It's been a rough weekend. I added a whole extra job on top of my completly full Kodocha
schedule, and Evan has been struggling with his arm and neck pain to finish a new M&C strip. So, we've basically been working every moment we weren't asleep (and probably having nightmares about working, but I can't be sure) since last Friday. And our car battery is dead, and we don't even have the time to call AAA and sit outside and wait for them, so we couldn't go anywhere even if we wanted to. The only real interruption we've had all weekend was a lot of commotion last night because of an enormous manhunt after two cops were killed not too far from here. It started getting really freaky when they hadn't found the 3rd guy after over 5 hours and were still
searching this area. We started (we were, remember, very tired) thinking he must be hiding around here under someone's house or something. Not a comforting thought at 1 am. But that was nothing compared to when Evan heard rustling behind the house at about 4 am, which turned out to be some (I think slightly drunk) guy trying to go up the stairs behind another house in the dark to get to his car. Whew. Talk about a long night. I won't even get started on the fact that these cops were murdered while trying to bust a 19-year old who sells machine guns
. I understand that there are, in fact, perfectly good reasons someone might have a gun. But why does anyone
need a submachine gun? Obviously not for any good. Anyway, I wasn't supposed to get started on that.
On HoF stuff: my proposal is finished, and it came out pretty alright. Here's hoping. Kodocha is just about done, (but it's not late yet so no big deal). I haven't had time to get involved with it here, but I've added a link to the RSS feed of Evan's journal for those of you who are interested. I expect to get around to it here, um...maybe next week. Oh, and there will be a M&C shirt, a reworking of the "Here They Come" shirt, available at a few Hot Topic stores sometime this month. More details on that when we get them.
And for those of you keeping track, no I did not find a good recipe for the luau yet. I never realized that luau recipes (and I'm looking in several places) are mainly just meat and dessert. Neither of which are needed. Phooey.
