Spring Break: Vacation Means “Getting Away.”

Pretty much non-fiction, that plan.  Except for the part where Horsey has clearly stolen the Nautilus.

After the Odinsleep, and performing a wedding ceremony during happy hour at a mexican restaurant, what does one do?

They pick up their comics on Wednesday night, and then take a four hour drive to the Paso Robles wine country. They hire a river, so that excessive amounts of wine can be “tasted” without running the risk of a nasty ticket for driving while soused. Most importantly, they stay in a fancy place.

That’s pretty much the plan. Tomorrow, I will grace many a tasting room, holding forth my tired little debit card with a “shut up and take my money!” expression on my face.

There is apparently some kind of natural sulphur spring hot tub here as well. It’s kind of like the treatments that they gave FDR, so there’s a chance I’ll have to fight a zombie president too. All good, really, all good.

Expect the next couple of postings to be this pithy, by the way. It is Spring Break, loyal reader, and even Superman takes some time off. I’ve been thinking about that. Whenever he goes out on a date with Lois (or Lana, for that matter) the time it takes for him to eat his beef stroganoff is time that he COULD have been stopping a tornado, putting out a fire, or otherwise saving lives. Kind of selfish, that.

However, I get it. Even if there were students in my classroom RIGHT NOW, I would be no good to them at all without some R and R. Some time to relax, be odd, and generally rejuvenate.

I was so excited by the Nautilus reference (Disney and Alan Moore can be mad at me at the same time!) that I colored the last panel. I intend to make it into some kind of spring break knick knack. Enjoy the color version below…

I've been trying for a color effect that I'm still not completely happy with.  Oh...and Disney?  Mr. Moore?  The Nautilus is public domain, as you know...

If you’re suddenly interested in the Nautilus from “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne, click here. Pretty awesome web site, with various interpretations of Verne’s description into model form.

Until Friday’s post, Bon Nuit! (That’s “good night,” by the way.)
