I successfully hobbled myself today. As I was walking into the garage to
dump some laundry, I stepped onto a pair of sneakers lurking under a
solitary step. I twisted my foot. I then fell into a heap on the cold,
concrete floor. That was when the smarting and the coarse language
began. After much cursing, I gave my tootsie a rub and I shambered off
At work, my foot throbbed and
ached. I started to walk around like a nursing home resident, shuffling
with minor lurches and gritted teeth. After about four hours, I went
home to recuperate and, yes, I feel like a total wiener.
As I write this, the foot is
feeling better and I don't think I sprained it or anything. There is no
swelling and there is no bruising to be seen, but I still feel like a

There's a disturbing trend occurring at Touchy Feely Fotos: All the
cool people are quitting! Theresa "The Sweetheart of the Drag
Strip" Keihn left the building for the last time this past
Wednesday. Besides being an artisan and a top-notch craftswoman, Theresa
has been a good friend and I'm going to miss working with her. Touchy
Fotos is not going to be the same without her and that is a loss for
Theresa is moving on to the land
of blue vests and I wish her only the best! Good luck, Theresa, and
beware of black teeth!

Here's something to nibble on...
Gimme some Oreo cookies!
Gimme an Eskimo Pie!
Gimme some satisfaction
In a handy, snack size!
'Cause I'm tired of these onions
And I'm getting rid of these lima beans!
Don't care too much for wheatgrass
And one more grapefruit
Will make me scream!
So I'm giving up the battle!
I'm surrendering to the fight!
I'm retreating from the healthy
And rescuing my appetite!

Break out the party hats 'cause my little comic strip is celebrating its
second birthday on the web! Yes, two years ago, Those Funky Idiots took
the big plunge into cyberspace! In honor of this event, I have decided
to shake up the status quo a bit. To make the strip more unique and
daring in today's marketplace, I have played around with its concept and
have turned the Idiots into mermaids! Actually, Amanda has become a
mermaid and all the male characters have become mermen (Except for
Oscar, of course. He's simply a fish)! I think by doing this I'm opening
up a whole new world to explore and swim in! I think the possibilities
for these fishy Idiots are endless and I'm really excited to dive in! So
I hope everyone will enjoy the new and improved Those Funky Idiots
and any feedback (positive
or negative) will be appreciated!
Our Tim as Sven
Belated birthday wishes to our
very own Tim Richardson! Tim turned another year older yesterday and I
hope he had a great day!
Our favorite yields and gains
manager (I've asked around and nobody seems to know what that means) has
shut down nine machines so far in his promising, new career. In honor of
this achievement, I have penned the following poem...
Eric has shut down nine
and everybody I know thinks that's keen!
Of course, he'll never be featured on a cover of a magazine,
But we'll always hold him in high esteem!

Happy Birthday, Keke!

Nothing much to report. The last few days are notable for being less
than notable. Work on my first minicomic continues to go at a good pace
and I'm drawing practically everyday which is bueno. Other than that,
the status quo is living up to its name.
It took me a few weeks, but I
finally remembered that March is a special month for the Idiots. Eight
years ago this month, Those Funky Idiots made its debut on
Muncie's public access! The show premiered with the episode entitled,
"Sacks, Golf, and Videotape". So happy anniversary to us!
Elsewhere in the world, the war
with Iraq sadly continues.
