorry for the delay, everyone. It is quite difficult to work on comics when you're at a convention. It was a fun convention, and I had my first solo concert, so yay. The Monday comic won't take as long to finish, so it should be up later tonight or earlyish tomorrow.|

|Panel 1: In
this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie ponders Barbara, who is carrying
a large backpack and two full red plastic bags. Behind Marie are the
words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren."|
Panel 2: Marie is working on her laptop in the Davies College basement nook. Barbara approaches.
Marie: What's with you?
Barbara: I'm tired.
Panel 3: Barbara sits down.
Barbara: So first there was the Specfic Colloquium. Then World Fantasy. Now it's SFContario, and next weekend, it's Genrecon.
Barbara: This is all in the space of thrree weeks. Three! I'm supposed to be marking!
Marie: Well, you don't have to go to them all.
Barbara: I don't have to...?
Marie: You could skip a few.
Barbara: I could do what?
Marie: You could...not go.
Barbara: I don't understand.
Marie: I think I'm the one who doesn't understand.
Barbara: There are books at these things!
Alt-Text: BOOKS, I TELL YOU. BOOKS! BOOKS!
