- It was kind of an eventful week, leaving me very little time to do
anything in my creative life (though I still managed to do a little bit
of writing). I spent a lot of the time in between just trying to breathe
and read and watch cartoons and stuff.
- Saturday was
Drink and Draw. We had a fairly small crowd and I got to hang out with
Eric and get some of my comics done. (I usually have to post the new
issue of the fantasy webcomic every Friday, but since I had Friday night
plans, I had to get it done ahead of time!)
- Sunday I
did some writing, and Monday I spent a fair amount of time that would
have been better spent elsewhere analyzing cartoons on a blog entry, so read it and make me feel like it wasn't a bunch of rambling nobody saw. ;)
to bake cupcakes on Tuesday night and do a bunch of reading for the
book club book I hadn't finished. And then Wednesday, which is usually
Jeaux Day, I had Jeaux over with Victor and Tia and we played Cards

birthday. I got my very belated presents from them for my birthday too.
was book club and I hated the book we read so I was kind of sullen
about having spent all that time reading it, haha. Except for one person
who didn't finish the book because he was bored, it seemed like I was
the only one who like really, really hated it. We ate at a restaurant
called Holy Hog where I had side dishes (macaroni, fried okra, french
- And Friday I WENT TO SEE WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE WITH JEAUX and it was pretty super great. The musical guest, Dessa, played some pretty awesome pieces at the beginning, and then the presentation was a goofy murder mystery dinner theater plot. Everyone was adorable. Especially Carlos's terrible accents, lordy. Jeaux and I also snacked on Five Guys food before the show and hung out at my place watching cartoons after the show (mostly getting started on Gravity Falls because I want to know what it's about and Jeaux likes that show).
