December 31, 2005
Well, I spent the last week of 2005 as a bitter, lazy bum. I did very little if anything and I feel a bit grouchy about it. Well, I feel a little grouchy about everything it seems. I think I'm frustrated because everything is at a standstill and nothing I do seems to move me forward. It doesn't help that I'm a lazy procrastinator who's afraid to take chances. I'm 36 years-old and I'm not where I want to be in life. I'm stuck and I don't know how to be unstuck. Man, I've had this particular albatross around my neck for years and I'm afraid it's going to remain there in the new year.

Despite that gloomy paragraph lingering above, I am grateful to have some good friends. The last two nights I have spent the evenings with some good and kind people and I had a great time each night. Thanks to the Reeses, the Kaehrs, the Coles, and Joe Skeen for the good company and for cheering up a bitter, fat cartoonist.

Merry Christmas to one and all!

I'm not done with my Christmas shopping so that means I have to brave the crowds tomorrow. I'm planning on going early, but planning and doing are two different things. I did pick some stuff up today so it wasn't a total shopping bust. No, the bust part comes into play when I receive my credit card bills. Santa, give me a million dollars please!

The cast of Eight
Besides prowling the aisles and nearly getting sideswiped by a SUV, I took in the final showing of Eight: The Reindeer Monologues and I really enjoyed it. It was kind of strange seeing it, knowing I was supposed to be in it once upon a time.  I regret I had to miss the opportunity to work with such a talented cast. Kudos to my friends, Jerry Cole, Judy Malone, and Joe Skeen, for turning in some great performances!

Giraffe Man
Well, I finally mailed off my Christmas comic to all my family and friends Tuesday morning. Hopefully, everyone will receive it before Christmas Eve. I think this year's holiday cheer turned out pretty well. It stars Giraffe Man, a superhero with a super long neck. He was created by my friend, John Oak Dalton, and I hope I did John's creation justice! 

The Rummage Sale Lady

This past Sunday one of the Funky Idiots graduated from Ball State University. The sweet and kind Audrea Quinton got herself a college degree and I couldn't be happier for her. Congratulations, Audrea!

In Eric Whetsel News...
The majority of Eric's fish died this past weekend. Eric is still mourning his loss, but vows to restock his aquarium one day soon!
