weekly strip as displacement activity

This week's strip, despite having nothing to do with it, was mostly scripted last year at Ladyfest Dublin (and inspired by conversations with amphoteric and her friends), but I didn't have the punchline. A few weeks later, the punchline turned up during a routine appraisal, but by then it was too close to christmas for publishing such a wishlisty strip. New year, no danger, time to get it done. Cue another fight with the antique nibs damiancugley got me for christmas. I fear the ink may be thickening, too ... and before the pot is half done! curses! The stupidly over-detailed colouring (really, at that size, you are *not* going to see what's on my t-shirt) took me ... a while. Mostly because I had some other strips I really should be doing. Managed to put that off, though. I am rubbish. Really...

My head got cold and I bought a hat today.

a hat too farI'm not at all certain it's a good hat, but it seems very cleanskies, so I thought I'd post it here. I also accidentally went into the Next sale shop, and found a coat that nearly matched; damiancugley said I looked like a stoker on an airship or a paddle steamer, but I thought I looked more like a member of a surreal service industry. I also thought £29.99 was far too expensive for a coat with no obvious merit. Spoiled by charity shops, clearly.

I don't know, do you think it's too much?

Later that day: Special offerings of pizza were included for foreign 'spirits'.

Coats need to be loved as they're dreadfully insecure garments underneath their touch exterior. If you don't love it, you probably won't wear it, and 30 quid would be a waste.
However, if its warm, and you're cold and in need of a coat, 30 quid is cheap for a utilitarian coatbeast.

it wasn't warm
... at least, it wasn't warm compared to the green leathers I was already wearing.
