Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon ... and a Lot of Dorkiness.

I did a bit of binge comics work tonight, largely to dissipate stress connected to my dad's rehab stay and related stuff. Unfortunately, it didn't start until around 9:00 p.m., which means that it's now midnight and I'm just heading to bed. On the other hand, I'm now about 4/5 of the way to completing the strip conversion for Childproof the Unicorns.

In order to further shut off my brain while I worked, I watched The Great Race, which comes off more than anything like a prequel to Chitty Chitty Bang-Bang. You've never seen scenery chewed until you've seen Jack Lemmon prancing around as "Crown Prince Frederick Hoepnick" when the movie suddenly and inexplicably turns into Prisoner of Zenda halfway through.

I particularly dig the tandem-bicycle zeppelin-built-for-two. :)

Anyway! It's after midnight, and I need some sleep. G'nite, world, and have an awesome tomorrow. :)
