Dave Sim's blogandmail #36 (October 17th, 2006)
TODAY'S BLOG & MAIL IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY
THE WORLD'S STRANGEST
AND MOST MYSTERIOUS
FRIENDS OF CEREBUS
FAN CLUB PACKAGE
RETURNED BY THE POST OFFICE
IN DENVER COLORADO
DEC. 14, 1983
ADDRESSED TO HUGH C. STRIBLING, THE PACKAGE IS OPEN AND BY PEERING IN YOU CAN SEE THAT IT CONTAINS A STAPLED BUT NEVER FOLDED COPY OF NEWSLETTER #9 BUT THAT'S ALL THAT YOU CAN DETERMINE BECAUSE AT SOME POINT THE ENVELOPE FLAP HAS BECOME SEALED TO THE COPY OF NEWSLETTER #9 SO THERE'S NO WAY TO REMOVE THE CONTENTS OF THE ENVELOPE WITHOUT TEARING THE COPY AND THE ENVELOPE! WHAT MYSTERIOUS PIECE OF PAPER IS THAT LURKING BENEATH THE NEWSLETTER? IS IT A MEMBERSHIP CERTIFICATE? A RENEWAL NOTICE? A FORM LETTER? A REAL LETTER EXPLAINING WHY THE NEWSLETTER IS UNFOLDED? UNLESS SOMEONE CHOOSES TO TEAR AWAY THE ENVELOPE, PERMANENTLY DAMAGING THE ISSUE 9 NEWSLETTER IT'S VERY POSSIBLE THAT
MANKIND WILL NEVER KNOW!!!
INCLUDING TODAY THIS HAS TO BE THE TWENTIETH TIME IN AS MANY YEARS THAT I'VE OPENED THE ENVELOPE AND SPENT FIVE MINUTES REMEMBERING WHY IT IS THAT I CAN'T GET THE CONTENTS OUT!
I'M WILLING TO GIVE THIS AWAY TO THE FIRST PERSON TO BUY A TRADE PAPERBACK TODAY!
TAKE IT! TAKE THE CURSED THING!

Okay, it looks as if I'm going to make it. A week's worth of Blog & Mail entries all finished before the Maghrib prayer on the "Day in the Blog & Mail Life". Seventeen hours ago I was just waking up from my "See you at the St. James" movie dream. Except for my short walk down to Sherwood and back and my hour-or-so-nap, this is all that I've done today.
These are the kinds of things I think of when people ask "So how are you enjoying your retirement?"
