original_post:_8/15/2002_______________ It's easy not to notice in these commentary strips, but there were some big gaps in updates during the summer of 2002. I was finishing up a stint at my summer job drawing caricatures in Virginia, and had decided to move to California. There were some gaps here and there in figuring out where I was living, and how I was getting there. This affected being able to use internet connections, which were not all wireless and easy to jump on like they are now. Hi, I'm old. Anyway, this scene was based on a rare fraternity party that I went to. I didn't go to many, and I don't recommend it. These parties are loud, gross, sweaty (in a bad way) and generally are not fun. But I assume that if you are drunk, you become a lot less picky about your parties.
