This week I'm still on that schedule where I work 12 hours for 3 days and then am off for the rest of the week. In practical terms it means that you get a long weekend, but you can't stay up late, and the last day of your "weekend" you get up as early as you can and try to get all the things done that you'd normally do during the week, like laundry and shopping, because when you get home after a 12 hour shift all you want to do is fall over. On the other hand, I don't really mind getting up early and being out in the mornings. There are benefits to having a schedule that's more in line with the rest of the world. In other words, it beats third shift.

Nope, not going to San Diego Comic Con, or whatever they are calling it these days. The last time I went, 15 years ago, I already felt it was way too crowded and being overrun with movie studios, video games, and TV producers hyping their newest products - I can't imagine what it's like now. 7th circle of hell, I imagine. My requirements for a trip of that distance are probably going to involve a little more relaxation than the SDCC can provide.

To be honest I have neglected many conventions that I spent a good chunk of time 1998-2002 going to. But you only get so much vacation time every year, you only have so much disposable income to spend on travel, and if it's a choice between visiting San Francisco or a hotel ballroom, Vancouver or a convention center, or let's say, Tokyo versus a hotel ballroom, well, the convention is going to lose every time.

In keeping with my crazy new schedule (that this is the last week of) the update for Zero Fighter was a day late. On the other hand there is a whole whack of new inserted Element Of Surprise pages up that Shain did to flesh out her continuity. Found Sound will be up later today and Stupid Comics will be tomorrow and there will probably be one more Zero Fighter and then we're on vacation, and regularly scheduled updates will be happening sometime in August.
