Our high school batch reunion meeting was cancelled tonight since there is a storm raging outside right now. Good thing too since I had enough time to finish and submit next week's Thanksgiving Day strip. While before I thought that working on one comic strip for three hours was a record in itself, working almost eight hours on one comic strip takes the record a notch higher from Guinness Book of World Records
to Ripley's Believe It Or Not
. Two thirds into editing the strip I came up with a craving for Sbarro
's spaghetti and meatballs (more on this when the strip is posted next week)
. The rain was pouring down as "all git' out" but that didn't stop me from going down to the mall with a book in hand. Some parts of the metropolis were flooded to the annoyance of some pedestrians (especially on that one pass near the mall)
. I was surprised to see the place was still almost full even though it was nearly closing time. Good thing I was still able to grab a seat (one of the advantages of going solo)
and after an hour's worth of relaxation and unwinding I went home and finished the rest of the strip. Finally submitted the sucker by email just now. Can't wait to post it online and show it to you guys.
