That's why I really didn't expect him to pass on just yet, even though I knew he was in ill health from the various on-line reports. I figured he still had a lot of people to yell at and badger and heckle. I liked him even though he was a pain sometimes, sometimes you caught him having a good time jerking you around. He was cantankerous and I think after a while everyone knew it so he had to ramp it up to play the part. Then again, maybe he was just cantankerous. I'll miss getting heckled by the man this year. R.I.P, Mr Schwartz . May you be in a far, far better parallel universe than this one.
I was gonna work until later this morning, but this actually bummed me out a bit and I'm already tired after starting work sometime around 8 this morning. I'm not getting things done quickly and I've blown the upcoming deadline yet again, I'm pretty depressed today and the medication isn't helping. I pencilled the hell out of the strip to try to do my best, but my inks aren't up to it and I'm making mistakes and nervously attacking the pages, it's all going to shit and I have to clean it up best as I can as quickly as I can. I'm not going to be posting for a few days, at least that's the plan, I really have to put every possible minute into finishing this. So, later, skaters. Have a good however many days I'm away. Hopefully I'll have better news when I type at you again.
