( Art-ness! )
I had thought about one day drawing the entire applying-&-moving-to-Canada experience, but holding off on it for now. Just until it no longer feels too personal. Also, man, that would be quite a story to tell.

In case you missed it the first time: If you’ve enjoyed Cleolinda’s play-by-play of the Twilight series, you’ll love Lucy Knisley’s illustrated summary of the vortex that sucks your soul.
"No, they won't. Zombies never go near the ocean."
"Why is that?"
"Salt water. Too corrosive."
"But their flesh is falling off anyway."
"Zombies don't go near the ocean because they get in contact with salt water and just disintegrate."
"Ohhh, so *that's* why they're always in urban areas!"
"Yeah, you always find them in the middle of the country. . . ."
"Is that why there are never any zombies in Hawaii?"
"Ohmigawd, now I want to make a movie: 'Zombies in Hawaii'!"
"That would be so awesome!"
"We could launch a series! 'Zombies on Spring Break'!"
"'Zombies in Cancun'!"
"'Zombies Gone Wild'!"
Dude, seriously, for the last time, this is not where we break out copious amounts of slash. It is not that kind of story. Go find Sascha, she can lead you to water, where you’ll have plenty to drink. Some involving bandom, even.
My Flickr pro account is expiring and this makes me sad, because I really like having somewhere to share my pics. Even if they mainly feature birds, birds, and oh my more birds OHMIGAWD SO FLOOFY. But I do post an occasional decent photo and maybe even some with lovely lighting.
Anyway, I would reeeeeaaaaaally like to keep these photos (non-pro account means Flickr hides older pics from sight, which means even the TAI pics will be archived), but can't swing by the renewal just yet.
So here's the deal: if anyone would be so lovely and awesome as to give me the gift of Flickr, I would be more than happy to give you the gift of trade. You will get an original 9"x12" artwork by me of whatever you want. Or if you prefer other options like writing or art print or sworn vows to post a pic/sketch/drawing/story/porn every day, lemme know. Those work too.
Because I really like my pro account. Please?
(. . . And, yeah, okay, because I really love pics of my floofy birdies too.)
Edit: OHMIGAWD I LOVE YOU NELL NAME YOUR PRICE YOU ARE TOO COOL YAY. :D
- Garmisch-Partenkirchen (the whole reason we're going, basically)
- Frankfurt (since that's where we'll be flying in)
- Munich (as it's on the way to Garmisch-Partenkirchen)
We've had to take Florence off the list, so won't be going down to Italy after all. I'm contemplating Salzburg. Sascha's going to bombard me with other potential places soon, but I think we're mostly going to center around Germany and Austria.
Any suggestions on other places around there we should visit? Would love to hear some ideas!
(Also have to figure out who'll look after ze birdies while I'm gone. Very scary contemplation. :( )
C's going to lend me her copy after her hubby reads it with much disbelief. This is gonna be hilarious. Let the gigglefest ensue.
Y’ know, when I was drawing today’s update, I was flummoxed and had to double-check Marseilles’s words. Could it really only just have been “last night” when this whole affair — to tell the truth, when the very first page of Bitters Past — occurred?
Somebody correct me if my memory’s playing tricks. It boggles the mind.
. . . Man, I bet they’re looking forward to the weekend.
Of course, if it had, it would have a much more diverse viewership, I can guarantee you that much.
Then again, it’s kinda hard to picture an action-packed soap opera when it takes seventeen episodes just to get a character to finish crossing all the way to the other side of the room.
