What are the haps my friends

February 1st, 2011: If you're Canadian, I ask that you sign this petition and/or donate to help stop the new usage-based billing laws coming to Canada. They'll change our internet access to be the same as it is for cell phones: charged by the byte, super expensive, and hella terrible.

Also! In happier news, today is Dinosaur Comics Birthday Day! Thank you SO MUCH for reading my comic, sharing the link with friends, and all the other awesome things you do and might in fact be doing RIGHT NOW. It's terrific. It's given me the best job in the world.

Speaking of that! Today I'm in Easthampton at TopatoCo headquarters, snowed in, signing all those books you ordered. (Here I'm using a rhetorical you, I do not believe that one of you ordered all those signed books - OR DID YOU??) If you want a signed copy of my new book where I'll draw T-Rex wearing WHATEVER HAT YOU WANT, order today, because that option will disappear soon!

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 5th: Last day that ALL US shipping methods are safe.
December 12th: Last day that to use USPS Priority or Express for international orders!

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

Here that is in GRAPHIC FORM!
