Of secondhand embarrassment. 

So I did my first hive inspection of Ambleside yesterday.

Did you see my video?

I finally met the queen and named her. She is officially Queen Margaret Agatha.

And she’s busy making babies.

She’s been here two weeks today and she has already got capped brood. And the other bees were hard at work as well. Comb is being made and filled with nectar and pollen. I’m so proud of my ladies.

I got done with most of my work early in the day.

Sometime around early afternoon my headache showed up. I knew it must be ibuprofen o’clock…

Tuesday, April 17

The rest of the day was a wash of talking comics and letterpress printing.

I went by Underground Ink to help them unload their new type saw. It’s so cool.

I need to work on my new studio.

Right after I win the lottery.

Because I can barely afford comics right now. Because I’m a grown up.

And being a grown up is expensive.

Luckily my loving friends are supporting my habit by loaning me their comics. Both physical and digital.

Reading comics on the iPad isn’t nearly as enjoyable as reading the real thing, but the ability to carry around 1000 comics with me to wait around for a repairperson is kinda nice. Plus I don’t have to worry about it getting all jacked up in my backpack.

I started Planetary, but took a slight pause to binge read all of Deadly Class. I’m halfway to being caught up with the series right now. Then I’ll pick up where I left off with Planetary.

After that I may get caught up on Black Science or I may start Birthright. I also need to finish the first omnibus of the Sandman. Then read Lucifer. Not to mention Fables and Hellblazer. Oh, and I can’t forget Transmetropolitan which I read maybe the first three trades of over a decade ago. Which means I drank those memories away. So I’ll need to reread all of that and then the rest of it. Of course there’s Kingdom Come and Identity Crisis which I missed. And Umbrella Academy. Oh, and I can’t forget the rest of all things Hellboy. Locke & Key, East of West, and the list goes on.

That’s just serial books. That’s not counting all the graphic novels I’ve missed.


I never should’ve stopped reading comics to chase girls.

Biggest mistake of my life.


Moving on.

Today is Wednesday.



In that case, I’ve got to go up the hill for work at some point. I might have J-Bird shave my head. I think I’m doing a video shoot with the Rev. Dark Wombat at some point as well. Maybe shooting the intro to his YouTube videos about smashing things with the giant hammer. That sounds right.

I need to sleep, but I’m gonna attempt to workout.

So dumb.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
