detail: late last nightLate last night, while inking this week's strip, I sent an email through to UK women's comics guru Carol Bennet (at behest of crazycrone) with a couple of email addresses of people she might want to contact (there's some sort of big women's comics beano in London in february next year -- like the Fanny gatherings she used to put on) and she wrote back, "pleased to hear you are still fighting the good fight".

Trouble is, I'm not altogether convinced that I am. Still, never mind, eh? At least I have a flat-packed IKEA tallboy waiting for me at home.

Pff, look at my little face there. I've just seen the snow, but it's three-four-five something in the morning. Why can't nice things happen when you've got the energy to appreciate them?

This weeks strip
Have you been borrowing my life perchance? The fact that I never have any time amidst all the endless lists of "things that must be done," aggravates me on a daily, (nay, an hourly) basis.

I'm starting to feel it might be a life-stages thing
You know: At first the grub,
Squirming fitfully through no-sugar rusks and c-beebies;
Then the underage smoker, sulking and stropping
Behind the eternal bike-shed, sneaking and creeping
Out the teachers at school. Then the goth,
Sighing, black-clad, full of strange poems
And gloomy contemplations. Then the temp,
Full of strange obsessions, suited like a politician,
Jealous of mug, slack and lax at work,
Seeking the permanent positition
Even in local goverment. And then the mortgagee,
In hangdog face with endlesses stresses lin'd,
With tired eyes and never-ending to-do list,
Full of great ideas and fantastic plans;
That never come to fruit. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and bitter ...

Re: life-stages
apart from not having been an underage smoker (I was teacher's pet instead) this fits very well...

I never got the life stages, read...

In hangdog face with endlesses stresses lin'd,
With tired eyes and never-ending to-do list,
Full of great ideas and fantastic plans;


From age 15 onwards, unrelenting.
