Happy Birthday, Ginger! I don’t know why Kelly would think this was a good gift idea. That said, my birthday (turning 30… ugh) is on Thursday so if anyone wants to get me something cray…
Also happy fifth anniversary of Ginger’s Bread! I really wish we were back to regular updates like I wanted, but life is crap like that. Here’s hoping the next five years go better than the last few. Thank you all for sticking with us though. I’m unbelievably touched by your support. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so very much for reading and being part of this.
Hey, an invite for those in the San Francisco Bay area (or close enough to make the trip): Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is playing a show on November 16th at Brick and Mortar and I’m totally pretending it’s a birthday party for me. We can also pretend it’s a party for Ginger’s Bread’s 5th anniversary! We can dance and have fun. Dance like this robot! Bring friends! Let’s sell out their show! (SSLYBY is on tour for a few more weeks, hit up one of their shows if it’s nearby!)
I know someone will ask: Ginger is 28 in the comic. She’s really 29 in the real world (Her birthday is November 10, 1984) but because of horrible updates over the past few years, the passage of time in the comic is getting weird. The Hiatus Comics take place after the storyline we interrupted. Time in the comic used to correlate with reality but now it’s more free form because of a want for story telling freedom (and because hiatuses killed timing a bit). So the time in the comic is at least a year ago but technology/entertainment keeps up with the real world so I can continue to make jokes! If that’s confusing, I’ll try to answer any questions you may have.
Oh, and here’s a post about Pokémon X/Y where we’re collecting Friend Codes! I’ll continue adding them as I see them (and can get my 3DS online).
I’m still hoping to get some time to work on comics this month. I may only end up with one month of buffer complete when we come back in January but that’s MINIMUM!
I think that’s all I have for now? I’ll add more if I remember more to add. Otherwise, last comic of the year is coming December 9th!
THANK YOU FOR READING! SERIOUSLY, THANK YOU! Here’s to 5 more years!
