Summertimes is fun times.

So, that thing happened again. The one where the weather starts getting nice and all these fun thing happen, and start thinking "Wow, White River Junction Vermont is a such great place to live! Why would I ever leave?"

Some examples of the fun:

Took a quick, weekend trip up there with Jess n' Jonch where we were caught in several torrential thunderstorms, worshiped at the feet of a glamorous comedy god, and I forgot to drink coffee and ended up with a migraine.

Montreal was the frenchiest place I've ever been, having never been to France. Or...anywhere really. I discovered pretty quickly that my two years of high school french and one year of college were pretty worthless. I mean, I can still read it okay- or at least well enough to figure out what sandwich I want on the menu and point to it. But I've totally forgotten how to speak it- assuming I ever knew.

The reason for driving three hours towards the frozen, frenchy North, was to attend the annual "Just for Laughs" festival and try to catch a glimpse of Noel Fielding, because I'm still obsessed with the Mighty Boosh and Jess thinks he's pretty.


The weekend after that, a group of us went cabin camping up in the Northeast Kingdom.

Where it was cold, but we endured. Thankfully we had a Texan, Keny, along to take care of the grilling. It was an amazing spread. There was also a lot of drinking games, but wussed out and went to bed at like 11pm.

I know this entry is a little contradictory, because I start off talking about how much fun WRJ is in the summer, but all these good times happened a couple hours' drive away from here. But, all the fun times happened because I live in a town with these cartoonists and creative types who are good at thinking up fun things to do, and WRJ is just a couple hours drive from all sorts of cool places. Future summer plans include a quick jaunt to Maine for a free concert, and a long weekend in Boston with visiting family.

Comics are being drawn too, I swear. There are 2-3 new minis planned for SPX, provided this new printer I'm trying doesn't rip me off (their prices are so low, I'm really afraid they're gonna rip me off). But by then it will be Fall, and I'll start to hate it here again.

Stupid constant threat of snow.


  1. Summer is the best! If that printer works out, can you share their information?

  2. If this printer works out, I will be singing their praises all across the internet!
