January 17th, 2007



There will be a large post later, with photos and such, about how I spent the day yesterday, but first this...

I did not receive ANY submissions for A Child's Guide to Teasing Bees this week (I did get a few stories and poems prior to this weekend).

Several of you (yes, YOU!) said you were writing stories, so where are they?

I did not receive ANY comics, just bee drawings.

Please, if you sent something over the weekend or since, send it again.

If you are working on something but blew the deadline, let me know how long you need.

If you come up with a children's story involving bees in anyway, SEND IT!

For those who volunteered to illustrate, I'll have something to you this weekend, I hope.

uminthecoil, I owe you a non-bee story and reference photo. Hopefully this weekend also.

That's sylvia_wrath's hand, jason0x21, and dollraves's hand


Yesterday, I managed to get off work earlier (only 8 hours), so I convinced Jessica (la_sherazade) that we should go to the Scott McCloud lecture at State(mccloudtour).

I saw several of you there (dirkdada, victor_von, ashears, jlundberg, marrael, among others). I also saw a few old friends from Design School.

I didn't feel like struggling through the crowd to talk to Scott, so I said hi to Sky, witnessed Winter's amazing feats of contortion and gave them both Sinister Bedfellows buttons.

Then jason0x21, sylvia_wrath, badger, dollraves whose LJ name I've momentarily forgotten, Jess and I went out to Lilly's Pizza for, well, pizza and spastic conversation about Peter O'Toole and plane crashes.

Jolly good fun!
