Best Week Ever - Pi(e) Day and St. Patrick's Day

I rarely get excited.  I'm known for being stoic.  Actually, I like the label, but it is a week like this I can barely contain myself.  My two favorite holidays are in the same week, Pi(e) Day and St. Patrick's Day.  Pi(e) day comes on Wednesday, March 14th (3.14) and whoa contain yourself, Saturday is St. Pat's Day.  

What? You may ask is so fantastic about March 14th.  Fair question.  I just think it is fun to have a day that encourages the consumption of PIE.  It is quirky and I prefer pie over cake any day.  So I'm looking forward to getting my pie on Wednesday.  Now I can't decide rather to indulge and enjoy a slice of pie by myself or purchase a whole pie and bring it home to share with my lovely and understanding wife.  In previous years I would involve one of my son's, typically my younger who seemed to tolerate my quirkiness better.  Well he moved out last month.  Leaving me with an empty nest and no pie eating buddy.  Maybe I'll text both of them right now, share the excitement and show them my love for each...them and pie.  (10 minutes later and no reply...I thought they were the text generation)

St. Patrick's Day is really just an excuse to drink.  But really who needs an excuse to drink beer, maybe Irish whiskey also?  I like this holiday because it doesn't require any gifts or cards. (Although stupid me should encourage the card exchange since I'm a card drawing cartoonist).  Like a lot of holidays it does come with its own menu; corned beef, cabbage and potatoes.  Yum.  Food that I don't bother to eat any other time of the year,  like turkey and honey baked hams.

Go get a pie and don some green Saturday and drink a beer.   Just because there is no gift and no cards doesn't mean you can't indulge yourself.

Doodle Psychic

So I saw this commercial on TV the other day and I  thought; that looks really familiar.  Then I realized why.  I doodled a very similar doodle.

Goals Are For Losers. Happy New Year

I've got some doodles, but been really busy, gave my scanning printer to my wife who has her office on another floor of the house.  So it hasn't been convenient to get anything scanned in to up load.  I did these scans and forgot to do them at gray scale rather than b/w.  So they are a bit sketchy, but I just don't have the motivation to go re-scan them.

If you are older than 40 most likely you've seen the Bugs Bunny cartoons with the martian that keeps trying to blow up Earth, then you get this reference.

If you've ever read Scott Adams', Dilbert creator and cartoonist, book "How To Fail At Almost Everything and Still Win Big" then you will get this reference about goals are for losers.

I'm toying around with giving Earl a different nose.  The thought came to me because I have a greeting card for sale on Boon Greeting Cards, that is a top seller during Valentine's Day season where the guy looks similar to Earl but has a different nose.  Thought maybe franchising his image into more cards and such might be a route to pursue.  Hence Earl needed a nose job.
