aLp 341: Libraryin'


Hi! Here I am. As I said in my various blog updates, it's been a stupid-hectic time for me over the past month. Elaine left me alone with the kids for 10 days and went to Jordan. That's a country, FYI, and not another dude. Then I had to plan my folks' dual 70th birthday party, which was a bit stressful, but it did end up going great, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM AND DAD!! All along (and now still) I've been racing against a big deadline at work... so basically taking these past few weeks to focus on all that was definitely necessary. Thanks for your patience...

(In case you missed it, the morning this happened - Rocket Hits Resort on Border of Jordan and Israel - I got a text from Elaine's sister saying that everyone was fine over there, and so I didn't think twice about it. It was only when Elaine got home that she told me not only was she in Aqaba when it happened... she was at that particular "Resort". A cab driver out front was killed, but otherwise Elaine and her family were fine. It's probably a good thing she didn't tell me 'til she got home)

SO with this episode I thought I'd change things up a bit. I've actually been thinking about playing around with my layouts for a while, and I thought it'd be a good time to try it, coming out of my break. Hope you dig it. Looking at it now I see a lot that I shoulda/coulda done better, but I'll chalk it up to learning on the job; otherwise I kinda like it. Lemme know what you think!

You'll notice I also changed the font. I like it better. I didn't give much thought to the font I'd been using since I started aLp back in 2004, beyond, "it kinda looks like Berke Breathed's lettering in Bloom County". Rock solid reasoning aside, I think I finally realized it wasn't the easiest font in the world to read. Hope you like this change too.

Oh yeah and something else I wasn't exactly sure about was the punchline. Twat me on Twitter or Fan me on Facebook to see my alternate punchline for today's ep coming later today.

Last thing: I wanna give a holler to Scenes from a Multiverse, Jon Rosenberg's new daily sci-fi/geek/hilarious comic. Jon's a swell super guy and I'm loving SFAM so far. Check it out!
