Metapost: Greetings from scenic Brooklyn
Hi there everybody! I’ve had some really awesome and great experiences in New York this weekend, both at the ROFL! shindig Friday night (at which I was not victorious, but that’s OK, since I was really nervous and I think I did my best stuff in the first round) and at the Mocca artfest today. At both, I had lots of encounters with many fine Comics Curmudgeon readers, who are without exception awesome and friendly and fun and good looking. I will be posting a somewhat longer account of my experiences, naming individuals and offering a few pictures, soon! But for now I just want to say that you were all cool and I loved talking to you and I really appreciate all of you reading my site and being fans.
You know who I don’t like and don’t appreicate, however? The New York traffic enforcement department, who towed and impounded our car for being in a bus stop zone, despite the fact that we were not, in fact, in a bus stop zone.
You know who else I don’t like or appreciate? The Maryland MVA, for putting the wrong license plate number on our vehicle registration, which means that that NY traffic enforcement won’t release our car back to us.
New posts coming when we get the hell out of New York, which may be, you know, never.
Update: Slight retraction: Having now strolled past the sad, empty spot where our car used to be, I have to admit that it is in fact a bus stop. A very poorly marked bus stop, but a bus stop nonetheless.
Nevertheless, they’re still being dicks about the license plate issue. Come on you bastards the VIN number on the registration matches and you saw that OUR GOD-DAMNED KEYS OPENED THE DOOR why on earth would we be trying to grift you out of a 1994 Toyota Corrolla for fuck’s sake.
Second update: WE (“WE” BEING “AMBER, THE CAR, AND MYSELF”) ARE BACK IN BALTIMORE. COTW COMING TONIGHT; MORE TO FOLLOW LATER SOON MAYBE.
