FILLER: Black Friday

Whoops! I’m behind again, thanks in part to trying to get everything ready for the holidays! Which reminds me, you know what’s coming up soon?

That’s right! The infamous start of the shopping season! To celebrate (no matter how hypocritically), everything in the Good Tickle Shoppe will be 20% off. The flowchart poster will be back in stock, along with a brand-new Shakespearean Insults t-shirt! Stay tuned for more details!

Unfortunately, I still have a lot of work to do on this front, so I am taking next week off from new comics. But fear not! A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be back before the month is out! Thanks for understanding.

FILLER WEEK(S): Snacks

Oh boy, you know I’m behind on everything when I fail to post filler content here. First, a comic, and then, the excuses.

Some people have muses. I have potato chips.

ANYWAYS! The reason for my recent delinquency? I’VE BEEN DOING THINGS! I had an absolutely marvelous time last week, giving a talk at Washington College and running a three-panel comics workshop with undergraduate students at Washington College, and then running the same workshop with graduate students in the Shakespeare & Performance program at Mary Baldwin University. Check me out, being all professional and authoritative and stuff:

(I would like to note that I had two separate red shirts. I didn’t wear the same stinky shirt for both events.)

Having got this extremely fulfilling work out of the way, I finally visited the American Shakespeare Center. The ASC is famous for its gorgeous recreation of the Blackfriars Theatre. Look. So pretty.

ASC very kindly provided me with tickets to all four shows in their current Summer/Fall season. I saw As You Like It, Restoration comedy The Man of Mode, a new adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, and Richard III. For the last production, I sat on one of those stools onstage, which was a terrifying but also exhilarating experience.

I had an absolutely wonderful time and am already planning a return trip in the hopefully not-too-distant future.

And that’s why I’m currently behind in absolutely everything. Now, if you’ll excuse me… I have some potato chips to eat.
