My first day in my new office was spent tidying it up. It’s a good little space in what used to be referred to as “the sewing room” or “the guest room.” I’ve got a north-east window level with the lawn (I’m half-way underground), and lots of space compared to my office at Novell.
And there’s a drawing board in it.
I went out to lunch with Richard Bliss, and we talked about all kinds of stuff. There was some Novell gossip (we’re both former Novell employees, and Richard is the VP of marketing for one of Novell’s most successful partners, GWAVA), some discussion of cartooning, but mostly just a good time between a couple of old friends.
Richard brought me a video montage of photos he has of me at various Novell events, and at Comic-Con 2003. It was really, REALLY neat, and it nicely illustrated my transition from a product manager to a cartoonist.
I did some scripting first thing in the morning. Schlocktoberfest is going to be dark, like I’ve said before. I just hope nobody thinks it’s dark because I left my day-job. I’ve been planning this story for YEARS now, and it’s just COINCIDENCE that it airs the month after I leave my 11-year career in I.T.
And now, my son wants me to play a game with him.

Years, huh? Can’t wait to see this.
Congrats on your transition – good luck!
Grats and good luck!
And enjoy playing with your son. Of all the distractions of working at home that one is by far the most insidious. But it must be, at least on occasion. ::grins::
A game? Which game? Star Munchkin? 😉
Actually, yes. We played Star Munchkin. He beat me, but it was a close thing. If he hadn’t successfully rolled his escape from The Cheese of Evil, I’m SURE I would have beaten him on my very next turn.
Ahh, the Cheese of Evil. So you have The Clown Wars mixed in, of course. I always enjoy mixing Star Munchkin with Munchkin Fu. Speaking of, I think I’ve heard rumours that there’s a Munchkin Fu expansion in the works…
What other games do you play?
What games do I play?
What games do I play? Mostly I DON’T. We’ll see how that changes over the next few weeks. 🙂
Re: What games do I play?
We still have “Give me the Brain” and “Save Doctor Lucky” which we bought years ago and have never yet played.
Re: What games do I play?
You should get Lord of the Fries and Deadwood Studios (as well as the various thematic expansions for that one. It is cowboy movies. The expansions are musicals, space opera, monster flicks, and kung foo movies. Lord of the Fries is probably more fun for the kids though, and now avaliable on good cardstock in color.)
Cheese of Evil… priceless 🙂
Game time is always good!
