There are few things I love more than getting mail.

10 Nov

This weekend I got a mix cd from this kid I’ve been chatting with on OKCupid (hey, pen pals come from all over), and another letter from A. Sparkles, greatest pen pal ever, who has just returned from the epic beet harvest in the frozen steppes of North Dakota. Right now I’m working on sending out more issues of Sassyfrass #4, trying to work a little on my thesis, and do the massive pile of dishes in my kitchen. I also have some design work due tomorrow, so probably no new comic today. Soon, soon.
