Year-End Reviews

Sunday, January 27, 2008 - 10:01 PM

Your sample year-end reviews at a corporation always fall along the lines of "Great job landing the Johnson account," "Increased after-tax earnings by 12%."

I'd love to see that Societe Generale end-of-year review: "Sorta maybe kinda lost 7 billion dollars. But is *totally* gonna make up for it next year. Totally promises to work weekends and stuff."

Sunday's Strip

Sunday, January 27, 2008 - 01:39 AM

I had a great night of gameplay tonight, trying out the German boardgame "Settlers of Catan" for the first time. Jorge, Amy, and Kazu took my wife and I through the gameplay, and it lasted long, long into the night. What a great game: I highly recommend it, and will be picking up my own copy, post haste.

The only reason I mention it is that Sunday's strip hadn't been put up on the server before venturing over to Jorge's house — whoops — so it's going live a little later than normal. My apologies for the late-night update. :)

Also, I have to give a doff of the cap for today's strip to my friend Joey Aucoin. The concept for today's strip is an ol' chestnut that I've laughed at for years with Joey. He's honed it into a much finer bit than I could ever express... but I wanted to draw it up for him as a late birthday gift.
