Search and Research #66

So, all of this started with me reading a book about coincidences. I thought "Marc could start having coincidences, and get more and more agitated. It'll be great!" But, it turned out that the coincidences were sort of hard to visually translate. For instance, in this one, I tried to indicate that even though two different people were holding different conversations, they said the same exact thing at the same time. But I'm still not sure if it came across that way. Also, I had to start asking myself, where am I going with this? I was sort of stuck, so a big shout out goes to my friend Jason, for bailing me out of this story line. New story next week. Enjoy!

Many of you probably noticed that last week was pretty spotty in terms of getting strips up. I'm afraid (and also delighted) that I'm starting to get art projects to work on outside of the realm of comic strips. As a result, the next couple of months may see fewer strips. I apologize for this, but it is a situation that I've been hoping to find myself in. I also apologize for not updating that strip viewer in a while. I've had time at home to get online to check my email and that's about it. I'll try to get it updated soon. Ok, that's all the housekeeping business I have right now. On to the strip! Enjoy!

As Sunday was Easter, I decided to spend most of the day with my family, watching the latest episode of The Office, and not drawing a strip. I'd like to thank my friend Jason's wife Angela for her help with this strip, she came up with the phrase Mega-Byte Sandwich. As you can see, that is a hard drive on a bun, with a bite (byte) out of it. For any of you who don't know, that really is what the inside of a hard drive looks like. If I had it to draw over, I think I'd put the bite out of the other side of the bun so that it's more visible. Oh well. Enjoy!

And thus ends the saga of the staff meeting. I have to say that given the way some students treat the library, I'm surprised that we haven't yet had someone bring in a Foreman grill and start cooking.

Speaking of cooking, the smoke in this story was inspired by the people who work in a non-library related department below our library. Our fire alarm went off a couple of months ago and we found that the reason was that someone in that department had cooked a microwave pizza in the microwave too long and it caught fire. It was good that none of us had a sledgehammer that day...Enjoy!

I feel that I must stress that I've never been in a staff meeting like the one portrayed here, but given the past meetings that this staff mentioned, smoke setting off the sprinkler system can't be as bad as an opossum getting stuck behind the radiator. Right? That's what I think anyway. Enjoy!

Wow, has it only been a week? It seems like much longer. Sorry for not getting a strip up last week, early on I had a bad stomach thing happening which felt like a small dwarf was in my stomach poking it from the inside with a fork. I then took the last half of the week off to celebrate my birthday.

This is picking up the staff meeting story line, and introducing the character of the library director. I'm still sort of tweaking her appearence, so don't be suprised if there are changes the next time she appears. Enjoy!
