In the spirit of making the most out of what you have …
Hart Brachen (blog/strip author):
OK, Hart here, so last night I lost power at my humble abode for 6 hours or so, and this morning I have no internet connection from home forcing me to transmit this brief bit from one of Dick Cheney's secret bunkers. (Yeah, he added my retina scan to the entrance list and shit. Big fan of the strip and all.)
Meanwhile, I do believe our beloved, esoteric, unofficial fête known as "Truck Day" is to occur on this coming Monday, and, in honor of the occasion, I created a commemorative t-shirt that I may or may not choose to unveil and sell to you, the fickle public.
See, it's like this: The design is, er, lacking. Let me put it this way, if the designs Chris and Emily create at The Red Seat are Major League quality, well, this one I did is Rookie Advanced short season at best.
I mean it's the kind of t-shirt you might see hanging at a Marlboro smokey, deep-fried-Oreo smelling, truck stop off I-95 somewhere in North Carolina hanging on a rack between the Dale Earnhardt and "These Colors Don't Run" t-shirts.
With that said, it's not nearly as bad as, say, the typical Olympics Mascot, so who knows. We'll see how I feel on Monday.
Meanwhile, if you're going through Soxaholix withdrawal, I suggest revisiting one of my personal faves: "How long you been a Yankees fan?"
