Well today is officially the 240th birthday of the United States Marine Corps.
A traditional custom of the Marine species is to greet one another with “Happy Birthday” on the day of the birthday. Of course, it’s not actually their birthday, and despite Abe’s insistence, there’s no obligation to get Marines a “birthday present.” Still though, if you want to buy me a birthday present, I’m not going to stop you.
I really won’t.
Don’t forget that tomorrow is Veteran’s Day! If you can conceal your moto-boner long enough to make it into a public setting, there’s plenty of places offering free meals to soak up your post-birthday bash hangovers.
We Are the Mighty has prepared a fairly comprehensive list of 71 restaurants offering free shit Here is a huge list of restaurants offering free shit tomorrow! You should definitely check it out and take advantage of it.
Every time I post about getting free food there’s always some douche in the comments that says “I don’t do that, I have honor
and am too busy sniffing my own farts“ or some lame shit like that. Whatever, I’m not going to feel bad about eating free shit from a mega corporation who’s only doing it because it brings business. I’ll eat my unhealthy shit food and I’ll enjoy it, because it’s free, like America.
Only someone anti-American would deny freedom.
Speaking of freedom, The White Donkey is finished. I’ve sent the book to the printer and now I feel… free? I don’t know, it’s a weird feeling. I’ve had this massive thing over my shoulders for the last 2 years, and now I can finally move on to the next thing. For those of you wondering why it took so long, I’m just going to tell you that it just happens to take 2 years to make a 250 page graphic novel by yourself. Go figure. I’ll be posting an update for backers only soon! I know a ton of you need to change your addresses and stuff, I’m going to spend the time in between now and Thanksgiving getting all of that sorted out, just stand by for a couple more days.
As for me, I have a lot I want to do. Now that I can, I believe I’m going to be leaving the Bay Area. I’ll be spending some time with my family in my home state of Oregon at the beginning of the year, and relocating to Los Angeles after that. I love San Francisco, but I’m at a very transitional stage of my life at the moment. I think LA is where I need to be to make my goals happen, at least for now.
The book will be available before Christmas.
