Stunts and Tricks

I just got an email from Dj, which ended with, "Am I living next to an illegal brothel?"

Some days, I miss having a comic

I have, of late, been toying with the idea of doing something new on the blog for a while. I haven't yet come up with anything yet, so don't hold your breath, but there's an itch in the back of my head, and that's usually the first sign of my desire to do something. I think it might be motivated by the fact that it has been feeling a bit stale around here, and part of that, I think, is due to me just being busier than usual with the real world. The business of writing (which is, I assure you, not writing) has taken up more than I like, which is frustrating, but something that has to be dealt with. But it's gotten me thinking about doing something new, having a bit of fun, maybe upsetting a few people. I'm not quite sure yet, but I'm thinking--thinking--I might do another set of linked dialogue pieces, much like I did for the first ones, four years ago. That, incidentally, was a bit of a shock to discover: that four years have passed since I dragged Dj out into the streets dressed up like Jesus so he could pretend to steal a car.

Of course, the only camera I have nowadays is on my phone, and I haven't the money to buy a new one. Still, that's workable, and I would like to do something, even if I haven't figured out yet quite what I should do. Give me a bit, though, and my mind will click over.
