Greetings, reader! Today I'm celebrating crawling one year closer to death by sharing Episode 293 with you! Mai uses the tried and true method of peer pressure to coerce Rika into a day of utter slacking... but at what cost? Will she ever know the gentle caress of a chair again?
It has certainly been a busy season. I am currently miles and miles away from OHP Base Camp, supervising holiday processions and ensuring the new year arrives without a hitch in West Virginia. So far, everything's gone according to plan; I've even been offered tasty treats by the locals. Combined with a mild winter, this truly is a Christmas Miracle.
I was pretty bummed to find out that Ricky Garduno is no longer with us. I never knew him personally, but I was a silent admirer of his work. Though his absence will definitely leave a void in the world of webcomics, one can hope that he's finally found the peace that he'd been craving. He was a talented guy and he will be missed.
On a less sad note, the Holiday Special will make its annual reappearance upon my return at
the beginning of January some point. Until then, stay frosty and have a bodacious holiday season!
