Looky, there's a new site design. It's based on something from wicked designs, but I did a little customization and I made the logo all by my little graphic design-challenged self. Go, me. I think the new color scheme is more "me" than that hideous pink - I don't know what the fark I was thinking when I went through that pink phase. Anyway, if you love it, hate it, have suggestions, or want to tell me to go fux0r myself, holler at me. (Yes, I know that I promised ass in the redesign, but I changed my mind. My apologies.)
I'm getting all excited about the Comic-con. I'm leaving Friday morning to go there and wallow in geekiness for three days. I've been attending it every year for the past 10 years. Yes, yes, I know, I'm a major geek. Anyway, I'm especially looking forward to it because I will be staying at a kickass hotel. I really enjoy staying in hotels, which is one of the things I miss the most about working as a consultant. I used to get to travel constantly on somebody else's dime and have stayed in some really beautiful hotels. I'll still enjoy it, but it's just a teeny bit more enjoyable when it's free.
Tonight I will be busy printing comics for the convention. I don't have a booth this year, mainly because we didn't have time to finish the full-length comic that we're collaborating on, so I'll just be walking around at the convention handing out copies of the existing book and saying hi to all my old industry buddies. The lady will join me, but I think that she might only be able to stomach one day of geekiness; for the uninitiated, the Comic-con can be kind of overwhelming, unless you speak fluent Klingon or know the mutant powers of all of the X-Men. My guess is that she'll become fairly well acquainted with the folks in room service, and who can blame her, really? There's only so much Comic-con a non-geek can take.

I've decided to try to treat my body a little better. I've been eating like crap and drinking too much in the last couple of months, so in a (possibly futile) attempt to repair the damage, I've stopped drinking altogether and switched to the always fun low-carb diet. I've done this before, and I always end up feeling great and looking amazing, but the first week or so sucks major ass. Also, it is very difficult to maintain a low-carb diet when you can't prepare your own meals all the time. I've basically been stuck eating the grilled chicken caesar salad from Boston Market, like, every day, and when I can't leave the office for lunch I eat MetRx Protein Plus bars. Feh. When I get home, I have a plethora of eating options, mainly because we have recently added the George Foreman Grill to our assortment of kitchen accessories. My lovely lady has been making me tasty protein-filled treats for dinner, so I haven't been tempted to eat any junk.
Of course, I'll have to take a break in this enjoyable diet when I go to San Diego next weekend for the Comic-con. (I told you I was a comic book geek.) I have a handful of friends that I only get to see once a year at the comic book geekfest, and most of them are drunks, so I think I'll have to consume a little grease and vodka while I'm there. But never fear - when I get back I'll get right back on that whole "keeping myself healthy" thing. I swear.
I've promised a redesign of this site for some time. Not that anybody reads this, anyway, but it's really for my own personal satisfaction. I enjoy the solid color background and bland imageless content as much as the next guy, but I also enjoy ass, and so ass will be a major theme in the redesign. You will just have to wait (with bated breath, I hope - want a mint?) till I get around to doing it.
Until then, go sponsor Jake in the Blogathon. Then keep him company in his IRC channel while he's furiously blogging away for charity.
