May 3rd is the 123rd day of the year, and there are only 242 calendar days left in the year. That's 242 action-packed, anything-could-happen, amazing days of your life until January 1st of the next decade, 2010. Is that too much statistics?
On with the show!

Thanks to Kate Beaton I found myself reading about Florence Nightengale and the unsung heroine Mary Seacole. I'm very excited about ordering Kate Beaton's first book. Yay for comics about history. I've also been in contact with the amiable and talented CarolB who has put together a May blessing for all aspiring artists. Thanks Carol.
I haven't had any time to worry about the H1N1, and to be honest I'd rather keep that can of worms shut. Why not just be of healthy mind and body? Get some sunlight, eat right, sleep right, get a little exercise everyday, and keep your body, your house, and your stuff clean. Speaking of clean, I've got some laundry to do, so no time to dilly-dally.
But wait. Speaking of clean I've also got to clean out some of my taboo's, some of my uncategorized bookmarks, and folders with zany random pictures. Oh yeah, that's where SAN comes in!
I don't know if there's anybody who hasn't heard me blabbing about stumbleupon yet. There is definitely a down side to it.
But then there's also the good. Connecting with other bloggers via stumble-through-blogs, finding new sites (or web comics) based on comics (i mean sites) you've rated or stumbled on, effortless link sharing to emails or social sites, or even just archiving links of stuff you like. I haven't been initiated into reddit or digg so stumbleupon is my main source of social bookmarking.

I know what you're thinking. The most handsome devil in a diaper. Thanks, I'll take it.
Here's the famous El Cortez building in downtown San Diego; its an unfinished collage of several pictures I took last July. It brings to mind 2 wishes for this year. Wish #1: That I finish cleaning up the collage in it's giant 4,000 x 2000 pixel dimensions and Wish #2: That I make it back out to Comic-Con this year and/or enjoy the seaside, breezy schmoozing that comes along with it.

Drawger is awesome. So's Musicovery. I sometimes get my anime news from Anime Pulse. And I listen to KPFA and WORT, especially on weekends. Lost at E Minor and Fecal Face will blow your mind.
Wowzers I'm packin' it in tight today!! Speakin' of packin' it in . . .
Enjoy your Sunday. Enjoy your Sunday Afternoon, and your Sunday Afternoon Noodle.
