Slowly entering the 20th century…

…I’m not quite ready for the 21st century just yet.

We still just use our phone as a —you know— a phone.

The only internet access we have is a Rogers ‘Rocket Stick’ (if you use more than 12 gig a month, the costs ‘rocket’ and they ‘stick’ you with the bill).

So no YouTube or Netflix, we don’t have cable or satellite.

Our primary source of heat is still the wood stove and we still live out in the country where we regularly have power outages and frequently have no running water…

…but…

…I have a new Wacom Cintiq 13HD drawing tablet:

I had decided —for reasons too numerous and boring to go into here— that I would colour the ‘Absent Cat’ pages on the computer and that things would go much faster if I used the right equipment.

So far, so good, I think.

Wizard World Nashville appearance cancelled.

I’ve been booked for this show for over a year.

We’ve been contacting them about our travel arrangements for weeks.

Yesterday, a week before the show, someone calls to let us know that due to ‘budget cuts’ my appearance at the Nashville show has been cancelled.

My apologies to anyone who was planning on seeing me at the show… see you at Dragon Con Atlanta next year?
