Kero asleep

Hail the Conquering ... Er ... Us?

We're back from our trip to visit laurie_robey's folks down in Tidewater. Nothing major to report about that, although I do have one comment: I'd kinda like to see a sticker on the back of a car that has Calvin peeing on the phrase "jerks who don't respect copyrights." Or maybe the phrase "jerks who put stickers of Calvin peeing on stuff on their car."

Without access to drawing table, word processor, or internet, I finally had no capacity to do any of the stuff preventing me from reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, so I did so. Non-spoiler reaction: There were no real surprises in this book, but it was a much more entertaining read than Goblet of Fire and way better than Order of the Phoenix. Like orders of magnitude better. Still not on par with Chamber of Secrets or Prisoner of Azkaban. Collapse )

That's all for now; I wonder if I have enough energy left to draw a strip for tomorrow? Unfortunately, I'm leaning towards "no" at the moment. 11+ hours in the car this weekend, after a hellacious work-week, le sigh.

Edit: I know for a fact that people all over my friends list were talking about this book, but now I can't seem to find anybody's entries about them, with the exception of indigoskynet. So now I guess I'll never know what all that commentary I avoided was, alas!
