Egg Nog

Since they're seasonal favorites, I thought I'd link you to some of my favorite Sheldon toons on Egg Nog ("Humanity's Nastiest Drink, Since 1645"). Open 'em up in browser tabs, and enjoy!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

U.S. Shipping 'n Stuff

Thursday, December 13, 2007 - 04:02 PM

1.) Just a heads up for U.S. gift-givers: Last call for Christmas purchases in the Sheldon Store is Dec. 17th, for those using Priority Mail shipping and not paying by e-check. There are always a few people (myself included!) that realize on the 23rd that they forgot to get a gift for Uncle Jim, so I try to give one last holler.

2.) Satisfaction guaranteed: It's worth reminding folks that if your order arrives and there is anything out of place, drop me a line and we'll fix it for you. Lots of times, it's because the mailman crammed a 14" package into a 4" mailslot. That's not your fault! And we'll happily send you another one on us — or whatever it takes to get it right. We're cool like that!

3.) For those that tried to get a "Lizard" Artist's Edition today but missed it, my genuine apologies. Those final ten went in just a few minutes. (And if your heart was set on an Artist's Edition, there are 19 left of "Pure Ducky Goodness" in the store.)

4.) And just a reminder for the gift-givers: Every Original Art purchase between now and Christmas comes with a free Sheldon book of your choosing! Just e-mail me after you've ordered, telling me which book you'd like! And it's Swooshy McGee, in the mail to your door.

"Swooshy McGee?"

"Get it at the gettin' store..."

Thursday, December 13, 2007 - 03:29 PM

My dear, much-loved, highly intelligent brother-in-law John hails from Georgia, and one of my favorite Georgia-isms that he (rarely) uses is "I got this at the gettin' store" or "You can get one of those at the gettin' place." It's such a great phrase, and it always makes me laugh. I love it. So I had to work it in to today's strip.

And, just to balance out the perception that I'm picking on Georgia unfairly, let me point you to three Sheldon strips that help show what a patently ridiculous place California is:




I actually think Georgia would be a great place to live for a while. My wife and I have a short list of 4-5 cities we'd like to live in before we die, and Savannah's one of 'em. It has gorgeous, gorgeous architecture, a hip art scene...and I'd love nothing better than to teach sequential art (comics) at Savannah College of Art and Design's excellent program. Georgia: It's the new hotness.
