I am so, so sorry about that pun in the last panel. Normally I loathe puns but I just couldn't resist that one.

Today was my birthday! Year 24 got off to a pretty rocky start, but a tasty dinner and some awesome presents from Heather made it better. Also some awesome people made me drawings! This one was sent in by Julie of Okay Pants, and this one was sent in my my good buddy James! Thanks guys!

One last thing before I go to the store to buy more anti-itch lotion for my poor allergic-reactioning ears: Get your hands on a copy of Your Voice Repeating by Namelessnumberheadman (yes that is their real name) as soon as humanly possible. This is SUCH a good record! Imagine if the Flaming Lips and the Microphones got together to do a record, and you have a pretty good idea of what it sounds like. Gorgeous experimental pop music (tracks 3 and 4 are particularly astounding), I have a feeling this one will place well in my top ten of 2004.

Anyway that's it for now. Thanks to everyone for their birthday wishes, enjoy the comic, and I will see you Monday.
