  1. come on lady, we don’t come here for sap!

    i kid, i kid… ever plan on moving back to SF? that’s hopefully where me and the lady friend will end up. NYC seems super rad, but man… fuck cold weather.

  2. Aw.
    If only you could be in New York and San Francisco at the same time. Maybe if you keep riding your bike with your eyes closed you’ll figure out how.

  3. Ah, I just moved too (to SF as it were) and I get nostalgic and homesick a little.
    but I love it here and maybe you’ll end up loving NY just as much as SF

  4. laura- I wont ever love NY as much as SF, but I’m definitely more fascinated by NY. But it’s the kind of fascination where once I’ve had enough, I’ll be ready to go back to sleepy san francisco, which has just enough crazy to keep me from being bored, but not as much crazy as NY that just constantly boggles my mind.
    mike- both bike and I were fine, it just jostled the boxes off which burst open on the street.

    “My brother made up a song when he was a kid, but it was really just him saying “come on you dirty punk” over and over again.”

    haha i like that song

  5. I got my comics!!! They didn’t look too banged up. I figured that was a “feature.” Kind of like the gimmick covers of comics from the 90’s

  6. I got my makers mark notebook! People took notice in a meeting yesterday. Turned into a classic exchange: “Worse than being an alcoholic, like me.” “You’re not a– wait, is that a bottle of makers?!” “Well, at least he’s not a fukin tool!”

    Also, yay for bike. Thinking about it I’m surprised there wasn’t a comic about receiving it from SF. Hehe, via bike-mail.

  7. SF and NY both rock – shame they’re so far apart. Though SF is top in my book (I’m not moving).

    Glad to hear you’re enjoying it now though. When I moved to London it was a full year before I really began to enjoy it (beyond the first month honeymoon when I got myself into even more debt).

  8. Ah, sentimental. I’m the same, but probably worse, which is why I’ll probably never permanently leave California or the Bay Area.

  9. Bike riding songs are the greatest. I have a bike rap!

    You should move back to the city, I rode around all day and it was sunny and warm and breezy. ahhh

  10. Ah, the good old days,when panel borders where drawn with a ruler…
    It would be awesome if the crying ballon man came out of nowhere to help you after the bike accident.

  11. Your bout with nostalgia made me wonder if you will continue, over the decades, to draw yourself as an twenty something or will your image slowly age; a la Gasoline Alley.

  12. You should put milk crate on the back of your bike. When I was a poor college student this did wonders for me on grocery shopping day.

  13. {Sigh.} I kind of know the feeling. I really enjoyed college…and saw a lot of Picard star trek while there.
    If I watch star trek NG now, I usually have to say: TR, snap out of it! You’re not in your fun college years, anymore. Darn my nostalgia fits.
