What are the haps my friends

November 9th, 2011: Both of these are real: "Yo" has been used as a pronoun and Ryan believes that even more cusses can be used instead of "bitches"! I am joining him in spreading this around. So feel free to be ENTIRELY JUSTIFIED in using either of these, because as the old saying goes, "speak the language you want to have, not the language you have".

(Not a real saying, I just made it up now and it's really just ripped off of that saying about dressing for jobs that says if you work a sucky job you should wear a pant suit because bosses love promoting folks in pant suits)

(Whoah it turns out pant suits are women's suits! I thought it was any suit with pants, I have been making references to my sweet pant suit for ages. WELL THAT EXPLAINS THE CHUCKLES)

NEW DINOSAUR COMICS BOOK! Dinosaur Comics: Everybody Knows Failure Is Just Success Rounded Down.

There's a very limited number of these that can be signed and sketched in by me, so if that sounds like the kind of thing you'd say "wow that is a good idea!" you should get on that quick!

The book features a year's worth of comics, awesome new indices including an n-gram analysis I ran, AND an introduction by Andrew Hussie, whose long-standing interest in me is well-documented. You can also get this and the other DC book in a two-pack full of savings! THIS IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN; IT'S - IT'S PRETTY OKAY

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: three hidden comic extras enter the website's html markup - one of them leaves (it up to you to find the others)

big ups and shouts out
