The Stench of Honolulu by Jack Handey


I’ve read or listened to The Stench of Honolulu by Jack Handey  five times in the past couple of weeks. I start other books, but then I think of a funny Wrong Way Slurps moment and I go back. I guess I’ll give up on other books. They’re usually too long anyway.

Rey Kenobi (or Skywalker or Nunb or whatever)


I’m hoping Rey isn’t related to anyone else in the Star Wars but as a friend put it, “She is a kenobi bc they always tie it together bc kiddie movies always tie things together.”

Serotona with Electro-Shock Powers

Just messing around with character design ideas for the main character in Frank Conniff’s awesome radio play, The Agoraphobic Action League.  She has electro-shock powers but they bring on severe depression when she uses them. Consequently, she’d rather lie down on the couch than fight crime.


Percolady, Assemble!


I’m enjoying Frank Conniff’s podcast, Podhouse 90. The Agoraphobic Action League is a classic. The one-liners bring laughs and groans, the fun kind, but most of all, it’s got heart. I can relate to its message about depression, I’m sure lots of people can. I can see it as a comic, something like those great Archie comics of yore.


My Favorite Art Teacher


The topic for Sketch Dailies today was ‪#‎MyFavArtTeacher‬. It was an easy choice for me. Mr. Wolfgang taught me so much more than art. I still can’t watercolor my way out of a wet paper bag, but the critical thinking skills he taught stuck.

I have a fond memory of a field trip where he played banjo on the bus. I wish I could remember the songs they sang. He played along with someone on guitar, but they were both drowned out by an excitable tambourine boy. Didn’t bother Mr. Wolfgang a bit.
