I want to let everyone of my readers and fellow web-comic artists know that I wish you all a very Happy New Year! May 2007 bring many more delights and benefits in your life, as well as many resolutions to be broken.
So I didn’t get to see the ball drop in NYC this New Year’s Eve. Not quite an unfortunate event, because it doesn’t really mean much to watch it on TV, but then again I can’t remember a time when I didn’t watch the ball drop. I was spending some time with a few family friends of mine and their TV wasn’t working so we couldn’t watch it. Not too bad an incident. The food was good, and there was the ceremonial throwing of money on the floor for good luck. Of course, the kids took to it like ravage beasts, so that was entertaining too. Who needs TV when you can see small 9 year old kids duke it out over quarters and one-dollar bills? 😀
These two past weeks have been a blur, but a good blur. I got to meet up with some friends of mine who I haven’t seen in months, and it’s good to know that I got to see them before I go. “Go where?,” you ask. Well, I’ll be headed alone overseas tomorrow on an evening flight to the Philippines. I’m going to be spending two weeks there with my friends Niki, Elise, Rianna, and Kat. It’ll be my first time to the motherland, so it should be a fun time. I’ll be visiting Boracay, one of the top 10 rated beaches in the world, among other things. I’m excited to be going on this trip, and I really do think I need to get away from things for awhile. Let’s just hope that my flight doesn’t get botched up in some strange way.
So off I go to shower and get some more things ready. The next comic will not be following a story-line, but will kind of be a PBC Special Edition copy. As a Secret Santa gift during a recent gift-exchange I took part in, I promised my friend BJ that I’d do a self-portrait of him and publish him in my comic for a one-issue deal. However, depending on what reactions I get to his character he may make a few more appearances along the line so make sure to shoot me some feedback when it’s finally uploaded to the site.
Anyway, that’s it I have for now. My friend Kim is having her birthday tomorrow and I’ll be seeing her and her sister Melissa too right before I leave so it should be fun. So guys, continue what you’re doing and continue having fun. I’ll see you guys in two weeks.
