I was swinging by a local convenience store today, one I normally do not frequent when I overheard one side to a brilliant conversation. – I’ll set the stage for you.
MORNING. INT. CIRCLE K –
Handsome and talented man (Ryan) enters store and proceeds the fountain drink section. The clerk is behind the counter, on her cell phone and ringing up customers.
So what did the doctor get for you?
Shit, fuck that shit. You gotta put some crème on that shit and just lay in bed wit’ yo’ legs spread and air that shit out.
Naw, bitch, lissen to me, I had that shit once, it was all white and sticky down there and shit, you gotta just lay there, put the crème’ down there and stay there and let it work, that shit will work better than any shit that doctor says.

Last night I came about as close as I ever do to a nervous breakdown. I’m stressing over my Villains deadline. Whether Hurricane Kids will or will not get picked up, the kids are always demanding and loud, they can be very loud, our puppy is sick and lethargic and shitting everywhere so I may need to drop some money to take her to the vet today, and my Coyotes are on a 4-game losing streak. I composed myself, re-evaluated my situation and came to a simple solution; I need 2 things to make my life run smoothly. A maid for the house so I always have clean underwear, and an 11x17” printer so I can blueline print my thumbnails and cut valuable time off of penciling a page. Ideally I would get an 11x17 scanner too, but the printer is a must. There are some affordable ones on eBay, and even though I sell dozens of cars a month on eBay to other buyers, I’m personally scared to death of spending $130 on it. But I need to do that I think, for my sanity and the flow of my house to return to normal.
We did finally take the kids to a movie, I don’t think they have been to one since
Finally, go check out GROUNDED from Image Comics, it’s a great mini-series that I have fully enjoyed and I have a pin-up in issue #4 as well.
- All I want for Christmas is a healthy puppy and a creative boost to increase my workload.

Current mood: gassy
It's no secret that I am getting old. We all are (unless you are young), but here I am turning 30 in a few weeks and I feel it. I don't dread it and whine like a little bitch about it, it's a fact I have accepted, but it still stings. I have a house, a job, 3 kids and a wife, but none of it is easy and I'm not nearly as comfortable as I thought I would be at this age. I don't need a lot of money, and I know I already make more than some my age, but I would like to be to the point where I don't have to worry about paying the mortgage every month. I told the wife the other day that we should sell our house, take our 100K in equity (roughly) we have and move to Europe. If I knew I could find work there I would probably do it in a heartbeat. Fuck this dustbowl of dirt and greed and violence I live in now. Maybe I'll just buy a place in Oregon somewhere. Hopefully someplace that has a high speed connection...........
On a completely different tone, I was shooting pics of a car today for my annoying side job when I see a guy roll up in his black PT Cruiser, it has a big-ass Church sticker on the back promoting his personal choice of house of worship, and a license plate holder that said, "World's Greatest Husband and Father". Then the guy gets out and his neck is covered in hickeys. Now my thoughts on the matter are, no wife who puts that license plate holder on that car, gives her man a huge, fucking purple hickey. So he's probably cheating on her, going against one of the commandments that he's obviously sworn to uphold. Maybe he just uses the Church sticker to pick up girls. But what do I know, except that I would kill my wife before I let her defile my 87' Acura Integra with the previously mentioned license plate holder.

On the family front everything is still cooking along. J got a job so she can high-tail it to Europe next year for a cousin's wedding, so I'm spending much more time alone with the boys at night now so I'm trying to get back into the groove on that. The older 3 just finished soccer and I coached Aiden's 5-6 year old team to a stellar 6-2 record including 4 straight shutouts. (But we don't keep score, yeah right.) Ash is finally getting to the age where him being small is sticking out like a sore thumb and he had a hard time competing with the older kids in his 7-9 age group. But his gymnastics is still going strong (he has a six-pack and can do hand stand push-ups). The baby would make me a fucking millionaire if I just sent off some photos to a talent agency (as would the other 2), so I have no idea why I'm not pimping the kids out for my own gain. The Texas comic convention went great as we met some swell fellas and had a blast. I'm looking forward to the next convention that's not San Diego Comic-Con.
We also got a dog.

as you can see Aiden is in his usual cheerful mood.
