Bee-yoo-tee-ful!

It is an absolutely gorgeous day outside, just like it was yesterday. I just had a very pleasant walk around the building, and you couldn't ask for nicer weather.

Hold on a second ... this is Virginia in August. We don't GET nice weather!

What the heck is going on???

*frets, gets worried about impending apocalypse*

Anyway, on to some actual content, since I've been driving everybody nuts posting Oingo Boingo lyrics.

Apparently, "Tiffarella" is generating friction among the ZigZag fanboys. I don't know what exactly they were expecting, but apparently some aren't pleased with her portrayal. Given that she's playing a part in a spoof, all I can guess is that they are wanting either some sort of actual drama around her character (inappropriate for the storyline), or something spoogier (inappropriate for Suburban Jungle). Either way, I'm afraid they're in for disappointment.

However, it's an old truism that you can't please everybody, and the larger an audience you try to appeal to, the more people you won't please. (Go fig!) When Scott proposed the inclusion of ZigZag (and got Max BR's blessing), I laughed my head off and agreed right away, because I thought it was funny -- and that's the SJ trump card. I knew that it would be controversial in its own way, not because of who ZZ is, but because of Scott's distinctive (and non-Schwartzian) art style. If a ZZ fanboy gets his y-fronts in a twist about it, well, on the priority scale of my concerns, that's pretty darn low. Sorry. :)

Hmm ... I have this idea that I had some other stuff to write about, but I've forgotten about it now. Oh well! Guess I'll stop wasting electrons for a while, then. ;)
