What are the haps my friends

August 30th, 2011: I wrote this comic while stuck in 14 hours of traffic between Toronto and MA! Other things I did while parked in bumper-to-bumper in traffic:

  • Got angry
  • Got sad
  • Made peace with "emotions"
  • Bought a can of cola from a woman who set up a hand-delivery cola shoppe by the side of the road
  • Talked on a walkie talkie until the batteries died
  • Watched my wife walk to the car behind us where they were eating chips, and then she came back with a bag of chips
  • Got passed by someone walking on foot
  • Tried to guess wifi passwords of the houses we were passing; how is "homeiswherethisis" not unlocked by "theheart" or "yourheart", I ask you
All in all it was more fun than I could've reasonably expected!


Holy crap look what I made; I made the best poster:

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: this comic inspired by my good friend joey comeau, who when he lived with me was mr "candy and red bull for breakfast, candy and red bull for lunch, all-you-can-eat buffet of tummyaches, regret and recriminations for dinner"
