I just started babbling like an idiot about how much I liked the TV show “Wonder Falls”.
Echo has always been by the book when she does shows. I, on the other hand, have always been nervous crossing borders. With a comic called “Devil’s Panties” I can’t NOT get into trouble.
As far as “contraband” we had two boxes of Devil’s Panties books with us. That’s what was hiding in the microwave and toilet. I was nervous because there had been a ton of horror stories about people getting held for trying to bring comics books into Canada. Especially if it sounded remotely pornographic. This had me on edge for weeks.
The company was legitimate. Obby researched them before I sent out the paperwork (which had ALL the things that people tell you that you should NEVER give out!). But it was still terrifying to put all of that into an envelope. The FedEx Kinkos guy had to rip it out of my clenched hands. I figured, hell, I’ve already given my identity up to the internet, what’s a couple more documents? ….
As far as I know, my identity is still my own (as much as it is). There’s still some adventures with getting the paperwork all in. I haven’t written those cartoons yet. Hell, I haven’t written tomorrows cartoon yet. I’ve got piles and piles of notes, but I haven’t straitened them all out just yet. This is what happens when I don’t have conventions to force me into a buffer.
I look positively crazed in my new passport photo.
5am at Kinko’s having a panic attack makes for a wonderful picture.
people in the comments section have asked, so here it is. Me looking a bit psycho at 5am in Kinko’s three hours before I cross the boarder. More on that later.
