December 2005


 I made it safely home from New York. It's nice to be back. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa (though I've never met anyone that actually celebrates Kwanzaa- if any of you do please drop me a line and tell me what you do for this holiday).

BTW, for the first time ever I actually chuckled at "Cathy." Friday's cartoon about using old gift bags and wrapping paper hit close to home (yes, my family does this despite our financial ability to just go out and buy new bags/paper) and for once I was able to relate to the strip: (EDIT: I can't get my links to work for some reason, so for now just copy and paste into your browser.)



My presence here will be scarce in the next week or so because my first semester at grad school is drawing to a close and I need to work on my final papers. (But don't worry- as always, the comic will be up daily)

That said, I just wanted to share with you today's Felt Up, which I found particularly funny because I personally can relate to it. Talk to my parents or any of my current and former roommates- they'll tell you how much I love to abuse that snooze button.




Lots of exciting news.

First of all, it's a new month, so please remember to vote for CLV daily on Top Webcomics List and to visit my ucomics site. Your support at both places will help me out a lot.

Also, last night was my first snow here in New York and ever. I have seen snow on the ground before when my family and I took trips to the mountains, but I've never seen snow fall from the sky before. It was really pretty. I stayed up really late trying to catch the flakes falling from the sky. This morning there was an inch of snow on the ground- it looked really gorgeous on my terrace b/c it was a completely pristine flat blanket of white.

Then my roommates and I ruined it by making miniature snowmen.

I look pretty surprised in this picture- that's b/c I was. B/c I was TOUCHING SNOW!

That and it was pretty cold outside.
