A Much Needed Break.

From the maelstrom.

Happy Count Your Buttons Day!

October 21 – Count Your Buttons Day

I have nine different buttons on my desk alone.

Cod only knows how many other ones I have around the rest of the house and the studio.

Don’t even get me started on my pins.

Also on my desk, but not exclusively, are a couple of patches that will one day end up on my denim jacket/vest. One says “Ass, Ass, or Ass. Nobody Rides For Free.” which was given to me by the Papa Llama Mama. And the other looks like a fried egg and I got it as a bonus gift for preordering the egg cookbook that Lucky Peach made.

Yesterday I didn’t do shit.

I took the fucking day off.

No yard work.

No worrying about shit I’ve got to do in order to make the next few big things happen.

And no people.

I needed a break.

And a shower.

And a lot of carbohydrates and coffee.

I only wore real pants for an hour or so when I left the house to run a few errands with Jitterbug.

Mostly I just wanted to hold hands and she had errands to run.

So I ran errands with her and we held hands.

Then it was back to my sweatpants and comic reading.

I’m almost caught up on single issues again.

Then I can really sink my teeth into the second library edition of Hellboy.

Today is Monday.

Rest time is over.

Back to work.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
