It's My Berfday!

Monday, January 14, 2008 - 06:29 PM

Hey! I completely forgot to mention, what with being under the weather, that it is (was) my b-day! Woo-hoo!

My biggest birthday gift continues to be living this dream of cartooning full-time. You wouldn't believe what a gift that is. And *you* make it possible, with your kind support. Anytime you come out to say "hi" at a convention, or pick up something cool at the store, or even drop me a kind note... that kind of support means the world to me.

If you want to do something nice for a cartoonist on his b-day, how about this: Take 30 seconds and e-mail five people in your life to suggest they try "Sheldon." It's the nicest possible thing you could do for this lil' toonist. (To make it easy, here's a basic e-mail you can modify and send. Just click here.)

Or, you may even want to try a cool feature on the site: Sending a strip to a friend! Here's how: Navigate to your favorite Sheldon strip in the archives), then fill in their e-mail in the little grey box (under the right-hand-side of the strip). It'll let you include a personalized note, too, telling them to give "Sheldon" a try.

Thanks, ahead of time, to everyone who tells a friend! It's the best gift I could possible receive!

Really? Honest to God?

I've had a number of English readers e-mail me today to tell me they've never heard the song mentioned in today's strip. And I am flabbergasted. Really?? The electric slide never made it to England? Really??

What a blessed land is this England! What a hallowed land of milk and honey, never to have been scourged by the electric slide!

I'm packing my bags and movin' back to London! It's a done deal!
