“I couldn't live a week without a private library
- indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor
before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.” ― H.P. Lovecraft

Had a good time tonight.

Went over to Ryan and Raychel's place for Ryan's 24th birthday.

So we're playing a rousing game of asshole with a deck of those playing cards with the Iraqi most wanted on them when I noticed that everyone pictured on them had moustaches. I guess it's a religious thing or something.

It was then that I came up with my plan for peace in the Middle East.

Kill everyone with a moustache.

This would leave the young men and probably 50% of the women, so it's not totally heartless.

To every family that has one of theirs executed we give a digital satellite system so they can taste the freedom of our airwaves.

You know, for their trouble and all.

Given the proliferation of 'reality TV' this will ensure they never get any smarter.

Within a week they'll all completely love us and begin emulating us or they'll commit suicide.

Either way I'm happy.

Well since I've now lost all faith that the government will ever get off it's ass and decide whether or not a guy with a basketball-sized hole in his abdominal wall is disabled or not (funny, my fucking employers had no trouble coming to a decision on the matter) I'm now scrambling to grab whatever cash I can to keep all my utilities turned on.

What does this mean to you?

It means I've finally put some stuff on my Cafe' Press store that someone might want to buy.

Yes, there is now official Lil' Zombie merchandise to be had!

I hate just asking people for money, but oddly enough, I don't mind asking them to buy crap with my artwork smeared on it, so BUY YOU BASTARDS, BUY!!!

Right now there's just one T-shirt design, but more will follow as demand dictates. Think of this as the 'Limited Edition' shirt.

I'd have put stuff up sooner, but I wanted to work out a promotional thing with Zombie and put store links on CIM, but since nobody has seen or heard from her since August and I need cash I've broken down and done it by myself.

Zombie, if you read this, just contact me and I'll do some exclusive stuff for CIM.

Also, since I want to continue doing Lil' Zombie and both CIM and Book Talk still haven't printed the strips I did back in October I'm looking into another publishing option. CIM and Book Talk will both be more than welcome to display both the old and new strips, and I'll allways think of CIM as Lil' Zombie's home, but I've got to get the new ones out.

I'll keep you all posted.
