Shock News of the morning is that Nelson has been nominated for an Eisner. Under "best anthology", in case you can't spot us. Yes, I know LOTS of people have been nominated. I don't care. Eisner!
My digital camera's screen has started doing the b&w wibbly wobbly thing, like it's about to start showing me pictures from beyond the grave, so I have regretfully bought another cheapish compact camera with skills beyond its size to replace it. It occurs to me that I've been walking around with a compact camera in my pocket since I was about 10 -- a 110 I got by collecting coupons off the back of a cereal packet -- [quite a few] years of snapping. I'll be sad to wave off the old camera as it's the one bought for me by all of my lovely friends after I was mugged, not to mention the co-author of Miss World Queen but with a little careful coddling and retirement from my pocket, I should be able to bring it out for special occasions for a few years yet.
In other news, Peonies. Good idea, or bad idea?
