Just in case anybody is arbitrarily counting time in solar revolutions with zero based on today — Happy New Year.
…and so did I. Happy (belated) birthday Adam: http://adammurphy.com/2011/11/cute/
Small Print: this story is based on “The Wild Bride” which we went to see performed by Knee High at the Oxford Playhouse on Saturday night.
A poor farmer traded with the devil — a new suit of clothes in exchange for the contents of his apple tree. To his horror he discovered in the tree his beautiful but under-age daughter… which is when he called ‘You and Yours‘ for advice. We say, in contracts of this kind with diabolical forces there is no automatic 7 day cooling off period. So in future we recommend a more careful approach — remember the devil is in the details. Meanwhile Sue has been studying High Street Banking interest rates… Sue?
my first ever guest comic appeared today on the extremely excellent Edmund Finney’s Quest drawn by Dan Long. Find it here: http://eqcomics.com/2011/02/06/runner-up-andrew-kay-of-invisibules/
I wonder that if you really believe in Hallowe’en, and if you happen not to be dead (or undead) yet, then “happy” isn’t really the appropriate adjective for this evening’s unnatural occurrences. More likely “scared witless”. So, if you are planning to celebrate around about now: Happy Hallowe’en, Samuin, Calan Gaeaf, or whatever else you may choose not to believe in at this time of year.
PS I notice frequent comment contributor mpj has been getting into the Hallowe’en spirit, with this cheerful and irony-free sign in front of a graveyard.
I’ve noticed a number of online comics recently which have very Invisibule-like strips. Perhaps they’ve been there all the time, and I’ve only just noticed?
Please add any more you find in the comments section!
Of course, it stands to reason that you should read all of these comics as well as Invisibules…
