Comicgen Not Updating, More Gretchen
OK, a couple more YouTube videos of Gretchen!
Baby Gretchen Plays!
I'm trying to upload one of my friend Chris walking Gretchen, who gets so excited she tries to take a chunk out of her knee, but I am on my third try... instead of getting an "upload successful", I get a totally blank page. drat.
More Videos instead of Comics? Kill me.
Ah, spread the blame around like peanut butter on a hot day!
OK, in the morning I am going to the market to buy tomato and cucumber plants, instead of drawing liliane. There you are. I just have to get them in the ground or they will never produce in time.
In the meantime, here are some more Gretchen videos. They capture both her growth and attitude way better than any comics could (though there will be Gretchen comics in the offing, there will).

What a little cutie!

Am going to nap now.
And you're right, a bunny DOESN'T run in a wheel.
Comics Not Updating at Comicgen Today
Since the new sale image went up immediately last night (I just uploaded a new jpeg with the same name as the one already in the html), I assumed that the comic had updated.
Nope!! I just looked and there is a backlog of 3700 comics waiting to update on comicgen. Drat! Here I thought I was so smart uploading before i went to bed!!
So, sorry, there IS a Wed comic page, not just a new plea to buy stuff!!
Sorry No New Page yet
just like to say sorry to everyone... I just have not had time to do another comic page. I actually pencilled one just now, hoping to post it before I leave the house, but I didn't get it inked. Spent 5 hours unstapling, restapling (copycenter switched covers and interiors of zines on me agh), signing and packing zines the other day, had to do a promo piece for the end of the month for my work, which I finished at 6:30 this morning... slept for 2.5 hours, then went to deliver it, worked on another contract sketches (due today), hoping to be finished early afternoon to do a liliane page, but finished it at 5pm. Had to eat something, pencilled a page, then realized I have to get going: I have something in half an hour and I haven't changed or showered. TMI eh! But yeah, just to say that I might be too tired tonight after not getting enough sleep last night, to ink the new page, and tomorrow I have to be at the subway across town at 9:15 am.
So there might just not be another new comics page until tomorrow evening. I know it sucks, esp when y'all have been so great buying zines to bring Gretchen home. Just too busy. Everything had end of the month deadlines.
Off to get myself vaguely acceptable to see people, and I will do my best asap.
UPDATED Gretchen PHOTO!!
New Gretchen Photo!!
She is now six and a half weeks old. And playing in the hay obviously!
My god she is growing FAST! I sure wish they had a longer childhood! Not as long as people, but really, that is just toooo fast! I'll be so glad to get her home and appreciate her babyhood!
And I'd like to thank everyone who ordered "Bring Gretchen Home" zines and books! Yayyyy!!!!

Cayenne Pepper and Delayed Comics
On the cold front... BONUS HEALTH TIP!!!: If you have a sore throat, put 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper into a cup, add boiling water. Let it cool down to a temperature that you can gargle with. Or sip it slowly.
It will work WONDERS!!! WONDERS I tellya. At five pm I couldn't talk, or even swallow. Yup. I was spitting in the sink, my throat was so painful and swollen. Five minutes after the cayenne pepper treatment... I can talk, I can sing, I can swallow!! wahoo!! So I am sipping more (or again).
note... I thought the cayenne pepper would burn, but it is actually not a problem to drink or gargle with at all. Wow eh!!
And if you don't believe me, you can read the "yea"s on the site that I found the cure on.
