The orginal idea was that there wouldn't be anything in the strip that wasn't a toy in my room, but I rather blew that on the aforementioned moths (based on the pink floppy beanie moth, which I've stroked in shops but never bought) and I unfortunately don't own a roller-skating gin-serving lizard-man either. Damn it. However, this does feature [Panel 1] Halloween danglers Mr Satan and Baron Samedi, with old friend rag-doll Lucy [panel 4] my translucent plastic dinosaur CD holders and the plastic scorpion I couldn't find anywhere last night [panel 6] Tiny the Brontosaurus, the redder one of my two two-headed monsters and my fab confetti gun and of course [panels 7-9] Beautiful Suzy the mannequin.
The irony of it is that I wrote this strip on a day I did go to work, even though I felt like shit. I'm still trying to work through the migraines (with the help of medication) rather than around them, and so I went to the whole-day meeting on Monday. Which was fun.
I guess it's true that we write about what we don't do.
