Somalia's President Resigns! →
I thought the breaking news would be in discovering Somalia even had a President.
Where My Bag and I are Separated
I can’t sleep, so I’m blogging. This was how nice it looked when I arrived: When I came home, I flew through Las Vegas on the same day that Las Vegas got a surprise snowstorm and all flights in or out got shut down. You remember the beginning of the story, with Jason Bateman and all that. Yes. I arrived in the Vegas airport at 8am expecting a flight out at 9am which quickly...
So this is Christmas
From this: To this: Thank God it’s Christmas.
Have I mentioned I haven't slept?
I’m about 98% sure that the dude who was sitting across from me in the airport and then in front of me on the place was Jason Bateman, the straight man of the Bluff family on Arrested Development. I never heard him speak, aside from two tremendously overblown yawns, and that would have given me my 2%. How do I know it was him?

From our own separate sides
I had a brief stopover in Las Vegas on my way back to LA. On my first flight, there was a woman sitting near me who looked entirely too much like Laura Roslyn. On my second flight, a guy looked a little bit like Colonel Tigh. What the hell is going on? There was a moment when I looked out the window and another jet was going the other way and couldn’t have been more than a few thousand...
How to build from the bottom up
Flying back to LA today so posts should resume as scheduled. I have some things I want to remember to mention, including: The placement of comics in bookstores. Projects I’m looking to finish. TV shows that do or do not suck. My economic stimulus package. The transition between home and LA, or There and Back Again, A Hobbit’s Tale
