I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving as much as I enjoyed mine.
Woo-hoo! 30 episodes of Bitchcraft! Who woulda though we’d last this long! To celebrate such a momentous event right after a day full of turkey, I thought you’d enjoy some chicken
Honestly, I started drawing this one on Friday morning and I spent all weekend drawing and I just now finished it! Lots of work went into this one., and it’s bigger than usual, because that’s the best way I could figure out how to pace the script.
The comic above actually happened, by the way, although I did NOT threaten to set the woman on fire. I did make her leave the campsite, though. And at the end of the day, when I was cleaning up the site, I found two cigarette butts buried in the leaves behind the cabin. I should have checked when the woman left, because had those butts been burning, they would have started a huge fire.
Huzzah for poop jokes! And for today’s webcomic being on time!
Yeah, I’m late. It’s been one of those weeks. A week that included the above scene.
I’ve been working all week to get this one done. And yeah, it’s late, but ya know what? Free ice cream is free frikkin’ ice cream!
Sorry I’m late. Once again, Girl Scouts took over my life. This past Saturday, I spent the day working at a service unit encampment. I got to the camp site at 8AM and was on my feet working until I got back in my car to go home at 9PM. It was an exhausting day, and no matter how hard I tried on Sunday, I couldn’t see straight enough to draw the webcomic. I managed to get today’s strip pencilled and lettered and then had to quit. And since today was Veteran’s Day, and I am a veteran (and was still exhausted, to boot), Hubster let me sleep in late. So I got a late start on finishing up the inking and coloring today.
But about the content of today’s strip! I’ve been having joint pain for a while. Most days, it’s what I think is probably regular arthritis pain in my knees. Lately, that’s spread to my hips and ankles as well. Some days it’s better and some days it’s worse. And then there are days where my joints feel so achey and inflamed that I think I have the flu, only I don’t have any other symptoms. Those days I end up staying in bed, curled up with the heating pad, accomplishing almost nothing.
So I finally decided to see a doctor. I opted to have a full physical, which meant I scheduled the appointment in July and got in to see the doc just last week. She ordered a slew of blood tests, all of which came back negative for any diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. But she also prescribed a pain medication for me since I told her the normal over-the-counter stuff wasn’t doing anything for me at all.
She warned me to take the pill before bed, since dizziness and sleepiness were the two biggest side-effects. I followed her directions, I swear! And yet somehow, the next morning when I woke up, I couldn’t tell up from down. And I had a big case of the uncontrollable giggles on top of that!
It took about 4 hours for the dizziness and loopiness to wear off. The next day wasn’t quite as bad, and the day after that the only issue I had was being too sleepy to get up in the morning. I’m still having that problem so tonight I plan to be in bed by 9:30PM.
But the good news is, the pain meds work! I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but for the first time in a long time, I don’t hurt. I may get the occasional twinge of knee pain, but I can now bend my knees, get up and down the steps, take karate class… I feel like a whole new me!
I’ll keep you all updated on how things go, but like I said, I feel much better than I have in a while. So enjoy today’s webcomic. I’m going to get up and move now! ‘Cause I CAN!
I love making webcomics! I love crocheting weird toys! I love being evil!
Slowly but surely, I'm working my way through my books on Etsy. Today, I polished off my profile, and am getting ready to start on the chapters on shipping and packing. Meanwhile, I'm putting together the first small batch of evil crocheted toys. All the pieces have been crocheted, so now I just have to stuff and stitch all the pieces together. Here's what I've got so far…
I know right now this is just a pile of dismembered limbs, but they're going to be so cute and evil when I'm done!
Anyway, tomorrow, I'll be reading up on packing and shipping, and I'll be assembling my tiny evil creations. More updates as I progress!
