My Shit Jobs: An Artist's Curse

What have I been up to lately, you ask?  Well a number of things, none of which are all too exciting, none of which pay overly well, and none of which are furthering my career except to remind me to focus on what I really want to do lest I end up like this for life.  This is the promotions gig I've been doing a lot lately. 

I'm not really as downtrodden or angry as I may make this sound.  Just while I'm actually AT these jobs.   Uhhhhhhg.

Don't Play With Your Food: Act It Out

Someone asked me what I had for dinner last night.  Naturally I acted it out for them, charades-style. 

They were delicious, by the way.

HELP! I Need Somebody: A Hard Day's Night

It's day 34 of unemployment, and I have confirmed that this is THE WORST!  However, I have really improved my interior design and home reno skills....watching a lot of HGTV.  Wondering about the future led me to this reflection on my working life to date.  Ohhhh momma, what a ride.

Musings of a Mad Man: Boyfriend Joke

I was sitting in bed writing possible funny ideas, and I asked Boyfriend to give me some funny ideas since he IS my muse.  He responded with this:

And then he just walked away.  And thus, a cartoon idea was conceived in our very bedroom.  Sheesh.

Boyfriends: If Muscles Were Underwire

I live with a man now -- my boyfriend!  And during the five months when we were not living in the same city, it occurred to me that a good boyfriend is like a real good bra in many ways, for example: 

Perhaps it is worth noting that I was wearing a piece of shit bra and having a bad day when I thought of this idea.  Boyfriend fixed one of those. : )

Optirex: Helping You Buy Glasses Since --- Rrrrrrrooar!!

This cartoon is dedicated to my friend Joel.  As we were walking around Cambie and 7th before Christmas, we passed a factory optical called Optirex.  I had to do a double-take of the sign, and it DID say what I thought it said. So we just had to joke about how a T-Rex, or Optirex, must live in there, and what kind of dino this thing would be.  Who calls an optical "Optirex" and DOESN'T have this thought come to their head!? OPTIREX!!!!!

Losing the Love Handles: A Post-Christmas Miracle

Another Christmas, another few pounds.  But SO WORTH IT!  My Christmas was wonderful.  How was yours?  Oh, that's nice.  I spent about 12 days straight spending time with my family, friends, manfriend, indulging in the Four Food Groups of Christmas, and somehow I seem to have acquired a few L-Bs.  Weird.  Now it's time to resolve and resize! 

Time to buckle down so I can buckle UP.  My belt, that is. Good luck with your resolutions.  My real resolution is to read more books this year.  HAPPY NEW YEAR!
