What are the haps my friends

September 24th, 2010: I am the #1 Fan of Dan Savage (who's printed in The Stranger, which prints my comic too on occasion! YES), and he's started a project I really support, called It Gets Better. The goal is to let gay/lesbian/queer-identified/whatever people in high school know that things do get better when you're done, and Dan's posted a pretty great video about it. I know a lot of people in high school read my comic, so if you're reading these words and feeling like maybe things suck, they won't in a few years! Even if you're TOTALLY STRAIGHT, it gets better for you too. Everything gets better... IN THE FUTURE.

So yesterday I linked to this story in the Express, which, it turns out, may not be the most credible source. So I will leave it to you to decide whether or not to trust the giant squid. PS: Don't trust the giant squid.

To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before or on these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!

December 18th-December 19th: FedEx 2-Day and Overnight might work, but no promises!!

Here that is in GRAPHIC FORM!

One year ago today: followers of my @ryanqnorth twitter account will realize that t-rex's creepy raccoon neighbours have broken out of fiction and are now pooping all over my deck. man, raccoons in toronto need to pay more attention to what they're eating, that's all i'll say
