What The Hell Have You Done?
[Update: 08.18.2013] Hi, everyone, this is Mr. Average, here. I’m confined to wireless devices for the moment, which is not really the best or smartest way to make updates to my website, but I thought I would let you all know that my move is over, but it’s been the only thing I had time for besides work in the past seven days. I’m in my new Secure, Undisclosed Location, but everything I own is either dismantled or in boxes, so I’m not really set up to do anything. However, in one week’s time I’ll have my new fiber optic system in place, my studio will be online, and I’ll be back to updating the comic regularly, by the grace of God. Until then, I thank you all for your patience and continued support. This move came a bit suddenly for me, and having to turn it around from lease to move in one week was a huge deal. I’m glad it’s over, and I’m looking forward to normalizing my life again – and getting back to the comic.
Given the response I’ve had in the past about my use of non-English languages in 6-Commando, this is the translation of the dialogue on this page.
Panel 2: “You IDIOT! What the hell have you DONE?!”
Panel 3: “He… He SHOT me!”
And now on to the serious business – the business at hand, so to speak.
Well, it’s happened. I found another place to live, and I’ll be moving in the next two weeks. I feel a little upset about it all, frankly – I like where I am now, so it’s a little bittersweet. But in terms of my own situation, it just made good sense to make the move now and not later. I need some degree of stability and certainty to do my work properly, and the potential that I could be kicked out of my apartment, my landlord’s dithering about selling, not selling, and how and when, and what they wanted from me in all of it, and the fact that I’ve just found out that I’m going to be taking on a lot more responsibility at work this autumn, all combined to basically set me straight on things, so I just pulled the trigger, so to speak. I signed the lease on a new apartment this week, and the move will happen… well, as soon as I can get things arranged with the moving company. Then comes the cleaning out of my old apartment, the whole rigmarole associated with a change of address, resetting all the services… if you’ve ever moved in the United States, you know what a pain it can be; I’m sure it’s much the same in other countries as well.
But the new place has a lot of advantages over this one, and although dealing with the hassle of it all is going to consume most of my attention until everything is complete, it will be worthwhile in the end, I hope. So until then, if I can possibly maintain my schedule I will. If not, you’ll know I’m somewhere in transit, and will be trying to get back on schedule as soon as I can. I know I should have a “buffer” for things like this, but it’s just not the way things have shaken out this time, so I thank you all in advance for your patience as I get my life sorted in the next week or so.
Wish me luck, folks! I’ll report, God willing, from my new Secure, Undisclosed Location within the next two weeks. And who knows, maybe I’ll find time for another page as I go! Here’s hoping!
