Found out today the boiler at the office is in the process of being fixed and that's why the heat's been turned off at night over the last few weeks and not for financial savings as originally thought. I should have asked sooner and saved myself some grumpiness. The landlord is looking for a good space heater we could use.

I am not a fan of the cold.

Yesterday Vic and I went to Richmond to get the car serviced and during the several hours we had to wait we decided to see a movie. Unfortunately it was Dan in Real Life, the most contrived piece of shit story I've seen in years. Wow, I mean- what the hell, man? Avoid unless you need to see a prime example of everything wrong with the studio system right now.

On Wednesday we all went to UBC at a the crazy early hour of 7:30am to attend Vicky's commencement ceremony. My sister is now officially a BFA with a double major in English and Studio Arts.

I'm so crazy proud of her.

5 pages out today. 19 more to go.

Found this great quote over on the Bendis Board:

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." --- H.L. Mencken, 1920

It's really not helping that the office owners have decided to turn off the heat at night to save money.

Drawing at home today to avoid numb fingers.

5 pages nearly done.

Raining like crazy over the last couple of days and it looks like it'll continue through the weekend. Combined with Daylight Savings and it's a very dark, grumpy week.

We've been watching the Twin Peaks collection on DVD. Fantastic and still bloody scary nearly 20 years later. Will Coop ever escape the Black Lodge?

Pub Quiz was a lot of fun. We were going to show up as Animal Farm but the shop only had enough cat masks. And hence our team:
The Pussy Whips!

I was in a steam punk mood so my outfit (complete with bowler hat) ended up looking like those LOLkitteh cartoons set in the 20s. Diana brought her dog Pender along, and we learned walking a dog down the street dressed as a cat is pretty damn hilarious.

There were many cool costumes but my favourite was Shaun Stewart's Robert GHOOOULet

Sharp and timely is our Shaun.

At the end of the night the Pussy Whips took first place! Woo!

Afterwards Ian and I stopped by the office to grab pages and take care of e-mails before heading home where I hunkered down in the armchair to finish this week's batch. Kenneth Brannagh's Hamlet was on cable and that helped get in the right head space for drawing (the scene with Hamlet addressing Yorick's skull actually made me a bit weepy). I should pick that up on DVD sometime, if only to see it again in widescreen.

Forcing myself not to put on Dial M for Murder playing right now on AMC. Hitchcock is amazing but that bloody channel butchers films without remorse! "TV for Film People" my ass!
