A nickel and a wish

Spent almost all of the day at the printers - which wouldn't have been so bad, except that:

a) I went at 10 AM thinking that I only had to sign off on a proof that, in truth, wasn't ready until 2:30,
b) Since I'd planned to go to the gym directly from the printer, I showed up unshowered and in my gym clothes - and I of course did not get to the gym,
c) and guess what else I didn't get to? Turns out my first Physics lab was supposed to have been today (Tuesday, that is), so instead of embarking on my new learning venture, I sat on my ass waiting for the varnish drum to lose its red cast.

Anyhow, that was just(?) the lab, and the first class is tomorrow morning. In the meantime, for the rest of this evening, I'm finishing up a couple of smallish things for work - another dreaded radio spot! - so this Rambler will be brief. Hey, aren't they all?

Anyhow, I did finish a nice new Vomit Comic, which will likely be up Wednesday or Thursday, so I direct you over to Walrus Comix for pictures and words and words explaining the pictures. So, enjoy, and wish me class luck.

...i'm very confused.

Try some dimensional analysis. That seems to do the trick.

Dude--

ANY press check is gonna be rough. I flew out o WI for a press check only to lose a whole day to waiting around for something that had to go through several rouns of tweaks anyway.

Yes, I know from experience. But then a guy can dream...

I actually really like press checks. I like the production side of things. But the waiting around, yeah, it's quite enervating.
Even a free meal can't make up for all of that downtime!

Eh. I've been doing press-checks now for the better part of a decade, and the blush is off the rose, for me. I like the guys, I want to make sure the work is printed correctly, but I also don't want to show up at 10 o'clock if 2 o'clock is when the party is actually starting.
