Sorry for the lack of a new comic this morning, everyone. I spent last night shoveling our driveway with 3 ft. drifts in it and I just didn’t have any energy left over for a comic.

Normally, it wouldn’t be a problem. But I think the late nights with Pearl are catching up with me. I also started a new job on Monday. Well, sort of. It’s a contract position for the next 90 days, but I’m getting acclimated and it’s kind of stressful. It didn’t help that the idea I had for Friday’s comic was somewhat complicated to draw.

I hate flaking out on this stuff because I’ve always been a firm believer in picking an update schedule and sticking with it. I want to give you guys as few excuses for leaving the comic as possible. But this is just one of those situations where life is pummeling the crap out of me right now.

I hope to have a new comic for you either later tonight or early Saturday morning. Keep checking back.

Or, if you have a Facebook account, join the new Theater Hopper Facebook group. That’s a great way to stay notified. Comic updates will be published directly to your wall.

Of course, barring that, there’s always Twitter. I’m on that thing all the time.

Thanks for your patience and understanding everyone. Hopefully things will go back to normal and I can work myself into a routine in the near future!
