It occurred to me a couple of weeks ago that while I have always tried to take the comic just as seriously as I have any “real” job, one thing that real jobs have that this one doesn’t is built in vacation time. I’ve missed days due to illness or injury, but I was busy being miserable. I haven’t had any real downtime away from the comic in… 5 years?
So I’ve decided to take myself a real, honest vacation. I will continue to post little things every (week) day, videos, observations, questions I have, sketches, what have you, and I’d hope that you guys’ll continue show up and let your voices be heard in the interim. The comic will resume on Monday, January 3rd, 2011. I’ll keep a countdown as we go. (Viewership always drops like a stone during the holidays anyway, so this seemed like a perfect opportunity.)
I know some folks first reaction is to freak out and worry that I’ll never get back to it, but I promise that isn’t going to happen. Finishing this up is very important to me, and the only person that could keep me from doing it… Lena… is incredibly supportive and helpful, and knows how much it means to me. So no worries there.
Enjoy yourselves, have a happy whatever you celebrate, and don’t be a stranger!
