It's only polite, 1 of 5

Although my real life has been abhorrent the last few weeks, my online life has more than made up for it. So I’ve been thinking that a small show of thanks is in order for the people who have made it possible for me to keep my sanity. Therefore, I'm going to run a small series of blog posts, hoping they won't take too much time.

So first on the list (which has no particular order) is The Gennies!

Of course there’s more than four,
but I never would’ve finished the drawing
if I had tried to fit them all!

I forgot about St. Patrick's Day

I have no excuse. I simply forgot to queue something for today. I know I'm only harming my own page-views, but still, I really am sorry.

Quote of the Day now powered by Tumblr

Image: Frank the mouse stops in mid-step and looks in dismay at his foot, which has gotten snagged on a large, shiny, lowercase 't'. Caption:
Yes, I shamelessly ripped off my own artwork. What of it?

You may remember that when I originally created my Twitter account, I also set up a “Quote of the Day” deal that automatically sent quotes I had hand-picked and collected. This was powered by CoTweet, which in the past I wholly and unreservedly recommended. If you’ve been watching my twitter account, you may notice that these quotes stopped on February 18

To keep it simple, CoTweet doesn’t exist anymore; ExactTarget Inc. discontinued it on February 15 of this year (they did finish sending the quotes I had scheduled – even those that were for after February 15 – that was nice of them) in favor of a paid alternative. I, of course, barely have money, so switching over was out of the question. I had to look for another, free alternative, which is where Tumblr comes in.
