That’s a nasty word in Estonian.  I think you can figure it out – Finns may have a leg up, as I think it’s the same word in Finnish.  But I’d say something like that in this situation, too.

So here we are again.  For some reason I feel really lousy this week.  Just unaccountably down and out-of-sorts.  I’m a naturally nervy and kind of obsessive kind of person at the best of times, so it can be a struggle for me to fight down this kind of thing long enough to do a comic for the week.  If you’re the same way, and you work in nay kind of competitive field like the arts or the applied arts, as I do, let me tell you: the answer is NOT to look at what anyone else is doing, because you’ll whip yourself up into a spiral of self-doubt and depression that’ll just run right out of control.  I made this mistake this week.  Don’t do it.  Ugh.

Anyway, I’m going to try to get a fresh start tomorrow.  All the best, everyone.  See you next week!
