Let Me Look At Cake Like It's Evil
Hi everyone! Thanks for the Halloween ideas! It's my favorite month of the year, and I'm working on some new Halloween ideas for the blog. I finally finished How To Own and Operate A Haunted House just in time for the season. Wanted to give a shout-out to the end of the Cathy comic strip. I always liked this one, an early portrayal of a single girl wrestling with mother issues, swimsuits, and donuts. Some columnists have suggested it has lost its relevance in the age of Sex and the City, third wave feminism (or is it the fourth -- Girls Gone Wild has set us back a bit, I'm thinking), and the supposed end of workplace discrimination, but I never felt that way. It strikes me as innocent, but true in fundamental ways, the hallmark of any good comic strip, an art form that requires a dedication to production (every single day) and is undervalued.
See you later with more posts about the news (Eddie Long, gay bullying on the docket) and some Halloween ideas that may not be Martha Stewart approved, but I think you guys will like them. Happy Monday!
