Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind.

Comics Drawing while Eating Chocolate
Hmm. I wonder if everyone is as busy as I am... it seems everyone but Sleepyzoe, who has just dropped her boy, is updating quite irregularly.
I am slowly getting the comics done I need to do. I does look like everything will go ahead... I talked to the printer and all should go well if I manage to get everything done, and put on Quark by Sat Jan31, and sent to them to arrive Fedex on Monday Feb 2... or possibly a day or two later if I really get stuck.
Eekola and omigosh! It will happen though. If I can get all the comics done by Sunday, my editor friend has found someone who will scan in the pages for $2 a shot. Yes that is money, but at least someone not me will be doing it, leaving me time to paint the color cover for the book. And then I would have the whole week from Monday to Friday to paste it up into Quark.
I know this is a technical and boring essay for those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about. *I* don't even know what I'm talking about... I am attempting to repeat what others have told me in bits and pieces, often enough and in some sort of linear fashion that it all makes sense in my head and forms a coherent pattern. Haha.
Some people apparently take a year's class to learn Quark. I shall have a twohour tutorial this Friday. hehe. But then it is sort of like an illiterate needing to spell their name. They haven't really learned to read, and probably aren't even aware of all the other letters of the alphabet, but they can slap down their John Doe when needed. Voilą!!
So, now for those who want more technical shit, here are some tips:
Well, that is all my wisdom for right this moment. I hope that was helpful for all you aspiring cartoonists and illustrators.
I must leave you now to get more work done. I have great ambitions to finish my "Yes We Don't Want No Bisexuals: part2" comic before 7am. I must be up at 2pm as the computer guy is coming to install more memory on my 'puter. yay. Then I can install a new Photoshop5 and also the Quark. That is quite exciting. Maybe I should add to my above list: It is difficult to focus on work when one has new software recently installed. hehe.
I have no idea what my horoscope of today was refering to. Oh well!! :)
Here is my horoscope for Wednesday, January 21:
